Plan on doing some street photography and a little traveling carrying minimal gear (2 Lenses, Flash, Batteries, and Small Accessories). In some of the locations it would be good to have a bag that doesn't look so obviously like a camera bag when not shooting. I'm thinking something along the lines of this:

Doesn't have to be a messenger bag. Anyone have suggestions? Another idea I have is to mode some non camera bags I currently have using velcro and home made padding as dividers. Anyone do anything like that?

how does it fit your 60 gripped? do you have a pic? i'm deciding on the think tank retro 5 or the 6 or 7 million crumpler.

With a gripped body you will want a 10 but the 10 is a bit bulkier. Still a good bag, I have a 10 also.

I can't speak to the Think Tank, But the Crumpler 7MDH works great with my gripped 60D. I originally ordered the Crumpler 6MDH and found that it was too tight of a fit. The 7MDH rocks, I am really happy with this bag.

Instead of making custom padding, look into the BBP paddy or Tenba insert.

I went this route and have really liked it so far. Go towards the end of the thread and you will see a few other people's bag

I'm in the hunt for the Thinktank UD 60. It works...expensive, but works!

I have a little Crumpler Pretty Boy 7500 which I use when shooting light and which doesn't look like a camera bag. Enough room for a 50D with grip attached and two lenses. It also has a pocket for extra cards, batteries, mobile phone and stuff like that.

I have the Retro 20 and it fits my gripped 60D with a 70-200mm f/4L attached no problem. Also has room for the 28-70mm f/2.8L, Sigma 8-16mm, and 50mm as well. Has plenty of additional pockets for various other accesories such as a cleaning kit, memory card case, lens caps, etc...I don't have any pics with me, but there should be plenty of others on the web. Check out youtube as there's a few review videos that ended up helping me make my decision. Great bag and I love it.
