I’ve been on the hunt for a while now for practical, yet stylish, bags for my Canon DSLR camera and laptop. When I travel, I need to have bags that not only protect my gear but that are easy to carry and take along with me. The bags need to be practical and functional or it’s just not even worth it to me to have them.
The solution to my camera storage problem has been this petite camera bag from Jill-E Designs ($49.99). This shoulder bag features stylish weather resistant material on the outside with top-grain leather trim, a front storage pocket and a netted storage pocket inside. The inside of the bag is padded to protect the camera and has removable pads to create a snug fit. I love the price point of this bag and recommend it as a Christmas gift for the photog in your life.

Laptop bags can be a bit more tricky. First, you have to find a laptop bag that is made for the size of your laptop. You also need to make sure it’s easy to carry, will protect your laptop and isn’t too bulky to travel with. The solution to my laptop carrying/storage problem has been this fancy brown croc leather laptop bag, also from Jill-E Designs ($199.99). While I’m absolutely in love with this laptop bag, the price is more than I would be willing to pay if I were to purchase it myself.
This bag is made from top-quality, weather resistant leather which is why the price point is higher. This bag is ideal for the business woman who always has her laptop with her and makes her appearance a priority. It looks a lot like a purse but features strategic storage solutions for all of your electronic gear.
The top zipper closure is important to have in a laptop bag to keep all your goods safe. The two handles make this bag easy to carry (9.5″ drop) and the convenient trolley pocket makes this bag easy to travel with. This bag will fit up to a 15″ laptop or a camera with a few lenses if you’re using it for that purpose.
Jill-e Designs combines what they’ve learned satisfying demanding, creative photo professionals with an understanding of new trends and needs. The result is evident in every bag they make today – for mobile devices, for photo equipment, for travel, for the office, for a night on the town, for outdoors, for college, for everyday use.
