    Hi, my name is Steve, and I'm a recovering camera-bag-ahaulic.

    I went through a 12-step program and trimmed my bag collection down to basically one -- the Billingham Hadley Small. I can carry around my E-P5 and quite a few lenses and accessories (VF4, FL-300R, 17mm, 7.5mm, 25mm, 45mm, 40-150mm, and 7-14mm), which is more than enough for most things and yet still relatively svelte to carry.

    I'm tempted by the $40 Urban Reporter 250 primarily because when I travel for work I need to carry a laptop (12" Dell). But on the other hand the UR250 seems HUGE and i'm afraid my E-P5 kit would swim in the camera compartment, or worse yet I would be tempted to also carry my 75-300mm and FL-50R, just because it would fit)

    Not sure if I have a point here. Just thinking out in the open.

    Great deal, though, regardless of whether or not I am able to resist it.

    I'm a sucker for $25 bags, but my closet is full.

    I picked up the 150 bag from BB recently - same price, but at that time, shipping was free. Nice little bag. What I liked most about is that the insert has a cover on it, also can easily be removed as well (the insert, not cover). I plan on using the insert in a hiking backpack when carrying my camera gear.
