This is a very popular topic among creatives. The never-ending search for a multi-purpose bag. There are so many of them out there. It’s honestly super overwhelming. That’s why when I met photographer Ciara Perrone, and she told me about her new line of bags, Brinn Bags, I knew I needed one.
Not only is this bag great for photography gear, but it’s also great for everyday use and travel. If I’m honest, the biggest turn off for camera backpacks is when the bag just screams “I HAVE EQUIPMENT IN HERE!” The second biggest turnoff is that they are usually really expensive, and you only ever get to use them for gear specifically. If I’m going to spend money on a bag, it needs to protect my stuff, and I need to not look like I’m going hiking.
Brinn Bags is not just for photographers. Creatives like makeup artists, tattoo artists, travelers, and even painters have all found these bags to be the best for their craft. I mean who doesn’t want to walk around with a bad-ass Vegan Leather bag?
This bag has room for everything. Last weekend I took it on a travel test run to New Mexico. I had my Fujifilm x100F and my Canon 1Dx Mark ii with a 35mm 1.4 attached to it. I also had toiletries and a change of clothes. There was still so much room left over. The big fit right under the airplane seat in front of me, and I flew on a tiny plane. It’s the best for creatives who travel.
Like I mentioned before, I hate bags that make you look like you’re going on a personal journey up a mountain in another continent. I’m just trying to be cute and also practical. I don’t want a Subaru for a backpack. My Honey Pie Brinn Bag has enough detail where it’s gorgeous, but not too much where it’s not functional.
I’m super obsessed with this bag, but I’m also equally obsessed with the creator of Brinn Bags. Ciara is an incredible Lady Hustler and an INCREDIBLE photographer. I really love supporting fellow lady hustlers, and although this was a partnership, I cannot wait to get my hands on another bag for Chase.
My final thoughts.. Well if you’re going to spend a ton of money on gear, invest in something that will protect your tools and you can use on the regular. This bag is perfect for someone like me who does a lot of domestic and international travel for work. It’s also great to load up and day trip with.
