It’s a function of looks, design, construction, and size, and the Bowery checks all those boxes very nicely.

The Phoblographer

The stitching, the high quality hardware, the sturdy waxed-canvas material, and the extra secure foam inserts all come together to make a truly excellent bag for someone looking for a great carry-around solution for their mirrorless camera system.

One cool thing that I love about the Bowery is that when you scratch it, it just looks better.
