Mini test Shoul­der bags

Style and sub­stance: six bags that’ll carry plenty of kit but also look great

NPhoto - - Test Team -

here is no short­age of ways to carry your gear when you’re on the go, from cam­era hol­sters to ded­i­cated back­packs and trol­ley cases. The clas­sic shoul­der bag is still a firm favourite with pho­tog­ra­phers, though, as there’s noth­ing like hav­ing your Nikon right by your side.

We’ve gath­ered six bags that’ll each carry a Nikon D-SLR with at­tached kit lens, plus at least two ex­tra lenses and ac­ces­sories. You should have space for a tablet too, and some larger ver­sions can even cope with a small lap­top. All the bags we’re re­view­ing this is­sue have cus­tomis­able in­te­ri­ors with padded di­viders, so whether your cam­era is a rel­a­tively small D3300 or a mon­ster D4s, you can con­fig­ure your bag to fit.

But it’s not only what’s in­side that counts – if you’re in­vest­ing a pretty penny in a shoul­der bag it shouldn’t be short on style ei­ther. With fash­ion­able can­vas-and-leather looks on of­fer, and even some choice of colours, you’ll be able to take your Nikon out and about with­out look­ing like a tourist, or wor­ry­ing that your bag is ad­ver­tis­ing its costly cargo to thieves.
