Compagnon “the backpack”

This is a hearty ruck style dslr pack with a canvas body and all leather back panel. Featuring a fully opening back panel to access your gear, you will need to remove the pack for changes to your lenses on the fly. While the leather is rich and handsome and the back panel is vented offering many channels of airflow, a concern is that the leather back panel will heat up when you are traveling in the summer months. The bag is handsome, though, and sure to turn heads while you are taking pics.

Compagnon Little Messenger in Waxed Canvas

An excellent option for the Vegans in the house. A canvas version of their original all leather DSLR Messenger. The Little Messenger bag can carry a dslr body and a couple of lenses. The canvas looks heavy enough to keep your gear stable while not adding too much weight overall.

The vegan little messenger is made from ‘waxed canvas‘, held in high regard as sail fabric since the early years of British naval dominance.
