The versatile Velocity 5x is a great combo shoulder strap convertible to hip bag. I use it all the time with the shoulder strap for around town and such, but it is great for clipping around the waist for climbs or hikes for stable, easy access. It has a zippered top for quick access to the camera and lenses, as well as a clipped down top. The hip belt tucks away when you're using the shoulder strap.
There are custom dividers for separating the camera from the lenses (up to 3), and it fits my Nikon D50 with the 300mm zoom lens attached (up to 5" long). The foam padding is great for pumping around, gives solid support.
Cinch straps on the hip belt help stabilize the pack. It also features Tamrac's patented Memory & Battery Management System™ that uses red flags to identify available memory cards and batteries from ones that are used up. A pocket inside the lid stores filters and lens caps.
Internal Dimensions: 9½w x 4½d x 8h (24 x 11 x 20cm)
External Dimensions: 12w x 7d x 9¾h (30 x 18 x 25cm)
Weight: 1 lb. 12 oz. (798g)
Overall an awesome bag for mutliple uses. It's a little on the heavy side, but once you start adding 3+lb lenses, you don't even notice it.
