Tamrac 469 Photo Messenger 9 User Reviews
Great for travel with one bag
“I used to travel with two bags, one for my computer and business materials, another for my camera. This bag allows me to carry everything together. When I arrive at my destination, I leave the laptop in the hotel safe and use this bag for shooting. It isn’t the best shoulder bag, as it can be a little awkward to get things out. It is a decent compromise and is less conspicuous than a typical shoulder bag or comparable backpack. I carry a D300, 12-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, flash, filters, and hoods. Once the camera and a lens are out of the bag, it isn’t that heavy.” – By stinky-tofu
