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.

      I can fit in my Canon T3i - 70mm to 300mm Lens, 28mm to 135mm Lens, 50mm lens and the kit lens (18mm to 55mm). In the front pocket I can fit filters and hard drives, remotes and batteries, and more!It does require using the dividers in in a different way.

        I received the bag the day I left for a trip. I packed it with my Nikon P7700, mini-iPad, and lots of extras for those items. It was great! I am a professional photographer, so I also had my big gear with me. But, I always carry my smaller Nikon and a iPad mini with me. This bag organizes my extra gear as well as protecting it from accidents and/or the elements. I recommend it for extra and/or small "always-with-you gear.

        Very Good But Could Be Improved

        Comments about Event Messenger 150 Shoulder Bag (Black):

        I purchased this bag for my Fuji X-T1 w/ 18-135mm zoom, 10-24mm zoom and 27mm pancake lenses. Everything fits very nicely. Using the padded separators I made a camera w/ mounted lens compartment, a zoom plus pancake lens compartment and a hoods plus grip compartment. All the small items go in the front compartment. That said I could still use additional pockets for a more organized bag. I'd like to see one or more outside accessible pockets and more pockets in the front compartment.

        I really like this bag's slim profile even while holding all of the already mentioned items and it rides well when cross-slung riding on my hip which is how I like to carry it.

        Even though I like this bag a lot and am using it every day, I could not come to terms with the buckling arrangement with the female section under the flap (not clearly shown in the photos). This is awkward to operate with one hand. I removed the female buckle section and had my dry cleaner remount it in front. Now I can deactivate the touch fasteners yet still have an easy-to-use closure.

        If the buckle situation doesn't bother you, then please consider this a five-star product.

        Nice bag with amble room and good camera protection for the price.
        I like the fact that the flap has both Velcro and a snap buckle for security.
        I think you could spend a great deal more money for a well known brand name and still have no better bag.

            I use the bag to hold my Sony a6000 camera, alongside two different size lenses. There are adjustable pouches in the bag making it easy to make a perfect fit for each lense or flash if you have one. There are spots for my charging cable, cellphone, winter gloves, Birding field guide, and even for my Binoculars in the back pouch!
            The clip option makes for a quiet opening of the bag or you can turn over the velcro for a more secure closure!
            Only had it for about a month so I dont know about durability.

              I use this for my Pentax K1000 35mm camera (very soon to be swapped for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 cam) and I love it! Clip stays secure and there's also velco that you can use or not use which I find very useful if I want a more secure seal. Fits my 50mm and 80-200mm lenes easily along with some filters and film. There's not a lot of padding so be sure to carry this with you at all times, don't leave it lying around for someone to knock over and break your precious camera.

              Bought it as a bag for extra lenses

              By Mad Hungarian

              from Washington State

              Comments about Event Messenger 150 Shoulder Bag (Black):

              I bought this not to keep a DSLR in it, but instead to keep a couple extra lenses in it for fast access, while my DSLR hangs on my other side on a BlackRapid strap. I was looking for something light, just the right size, and able to get lenses in and out of it fairly quickly with one hand. After trying a number of bags at my local camera store, i ended up buying this one. The one thing i don't like about it so far is the strap, but i suppose i can live with it or modify it.I'll be keeping two lenses in it -- an EF 16-35 f/4 IS, and either an EF 70-300 L or an EF 100-400 II. It holds the 70-300 with lens hood on, but i expect the 100-400 will have to have the hood reversed.I was also looking at some ThinkTank Retrospective bags, and almost bought one (their straps were much more confortable), but they weighed more and cost much more. And i was having a little more trouble getting my lenses in and out of them. The Retrospective 5 in particular fit my two lenses like a glove, but was too small for a 100-400 unfortunately, and also, well, looked just like a purse in the mirror.

