Specs and Materials for The 15" Everyday Messenger

Photography Gear Capacity:

First off, this video shows our head designer Art Viger packing and re-packing The Everyday Messenger with a variety of photography kits. Press play below to watch—the video starts at 14:13 and Art waxes eloquent for a solid 5 minutes: 

If you don't want to watch the whole video, here's the jist:

  • The Everyday Messenger can simultaneously carry a full-frame DSLR, 3 lenses, 13-15 inch laptop and tablet, with pockets and space for additional accessories like batteries, cards, a flash, a battery grip, filters and more. This is it's max capacity, and it'll be pretty darn heavy if you load it up this much. Keep that in mind.
  • You can create space for 2 additional lenses or other items by attaching your camera to the outside of the bag using a Capture clip 
  • Got two camera bodies? The Everyday Messenger can comfortably fit two bodies with professional glass and a 3rd lens. 
  • Got a mirrorless setup? The Everyday Messenger is perfectly equipped to handle your camera body and 3 lenses, maybe more, depending on lens size.
