Vanguard Havana 38 overview

  • 1Description

For jaunts cross-town or cross-country, the tan Havana 38 Messenger Bag from Vanguard will hold and protect your DSLR with attached lens, 2-3 extra lenses, flash unit, accessories and a 15" 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 15" 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 38 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 38 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.

    Vanguard Havana 38 reviews

    Havana 38 Messenger Bag is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, high quality, good looking. I needed an extra bag that could occasionally hold a DSLR and a couple of extra lenses, but mostly would be used for carrying heavy school books (15 lbs worth) across campus to class. Vanguard's Havana 38 is beautiful in its style, materials and construction, but has a couple of features that are in need of improvement. This is the largest of the Havana bags, and one would expect the removable inner padded equipment box to be sized to fit the entire bag. There is so much free space between the box and the inside of the bag (4 or 5 inches lengthwise) that I thought perhaps a box for the medium size bag had been mistakenly put in this largest bag. I phoned Vanguard, and over a few days spoke with two people who researched the matter, and apparently all the extra empty space around the box is correct, and a mistake had not been made. I suggested to the product manager that a larger inner box would be appreciated by photographers who buy the largest size bag to carry the most gear possible. The second improvement that could be made is that there is only one carrying handle sewn into the rear of the bag. The bag is unbalanced if you try to hold it by this handle. A second handle sewn into the front of the bag is needed if you want to carry it in a balanced manner, grasping both handles, like a brief case. Other than these two quibbles, it is a very well made, attractive product. Four and a half stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome bag for street photography I love this bag, plenty of space and every accessible to contents inside. Well constructed and durable for field work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The bag is great, the raincover is useless The bag is great for uni, holds laptop Dell Inspiron 13-5000, power cable, water bottle and my Lumix 7 in its camera bag (I haven't uses the case that comes with the bag, yet). And it has some room to spare. It seems duarble enough, the strap has some length to it, which I don't need, but others might. My only problem is the rain cover. It's not 100% coverage AND has no passthrough for the handle or strap. Which makes the handle/strap useless if you want rain protection. And, when I tried to carry the bag with the strap, the rain cover partially comes off, exposing the bag. Raincover = useless. Additionally the rain cover is poorly made, the stitching is very weak, the seam is vulnerable to tearing and one of the velcro straps, is already half-off and i've only tried to use it once. tl;dr bag = good, rain pprotection is terrible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag This is great it will easily hold my camera and a spare lens (I'm sure given the space more than 2 lens can by carried). There are pockets for lots of other smaller items and what is going to be really helpful as we go to a lot of museums and this will be a bag that is in front of me unlike a back pack which more and more museums are making people carry backpacks on their front

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag. Right size. I kept looking for a bag that was just the right size. This is it. Interior padded zip case for the camera and a couple of lenses. Room next to the zippered case to put my flash unit. A couple of pockets for accessories, keys, etc. Small enough to take everywhere, large enough for what is needed for a day of shooting in New York or San Francisco.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great bag - wish I had bought two! This bag holds everything I need for a daily outing - 2 cameras plus lenses, card reader, battery charger, spare batteries, spare lens cap, notebook and pen, etc, and is lightweight enough and easy to carry. It will even hold a small tablet or laptop, but I don't use it that way. I use it as a field bag.
