Rated 5 out of 5 by TJ Burke from Best Camera Bag!I have had the original Load Cell model of this pack for the past 3 years and it has been the best camera bag. I cannot tell any difference between the Indie and the Load Cell, other than more cool colors. When combined with the Tenba BYOB 9 Camera Bag Insert, this pack becomes a very discrete and functional camera bag for mirrorless systems. It easily fits 3 lenses, camera body, tripod, and numerous accessories. It took a lot of research to find something that would match my needs and not let everyone know I was carrying expensive camera equipment. I hope somebody finds this helpful. It really is just another great use for a well made MR product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kutter0311 from Lightweight with very adaptable organizationBought the Indie to replace my mother's heavy and impractical leather purse. It's a comparable size with better organization than the leather bag. I showed her the pictures and color options and asked her to pick without disclosing the price or committing to the purchase, and she said she thought it looked much more comfortable to wear than her current bag, which has a very narrow shoulder strap that is unusable given the heft of the bag. When I eventually ordered, the purchase arrived in less than a week (about normal) and she was quite pleased and excited for the new bag, and really liked the color she had chosen. She moved all her stuff into the Indie with room to spare, and the wide adjustable shoulder strap is very comfortable. I may have to order one for myself soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thomas from The Perfect Possibles BagIf you’re old enough to remember what a possibles bag is then I will offer you that this is it.I have purchased two of them. The rip black one is a little slick (literally) for my taste. Coyote is the one I use most. The material is more to my liking. It is stiffer and holds onto you better when over the shoulder as a messenger bag. When used as a shoulder bag, again, no sliding around. The best features are the actual design of the bag. Two outside pockets, one on each side, one has a zipper, the other with Velcro. That pocket has two pockets inside. I use one for my iPhone 11, the other for my Field Notes. The cavernous interior has an open pocket, and a zipper pocket. This thing is easy to overload. I usually carry an iPad Mini 4, a couple of notebooks, a Zoid bag with office supplies, a water bottle or my to go coffee cup (20 oz), headphones, and a couple of other sneaky things that always seem to creep in. My grandpa helped me make a possibles bag out of deerskin when I was a youngster. It was a little deeper, a little shorter, about the same depth, but I think he would’ve liked this. I know I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Izzy from My favourite sling bagThe look of the bag undermines the amount of space and things I can fit into this bag! It fits my macbook air (2019 model) perfectly and Im able to stuff so many other things inside! The quality is superb as well and it has braved through Singapore's rainy and hot weathers with me. A great buy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Will from Nice but slightly underwhelmingSince this is my first Mystery Ranch purchase, my expectations may have been too high. This bag is definitely what you see in the photos, but there’s nothing about it that makes me say “wow” day to day. It’s a little smaller than I’d anticipated (not MR’s fault) and seems well built but not so much more than most bags that I’d normally make a note of it. As others have noted, the Velcro closure also isn’t too useful. All in all, a solid bag, but just not quite the experience I imagined from how people rave about MR. Maybe it’s just this model in particular?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary from Incredible bagI bought this bag a few weeks ago and it’s amazing! The material is perfect, the size is great for everyday use as well as when I’m traveling I find I can fit a lot of extras in very easily and the carry strap is extremely comfortable especially when worn as a cross body bag. Love this bag and am now going to order one for my daughter

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clark from Outstanding sling bagA little larger than expected which was a nice surprise. Can fit a nice amount in the main compartment with the expand opening design. There is a zipper compartment inside to store whatever like loose change. There's also a nice velcro flap in front with two open dividers inside the large flap. There are just so many unique pockets and attachment points you can run this bag any way you want. My only feedback is the internal divider tends to get in the way, would rather have pencil holders or a velcro pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frosty from The perfect bagI have been looking for a bag that fits my needs for so long but the search is over thanks to this bag. It has shape, which many bags are so floppy and I don’t like that. It has many inside and outside compartments. So well made and attractive. I am so happy with this purchase.
