As many of my reader know I love photography. Many years ago I worked doing studio photography until I became a stay at home mom.
Since I purchased my Canon SLR and lenses years ago, I never what to leave home without it. I have bought and tried tons of camera bags but have never found one that I LOVE and also fit all my needs....well until NOW !
What peeked my interest in the Kelly Moore Bags is that the designer of the bags is also a (great) photographer. My thought was " Who better to know what is needed in a bag." This is a snippet of a quote from Kelly from their site about why she started to design camera bags.
" About three years ago, I started sketching and dreaming about having a handbag/lens bag line of my own. As a photographer and a woman, I was always left wanting more when it came to my options for a stylish, functional bag that I could use to carry my equipment while I photographed. I sat down and made a wish list of everything that I wanted in a great bag, and now 3 years later, I'm so excited that my wishlist has come to life!!"
Recently I received the the Kelly Moore Classic Bag in black to review and lets just say my camera and I are very happy !!!
When it arrived it was packaged very nicely.(see right). The first thing I noticed was the quality of the bag. The look and feel really make this bag stand out. It does not look like a camera bag and my first thought was people are not going to automatically think .... "hey look, a camera bag with expensive equipment". Which I think about because it is one of my fears when I am out and about that my camera gear will walk away.
In the past I have had a problem when setting my camera bag down it would fall over and everything would fall out. This Kelly Moore Bag is very different when it comes to this, it stands on it own, even with all my stuff in it, I can set it down and walk away and it WILL stand on its own!
This bag has one important feature that is a must for me, a LONG Adjustable ( up to 56") strap. I always like to wear my bag across my body and the magnetic snaps along the top allows easy access to gear even while wearing it.
