|The Lowepro Exchange Messenger Bag|
I at first thought of getting an economical camera bag insert for said Manhattan Portage DJ bag, but I would then have to purchase the slightly larger Medium sized version to accommodate the insert, approx cost for both- $100. Then I came upon the Lowepro Exchange Messenger Bag. Not quite as sturdy as the DJ Bag w/add. padded insert, but... it's $30 all told! Built well enough for casual everyday shooting, has three adjustable padded compartments, a couple of side pockets, can fit a camera, 2 add. short lenses, flash, small accessories (stop- no more!), is inconspicuous and hugs the body. Look forward to using when I visit the homeland in NYC this June. When it wears down, you're good to go for another $30- or get the MP alternative described above (my eventual route when my current wears out).
