About a week ago I mentioned that I was going to be doing a review for CSN stores. They have 200+ websites that sell everything from dining room furniture to home decor to house wares to children’s toys and even school and office supplies.
I ordered the above bag and it arrived this week. I am so in love with this bag. I mentioned that I now own a Canon Rebel XS digital camera. Yup. This is my new camera bag and I could not be happier with it.
I love the color. Chocolate brown on the outside and bright orange inside. Okay, I call it "hunter's orange" because it looks a lot like the clothing hanging in my hubby's closet. I still love it.
It’s a lightweight bag that easily holds not only my camera with an attached lens but also the other two lenses that I have. Nice and snug and securely. There is a small zipper pocket under the flap as well. I have stashed in there an extra lens cap and an additional filter for my macro lens.
The bag is definitely designed to be used by a photographer who is on the go and shooting while moving. I wasn’t sure how the enclosures would work but I was more than thrilled when I saw it. The bag hangs from my right shoulder and there is only one large loop and hook strap that needs to be undone – easy to do one-handed and magnets that hold down the flap.
There are also two small zipper pockets on the flap and on the back of the bag. Easy to stow papers and perhaps a little money or id while doing a photo walk. Then I’ll only need to carry one bag.
I absolutely love this camera bag. It’s small and compact and lightweight. I’m excited to try this out later in the summer when we go for a trip to Boston. We’ll be walking around the city and I plan to just carry this one bag.
Be on the look out. In a few months I'll be hosting a giveaway from CSN stores!
*Disclaimer: CSN Stores provided me with a gift certificate to their company in order to purchase this bag. All opinions of it are my own.
