Sidekick Canvas Bag Review


Rule #1 - take your camera everywhere you go... with your Sidekick Bag!

Traveling in Singapore is a breeze. You can walk from one district to another in less than an hour (they don’t have states or big cities here!). With this lifestyle, you definitely need a bag to go along with carrying with you your precious cameras and accessories within reach. This is why I have my Lomo Sidekick Bag with me always.

With its compact size and slim design, my wife and I do take turns using this bag. The natural cotton canvas makes it very comfortable to bring along anywhere you go. The bag itself can be separated into two modules. With its 2-in-1 design, it actually allows you to use both parts together or separately. The bigger piece can be used separately to carry chunky items like my Horizon Kompakt and some books, while the smaller part can accommodate my ever reliable LC-A+ within my arm’s reach, a space for my Colorsplash Flash, and a few films fitted to the stylish pockets.

So the next time you plan to have a short trip or go for a walk, think about the Sidekick Bag. You’ll definitely need one.

    I got the Sidekick TPE bag and it's great (despite the fact that the TPE skin tends to deteriorate due to intensive use) and a sidekick lite canvas bag: these are really my everyday bags and THE bags for going out shooting of course: never found a more practical bag to put my cameras films and accessories!! :)) If you don't have a sidekick bag, you should really get one!! :)

    thanks guys!

    @paramir @rater - my mac fits perfectly.. but don't try to bring your horizon camera with your mac, you'll have to bring another sidekick for it. :)
