The poll doesn't list "ammo bag"

A Coleman ice chest. It's too hot to keep cameras in the car where I'm at these days.

Heres my latest NON camera bag.



Its a sold by Jack Pyke as cartridge bag for clay shooters it takes 100 shotgun cartridges !. It has a tough canvas like outer , vinyl inside and is nice and light. I've used a cut down Domke insert inside to take the camera , the velco grips the cloth edging tape nicely and theres still room for a lens or two. They retail for around £17 so cheap too.

Depends on social context... the real camera bags are stored in the closet.

Although it only works sometimes - when I'm on a call - a fire turnout coat with plenty of pockets carries enough lenses, film, and meter for most emergency situations. But, as I say, it only works then. Wearing it at other times just gets funny looks.

I use Saddleback leather classic briefcase on most days, and it starts to show that too (after few years of active use). When I travel light, I have a finnish gas mask bag, or old bread bag (also from finnish military surplus). Or some of the more "special" bags I have around But most days it's saddleback leather, since it's durable, it does make a stand but it doesn't jump on peoples eyes and I've traveled with it with out anyone taking a second look at it.

My chief beef with camera bags is they are too bulky. I usually stow my M9 in whatever messenger bag I happen to be using. At the moment (weekend), a Tumi Beale mini-messenger in green. It has enough room for an iPad 2 and in the front pocket a M9 with 50mm Summilux ASPH. The bright orange lining makes it easy to find stuff, unlike black interiors.

My current bag is a $12 green canvas "ammo bag" off of eBay with $8 worth of neoprene inside to pad it a little bit. Think Domke, without costing more than an FSU body (shipped) or a kit DSLR lens... Holds an SLR and lens or two (when I find a rangefinder, it will still fit), my Kindle and my journal, along with other goodies. And I look just like a hipster with a green "army" bag, so nobody will bother me.

My other bag is (well, was when I was once upon a time a newspaper reporter) a Domke F2. It sits in the closet now. Used to take that everywhere, but I haven't used it in two years or so. C'est la vie.

It's amazing we get so much mileage out of talking about camera bags.

I'm guilty of buying too many new bags. After trial and error, I've decided I like bags that have enough padding to hold the hardware in place, and to provide a bit of a cushion. It's gotta be a shoulder bag, one that I can open with one hand. (For me, messenger bags with big velcro flaps are the easiest to open, if the buckles are already undone. Bags with a zippered lid need to be braced against something before your can pull the zipper open.)

My bags are used almost solely for travel. Around home, it's almost always one camera, one lens.

Question: How easy or difficult would it be to make a custom fitted bag insert? I.e., custom fitted to the hardware you want to carry in that bag? Nothing fancy, just some foam rubber.

You know, no matter what kind of bag we carry, no matter how hard we might work to hide what's inside, isn't the game up as soon as we reach inside and pull out a camera?

It looks like a Mulholland Angler's bag that was a sweet garage sale score. I thought it was a purse for the couple years it sat in my closet. Then you men of fine taste alerted me to it's excellence as a camera satchel.

I put a Domke insert in it like you'd use in the 803 and it has more room than I really need for camera gear. That's good, because it leaves room for other things.

It looks like this, fits a M Body and a 5D side by side, with room for small accessories.

I have way too many bags.

I enjoy the Artists & Artisans 7100, good enough for two bodies with two lens, spare batteries, Sandisk, film, 2 additional lens, two ND filters, cleaning kit and air bulb for travel.

Carry less for a walk about town, so I guess if it had to fit one of the descriptions it would be a 'a man purse', just not to sure what a 'European shoulder bag' looks like.
