    I have yet to find a diaper bag that's exactly what I need. Maybe I should try the diaper bags for cameras and vice versa.

    I do have a cooler bag that's perfect for my Hasselblad - it's exactly the right size and shape.
    I also have a small purple teddy bear stuffie dangling from my LowePro bag. No one's stolen it so far - maybe the bear makes people think it's not a camera bag (I usually put the bear over the logo when I leave it in the car).

    The camera inside... It screams "Help me, somebody"

    Make sure you don't get the diaper bags mixed up then Bethe, it could result in a very smelly accident

    The attendant stopped me, and announced that I was allowed only two carry on items. I calmly announced, loud enough for everyone around to hear, that this was my purse.

    Both women burst out laughing, and the attendant, completely dumbfounded, said nothing as I continued on.

    Today I'd probably go to jail for that.

    I still use a green canvas military bag that dates back to WWII or before. Picked it up after the local Hercules Army Surplus burnt down when I was kid. Got lots of other great stuff like helmets and bayonets too. A fire sale you might say. But thats another story It will easily hold a 35mm or medium format with a spare lens. Great bag when less is more. But usually I use a black Domke that is like an comfy old pair of jeans now. The Domke bag is bomb proof. It's my favourite all around bag. Also a great unassuming bag is the Urban Disguise from Think Tank. Ballistic Nylon Fabric / YKK RC-Fuse Zippers and a pocket for a lap top. Function and style from ThinkTank. I fly with this bag, but for everyday use it's the Domke.

    I have assorted Domkes and Billinghams that do little more than hold gear at home. I use a Filson Field Bag with a Tenba Wedding Insert for a lot of my wanderings. I also use a Filson small Carry-on bag, with Zing pouches to pad the gear. Sometimes I grab a Dockers airline carry on bag, which is a bit wider than the messenger types; I also put the gear in Zing pouches.

    Seahawks won Superbowl XLVIII.
    Next year's Superbowl is XLIX. Easier to pronounce than XLVIII. Sounds like XLAX.
    I hope that doesn't mean we won't be able to stop the run...

    This current model is the closest to the bag I have. Mine doesn't have a "star" - it is just black on the side.

    And yes, I bought it used, after researching the fact that it is completely washable.

    I think I paid $15.00 at our local thrift shop.

    With a strap on Lowepro lens case and just a little bit of padding it holds an RB67, an extra lens or two, a hand meter, an extra back, some film and a few extra small accessories.

    Or less, if I don't want it that heavy

    I've been known to put a medium-format outfit in a canvas tool bag, the kind with pockets all around the outside. For disinformation, I carry gym socks, a toothbrush and paste, deodorant and a sweatband in the pockets. To keep it up-to-date, I suppose I should add a bottle of "vitamin water" and one of those concentrated energy bars (half-eaten).

    If anything, this setup screams in agony from muscle cramps....

    Here's a cheap place to buy bags. You'd have to modify them, but they definitely don't look like a camera bag.

    I've been using a few army surplus bags for years and always enjoyed the idea that if anyone wants to steal something, that ragged old looking canvas probably wont be their first choice.
