The Discrete Pro Messenger 200 AW Camera Bag

By October 16, 2012Design Room, Products

Aside from how wonderful the material feels, my favorite feature of the Pro Messenger 200 AW is its discrete looks (and sounds). When I’m working in the city with the Messenger riding my hip, it looks like a stylish multifunctional bag. Once I get to my assignment, I can switch from “security mode” to “silent mode” and open the top flap without drawing the attention of those around me.

Inside it can transport a pro DSLR with grip and attached zoom lens, plus two extra lenses and a flash in main compartment — or a pro DSLR with grip and attached 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lens (facing sideways), plus a flash in main compartment. The front pouch is roomy enough to stow not one, but two DSLR bodies without lens attached (or the new Canon 40mm pancake).

When I arrive for a job, I like to make a good first impression. The Pro Messenger 200 AW certainly makes the statement I want.
