Just in case this is your first time visiting AGW, you should know we love gear that is meant to perform. Since 1897, Filson has been producing some of the best Made in USA, rugged, outdoor bags and apparel lines you can own. We first heard a rumor about their new Photography Bags a couple months back. Working with top photographers David Alan Harvey and Steve McCurry, they teamed up to bring an entire line of worthy, outdoor inspired, photography bags for every style of shooter.
Pictured above, The Harvey Messenger Bag is a cross-body styled, throw-over-your-shoulder bag that is made of a water-resistant, tempered-finish cotton. Use it for photography or as your everyday messenger bag. It features surrounding pockets, Bridle leather trim, an interior padded laptop sleeve and removable modular dividers to keep your gear protected. Buy here.
Next up is the McCurry Tote. This bag is meant to hang by your side with rugged shoulder straps, padded handgrips, multiple pockets and optional snap closure for easy access to equipment. A removable padded divider has its own snap closure. The bag is both water- and abrasion-resistant. Buy here.
The McCurry Sportsman bag is our favorite of the bunch. This large side bag is fully padded all around with lockable zipper closures. The interior is packed with removable dividers for your gear and a wealthy compliment of pockets both inside and out. YKK nylon zippers are found throughout keeping the elements out of your bag while also reducing scratch damage. The same water-resistant, tempered-finish fabric is found on all of the Filson | Magnum Photography Bags. Buy here.
If you are looking for a slimline, minimal inspired photo bag, take a peek at the Harvey Backpack. This lightweight pack shares the same great materials with simple ergonomic padded straps for carrying comfort. What we love about this bag is that it doesn’t look like a photography bag. As any experience outdoor photographer will tell you, most bags scream, “HEY LOOK I HAVE EXPENSIVE GEAR INSIDE ME COME STEAL ME!” and that spells trouble. The padded insert surrounding your gear can be removed turning it into a great overnight or school bag. Buy here.
We have no doubt that these bags and the others in the new collection we didn’t share will be hot sellers. The packs are built to outlast whatever you put inside them and as with all Filson products, they are proudly Made in USA. You spent a lot of hard earned coin on your gear, give it a bag it deserves.
