While in Target for other items, came across this insulated, waterproof, soft sided (Lunch Box style) bag from Igloo.
Though small (?) in size, it accomodated my E-330/14-54 with battery grip, grip & shoulder strap, and still has seperated top section as well as slip pockets on front & rear. (front one zippered) Outside Cordura nylon has plastic coated backing and inside (silver material) is waterproof as well.
It was available in this color and a Pink/Grey combination. I struggled for quite a while as to which I should choose. 8-))))
Price= $12.99

Speaking as somebody who has gone through many different bags, you certainly can't beat the price, and it certainly doesn't look like a photo bag.

I would worry long term about the silver material inside the bag, as I've had similar coolers that started disintegrating in a year's time (often times the silver stuff starts flaking off). Of course, for $13, when it starts self destructing, just throw it out, and get a new one.

I can't tell what kind of shoulder strap is on the bag, but often times the straps that come on those type of coolers aren't ment for all day use.

I bought an Igloo bag to use as a camera bag a few years back. It is just a large rectangular bag, insulated (and padded), white inside, no silver. Great seal on zipper, too. I suppose it was meant to carry ice and drinks or something.

It has been a great bag and no one would ever suspect my gear was inside. It can hold a camera and a lens or two plus some cords and such. I use some folded towels as padding between items. Has a pouch with a flap on the front useful for filters, caps, and other thin items.

Forget what I paid, but it wasn't much. Much better than my lowepro bag.

Another great bag I use is a diaper bag. Waterproof, padded, and no one would ever stick their nose in it! ;)
