As titled, looking for a Pentax K Bag, as seen here, if anyone has one or knows where one can be had. Barring that, suggestions for a small messenger style bag that'll hold a K-5 with kit lens and room for 2-3 more.

Preferably priced under 25

Thanks!

This seems to be the current bag, and avaiable new within your budget:

I got this bag as part of the package when I first bought the Pentax K-x... It looks good and works well but it started to fall apart within 3 weeks of daily use... I took it back and the shop let me have a Crumpler bag for half-price - They'd apparently had a few returned... The Crumpler is now being used by a friend of mine...

Thanks for that John.. I had seen that one before, but now, on closer inspection, it's a much deeper bag than the K bag - more like gadget bag dimensions as opposed to that of a messenger style bag. The camera rests grip-to-clasp instead of grip-to-strap, if you see what I mean.

I also liked the somewhat ambiguous 'K' over the more obvious 'Pentax' label. Maybe it's Mary Kay Cosmetics and not camera gear

Thanks for the heads-up David, I know other people haven't had any trouble with their bags, so maybe there was a bad batch of them. I really like Crumpler stuff but I hadn't even bothered to look at them as in the past they've always been out of my price range. I'll see what I find on ebay.
