Comments about Lowepro Event Messenger 250 Shoulder Bag - Mica:
I wanted a bag that I could remove the dividers and lay a camera with attached 500mm lens in it.I also wanted a bag that when going away I could get all that I am likely to need in one bag but when there use a smaller bag for day to day use.Two criticisms, could do with a couple of extra pockets but more importantly a better carrying handle as i find it easier when getting in and out of trains, buses etc.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Price Conscious, Quality Conscious
It sits comfortably on the shoulder, doesn't stick out too far on your hip, it's easy to get in to. Mine holds a d7000 ,70-300 lens, 105 macro lens, a 50-75 lens and my flash I could still get another small lens on top of that the pockets on the front hold all your bits & pieces
Lowepro Event Messenger 250 Shoulder Bag
I use it to carry my Fujifilm Finepix HS50 EXR.I have adjusted the interior velcro pads so that my camera fits in on its side to one end, as I find it is easier grip it like this so as to it remove quickly when required. This leaves a space at the other end for my Giottos Rocket Air Blower and Hoya 58mm HD Circular Polariser Filter.I put the spare battery and SD Cards into the front pockets and use the velcro fasteners to close the bag as this keeps the front flap flatter to the bag.

A great shoulder bag
About Me Quality Conscious
Just bought this bag due to restrictive airline requirements for cabin bags. Very dubious about the purchase and much thought before actually buying. To my surprise I am overjoyed with the purchase.For its size it is truly cavernous!. It holds my EOS 7D with medium zoom, a f4 70-200mm, f1.8 50mm, G9, spare batteries, CF & SDHC cards, chargers & cables, 11.6" notebook & mouse, and a bit more. My wife's DSLR and zoom lens will travel in her cabin bag - a bit of a nuisance, but that is the problem created by the airline which I feel sure others have experienced!It is an extremely well made product, very strong material, good stitching and much better padding than expected. The only drawbacks are lack of security and lack of waterproofing. On the other hand, providing you can keep it with you it is brilliant product and it will be used much more frequently by us than just for this trip.At this price it just has to be perfect.

Easily takes four lenses, DSLR, filters, batteries and iPad with space to spare. Took it on holiday and found it easy to use allowing ease of access to camera. In addition the appearance is less obvious that you are carring expensive photographic equipment. It is well constructed with plenty of adjustable padding allowing you to personalise it.
Excellent value, easy in use, comfy bag.
I bought this specifically to shoot a friend's wedding abroad, so it needed to be suitable for airline travel as hand luggage, then provide swift, silent access to my camera and a day's worth of shooting gear.The bag's flippin' perfect. The velcro fastenings are quite secure for travelling, making them noisy to get under for the big flap which hold the main compartment and zippered pockets - but then the clever little fold-back feaure puts the velcro away whilst you're using the back, making the bag all-but silent in use. Ideal!OK, when the velcro's folded back, someone could dip into the bag, but that's up to you to keep it secure. There's no scope for any kind of lock so keep it close.My bag held a DSLR with kit zoom (18-135), 80cm folding reflectors, remote control, lens hood, spare batteries, phone, keys, wallet, flash diffuser... and spare room for another lens if I had one with me. It's surprisingly capacious for an airline-friendly bag.For the money, I'm extremely happy and I think this will serve me for a long while.
Had this since Christmas and can fit a 7d with a 100-400 lens attached. Plenty room for a couple of other lenses. Room for filters, spare battery and other essentials. Well laid out bag, good access and doesn't feel heavy. Great for a day out or trip in a boat if you don't need all your kit. Impressed!

A robust and sturdy yet discreet bag
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.
