Combine a classic bike courier profile with Lowepro’s protective and practical design sense and you get the Exchange Messenger-a well-priced DSLR shoulder bag that offers soft-sided protection with modern appeal. Three deep pockets (one with a zipper) store accessories, a wallet, cell phone or other essentials. The roomy main compartment is lined in contrasting fabric to easily see gear. There’s plenty of room inside for today’s most popular DSLR models (placed horizontally), plus an extra lens or flash, in addition to personal gear. The two padded, adjustable dividers let you customize the interior to create the perfect fit for your camera kit and extras.

Alot of reviewers have complained about the padding in this bag. The negative reviews made me a bit nervous but I went ahead and purchased this bag regardless. After opening it and playing around with the adjustable pads inside I found nothing to complain about. This is a perfect bag for a novice/amateur photographer. This bag is lightweight, stylish, small, discreet, able to hold personal items.....basically everything I wanted in a bag. This bag will be perfect for me as I travel around Europe for the next couple of years. This is not a DSLR backpack with lots of compartments and loads of padding. I am not entirely sure what the other reviewers were expecting but this bag fits all of my needs.

Nothing drags down an outing faster than a heavy kit of camera gear. My d700 is an anchor, but it's indispensable, so I've been working on lightening up the rest my gear. Big zooms have their place, but not on casual outings, so I leave them home in favor of a few manual focus primes, and pack an sb-400 flash instead of one of my sb800s. That leaves the bag as the last target for weight reduction. I have a half dozen bags, ranging from a Lowepro Mini-trekker (too big and too heavy/padded) to a Domke f-3x (too big) to a Crumpler $6M Home (too heavy/padded). The Exchange Messenger bag caught my eye, and once I tried packing it, I was hooked. I was able to configure the interior compartment to hold the d700/lens, two additional lenses, and my flash, and load the outer pockets with my wallet, cellphone, and camera supplies. And it molded itself to my side, just like my big Domke. I wonder if all the folks complaining about lack of padding realize they can add as much as they'd like? The only drawback I found was the lack of a Velcro fastener for the front flap... but I can always add it. I won't take this bag on holiday, but I'll use it as my primary bag for local outings.

The good: compact, comfortable, fits just enough for a day of shooting, stylish

The bad: padding, padding, and less padding (doesn't offer much protection for your expensive gear)

I already own a sling style backpack so i was in the market for more of an everyday type bag. I wanted something that i could throw my D90, extra lens, and some accessories in and walk around for the day.

As far as what i was looking for this camera bag is great! It doesn't look like a regular old camera bag. This is handy when going to places like Disney with the kids. I don't like to stick out and make myself a target for theft. It's also very narrow. The width of the bag is probably the best feature. The other shoulder/messenger style bags that i tried were just too wide and bulky to comfortably carry around on my shoulder. I throw this one over my head so the strap goes across my chest and it fits great! It doesn't stick out a mile. With the others i was constantly bumping into things and people with them because they were so wide.

Now for the bad part. As others have stated, this bag is lacking in the padding department. Most of the other bags are more of a rigid construction that holds its shape even when empty and absorb a lot of the shock when bumped. This one has very thin padding so it doesn't keep it's shape which helps it to conform to your hip or back BUT it doesn't provide as much protection. When you bump something with this bag you hear the impact on your items inside. I really wish that there was a bit more padding on the outside.

So i think i will keep my eyes open for another alternative. My perfect bag would be the same dimensions as this one with the same style but MORE padding.

Before purchasing this bag, I read several reviews. It is true that there is not much padding, so I was already expecting it to be only minimally padded. Compared to just tossing my DSLR and a few lenses into my backpack carry-on and shoving it under a plane seat, the padding seemed like a luxury to my poor, abused gear.
I wanted a bag which looked like any old bag/purse/thing that a traveler or student might be carting around. I wanted something to fit my gear plus my wallet, sunglasses, and a few odds and ends. I wanted accessibility to all of it. This bag perfectly fit my needs.
The bag has 2 removable and adjustable sectionals inside, creating 3 spaces. The sectional padding is attached to the sides by velcro along the bottom and the top. I have a Canon Rebel XTi DSLR from a few years back. I have a 35-80 lens, a 10-20 lens, and a 75-300 lens. I could comfortably arrange the 3 lenses and body in the bag, with any lens attached, plus have room for extra stuff.
The way the bag hung at my side was comfortable for walking around all day in Dublin. Because of the weight, my shoulder did get sore sometimes, but that would be the case with any messenger bag. The nature of the bag being at my side made my lenses readily accessible, so i could swap out lenses constantly with ease. It was glorious.
One complaint I have is that there is no zipper or other closure besides the snap down front flap, so if the bag is somehow turned over, stuff could fall out. Also, it is more easily accessed by pick-pockets. I never did lose anything, and being that the bag hangs at my side, i was able to keep an arm over it and never got robbed.
A couple construction complaints: The snap-in closures for the flap are too flexible, so it is hard to close it w/o using two hands.
