    compagnon The Messenger reviews

    "the messenger" Generation 2 Camera Bag (Light Brown, Leather) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Bag but little more width and height would help This is truly a bag with Craftsmanship at the highest Level. I am a full frame Nikon shooter and have a big rig Body, Battery grip and rrs L bracket. This bag is snug with my setup but does fit. With a 70-200 2.8 attached it is a bit tall. I opt to fit the 70-200 separately and it works out better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Leather, Thought through design I have lots of bags and this really stands out, the leather is soft and light, the closing mechanism is convenient, also the strap is very comfortable to carry some gear. The Campanon is not just an old fashioned leather bag with camera compartment, it's supported by modern design and materials. There is a layer of high tech fabric beneath the leather strap so I wouldn't worry about the leather break up. This is a bit too big for my Leica shootout (unless I take all the bodies and lens, which I don't ever) but just right for Hasselblad. It really looks big on the web especially comparing to the little and medium version, but I have to say it's not that big either. Anyway, I think this is really an amazing leather bag, my only concern is there will be too many people carrying this on the street since B&H carries it now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large enough and quality stitching. I always carried a messenger camera bag but it was time to update. This bag is not very small but large enough for my camera and 4 lenses. A 24-70mm, 70-200mm and some other lenses fits in this bag with no problems. It is solid built with top notch stitching. Easy to open on top and sides, easy to close. It even has a compartment for a laptop. Happy I purchased this bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but Brilliant Debated for a long time on getting this bag. I have to say now that I've very happy with it. Lots of great design elements, from the magnetic closure to the pocket design and strap. The craftsmanship here is top notch. Quality leather and stitching. The strap is smartly only covered in leather so that it won't stretch over time. The shoulder pad is removable and works really well with it's non-slip material. The pockets are lovely with just what you need. The laptop slot is nicely padded and placed. The rear strap is perfect for travel as it slides perfectly over the handles of a carry-on suitcase. The camera space is large with good dividers which and be done all sorts of ways. The top flap is nicely closed at the ends so that nothing comes out of the bag. Each pocket is efficient to access and use. So far I've got nothing bad to say about this bag. I guess I'll need to check back in after a year or two to complain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite bag As I have yet to make the move to mirrorless this bag suits my needs perfectly. It holds my 1DX with 24-70 F2.8L attached, as well as my 70-200mm F2.8L, my Flash, my 13” Laptop & more! Plus the leather & craftsmanship is second to non!!
