You can read his impressions on his blog–freshly updated today with some nice shots of how he customizes his gear.

Thanks for the nice review, Brian.

    I am looking forward to seeing one of these in the flesh.

    I have a Classified 160 which I really like and this may be another option with a more casual look, useful in certain locations.

    My biggest concern is the fact that you cannot secure it against dust or light fingers.

      Hi Marcus,

      The Classified 160 AW is a handsome and discreet bag–glad you like yours. But when you do get a chance to see our new Pro Messenger AW series in person, take a look at the flap design. The full-length outer flap comes unfolded for an “ultra secure” mode. The hook/loop fasteners are quite substantial and help secure the bag while you’re on the move. It makes a pretty loud sound when unfastened–a deterrent for light fingers, we hope (you can fold the fasteners for fast-access mode when the situation calls for it).

      As with our Magnum AW bags, the Pro Messenger AW is lined with a ribbed microfiber. This helps protect your camera bodies and lenses from dust and scratches. Hope that helps. And we hope that you get to try out a Pro Messenger AW soon.
