As you may well know, I’ve already written a post called 10 Seriously Cool Camera Bags, and although it went down a treat, I caught a little flak from people saying that it was too focused towards men. They were right, it was. I was blind to the style benefits of camera bags for women, but now I can see.
I’m here to make up for it! After much deliberation (and a fair amount of input from some female friends), I’ve managed to compile a list of camera bags for women, from eight different designers. These bags are both practical, and stylish.
NOTE: A lot of these bags come in a variety of colours, so make sure you’ve chosen the colour that’s right for you.
The Kelly Moore KMB-Orange Libby bag is a well organized bag which can also be used by photography enthusiast too. The Libby bag is the first women’s bag that is designed to carry your laptop and your gear. The bag is versatile enough to meet all your needs. There is no need to carry 3 bags when you’re travelling anymore. Watch a video on the bag here.

Sure, a bag will hold your stuff, but why stop there? How about a bag that helps you be mistaken for the world’s most interesting time traveler? What you need is the Chromonaut Camera Bag, a roomy, high-quality handmade camera bag with a sharp vintage look.
With plenty of pockets and an adjustable insert, the Chromonaut Camera Bag packs lots of gear while keeping a lean profile. Handmade in Japan from water-repellent canvas, the bag’s stress points are triple-stitched to resist tearing and time warp turbulence. Plus, it’s got style for miles: its snappy vintage color scheme makes it perfect for a fashionable day out in any era.
Pack the stuff you need: we fit our Canon 5D, a lens, and a flash without even using the pockets. The Chromonaut’s always ready to go with you on an afternoon shoot, but it’s cool if cameras aren’t involved, either.

“As a photographer and a woman, I was always left wanting when it came to my options for a stylish, functional bag that I could use to carry my equipment while I shot. Over Three years ago, I started sketching and dreaming about having a handbag/lens bag line of my own.
