    any specific brand of camera bag I should opt for? Or any to avoid? I currently have a crumpler one but as I was cycling with it on, it caught in the wheel and made a huge gash down the front:

    what are the equipments you want to put in?
    what is your budget?
    Do you prefer shoulder bag or backpack?

    At the most a camera and a lens, around $30-$60 (pound symbol isn't working.)
    shoulder bag.

    I'm basically wanting personal opinions from someone who can recommend me a decent bag

    I don't have any shoulder bag, but I have a lowepro slingshot 200 and can thoroughly recommend it. Good when you are cycling, under your budget, and fit your kits no problem.

    Get a bag twice as large as you think you'll need! Wink

    I've got a National Geographic shoulder bag that I love... and it doesn't look like everyone else and their dog's Lowepro.

    Totally agree. I have one and it's now my main bag.

    Another vote for the Slingshot 200. Not so big it will get caught while you're cycling, but big enough to take an (D)SLR, up to five lenses, and accessories.

    And that's excellent advice, too.

    Another vote for the slingshots. If you want to go lighter, the Slingshot 100 is good as well, though you have to be more economic with what you squeeze into it.
