I don't use the neck strap and certainly don't mind cannibalizing. This is a very high quality wrist strap made with supple leather for $15 shipped. It does have what some may consider a defect...if you look closely you will see the manufacturer's name stamped on it 8)

Now I can carry it attached to my wrist, with the Canon ER-E1 strap.  I went with this instead of cannibalizing the neck strap attachment and adding a different wrist strap because I use the neck strap sometimes, too, and this makes it a lot easier to switch back and forth.

i bought an oem m strap on ebay then cannibalized the strap hardware so i could configure my own straps.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to get just the "end piece" that attaches to the lugs of the M.  Were this available without having to cannibalize a strap to get them, this would open up many possibilities.
5d Mkiii; Eos-M; too many lenses; 430 EXii and a whole lot of stuff

old Hassleblad straps have the same hardware and it locks. this one is made by OP/Tech:



you can find them on ebay and photo retailers that still carry the old stock.

I've been carrying the EOS M with 22mm in the Crumpler The Bundle (L) and there's plenty of room. It would actually probably fit better in an (M) size.

If I want to use something other than the 22mm prime, I find the Lowepro Edit 110 will carry the M plus any two of the native lenses, one of them mounted. Or, with the EF adaptor, combos like the 50mm 1.4 and 22mm M or (my favourite) 40mm pancake and 11-22mm M. Plus spare battery and memory card(s), remote control and mini tripod (Cullmann).  Makes a very neat package.

Yesterday I ordered 2 of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/320951699480 ... recommended by CR member "Cb33"

DON'T BUY IT...too tight. Not happy at all :( :( :(

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that. Those looked good. Now I wish I hadn't noticed those while looking around for cases.

Don't worry about it cb33 ;), it only $10. I can still return it. I just want to mention here so others don't run into this problem again.
I had ordered 2 from Amazon and paid $4.99 each ... I still haven't received them as I'm currently travelling ... but no problemo if they don't fit, I have other things I can use it for.
Almost forgot about this thread, been a bit tied up with 5hit loads of work ... coming back to the topic, as mentioned earlier, I bought 2 of these for $4.99 each from Amazon and the pouch is a snug fit for the EOS-M + 22mm lens ... but that's all that you can fit into that pouch and that's how I wanted it ... this pouch is not for everyone, if you are like me who wants to carry the EOS-M with the 22mm lens, (without being intrusive), to small parties or evening get-to-gethers in restaurants etc then this is a great little pouch ... but you do have to remember that it is not for protection but for hooking it up to your belt and portability. I like this pouch ... it fits my needs perfectly. Here is the link to the Amazon store I bought it from: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008R3O6S4/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Thanks for all the posts. Here's my setup:

I stole one of my wife's old bags (envelope is for scale)
http://www.manhattanportage.com/catalog/product_info.php/dj-bag-sm-p-155


I put in an Apecase QB33 insert
http://apecase.com/products/specialty-storage/cubeze-flexible-storage-cubes/cubeze-qb33-flexible-storage-cube/


It fits the camera and a couple extra lenses


In addition to the main pouch there's a zipper pouch and another pouch in the back, and I can fit a flash in the bag on the side


For the camera itself, I'm using a camdapter camstrap with a peak design microplate. I have an arca compatible clamp on my tripod, so I wanted something that would let me use a handstrap with a plate.
http://www.camdapter.com/handstrap/camstrap.html
https://peakdesignltd.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=60&product_id=56

You can't see it in the picture, but I had to cut off the left side tab (just the loop, not the dovetail) on the microplate to give the battery door enough clearance to swing open all the way. It's an aluminum plate, so you can cut it with a hacksaw very easily.

If anyone is considering buying this pouch, be warned that once you put in the EOS-M + 22mm lens, the pouch no longer looks "pretty" ... it looks like a cloth wrapped around it but it is very small, "out of way" and does not draw attention ... that's how I wanted it ... like I said before, it is not for everyone ... you should have a specific need for it otherwise you're not gonna like the way it looks with the EOS-M + 22mm lens in it.
