  • 1Description

Designed to look like a regular briefcase, the black Legion 75 Messenger Bag from Ruggard provides space for a DSLR with a battery grip, three zoom lenses, two flashes, and a 15" laptop. Select 17" laptops without a wide bezel bordering the screen will fit in as well. 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. For storing your photo gear, the bag comes with an internal basket, which can be removed from the main compartment. After removing the internal basket, the Legion can be used as an everyday messenger bag. 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 75 reviews

    Legion 75 Messenger Bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than I expected! When I bought my Nikon D810 from B&H it came with a smaller Ruggard camera bag. The quality was very rugged and very well built. I needed more room for all my accessories plus extra lenses so I searched for a messenger bag. Looked at many different brands nothing was appealing for the absorbent prices. Decided check out the Ruggard Legion 75 and trusted it would be as well built as my smaller Ruggard bag. All I can is this messenger bag is far better than I expected. Plenty of pockets for everything. The rain cover is a very nice add and this messenger bag is tough enough for hard core travel. Very satisfied!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Backpack Alternative. First and foremost, this bag is big, but not so big that you can load it down to the point where it becomes too heavy. It is far easier to carry fully loaded than a similar sized backpack. Pros: For me, it is just the right size to carry around on a daily basis, so that I can capture those unplanned moments. I can fit a Canon 1D body, a 70-200mm, and another similar sized lens, along with a 600EX series flash. I can also fit an iPad 2, a 15 laptop, and a host of small stuff in the extra pockets. Cons: Carrying a professional grade lens mounted on a professional sized body is a little awkward, and it makes me carry two L lenses, instead of three. Oh, I could squeeze them all in, if wanted to, but it bag becomes a little lumpy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Messenger Bag This Ruggard Legion 75 messenger bag is amazing. It seems like they thought of everything. Indeed it holds a ton of items. You could have one large DSLR plus a few lenses. I keep my Nikon D600 with lens as well as a Panasonic GH4 + lens, and have another compartment for lens or various other gear. Lots of additional compartments to store all your accessories such as SD cards, hard drives, tablet, laptop, chargers, batteries. It fits so much that I use this as my main carryon for air travel and fit other things like snacks. The shoulder strap is comfortable and fine for carrying a long time. Construction is impressive. I bought this December of 2014 and it still looks almost new, and shows no sign of any tearing, zipper breaking, or seams breaking. It's very solid. I couldn't think of anything else I would want in a messenger bag. It's not a backpack, so if you want two straps that go around both arms, look at backpacks, not messenger bags. This bag has traveled around the world with me and done so without any problems, sometimes carrying a lot of weight, yet holding together just fine. Love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag Received the bag and quickly moved all of my photo equipment in. Holds both my Nikon D5500, Olympus PN-1 and lenses plus my laptop. It gets heavy, but that all depends on the equipment you want to carry. Very satisfied with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant design This is a great bag for travel. It can be slipped over the handle of a suitcase on wheels or carried over the shoulder like a messenger bag. The internal design is excellent and roomy. Good for a 15 inch laptop as well as a few pieces of camera equipment. Also has a built in raincoat, which I suspect I won't need because the inner compartment is well protected. Very impressive design for a remarkably low price.
