The Think Tank CityWalker 10 Messenger Bag (Black) is a soft, padded multi-functional bag that holds your DSLR with 24-70mm f/2.8 attached, extra lens, flash plus a dedicated iPad/tablet compartment. The bag contains a removable padded insert that, when removed, transforms the bag into one large storage space-messenger style. This double-edged approach to a camera bag gives you the freedom to carry camera gear and when the insert is removed, there is room for other items such as books or personals.
The bag is accessed by a double security front snap buckle or touch fasteners that feature Think Tank's Sound Silencers to minimize the noise that traditional touch fasteners generate when opened. This will come in handy when you are shooting in quiet venues such as a chess match or courtroom. The front zippered organizer pocket holds everything from cleaning cloth to pens, note pad, lens cap and other small items. The front pocket is expandable via an easy to use touch fastener.
The overall material is water-resistant and soft providing a body conforming design that makes navigating through crowds and subways much easier. A combination of nylon, polyester, polyurethane and YKK zippers provide strength to the bag. Movable closed-cell interior dividers allow you to configure the bag to suit your gear needs.
The CityWalker is carried by its cushioned, adjustable, non-slip shoulder strap or convenient top grab handle. The bag comes with a seam sealed rain cover that will protect the entire bag when the weather turns against you. Topping off this bag is a business card slot located under the front flap. This will make networking easier when you need to hand your card to someone while on the go.

I wanted an easy-access bag for my large mirrorless system including an external flash and an extra lens or two, plus filters, batteries, etc. This fills the bill perfectly. It reminds me of the original Domke bag - small and soft, easy to carry. It does suffer from the same problem, however, of allowing foreign objects to get under the flap at the ends. This is fine for urban work, but problematic for dirty or sandy environments. Just a work of caution - I would still buy the bag again for the purpose I intended to use it. What I like best is the wide opening compared to bags that have zippers down the center, making it difficult to get a lens/body combination in and out without using two hands.
