Known for their luxurious camera bags, Hawkesmill England are debuting a new collection catering to photographers who have ditched larger cameras for smaller and sleeker models. So if you own a mirrorless, Leica, or a DSLR and single lens attached, you’ll want in on this cool collection. Hawkesmill uses materials like Scottish Harris Tweed and triple-layered waterproof canvas and features an innovative dual-d ring closure and trigger hook system that ensures that all of the gear inside is safe and secure, but quick to access. A second d-ring acts as an overflow ring, for those occasions when a little too much has been packed.
This small line also includes a removable and replaceable insert, which provides a lifetime of use. There’s a rear sleeve that keeps valuables, such as passports, tickets, memory cards and money, against your body and safe.
You can choose from five styles the classic all-black Bond Street; the olive Jermyn Street, with a traditional Harris Tweed design; the 18oz canvas Marlborough with English vegetable tanned leather; the black body with charcoal Harris Tweed flap Sloane Street; and, for the first time in camera bags, the Regent Street, an all-Horween Chromexcel version, touted as one of the finest leathers in the world.
Each of the small canvas bags is priced at £329 (around $414), while the small leather Regent Street is £469 ($590). All the beautiful bags are handmade in England and come with a lifetime warranty against defects.
