I have a soft spot for products supporting local craftsmanship; and Blackforest Bags are handmade by artisans in India who have been perfecting their craft over decades. The attention to details is hard to miss once you look closely; tight stitching, brass studs on the base, and padding on the adjustable shoulder strap.
The bag strikes the right balance between form and function; I couldn’t help but feel like my style quotient went up a few notches with the bag by my side J
For someone like me with an ever-expanding collection of photography paraphernalia, the Vinson introduces just the right amount of organization. I could fit into the main compartment my Nikon D7200 with prime lens affixed, 18-55mm kit lens, and 13” Macbook Air. It could probably fit in another lens if needed. The adjustable velcro dividers let you customize the usage of space, and are adequately padded for us clumsy lot prone to an accident or two while travelling. The front pockets held my memory cards, spare batteries, and other miscellaneous accessories.
I see myself using this bag as the perfect companion on short vacations or a local day-trip. Now if we were to be greedy, if only Blackforest could also come up with a slightly bigger bag that could fit my 15” Macbook Pro, all my dreams would come true J". Swati
Who doesn't love being appreciated and when we hear something great about our bags, we are so thrilled and encouraged to create more and provide better ways of carrying camera gear in a more stylish way yet fully function oriented.
We are very hopeful to introduce more exciting stuff this year. Stay tuned!
