Protect your most valuable accessory in style.
Your camera is probably the most valuable travel accessory you carry around with you–and we don’t just mean money-wise.
Sure, you’ve invested quite a bit into buying a nice DSLR body and at least a couple of lenses to make sure you are always prepared to take the perfect shot, and that’s all great. But the real value in your camera is that it holds snippets of your dream vacation, turned into memories you can enjoy long after you’re back home.
So if you’re going to be spending hours walking around with expensive gear, why not do it in style? (Without sacrificing solid protection, of course.) Here’s the problem with some camera bags nowadays: they all look the same. And honestly, dark nylon fabrics in cuboid shapes do not look remotely chic.
So instead, consider a bag that matches your outfit and personal style. There are a lot of great options on the market—from high-quality leather messenger bags that will fit pretty much all of your photo equipment to smaller crossbody purses perfect for carrying point-and-shoot or instant cameras.
And although their exteriors will catch your eye, what they offer inside will equally impress. Expect easily-accessible pockets and compartments that will make sure your gear stays securely in place while you’re on the go as well as sturdy construction and padding for added protection. You can also choose from a variety of price points to match your budget.
Here, we rounded up the chicest camera bags for both men and women to take on your next trip.
