Does anyone have photos of their Lowepro Pro Messenger 180 loaded? I know how Lowepro shows a "packed" bag, but a really curious if I can really get a body (7D or 5D), 24-105, 70-200 f2.8 with hoods, and a 580EX II in its pouch inside the main compartment (or similar equipment complement).

Would appreciate seeing and hearing comments on this style Messenger Bag.

Thanks

I fit a 5d III, 70-200 f2.8 with hood, 50mm f1.4 with hood, 17-40mm without hood, and a 600EX in its pouch all in the main compartment. Subbing the 50mm and the 17-40mm for your 24-105mm should net you even more space.

Thanks - I looked at this bag and the Think Tank Retro. The dividers in the Think Tank seemed stiffer and harder to work with when trying to get the bag to conform.

Didn't have the opportunity to put gear into the store versions; so first hand knowledge is appreciated.

Can you really get the 5D with the 70-200 attached in with the flap down?

Ever have anyone try to open the bag from behind without you knowing - there is no clasp or zipper, right?

Yes.

You have the option, as with all of LowePro's messengers, to cover the velcro for silent running and using the magentic clasps. It would be easy for someone to open if all you had was the magnetic clasps, but with the velcro no one is doing a thing without you knowing.

No one has ever tried to get into any of my bags, but that doesn't matter. It happens. Best defense is to always be on guard and hang your bag to the front when going without the velcro in crowds.
