the terraclime 50 from lowepro.

it fits the camera perfectly with lens attached and when the camera is out the bag can fit into a pocket if you wanted.

a great combo for a one camera/lens outing.

how often would you use the latch?
put the camera in and then latch it, take the camera out...shoot for awhile...put the camera in, latch it...go home.

i also use the terraclime 100 and the found the latch system pretty easy to use after a while.

This bag fits the E-P1 + 20mm + VF-1 perfectly as well. I use it eveyday.

The E-P1 + 14-42mm also fits; but, it is a little snugger.

How much can you fit into the 100? I have a Terraclime 30 as well, which allows me to carry an additional lens; but, means I need to carry two bags.

I just wish they had made the latch longer on these bags. You lose almost half the depth of bag when you latch it.

The latch keeps the gear secure, I didn't get the feeling of security with that latch, I am always in and out of my bag. I prefer either velcro, a zipper or leather straps (i.e. Billingham).

Same here. I use inserts and then I can throw the inserts in any bag I own. A Timbuk2 Messenger is my favorite bag because it does well in the weather.
Another good cheap option is an old paratrooper bag like this one:

Amazon.com: Israeli Paratrooper Shoulder Bag: Clothing

I use this when I don't need to carry much. It will still hold a laptop and domke inserts though.

How is the padding on the Terraclime? I think my Crumpler Bundle bag is a pretty snug fit for my GF1 w/ 20mm, but I'm always looking for something better.

I love Timbuk2 messenger bag as well and am looking forward buying one to carry my GF1 + 20mm + 14-140mm.

What's the model of the Domke insert you use for your Timbuk2 when carrying cameras?

My concern is that I am actually getting the XS size of Timbuk2 Classic Messenger (I've already had a Small size one and it's a bit too big for me - I'm 5'2" tall...) Considering the size of GF1 kit, I think XSmall is good enough. I'm just not sure where to find a good insert for it since all the inserts I've seen are quite tall and big...

Any suggestion is highly appreciated!

i use the small inserts made for the f6 domke bag...but i cut them down and duck tape the tops where the cut was made...looks ugly but it works.
