Camera bag for S1a

I just purchased a pristine Asahi Pentax S1a, and would like to get a "retro" bag for it. Nothing huge, just big enough for the camera, a few rolls of film, and a few Takumars..is there such a thing made these days? Something that looks like it came from the 1960s..

Hello,

The Domke F-4AF Pro System Bag (Black) is a canvas shoulder bag made to carry a large film or digital professional camera outfit. It is constructed of tough, breathable, compressible waterproofed canvas made to hug the shooter's hip closely. It has easy access to the equipment with a great space-to-size ratio. The bag features an open-cell foam liner sewn into the bottom, military-specification hardware, webbing and adjustable closures, eight compartments and pockets with two padded inserts. The non-slip Gripper Strap runs completely around the bag. Included is a removable hand carrying strap.

I'm very much in the same boat right now. When I moved into my apartment, the previous tenant left behind him a dozen or so cheap Kodak land cameras in one of the closets (none of which have any value). One of them though was in a rather neat, messenger-style leather bag. It's not big but it doesn't have to be since I only ever take a film camera with one lens with me. Unfortunately, the bag is tearing open at its seams now so I need a replacement.

I've looked at every single bag that B&H has on offer. All of them are ugly and utilitarian.

I've now started looking specifically for land camera bags on ebay and this looks much more promising. Something like this for example already although I'm more looking for a messenger-style thing than a case.

Anyway, I think what you are looking for can most likely not be found in a store.

Cheers,
Tassilo

Hello,

The Domke F803 Waxwear Camera Satchel (Brown) is a multi-use satchel made to carry various types of imaging equipment. It is made of water-resistant canvas material coated with waxes and oils; the fabric produces a unique distressed and weathered look. The satchel has two interior compartments. There are two large expandable cargo pockets with individual weather flaps and a rear zippered flat pocket. The flap has two flat zippered pockets on the front. The satchel has an adjustable Gripper shoulder strap sewn completely around the satchel and a reinforced handle that is box-stitched to the top of the bag. To return the bag to its original appearance, it includes an ointment to re-apply to the fabric. My black 803 goes almost everywhere with me, but looks like Angus Young danced on it a few hundred times.

The Naneu Pro Military Ops Lima Briefcase (Olive) is a fully padded, water-resistant, 1680 denier ballistic nylon bag made to carry photo gear.

The camera inserts are easily removed, and have a drawstring closure. Removing them converts the bag into a regular briefcase
