    Most outfitters/camping supplies carry a foam sheet that can be placed in a sleeping bag. It's about 3/8ths of an inch thick and can be cut to fit. It also is not expensive. I have used it in small duffel bags to protect cameras effectively.

    Yep, closed cell foam sleeping mats are perfect to craft your own pads.
    They come in several thicknesses. Don't take up mositure. And are (relatively) cheap.

    I have cut up a few of those too to create custom inserts for various bags and packs. Use pads to put between things stacked in too-deep compartments in regular photo bags too.
    Well worth considering if you want to add some padding to a unpadded bag.

    Especially cheap if you buy them at a second hand store, $2-$5ea. around here.
    More at a military surplus store $10-$20.
    I owned a Billingham once & it was a nice bag but not $200 nice. I know! It's a hobby, spoil yourself.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    They have always been expensive even in the U.K when I bought mine about twenty years ago, but you only buy them once in a lifetime. I understand Billingham's biggest markets for their bags are the USA, and Japan where they change hands for big money .
