I replaced my Domke bag with a Tamrac photo backpack. I manage to shove the
following equipment into the thing:

2 Rollei 6006 medium format cameras with film magazines
50 mm f4
150 mm f4
2 film inserts in cases
Metz 40 MZ2 electronic flash
Rollei 35 Classic or a Leica R4 with 35-70 f3.5
Polaroid Spectra
film, batteries, etc.

I'm much, much happier with the backpack than with lugging all that weight on
one shoulder in the Domke bag.
