Yep, that's along the lines I was thinking. I just need to see if an insert if possible.
The Crumpler 4 Million dollar bag seems nice tho too.
A good quality bag designed for cameras will almost always be better protection. But it does advertise "camera". A thief is likely to steal first; then look closely at what's been stolen. I got the impression that you might be in locations where that might be an issue.
I've used a short length of heavy mailing tube for lenses and small cardboard boxes inside a bag with a flat bottom. Sounds tacky, but it works as long as it's just 2-3 items in the bag.
