What I wanted was a bag for my 300D that I could use as an "everyday" kinda transport. Criteria was that it had to fit the camera body w/ an attached lens and at least one other lens or flash unit. Plus I didn't want it to look too much like a camera bag because I'm shy and I don't like the attention. Originally I was shopping for either the Domke F-5XB or the Crumpler 5 Million Dollar Home. After searching for a few days and being totally disappointed with the prices $60-$92 (USD), I decide to make my own damned case... and i love it. Its lightweight, has a lot of room, and a bit more protected than some other shoulder bags I've seen.
Overall I saved about $60. Just thought I'd share, maybe it'll inspire someone who wants a cool case but doesn't want to fork over the money.
