Bottomless camera bag for spies like us

I have heard about a bottomless camera bag but this is literally a bag with no bottom. The Cloak Bag has a zip open bottom to allow stealth shooting for the security conscious traveler. The Cloak Bag does address an age-old problem for the traveling photographer: having your gear at the ready while simultaneously protecting it from view of would-be thieves. I like the idea but being too covert while traveling around foreign countries with a camera makes me a little nervous.

My current solution is a ThinkTank holster bag which necessitates unzipping and unholstering to shoot. You miss a lot of stuff on the street by the time you’ve done this. Simply tipping up the bag and shooting from the hip makes the Cloak sound like a good idea. It doesn’t look like the current model would fit a full-size SLR body (or have room for hacksaw blades and bail money).  I’ll try one out when they make a full-size pro model.
