So, I get to choose a Snoop for my birthday. Specifically, my girlfriend wants to get me a custom Classic Messenger (we try and bike as much as possible, so the TT Retro 30 doesn't get much use outside of walking in/around LA). What size should I be getting?

I rather only want body+lens w/ one lens + flash. And I rather want it to be a tight fit. I was thinking a Small would be good for this.

Particularly, would a Small Snoop fit a 70-200 of any size vertically and unmounted to the camera?

i had the medium and it fit a 5d with 70-200 (hood reversed) vertically just fine.
but if you just want body/2 lens/ flash, the small would probably be fine.
not sure if the small fits the 70-200 attached though... never tried.

Thanks. Small it is. I'm fairly sure that I won't need it to fit inside vertically with the camera attached. It would be convenient, but it's not strictly necessary. I guess I'd also be able to lay it horizontally if I really needed it to.

Thanks for the input! :D

Dunno if it's too late, but I have both the small and medium Snoop inserts and can take pictures with some equipment for comparison.

That would still be nice and helpful! Thanks!

I know you've already chosen, but I just want to put in another vote for Small.

It is MY perfect bag for a light setup around town. Plus, it is stylish, too!

The Small will fit a 70-200 unmounted. I usually carry my 5D2+lens, another lens, and wallet, keys, etc.

Here are some comparison shots. Sorry for the quality; in order to show a comparison with a larger gripped camera, I had to use another camera.

Here are the bags with a Nikon D300 w/ grip and a 70-200 2.8.

Small insert:

Different view; you can get a better sense of the size difference here:

And last, the bags inside their respective messenger bags (I have the 2011 D-Lux Racing Stripe in small and the 2012 D-Lux Racing Stripe in Medium)

For your purposes, I think a small will be fine. It will fit a D300 w/out grip with a 16-85mm attached, a flash, the 70-200, a 50mm or a 30mm.

In my medium I fit a D300 w/ grip with an attached 16-85mm, a flash, the 70-200, 30mm, 50mm, and a 10-20mm.

Here's the small loaded the way I described:
