The night blue and pacific Snoop DSLR Camera Messenger Bag 2013 from Timbuk2 is a modular bag that is sized to hold your DSLR with attached lens, extra lens, flash, memory cards, and a 13.3" MacBook Pro. The removable zippered insert with padded dividers allows you to sculpt the interior to accommodate your photographic needs. When the dividers are completely removed, the bag features a single central divider to separate your laptop from any collateral material or files.

The bag can be used shoulder or sling-style. The Tru Fit cam buckle on the shoulder strap rapidly unclips to lengthen the strap to wear the Snoop cross body. The front flap is closed with two quick-release buckles or two touch fasteners supplied with silencers that eliminate the ripping sound normally generated by touch fasteners.

The bag has three front zippered accessory pockets and one slash pocket for small items. There's also a Napoleon-style vertically zippered front pocket for additional accessories. The bottom of the bag has two reinforced straps to secure a tripod. The Snoop is made from ballistic nylon with a waterproof TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) liner.

            Comments about Timbuk2 Snoop DSLR Camera Messenger Bag 2013 (Night Blue/Pacific):

            After a two-week trip to Ireland, I started looking for a bag that didn't require a separate rain cover.

            The Snoop bags seemed to fit the bill, but it is so poorly designed that it's just a pain to use. It makes me wonder if T2 ever consulted a working photographer, or just had a bunch of stoner bike messengers design the bag. I'm still deciding what I'm willing to live with and if I should return the bag or not.

            First, the camera bag insert: I usually place my camera face down (between two dividers) in my bag so it takes up less space and is easier to get to. The dividers provided with the bag are fairly worthless for this; two of them stand upright but have an accordion fold in the middle so they provide no support, and the other two are way too stiff to be of any use.

            The only way I could arrange the bag as I wanted was to borrow some dividers from another bag; I shouldn't have to do with a bag of this quality.

            As noted by others, there is no padding provided for the laptop sleeve, and it seems that if you do put something in it, it ends up being crammed between your body and your camera gear.

            Next are the pockets. The bag has four front pockets, which is way too confusing. All of them are envelop-style, meaning they have no depth. The may be good for a few memory or business cards, but they are of little use for wider items, such as batteries, a charger, or filters—the stuff that photographers usually carry with them.

            It would have been better to have only one or two pockets and give them some depth, as you find on most other camera bags.

            The bottom tripod straps are a welcome feature, but as others have said, they just dangle off the bottom when not in use. It would have been better if there were four D-rings on the bottom edges of the bag, along with some straps, so they could be removed when not in use.

            While I understand the quick release buckle feature, it is just another item that dangles off of this bag. There are some many straps and buckles dangling off this bag that it reminds me of the truck from the Beverly Hillbillies traveling down the road. The quick release is of use for bike riders, less so for photographers.

            And as others have noted, the strap is way too stiff and slippery and limits how you can carry the bag.

            Overall, a B for effort and an F for features, leaving us with an only a so-so bag for photographers.

              Ample space, strong materials, and yes, it is waterproof! Where I live it rains daily (Puerto Rico), so I've tested how waterproof the bag is... And it definitely is... A must buy

                ... it needs some side pockets. Also the bottom tripod holder should be removable cause I rarely use it.
