Hi all.

I am in search of an everyday bag, a bag that can contain an M or a Q, with integrity, but at the same time include glasses, wallet, keys, papire and maybe a 13inch computer, usually I use a Think Tank My 2 Brain, but I don’t like to put a camera down into it. Which means I'm bringing two bags, it is not very convenient.

Anyone have a good suggestion?

Regards Henrik

Do not ask a man what camera he uses, if he uses a Leica will he tell himself, if not, there is no need to make him feel embarrassed!

Have you considered just buying a camera bag insert and then sticking that into your favourite bag or rucksack?  

 

I use a single camera and lens setup and I find this is the best way to carry it.  The insert goes into an ordinary rucksack, so I have plenty of space for my other stuff, and because I have a cover on my insert, my camera is fully protected.  

 

Amazon has a good selection.

As a camera thief by passion, I prefer people who use to have a carrying bag from far seeable containg valuable goods!

So choose a real precious one.

For me only the cheapest most worn bags, I never had problems with snatched away ones...

I'm not a backpack type, unless I am out hiking. ;)

Search Amazon for "camera bag insert" and find a bunch of cheap inserts that will do a good job. Then stick that in your favorite anything bag.

I use an ONA Prince Street, that fits an M9 with a lens mounted (plus a couple lenses if needed), everyday accessories, and a 13" MacBook Pro. It is doing the job, and I use it a lot. I could do with a slightly slimmer bag. It might be worth looking at...

Nice, on the website it states only 11” but if you say so, it look like a nice bag

Indeed. It is a bit tight, but mine (an older generation 13" Retina) fits. I guess the new generation 13" Retina (with touch bar or not) fits better as it is narrower, and that an older generation with CD drive would not fit (thicker and a bit wider if I remember correctly). If you have the chance, I advise to try in the store with your laptop.

Beside my Billingham L2 and Hadley Pro I have a Fjällräven Tote Bag ( can also be used as a back pack) with no name insert from Enjoyyourcamera. It is a very unobtrusiv and flexible solution! I use the tote bag also for shopping and travelling parallel to one of the two Billinghams.

I do it exactly like this. I have a very old, very dirty Freitag bag with a beautiful red Artisan and Artist red inlay. It fits an M9, Ricoh GR, wallet or sunglasses or extra lens and a couple of batteries an a lens cloth. No thief might think that I carry valuable cameras in it.

 

By the way this is my first message in the forum! Greetings from Cologne!

I like inserts too. I have used Tenba's BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) inserts of different sizes over the years. They're great in my opinion. I use the smallest one in my Timbuk2 work messenger bag at the moment.

For bags, it is hard to go wrong with a Billingham Hadley Pro. If the computer is slim (like the latest MB Pro) it will fit. A black or darker color is quite discrete and they age beautifully.
