Great Bag, Small Issues

Excerpt: I WANTED a small bag, mainly to store by camera body (700D) or hold an extra lens. This bag fits my needs perfectly. I use one divider on the inside and can store my body on its side, a medium sized lens (usually the Sigma 50mm f/1.4), and either a pancake lens or extension tube on top of the lens. Or, I can hold two lenses and a pancake lens/extension tube and never put the camera in the bag. The back has a pouch that is great for grabbing microfibers or filters.
Excerpt: As others have noted this is a small bag. I have a T3 with a 18-55 lens and it fits fine. Currently I have one divider in the main compartment which leaves just enough room for the battery charger. It is about the size of a pack of cigarettes (a flash would fit nicely here instead). I can fit the camera lens down and still have enough room for a 50-250 lens next to the camera, but it is a really tight and I don't recommend this.
Excerpt: The bag hasa nice design and I like the optional beige color. It will proba;bly look cleaner and reduce the heat inside in sunny days. The internal space is good for DSLR with a superzoom bt little else. A kit zoom will allows you to include a flash. A DSLR with a battery grip will probably won't fit since the bag is slim.
Excerpt: After lugging a backpack full of gear and only using some of it I decided it was time to trim down the load. With the Lowepro Event Messenger 100 I can carry two lenses and some accessories, like my radio trigger, cleaning supplies, note pad, bubble level and lens hoods. The Messenger is convenient, light weight and offers easy access while keeping my gear protected. It's a great product and I'm glad I purchased it!
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Easy access, Good Protection, Lightweight
Excerpt: I called B&H and talked to a phone rep. He thought the bag would be big enough for my needs. Fairly nice bag with nice price, just not big enough and I am not big on how the inside material of the bad (where one would use the Velcro inside compartment pieces would go)are loose and a little hard to adjust. The bottom is also soft and doesn't hold it's shape well. Great for small camera.
Cons: Inadequate Protection, Not Enough Pocket Room
Excerpt: This bag is perfect for around-town and easily holds my Olympus EM-10, 14-42 kit lens, 45mm lens, and 20mm lens, plus a set of extension tubes. I'm very pleased. I've tried a handful of small bags before that haven't quite fit the bill, but this one's a keeper.
Excerpt: Perfect for mirrorless cameras with enough space to hold a extra lens. I love the velcro or clip option for easy and fast accuses. If your looking for a bag for you SLR I would not recommend this bag because it will be a little tight.
