Have you heard of ONA DSLR bags? ONA means “to feel” or “to believe” in Swahili and it sure made a believer out of me. As I am walking around with their Chesnut Brooklyn bag around, I constantly get compliments how chic it looks. Their products are handcrafted and produced with superior materials like full-grain cowhide leather, waxed cotton canvas, solid brass and closed cell foam. Does that mean I love it? Tune in next week to find out what I think about their Brooklyn.
Meanwhile, let’s see what’s up with ONA these days. From ONAs blog, it is evident that they have added quite a sophisticated and good looking line of camera bags to their collection. I haven’t had a chance to hold one of their new ones yet, but from the initial photos they look very stylish and versatile. Their bigger bags are designed to carry more than the camera and couple of lenses, but smaller bags are very good for small shootouts and portrait sessions, where you do not need to carry around whole a lot of gear.
While you can carry your gear in any thing that makes your life easier, ONA for sure caters for those of us who want to embrace the vibe of the vintage and shabby chic look.
Here are their new products:
The Bolton Street Backpack
Bolton looks very sleek and user friendly. It can fit a DSLR body and up to 5 lenses. It promises a very easy access to your gear from two pockets on each side.
The Leather Bowery
As for me, this is by far one of the good looking bags they have. Although not as roomy as Bolton, The Leather Bowery can carry one DSLR body and one lens. It also has plenty of compartments for your personal items.
The Smoke Bowery
The Smoke pretty much has the same functionality as its leather counterpart.
The Dark Truffle Leather Brixton
This bag is featuring Italian-tanned leather and is a dark truffle version of Brixton. It conveniently holds one DSLR body and 2-3 small lenses. Can fit in a 13″ laptop and a rear magazine pocket can conveniently hold an iPad.
As we get more ONA products, I will be able to give you hands on reviews of their products. Stay tuned!
