Artisan & Artist Soft Camera Pouch
Cushion in all the right places
A number of years ago, Japanese bag designer Artisan & Artist designed a small bag to cushion your camera when it had to be put in a carry on bag. The bag was called the Rina Bag, named after the Japanese celebrity who wanted to carry a Leica in her purse. But like many great ideas, it never took off. Probably due to the imagery of a TV newscaster posing with her Leica, photographers could not get behind it.
Recently, Artisan & Artist went back to the drawing board. They scrapped the old design, removed the zippers and made a small pouch designed to be thrown inside of a carry on, duffle bag, or any other piece of luggage. It has enough cushion to keep the camera safe, without feeling like an inflated life preserver. We made a video review of the Soft Camera Pouch below and hope you enjoy it.
