As part of my Christmas gifts I received some cash. I decided to use that money and splurge on a camera bag that was fancy enough for me to wear out to dinner with Alex and not look like I was hauling around a camera bag the entire night.
(And yes I am just now getting around to talking about my Christmas gift.)
I looked at several different sites trying to decide on a bag before deciding to go with JoTotes.
I went with the Rose bag in Marigold in part because I really love yellow and in part because I wanted something girly looking, but happy.
The picture does not do this bag justice, but it’s so darn pretty and soft!
So far I have absolutely no complaints about my bag. The lining is a great pattern, even for a DAWG fan like me, and the amount of padding seems pretty great. I’ve not yet had a chance to use the shoulder strap, but I imagine it will be comfortable when I do get around to that.
I use my bag in the formation they show online, and I carry my Canon Rebel, 18-55mm lens, wallet, phone, keys, some lip gloss, the shoulder strap, and typically my FLIP video camera when I carry the camera bag. The straps really spread the weight out evenly, and even though there is only one zipper pocket inside the bag that seems to be enough for me.
I think the only thing to recognize is just how big the bag is. Even without the long shoulder strap on when I carry this bag it reaches from shoulder to hips. I’m about 5’4″ if that gives you any indication of how big the bag is.
Because of the size I do NOT carry this bag every day like I originally thought I would, but I know this will be the bag I carry when I travel since it can hold everything in a single bag for me. Plus, JoTotes has plenty of other options though if you want a smaller bag.
Definitely a great purchase and a great company that I would recommend if you are looking for, or considering, the purchase of a camera bag / purse combo.
