          I bought this, along with a few other inserts, to use with my Timbuk2 Commuter messenger bag. This would have worked fine, but I did not need the handles, so opted instead for the Tenba model. Both are well-made and have dividers which you can use to divide up the space.

            Comments about Tamrac #116 Evolution Messenger 4 Camera Bag Shuttle (Medium, Gray):

            I purchased this to use in a medium sized canvas bag. It works well and I love the handles which make it easy to switch to other bags. The height is a bit short to handle my Canon T2i/550D with attached 100mm lens. The Bag Shuttle has dividers which are attached with heavy duty Velcro and work well. I ordered a second shuttle in the next larger size to fit in a larger leather tote and it works even better as this one is a bit taller. I measured carefully before purchasing to make sure the shuttle would fit my bag openings and would close properly.

            The eternal quest for the ideal camera bag... He's an economical solution for day-to-day camera lugging, when a single SLR camera and lens are needed. The well made insert fits into any medium-sized bag and no one is the wiser. Since leaving the more ambitious camera bag at home, I find I take the camera every day and have no more excuses to make about not having it with me...

            Two improvements to suggest: first, a flap for the top for added protection. Second, small pockets for extra batteries and memory cards.

              Purchased a nice messenger bag from winners that I wanted to use as a not so obvious camera bag and this shuttle allowed for that. It has good padding and enough room to fit a sony A99 with a 24-70mm attached and a 70-200mm along with a flash on either side. The handles also make for easy removal from the bag just incase I want to leave my gear at home. Now I can make any messenger bag into a camera bag love it.

                Put this inside a Timbuktu bag, would never know that I'm carrying around my camera. Easily fits camera, couple of lens and flash, with padded protection around all of them.

                  I have a waterproof messenger bag that i wanted an insert for to turn the bag in to a camera bag. This worked great. I am able to fit my 40D camera body attached to a lens, external flash and my 70-200 lens all in the insert without any problems. This was a great buy.

                    I bought this to put in my crossover bag so I could convert it to a camera bag. It works great and protects my gear. Glad that had this as I wasn't sure how I was going to achive this. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to do the same.

                      I needed something that would fit in my Timbuk2 bag or a backpack depending on what I was doing. This insert works very well, holding my D700 and a couple of lenses. I wouldn't mind if the padding was slightly denser, but I'm glad I bought it.

                        I needed an insert for my messenger bag and this item was perfect!
                        Used for vid-cam and other gear. I'll get more of these for other photo gear, so I can just sway it out fast.
