Kit bag suggestions?

Looking to get a really good kit bag that can hold a number of things. Multipurpose is what it needs to cater for.

The kit i'd like to carry is:

DSLR Cam
2 x Lenses
Accessories incl batteries/charger etc
2 x DEDO lights (small)

I have 2 x KATA bags at present, but they're really not great even with dividers. Lots of 'play' in them, sloshing around. I'm going to be doing a bit of commuting soon, so need something verstatile and strong.

Are there any rolling cases I should be looking at? With good padded inserts/foam?

Thanks in advance:)

I can recommend Thinktank hands down. All their stuff is well designed and thought out by real shooters. I use the Streetwalker Pro, holster, belt and harness. Another bag I can recomend from experience is the slingshot for when you need fast access.

I can second the slingshot. Although the 2 Dedo's may be a problem. No laptop.
Saw it for $50 recently.

I can fit my 60D, 3-4 lenses, loupe, micro LED, batteries. Nice and tight.
Even rig a shotgun mic with shock mount on occasion.

Might I suggest a case rather than a bag.

Have a look at Storm Cases.
