The Kenora Backpack $109.99
The Kenora Backpack by Portage Supply Co. has a water-resistant waxed canvas exterior to keep your gear dry, and plenty of room and padded dividers to hold your camera, lenses, memory cards, and up to a 15-inch laptop. What makes it perfect for everyday use is its side access pocket that allows you to quickly grab your camera without opening up the whole bag.
"As a pro photographer, I love this bag. It's shockingly similar to my friends Ona bag, but less than 1/4 the price. The quality is excellent -- from the extra heavy quick snap clips, to the rugged zippers, leather bottom, and sturdy-sewn straps for heavier equipment. Also works brilliantly as my carry-on, as I'm often traveling for wedding and fashion shoots abroad." says Phillip in his product review.

Prefer to use your own backpack? You can still give your camera the protection it needs with this Neoprene Camera Sleeve Case.

Available in 11 colors and patterns, it coordinates perfectly with their matching camera straps.
"This camera bag is a perfect fit for my Canon Rebel T6i. The neoprene is thick enough to protect my camera when tossed into my purse, and I can rest easy knowing my camera is safe. I love the little zipper pocket; I can fit my memory card and extra battery in it." says McKenna in their product review.

"This is ESSENTIAL for my picture taking! This stays on my camera at all times because I hold my camera (Nikon D7200) in my right hand all of the time! This enables me to concentrate on getting that shot and NOT having to worry if my camera slips out of my hand." says mikesmigaj in his five-star review.
