I think the Lowepro Slingshot 300 would suffice.
I one the Lowepro Slingshot 200 for my equipment (in my signature), but it would be too small for you.
Check out the 300, however... it's large...
I love my Lowepro!!!!

I'm with you on that statement. I bought mine via eBay/Hong Kong. It was way less than buying it in a store, locally...

I love the lowe pro backpacks. I use their packs almost exclusively. The mini trekker AW is one I still use (and love) and it's big enough for all of that. I get a D3 and a D300 plus 3-4 lenses (including a 70-200 VR) and a flash plus a rain jacket in there. No issues and you can add external lens pouches if needed to the outside as the Lowe Pro system is modular.
