    I recently learned about this manufacturer during my quest for an everyday, multipurpose bag, and thought I'd share my discovery.

    I ended up purchasing this messenger bag to fit my M43 photo kit (E-M5 II + assortment of primes and zooms) along with my 15" MB Pro for an upcoming trip: http://www.vanquest.com/products/skitch-15-messenger-bag.html

    They make a smaller version for 13" notebooks as well as a plethora of accessories, such as a removable padded insert, perfect for photo gear (http://www.vanquest.com/products/drop-in-organizer-for-envoy-messenger-bag.html)

    Although I'm a big fan of "tactical" bags and such, what I really liked about this bag is that it doesn't scream that look in your face. It's much more subtle and could easily pass as a run of the mill messenger bag. Plus it doesn't obviously look like a bulky camera bag either. The apparent durability, number of pockets, features, configuration options, size, weight and accessories are what sold me. I especially like the top zipper option that allows access into the main compartment without having to open the main flap like you need to do with most traditional messenger bags. It even has strap options for effective use while biking or hiking.

    Rather than me trying to explain the details, here are some great YouTube videos that helped seal the deal for me:




    While I'm not specifically the tactical, EDC (every day carry) demographic they're targeting (pun intended) their marketing towards, I think this bag Should fit my style and needs for my own "tactical photo shooting" adventures.

    Stay tuned...
