It’s no secret that all of the editors at PhotographyTalk love the Holdfast Roamographer collection.
The fact that Holdfast gear lasts so long is the primary reason why I love it. As someone who has been through tons of leather camera accessories in my lifetime, I’ve found that the Holdfast Roamographer collection is one of the few leather accessories collections that actually last as long as any leather product should.
Plus, the Holdfast Roamographer collection was actually created by photographers. If you’ve purchased a bad leather camera bag before, then you likely purchased a leather camera bag that wasn’t created by a photographer.
So, just in time for the holidays, we decided to shine a special spotlight on the Holdfast Roamographer collection.

We obviously can’t talk about the Holdfast Roamographer collection without first discussing the Holdfast Roamographer, aka the bag that started it all.
The camera bag comes in two different options, a large size which is meant for DSLR gear and a small size which is meant for mirrorless gear.
The large bag comes with 8 pockets, 3 dividers and 1 lens chassis, while the small bag comes with 6 pockets, 2 dividers, and 1 lens chassis. Both of the bags have an external strap which allows you to carry a tripod everywhere you go.

Both options are made out of American Bison leather and they both come in either brown or dark chocolate.
This bag was created to fit all of your camera equipment, but it was also created to act as a weekend bag, i.e., you can fit a change of clothes and some toiletries in it if you need to. This also means that it acts wonderfully as a carry on bag for photographers who travel for work frequently.
The bag comes with a removable camera insert that allows you to keep all of your camera gear separated and safe while traveling. This removable camera insert actually became so popular that Holdfast now sells it separately. It’s that good.
The bag’s straps are lined with shearling, making it the most comfortable camera bag you’ve ever had to carry. All of the hardware on this bag is made of sterling silver, which prevents rust in especially humid or wet climates.
The large Roamographer costs $725, while the small Roamographer costs $610. This obviously is on the more expensive side of most camera bags, but you have to remember that each Holdfast product comes with a lifetime guarantee which means this is the last camera bag you will ever need to buy.
Importantly, Holdfast works with Afterpay, so if you need to split this payment up into interest-free installments you can. That means you can get the Roamographer in your home today for just $180.
The Roamographer Henley is, quite possibly, the most comfortable sweatshirt you'll ever have the pleasure of wearing.
This sweatshirt comes in either grey or camouflage and is available in sizes small through extra large. Each sweatshirt comes with the Holdfast Roamographer logo, which is a running bison, right on the lapel. The Roamographer Henley is unisex, so it’s the perfect gift for everyone.
Like each Holdfast product, the Roamographer Henley is made in the United States. You can purchase one for $45 here.
This henley will look great with your favorite pair of jeans and these gorgeous Roamographer boots the next time you’re out shooting!
If you’re looking for a leather wallet to match with your leather camera bag, Holdfast has one for you.
The Roamographer Wallet is a hanging wallet, which also acts as a luggage tag. You can easily attach this wallet to your belt or your Roamographer bag, depending upon how you’re using it that day.
The wallet comes with four interior pockets, so you can hold your ID, your passport, your credit cards and your smartphone. Calling it a “wallet” is a little bit misleading in this way, because it is large enough to fit all of your accessories. You can even attach your keys to the swivel snap.
It’s a great way to keep all of your belongings on you, but out of the way.
The wallet also comes in brown or black, so you can match it to your Roamographer bag.
You can pick up the Roamographer Wallet for $100. Like the other items in the Roamographer collection, the Roamographer wallet comes with a lifetime guarantee, so you know it's made of quality materials. Unlike other wallets, this one just gets better with age.
