The satchels are well constructed and although not waterproof would take a moderate amount of drenching due to the thick material that they are made from. The insert is soft and your camera will fit snugly although with an L bracket on our Sony A7r and a standard zoom lens attached it made the satchel bulge a bit.

There is also a narrow gap between the inserts and the edge of the satchel that is perfect for carrying an iPad or tablet. The two pockets at the front are great for any filters or accessories. There is another pocket on the body side of the satchel that could fit a mobile phone, notepad etc however we would not use this pocket for any valuables while travelling.
The satchels are available in several sizes and colours. The satchel we tested was the "Canvas Camera Satchel Khaki Large" (the same as the pictures above). The bags are very affordable at AUD$59.95* (Small, in all colours), AUD $74.95* (Medium, only in Dark Brown, Light Brown and Two-Tone Brown) and AUD$84.95* (Large, in all colours). Below are some of the other styles -
|Camera Satchel Dark Brown - Large|
|Camera Satchel Light Brown - Large|
|Camera Satchel Two-Tone Brown - Large|
|Camera Satchel Tan - Large|
All in all, we really like these bags if we were heading out for the day and just wanted to take minimal gear. There definitely is a niche market for these satchels especially amongst the fashion conscience that carry minimal equipment and they will love these bags and it will serve them well.
