This Valentine’s Day, I got a treat for me. A new camera bag. A stylish, fun, modern, feminine camera bag. I love it. It’s one of the gorgeous, stylish and totally functional Jo Totes– the Rose bag, in Marigold. The name alone drew me in, but look how gorgeous this bag is! I have gone through I think 4 other camera bags since starting to use a DSLR camera, and this is by far the most stylish and functional. I’ve had pretty ones too but they don’t feel as sturdy. I want to feel like my camera investment is protected!
The beauty of this bag kind of speaks for itself. The functionality is awesome. Lots of options to configure the interior (in a fun houndstooth print) to get your equipment the way you like it, roomy pockets of varying sizes. Four adjustable pads mean lots of ways to use the interior! You can use the handles to carry your bag or clip the shoulder strap on and keep your hands free. This bag can also very easily be used for other purposes when you aren’t using it for a camera bag, or give it multi function. There is plenty of room for your camera, a spare lens, your flash, and some purse items.
Strong pockets and very durable hardware and closures ensure that this bag investment will protect your camera equipment for a very long time, all while letting you express your individuality and fashion. There are even metal feet to keep your bag looking its best when you set it down.
The folks at Jo Totes set out to make fun, fashionable and functional camera bags for women. They succeeded. I think that their prices are GREAT, because when you invest in a DSLR camera and lenses, flash, and all of the other accessories and components you may use, you NEED to protect that investment. Why not do it in style? I’ve had bags that cost the same but they are boxy and boring, and totally not something that makes me happy to carry. I LOVE bags, and I really love fun bags. The Rose bag just makes me smile!
It was really, really difficult to choose just one color. The teal really calls out to me, too. Not into Marigold or Teal? The Jo Totes also come in black, raspberry, moss, sugarplum, noir floral and chocolate. Lots of delightful colors to suit your style!
