        Bought this bag to use as a carry on on flights. Is great but needs to be a little wider to accept a 50D with a battery extension and a tablet behind it.

          Nice bag, but not very efficient

          About Me Photo Enthusiast

          Pros

          • Handsome understated app
          • IPad is well protected
          • Seems well-made

          Cons

          • Big for what it holds
          • Hard To Access Equipment

          Best Uses

          • Transporting Gear

          Comments about Tamrac 5782 Evolution Messenger 2 Bag:

          I was looking for a thin, compact "working" bag that would be just big enough to hold my DSLR or Micro Four Thirds camera, a couple of lenses, and my iPad.

          This bag holds all those items, and it's nice-looking and seems well-made -- but it isn't very compact and somehow not very space-efficient. My old Tenba P201 bag holds almost as much, but is a lot smaller; my even older Leica bag isn't much larger, but holds a lot more stuff.

          The difference is that the Tamrac is much more heavily padded than those two other bags, and probably offers more protection for my gear when traveling. But as a bag to use WHILE shooting, it's not quite what I had hoped. The padding makes it a struggle to pull an f/2.8 zoom lens out of the bag (nearly impossible with the lens hood attached) and the exterior dimensions are big enough that it's hard to maneuver in tight spaces.

          I'll keep it and probably use it for transporting gear, but I'm still in search of a small shooting bag that has room for an iPad.