                Holds just what I need for quick, get-up-and-go kind of photography. This holds my DSLR with telephoto lens attached (or alternatively, my film SLR with lens attached), two extra small lenses (a maximum of three per slot, depending on the size of the lenses - just note that you have to stack smaller lenses, and there won't be any padding in between stacked lenses), my macro filter, my speedlite (w/ flash bounce), all of my cords, my ion battery charger, my filters, my cleaning supplies and my extra memory card.

                It is especially good that it has velcro straps that you can use in place/in tandem with the strap buckle. I found that leaving the buckle off and only using the velcro makes it very easy to open the bag and switch lenses/equipment without even having to look at the bag. Much better than the more square bags that may tilt and drop all of your expensive equipment.

                I only wish that the strap weren't built on, since built on straps aren't always the most comfortable, and I would have liked metal rings instead so that I could use my custom strap. But otherwise, this fits all that I need.

                    I have been using this as my main bag for commuting and getting my camera to work or to the park. I am photography hobbyist, and I like to take my camera with me everywhere I go. This bag allows me to carry my Sony a6000 with attached 16-55mm lens, a 55-210mm zoom lens, a 90 mm macro with extension tube and adapter, a small flash, and some flash bouncers and filters, as well as a power adapter, strap, keys, wallet, pen, lenspen, and spare AAA batteries for the flash. I have to do a little stacking to make it all fit, but its a compromise between that and the relatively slim profile, and it doesn't matter since I'm mostly just trying to get gear from point A to point B. I take the bag with me on walks and in the field to switch lenses and to act as a weather protector if things go south. Water beads up nicely on the outer flap, though I wouldn't trust the waterproofing in a deluge. I can put stuff I want to access quickly on top with my camera in hand. And it has a fairly slim profile, which is nice. I use a smaller bag for just the camera, but this is great for the entire kit. Perfectly suits my needs. It has a padded tablet pocket as well, though I mostly store my diffusers and bouncers in there. The strap is fairly comfortable for short hikes.

                    There's really nothing wrong with it, though it would just be kind of cool if you could also access the storage area with a zippered panel an the side, so you didn't have to go around and pull out dividers to get to stuff further down.

                        I love this bag! It's very secure and has plenty of dividers that you can move around to your liking. I adjusted the dividers to hold my Sony A65 with lens attached, then put another divider over the lens so it can't go anywhere. My spare lens easily and securely fits in the other half of the bag I sectioned off. This setup works with both my regular and zoom (200mm) lens attached (at separate times, of course).
                        The smaller zipper holds my wallet, phone, extra batteries, SD cards, lens cleaning cloth and spray, ect.
                        Very lightweight. It gets a little heavy once you put the camera and 2nd lens in, but not too bad.
                        I love how secure it is! I was terrified putting my new camera in a bag, but I completely trust the bag now.

                        I use it to carry my work and personal things. Nikon camera with long lens fit perfect and have much more space for other fragile things. It also has a wonderful first pocket where wallet, pens, and accesories can be well protected. The best thing is an innovation by me :) I use it also to carry the tripod since it is small and fit perfect when I close the bag. Another supernice thing is the back space perfect for papers. At the end it looks serios and cool at the same time. Dont know what else to said but I have nothing bad. I recommend it to everyone.

                        I've had a number of Lowepro bags over time and this messenger bag is another example of Lowepro quality and efficient construction. Bought for my son for his first dslr bag and his first father's day. Easily holds his DSLR w/lens, his semi compact camera, & still has room for another small lens or flash or in his case storage for his battery charger & cord. IPad storage is perfect and room in the front for lens filter and other odds and ends. Well made and stylish. Might get one for myself at this price!

                          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.

                              This is a good size messenger bag. For me it replaces a much bigger bag, but holds almost as much. It easily holds a small or midsized DSLR with a midsize lens attached and 2 to 4 other lenses or 2 or 3 other lenses and a small or midsize flash. The front pocket holds filters, an extra batter or two, and misc gear.

                              I've collected a lot of bags over the years, but now I just use the Event Messenger 150 and the smaller 100.

                                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 :)
