Got tired of always hauling around my large camera backpack for short trips or Disney trips, so I went on the hunt for a smaller bag. After looking around at the various sling packs and not finding what I want, I started looking outside the camera market.
Turns out, the Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack is just right. With a small padded insert in the main compartment, it is perfect for my D7200 with the 18-105 lens attached. Has enough storage for my Manfroto mini tripod (tabletop), cleaning supplies, charger, backup USB power supply, pens, notebook and an important feature to me, a water bottle holder. I can even slide my monopod into the pocket where the forard strap attaches to the main bag.
Wish I had thought to go this route sooner.
I answered you.

It's nice. Compact, sturdy and supports a fair amount of weight. Just make sure your lens is centered over one leg.
I bought this one:
