    I'm after something small I can keep money/passport/water in. (already carrying a 70l pack, but I want to avoid bumbags if possible!) Maybe along the lines of this:

    So was wondering if anyone could this type of thing would be easy to find in BKK, and where best to start looking?

    Head for one of the street markets. They will have loads of bags just like that - we bought one that was (purportedly) Diesel and has last for many other trips as new. Whether it's fake or not, it was good quality - don't pay more than $15. Haggle as they'll start high. They're all over the place so you'll be able to find something. It's a good bag to have as you can swing it in front of you in a slightly nefarious area...

    I guess it was a perfect shoulder bag to keep all your travel essentials safe and handy. Is there any color???

    Ka Pao Tung brand shoulder bags are great. Uou can find them at the night market at the Memorial Bridge (near the Flower Market).

    It had any number of pockets, zips and compartments, perhaps more than is strictly necessary, but is secure. We've just used it again touring round Europe. It's still going strong and, in olive green, it fits any outfit... ;-)
