24 Jun Review of the Porteen Gear ‘Rambler’ Bag for Mirrorless Cameras

A couple of years ago, whilst browsing Etsy for handmade photography products, I clearly remember coming across the Porteen Gear store and stopping dead in my tracks. The handsome leather camera bags displayed in the virtual storefront were much more colourful and stylish than other bags I’d seen from the larger manufacturers, and I was compelled to find out more.

It turned out that the Etsy store was only the tip of the iceberg; by visiting the official Porteen Gear website, I discovered that you could actually build your own custom bag using Porteen Gear’s Bag Builder with choices between different leathers, fabrics, wax canvases, and colours.

After exchanging a few emails with artisan and president Robyn Porteen, she kindly agreed to send us a sample of the Compact Camera Bag to review on MirrorLessons. It became my primary bag for my smaller mirrorless camera gear, as well as my everyday carry around bag when I wasn’t shooting, and I still use it to this day.

Today, we’ll be reviewing a prototype of the newest mirrorless product in the Porteen Gear catalog called the Rambler. Robyn was inspired to create the Rambler when she made the migration from Canon to the Fujifilm X-T1. She wanted a bag that she could use to carry around her new mirrorless gear, especially on her astrophotography outings which she plans to chronicle on her upcoming blog, Skies and Coffee.
