My Perfect M8 Bag - Fogg b-laika
Feb 7, 2009

Hi there

I found this bag on the Robert White website, and after much measuring and wondering I bought it last week (ordered it at 4pm on a snowy afternoon, and it arrived at 9am the next morning).

I had heard of Fogg bags before, but I'd never seen one, and I knew they were 'too' expensive. This WAS expensive for a little bag, but when I discovered that they are hand made by a couple now living in france, and then, when I saw the craftsmanship, suddenly it didn't seem expensive at all. Here is their website

I'm not keen on 'fat' bags, but I did want a bag which would fit 2 leica bodies, each with lenses, with space for a spare lens. More importantly, I wanted to get one body in with both the WATE and the frankenfinder fitted. This had been too much for every other small bag I'd tried.

Anyway, here are some pictures:
this gives you an idea of the size:

here is the front:

here is the back

and here are a couple of shots of it packed and ready to go:

it has two M8 bodies, one fitted with WATE and finder, the other with 35 'cron, tucked away inside is the 75 'cron, batteries, 1.4 viewfinder etc.

and you hardly know you're carrying it.

Further to this, I sent a quick email to Fogg with a couple of queries, and got back a charming and very informative and helpful email from bee herself.

It's really nice to do business with a small family firm producing stellar products.

It goes without saying that I don't have any connections with Fogg. I'm simply impressed with the goods, and happy with the service

HOORAY!
All the best
