What's you bag? Help me find mine...

Hi everyone!
I'm having a hard time finding a proper bag for my little NEX :(
All the camera bags I can find are for DSLRs, so they're way too big for the NEX!

I'm looking for a bag where I can put my NEX-5 with a lens attached (Nokton 35mm 1.4) and two other small primes (one wide angle and a small tele), some accessories (batteries, memory cards, remote, filters...), a small tripod (like a gorillapod), my phone and a few more things (pen, notepad, geocaching stuff...).
I don't want a backpack nor a bag wich looks like a camera/video bag.
I would prefer a shoulder bag like a thin messenger bag but not too big: if it can accomodate a DSLR, it's no good for me :(

At a moment I considered the Domke F803 and the Retrospective 5 but the Domke doesn't have small pockets where I could put my accessories and the Retrospective 5 is too thick for me.

So at the moment the best soution, for me, will be to buy a small padded insert and put it in a regular canvas or leather messenger bag.

So maybe you could share your discoveries and maybe you've already found the ideal bag for the NEX...

I usually only carry my NEX and two lenses with so I have found my Lowepro Exchange to be more than adequate. It may not be the most padded bag, but I added some inserts from some of my older bags to the bottom and sides and I feel my gear is protected. If your kit is bigger than mine then it may not be adequate but it is a light bag and fits against my body quite well so I never worry about it when I'm walking around in a crowd. It's not a perfect bag, and I'm not sure there is such a thing, but for the price I can highly recommend it.
