Our take on the Lowepro Pro Messenger 180 AW

by Woody Sherman

The tall Lowepro Pro Messenger 180 AW bag will carry your pro-level DSLR with battery grip and attached 70-200mm zoom lens in style, while keeping everything safe and easy at hand. Adjustable padded dividers can be arranged to accommodate extra lenses and flash units. The case's durable modern performance fabric is reminiscent of broken-in canvas, and the included all-weather (AW) cover keeps your working investment safe from the elements.

The heavily padded shoulder strap lends solid comfort when you're fully loaded up. And the Dual-Mode Flap allows you to configure the kit for silent access (no Velcro® closure) or maximum security (Velcro tabs engaged). Plus, a Dual-Purpose Pocket transforms from handy storage space to travel-friendly trolley sleeve, so you can slip it over your rolling suitcase's handle with a fast unzipping.

Overview: The Lowepro Pro Messenger 180 AW is a durable, but attractive shoulder bag for the on-the-go photographer. It is built to fit pro-sized camera equipment, such as a DSLR with grip and attached lens up to 70-200mm, plus two extra lenses and a flash. The innovative folding FlexFlap design allows you the security of a full flap lid with hook-and-loop fasteners when moving from place-to-place, and the convenience of a half-length flap with a magnetic closure for quick (and quiet) access to your gear. The patented All Weather AW Cover protects everything from the elements, and tucks away when not in use.
