Designed to look like a regular briefcase, the black Legion 65 Messenger Bag from Ruggard provides space for a DSLR with a battery grip, three lenses, two flashes, 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.

When you need some extra room, simply unzip the expansion zipper that runs along the bottom of the bag to add 1.5" of space. A padded shoulder strap or grip handles can be used to carry the bag.

    Ruggard Legion 65 reviews

    Legion 65 Messenger Bag is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convertible Bag Use it to carry my field gear to the site. 5D/6D, AKG XLR/Shure, and lenses. It all just fits. This is what I call my pickup bag. Why? I just pick it up and it has all that I need. What is really great is that once i am onsite I just lift out all the equipment at once for easy access and get ready in an instant. Then I use the empty bag with pockets for my portable field mixer and power packs. It is very well built and offers good protection. The integrated pull out/tethered rain cover is nice. Only wish the pockets would open up deeper. They all work great, but a little more pull out depth would make it that much better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Camera Bag A well made functional camera bag that can hold more then expected. Currently has one DSLR with 17-55 attched, one 70-300, one 150-600, a nifty 50 two flashes ( or one flash with a second camera body), batteries, and other small things. The bag does not feel overly packed. Comfortable enough to carry however not like a backpack for longer periods/distances on foot. Rain cover not great does not cover back of bag and perhaps only shower proof. Overall very happy with the bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not what I expected but still ok I needed a camera bag that would make it easier to carry my camera and laptop with accessories for both in a single bag. I travel for business and airline carry-on restrictions mean that I can't have a camera bag, a computer bag, and my luggage. I liked the look of a messenger-style bag and after talking to B&H support I made the decision to purchase the Ruggard Legion 65. The good: The bag holds my Nikon D7000 with extra lens, flash, batteries, etc and also my Mac Air 13 laptop with power cord and external hard drives as well as a small notebook. It has a comfortable strap and a top carrying handle. It is well constructed and slips on the handle of my carry-on easily and securely. The disappointing: The bag does NOT look like a messenger bag. The top is square making it look, in my opinion, like a camera bag. The shape makes it feel bulky and large. I wish the bag was a couple of inches taller so that the top flap could fold over like a true messenger bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the money! I think the question most of us have when buying something online, that we've not had the opportunity to look at first hand, is will it work for me. The dimensions provided by the manufacturer can be misleading at times and few reviews list what users are carrying in the bag. Luckily Ruggard provided both external and internal dimensions so that my decision to purchase the Legion 65 Messenger Shoulder Bag was made a lot easier. I already own the Ruggard Commando 36 DSLR Shoulder Bag so I was familiar with the construction and functionality of their products. The Legion 65 does not disappoint in that regard. I use the bag to carry the following; Nikon D7100 with the Nikon 80-400 mm VR zoom lens attached, including the lens hood reverse-mounted on the lens body. I stand this up vertically in the center of the bag. Tamron 24-70 mm lens, with the lens hood reverse-mounted on the lens body, Filters in a case for the Tamron lens, Ditty bag with lens cleaning clothes, solutions, dust blowers, etc., Bushnell 10x42 binoculars and shoulder harness. The front pockets easily accommodate extra batteries, SD cards, shutter release, lens caps, etc. The notebook sleeve holds my 4th generation iPad in a neoprene sleeve. Gross weight is approximately 16 lbs. I'm 6'3 and like to carry the bag like a sling bag, hanging across my chest, rather than off my shoulder like a woman would carry her purse so find that the shoulder strap provided enough adjustment for me to carry it comfortably riding on my hip. The coolest feature for me is the zipper in the flap. I originally didn't think I would use it, but now find I really like it because I can unzip it and reach into the bag, without having to undo the hasp securing the flap, and quickly and easily remove my camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great bag - Room for lots and lots of gear I have wanted a bag that I can take with me on business travel that will also fit my camera gear. I have tried a few different ones - but with this bag - I think I have found my match! The bag is really nice and can fit my laptop, cables, accessories and all my travel photography gear. I also have used it for shooting when I need my long zoom (which is around a foot tall). It works really well for that. It is a big bag to be sure, but if you want to carry a lot of gear, this is what you need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bag! I just used this bag on my first trip with my laptop and my DSLR. I love the bag and think it is fantastic. It holds a ton of gear for sure. The feature I love the most is the zipper across the top to make it easy to remove the camera. This will be my go to bag when traveling on business.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is a good bag, but not quite right for my needs I have a smaller Ruggard shoulder bag that works perfectly with my A6000 and 3 smaller lenses.� �I was hoping for the� same success here, but sadly, it isn't quite what I need.� � The bag construction is great and the quality of materials is fine too.� � I found the bag is too tight to fit a Canon 6D with a grip and 4 lenses (largest being the Sigma 20 Art).� �I am not returning it because it is still much better than my larger backpack, however, I will continue looking for my ideal bag.
