    This bag is now my fourth camera bag. The bag is extremely well built and sturdy. It does not look like a camera bag but functions better than all the others I have had. The front flap has velcro and clips to hold it which means if you forget to snap it shut there is still plenty of security for your gear. Pockets-a-plenty in every area of the bag. My camera (D90) and up to 3 lenses and my flash (SB600) fit in the bag at one time. The shoulder pad is comfortable and well padded. The grab handle on the top is reinforced and does not pinch your hand when you pick it up. The only negative I have is the corners of the bag can extend past the flap so if you overfill the bag then the contents would be exposed slightly to the elements and wandering eyes. Two thumbs up, great bag!
    On a side note, the platinum color is a little darker than it appears online which is a good thing in my opinion.

    originally i bought this bag for holding my pc and 50d with lens on together, but actually i found it is not big enough for them. it is still very nice bag and i still like it if i just carry my dslr and lenses or just pc along with little lunch box inside.........
    if you want to carry pc and dslr, you better to buy the 17" one instead of this one.
    again....this bag is still good bag, i will give it 3 and half stars.....

      Comments about Messenger: Small Photo/Laptop Bag (Platinum):

      I used this as a camera bag for about a month and I was 50/50 with it. I really liked all the pockets and compartments for my gear. I also liked the top zipper that gave access to my camera.

      However I felt the strap pad was too large and bulky and the material was very stiff all around. I extpected it to be a bit more flexible.

        Straight to the point; great bag for the price!

        I received this wonderful bag 2-3 days after placing the order. Great service by B&H! To my surprise, it was a gift to find the box that the Messenger was delivered in the evening I arrived home from work.

        I was doing some research on various bags to fit my daily experience of life and Tenba caught my attention with their versatile Messenger.

        The chocolate covered 'satchel manufactured from US made Cordura nylon, with ballistic nylon reinforcement' surface is rather pleasing to the eyes. The shoulder strap is rather comfortable! The image used to display the Messenger doesn't do it justice. One must experience for oneself.

        The amount of pockets/space the Messenger contains for storage is suitable for those looking to carry their DSLR with a couple additional lenses along with a laptop, external HD, and any other additional items which include a cell phone, Moleskin, writing utensils, or the like. The equation of items I've listed are how I've utilized the Messenger thus far.

        I cannot find any negative light to shed on this Messenger.

If you want to have your camera in your hand immediately when you are carrying it over your shoulder,
          then this is the bag for you! After a week using it, still discovering more hidden pockets...

                    We will be in Europe for 3 weeks next year and have limited quantity of baggage. I bough this to carry a dslr and lens, lap top, Kindle and small camera stuff. I am taking a D700 and 1 zoom lens and they fit this bag perfectly. My Laptop fits perfect. There is room for paper work and travel papers. Lots of pockets for pens and tablets also.
                    It is very well made and appears to be way durable. It will be an easy carry on for air and bus trips. I would rather my full size roller camera bag but no room for that on this trip. I bought a black bag to be less visible, but the colored ones are pretty neat.

                    I originally ordered the large, but I found it too bulky for my needs. The small is perfect for discreet travel and it holds plenty. I carried a 5D MKIII with 28-70 attached, 70-200, 17-40, flash, and still had room for ipad and kindle. The access to camera on top is excellent. Well designed.

                        I loved this bag when I got it! Particularly well though out, designed, and built, and very versatile. LOTS of pockets for great organization, great protection of gear, low profile appearance.

                        HOWEVER, the main access zipper (really nice idea), gave way after some months. Replaced the zipper, but then that one also gave way, making the bag nearly useless. Great idea for accessing the main compartment w/o having to unbuckle, but the bag's handle pulls the same material the zipper uses, making the zipper pull apart and eventually separates the two halves of the zipper. Bummer! Because I really like the idea, it just needs to be redesigned. Otherwise, it's a really terrific bag!

                        A well made bag. I had a camera body with lens, 2 extra lens, spare battery and charger, filter case that holds 8 filters. Also had an Ipad in the outside compartment. With the interior of the bag full it probably be difficult to put a full size laptop in the outside compartment. It fits nicely along your side and very comfortable with the strap over the opposite shoulder.

                              I use this product for photography school. I really like the color and quality. The strap is pretty comfortable and doesn't hurt my shoulder even after lugging it around school all day. Overall it's a nice bag. I was expecting it to hold more things tho. There are a lot of cool pockets but it seems I can't really use some of them when I have my laptop, camera body one lens and a flash in my bag because the bag is already too full that the little pockets are pointless. Also the little buckles on the outside of the bag should be a little longer and adjustable. I can never close the buckles when I have stuff in my bag.

                              It was to narrow for a large D700 when the computer was in the bag.

                              I love this bag! It holds my Canon 50d with 17-55mm 2.8 lens attached, 10-22mm wide angle, 50mm 1.4 and 60mm macro lenses, plus a 15" laptop. It is a bit of a tight squeeze with the laptop, wish the bag had just about another half inch of width. It is extremely well constructed, very sturdy and easy to carry. Overall I am very pleased with it. The shoulder strap is a bit wide for me, but for my purposes, the top handle works great and is nicely padded. Love that the bag will not tip over and dump the contents even if not buckled. AND it is a beautiful shade of purple...

                              I bought this bag as a small bag for day trips where I don't need all of my camera gear and laptop. All of the compartments provide lots of storage that is easy to access with the flap open or through the top zipper. I have a lot of filters that fit very well in the small pockets on the front. I really like how functional this bag is. The only change I will make is getting a different shoulder strap. This one is a little bulky and rough for me.

                              It doesn't look like a camera bag!!

                                I came to this bag after discussing a few others with BH online. The rep steered me to this one (mind you, a cheaper bag than the 2 I was interested in), and after discussing it with him, I decided to go with it.

                                I'm very happy with it. Big enough to fit tons of accessories (well organized with lots of pockets), a D700, 15" laptop, 3 lenses, basically everything I needed for my last trip. Additionally, the material is fantastic, light and waterproof (which came in handy more than once)

                                    I researched and bought/returned a number of camera bags before finding this one and I absolutely love it. It's the perfect size for a body and about 3 lenses, along with cords, batteries, memory cards, etc. There are tons of little pockets all around the bag, including two small zippered pockets on the front - perfect for keys and phone. It also has a top-loading zipper where you can quickly grab what you need, without having to open the Velcro flap.

                                    I'm a Realtor, and I carry my Canon 60D camera and iPad everywhere I go! I needed a bag that could handle this job and protect my equipment from bumps, rain, etc. The Tenba small messenger bag fits the bill perfectly! I wish it had a little more room for personal stuff... but then it would be heavier. I'm very happy with the bag, and I love the Plum color! I think it's a bit pricy, but if it lasts several years it will be worth it.

                                      I used it on a road with the gadget I will use to a photo session leaving at home the gadget I won't use. It's looks professional and the top zipper is the best for put my camera always handily and safe!!!! And my 15" Mac fix perfectly. Another add if I need the bag to other thing I just take out the insert and is ready for what I want.
