Small camera bag for KP + 2 lenses.

Hi, I have a Peak Design 10l sling and I really like it. It can fit my KP and 3-4 lenses. But often I would like to carry only my kp + 2 lenses in a bag that I could easily fit inside my backpack.
So I am asking recommendations for bags that can barely fit aps-c body with 16-85mm attached and 31mm ltd.

Thanks!

I have been looking at that bag and it looks like a good option. Do you think one can fit K5 with two medium sized lenses in it?

Cheers

I use a backpack that carries exactly two lenses and a camera, the think tank perception 15. It has room for a laptop and stuff at the bottom. Or you could look at camera inserts, in my experience bag-in-bag leads to stuff getting stuck on straps and in pockets.

LowPro EX 160

I use a LowPro EX160. It holds my KP with Lens and has room for two additional lenses. It's my go to bag for compact travel.
Approximate dimensions are: L10" x W8" x H5".

Update

The approx. dimensions should be:
L 10"
H 8"
W 6"

I went with the Lowepro Passport Sling, it can handle that set up easily. I also carry my Sirui travel tripod in it. Were it not for the tripod, I would use my Domke F-5XC, the lower access zipper is really handy

My Tamrac Velocity 5x is a little bigger than you need (it currently houses the KP with DA55-300, DA10-17, DA15, DA21 and DA35), but you don't have to fill it

It works as either a small sling bag or a hip belt.

I've been pretty happy with my ThinkTank Mirrorless Mover 30i; Mirrorless Mover® 30i - Premium Photography Shoulder Bag ? Think Tank Photo

K-5 II with a mounted 18-135 and a DA 15 in the factory leather-ish pouch is easy. Or my Ricoh XR-7 with a mounted 28-70 Tokina and a Kiron 28 f2 or M 50 1.4 and a couple rolls of film.

I've got a Domke "gripper" strap on it that replaced the original although that's a long story and I wouldn't consider it a requirement.

Check out the Tenba BYOB inserts. They can be used like a bag on their own (albeit very square) but they excel as a bag insert.

Thank you for good suggestions.
I think I like the Domke F-5xb the best. Could anyone who owns one confirm that they can fit body + 2 medium sized lenses in it?
Weirdly enough no one seems to sell those in Sweden or Finland. So I would have to order from Germany without seeing it first.

Thanks!

This kind of design is best for your need I am thinking. I have one of these made by a different manufacturer. It compact holds my K-01 and Da*16-50 in the main compartment, a 50 or 100mm macro on one side and with extra batteries and accessories on the other side.

This is the one I have

Have you looked at the Peak Design Sling 5L? nIt might work for you.

Otherwise, have a look at Think Tank's modular belt system. Something like the Speec Changer might be just the right size for what you asl (I can get a K-1 with DFA 100 macro WR snugly, so a smaller camera would be easier to fit, and clever divider placement will let you include small lenses. If it doesn't work, theit Skin Changer or Hubba Hubba hiney (yep, that's a thing) would certainly work.

Which lenses are you planning on carrying? I can take a photo of the F-5xb with a K-5II HD DA 70 and D FA 100 Macro WR if you like to give you an idea.

I am planning to carry KP + 16-85 and one of these: 31mm/100mm wr/ 55mm 1.4.

I also added peak design 5l sling on my list.

I use the F-5xb for my SuperProgram, and I really like it. It comes with two dividers which I use to put the camera, lens forward in the middle half and the each quarter of the space at either end contains either a zoom, or two primes sitting on top of each other (these are all A series lenses, so a little smaller than modern AF lenses.) Your camera with the 16-85 sitting lens forward might be a tight fit, but would probably work if you only dedicate space for one more lens instead of two.
