If you like to carry one DSLR and a few lenses wherever you go, look no further. I find the UD 40 V2 to be a VERY COMFORTABLE bag for a 1 DSLR and 3 lens setup. It is small, non-obtrusive, does not look like a camera bag, and it is made from tough material. The V2 really made it possible with the expansion zipper!

To put things into perspective, I put these items in my bag:

* Canon 40D with grip & either one of these lenses attached (the other two is also in the bag):
* 70-200mm F/4L IS
* Tamron 17-50mm
* Sigma 10-20mm
* 430EX flash
* Extra batteries, memory cards, pens, filters, etc.

Yes, this bag fits a gripped body with a 70-200mm F/4 attached! (no, F/2.8 attached to a body won't fit sorry).

1 camera and 3 lenses are more than enough when you're just casually going out or want to travel light.

I find that this is the maximum I'd go for a shoulder bag; any more would put too much stress on one shoulder. You should look into a backpack if you want more gear.

So why 4 stars? Well, my gear is growing and I start to use this more at photoshoots and other, more serious, events. I plan to add another body and lens, so I'm looking at the UD 70 for a 2 camera body bag. Otherwise, I would definitely stick to this one.

I have been using an Urban Disguise 30 for some time and recently purchased this for the extra capacity and the ability to attach additional accessories when needed - especially the flash holder. The whole system works very well and gives good protection, easy access, a surprising amount of space and some "stealth" security: it really doesn't look like a camera bag. I used it on an overnight train trip in a roomette with very tight luggage space and it held a 5DMkII, 24-105L, 100-400L, 50, 85, remotes & cables, spare batteries and a small Giotto's Rocket blower with some room to spare. I attached the flash carrier for my Speedlight and the whole thing took very little space.I don't think my larger backpack would have even fit into the compartment. The UD40 was also very easy to deal with when walking through narrow corridors on a moving train - I'm not leaving my stuff in an unlocked roomette. Overall this is a valuable piece of gear.
