    LowePro Stealth Reporter series. Nr. 400 would be good for a 645 slr kit.

    Not a very large bag, you'd say looking at it. But i carry a 6x6 SLR with 5 lenses + hoods, two extra backs, prism, 2 extension tubes, meter, and the usual loose bits in one of those.

    I'm not willing to carry anything heavier than my Mamiya 7 and a few lenses in a shoulder bag (I like to walk fairly long distances). It all gets heavy once you add in a tripod and a few flash heads. So that's when I pull out my Mountainsmith Borealis AT backpack. Yes, access is much less convenient, but at least I'm comfortable.

    I don't know. I suppose you could look it up on the website.

    I just carry a tripod in a case over my shoulder. I don't attach it to the bag/

    Robert has a point. When weight goes up, shoulder bags quickly get very uncomfortable, and having either a harness that allows carrying the bag on two shoulders backpack style, or a true backpack will be much better.
    So i'll change my vote from a LowePro shoulder bag to a LowePro backpack. Even the Mini-Trekker is big enough for a medium sized MF kit.

    I use two bags for my M645. The basic kit (camera, 2-3 lenses, 2-3 inserts, film) goes in a Billingham 225. The extended kit (more lenses, spare backs, more inserts) sits in a Billingham Hadley Pro. If I'm going out for a little light shooting I grab the one bag, and if I think I'm going to need it, I'll grab them both.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    +1 for Billingham

    I have a 445 which has seem much use over 20 years +, it's still going strong. All I've had to do is replace the internal padded pockets and the shoulder pad. Apart from that it's looking in good shape.

    It gets used in turn for 35mm kit and mf kit, depending on what I'm shooting most.

    It used to swallow an etrs kit consisting of 2 lenses, 2 backs, prism, speedgrip and Metz 45 flash with out any issue. It is currently housing an SQB with 2 lenses, 2 backs and a prism. With plenty of space left for more.

    Domke F2 works for my Mamiya 645 kit, F1X for the Mamiya RB67 kit.Spend a bit more for the ballistic nylon version and the shoulder-saving strap pad.

    Billingham's are great (I use a Hadley Pro for my DSLR or 35mm kits), but I use a less costly bag for my Mamiya 645. I got this last year from Atlex; it holds a 645/finder, 80mm attached, another lens and smaller stuff. Well padded, compact and appears to be (at least somewhat) water repellent. Walmart sells them as per the link, so you might be able to look at one.

    I'm a bit of an iconoclast and like Crumpler bags.

    I would suggest a Domke F2 or even F-1x. I use the F-1x for my MF outfit and it's just about perfect, I do tend to overload it though, which is why in hindsight I'd go with the F2.
