Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for around town I actually have all three sizes of the Event Messenger. I use the small one with my Sony a6000 with two lenses and the largest one with my Sony A72 plus the 24-70, 70-200 and 16-35 lens. I like to travel with a smaller kit and this allows me to take everything I need for travel to Europe. It will also hold any size of iPad. Access is very easy for changing lenses and any accessories I might need. It doesn't have a zipper to seal the equipment in the bag but this hasn't been a problem for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lightweight bag I bought this messenger bag three months ago. It's an incredible product inside and out! All my gear and laptop fit perfectly. Excellent padding protection with a comfortable and adjustable strap across the chest. I enjoy the extra pockets and features for cables, ipad and water bottle. Easy to get into quickly!

I have a Pro Messenger 180 but find it much to heavy to carry. Will this bag hold my ungripped Canon 7D with 70-200 attached and a Canon 400mm f/5.6 in another partition. I think the 400 might be a tad too high but if I can close the bag I'm OK with it.

Asked by: ChristineR
Hello, You are correct, the size of the 400 would be too large for us to consider that a fit. You should take a look at our new Urban Reporter products that are similar to the Pro Messenger but use a lighter weight material:

Nikon D700 and 28-70 2.8 AFS hood reversed

Hi, I would like to carry a Nikon D700 with 28-70 2.8 AFS hood reversed, or alternatively a 20-35 2.8 (smaller). The camera has one of these lens attached and the other aside, ready to swap. Also, I need to carry a SB-900. Can this bag hold all, or should I look at Urban Reporter line? Thank you.
Asked by: Andy63
That's ok to carry this set - I carry d800 without grip and 70-200 f/2.8, 50 f/1.8 and sb-900 flash and there is more place to hold one another small lens, so yes - this bag will hold all.
