Any photographer who’s ever been serious about photography knows that there is no substitution for quality. The reason that I demand quality is because I feel that it is important for me to do my highest quality work no matter where or what I am photographing.
Of course, it is important to have a top quality camera because it takes your photographs, but it is also important to have a camera bag that will protect your camera when you are carrying it around. There is nothing more disappointing than realizing you have forgotten a lens or spare battery when you are on location. However, with a good camera bag that is no longer a concern. When it comes to the right camera bag, there is only one name that many photographers trust, Herringbone. My Herringbone camera bag is a prized possession and has been for years.
Herringbone camera bag are designed and constructed in Korea, which only adds to the desirability factor of these classic bags as they are quite difficult to find. There are three different styles of Herringbone camera bags; these are the leather bags, the canvas bags, and the Cordura bag. All of these bags are handmade and the highest quality.
Leather bags The favorite camera bag by Herringbone, the most looked for and unfortunately the most costly one. The reason so many professionals seek out these leather Herringbone camera bags is because it combines the classic feel, while giving it a more modern look. It is what Herringbone calls ‘classical comfort.’
Canvas bags The canvas Herringbone camera bags come in two different styles, the ‘Heritage’ and the ‘Discovery.’ When the heritage was introduced in 2010, Herringbone presented it as a classic canvas camera bag with leather styling. The Heritage Herringbone camera bag is marketed towards those particular consumers who are going to take their camera everywhere and want to hold more than just their camera. This model also marks the first time that a Herringbone camera bag came with a dust cover.
Cordura bag To call the options limited would be an understatement. Herringbone currently only sells one Cordura camera bag, the beatle medium brown. It comes with all the impressive comfort that should be expected from a Herringbone camera bag.
From my perspective, a Herringbone camera bag simply cannot be replaced. While they might require an expense, it is an investment in both style and practicality that no other camera bag on the for sale today can beat.
