    This is a very nice quality vintage camera case. It is made from high quality soft rich leather that looks and feels wonderful.

    The size is:
    Outer: width-7.5 inches / 19 cm, height-7.6 inches / 19.5 cm, thickness-5.1 inches / 13 cm
    Inner: width-6.8 inches / 17 cm, height-6.9 inches / 17.5 cm, thickness-4.3 inches / 11 cm
    This is a nice bag that can be used a camera case or a bag to carry your belongings. The nice soft padded inside can be removed so it is simples a durable strong and handsome bag that my son loves to use one day trips or outings.
    It is a nice secure bag that has front closures that secure and latch shut. The strap can be adjusted to fit you comfortably. The hardware it strong solid and antique which gives it a nice unique flair.
    It has front section with a pocket for organization. This is important for me to have a place to keep my keys handy for when I need to grab them and not have to hunt for them with children waiting impatiently to get Into the car or house. There are also 2 smaller pockets which have enough room for phone and other small items.

    Package Content:
    1 x Camera bag, the camera shown is not included

    This is made from a special oiled leather material which features special scratches. This makes it so unique and a beautiful original bag to carry. It shows just how well you use and love it. This bag will age beautifully, as more use will show more character. I really like this aspect of it and I think it is really neat to own a bag like this.
    It helps to keep me a bit more organized which is something I really need and appreciate I am able to get with this vintage retro look messenger bag.
    The bag has a nice independent padded camera caddy that has enough room to hold a camera body. And it can be easily removed it needed with no worries. The thick foam and further layers of fabric and leather provide protection for your gear.
    It comes equips with:
    solid hardware
    quality metal zippers
    solid brass rivets
    high thread count polyester for the lining

    This is an excellent bag and a wise purchase. I am so pleased with this bag and it is one I am sure to keep for a very long time. It works well and is of great quality. This is an excellent purchase.
    I purchased this product for a reduced price to make an honest and unbiased review.

    EYE FOR DETAIL/QUALITY OOZES FROM ZLCY!!!!, March 24, 2016

    This review is from: ZLYC Vintage Handmade Small Removable Padded Leather Messenger Shoulder Bag for DSLR Camera and Lens, Brown (Electronics)
    The ZLYC vintage small camera/purse/satchel arrived professionally packaged with a breathable cotton, drawstring storage bag.

    When this company asked me to review this small camera bag/satchel/purse I was more just in the middle of the road versus all excited to recieve it. When I received this product and took it out of the package a lot of memories from the early 90s flooded back into my head because the smell of fresh leather. If any kid went to the mall and didn’t go to Wilsons leather goods and fell in love with that type of smell, then they weren’t in America! Now all I needed was a bomber jacket to go with my leather camera bag/satchel.

    After taking the bag out of the package, I inspected it thoroughly. The buckle and loop hardware seems to be made out of very sturdy steel. The stitching is very tight and well done. The nylon covering that is in the inside of the bag seems durable. There are a few external pockets on this bag. The front one is about 4 1/2 inches deep by 6 inches wide, the back one is about 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep and is secured with the button magnet. There are two penholders on the interior and an elastic phone or wallet holder next to it. The shoulder strap has very well-made clasps on it as well as the buckles. The adjustable leather strap has soft, dark brown material lining it. The removable inner camera case is made with very well padded and soft material. This inner camera pocket fits very tightly inside the camera case/satchel/purse.

    This bag has a natural leather finish and does scratch quite easily but if you use at cool damp cloth then all the scratches and blemishes come right out. This is like the old bomber jackets of yesteryear where each one is different. With time this bag will absorb moisture, oil, sweat and it will be very unique to anything else that’s out there. That’s the great thing about leather– every piece is unique! Leather conditioner can be used on this I’m sure but I would try it in an inconspicuous place first. The leather conditioner will give it more of a non-scuffable finish.

    In conclusion, this is a very well-made bag that is made out of natural leather with a natural finish. The craftsmanship is top notch and an eye for detail is phenomenal. I had my wife take a look at this and she is use to high-end purses, i.e., Kenneth Cole, and Coach. She says that she is very impressed with the stitching and the detail, because a lot of cheaper purses are not stitched very well and the stitching is loose. Also she stated that the seams would be uneven and not symmetrical. This bag is very symmetrical and there are no uneven seams. I don’t think I’ll end up using this for a camera bag because I already have a large one, but I think this will be an extra man bag(without soft camera insert) to go to the zoo, the park, the store with my two toddlers. Not to say it couldn’t be used as a camera bag, as you can see from the pictures. I usually take my backpack but most the time it’s too big for what we’re going to be doing. This would be a perfect size for my phone, drinks, snacks, toys and if I want to put my small camera inside I could. Now also this could be used as a purse because pen holders and wallet/phone holder, but like the wife says the buckle for securing the top flap is an inconvenience for most women. She said that if you didn’t care about the buckling and unbuckling of the top flap then this would make a good purse/day bag.

    We received this bag for free/discounted price in return for a fair and unbiased review. Both of us are registered nurses and are word/trust is our reputation!!!
