These camera bags are excellent buys for those looking to see sights and capture precious moments on film. Cameras are some of the most precious electronics out there and it's only natural to want to protect them. The Cooper is perfect for the traveler who needs to take their equipment with them as they're out and about. It isn't as large as the DNA but it certainly provides more comfort. The DNA is suited for the traveler who needs to bring all the equipment they can handle.

Shutterbug

Weighing in at 1.7-pounds, the Cooper 8 is very light when empty, despite real metal hardware, leather trim and sturdy build. It’s a pleasure to use and because it can be carried with the closed flap against your body (when in an unfamiliar crowd) or with the flap wide open (when working alone) it’s quite versatile and adaptable to different situations.

When it comes to a messenger style camera bag designed for the working pro using mirrorless camera gear, this is the only camera bag that you’ll ever need.
