I use a RedSnapper Duo, has been around australia with me for a year and then London for a year as well. Maybe not as nice looking as the Billingham but hard wearing and still stylish enough (IMO) :) also only 50GBP so a fair bit cheaper :)
Will certainly fit a camera, my 15" mac Pro and some...
This is a dangerous game. . . the 23mm looks epic and I'm considering getting one now. . even though my 35mm hasn't arrived yet!!
