As quoted by Dharma Chandru, "Being an avid traveller and Photo Mentor it has been a routine to carry my Laptops with me. But the problem was to carry my Camera gear for my Daily life. The Existing Camera bags are either bulky or impractical for day to day use. When BlackForest Bags sent in their Rimo 1 Tan Handmade Leather Bag I was initially skeptical in reviewing but after weeks of usage its part of my daily routine and it has already replaced my existing Laptop Bag which can also carry Two Full Frame Cameras and Two Lenses.
First thing to be appreciated is that the bag Made in India with Very Fine Craftmanship. Its Minimalist, strong and also Practical.
This Bag is for travellers who want to carry their Camera with them always without carrying a separate bag. Though this can’t replace the traditional camera bags which are much more rugged, the bag wins with its style, quality and minimalistic design. The bag has two Compartments in the Front. One is Open which can carry your bigger tablets or harddrives and the next compartment with the zip is for carrying your objects securely. I preferred to put in my Phone, IDs, Cables, Memory Cards, USB Drives and Presentation tools in it. There’s also a partition in the bag which has a button latch to close where you can carry your paper work.
This Blackforest Bag can carry a 13inch Macbook Pro or a 15inch Macbook Pro. Being an avid music listener my Laptop bag consists of a Laptop, Amazon Fire Tablet, Portable Hard Drive, Headphone Amp, Mobile Phone.
Now in addition to this I can very well carry two of my Full Frame Canon Cameras 5D Mark III bodies with a 24-70 F2.8 Lens and 70-200 F2.8 L Lens mounted on each.
This bag comes with Black and Brown colors and I preferred Brown. There’s enough padding in sides and bottom to safeguard the cameras. The fit will be tight when you put in two cameras with a laptop but the safety is very well assured. Priced at 199$ this could be a stylish replacement for the boring colored Camera bags which one uses for their daily use."
