Camera bags that don't look like camera bags

If you’re like me you don’t want to announce to the general public that your camera is always with you. So how do you carry it around safely so it doesn’t get bumped and knocked?

I’ve purchased a ladies leather backpack which looks like a regular handbag women would carry. But inside I’ve added the padded inserts taken from other camera bags so that I can protect my camera and spare lens in transit and every day use.

I also have one of those photographer’s jackets with lots of pockets for going on photowalks. I don’t have to sling a bag on my shoulder or back, which helps with balance and I have everything I need with me on my person, even a drink bottle.

What bags do you use and why?  And do you use a photographer’s jacket?
