Have you considered stopping at an outdoor store like REI and finding a great outdoor backpack and then adding your own inserts?

Yes, but the backpacks in those stores are not stylish or lightweight. I only use a backpack for small walks for the day. There has to be a cute little backpack out there somewhere.

check out the kata bags, in particular the micro one very well made and looks pretty good as well. There are other bags in their range that would also suit you

I'm almost thinking of just getting the crumpler haven and finding a leather backpack to put it in. Many of the camera backpacks are either too big or just too utilitarian looking. I'd like a backpack that can pass as a nice looking backpack but still keep and organize my gear.

Yes, exactly. I'm definitely on a mission to find a backpack that is a practical tote for my gear as well as something stylish like my handbags..............​.only a backpack.

What's a stylish backpack look like? Maybe just a Jansport that a college kid would use? They have those at dept stores.

Lowepro Rotation 360 (external link). There are some that say it way designed for short guys and for women, but I'm 6' tall and it's fine for me. You can access it while wearing it, which is its main advantage and something no other pack has. It's built like a tank, bulletproof, the best build on the market and the best padding on the straps and belt in may opinion except for the Tamrac Expedition series.

Look at the videos at that link.

I think tvphotog meant to say Thinktank Rotation 360.

Thanks guys, I did check out the items that everyone suggested but they are either too big and bulky or not stylish looking enough for me. Aww, I hate to whine about this but I want a small backpack that has the look of a womens bag. I appreciate everyones suggestions and I did look them up online. :-)

I am still trying to figure out how a backpack can be "stylish". I was just thinking more feminine, but you are not being too clear on what you are looking for. Like you want to be able to have your bag match that pair of $400 pumps and a business suit?

You might be stuck with more larger purse looking bags, as a backpack is general more utilitarian so it is comfortable.

Domke make a backpack and you can get it in their waxed finish.

National Geographic packs are very different looking.

Sorry. Running out of ideas. The cambags link above will help you do your homework. Adorama and B&H have lots of choices. Good luck!

Ha, that's funny.. but close. OK, by stylish I mean not having it look like I am backpacking cross country, or a highschool kid, or a have a structured form, or plain black.
I currently use a Coach backpack (leather) with the Domke inserts. I was searching for a similar style to the Coach backpack but in a canvas or lighter weight fabric. Whoa, I know I am pretty specific about my things......it's just what I do. :-)
