I was thinking exactly the same thing. I have an F6 "a little bit
smaller", which looks a lot like a small gym bag, but it's got that boxy
appearance, which makes it look a bit like a camera bag again. Then I
got a 803 which is perfect for two M cameras with 35/50/90 and film. Not
as nice to work out as a Billingnham L2, but it draws a lot less
attention. I wanted the 802, because I figured I could cram my M kit and
a Rollei TLR in there, but it's the same size as a laptop bag, except
it's canvas, not nylon which may make it look less like a laptop bag.
Are you still with me? Maybe the answer is a canvas bag from the
Army&Navy store with some Domke inserts...a diaper bag without a baby
may get you arrested.

I'll give you $20 bucks for the bag and $10 for the old cameras.
