I used a jacket VERY similar to this at the last wedding I did...however, I bought it from the shooting/hunting/fishing section of the store. It held 2 spare lenses, a flashgun, loads of spare batteries, cloths, CF cards, filters and my Flashtrax! It was great to have the freedom of carrying nothing but my camera....hot though!

Why are so many camera bags black? Yeah I know there are some exceptions, but most of them are too dark to easily find your stuff when out shooting photos.

FreeFly: Yes I have been looking in the outdoor sports store at them :-)They seem to be about 1/3 the cost of similar jackets at the photo stores. But look like they would be better in cool weather.

Normc: I agree, I think black might look trendy but it is hard to see in the dark and heats up nicely in the sun. I think neither a good thing. Not loosing it in the bush(and elsewhere) was my reason for the bright orange for the Pellican case. The store had to special order it in, all theykept in stock was black and silver.

I believe the inside of all the LowePro backpacks are silver, which makes it really easy to see what is going on inside. Some of their packs are green on the outside, but many are black.

I use a Canon Digital SLR bag. It came with a UV Filter and Extra battery for $80, good deal i think. Fits all my stuff, my dRebel, 220EX Speedlite, Tamron 100-300mm, and the charger...
