Default Shoulder bag for a t2i w/ extra lens

What's your preference to hold a T2i with an extra lens and accessories - shoulder bag format? Having sorted through the long list of bags available, I'm partial (based on specs) to the Lowepro Nova 170 AW. Perhaps a little roomier than absolutely necessary for the body, but room for extras.

What bags have you been happy with for this limited assortment?

I went with Crumpler for my T2i, I got the 6 MDH, but then I have a longer telephoto lens that needed the extra height of the 6, other wise I would have gone with the 5 MDH. I have room for three extra lens and a flash, plus pockets for the little stuff. I like the arrangement and the protection.

I also went with the Crumpler 6 million dollar home with my T1i. Although I do not have an extra long lens, I do have have a flash, 430exII. I am able to put pretty much everything I have into it with room to grow...

Oh yah, main reason I went with the 6MDH is that I wanted something that I could put my camera in with a battery grip. Check out youtube for videos on the MDH.

I went with the Crumpler Pretty Boy XXXL - enough space for my gear (450D, 18-55, 55-250) and all the small things that belong to the camera. There would be enough space for a third lens or a flash like the 430 EX II - so it's perfect for all my needs

i use this bad boy for my XSI, 3 lenses and a flash (plus other small accessories) with some room to spare for another few lenses.
I prefer backpacks, since it gives me both of my arms free equally.

Picking up my T2i last week and I will have the camera and two lenses (Tamron 17-50 and tokina 11-16). Then i use this Leisure double shoulder backpack. Because I like the functionality and comfort of backpacks, but definitely don't want the unnecessary attention they attract.
