Okay that was a loaded headline - but because it was a headline, it had to be relatively short. I meant to say, In MY opinion, the world’s best camera bag for mirrorless shooters who have a minimal amount of gear and want to be able to work fast without using a neck strap is…
The Camslinger Streetomatic+ from Cosyspeed…
This bag has a one-of-a-kind design that I think is brilliant. It’s best suited to people who are shooting mirrorless or compact camera systems and who don’t need to carry lots of gear. It can hold a smaller DSLR and a small lens and a few minor accessories. And it’s just PERFECT - if you need/want what it does. It is a camera bag that you can wear on your hip or over your shoulder. It offers blindingly quick access via a very cool magnetic system that allows very rapid opening and closing of the bag. That system is called FIDLOCK and was developed in Germany. It provides reliable (and safe) one-handed access to the camera inside the bag. Slide the buckle to the right and open the flap. Snap the thing back in place a magnet holds it tight. (There is also a safety loop strap you can use to double lock the bag for safer transit.)
Years ago I don’t think many of us thought about our camera bag’s appearance. Most camera bags were black and that was that. The look of a camera bag has become more important as people have begun to be more fashion conscious while out and about with their cameras. Additionally, camera bags that do not look like camera bags offer more security because thieves are less likely to spot the bag as a giveaway that you are carrying a valuable camera. It comes in brown or gray and looks very stylish.
This isn’t a large bag so it’s designed for people who have one body and a small lens plus flash or two small lenses. It would also be ideal to hold a second camera body (or larger lens - maybe even a flash or a recorder for those of you who do video and need pro audio.) It’s really quite versatile.
The whole idea of the Streetomatic+ is that it is very fast. (Hence the company name Cosyspeed.) You can get to your gear quickly and secure it quickly.
I am using the bag to house my Olympus Pen-F and Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 25mm f/1.2 PRO Lens along with memory card, iPhone, spare battery, battery charger and USB cable.

There are times when this style of bag works better than a backpack. In warm weather, you won’t have to deal with something causing sweat under the straps that might go across your shoulders or chest.
It looks good, is light weight but strong (it’s very well made,) it’s extremely well-designed and very functional. Like all camera bags these days, it’s expensive at $129 but I think it’s worth it.
