    Because putting anything other than my camera in my current bag requires bubble wrap!

  • Sirichai Monvisarut says:

    My backpacks Flipside 400AW and Transit 350AW which bring all my gear without any tension.
    Urban Reporter will be my first shoulder bags which can carry all my gear.

  • EduardoS says:

    Looks like the perfect bag to carry around my holga 😮

  • Dustin H says:

    For me, the Urban Reporter would be a perfect bag! I have an old Nova shoulder bag that is just too small for my set up and I find myself carrying my lenses in a backpack where they aren’t well protected at all…

  • 3rdcupofcoffee says:

    I carry a laptop bag and a camera backpack to work everyday, and I would use the Urban Reporter 250 messenger bag to replace my current setup in a flash.

  • Howell says:

    This bag would be perfect to carry all my gear around with me.

  • Joseph Ty says:

    The Lowepro urban reporter 250 is my ideal bag, compared to my vanguard and jansport, this messenger type bag can handle most of my gears and more. Loved the idea of carrying a mac, dslr, couple of lens maybe an iPad to edit and shoot. This will be and ideal gear for my hobby and shooting. Go Lowepro!

  • Jon Okerstrom says:

    I’d use it as my every day walk-about camera bag. With the Urban Reporter 250 there are no more excuses… get your gear out!

  • I’m carrying a separate bag for my laptop at the moment. It’d be great to have one bag for everything.

  • Fred Hallman says:

    I’d use the bag for events and weddings!

  • girlfromwva says:

    not on twitter or instagram. I would use this bag instead of carrying 2 smaller bags around. It looks so roomy!!!

  • Eugenie says:

    This bag would be great for when I’m on a shoot around town.

  • Iosif says:

    CLASSIC! 🙂

  • Peter says:

    I’d look so cool with this bag on the weddings! 🙂

  • Matt Workman says:

    This bag would be very handy. I’ve been using the Flipside for some time but it’d be very nice to have the space for a laptop without having to carry an oversized bag.
