Summary: This is great for me - I have a dSLR and two lenses, plus a few accessories. Add a lens and you'll need a bigger bag. So much more convenient than the bag my camera came with. It's slim and I can walk down the aisle of an airplane and not have to turn sideways anymore. Lots of padding too. Would definitely recommend.
Summary: I just got my bag in the mail today & loaded my gear into it a few minutes ago! As far as I can tell, I'm going to love this bag. I bought it primarily for a trip to California we'll be making next month, we'll be doing some sightseeing & I needed a better way to fly & then drag my DSLR all over the place than the big bulky "Canon" bag I got with the "starter kit".
Summary: This bag is a great size for me. I have a D50, with an extra lens and a few accessories. Everything fits well, and the organizer system inside the bag keeps everything in it's own little compartment. The bag looks good overall, more of a business casual. Not too formal, but not loud and obnoxious. The one "complaint" I have, is that I wish the top of the bag had a little more padding. The rest of the bag is nice and thick, and the top flap, is a bit thinner.
Summary: This bag is nice. Its a little smaller than I thought. It holds everything I need to carry when shooting as long as I plan to only take what I need. If you have a lot of zoom lenses they may not all fit properly. All in all this is a good bag. Next time I buy a bag I will most likely upgrade to a bigger bag.
Summary: I a new Nikon D5000 and needed a camera bag for it. After a lot of looking and research, I settled on the Tamrac Adventure Messenger 4 DSLR Camera Bag (Red/Black). It is a BIG bag, so if you are looking for something little this is not it :D. I really like all the little Velcro movable walls to customize the compartments.
Summary: I had a Tamrac bag for many years that I loved and needed to replace. This was the closet to my old bag, but after buying it I returned it. Several reasons. First and most important, the inside is poorly designed because the top velcro strips are too high on the inside of the bag. This forces the camera to sit up too high. Second, the dividers themselves do not allow enough flexibility.
Summary: Very nice bag, but if you have a larger DSLR (Canon 50D) or similar, you will want to buy a larger bag if you want room for extra lenses, etc. I still like this bag for short shooting trips, without a lot of extras along, one lens plus necessities. Other than that, it is a very high quality product.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I've use this bag for my entry level SLR, and it fits the SLR, lens, battery packs and instruction booklets with plenty of room to spare. I could probably fit another tele-lens in here if I had one. I was disappointed that my JOBY Gorilla Pod doesn't fit very well, but I was able to fit it diagonally in one of the pockets.

Summary: The reason that I bought this particular bag was because I wanted something different than your usual camera bag. Usually, you can buy some generic bag from the store, or you can get a slightly upgraded version from the manufacturer. But this bag is different. It isn't your typical Camera bag with multiple small and useless compartments that wont help you do anything.
Summary: I was looking for a lighter weight bag for days I don't want to carry my entire backpack. I first purchased the Lowepro Nova 170AW, and while the features and size were great, I couldn't help but feel like I had an insulated lunch cooler around my shoulder. The Tamrac looks inconspicous and is a great size for comfortably carrying my big Canon 50D with lens on, a couple of additional lenses, flash, filters, etc.
