Having a ‘real’ camera that costs significantly more than we have ever spent on a camera meant also getting a really good camera bag. And while I could have bought a Nikon camera bag I wanted something I really liked not just a boring black bag. (I have nothing personal against boring black bags so if that’s what you keep your camera in don’t feel bad!) I just decided that this was a camera I plan to have for quite some time and I wanted a fun bag to store/haul it in.
I didn’t look around too much. I binged ‘cute camera bag’ and came up with this:
They had several colors and I couldn’t decide. And it was made from man-made materials. So I kept looking and found this one. It was love at first sight. I looked no further.
I bought it here.
I love it. It is made of leather. Real leather. AND it’s made in the USA. And for leather it didn’t break the bank. (if you are looking for really cheap this isn’t for you – if you like leather and are used to leather prices I think you will like this) And I know I will like it for years and years – as long as I need a camera bag! Some things are just timeless. A quality leather bag is one of them.
It has great hardware and the leather is thick and sturdy. 100% full grain stone oiled leather. Waterproof. Padded insert included. My camera is safe and happy and so am I!
If you are in the market for a camera bag for your DSLR camera I highly recommend this one. (please note that you have to order the leather strap as a separate item – but seriously who wants a great looking leather bag and not the leather strap? I added the strap without thinking twice.)
What do you think? Do you like leather? If you know my husband you know that I didn’t have any arguments from him on my choice 🙂
