The Kata one I am also looking at is the 3n1-10. So that is pretty equal in size to the aero 75 and both will hold my camera with a 70-200mm lens attached?

Yes it will, it will actually hold a slight longer then the the 70-200 attach to a body.

I am a pretty small person (5'3") so lightweight and not too big are key for me. I need the quick access so as to not miss what my young kids are up to. I am liking the kata 3n1-10 a little better over the aero but I am wondering if the velocity 8x would just be better considering it's a little smaller? I don't have to a camera shop that carries all these brands within close proximity so have to rely on ordering online. One other thing that is kind of off topic, I need a tripod for the beach that is compact, very lightweight. Any recommendations on that?

I got a velocity 6x do to the size, great for when I am biking around the city with my t1i and 70-300mm and kit lens.

You may actually get away with a velocity 7x. You can put the flash in the folded position and short lens and the long lens mounted to the camera. And use the front pocket for your little items. But the 8x will let you carry a bit more stuff.

I worry about the 7x because it claims it can only fit a 6" lens. The 70-200f4 IS is 6 7/8".

I can fit the 70-300mm mounted to the T1i to the smaller 6x, the 6 inch lens this is for the side slots in the bag for the additional lenses you are carrying. So if you are planning to have the smaller lens mounted when packed, the the 7x will be a bit small.

PS you may want to youtube the tamrac velocity 7x to see how big it is so you will know if it is to small

Default Lowepro 100

The Victorinix bag I'm using is a knockoff of the Lowepro Slingshot 100 AW
http://products.lowepro.com/product/...-aw,2034,4.htm

I edc a sony alpha with 75-300mm attached and the smaller zoom too. a flash would fit and i have a p&s and two small tripods inside. If I wanted I could attached a light tripod to the exterior.

You mention a tripod for the beach. Usually when I go to the beach, I bring a cooler. Perhaps putting the camera on a small tripod (even a gorillapod) on top of the cooler will allow you to get the family shots you want. I would suggest not going too big. The temptation to put more stuff into the bag is great. Keep it camera. Enjoy the vacation.

I was looking at Tamrac's Evolution bags, not the Aero bags. The Evolution 6 looked like it was around the size of a Lowepro Slingshot 100 or the Kata 3N1-10. When I have to replace one of my bags I'll seriously look at the Tamrac.

I'm just over 5 foot and had no trouble carrying the Slingshot 200, so you shouldn't have trouble with the smaller sized bags.

The Tamrac 6 looks like a nice bag but it claims to only fit a 5.5" lens. I don't know how that will work with my 200mm lens attached as it is well over 6". I like the idea of a tripod clip on the outside.
