- Camera Bag Features That Will Totally Change the Way You Work
Whether it's a quick day trip with your friends to take some photos at the beach or a weeks-long trip around the world, you need the right gear to keep your camera and lenses out of harm's way.
From camera straps to small day bags to roomy weekender bags, there's no shortage of products on the market today that will help you carry your gear in a way that keeps it safe and sound.
And if you ask me, if you're looking for the best quality gear to protect your camera equipment, it's hard to beat what Holdfast is putting out these days.
Let's have a look at a few of Holdfast's best bets when it comes to protecting your gear when you're on the move.
A Better Camera Strap: The Holdfast MoneyMaker
I have a Holdfast MoneyMaker, and it is hands-down one of the best things I've ever purchased.
And I don't throw "the best thing ever" type of superlative around just willy-nilly, either...
The MoneyMaker is purpose-built to make the camera-carrying experience one that's comfortable for you and safe for your cameras.
The dual harness system means that you can carry two cameras quite easily, and with a quick attachment, you can actually carry a third camera as well, as seen below.
And rather than having the weight of that gear borne by your neck or a single shoulder, the MoneyMaker spreads that weight out across both shoulders and your back.
That means you can carry more gear more comfortably. What's not to like about that?
But what makes the MoneyMaker so comfortable isn't just the dual-strap design.
It also has to do with the materials and the fit.
You can get MoneyMakers in a host of leathers that are tanned, shrunk, and incredibly supple. In other words, with a little use, these things mold to your body like a glove for the utmost comfort.
As I said earlier, the MoneyMaker isn't just about your comfort - it's also about carrying your gear in a way that's supremely safe.
Your cameras are held close to your body, out of the way, so you can maneuver around without worry about knocking your cameras on nearby objects or people.
The anchored metal D-rings and safety straps ensure your gear stays connected to the MoneyMaker, so you can move with purpose no matter if you're navigating through a crowd of people or tackling an outdoor adventure.
Since your cameras hang right at your fingertips, the MoneyMaker makes bringing your camera to your eye a breeze as well.
So not only can you carry your gear in comfort and safety, but you can also more easily reach your camera for the shot.
You can even carry extra pouches and bags with a MoneyMaker as well!
Not bad, right?
An Ideal Day Bag: The Holdfast Sightseer
If you're taking a quick adventure, you need a camera bag that's roomy enough to carry your needed camera gear but does so without being too bulky or in the way.
The Holdfast Sightseer is one such bag.
Inside, you'll find an Aztec flannel fleece-lined interior that cradles your camera, lens, and other items gently but securely.
Outside, you'll appreciate the American Bison leather and waxed canvas cover that's both weather-resistant and durable to keep your gear safe and sound even if the weather isn't ideal.
The Sightseer is adaptable to your needs, too.
Start your day with the Sightseer on its own, and if you find you need to carry more gear, add a lens pouch or two to accommodate your extra gear. Heck, you can even add a cell phone pouch!
Better still, the Sightseer and Sightseer pouches are compatible with the Holdfast MoneyMaker so you can create the ultimate camera carrying device.
In other words, the Sightseer is the perfect system for traveling quick and light, but without sacrificing comfort, carrying capacity, or the safety of your gear.
That's not a bad combination if you ask me!
A Versatile Camera Bag: The Holdfast Roamographer
The Holdfast Roamographer was the first Holdfast product I ever purchased.
Just looking at it online, I knew it was going to be an incredible bag, but once I actually got my hands on it, I knew I had totally underestimated how good the bag would be.
It's a remarkable bag, one that not only is incredibly functional and versatile but one that looks incredibly stinking good, too.
To say that the Roamographer is made with a quality of craftsmanship that's on the next level is an understatement...
The bag comes in two sizes - small, which is perfect for mirrorless camera users, and large, which is ideal for DSLRs.
Regardless of which one you pick, you get an interior space that's got a handy camera insert that keeps your gear neatly organized and safe from bumps and bruises as you travel, too.
It's even got carrier straps to carry your tripod with ease as well.
And you can carry all that gear in the utmost comfort because the Roamographer's shoulder strap is lined with shearling.
But if you don't want to use the shoulder strap, no problem! The Roamographer can be carried with the MoneyMaker, too.
The versatility of this bag doesn't stop there, though...
The interior camera insert can be removed, giving you one big expanse of space to carry whatever you want.
That makes the Roamographer not just a camera bag, but a handy weekend bag for carrying clothes or whatever you need.
When it comes to traveling in comfort and ensuring your gear is safe and sound, it's tough to beat the Roamographer and Holdfast's other products.
Take that advice from someone that's been there, done that!
