Messenger Camera bag

Hey all. Does anyone happen to have either of these bags or any first hand experience with them?

Timbuk2 Snoop or possibly a customized one


LowePro Classified 250 AW


The wife and I will be going to Europe later this year for 2.5 weeks and I'm looking for something that can comfortably carry a Nikon D40x DSLR, 2 lenses, maybe a flash, a small stand and my iPad along with other small items you would carry during the day.

Also anyone want to make any lens recommendations? I currently just have the 2 standard lenses(18mm-55 and 55mm-200) that came with my DSLR body. Thinking a wide angle would be nice. I wouldn't want to spend a crazy amount and used would be alright with me.

Thanks!

hey man... both are great brands. Unfortunately, I have no experience with those specific bags, but I have two Lowepro camera bags and they are awesome. Also, I just bought my second Timbuk2 bag for my new laptop and they work great.

I think both companies have a good return policy, so you can always buy them and try it out. You might find the Lowepro Classified 250 AW at Dodd Camera, so you can always play with it if they have it.

Crumpler is a good option also.

Fan of the Think Tank UD and have two. They also have a messenger style and I think it is "retrospective"?

I have 4 Lowepro bags, which have been used and abused for the past 10 years and I've never had any problems. Well designed, good quality and very durable.

It is Retrospective, I like TT because of all the pockets for my useless crap Ashu and the cats like to sit on them because they are black.
