Absolutely superb

What can I say but absolutely superb. After spending quite some time looking at bag to house my Leica M10, lenses and accessories this one seemed like it would do the job. Now, after using it for nearly a year, I consider it to be one of the best purchases I've ever made, and definitely the best bag I own. For my Fuji X series, it's Think Tank. But for Leica, I needed something more stylish - and Compagnon oozes stylish. It holds my body, spare battery, charger, cable and all my seven lenses (17/8, 21/2.8, 28/2, 35/2, 50/1.4, 75/1.5, 90/2.8). The complete kit in one bag. The bag is beautifully crafted, very cool looking and made to last for years. As long as I have that camera I won't need another bag. Ever.

Superb quality and design

Only had it for a few weeks, but I'm vey impressed with this Little Messenger bag. Perfect size to fit my Leica M10 with six lenses, plus iPad, spare battery and card. The leather is beautiful and all the fittings feel great quality and will last the test of time. I don't see myself ever needing another bag as this feels like it will last for ever.

Gorgeous bag

I dislike backpacks, they are bulky and time consuming to access. My travel case is a Pelican 1535, but for a day shoot, the Little Messenger is perfect. It will hold my Canon 5D with an attached 85mm lens, plus room for a second lens and misc small accessories, or if I carry my camera, two lenses and lots of accessories. Its the perfect size, easy to access, plus its a beautifully crafted leather bag.

What is different in gen 2 vs original?
Asked by: Alejandro
These are the features which were improved in the second generation of the little messenger: - Fidlock magnetic fastener instead of push button - Sewn selvages (nobler design) - High quality bull leather, vegetable tanned in Germany instead of buffalo leather, tanned in Italy. - new water-repellent coated YKK zippers - smaller logo embossing - the long inner pad is now foldable. - Belt can be adjusted longer (more suitable for larger persons) - small inner pockets that can be flexibly velcroed.

Are the inserts built-in or can you take them out ...

Are the inserts built-in or can you take them out and make the bag slimmer for when you're not carrying camera gear?
Asked by: Buddhi
The inserts in the compagnon "The Little Messenger" Generation 2 Camera Bag (Light Brown, Leather) can be taken out and or repositioned.
