I actually have one large bag and one small bag. The large bag is to take all my gear when I go to a long-term vacation somewhere, whereas my small bag is to actually take my gear out of my house/hotel room and shoot. Depending on my needs for the day:
: Canon 50D, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8
: Canon 50D, 28mm f/1.8, Yongnuo YN-468
: Canon 50D, 85mm f/1.8, Yongnuo YN-468, Off-shoe flash receiver + transmitter
You get the idea
Oh, and it's not in my sig, but my small bag is a Lowepro Exchange I found for $20 online. It doesn't have the nice padding of my Snoop, but it's incredibly light and great to walk around with.

Eh, haven't actually gone out of the country yet, but it works well for my city photography. Worst case scenario where I can't actually frame the shot the way I want to, I go for the next widest lens and crop in PP. It's definitely not ideal, but hey, I do have 15MP, and one of my favorite images was shot that way.Edited by r31ncarnat3d - 3/4/11 at 11:08am
