    I've been looking for a case or bag to use to carry my X100s (when It gets replaced or repaired by Fuji) and I'm finding it difficult to get one that's just right. I like the official case, leather and traditional, but I would prefer something that doesn't say 'camera' when I carry just the camera when I don't want to carry my full camera bag and kit (I have the X-Pro1 and prime lenses). I've seen one so far but I think it's a little large ( Case Logic's SLMC-200 ) but I'd like to hear your suggestions for a good case/bag please.

    I keep my camera in the Fuji Leather case for protection even if I'm using a larger bag to carry other odds and ends.
    Any old bag will do then.

    1. Just the X100s in a bum-bag (very rare).

    2. Add accessories - spare batteries, cards, CPL) & daily essentials - phone, keys, wallet, etc - then the Domke F5xb (more often).

    3. Add another compact camera or two to the mix, usually film - and the daily essentials - then the Bare Bones Bag (most often).

    4. Add more again - including laptop/notebook - then the TTRS7 (ThinkTank Retrospective 7 (only once so far).

    I use a Kaza leather half case (and the top if I'm traveling). Sometimes I'll use a cheap messenger style bag if I need to carry another camera or other stuff.

    I have the MM10 and it has served me very well so far.

    I put my X100 in a National Geographic A1212. Fits perfectly and has a slim front pocket that holds a spare battery, card and cleaning cloth. Nothing more. I either use the shoulder strap or - more often - detach it and loop it on my belt.

    If I'm carrying more, then the Hadley Digital, with room for my wallet, sunglasses, phone, keys as well.

    I use a Lowepro Passport sling. It works well as a shoulderbag, is somewhat water resistant, has an insert box which can be removed but is better with... its currently carrying my Nikon 1 stuff very comfortably, as well as wallet, sunnies, keys etc, and for the X100 + XZ-1 days, theres a compartment for each, as well as a filter or two. I normally have the X100 wrapped in a neoprene case in my regular bag, but in the sling, I can have filter adapter, filter and hood all attached and ready to go.

    That looks a perfect fit inside Romi....and ample pockets for the necessary x100s extras. Just a shame about the form factor - it looks like a camera - or actually more a 'video' - bag. I prefer a little stealth with my gear...happy enough for them to look like hand or make-up bags instead. :blush:

    Mark, you mean you're looking for a large clutch (haha)? but yeah, i know what you mean -- i generally hate lowepro's typical look. i just remembered when i used to live in NYC, i'd always see Manhattan Portage bags around. i'm thinking about picking this one up.. waxed canvas jogger. i have a thick dust rag i can wrap my x100s in when i pack it in there.

    this looks nice, too, but i have the RRS grip on mine. so, i doubt it'll fit in this one.. camera case.

    i actually have that one in the balistic black nylon. i even bought it from B&H when i used to live in NYC (haha). i think it's still too big. i'm almost sure i can fit my x100s and my yongnuo speedlite in there. i'll take some pics, tomorrow.

    Romi, mate, you shouldn't show these to a bag-aholic. These are so sweeeeet. Reminds me of my Bare Bones Bag.

    ThinkTank are pushing me to the Mirrorless Mover 10 as they are saying the 5 is too small.

    Really? It can house an OMD or NEX with decent prime, but not an x100s? Hmmm...

    uh oh, i think i found two good ones which showcases the x100...

    manfrotto-nano-vi-pouch-fuji-x100-15-1504.
    ^
    manfrotto nano. you can wear it by the actual camera's strap.

    5897540001_d2ea57dfcb.

    i'm leaning more towards this one, myself.

    that second one looks pretty nice. I gotta admit I just don't see the point though of carrying a camera bag that ONLY holds a camera. But that's why there's 31 flavors.

    Yes, that second one is the NatGeo A1212, which I use a lot with my X100. Spare battery and card in the front slot. Either the shoulder strap, or - my usual way - the belt loop.

    The belt loop is velcro and you don't need to open the belt to put it on or off, very practical.
