Bags are really personal - I've been through more camera bags than any other bit of kit!
From my experience of using Lowepro, Tamrac, Kata, Crumpler, and ThinkTank I would suggest you're best off with Crumpler or Kata. The Lowepro stuff never seems particularly good to me although I've never really been able to put my finger on really why.
Tamrac stuff is excellent value for money but can look a but cheap.
Crumpler stuff is pricey but very well made.
Kata kit is excellent. Also expensive compared to Lowepro but much much better quality.
ThinkTank stuff is brilliant but VERY expensive!
In the end, I have 2 bags. I've got a Kata backpack and a Crumpler shoulder bag. Both have recieved pretty rough treatment over the years and both have withstood everything I've thrown at them (which includes being run over by a car for the Crumpler).
