view gallery VIEW GALLERY

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.

1. Domke F-5XB

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.

£87, domkebags.co.uk

2. Grafea Leather Camera Bag

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.

£170, grafea.co.uk

3. Private Surprise Photo-S

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.

£39, crumpler.eu

4. Aquapac Small Stormproof Pouch

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.

£28, aquapac.net

5. JW Anderson for Nikon

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.

£84.99, store.nikon.co.uk

6. Ngaishak Camera Pouch

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.

£4.99, rigu.co.uk

7. F-stop rucksack

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.

£86.99, rigu.co.uk

8. Tamrac Expedition 9x

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.

£250, fotosense.co.uk

9. Lowepro Apex 100 AW

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.

£29.99, jessops.com

10. Manfrotto Nano Pouch

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.

£11.95, manfrotto.co.uk
