I am on a quest to find the perfect camera bag. I guess some of you know how I feel

Along the way, I have collected a number of bags that for various reasons don't quite suit me and so I am putting them up for sale so that they can go to a good home.

All are used (except the Slingshot) but in very good condition, I would say MINT- with nothing more than very minor signs of use. I can send more details and photos if people are interested.

1) Billingham 306 khaki/tan canvas and leather. This one comes with the presstop fast access opening. See here on the Billingham website http://www.billingham.co.uk/acatalog/306.html This is close to the ideal bag for me and I am likely to get the bigger model when my wife lets me. I bought this last year for trip to France, but not used it much since. Asking £115 to include postage in UK.

2) Billingham Hadley Pro khaki/tan canvas and leather. This one comes with removable padded insert so can be used as a day bag. See here on Billingam website http://www.billingham.co.uk/acatalog/Hadley_Pro.html I carry my D300 with 16-85VR attached plus 70-300VR and room in the pockets for other accessories. Asking £65 to include postage in UK.

3) M-Rock Zion backpack in black/blue. This one includes the drinking water bladder attachment. I bought this on a trip to Colorado when my old bag got damaged. See here http://www.m-rock.com/zion-47-47.htm Asking £50 to include postage in UK.

4) M-Rock Arches sling bag in black/blue which is about the size of the Slingshot 300. I bought this along with the Zion above. See http://www.m-rock.com/arches-50-50.htm Asking £35 to include postage in UK.

5) Lowepro Slingshot 200. This bag is completely MINT and unused. I was given it by Jessops when I bought my D300 last year. See http://products.lowepro.com/product/SlingShot-200-AW,2035,4.htm Asking £35 to include postage in UK.

In case you were wondering, my usual bag that I am keeping is a Lowepro Nova which is cheap and cheerful, and does the job
