    I'm with Polyglot. Crumpler is small and it doesn't look like a camera bag. I have one and it's well built. http://www.crumpler.com/us/Camera-Ba...anguageCode=EN

    Partial to the Domke F2 for 35mm and smallish MF like a Bronica SQ-B. Swapping out the bottom stiffening panel for some closed cell foam allows the bag to bend a bit and look less like a camera bag. Tons of room. The ballistic nylon is tougher than cotton canvas. If you get one, the optional postman's pad for the strap makes long carries happier.

    BTW, have never seen Domke "knock-offs" online that were very convincing.

    If you don't want a bag that looks like a camera bag, there are boatloads of small military surplus bags here: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/b...px?c=163&s=146

    Most of these type items should be available at a local surplus store too.

    I've used a WWII gas mask bag for years with a TLR. I don't mind the older green/grey ones; but I would feel a bit silly with a camo one.

    They're OK provided you travel light; otherwise, there's gear banging around inside. I tried that once and gave up after slapping together laughable padded dividers that didn't work so hot. If I use a non-camera bag now, I put 35mm bodies+lenses in Zing neoprene cases.

    Why not use a diaper bag--lots of padding and a hazmat rating, too!

    When I do lightweight shoots I take my lowerpro messenger style camera bag. It has removable padding but once the flap is on it looks just like a regular messenger bag. Won't fit much in it though. I can fit a Pentax 6X7 medium format (which isn't exactly small) with a 110mm lens in it along with a few necessities like a notebook, little credit card holder and my phone. That's about it.

    Or, I can fit two smaller cameras, like my Pentax 35mm and a Konica Rangefinder along with the necessities.

    These lowerpro bags are really cheap too. Look at Amazon!

    The one I use is this: http://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Exchan...4230106&sr=8-2

    The bag I use the most is a canvas messenger from ASOS, I dont think they sell it anymore. Comes with a nice soft removable shoulder strap and tote style carry handles. I shoved in a thick layer of adheasive backed egg crate foam and it works very well. It got really grungy at one point, but it cleaned up well. I think it cost me $12, the foam I had lying around. Not water proof though, I will probably wax it one day when I get around to it.

    Just bought another bag from Marc New York http://www.amazon.com/Marc-York-Rivi.../dp/B0043YP12Q

    hopefully it looks nice, got it for $25 =]
