Designed to look like a regular briefcase, the black Legion 45 Messenger Bag from Ruggard provides space for a DSLR with two zoom lenses, a flash, and a laptop up to 13.3". A quick-release buckle opens the front flap revealing three open slip pockets and a main compartment. Convenient for traveling, this messenger features a top zipper for easy access to the main compartment, and a hidden document pocket on the front flap to store essentials like your passport or I.D.

    Ruggard Legion 45 reviews

    Legion 45 Messenger Bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding quality for a $ bag The construction is just great. The finish of the zippers, the way to hide the passport pocket, the velcro protector at the end of the zipper, lots of room for a camera with lens, space for 2 more lenses, a tablet (or up to a 13 inch small laptop), I mean its just a fantastic deal. The only negative is that the top access is limited, it really is meant to provide quick access to your camera. To access your lenses, or other accessories, it is much better to flip open the bag, then you have easy access to your gear. Thanks B&H for the email with the introduction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome products I had been using a back pack camera bag but wanted something a little lighter and smaller. My DSLR, and 70-200mm lens with accessories fits perfectly. Love the zipper top for quick access to my camera and gear when out in the field shooting. So far I have nothing I don't like about the bag. May even get a second bag for my wife's DSLR. I love it and would recommend this bag to anyone. Thank you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality camera bag I had a Lowepro,inexpensive, messenger bag that I really liked,but wanted a bag with a few more extras.This bag has them...well made,spacious,has a rain-cover,easy top access so one doesn't have to continually lift up a flap to grab something,has a zipper so as to expand the inside for long lenses,and has many small pockets for smaller items.I have been a bag-freak fot years,and I can truly say,that,this might be the best of the bunch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me and a terrific value I have recently downsized all the photo equipment I travel with, as well as my laptop. This bag easily holds 2 Olympus OMD-EM1 bodies, 2 lenses, a flash, various accessories, and my 13 inch laptop. It is very well designed, with a strap, a handle, and a trolley sleeve. Light, capacious, and easy to handle. What else could I want? Oh, price. There's that too. It is exceedingly affordable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs! The perfect bag to carry my compact DSLR, two lenses, flash, 13 MacBook Air and extra accessories. Just the right size to be comfortable to carry and easy to access. I'd definitely recommend this bag for anyone in a similar situation as mine. Plus, B&H is simply the best!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits a lot I was looking for a small, lightweight bag that I could use for sports photography that was tall enough to fit a telephoto zoom attached to the camera. This is the only one that wasn't bulky and gigantic. But when I first opened this bag, I almost sent it back. It looked impossible to get into, and it looked like it fit nothing. When I opened the zipper to expand the width and started loading my gear, I was amazed. It fit my 5D Mark IV with 100-400mm lens attached, my 70-200, and my 24-105. Granted- a tight squeeze with 3 lenses, but they fit. The only thing I don't like is the fixed laptop sleeve, but it seems like every camera manufacturer thinks we carry around a laptop whenever we use a camera. If this padding was removable, the bag would be even better. I get a lot of use out of the outside pocket, and the inside pockets hold a ton of stuff. The zipper on the top allows me to pull out the camera and big lens without opening the bag. And the flap folds completely back and stays there. It's stable. I was using a Kelly Moore bag that was constantly falling over and spilling my gear. I bought this bag and the next size up and planned to send one back. I ended up keeping both because they are so reasonably priced.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't hold much The bag has a very well padded section to hold a laptop. But this then limits the space available to hold a DSLR and additional lens. So if you have a full size DSLR, you may want to opt for a larger bag. I haven't decided if I will keep this bag due to the lack of real space. You would have to use the bag with the zippered expansion section open. Overall the bag is very well constructed for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great bag Fits two DSLRs and their lenses (one attached, one dettached), a notebook and/or laptop, has room for extra batteries, memory cards, wallet/money. Plenty of space and its the perfect size to me, not too big or small. Its great for going in and out of your bag on shoots. It also keep everything very safe and well protected. I reccommend it.
