    I like the Billingham travel range: http://www.billingham.co.uk/products.asp?catid=420

    Barbour make a nice bag too: http://www.barbour.com/index.cfm?fus...D=16&RangeID=4

    As does Annabel Chaffer: http://www.annabelchaffer.com/leathe...s-travel-bags/

    (the advantage of these bags is that they are expensive, as such any thief will probably steal the bag but throw the 'crappy old film camera' back at you!)
    Andy,
    I'd look like a sloan if I bought one of these.

    John, when did you ever see a sloan carrying their own bags? Besides if you got a Billingham you'd be well equipped for your next trip across the Persian Gulf in a dow.

    John,
    I love my Billingham. It's a model 225. Should hold your gear without a problem.
    There are usually quite a few available on that famous auction site.
    I got it about 5 years ago just before I found out I needed cataract surgeries. At the time, my vision was almost non-existent, so I figured if I was going blind, I might as well have a nice camera bag to carry around.
    Never regretted spending the money (I actually got it fairly cheap - just over $100)

    I use Gordy's camera straps - the wrist straps - and love them.
    Although, I just ordered a Y-strap. I think there will be times I'd like to use that as well. The concept looks great.

    Regards,
    Tom

    Buy any bag you like...Jack Spade maybe if you are into mens understated style. Then just buy the camera bag inserts you need and velcro them together to make it a camera bag. I do this with all of my bags...one of which I made myself. I can use them in my moutainsmith hip pack, messanger bag, or samsonite backpack...I think Lowepro makes the inserts.

    Here is a link to my camera bag that I put together to haul my Bronica sqa around in.

    http://cliechty.home.comcast.net/~cliechty/cambag/

    I bought the bag from the Gap on clearance for $20.00 and the insert is a Tenba insert for their wedding car case.

    In the bag I carry 1 Bronica sqa with wlf & 50mm lens attached, 80mm lens, 3 backs, Sekonic 558 meter, blower, cleaning cloth, up to 10-12 rolls of film, notepad, pens, mp3 player, magazines, etc.

    The Billinghams are simply superb bags JD, like a pair of jeans, the longer you have one the more you like it and the better it fits. They dont look as good new to be honest.

    Gee I still use a bunch of those 70's multi-coloured straps. They're so old the young kids like them LOL. Check out the army surplus stores. They have some funky bags.

    For heavy traveling, I have a real beast of a Tamrac Expedition. (vintage unknown) Tucked into the front pocket is my real treasure, a $5 single-strap backpack. The beauty of this pack is that it can easily fit a couple of bodies and a lens or two, and you can swing it quite comfortably around to the front to access your gear or to carry it more securely in crowded situations.

    Something like this; (but mine was cheaper )

    Bags

    Hi John,
    My (currently declining in value) .02 is to find a small boxy bag that has enough room for film, filters and one spare lens and keep the camera in you hand. Cameras in bags can't snap photos. However is you want a purpose built camera bag for the kit you list a Domke F3 is close to the right size. Domkes, as claimed above for Billingham, wear like iron and age well. Their canvas is softer and more "broken in" out of the gate and they look a bit less flash. That said, the Hadley is a handsome bag. Attached are a few photos of above bag and my daily contents.
    Celac.

    Also, one should note that the rubber stuff in the gripper straps will die over time and leave stains on clothing. This is not a reason to avoid the product, just be careful to retire and replace the item before it leaves black bits on your jacket.
