Timbuk2-snoop-camera-bag-logoWe've told you about inconspicuous looking camera bags that double as beer coolers and spy-worthy photo satchels that let you take pictures without even removing your camera from the bag, now here's a slick new bag from Timbuk2 that looks like something a bike messenger might tote around.

Called, appropriately, The Snoop Camera Messenger Bag, the bag can fit a DSLR and a couple lenses inside padded dividers in its main pouch. Close The Snoop up though, and it looks like a regular messenger bag you fling over your shoulder with a single strap before mounting your fixed-gear bike.

The padded camera insert is actually removable so if you're not planning on bringing your photo gear on your little joy ride all over town, you'll have some extra room for stuffed animals.

Timbuk2-snoop-bag-open-2If you are heading out on assignment, the camera insert velcros inside the Snoop Camera Messenger bag so it stays puts. There are also double-reinforced adjustable straps for securing a tripod on the bottom of the messenger bag to help keep it balanced while peddling.

Meanwhile, an internal "slash pocket" against the rear wall of the bag give you a padded spot for your laptop or iPad when you're out on a shoot.

Get the Timbuk2 Snoop Camera Messenger Bag here for around $130.
