good bag for Fuji X1 pro kit

Summary: purchased this bag for Fuji X1 pro kit for weddings as a supplimentary bag for our main kit Nikons. Does the job, easy access currently holds body and two lens but space for at least two/three other Fuji lens. Did use it on a trip recently, held kit, Ipad, phone ect and suited purpose.
Summary: The bag easily holds a DSLR with normal zoom lens plus telephoto lens and spare battery and cards. I also have plenty of room for the polariser and remote release. It will also take my mini Ipad.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Light Weight
Summary: This bag has room for a selection of kit, and I can fit my Canon 550D plus kit lens, 50mm prime, 70-300 zoom and hot shoe flashgun in the padded section.I used this at a family wedding (just a guest, not the official photographer!), and would at any event where I would want the flexibility of more kit. Roughly the same physical size as the passport sling bag also by Lowepro, but unlike that bag, this storage is all padded and partitioned for camera gear.
Summary: I wanted a bag for 5DM3 with 24-105 lens, plus one alternative lens and room for non-photography gear like: - reading glasses, MP3 player, wet wipes (to clean hands after eating a pasty!), floppy hat (when the sun goes behind the clouds)...I found the bottle holder suitable for this. I also managed to roll up my anorak to fit in the third velcro'd section after shuffling them to suit my camera gear.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Well padded
Cons: Bottle holder is tight, Tablet section is tight
Summary: Being able to get a nikon d7000 a couple of lenses, 2x iPads, point and shoot, external battery and various other bits no problems. From looking around this seems to be the only small bag that can do this without paying over £100.Very impressed over all. my only thought is that it does look like a camera bag and has the lowe pro logo on which when out and about does say 'nick me', a choice of black would have been good for making it a bit more discreet.
Summary: Good quality (usual Lowepro standard) bag offering a decent level of protection for your equipment. Main compartment holds, for example, a Fuji X-Pro1 with three lenses + a Fuji X-100. The supplied dividers are freely moveable to adapt to your needs. Not suitable for large, heavy equipment.
