Decades ago i quit using "camera cases", due to major threat of attack and theft.
i use backpacks with foam inserts, or pouches with some protection.
One can also pick up groceries and place inside!
No! I place my Leica on top. I carry very little gear at any time.
M3 body, 50mm or 35mm. No flash, seldom spare roll of film.
Spare socks, sweater and notebook, pen.
Present backpacks were street finds..
