i am looking at getting a messenger bag and thinking of the 200

Have two bodies 40D, 7D and 24-70 and 70-200 2.8 and would like to be fit a laptop in as well, I know the 250 will but I think it is that little bit too bulky, hence considering the 200.

I have also looked at the Tenba messenger which size wise is perfect but I do not like the lack of weather sealing and no zips to stop the dust getting it.

Or is there another bag out there I have overlooked

Thanks

That's quite a heavy load for a shoulder bag, have you considered backpacks

I have but in two minds, I already have a lowepro primus which I like but does not take laptop.

The advantage of a messenger bag is it is easier to take to work with laptop and bring my camera along, looks a bit smarter than a backpack and easier in crowded spaces like the underground

I have the Classified 200AW. It will fit the camera gear you mentioned, but not the laptop. There is no provision for something of that size in the bag. You should get the 250 if you need to carry a laptop.

Have you had a look on camerapricebuster? Listed the Classified 250 as being £58.46 at Jessops at the min, that's some discount.

Wow it is £65 on Jessops website and the 200 os £109 does not make sense but never the less a very good price:confused::confused:

I will have to get to Jessops and have another look at it in the flesh as that might be too good to turn down. Thanks for the heads up Mark

No worries Adrian, thought that price might make it appear a little less bulky haha.

I have a Classified 200AW, and have managed to fit my MacBook Air 11" into the pocket at the back. It would struggle with a bigger laptop, but could hold a smaller netbook.

Have you looked at ThinkTank Photo bags? I've just got a Sling-O-Matic 30, and it's outstanding. Try the urban disguise series.
