The Vanguard Heralder 38 is a rather large shoulder bag that allows you to pack a respectable camera kit and laptop without going for a full-on backpack or roller bag.
Vanguard sent me the Heralder 38 to try out and I've been using it as my daily bag for the past couple of months, which included a trip to Vegas for NAB 2012. In short, it's an excellent shoulder bag that packs a lot of gear.
Vanguard gets a whole bunch of things right with the Heralder 38. As noted, it is big. But the overall size of the bag is not too cumbersome. It slides easily under seats on even the smaller commuter jets. Vanguard did a good job with making the space inside the bag very efficient.
The removable gear compartment gives you plenty of dividers for camera bodies, lenses, hard drives cables and tons of accessories. As someone who travels with a lot of camera a computer gear on a daily basis, the Vanguard Heralder 38 really delivers the goods.
The laptop compartment will carry up to a 15" MacBook Pro. And, if you shimmy the dividers around, you can also safely insert an iPad. There's also a front pouch with smaller compartments and slots for pens, notepads, business cards and other small accessories.
Vanguard did a great thing by putting four memory card pouches on the inside of the top panel. These secure with velcro latches and are ever-so-handy for quick access…
