Jim, your granddaughter is adorable. That shot is priceless.

Does anyone use the Lowepro Pro Messenger bags? I'm thinking about the 180 or the 200. I have backpacks, and find them useful for hauling a ton of gear to a destination, but they are not very practical when you get there. My main bag is a Lowepro Stealth Reporter 400AW. That's a bit more practical to use onsite than a backpack, but it's really boxy/bulky. Tough to carry over a shoulder.

I think the messenger bags would be ideal. I want to carry at least a gripped body with a 70-200 mounted, a 24-105, a flash, an iPad, and maybe a spare body with no lens. Room for a wider zoom or prime would be nice. I think carrying all this over a shoulder would be painful, but most of the time I'd be carrying one body/lens in my hand, and the bag would be used to conveniently carry the rest.

I played with the 200 last weekend. It would easily fit what I want, but it is big. Hoping I can get away with the 180. Will be trying to pack my gear into each this weekend.

I looked at the similar Think Tanks, and I don't like them.

Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated.

Mark

I sure do miss this. Had it for 8 years, sold it about 10 years ago.

Great video of what happens when your intake scoop fails and blows up the induction system on your race Sea Fury.

You could look at Timbuk2 bags. They do a camera insert for their messenger bags, which come in all sorts of colors and you can customize them. They don't look like camera bags and you can get quite a lot of stuff into the big ones, and they have plenty of room for iPads/computers. They come in three sizes (there's a smaller one but no insert for that one).

Or , I use a Thinktank Retrospective 7 on a daily basis for my general stuff and micro 4/3 system. They make those bigger, too. It is not a messanger bag, but is a shoulder bag. They have nice pockets in the back for iPads etc. Again, they don't look like camera bags which is good in my book.
