Hawkesmill launches new line of small luxury camera bags
Hawkesmill England, a maker of luxury camera bags and accessories, has launched its new line of smaller bags designed to be used with mirrorless cameras, or smaller DSLRs with an attached lens. Like Hawkesmill's larger models the new line comes with a removable camera insert and a rear sleeve for memory cards, documents and other smaller items and valuables.
The bags come in various styles and are made from premium materials, such as Scottish Harris Tweed and triple-layered waterproof canvas. A dual D-ring closing system allows for quick access to your gear while holding it safely. It also lets you slightly expand the bag's capacity when some extra space is needed. All models of the new line come with the same overall dimensions of 10 x 8 x 5in (25.4 x 20.3 x 12.7cm). However, weight varies slightly between 2.5lb and 3.5lb (1.13kg to 1.58kg).
All canvas models of the small bag are available now for £329 (approximately $420), the Regent Street model, which is made from leather, will set you back £469 (approximately $595). All Hawkesmill bags are handmade in England and come with a lifetime warranty.
Hawkesmill England Launches New Small Range of Luxury Camera Bags
West Sussex, England (December 5th 2016) – Today, Hawkesmill England, one of the leading high-end camera accessories brands, announced it is rolling out a line of smaller luxury camera bags. Currently, Hawkesmill makes a stylish large camera messenger bag, suitable for needed gear and a 15” MacBook Pro. These new bags are designed to be used with smaller cameras, i.e., mirrorless, Leica, or a DSLR and single lens attached.
Hawkesmill utilizes superbly luxurious materials, such as Scottish Harris Tweed and triple-layered waterproof canvas, while the firm’s innovative dual-d ring closure and trigger hook system ensures that all of the gear it holds is safe and secure, while also being quick to access. A second d-ring acts as an overflow ring, for those occasions when a little too much has been packed.
Similar to the large bags, the small line also includes a removable insert that is replaceable, ensuring a lifetime of use, as well as a rear sleeve that keeps valuables, such as passports, tickets, memory cards and money, against your body and safe.
There are five models currently available: the classic all-black Bond Street; the olive Jermyn Street, sporting a traditional Harris Tweed design; the distinctive 18oz canvas Marlborough with English vegetable tanned leather; the black body with charcoal Harris Tweed flap Sloane Street; and, in a first for camera bags, the Regent Street, an all-Horween Chromexcel version, known as one of the finest leathers in the world.
The overall dimensions of each of the new Hawkesmill bags are 10″ wide x 8″ high x 5″ deep (25.4cm x 20.3cm x 12.7cm), while the weight varies slightly by model, from 2.5lbs to 3.5lbs (1.13kg to 1.58kg).
All of the small canvas bags sell for £329.00, while the small leather Regent Street is £469.00. Along with the large bags, these are all handmade in England with a lifetime warranty against defects.
The company also makes luxurious leather camera neck straps, card holders and passport holders.
