This is one sleek looking camera bag. The BLCKCHRM NIKO MESSENGER LTD enhanced fabric surely makes this camera bag look cool and hip. Did I mention that it’s in black. I am also a big fan of the quick release buckle to allow for rapid removal of the bag. The internal dividers are of another enhanced fabric with an orange color. The dividers are rigid that appears strong enough to firmly keep all your gear in place.


I first put the BLCKCHRM Niko Messenger LTD at a beach photoshoot and the camera bag performed well. I was able to easily remove the bag when not needed. For the beach shoot, the only camera/lens combination required was a telephoto. Therefore, I had to remove all of the orange internal dividers and to my pleasant surprise, the camera and telephoto lens fit in the BLCKCHRM Niko messenger LTD.
The camera bag also held its own when splashed with sand. The sand easily bounced off the bag’s unique fabric.  The sling was also comfortable during extended use thanks to the well designed strap.


A FEW OF THE FEATURES I FOUND MOST USEFUL FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: (view a full listing at the manufacturer website

  • Quick release buckle for easy bag removal
  • Top loading compartment for easy to access items
  • Sleek material


Similar to other Chrome camera bags, the BLCKCHRM Niko Camera Messenger doesn’t look like a typical camera bag. This fact is perfect for photographers that like to keep their photography on the down low in public. Not only is something good to look at you should also be comforted that this bag is functional and comfortable to use. If discretion is needed for my telephoto, the BLCKHRM Niko Camera Messenger is my go bag.
