Years ago I used to tote a lot of Olympus OM gear during my travels. I designed a canvas bag to carry this set and had it built by a skilled New England canvas artisan. Here's the bag's story in a PDF file.
What a splendid easy to get into bag. I do like that full, wide opening.
I have a Lowepro bag that I purchased years ago and customized myself with foam from a 1/4 inch thick closed cell flexible foam camping mattress. It's compartments are easily adjustable as my needs and equipment change. I glued all the sectioning pieces together with ordinary rubber cement which can easily be separated and joined in different positions and yet it holds securely. It does not crumble, acts as a shock absorber and does not produce dust or lint. That mattress' sides are slippery and repel all dirt and soil and wear. It has been used for a number of photographic instruments and other things for about 25 years and most of it still remains and waits to be part of an interesting something or other. I have used it to make a number of necessary, useful items that do not require much skill or many tools to make. They all work and last without demanding any maintenance.
