    favorite bag that doesn't scream photographer

    What's your favorite bag when traveling light? By light I do not necessarily mean a small 35mm camera, but just when you aren't carrying a ton of lenses, tripod, etc.

    I have a small Manhattan Portage bag but I do not like it too much. I like the minimalist look but it feels too stiff and there aren't any compartments. I haven't shopped around, but most camera bags look too much like camera bags so I prefer general-use messengers.

    If you like messenger bags, Crumpler makes photo inserts for theirs. I like the Urban Disguise bags. I have two now. They're very well made and designed and they blend in with the kinds of bags one sees on the subway all the time.

    Good Evening,

    I have a small Craftsman (Sears) tool bag which I sometimes use when carrying just a few items. These are available elsewhere (Lowes, Home Depot, etc.) in various sizes and configurations. Most don't have shoulder straps, but they generally have numerous pockets and compartments.

    Some people use a small cooler, the size that holds a six pack, They are cheap, rigid and provide protection from heat. They also provide good protection for your equiment. Besides who is going to steal someone's lunch.

    I will second the Crumpler bags. They're durable, well-padded, and wear very well. And they don't look like camera bags, more like a college student messenger bag.

    I have a diaper bag converted to photographic use that I use sometimes.

    I'm not sure what it screams

    I purchased a small carry bag from Cabela's for $10, has a couple of dividers and outer zip compartments, and a shoulder strap. It works well for 35mm or my Mamiya stuff such as extra lenses and a flash, plus filters, film, etc. Unfortunatly, the camera hanging around my neck screams camera.
