Default Super Zoom Camera Bag

How do you carry your super zoom camera? I'm thinking of a small bag belt attached or the like. Want to keep it small and convenient and something I won't hesitate to carry.

Thanks

Neck strap. The camera won't do you much good in the bag with a lens cap on it.

Neck strap I've got. I'm planning a three week trip next summer and was thinking of a case or bag to put the camera while traveling, eating lunch, etc. Something I won't get up from the table and leave behind.

Or, something that doesn't scream, "I have expensive camera gear in here. STEAL ME!" I use a six-pack cooler bag I picked up at WallyWorld. Has a couple of small compartments on the outside and I use bubble wrap to pad the gear. While there are folks that won't think twice about stealing a camera bag, they tend to leave someones lunch alone.

I've heard of a couple of ways to approach traveling with a superzoom. One is to use a diaper bag and then some sort of insert/bubble wrap/foam etc. Who wants to grab a diaper bag? The other is to get a messenger bag like the Domke (think that's the brand) - it's not like Tamron or Lowepro, both of which make excellent bags but they do say "photographer" very loudly. I have a smallish Tamron bag that works well for a superzoom and some accessories, but think for touring the cross-shoulder messenger bag would be more secure.
