Ape Case Envoy overview

  • 1Description

The blue AC540BL Envoy Standard Messenger Camera Case from Ape Case is a bit larger than the AC520 version that holds a compact DSLR. This version holds a larger DSLR along with the same amount of gear and accessories. It's still a very affordable way to carry a minimum of gear - your DSLR with two lenses, flash and some accessories. Made from tough, water-repellent rip-stop nylon, the bag has a unique removable padded interior insert that, when not needed, can be set aside to increase its overall interior storage space.

Another benefit of the case is that it doesn't resemble your traditional camera shoulder bag - yet - it holds its share of equipment. There's plenty of extra space for accessories in the two zippered front storage pockets (one on top of the other) as well as two additional interior zippered pockets. All these pockets can be used for memory cards, batteries, cleaning cloths, filters or other small items.

Access to the contents is easy via the center zipper that exposes the interior that uses Ape's exclusive Hi-Vis yellow coloring that will make locating your gear easier when you're shooting in marginal light. The shoulder strap is fully adjustable and contains a cushioned contoured pad with non-slip grip. The AC540BL is backed by Ape's limited lifetime warranty against defects.

Holds a compact/large DSLR with lens plus accessory flash and additional lens
"Unconstructed" form in messenger-style looks and works great
Rip-stop nylon fabric in attractive blue is ultra-light yet extremely durable
Removable padded interior in Ape Case's signature Hi-Vis yellow protects your equipment

Two front zippered pockets for accessories
Two interior zippered pockets for accessories

    Ape Case Envoy reviews

    AC540BL Envoy Standard Messenger Camera Case (Blue) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag This is a great camera bag and a tremendous value. It is deceptively small but hold a lot of gear. It has lots of pockets and compartments. The only minor down side is that it does not have padding on the top of the bag and only has a shoulder strap but no handle. Other then that it is perfect. It is a nice looking back but does not look like a camera bag. It is comfortable and light weight. It holds my Nikon D7100, Three Tamron lenses 10 - 24, 18- 75, & 70 - 300 VC, SB 910 flash with accessories and users manual, grey card, IPad Mini, Extra camera battery and alkaline batteries, remote shutter release, softbox, lens paper and lens cloth. Pretty amazing!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like it but don't love it I use the bag for a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and an external macro lens for the Canon. I was able to pack a lot of other stuff in the bag - extra batteries, lens cleaning cloths, memory sticks, battery charger and cord, phone, Kindle Fire, etc. My two main concerns with the bag are 1) the zippers seem rough like maybe it wouldn't take much for them to get stuck and non-function. 2) I am only 5'3 1/2 and I can't adjust the strap to the shorter length I want/need and still have the comfort shoulder pad anywhere near my shoulder. It is difficult and awkward to use the shoulder strap and that's the only way the bag can be carried. It's like it wasn't made with the idea in mind that a shorter woman might use the bag. Since the strap is permanently attached to the bag I can't remove it and use another strap either. Other than those two concerns I am happy with it and will try to deal with the strap problem somehow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera bag for Street Photography This bag is small but mighty in its usage function. I'm able to fix in a Nikon D7100 attached with a Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens and two other lens. You can also squeeze in an iPad. The bag is light with its content and great for walking about the city to snap some great city photographs. The front compartments are great for other accessories such as spare battery, cleaning cloth, wallet, keys, etc. All in all, it's a great shoulder bag. I'd recommend this to people who are looking to purchase a camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from piece of mind I have bought so many camera bags and all of them shout Expensive camera in this bag. Now this one does not attract attention any where you go. It is very light, durable, not at all expensive but most of all it can carry your DSLR with lens attached to it and an extra lens on the well padded inside compartment. The bag has plenty of zippered compartments inside and out. The only downside is that the shoulder pad is useless and I had to remove mine off. Other than that it's a great bag - buy it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bag I've been looking for the ideal camera bag for a couple of years and have finally found it. This bag is lightweight and fairly compact. I carry my Olympus camera with either a 100-300 or 12-60 lens attached, and the other in the bag along with a couple of filters, extra batteries, charger, a card reader and cable release. I can even fit my strap inside which is a bit bulky. There's also room for my iPad or Macbook Air and two pockets inside for keys, phone, wallet, etc. Everything in the bag is easily accessible and it's pretty comfortable to carry; although fully loaded, I would rather not have to carry it all day. The padded camera insert can be removed and the bag can be used as a carry-on or day bag when not being used as a camera bag. The only feature I miss is an outside pocket for a water bottle and the ability to slide it on a wheeling suitcase handle. I would recommend this bag to anyone looking for a versatile, lightweight bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time will tell but so far so OK Nice construction. Design is like a universal messenger bag. It doesn't scream, expensive camera inside. Nice colors and has adequate compartments. Slightly smaller than I expected. Enough room for camera, extra lens, a speed-lite or two and accessories. I think it's going to work out well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and weight! This bag delivers as promised... fits a DSLR (D90) with attached lens, plus two additional items (lens/speedlight). Ample zippered pockets for accessories and space to slide a micro softbox in folded position. Easy to find dark items inside brightly colored lining. Even when bag is full to capacity, shoulder pad is comfortable and adjusts. I've been waiting for a bag like this for a long time. It was out of stock so I signed up for a notification, got one from B&H in just a few days and ordered it right away. My guess is that this one will be in high demand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Unassuming Does the Job I recently purchased the APE Envoy Standard Messenger Camera Case AC540BL. It is amazing, the perfect bag I have been looking for, for years. Excellent for street photography. Its appearance is unassuming, inexpensive, and simple. The main compartment's zipper is bi-directional. Clever. From the item photos on APE's website its impossible to see the two zippered pockets on the inside (which are great) although they mentioned them in the description. The loud yellow removable padded insert is a brilliant color making it easy to see the contents in dimmer light. The outer zipped pocket is big enough for three camera batteries and has two sewn pockets for smartphones or pens, etc. The outer pocket also has a small zippered outer slip pocket big enough for a passport. The main compartment is big enough to accommodate two 7 inch lenses, and a short body camera with 3-4 inch lens attached; or two bodies with lenses attached and a large flash. An excellent bag all-around but I think it could be improved. The padded shoulder pad is very comfortable but fixed, so that it can slip over the length of the strap but cannot be removed. Which means that it was designed for people who wear crisscrossed over their chest (long strap), or for tall people wearing in hanging their shoulder (shorter strap). If you are NOT tall AND wear it over one shoulder the shoulder pad will not fit, it will be useless. A velcro flapped shoulder pad that is removable and can be reattached to a much shortened strap, would give even greater flexibility. A great product at a good price. I only wish it had been available in gray or black, although the blue is dark navy, not bright blue.
