Epiphanie Bags… more than just a camera bag!
Epiphanie Bags are functional, fashionable and absolutely FABULOUS!
When I was in Los Angeles on the press event for Guardians of the Galaxy/The Hundred-Foot Journey/ABC Family Event, 3 of my fellow bloggers were sporting these amazing camera bags. Not only could their Epiphanie Bags carry their high-tech cameras, Jana from Merlot Mommy had her laptop inside her Brooklyn Backpack! I knew I needed one!
Epiphanie Bags was kind enough to allow me to review their Brooklyn Backpack in turquoise. First of all, I love the color. It it bright and vibrant…just like my personality! The Brooklyn bag is a stylish backpack that can quickly turn into a cross-body bag (depending on how you like to carry your bag). It comes with two detachable shoulder straps so bag can be worn as backpack and a detachable, padded cross-body strap. Personally, I love backpacks so I will be keeping the shoulder straps on the bag, and leave the padded cross-strap inside just in case. It’s nice to have a choice!
Brooklyn was designed to accommodate your 15″ laptop, iPad or tablet/eReader, camera + attached lens, 1 long lens, 1 short lens, flash, battery pack and wallet. Extra pockets ideal for storage of keys, cell phone, memory cards, business cards, travel maps and more!
The bag measures 14″L x 6.5″W x 14.5″H. It’s made with water-resistant, high-quality synthetic leather. It’s by far the nicest camera/equipment bag I have ever owned! I know it will be the perfect bag to take on my next press event!!!
This amazing bag has two front pockets with magnetic snap closures (perfect for easy access to your cell phone and business cards). Under the flap (above the small pockets) you will find a large slide-in pocket that will easily hold any paperwork you need for your next business trip (I was thinking it would be the best spot for my agenda). There are also 2 small slide-in pockets on each side of the bag, just large enough for a quick snack bar. On the back you will find a zipper pocket large enough to accommodate an iPad or Kindle.
Inside the Brooklyn bag is an ultra-soft grey lining with extra padding for maximum equipment protection. Remember, this is a camera bag! They sewed in a foam panel towards the back separating the laptop section (Fits a 15″ laptop easily…mine is a little too big, so I guess I need a new one…or maybe an iPad. My husband won’t mind. Right?!?!). All of the dividers can be fully removed, so you can customize your bag to fit your needs or transition to an every day bag! After modifying the panels I was able to put my laptop, camera, battery charger, camera cords and wallet inside with tons of room for extras.
You don’t have to be a professional photographer to own an Epiphanie bag… but you will look like one!
Epiphanie was started four years ago by professional photographer Maile (pronounced Mylie) Wilson. At the time, there were no cute camera bags for women. She hated lugging around a separate, bulky man-bag. So she’d end up leaving her camera at home or shoving it into her purse wrapped up in whatever was nearby; a towel, sock, sweatshirt.
Obviously that isn’t the best way to protect expensive gear. When she realized that stylish camera bags for women didn’t exist, she decided to create her own line. And it was obvious that she wasn’t alone in a need for them. When Epiphanie launched in 2009, there were already almost 10,000 people on the waiting list, with all kinds of funny stories about the different things they used to wrap up their cameras: diapers, pot holders, even maxi pads!
Four years later, the collection has expanded from three to twelve styles and over 60 different bags that accommodate cameras, laptops and even backpacks for men. And there’s lots more to come!
