Stylish, quality camera bags?

I love my dslr camera and like to bring it with me everywhere to take pictures. Problem is that I hate transporting it around in my drab black Tamrac nylon bag. I would like a canvas or leather bag that keeps it simple: just a good, safe bag for the camera, not a million zippers and compartments for memory cards, batteries, etc.

I welcome all suggestions for purpose-specific, reasonably priced bags as well as for bags that fit the qualities I'm looking for and that could be retrofitted to hold a dslr camera body and a couple of lenses. Thanks.

You might take a look at: http://www.foggspecialistbags.com/range.htm http://www.billingham.co.uk/acatalog...ra_Bags_1.html If you are truly interested in a simple canvas bag and the level of finish and trimmings takes a back seat to function you might also look at: http://www.tiffen.com/domkecat01.htm All of the above produce solutions directly intended for the photo market and are available through the usual photo retail channels. If you like the first two but wish a less photo-specific option a search will turn up similar English bags, lacking the photo bits, all of which seem to share a prototypical ancestor in an Anglers bag. The Domke is cheaper (and not as nice). They do (in my experience) wear very well. I have several, two of which are approaching 20 years service, and they all have plenty of life left in them. Help!

Thanks for these links! I really liked the Billingham bags, especially the Hadley Small and PressTop 106 models. Reasonably priced, too!

I tried searching but didn't come up with anything. Must have made a typo or something.

+1 for the Billingham Hadley. I've had mine for about 10 years - battered and bruised, and still going strong!
