    I decided to get a messenger type bag for my m43 travel kit
    I am looking for a bag that can hold
    OMD
    12-35 Lens
    35-100 Lens
    100-300 Lens
    17mm Lens
    iPad
    (Thin) Netbook in order of size preference: 15.6” or 11” or 13”

    So far I’ve found video review of these 2 from Lowepro and was
    wondering if there is anything else I should consider

    I have the Lowepro Event Messenger 150 and I can fit all my kit and an IPad snugly. I really like it and find that it's just the right size fore me.

    I am using a Timbuk2 Snoop. Since I also shoot large format I have the medium bag. The snoop allows me to pack up to 10 5x7 film holders, 2 large format lenses, dark cloth, my OMD and 3 lenses for the OMD. A small Snoop should be big enough for your needs and more.

    I have the small Snoop. My 15.6" Lenovo laptop from work would not fit in the small Snoop but an iPad will slide in with ease.

    Can you fit a 11,6" laptop or for that it's better the 250 ?

    I have a Tenba Messenger that will hold that gear.

    I have this one, a no name bag from ebay.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Waterproof-DSLR-Camera-Bag-Cover-Canvas-Shoulder-Messenger-Bag-14-Laptop-Case-/171131022820?pt=US_Camera_Cases_Bags&hash=item27d8342de4

    It is perfect for the amount of equipment you have. It has a padded compartment for the laptop, the bag is padded all over and aditionally it comes with a padded insert. I can fit my D80 with a lens attached together with another shortish lens in the insert, and one lens on each side outside of the insert (no problem because the bag is padded also). The price is good, the quality is very good and there are lots more pockets for small stuff. Additionally it does not look like a camera bag at all.
