Have a big backpack for storage/trips home. Now I need something smaller take to my kids events. Since flashes and all that other fun stuff is dead weight at that point I just need my 5d iii with its 70-200m f4 IS attached and a 24-70 2.8. But I have never owned any of the messenger bags before so i don't even know where to start.

Companies like Thinktank and Lowepro have ranges of shoulder bags, of all slightly different dimensions, that will suit your purpose. The major limitation for what you are looking for will be the requirement to carry the 70-200 mounted - that means a significantly larger bag than having the standard zoom mounted and the 70-200 bare.

If you can, go into a camera store with the gear and try out some bags. You will very quickly get an idea about the size of bag that you need, and whether a shoulder bag will work for you. Comparing different bags from different manufacturers will be much simpler once you have done that basic inspection and know the dimensions that you need.


Cheers, Damien

The Think Tank Retro 20 is designed for what you describe, and (best of all) no more. It is as compact as a messenger bag can be with this items. My 70-200 2.8 IS2 fits mounted to the gripped 5d3 with hood reversed, along with a 24-70 and a couple of speedlites and basic accessories.

I had a thinktank UD shoulder bag before, but I carrying a body + 2470 + 70200 is much for my shoulder, so I switched to a small lowepro flipside backpack.

I ended up with a Lowepro Toploader 75 (that I got used at FM) with a Lowepro lens case (from amazon) strapped to it.

Plenty of room to drop the 5diii with attached 70-200 (hood reversed when I even bring it) and the Tamron 24-70 vc on the front (with hood in shooting position). Also room for the flash, xt32 trigger, memory cards and all a bunch more small stuff.

Really enjoy it for little trips out.

Thanks folks for all the input.

Even though you purchased the Lowepro TopLoader, I was going to suggest maybe look into the Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag - http://www.1kindphotog​raphy.com ...eryday-messenger-bag.html (external link)

You can either use it to store your camera gear for kids event or haul other stuff if you're not taking pictures such as extra clothes, snacks, etc.

I felt the Retro 20 was a bit heavy. I have the CityWalker and its the same as the Retro in terms of messenger style but lighter and thinner material.
