The mica Lowepro Event Messenger 150 Shoulder Bag is a lightweight yet durable messenger-style bag that holds a DSLR or mirrorless system camera, tablet, and accessories. It can hold a DSLR with an attached lens, 2-3 extra lenses up to a 70-200mm f/2.8, or a flash with two lenses, accessories and personal items.

The bag features a padded compartment to hold a tablet. It also has an easily accessible main compartment, adjustable dividers, a front flap, as well as an additional zippered closure for the main compartment. The interior is customizable using adjustable touch fastened dividers.

The Dual-Mode Flap system consists of touch fasteners that can be used to close the bag without using the snap coupler. The fasteners can fold back so that when you open the bag, it will not make the ripping sound that hook-and-loop touch fasteners are known for. The front zippered accessory compartment contains pockets for pens, memory cards and your phone. The bag is carried by an adjustable shoulder strap or its top grab handle for quick access retrieval. It's made from a combination of a nylon polyurethane exterior and polyester, tricot, foam interior.

        This bag's design is well thought out. You can fit plenty of gear for such a small bag.The strap is sewn into the bag so you cannot replace it. I don't think you can find a better bag for the money.

          This is the perfect size camera bag. Not too small, not too large. Great for daily use, when you just need one camera, one lens, and the various other things like memory cards, batteries, smartphone, etc. I like all the compartments. It's easy to get in and out of and find everything. Also fits an iPad. I used this bag every day on a recent trip to Morocco -- even used it as my purse when flying, with my gear in my larger carry-on camera bag. I'm very happy I bought this size camera bag.

            I use this product to take it to kids ball games and photo walks etc..It looks and feels good and very light to carry. It fits 24-70 f2.8 attached to camera and 70-200 f2.8 easily after you remove all the extra partitions. Even though you can fit iPad or Surface with camera gear, i don't use it. I saw people complaining about the length of belt, I am 6'1" and it feels perfect to me. It could be personal preference though. If you are planning to take this bag for day or two with smaller lens, you could fit charger and may be flash. I have Caselogic backpack to lug around whole gear but this bag is very useful on a daily basis and you don't look like a DORK with this bag on :)

              Comments about Lowepro Event Messenger 150 For DSLR + Tablet (Mica):

              This bag was an excellent choice and I've thrilled with it. Well made, light weight, plenty of dividers for customization, and comfortable to carry. I have my Canon 6D plus attached Canon EF 24-105 mm F/4 (plus hood) + Canon EF 70-200 mm F/4 IS (plus hood) + Canon Speed lite 430 EX II and my Ipad. The front pouch holds my charger and batteries with plenty of room to spare, only bulging out the front ever so slightly. The extra pockets in there are perfect for the extra SD disk card or filters. I love the added feature of Velcro close for quick access, or latch close for security against jostling. This bag is perfect for walking in a city. I would highly recommend this bag to anyone looking for a easy and portable camera bag.

                Comments about Lowepro Event Messenger 150 For DSLR + Tablet (Mica):

                I recently bought a EOS M 18-55 kit and a 55-250 EF-S lens to go with it. This Messenger 150 is excellent for my needs. It's not too big, yet it can fit some extra stuff if I need it. I can even put my old 35-85 and a Zoom H4n inside the main compartment. The front part (under the flap) is nicely zippered and has multiple sacs where one can put items. The EOS M charger just fits perfectly into the leftmost pocket. I think there could be a better way to store SD cards. The current situation makes it so you have to push up from the bottom of the SD slot so you can remove it. Minor annoyance. The strap is also very high quality, with even a rubbery part on the inside so it can hold on to your shoulder better. In all, this bag is great for its value and worth.

                Was looking for a bag that could accommodate our DSLR, HandyCam and tablet without being too bulky to carry along. This bag has great modular dividers to fit whatever your gear requires. Looking forward to catching the good times without hulking around a huge camera bag.

                  So I have a lot of bags and did I need one more - the next perfect bag? Well yes! I have a Lowepro Hatchback but it's a little big for around town (a great bag). The messenger bag is perfect for just carrying some gear. I can fit a Pentax K5 with a 18-250 lens, a macro 90mm lens and another lens with a iPad and most of my "little" gear like filters, extra cards, etc. It's light weight and comfortable to carry.

                    Picked this up for a vacation, and it will cetainly force you to select carefully what you carry with you! A 70-200/2.8 will NOT fit if attached to the body, but will as a separate lens. The tripod collar will crowd things a lot, especially if you have a QR plate on it.

                    I managed to fit: a Canon 50d with 24-105/4L IS attached; a 70-200/2.8L, 50/1.4 and a 1.4tc. The camera and lens must lay on edge to fit, the 50 and 1.4tc are on the very bottom under 2 separators. Extra batteries must go into an end pocket. That's stuffed and bulges the front panel enough to make latching the cover difficult. Also if the front bulges much the compartments in front become squeezed too much to be useful for anything but paper-thin stuff. If you select this properly considering what you will carry and not overload it, this is a great bag.

                      I am just getting into photography...and i had a basic camera bag which came with the kit lens when i bought my slr camera (Nikon D5000) but i was able to carry only 2 lens with me. Recently i purchased 35mm 1.8G lens and was looking for reasonable priced camera bag which should fit into my requirements. I read lot of reviews of different camera bags.
                      Finally i zeroed in at lowepro event messanger 150 because
                      1) it was in my budget
                      2)i am able to carry D5000 camera with 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 35mm 1.8G lens along with my sony handicam, 3 radio triggers and battery charger and an extra battery.
                      3) it doesnt look like typical camera bag
                      4) i love the Dual-Mode Flap Design for Quiet Access which really helps when i am using the bag indoors.
                      i saw few reviews about this bag online but i wasnt quite sure about the thickness of interior padding but when i got the bag i was very happy with the interior padding.
                      i went for 150 instead of 100 because of the option for carrying the tablet but right now i dont have one but when i get one i will be able to carry the tablet in the bag.

                      I use the bag to contain D5100 camera with 18-55 package lens, the 55-300 package lens and a medium sized flash unit. The pockets are just right for spare battery and charger as well as various filters and incidentals. The larger fabric slots hold a notebook, small reflector that fits on my flash.

                          Very easy to use, good quality materials, and in green color you wouldn't easily notice there is a camera and lenses inside, I mean it's not an invitation for thieves.

                            A nice messenger bag that can carry a camera body and 2 to 3 lenses. Well padded inside to protect your equipment and an extra pocket for you iPad or a similar tablet. Water expelling on the outside. Very happy with it after 2 weeks of use.

                            The bag is exactly as advertised. I like all the pockets and it holds all my equipment nicely. I wish it came in other colors.

                            It was well built but it is very tight for my 60D woth 18-135 attached and 70-200 F4 and the flash. Have not had the chance to really put it to use yet. Now it is 6.2 x 13.5 x 10.5, and it will be perfect if it was 7" deep instead of 6.2". Check to make sure your gears will fit properly in this bag before make the purchase.

                              I got this to commute to work with my iPad and camera. The quality is very good for a [$]bag and it's light. Quiet velcro flap option is great for quiet shooting situations. The iPad fits snugly, but you won't be able to fit a full frame dslr with the iPad e.g. 5d mkii--it pushes the middle out and it's difficult to clip and secure the flap. It's a bit narrow, so if you are a 6'0 male, it may look like a murse on you. I decided to exchange this for the event messenger 250(only $10 more), which holds and iPad or a 13 inch laptop easily and a FF camera. This bag (150) is ideal for a very small dslr or micro 4/3 camera and an iPad.
