digital photography: i need a bag that's rain proof and will hold a dslr and 4 lenses

i'm tired of looking through the bags on the bhphoto site. what i want is a bag that will hold a dslr with lens attach + 4 additional lenses, lens cleaner, cleaning cloth, rocket blower, batteries... etc. i need it to be rain proof and i would like it to give me easy access to my lenses. if you know of such a bag (specially if it's for $40 or less) please tell me of it and how to get it. pics of the inside would be nice too.

You want a bag or a "back" as your title suggests, which i would think means "backpack"

If it's a packpack just look at anything lowepro. I own a microtreker which is ok but i've decided i prefer a sholder slung bag...in which case, i've never been as happy as i am now that i bought my Domke. Everything about them is fantastic in my opinion...

I gots me dis one

My wife made hers.
She used one of those waterproof boxes that kyakers and canoers use, filled it with a block of foam, and made all the necessary cutouts to hold her equipment securely.
She uses that when we go snowshoeing and she wans to bring her photogear along. Though it bulks out her backpack.

Not a bad piece of advise. You pretty much can't find exactly what you want.

In fact...this is how Domke came to be :-)

That thread has the cases I've modified for the bicycle.

For <$40, I would suggest you look at student backpacks. Nothing large enough to fit your needs and be camera specific is going to come in at that price point.

Sorry, I missed the <$40 part....you won't likely find an Ortlieb for that price.
