The DNA 8 Messenger Bag will fit a mirrorless or rangefinder camera with 2-3 lenses, plus an iPad Mini or similar tablet up to 8 inches (20 cm). It was built for seamless transitions between photojournalism and sports photography, urban exploration and adventure travel, and every conceivable kind of social event, with or without a camera. If there was ever "one bag to rule them all," this is it. The DNA Messenger is often imitated, never duplicated, and always ready for work. This is the Special Edition of the DNA Messenger Bag, which features a super water-repellant TPU-coated exterior fabric, stiffer Fidlock magnetic clips, and a blue interior in the removable padded camera insert.
