    You don't have any lens?

    How big/thick are your books?

    How small/big is your jacket?

    TS,

    I think u can just get a neoprene protective case and put inside normal backpack.
    From what you've described, it seems like you need a normal backpack than a camera bag..

    As Diluted mentioned,those neoprene case will do.You might also wanna take a look at Optech neoprene cases too which are available at CP.Or a Lowepro Topload might fit though its a little big...

    My cheapo method: camera (with mounted kit lens) warped around with towel shoved into shoe bag. Then shove shoe bag into back pack. So long as there's nothin heavy resting against your camera you should be fine. Using this until i find a bag or pouch i like.

    It's not recommended to store your cam in the bag.. it promotes growth of fungus even more than just leaving it on the desk.. u should get the dry cabinet first.. i can say that's the best investment I've made till date on photography..
