    there are many bags that will fit ur purpose since it is so general. One good one is Lowepro Photorunner ($55 IIRC).

    A friend of mine has a small bag that may be what you're looking for. He uses a D70s and a 18-200mm, which is similar to what you have. It's a blue colour small bag, by Lowepro I believe, and should fit your setup nicely. Have a look at the Lowepro website, should be able to find it.

    I mean any basic bag t fit your body and kit lens would be fine. Crumpler 4 million would be snug, if you have a hot shoe flash too

    hey you can use a lowepro passport sling.. i'm using one for my daily needs, go out with gf etc.. doesn't take up alot of space, perfect for being a travel bag..

    its pretty cheap, nice sling bag, that can pass off as a normal bag anytime..

    go check it out at cathay photo... or lowepro website http://products.lowepro.com/product/...ing,2190,4.htm

    I have been using bagman for about 4 years. The quality is decent.

    Perhaps you search for camera pad..

    I have similar requirement and I want to find cushioned cover or camera pad for my D500 so I can put into my normal bag / backpack. I saw look-alike at Cathay Marina and it's definitely less than $100 but i thought the padding is a little too thin. Any recommendations?

    try Lowepro - SlingShot 102 AW, it fit my d90 + 70-200mm +lx3 + 50mm 1.8. i got it from b&s for only $50 (1 month old).

    I would buy a camera insert and put it into a normal bag. Fits all your requirements and its 30bucks?

    Sounds like you need a holster style sling bag, something like the Lowepro Topload Zoom. I saw it selling at Challenger and Song Brothers. Around $20, if I remember correctly.

    Are u using the body with grip ?

    If u don't use the grip, can get a 4mdh. Trendy colors.. Fit with what u wear and most importantly no one knows it's a camera bag.

    Lowepro gives is good but not as trendy as crumpler.. Which I feel it gives a serious look..

    Called tk foto and checked the price for 4mdh, it's $90.. Can fit your budget..

    $100 for 5mdh which I feel it's more worth sometimes can store an additional umbrella.. Or something..
    Think fast, aim for the best !

    I have a think tank change up but when I do street shooting or when traveling and doesn't anyone to know I am carrying a camera, I use a Chinatown bought shoulder bag. I lined it with neoprene to give a little protection and add additional stitches at the shoulder strap/bag joint to strengthen it. The outside is a little grimy (perfect for street camo) but I vacuum the inside often to keep it clean. It can hold a 7d with 17-55 mm with some room to spare for small accessories.
