    Free Bag Friday Winner! Congratulations to Jacob Macias who wrote: “[I need the] Passport Messenger because I’m busting at the seems at my old Lowepro bag; I don’t have room for my reflector.” Now Jacob, you will have room. Thanks to everyone who participated on the blog, Twitter, and Instagram. We’ll do it again soon.

    Really nice bag. I need a tinier bag on my “mini” photo trips locally in my town. Don’t need to carry everything, and don’t want to carry my giant Lowepro Fastpack. 🙂
