Ins and Outs of the New Pro Messenger 200 AW Bag

By October 27, 2011Stories

For a bag that looks so comfortable and blends in with the urban environment, the new Lowepro Pro Messenger 200 AW includes a lot of features. I’ve created two short movies that will help you decide if this “high-tech-retro” bag is for you.

First, here’s an overview that shows the basic features.

Now, since I shoot often with the 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom on camera body, I thought you might like to see an alternative way to pack the 200 AW. In this case, I use one of the dividers to create a false bottom. In all honesty, this is just one of the numerous ways you can configure this bag.

There are two other models in the Pro Messenger family. You can learn about the entire line up by visiting, or by stopping by the Lowepro booth at PhotoPlus Expo.

    Hi there Derek, I was just wandering what is the largest type of laptop that would be able to fit into the back compartment.

    Thank you very much
