Hello Leabags

One thing I absolutely love is taking photographs. So much so that I completed a night course at my local college doing Conventional Photography. One pain with this is carrying around all the gear and equipment that I have accumulated over time (trust me, there is a lot as I have a tendency to hoard everything even if it's broken) so I have been on the look out for a bag to keep everything in while I'm on the go and Leabags have come to the rescue with this one, the Greensboro backpack!

Leabags is a German company that specialises in hand crafted leather goods for every person for every occasion whether that is your daily commute, your trip to the gym or like me, to hold your camera equipment. The Greensboro is made from genuine buffalo leather, has sturdy leather and canvas straps and padded Velcro inserts so you can section off the inside of the bag which is perfect for keeping your different lenses safe and protected. 

I set out to put the Greensboro to the test with my new Canon DSLR so me and the family headed out to Duthie Park in Aberdeen. The bag has one pocket at the front which is perfect to pop your lens caps in when your mid shot, two zipped pockets at the side that I stored my keys and purse in then there is one main section of the bag that you open from the back which I like because there's nothing worse than when you have expensive equipment with you in a busy place, this just helped me know that my gear was safe and secure when out and about.

Like I said before, in the main section there are padded inserts that can be moulded and placed inside however you like so I made three little sections at the bottom for my different lenses then two sections at the top, one for my DSLR body and one for my little tripod. There's also a handy little pocket with a zip inside the bag which is ideal for storing spare batteries and SD cards.

Side note for non photographers out there: whip out the inserts and you have a backpack padded perfectly to protect your laptop or anything you need to take on your travels. It's also the ideal size for a weekend away with plenty of pockets for your essentials.

As the bag is made with genuine buffalo leather you can just tell by looking at it that it is amazing quality and it's going to be durable - it also smells and feels incredible! I know that I am going to be using this for years and years and that it's going to get better with age!


"A lovely versatile camera bag which has a cavernous storage space for both cameras or even your everyday essentials. The bag has two side pockets for storage as well as a front flap. Open up the zip to the larger pocket and you are greeted with ample space, although this has been marketed as a camera bag I think this would also be great as an everyday bag."

I love this bag from the nutmeg textured leather to the comfortable straps - it's really comfortable to wear even when it is full to the brim and trust me, I filled it with everything I possibly could. With my Greensboro from Leabags I will be ready for every photography adventure!
