Designed to look like a regular briefcase, the black Legion 45 Messenger Bag from Ruggard provides space for a DSLR with two zoom lenses, a flash, and a laptop up to 13.3". A quick-release buckle opens the front flap revealing three open slip pockets and a main compartment. Convenient for traveling, this messenger features a top zipper for easy access to the main compartment, and a hidden document pocket on the front flap to store essentials like your passport or I.D. For storing your photo gear, the bag comes with an internal basket, which can be removed from the main compartment.

          Used to tote an iPad or smaller screened computer and camera plus lenses, this bag takes me to the classroom and as well to outdoor shoots on the weekends. Carrying lenses can be tricky and this bag keeps them available and safe. Try it!

            This messenger bag is lightweight and has so many pockets!!! I found that i could put all my needed equipment for a typical day of shooting and still travel lightly. The cushion on the strap was comfortable and i almost forgot i had a bag on my shoulder!

            Comments about Ruggard Legion 45 Messenger Bag:

            My new "messenger bag" speaks for itself. She reminds me of a 'Pony Express Bag', thus, "Where's my pony". I am pleased with it and the experience I had with B & H in the process of my recent acquisition. B & H provided a well balanced selection of alternatives for carrying my new SLR camera, lenses & associated necessities. The only negative aspect to all of this is I was so enthralled with this "messenger bag" that after I purchased it, in the world of cyber-space, I invested in more 'tools of the trade' and came to the realization that I needed a bigger set-up in the bag department. So, long story short I have a great camera/lens/computer carrying system for the 'short trip' and now I get to checkout a bigger 'bag' to transport all of my camera/computer equipment in. Guess where I will start looking?

              I have recently downsized all the photo equipment I travel with, as well as my laptop. This bag easily holds 2 Olympus OMD-EM1 bodies, 2 lenses, a flash, various accessories, and my 13 inch laptop. It is very well designed, with a strap, a handle, and a trolley sleeve. Light, capacious, and easy to handle. What else could I want? Oh, price. There's that too. It is exceedingly affordable.

                    Very well made with lots of handy pockets and safety features like a vecro lock-strap over the zipper pull on the quick access slot on top of the bag. Easy to configure for DSLR with 2 or 3 lenses and flash yet compact profile to carry at side or sling style behind you. All fittings and materials look very sturdy and well made. And all for a great price.

                      Fits two DSLRs and their lenses (one attached, one dettached), a notebook and/or laptop, has room for extra batteries, memory cards, wallet/money. Plenty of space and its the perfect size to me, not too big or small. Its great for going in and out of your bag on shoots. It also keep everything very safe and well protected. I reccommend it.

                          I had been using a back pack camera bag but wanted something a little lighter and smaller. My DSLR, and 70-200mm lens with accessories fits perfectly. Love the zipper top for quick access to my camera and gear when out in the field shooting. So far I have nothing I don't like about the bag. May even get a second bag for my wife's DSLR. I love it and would recommend this bag to anyone. Thank you.

                              The construction is just great. The finish of the zippers, the way to hide the passport pocket, the velcro protector at the end of the zipper, lots of room for a camera with lens, space for 2 more lenses, a tablet (or up to a 13 inch small laptop), I mean its just a fantastic deal. The only negative is that the top access is limited, it really is meant to provide quick access to your camera. To access your lenses, or other accessories, it is much better to flip open the bag, then you have easy access to your gear. Thanks B&H for the email with the introduction.
