    I have a Think Tank "Urban Disguise" bag that's more of a "man bag" than camera bag in appearance (the maker's intent, no doubt). I have the 30 size which is pretty much suited for one 35mm, a spare lens, a handful of film and maybe a flash; the lens can be fairly long. They make it in several different sizes. The bags seem well made, but the zipper opening across the center of the top, as opposed to a flap, makes it tedious to get stuff in and out.

    Like Rick A, I also have a couple of non camera bags, indeed one from Cabela's. But after 70 years and many tries, I still haven't found the "right" bag! (Maybe it's because I keep doing different projects with different equipment - nah, that couldn't possibly be it! )

    These days, a non-camera bag might be perceived to contain a fancy phone or tablet computer, so maybe those diaper bag ideas are best!

    I use a small soft-sided cooler bag into which I've fitted some semi-rigid foam to divide it into a few compartments and add some extra padding around the walls. Looks utterly innocuous and works fine!

    Domke make some very good smaller canvas bags that are quite soft and don't scream "photographer". Have you thought about just wearing a jacket with large pockets and carrying the camera in a pocket? I do exactly that with an Olympus OM.

    Thanks! I'm not necessarily in the market for a new bag; I was just curious to know what you guys use. I like to carry a camera on me quite often so I stick a 35mm/120 folder and a meter in whatever bag I'm using. This OK for these cameras but I'd want a better bag when I want to carry a little more. The lowepro and domke bags look interesting.

    My favorite is the Domke F-802 messenger bag (AKA Reporter's Satchel). I can cram a ton of stuff into this bag and it fits under an airplane seat. I usually use a couple Domke inserts to hold lenses and 35mm camera. It looks totally unlike a camera bag (although someone may think there is a laptop computer in there).

    Thanks! That sounds like a better idea for me. I never thought about padded inserts...
