Equipment list in bag :
Canon EOS 40D
Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
Extra CF Cards
Old Vivitar 2500 Flash
My goal was to find the smallest bag possible to hold the 40D and maybe an extra lens/flash. I decided to buy the Velocity 7x, despite no local stores carrying it. I based my decision on the size specs and a few sparse reviews around the web.
After a few weeks using it, I can report that it works, but only barely. Getting the camera in and out is really a two-handed operation.
Your free hand must stretch the bag open at the top to prevent the flash shoe from catching on the fabric. In fact, the thread has started pulling away from the fabric where I wasn`t careful a few times.
The front pocket can hold a good bit of flat stuff. Many CF cards, a GPS device, cables, etc. The bag fits really good over the shoulder and rides high on my back (I`m an average size guy). It`s pretty comfortable.

Dislikes about the bag:
Really too small for Canon 40D, Limited storage space

Reviews for Nikon D70 / D100 / D200 / D300 / D700
I like the Tamrac bag for an everyday bag when out and about. It is compact but still holds quite a bit. My usual package includes the Nikon D70 w/18-70mm kit lens mounted. The SB-800 flash on one side. My 50mm1.8 in the bottom under a
flap, the manual in the front pouch. Extra filters/battery in the top inside.
Unique to this bag is the over the shoulder sling, like a messenger bag. This allows the bag to be swung into position for camera/gear removal and then rotated back out of the way.
There is also a waist belt for holding the bag to your body. Great for hiking.
I have even clipped the 70-200mm VR f/2.8 Nikon lens case to the side of the bag, but it then becomes out of balance, but works in a pinch.

It`s really good bag with LOT of space inside and premium quality.
