daycase/pouch for MX + 43mm advice needed

Dear fellow film fotographers,

I very much enjoy my MX when coupled with the wonderful Pentax 43mm lens.

For my digital SLR, I use the "Crumpler Bowl" pouch which I carry in my usual backpack, which is closed by a zipper, and I can throw the largish K5ii inside and forget it when I want to; also there's a side compartment for a second small lens, which is great because like this I can carry the 43mm and 20mm lenses and the K5ii in one single pouch.
For the MX the pouch is quite a bit too large; I'd love to find a similar zipper-closed "bowl" only large enough to pad the MX and the mounted 43mm lens;

could you recommend any such specific pouch? I've been googling quite a while and find no such pouches smaller than the "Crumpler Bowl", and I don't like complicated pouches with straps and belt-adapters and outside-pockets... as I just want a safe "damping" within my backpack, and a zipper to avoid the camera falling out of the bag.

Have a nice evening

I have a small padded bag that I think was originally for a Mini-DV style camcorder. It has one main storage area with a couple small webbed external pockets which are useful for filters/film. Not the most stylish thing.

I know this doesn't give you a specific product to look at, but maybe there are some small camcorder type bags that will have the same type of setup.

Edit: A brief search at B&H shows multiple simple padded bags under the camcorder category. Hope that helps.

If you didn't mind drawstring instead of zipper, there are lots of neoprene pouches that would probably do the trick.
