Lowepro Pro Messenger Bag 200 AW (Slate Gray)
Key Features
  • Holds Pro DSLR,Grip, 3 Lenses, Flash
  • Soft-Sided, Canvas-Like Fabric
  • Built to Fit Pro-Sized Gear
  • Quiet, Quick FlexFlap Design
The slate gray Pro Messenger Bag 200 AW from Lowepro is a shooters bag and a bit larger than Lowepro's Pro Messenger 180AW bag. This is a slightly different style of bag than a traditional shoulder bag since it features Lowepro's exclusive FlexFlap that opens and closes without buckles or snaps. The touch fastened closure opens and closes with ease - the way you want a bag to open when you need your gear at the drop of a hat. When the shot comes along, you'll be ready with gear in hand. The interior is divided in half with main compartment and a zippered storage pocket. Hence, the bag is made to hold a pro DSLR with grip and attached zoom lens, plus two extra lenses and a flash in main compartment or a pro DSLR with grip and attached 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lens (facing sideways), plus a flash in the zippered compartment.

It's made from a tough exterior canvas-like material that is made to take a beating and meets Lowepro's usual high standards. The shoulder strap is wide, adjustable and padded since Lowerpro knows you'll be outside much of the day and need to be comfortable. However, if the weather turns against you, they've included a neat All-Weather cover that can be rapidly deployed for complete protection from the elements.

The interior is filled with adjustable dividers that permit you to configure the bag to suit your equipment needs. There's also a zippered interior pocket that can hold additional gear. A SlipLock Attachment Loop is included on each side for those small quick grab items that you don't want to waste time searching for in your bag such as a pouch, keys, flashlight or cleaning cloth.  As a final touch, there's a Dual Purpose Pocket in the rear that can be opened and used as a trolley sleeve.

Backed by Lowepro's lifetime warranty, this bag will get you up, out and shooting - in all kinds of weather and with the gear you need in a bag that doesn't weigh you down and is easy to use.

will it fit a 13 inch laptop as well as a sony a7 and a couple smaller lenses and maybe some flashes?
Asked by: alex b.
Yes it will. It's beautifully constructed and all the internal compartments allow you to adjust to your individual requirements The cherry on the top is that it also has a compartment that quickly converts to a sleeve and then can be slid over the pull handle of a pro roller bag .I'm glad I bought mine.

Hi,I am wondering if my 15inch laptop would fit in this bag, even though its not officially stated it will carry one? I am not going to carry camera gear and laptop together, it one or the other.The dimension for laptop and interior bag dimensions are below:14.8 x 10.2 x 1.4 inches (Dell n5110 15.4in):15.4 x 9.4 x 6.3 inches (interior bag dimensions) Looking at the dimensions alone, the width and depth should fit fine, but the laptop is 0.8 inches higher than the bag, but since the bag has a long and floppy cover, I am thinking I can easily close the cover over it.Thanks in advance

I have an ASUS 15 laptop that measures 15 wide and about 10 tall and it will fit into the Lowepro 200 AW bag. Of course, you will need to remove any dividers. I have a picture of my laptop sitting at the mouth of the bag there is no way of posting the photo here. I didn't remove the dividers since it took some time and effort to get them to work with my gear, but it will definitely fit.It's a well built and padded bag with a heavy canvas fabric on the exterior and you might find it overkill for a laptop, even with a full complement of accessories. You could likely store a dSLR (body only) in the front pocket as well any smaller camera.I can load this bag out with my 1DX wearing a 24-70, an 85 f/1.2, and a 70-200 f/2.8 II IS, flash and a battery pack and feel confident everything will be well protected. For those days I want something lightweight, I'll use a Domke.

Is the 200 AW tall enough to store a 6D with 70-200 4IS lens attached vertically?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, the Lowepro Pro Messenger Bag 200 AW is not tall enough to store a 6D with 70-200 f/4 attached vertically. To store a camera body with 70-200mm lens in this bag, you will need to store it horizontally, with the lens facing sideways.
