Comments about Lowepro Event Messenger 250 Shoulder Bag - Mica:
I brought this bag to help me carry my gear for a small weekend trip to Italy. It was fantastic for carrying through airport security and small enough to carry on the plane as hand luggage. The best bit which attracted myself to it was the notebook pocket inside, which I used for my iPad. Using the typical Lowepro system the pockets inside are changeable depending on the size of your gear and the front pocket does allow for some additional extras such as filters, cleaning cloths and fluid, etc. We did an immense amount of walking through Rome, approx 15 miles and it was only at the very end that the bag was getting uncomfortable to wear. It even managed to protect my gear from a massive downpour lasting on and off for about an hour, although the bag is not waterproof. I managed to carry a canon 550d body, standard kit lens, telephoto zoom, 50mm prime, canon speedlite and transmitter with 5 cokin filters and circular polarisers with ease. The bag was very easy to use without having to put it down everytime I wanted to get something out of it. Good functionality and allowed myself to blend in without making it obvious that I was carrying camera equipment. Definitely a good buy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I use this product for birdwatching, I can take my camera and other bits, but also my small laptop, which is great.
Ideal for carrying 70-200 F2.8 lens
Just what I needed to carry large lens plus 1-2 camera bodies and accessories.The top handle is not in a good position but this is not a problemQuick access to camera.Comfortable over shoulder
I just start photography and I think bag it is excellent!!! Lot room for accesoriess.
Fantastic messenger bag
By Scotty boy
I bought this because I don't want to wear a back Pack all of the time. It carry's my short lenses, camera spare two lenses charger, flash and filters with ease. I use the side zipped compartment for batteries, spirit level and off camera flash cord.However, it also handles my camera with 100-400mm attached ready for use with ease. It is lightweight and only a little heavy if I choose to cram it with extra equipment. It is invaluable for travel picture editing as I can do this on the train with the ultra book packed in its back panel. It's inconspicuous look is great around the cities.

Nice bag, well made good value for money..
Good quality bag
By Daniel Tuck
This is a good, well made bag with a reasonable amount of space. It is slightly smaller than I had expected, and I can just comfortably fit my Canon 5D Mk II with a 24 - 70mm attached, plus speedlight and 70 - 200mm in the bag (plus memory cards etc.) but there's little room for anything else. The main compartment is not sealed, so it's possible that water could get through on a particularly wet day, though I've yet to test that theory. Certainly for the price, it's a good bag and well worth the money
Great product, brilliant, does what its supposed to! Thank you.

Great bag for when you don't need to carry all your kit and not an obvous camera bag to the casual observer.
Exactly as described
About Me Professional
The bag does what it says it`ll do, and very well. Construction`s of good quality & the colour doesn`t stand out as much as the black bags or rucksacks. Velcro divides are sturdy & the interior looks `quality`. We`ll see sometime if certain airlines let it on, without charging excessively. I was interested in this type of bag for the following reasons:1 It`s not immediately recognisable as carrying expensive gear.2 It takes a `professional` size SLR & a couple of other lenses,flash,filters,memory cards, and a few smaller items.3 Last year I almost had some gear stolen from a rucksack type bag, and didn`t realise the thieves were at the contents, until someone shouted at them. I resolved to have the gear easily accessed & in sight. It doesn`t deal with tripod carrying, but you can`t have it all.
