I have 112 slots :)

20 slot Starter Bag
10 slot Ogre Pack
15 Rugged Leather Pack x3
10 slot Darksteel Box
15 slot Invisible Bag
12 slot Invisible Leather Bag

However the invisible bags contains armor, weapons, and minis
The darksteel box contains misc items like consumables and boosters
and then the first 3 slots of the starter pack have my HoM portal stone and 2 salvage kits

So with no junk or anything but what I listed in my inventory, I usually have around 70 slots still open :)

I had been using the 4 slot bags for months until I finally got around to checking the auction house and realized how inexpensive 8 slot bags where. :P

There are several who have done the math already but as others have pointed out, at a certain price it becomes cheaper to buy bag slots (or bank slots or another character as a mule) than to buy bigger bags.

Personally I played to 80 with 8 slot bags and was fine.  I "splurged" and made 10 slotters for myself at that point and I carry around tons of junk and I still never run out.

I have 68 slots.

20 slot starter pack.
4x12 slot packs.

I haven't bought any additional slots for bags.
I may buy 2x20 slot bags with fractal tokens (only 150 tokens for the masterwork one).

it's cheaper to convert to gems and unlock slots for 15 slot bags then to buy more expensive 18 and 20 slot bags. Atleast i'm 100% positive about the 20 slots.

12 slotters + extra bag panel, would have been cheaper to go all 15 slots but seemed like a good idea at the time.  Really all you need more is luxury.

And, of course, buying bag slots, bank slots, or character slots puts money in ANet's pockets because all require gems that somebody had to buy with real cash even if you traded in-game coin for them. How did this become the cheaper option? Because ANet controls the price of the runes needed to make crafted bags, driving the floor cost of those bags upward at a steep rate as they get larger. Nice "gotcha" setup, ANet!

I use 10 slots, thinking about upgrading to 15's but at present, don't see the point. The only time I run out of space is in dungeon runs when I forget to bring along any salvage kits.

As for special types of bags, I find the invisible type the only useful one. This is mainly because I vendor blue/green stuff, and having my EQ/stuff I don't want to sell tucked away, I can just go click crazy in the NPC sell window :)

Never bought any additional bag slots.

That said, across all toons (8):
* starter backpack
* 3x 10-12 slot bags
* 18 slot invisible bag for additional weapons, blueprints, tools, food and all the stuff that is useful to have on you all the time but not really used

Got the Karka bag and 2 20-slot bags from Fractals for one of my toons, slowly will work towards getting the Fractal bags for everyone else.

A full set of 15* slots here, my ALT got all the old ones of my main so basically a mix of 12/10
(did not buy the extra slot nor the storage expansion, gems are overpriced atm)

I mainly use 15 slots bags too. The price difference between 15 ones and 18 ones isn't worth it.
Though, there was a time when trading gold/gems was (a lot more) interesting to buy and put a 15 slots bag in, but this time is unfortunately over...

Main:crafted 20 slot bag and 12 slot bags. Alt has 10 slit bags. I aim to have 18 slots to be honest, 20 is too expensive for 2 more slots.

I love PvE too much to put time in PvP. WvW is where my pseudo PvP time goes.

I have the karka 20 slot the rest 12. My mules have 12 slot as long as you manage your inventory well from your main, to bank to alts then you can hold alot of junk, usualy more then you need.

Mostly 15 and 12 Slots, though I have the odd 8 or 10 Slot in some places still. My main also has a singular 18 slot (a Safe Box for my 3 Alternate Armorsets). Then of course there's starter 20 Slot on everyone.

Keep my bottom two bag slots Invisible Bags for storing alternate weapons and armorsets, aswell as the odd harvesting tool or consumable. I like Oiled Bags and Crafting Bags, though I plan to ditch my Equipment Bags when I can afford too seems they don't really seem to help with organisation much and just get confusing when I swap from a 1H+OH weapon for a 2H weapon and the game chucks one of my personal weapons that I want to keep in there along with the junk. For this reason an Exotic Bag from FotM would probably be handy simply to catch my own equipment when I swap out, but they are pretty expensive, so.

Anyway, in general 15 Slot bags I feel are the way to go though; Seem to be the best balance between capacity and pricing. 20 Slots quite simply aren't worth it at all when you can get five 18 Slots for the same price. Honestly I could see them halfing the cost of 20 Slot bags in a future update, especially since they decided to unfairly throw free ones out to a small select few of the playerbase that managed to make it to the end of the event weekend. Wasn't really fair on the rest of us who couldn't make it / get the chest for whatever reason.

15 slots on all my characters. Like you said, I can sell it back to TP for minimum loss. But I never needed to, loving the 15 slots, 18 slots is just too expensive and 20 slots I'd never buy for that price.

20-slot Starter bag, 20-slot Karka box, 12-slot leather bag x 4.

Much more space than I need.

Standard BP + karka box + Rare Fractal box + all the rest are 15s.
It doesn't normally get filled up, even though I do carry around a lot of stuff (all warrior weapons, a wide selection of food, a bunch of different tools, odd items like dwarven keys ... )

I was holding out for 20s but decided that realistically they will be way off in the future.

So I bought 3 size 15s for my main and passed the 10s I bought way back down to alts.

So across all 6 characters I am using 8s 10s and 15s plus the one 20 karka box I got.
