If you own a DSLR camera and carry a laptop with you everywhere, I have officially found THE perfect bag (no exaggeration).
Awhile back, I was searching around for a bag that would hold both my laptop, camera, lenses, chargers and video cameras because when you travel with two little ones, carrying 3 separate carry-ons gets extremely tiring and old – fast! For the last 3 trips I struggled with a bulky camera case, my laptop case and my purse which is large enough to hold an iPad and snacks (needless to say, I’ve built up quite a few muscles walking up and down North American airports). I was in dire need of a change and considered purchasing a backpack to make things easier. Thankfully, I came across Epiphanie, a company who has designed revolutionary camera bags for women.
If you have a laptop, the Clover and Paris are your best bet! Take a look at the Paris above. Measuring 18 x 6 x 11 inches, this beauty is the same size as my large diaper bag and has separate compartments inside to hold 1 15″ Macbook Pro with battery cord, 1 camera body with lens attached, 1 long lens, 2 extra lenses, wallet, keys, cell phone and a few other personal items (I was able to fit a couple of diapers and a small pack of wipes).
You would swear the bag is made from leather as the water-resistant exterior is such a high quality material it’s hard to distinguish the difference between leather and synthetic. The Paris comes in 3 colors: Turquoise, Purple and Black, and when you open the bag you are treated to a bright interior. I opted for the black Paris and it is lined in a gorgeous hot pink fabric. Love!
Worried about the size of your camera or have a lare lens attached? No worries, the velcro panels can easily be adjusted and moved into any position required (just like a regular camera bag) Thanks to the padded, removable cross body strap, carrying the bag is a cinch and is never overly bulky!
I can guarantee you that I will never ever travel without an Epiphanie bag again. Ridding myself of 2 carry-ons on our last trip was liberating to say the least, especially when traveling with two very active little ones!
If you don’t have a laptop or prefer to leave it at home while traveling, Epiphanie also sells the stylish Ginger, Lola and Belle bags with enough room to hold personal items, your camera and lenses. Go on, have yourself an Epiphanie ;).
The amazing ladies at Epiphanie Bags are offering one of our readers the chance to win a Paris bag (value $184.99) in your choice of black or turquoise (purple is currently sold out).
