    ego vs super ego vs ID as camera bag with insert

    I am debating between these three.

    I have a variety of requirements depending on where I am traveling.

    But usually I take my canon 7d, canon 24-105, my tamron 17-55, a flash, accessories, chargers etc. plus iPad mini

    I have also been considering buying one more lens for travel but have not decided.

    I have a large bag for when I need to take other equipment and lens so this is more for my standard everyday and travel bag.

    which would be the best solution

    Perhaps some of these links might help:

    The camera I/O insert from TB fits well in both Ego bags. However, it seems that depending on how many lenses you bring, the ego / super ego may get heavy. In that case, I would suggest you get the QAM strap to better distribute the load. From the above posts, the Ego is generally a tight but ok fit and having a Ego, I would agree (note there is a lot more space in the front compartment even with the Camera I/O). This may be fine for you as you already have a larger bag if you want to carry more. I personally like the smaller ego as an EDC. The Super Ego is a good fit leaving some extra room but is a very big bag - perhaps not as good for EDC duties unless you really need the volume.

    I have not seen any comments from people about using the ID. I have seen comments of people using the now retired Imago.

    BTW - an advantage of going with the camera I/O is that it works with the annex clip system in the Egos - keeps your insert from falling out of the bag.

    Hope this helps
