Reviews
Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks great, feels great but unfortunately low quality Looks and feels great but unfortunately the bag's outside pocket already broke after only 7 days of use. November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits my OMD-5 Perfectly! This is a great bag for small cameras. It fits my Olympus OMD-5 great and is really lightweight. It's kind of got an old look to it's styling which I really like. I leave the snaps on the bottom of the bag open while shooting to get my camera in and out easily. I button up the snaps for when moving around and throwing the bag in the back of the car. January 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Bag for the Look and the Functions I own a Nikon D600 with a 20mm 2.8, 28-70 2.8 and a 80-200 2.8 (that giant black cannon), as well as a SB-400 flash, a spare battery, and some filters. And a blow bulb. And a 7" Google Nexus 7 tablet. I have tried the Urban Reporter 250 and it fit them all with a bit too much space to spare, so I decided to give the smaller 150 model a try. To my surprise, everything still did fit, minus the blow bulb. The main camera compartment seriously had enough space to fit a body with a medium-range lens (that is quite fat, may I add), a heavy tele lens, a small wide-angle lens AND a small external flash unit. All with dividers in between so they do not bump into each other. The only minor complaint is that the camera body is a bit taller than the width of the bag, so the bag doesn't look perfectly flat when closed. Obviously this is not a bag one should get if one uses a pro camera body with a grip. The front pocket holds a pair of thin gloves (for shooting in windy/rainy days), a polarizing filter in its box, and a battery. There is more room to spare, but I chose not to stuff more things in so it wouldn't bulge out when I close the top flap. There is also a back pocket with a zipper on the bottom. Zip it closed and you have a back pocket for documents, maps, etc. Zip it open, and you can turn the camera bag into an extension of your carry-on suitcase. Those who saw my review on the Urban Reporter 250 may be wondering why I'm writing one for the 150 as well, considering the 250 didn't really work out for me. The thing is that, my biggest problem with the 250 was that: 1. It was slow to open and close. 2. It was actually too big. Problem 2 obviously solved itself when I went for a smaller 150. Problem 1 persisted, but then I realized that if I use the lid of the camera compartment, I can keep my gears locked in the bag even when the top flap was not buttoned down. I once bashed the shoulder pad for the lack of padding and width. I still believe the shoulder pad could be a bit wider with more padding, but I realized that the current form is a good balance between look and functionality. I also once bashed the lack of a "quick-draw" option, but then I realized that I got spoiled by the Passport Sling. The leather strap design used for the Urban Reporter series is a good way of securing the top flap, ensuring that nothing in the bag would ever fall out when you have buttoned things up properly. If you are one of the many urban shooters who likes to have some style and comfort, and you don't carry more than two large lenses with your camera body, this is a good bag for you. April 21, 2014

Enough room for a tripod?

I was just looking at the dimensions and was trying to work out what I would be able to carry when travelling - is there enough room for a tripod in one of the lens compartments or is the laptop compartment slightly expandable to maybe hold one?

Answer: 
If you have an extra small or flexible tripod such as a Joby GorillaPod Focus http://joby.com/gorillapod/focus you could bend it to fit in one of the lens spaces.

Anything larger definitely wouldn't fit.

Answer: 
The dimensions of the Urban Reporter 150 are:

Camera Compartment: 34 x 10 x 24.5 cm (13.39 x 3.94 x 9.65 in)

External Dimensions: 41.5 x 17.5 x 28.5 cm (16.34 x 6.89 x 11.22 in)

If your lens is smaller than the height of the camera compartment, you shouldn't have a problem fitting the lens into the bag (9.65in or 24.5cm)
