When I ordered mine, I emailed Gravity Trading (GT) what the difference was between the messenger bags in Amazon and their website. The gist of the message was IF the description does NOT say "Rapid" then it will NOT have the MAIN zippered compartment. Their website did not have the Rapid name, so I ordered from Amazon through GT and it had the zippered main compartment.

Of course, this was BEFORE they came out with the GT branded bag (which has the zippered main compartment as previous posts indicates) and raised the prices! :shock:

So order from GT seller (Rapid or GT brand is ok) but from Amazon (no guarantees from their own website). ;)

I just received my Rapid version of this bag. I don't have an insert yet so I haven't sized everything but I do want to say I'm impressed with the material, color, zippers, lining, etc of this bag. Great value.

I ordered direct from Gravity Trading's website - there are two versions - search for "classic heavyweight messenger" and order the one with "mb" in the part name for the zipper version. The other one, a couple $ less, doesn't have "mb" and I'm guessing it's the non-zippered, non-lining version. There's also now a GT version as mentioned. Took 7 days for ground delivery to FL.

If you're looking for something different, here's a bag with a zipper opening, and lots of mounting points to add additional options.

Great combo! I did get the bpp paddy but it looks like everybody is out of the R31 in black. I went ahead and got this bag instead, Rick Steves autoboahn messenger bag (external link). It's a bit bigger than than the R31. I still intend to get a black R31 since it's a nicer form factor for walking around, but I think the Rick Steves bag I got is nicer for traveling (airplane carry-on) since it has a dedicated laptop pocket.

this is where I just ordered last week. Even with the expensive shipping, ordering direct from GT and ordering the padding from the other place (free shipping) was cheaper than from Amazon.

Going to order 2 more bags tonight.

Does anyone know where to get the BBP camera paddy apart from directly from BBP or through their amazon page?

The reason I ask is they want to charge me $44 shipping to the UK on a $23 item

Another idea for an insert is the Tenba messenger insert. I bought a Tenba messenger bag but returned it because it seemed too big, but I liked the insert. I found that B&H sells the insert for $20 shipped, and got a green Domke F-802 satchel similar to the OP (sadly, I paid about 2x). Works great and I can walk around semi-discreetly.

I was looking for a stealth bag for lugging my gear around and for when doing street photography. I'm glad I found this thread. I didn't want a bag that looked like a camera bag. This fits the bill. Really didn't want to pay $130-$150 for what was essentially a simple bag and an insert. Just bought the bag and insert today for $67 shipped. I don't mind saving 50%. Best of all, I can just take the insert out and use it as a regular bag if I needed.

I got the paddy direct... don't know how some people got free shipping, 'cuz it sure wasn't free for me :(
I'm also kind of disappointed that no one has the bag in black anymore. I'm really not a fan of "olive".
Waiting really wasn't an option, (road trip to a daughter's graduation coming up fast)
so I ordered a messenger bag from Amazon
http://www.amazon.com …ZA7K/ref=ox_ya_​os_product (external link)
I had a feeling it would be too narrow and it was...
But I'll just keep as a laptop bag, rather than hassle with returning it.

So, here I was bagless when I looked at Target and saw a Embark messenger bag for $15!
It's just thin nylon, but the paddy fits perfectly. It is medium gray with an orangeish yellow trim, that is much the same color as the paddy. It has a padded laptop section in the back.

It was cheap... at least I'll have something while I'm waiting for the black gravity trade bag to get back in stock...and who knows? maybe I'll decide it's good enough. :)

Anyone recomend a camera insert that would hold a Canon T2i w/ grip and attached Tamron 70-300?
From back of body to lens front is about 8.5"

Yeah.... this same set.

I have my gripped t2i with Canon 70-300 attached. It sits slighlty higher than the paddy but with bag zipped it is no issue at all. Is the tamron a little shorter lens than the Canon version? I think it is.

the GT bag is about 14 1/2" WIDE. 10" high and 5" deep.

this bag works great, but now that i have it i'm thinking about selling my GT/paddy stealth bag aka THE ADAM STEALTH.:D it just wont fit my Gripped 60D w/ 17-55mm 2.8 it will with the lens off but most of the time i just want to grab the camera with the lens out of the bag.:(
