Bagged Another Bag!

I remember blogging about how I’ll stay away from buying another camera bag not too long ago but … well … ermm … sometimes I just can’t resist temptations. My camera bag count is hitting way above wifey’s number of bags and I probably have to find a way to properly store them instead of scattering them all over my study room (and a couple of them in the living room).

This one from Wotancraft arrived today in a big box. It smells weird. It smells like it has been kept in some cabinet with moth balls all over. Time to air it for a few days before putting it to use … otherwise my cammies will all die sniffing moth balls!

Despite them claiming it to be ‘army green’ … it looks more grey-ish instead. These photo might not show exactly the color because I suck at adjusting white balance. The material is pretty much like canvas with a layer of ermm … waxy coating. Soft … comfy … and has the old look that I like. :D

There are some of these little stuffs dangling at one side

The padding/insert in it is pretty thick and I had to make some adjustment to them in order to free up more space. I wanna shove in my 11″ Macbook Air in it sometimes … and it fits just nice after I replaced the very thick paddings with one from another bag.

It can fit my X100, an old SLR and still has space for another camera. I tried putting my Pentax K5 and 3 of the smaller lenses in too!


An 11″ MBA slides in nicely with the thinner padding.

There are lots and lots of pockets inside … enough for all the little accessories like memory cards or rolls of film, lens pen, card reader etc.

The shoulder pad is very comfortable with some non-slip material on the inside.

The bag comes in a very large bag that you can keep the bag in tip top condition (if you ain’t one who prefer worn out looking bags like me)

The two front ‘flaps’ look neat but ain’t good when you really need to whip out your equipments fast. With the two ‘flaps’ undone, it has a zipper on top which you can keep your stuffs safe while proving a quick access to the equipments.

Should I end this entry by saying I won’t get tempted (and buy) another camera bag in the next six months? Ermm … I guess I better not. :X

  6. Hello,

    How does it smell after few weeks ?

    I received mine few days ago and it smell so bad and I don’t know how to manage with that :(

  7. @redrag : Nope. Mine seems okay after a few days. Just wipe it with a wet cloth and then air it. Then maybe bring it out a couple of times … and that should take care of the funny smell. ;)

  8. I clean it with a wet towel and dry it in a dryer at low temperature, it smells almost nothing now !

    Thank you very much :)

  9. @redrag : Cool! Now you can go enjoy the bag without the smell. :D

  10. How much did you buy?

  11. @Khin : Can’t remember exactly but it should be around S$240

  12. Iszzit worth the price? It look really nice

  13. @khim : Ermm … how do you measure if a bag is worth the price? :P Hmm … it is pretty … the material is pretty tough (or rather … tough looking) … the paddings are thick … ermm … the pretty part makes it worth the price for me. :P
