    and repairing lens could easily cost a few 10% of the original cost of the lens... think you need to think twice...

    but if you die die want it can google DIY camera bag... i know there are lot of results out there... but if you read properly, most are merely for stealth purpose and suggested for short trips only...

    also, the main purpose of one "expensive" camera bag is to protect the gear from water, not just bumps and drops... no DIY bag could protect your gear from water (at least to this day)...

    my lowepro bag has gone through thunderstorms, while my thinktank bag has done somersaults with my gear inside, but i can be rest assured that my equipment will be in tip top condition when i take them out of my bag.

    if it were a DIY padded bag, i won't want to see the condition of my glasses when i unzip the bag.
    eat. drink. shoot

    Hi TS,

    How about buying some Daiso sponge bags and try some DIY?
