Compagnon Leather Camera Bag.

I have 2 new Compagnon purchased from B&H and note the Medium Messenger bag I was able to grab on a one shot sale. Both bags are extremely well made and have very soft leather. Both bags are very good looking and have inserts to set up the interior any way you like. However, I had to add a little padding to both bags as the padding seemed a little on the thin side. Now the bags are both perfect in my eyes, although I never have banged my camera bags or dropped them. Guess when I am carrying around $8,000 worth of equipment I want to be extra careful. I would highly recommend either of these bags or both, expensive but well worth it.

thoughtful design make this bag very practical.

design highlights 1) very soft leather shell but structural construction. 2)  the silent and secure magnetic closing clasp on the front flap. 3) wide sling & shoulder pad advantages 1) convenient: front flap secure to open & convenient to close (many cases the drapery but firm shape front flap close automatically). Both open & close using 1 hand only. 2) comfort to carry. thanks the wide & drapery sling. It contour to the shoulder & body. the bag body simply follow the wear waist /hip contour. 3) inner space is good enough to house 2 body& two lens. In my case, there are a Fujifilm X-H1 + 90mm lens & X-Pro 3 + 16mm 1.4 or 35mm 1.4 *no magnetic force detected inside the bag compartment. no need worry if magnetic mechanism lens would be affected. In short it is a bag beyond my expectation. I will use it for a long long time.

Fantastic Bag!

This Compagnon Medium Messenger is a wonderful bag. The leather is the softest, most supple I've ever seen or felt in a bag, yet it is strong and confidence inspiring. It is comfortable to carry, and easy to organize. Highly recommended if one wants a premium bag. Not cheap, but well worth the price.

Can i fit 2 gripped cameras in this bag? Or at least one gripped (Nikon D4) and a Nikon D850 with lenses mounted?
Asked by: Alistair M.
The medium messenger is ideal for one gripped DSLR with attached lens (not Tele) + 2 lenses on the sides. A Nikon D4 will fit inside.
