    Do you think this bag would work for an EP5 and several lenses or would the Think Tank 30i be a better bag for my needs,thanks.

    >The bag can be carried in any of five ways. First, it can be used as a traditional shoulder bag via the removable, adjustable strap. Second, the lid has a top grab handle. Third, there's a rear belt loop. Fourth, the shoulder strap can be removed and threaded through the belt loop to convert the bag into a belt pack. Finally, you can use an optional Think Tank shoulder harness to convert the 30i into a backpack.

    > made from water-resistant poly ballistic material and features nickel plated metal hardware and YKK RC (racket coil) zippers. The interior is closed-cell foam with a nylex liner. For foul weather, a seam-sealed rain cover is included.

    Hello,

    I've used Lowe Pro for many years and the 160 reminds me of Domke bags, my other favorite.

    I have been using the 160 for about 18 months. I am pleased with it.
    My only complaint it that the flap is a bit too long. When I fold it so that the closure is via the magnets, there is too much space between the main compartment and the flap. when I pull the flap further down to close-up that space, the flap barely touches the magnets.

    Otherwise, the best camera bag that I have ever owned.
