The mica Lowepro Event Messenger 100 Shoulder Bag is a lightweight yet durable messenger-style bag that holds a DSLR or mirrorless system camera and accessories. It can hold a DSLR with an attached 18-55 lens and 1-2 extra lenses, or a flash with one lens, accessories.

    I chose this bag to hold my Sony Alpha NEX-C3, an interchangeable lens camera (approx. 4 inches by 3 inches by 1.5 inches), and its accompanying lenses - a zoom lens (approx. 3-4 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter), a macro lens (approx. 3-4 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter), and a pancake lens (approx. 1.5 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter). The main compartment is large enough for me also to slip my point-and-shoot camera, my wallet, and cell phone without any crowdedness. Without the above extra accessories, I can store another lens (approx. 3-4 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter), though the lens must be attached to the camera or stored very closely to it without any padding. The bag comes with 4 fully adjustable walls so that you can make your own compartments as needed. Additionally, there is a separate compartment in the front that holds an extra battery, a lenspen, an memory card, a small flash, and a hood. There are very thin pockets on both sides of the bag and on the back for holding very thin pamphlets, such as an owner's manual, or pens. The strap is easily adjusted for cinching the bag closer to your body and contains rubber underneath for a better grip.

    I felt most pleasantly surprised by the bag's roominess, particularly with the adjustable walls in the main compartment. The bag is very sturdy and not easily tilted upside down, even when the front flap is open; at first, it seems precarious to carry the bag by the top handle while the flap is open because the bag naturally leans forward, but your equipment is secure. The bag feels weighty enough for me to drop my camera with a lens into the bag, close the flap, and continue rigorous activity before taking the next picture.

    I am most disappointed by the thin side and back flaps. I could barely fit a pen in the side flaps, and the back flap is very tight when holding a 1/8-inch wide owner's manual and an index card. Also, the bag is available in only one color, which isn't bad, until you see the other Lowepro colors available for other styles.

    This bag is stylish, and has great adjustable compartments. It's not too bulky which is great when you just want to carry the basics. However, it is a little tight with my Cannon EOS 60D.

      Comments about Lowepro Event Messenger 100 For DSLR (Mica):

      Very nice looking, well-made of good material. I really like the option of having buckle plus velcro closure, or buckle only for silent operation (velcro is very noisy). I tried several ways of using the padded dividers, but finally gave up. I removed them entirely and just wrap my Fuji lenses in the cloth wrap they come with. In the main compartment I have the XT-1 with 23MM lens attached, 14MM lens, and 56MM lens. I tried to add the 35MM lens, but just won't fit unless you cram, and even then, you add more weight. In the zippered compartment I have extra battery & SD card, filters, lens cleaning cloth, and RR-90 shutter release cord.

      Overall, I like this very much. Had it been just a tad larger I would have rated it 5 stars, but you can't design a bag that is going to be perfect for everyone.

      I'm glad I found this bag to carry my Canon T1i. The camera base and 2 lenses fit in the bag. I like that it is small and not so bulky. However, it is a tight fit to have the camera base and 2 lenses in there. My 2 lenses are 18-55mm and 55-250mm.

      Perfect for small system camera

      By vladdrac

      from CA, USA

      Comments about Lowepro Event Messenger 100 For DSLR (Mica):

      Usual excellent Lowepro materials and overall quality. Main compartment has two large dividers secured by velcro. Fits a Limix GF6 with either the kit zoom or pancake 20mm attached to the body with room to spare. Can imagine a GX7 or OM-D fittin no prob. The other lens fits into one of the corner compartments with a hood. Next to that is a small tripod and battery charger. Front pocket holds essentials.

      I am using this bag w/ the panasonice G5. It will fit sideways w/ the stock lens 14-42...snuggly, and i am able to carry two additional lenses....and old film 50mm/ adapter to fit the G5 and an olympus 45-150. The fit is tight and I rather wish I had gotten the next size up.....but was on a budget. But all in all, it is a very stylish bag. Love the clean look and material

          Great camera bag, just barely big enough for a Sony A7 with extra lens, compact tripod and a few accessories. The fold-out side walls that pop up when the lid is open is a great way to limit the chance that stuff will fall out of the bag when the lid is closed. Looks great, and doesn't look too much like a camera bag which is a good thing.

          This is a small bag but it holds my Canon EOS M with 22mm lens, a tripod and a 50 mm lens with adapter. It's the perfect size for a travel bag. It's very lightweight but it's well made and securely holds all my equipment.

              I got to see this bag before I bought it so I was pretty sure it would fit my camera and I was proved correct. The canon t3i fits snugly inside the bag with its 18-55mm kit lens attached. However if you have a larger lens with a longer zoom range you would have to remove it and stow it next to the camera. But if you're using a smaller lens like I am there is room for the camera with the lens attached and either another lens or whatever else you need to carry with you. I carry all the other small components I need in the bag, battery, cables, small notebook etc. Also well padded and sturdy.

                Lots of room in an incredibly small size. Also seems very well made. Only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that it is difficult to open with 1 hand when it is clasped. Easy when only the velcro is used, but that isn't as secure. I recommend this highly.

                        I chose this bag to hold my Sony Alpha NEX-C3, an interchangeable lens camera (approx. 4 inches by 3 inches by 1.5 inches), and its accompanying lenses - a zoom lens (approx. 3-4 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter), a macro lens (approx. 3-4 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter), and a pancake lens (approx. 1.5 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter). The main compartment is large enough for me also to slip my point-and-shoot camera, my wallet, and cell phone without any crowdedness. Without the above extra accessories, I can store another lens (approx. 3-4 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter), though the lens must be attached to the camera or stored very closely to it without any padding. The bag comes with 4 fully adjustable walls so that you can make your own compartments as needed. Additionally, there is a separate compartment in the front that holds an extra battery, a lenspen, an memory card, a small flash, and a hood. There are very thin pockets on both sides of the bag and on the back for holding very thin pamphlets, such as an owner's manual, or pens. The strap is easily adjusted for cinching the bag closer to your body and contains rubber underneath for a better grip.

                        I felt most pleasantly surprised by the bag's roominess, particularly with the adjustable walls in the main compartment. The bag is very sturdy and not easily tilted upside down, even when the front flap is open; at first, it seems precarious to carry the bag by the top handle while the flap is open because the bag naturally leans forward, but your equipment is secure. The bag feels weighty enough for me to drop my camera with a lens into the bag, close the flap, and continue rigorous activity before taking the next picture.

                        I am most disappointed by the thin side and back flaps. I could barely fit a pen in the side flaps, and the back flap is very tight when holding a 1/8-inch wide owner's manual and an index card. Also, the bag is available in only one color, which isn't bad, until you see the other Lowepro colors available for other styles.

                            I bought this bag to take my Olympus PEN with an extra lenses (the camera got scratched on the zipper of another brand bag taking it in and out). This bag is nicely made but unfortunately really not big enough and the next model up is too big. Also found that the flap was a bit restrictive as it only lifted 180 degrees .
