    I need a bag to hold my camera body, lenses (right now only one but I plan to get a couple more) a speedlight, extra batteries etc...and a laptop as well.

    Everything I have found is utilitarian and ugly. Don't they make cute bags?

    :(

    I believe there's a company that makes feminine camera bags that look like the handbags girls spend so much money on.

    I have a crumpler. They're similar in type to messenger bags and have some nice colors to choose from. I have a larger one, the 7 million dollar home. It's not water tight, but it's perfect for lugging my gear around in.

  5. Get some foam, and set up the bag of your choice for your camera.

    Bottega Veneta make some nice bags....

    Ok people, there are some basic life rules here that seem to have been forgotten: I feel obligated to remind you of some of them.

    1. Never play cards with a man called "Pops."

    2. Never eat a meal at a place called Moms.

    3. There is no crying in baseball. (Or hockey for those north of the border) (for those south of the equator there is crying allowed in Australian Rules Football. I didn't know this for the longest time.)

    4. Photography gear bags are not meant to be "cute". Babies are cute but useless. Camera bags are useful but ugly. It is the natural order of things. Do not cause a disturbance in the force. :lol: :lmao: :mrgreen: :lmao: :lol: :smileys:

    Ok seriously, I gotta go with Iron on this one as well. Find something you like and fill it with the proper foam or look at the shootsac.

    Thanks for the links and suggestions. If I don't find one that I love then I will just DIY!

    Crumpler bags are good looking(IMHO) but fairly expensive. I'm looking at getting a Kata DR-467 because it comes in something other than black and is fairly inexpensive.
