The 10 Best camera bags
Whether you’re after a classic case in the style of Lee Miller or something hi-tech, keep your precious kit safe in one of these.

A compact and versatile carrier that comfortably functions as a handheld case, shoulder or belt bag. The five compartments and pockets will snugly fit an SLR camera and a couple of your favourite lenses, as well as filters and those all-important films.
This stylish leather camera bag that wouldn’t look out of place on Lee Miller’s arm is from the vintage-inspired bag brand Grafea. It’s also reminiscent of the satchels seen everywhere over the past year, making it be a treat for any fashion- or history-conscious snapper.
Big with the cycle scene, Crumpler has made a name for itself with minimal and cool urban bag designs. Among its wide camera-bag range is this slick number with a dipped bottom and soft Nylex lining. It also comes in a range of eight bright colours.
Aquapac is the brand to go for if you want to keep your gadgets safe in all weathers. This small, padded waterproof camera pouch comes with an adjustable belt, perfect for camping, adventure sports or muddy festivals.
Winning praise from the likes of GQ and Grazia, who described it as a “front-row essential”, this leather camera bag from the radical fashion designer JW Anderson takes its inspiration from 1940s carry cases and is modelled to fit the Nikon 1 camera.
At less than a fiver, this funky canvas pouch is an absolute steal. Perfect for pocket point-and-shoot cameras, the brightly coloured case is also suitable for MP3 players and mobile phones. It’s just one of a wide range of fantastically designed cases and bags stocked by Rigu.
At first glance, it just looks like another rucksack, albeit a trendy one. But the vintage stylings are just the tip of the iceberg of this specially designed camera bag, which splits in half across the middle to allow access to a top and bottom compartment. Clever stuff.
For the snapper on a mission, this bag truly is designed to hold every piece of kit you can think of. Big enough to hold a telephoto lens, there’s also space for plenty of smaller lenses as well as pouches for filters. There’s even a quick-clip tripod-attachment system.
A great-value bag designed to fit big SLRs or camcorders. The all-weather cover will keep your kit safe in rain or shine and the extra-soft lining will keep your camera snug without scratching your lenses or LCD screen.
A stylish but simple design, this pouch is a great way to keep your compact camera safe while you’re out on the town. It features two compartments, so you can keep cables and spare batteries in it as well as the camera itself.
