Lowepro Event Messenger bags

I have been looking at one of these to compliment my increasing collection of camera bags, although I haven't actually bought a new one in over two years (shock, horror!). Anyway, what attracts me to this range, particularely the larger ones is the inside area for tablet storage (no not pills!). As I will be taking my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with me when we holiday in the States in May, the Event Messenger range would be better than any of the bags I currently have.
My question is, does anyone here use these bags and what is your opinion of them in terms of convenience for a tablet and the ability to take an Oly body (4/3) plus two or possible three lenses and other stuff?

Re: Lowepro Event Messenger bags

It seems very much like my Passport sling in terms of the interior pocket design. If that is anything to go by its an excellent bag (currently being used daily as my work bag over everything else I use) and well constructed.

This looks like something that I would buy, doesn't look like a camera bag but has nice features.

I found this review quite good after a quick search http://www.thephoblographer.com/2012...messenger-150/

EDIT: I treated the sling with some standard waterproofing spray on the outside, it hasn't discoloured and still beads the water off well keeping everything inside dry
