For jaunts cross-town or cross-country, the tan Havana 33 Messenger Bag from Vanguard will hold and protect your DSLR with attached lens, 1-2 extra lenses, flash unit, accessories and a 13" laptop. The bag features a zippered main compartment covered by a large flap with two quick-release straps. Inside this compartment is a removable, padded insert with two removable padded dividers for organizing your gear.

For everyday excursions which don't involve photography, you may free up space for extra personal gear by removing the insert. Within the shoulder bag next to the insert is a slip-in pocket with a touch-fastening tab for storing your 13" notebook. On the front wall of the compartment is a sewn-in pouch with two clear, slip-in memory card pockets.

The exterior, front flap of the Havana 33 features a zippered pocket for storing your smartphone, wallet, and other small items. Inside this pocket is a key lanyard and a removable rain cover. Each side of the bag features a slip-in pocket for holding a water bottle, gloves, or similarly sized items which closes with a fabric cover.

The Havana 33 can be carried by its top handle or adjustable, padded shoulder strap. For traveling with rolling luggage, the back of the bag features a convenient handle, pass-through strap. And for improved interior visibility when locating gear in low light, the inside of the bag is made of light gray 150D polyester and velvet.

Could the Havana 33 bag fit a 15" laptop?

Could the Havana 33 bag fit a 15" laptop?
Asked by: Alejandro
The interior, while flexible with the inserts removed, seems to max out at slightly over 14”, maybe 15”. The flap will latch but you’ll be limited in how many additional items you can include. There is an interior sleeve that measures 13 long by 9 high which easily fits a 12.9 inch iPad Pro with case and barely accommodates a Dell Latitude 7480 14” laptop. The latter fits easily into the main storage area so you can likely fit a 15” laptop but I feel it would be at the expense of fitting multiple larger lenses and other camera equipment. This might also limit the use of the outside pockets which will be “pushed” by the laptop dimensions. For reference, the shell of the laptop I mentioned measures 15.5” diagonally, 13” wide by 9” deep when lying flat.

Will the side pocket hold a standard size water ...

Will the side pocket hold a standard size water bottle (12 or 16.9 oz)?
Asked by: Robert
I originally ordered a Havanna 33 but found it to be smaller than I expected. The Havanna 38 is perfect for my needs, and B & H made the exchange quickly and efficiently. I slip a 16 oz. Contigo hot liquid container into the side pocket every day as I head to work. I love this bag. I don't use it as a camera bag (despite a previous career as a commercial photographer), but the camera insert helps me keep everything organized.
