So, I just bought a Chrome Citizen messenger bag for commuting to work/class. I've been looking for an easier way to carry around my 40d/17-55 2.8, and I was hoping someone could help me out.

I've started looking at Domke stuff, but I'm not really sure where to begin. I'm trying to avoid any that are "velco-in", and a search doesn't really leave me with specific-enough answers. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I'm not certain I understand what you are asking. You just got a chrome bag, and you want something else for your camera?

Oops, sorry I wasn't clear. I want some inserts for the bag, that I can trust are keeping my body and lens safe. For the lens I'm looking at this: http://www.tiffen.com …ame=domke&itemn​um=710-503 (external link)

I just need to find something for the body.

I have started using the Kata 30 3n1. It carries a camera, a laptop and some book like items. A good all around. I have bike messenger bag and found the 3n1 better for my needs. Otherwise look for some Domke inserts to make compartments in your chrome bag. Hope this helps

I dont know how much extra bulk you can handle, I have a couple of the toploader/holster style bags that handle a body with short lens attached, but they are a bit on the bulky side, but they have the advantage being a fully functioning bag on their own.

If you just want cushioning this might be the thing

I bought one of these to stick in my Timbuk2 messenger. It works great and will easily carry your 40D with 17-55 attached. Even with this insert in the bag, there is still lots of extra room to carry other stuff (jacket, lunch, books etc.).

I wouldn't use the neoprene things linked above because I want to be able to simply reach into the bag and grab the camera, ready to shoot. I don't want to have to first unwrap the camera from the neoprene before using the camera, but that's me.

like mentioned above me, just get some cushioning for the body. sure the chrome bag can take more but it's really not necessary IMHO.


40d + 50mm f1.8 MK I + my feet.

Good looking out Stax. That looks like exactly what I need. I hope it comes in another color though.

I have a chrome bag too. I use the tenba insert. It does get bulky but it works. It doesn't completely fill the bag though

I saw this and got it to fit inside a Mountainsmith lumbar pack I have.

Fits my gripped 40d and 24-70 with hood reversed. Your kit should fit easily.
