Common Questions About Leather Camera Bags
Is leather a good material for a camera bag?
These days most people take photographs on their phones, so if you are someone who uses a camera, you are either a professional or a serious amateur and the camera that you use is most likely a sophisticated and expensive piece of equipment. It follows that you will want to feel confident about the bag that you use to carry your camera, and that’s why you should seriously consider a leather camera bag. Leather is strong and durable, it won’t rip or tear and it will provide your camera with the protection that it needs. Let’s not forget that leather also looks great, it’s stylish and it’s professional.
Are leather camera bags durable?
A camera bag is likely to have to withstand a lot of rough use, particularly if you are a working professional. Leather is a very strong organic material, which resists abrasion and will not rip or tear, which is why bags have been made from leather for centuries. Used appropriately and stored in dry, well-ventilated conditions, a leather camera bag will last a lifetime.
Are leather camera bags practical?
A camera is a sensitive piece of equipment, which needs adequate protection when it is being carried. Flimsy, synthetic materials will not provide sufficient protection and will soon wear out; a metal camera box will certainly allow you to carry a camera safely, but it’s unwieldy and uncomfortable to carry. A leather camera bag is strong, supple and comfortable to carry; it won’t let you down and it will look even better with age.
Are leather camera bags waterproof?
A leather camera bag is not 100% waterproof in the way that a bag made from a non-biodegradable synthetic material might be, but it certainly will keep your camera dry if you are caught in the rain. Leather is an organic, permeable material but the natural oils in leather repel water. If you drop your leather camera bag in a swimming pool, your camera will get wet, but in everyday situations, a leather bag will keep your camera dry.
Does a leather camera bag provide good protection?
A camera bag made from full-grain leather will protect your camera from external knocks and will provide a supple, yielding interior in which to carry your camera.
