XT-1 very small camera bag?

I'd like to get a camera bag for the XT-1, kit lens, and 56MM.  I'm looking for the smallest bag possible that will carry the camera and 2 lenses.

Any recommendations?

I advise buying the accessory shoulder pad for each.

There are a lot of them. The Domke F8 is pretty small. It'll hold your kit and if you ever add another prime lens, you can probably get it in there too, but it would get tight. Worth a look anyway...

Not sure what your budget is, but for a 'very small' bag, you have a couple high-end options through Fogg.

Re: XT-1 very small camera bag?

my new favorite small camera bag. Exceptionally functional, nice materials, water resistant. Can also double as a hip/waist pouch depending on waist size.  I use it for D800 with small primes (28/50/85mm 1/8G). Fits perfectly.  In a pinch the outer pockets can hold a flash

Awesome. Take some pics when it comes in. I'm thinking about ordering it in the next couple of weeks.

I shoot a lot in urban areas, and I would rather not be carrying an obvious camera bag.  I use an appropriately sized messenger bag that can hold the camera, a couple of lenses, side arms and ammo (just kidding).

Mine was a cheap leather one from J Crew, but there are hundreds available in all sizes and price points.  Much less obvious IMO.

Re: XT-1 very small camera bag?

The Lowepro Edit 110 is the smallest bag I could find that will take that combination, and I tried every bag in the store. It has a few pockets for a pair of spare batteries and some 62mm filters and that is about it. My X-T1, 23mm and 56mm live in mine.

Cheers

Lowepro Nova Sport 7L AW is home to mine X-T1 + 18-55mm + 35mm + 18mm (iPad mini is a bit stretch but doable).

Re: XT-1 very small camera bag?

The OP asked for suggestions for the smallest bag possible for his X-T1 and two lens combo. The Ona Bowery is one and a half times the size of the diminutive Lowepro Edit 110, it's also double the weight.

Edit 110 external dimensions 7.48" x 4.72" x 5.71", 0.68 lbs

Ona Bowery external dimensions 10.5" x 7" x 4", 1.4 lbs

Re: XT-1 very small camera bag?

I like my Tamrac Jazz 45. I lay the XT-1 with kit lens vertically on its side and have the 60mm (stacked with the 27mm, each in a padded bag) next to the camera separated by a padded divider.

I have to give a shoutout to the bag I got a couple of weeks ago: the Herringbone Atlantis medium. Large enough for the X-T1 with a lens mounted, and two more slots for lenses of your choice. Two front pockets will hold extra batteries etc. Rear pocket (more of a slit) is big enough to hold an iPad mini or a regular iPad upright. Good craftsmanship. Very handsome little bag for men or women.

What about this bag ? It doesn't scream CAMERA and has room for other things.
