When I'm working I hang a bag on my right shoulder. So the DPP really works well for me. Situation is getting worse, not better. Many coats now have a teflon coating to keep the water out.
Here, I wear a coat 9 months of the year. Winter coat (waterproof) when needed; otherwise waterproof in case the weather changes.
I hate camera straps that I need to hold with 1 hand, and I hate bag straps the same.
Problem really is, it's hard to teach this old dog new tricks.
(although I have started using a BR strap, sling style.)

Now, I haven't seen a sling style bag strap...yet! ;)

I always wear my bags across the opposite shoulder, it just means I have to keep the strap a little longer than normal but it's no big deal. Keeps me from losing the bag, I wouldn't want to drop any of my bags, lol.

I don't typically use a padded rest as I'm a big guy and already have enough padding as it is, lol.

is it just me or did the insert go up by a few bucks? i could have swore it was $22-23 without shipping before.

Not sure, but it's free shipping if you order it directly from BBP.

Just picked up the bag and insert combo! The insert fits in just about perfectly and the bag is pretty great quality too. I can post some pictures if anyone wants them.

I love this thread. I have grown really tired or paying over $100 for nothing more than a padded nylon bag and will plan on making a bag like this soon. Going to hit up my local army surplus store after work to see what I can find.

Will do...I'm in class right now but I can manage some shots and a short video if possible. It's a great combo, honestly. You'll enjoy it if you get it.

I love stealth :)

I made this messenger bag and lined the interior with loop velcro for inserts. This was the first one so there are a few minor things I'll change on the next one.

Awesome bag! What are the inside dimensions? Any reason you sewed the strap on as opposed to sewing on D rings so you could use any strap? Thanks

That would be great. I will be buying it, just need to make sure that my paycheck situation is straight before I buy anything else. (In the middle of changing jobs)

A video would be really cool to see how everything fits and how snug the insert fits.

If you're really into DIY then you can buy a sleeping pad for less than $10 at Wal-Mart, the Army-Navy store, or any sporting goods store. They are generally blue, made of closed cell foam, and are about 5/8" thick. You can cut them in any shape and glue them together or you can cover them with nylon and make them to look like the purchased pads. The foam is soft and will gouge eventually but really will last a long time. I have never used it for camera padding but have lined shelves in trucks to transport and protect test equipment.

It's really snug, but not so much that it's hard to get in...

It's perfect, really..

And, it looks like we're up.

I recorded it mid-meal if that's any justification for any muttering..

Thanks! It's roughly 15"x11"x5" but of course the center can bow out to be much deeper since it's a soft bag.

I normally only add D-rings when I/the customer may want to use the bag without any sort of shoulder strap. With a messenger bag, the whole point is to have a shoulder strap so you wouldn't want to take it off. Now if you want to be able to switch straps, that isn't really necessary. Most straps are basically the same (2" webbing), where they differ is the pad (if you want a pad, that is). I can make any kind of pad you want, which would just attach to the existing webbing strap. However, since all of my stuff is custom, I do whatever the customer wants :)

Here's a range bag where I utilized D-rings for the straps:
