The Cub & Company Shooter’s Camera Bag. Hand made in the U.S.A. (Video)

I have been reviewing loads of bags lately, or so it seems. Bags are cool, and are VERY MUCH a personal choice. OF ALL the bags I have reviewed, owned or used, the Wotancraft Ryker has always been my goto #1 bag. It’s beauty, its style, its build and feel are all at a 10 out of 10. While I love other bags, the one I use most is that Ryker…

But now along comes a bag so unique and cool, it may be getting more carry time than my Wotancraft! This bag, from CUB AND COMPANY is so lightweight, so small but so large inside it is almost like an illusion. I expected it to be so tin on the inside, as most small bags are. But this one…plop open the leather top and you are greeted to a plush interior that can hold a huge DSLR and a few lenses or two mirrorless bodies and some lenses or even three Leicas and some lenses.

See the video review below!

It’s wide, short and squat and I have been waiting for something like this. My main complaint with most bags is they try to be tall and skinny. When this happens, the gear is hard to get in and out, and sometimes you need to force it in, and even then, it is a tight pack job. With the Cub & Company Shooter’s Bag, even putting a Leica SL inside fits nice and comfy as you can see in the video above!

Also very cool to have a tripod storage solution underneath…

Be sure to watch the video above as that is the actual review of the bag.

  1. Looks pretty on the photos but I don’t think is very practical or comfortable to carry around.

    My favorite bag, I would say my PERFECT bag … a $25 cordura bag I got on Amazon with a small camera insert from Timbuck2 (I had it from another bag). From the outside looks like a very low key bag but inside has plenty of room to carry my X100T, 50mm conversion lens, Ricoh GR, spare batteries, 2 chargers (Ricoh and Fuji), small flash, small LED light, Gorillapod, sunglasses, iPad mini, notebook and some bits and pieces … Never carry all this unless i’m going on a trip or a photoshoot and I want to be “prepared” for everything but it works for traveling as well as for everyday bag … I had it for a year and still looks like new pretty much. And for the $25 buck I paid for it … How many of those can I buy for the price of this camera bag we see here? Lot of them! Just saying.

    • As I said in the video, it is VERY VERY VERY comfortable to carry around. One of the most comfy I own (and I have 15 or so bags here now). It is VERY practical. It holds as much as I would ever need, or as little, while staying small. It is super easy to open and gran your gear. So in fact, it is one of the most practical and comfy bags I have used, and I have used it, and I speak my mind, and the truth. Thank you.

  2. A lot of these premium bags are a delight for the eye but I can only conclude that in 2016 people are having to fear less in big US-cities than in Europe. From what I can perceive visually this is the most sure scenario to get robbed from your expensive equipment in a few seconds time. I’ve seen it happening a few times before my eyes… all the nice features are there – to make it happen. To say in other words, today my biggest concern is that 1) a bag doesn’t seem to be a camera bag at all, and surely not one contain an expensive camera – 2) all belts, clips and closings are firm and contain a multiple security against pick-pockets. 3) the inside is protected by additional covers & zippers. No I’m not paranoia, this is a very sad reality in a time that we are so overcrowded by people looking for a ‘better’ existence.

  3. About to order but out of stock. They should have change their setting for check out for back order.

  4. Just ordered in time before it sold out. I can’t wait to use it in San Francisco during my next trip there. This is the first bag I owned where I felt I probably need to upgrade my equipment in order to be worthy enough to own this beautiful bag 😉

    • This bag would be perfect for SF, you’d have a crowd following you in no time. And why not upgrade its contents, it’s what photography is all about and the pictures will be so much better.

  5. I also do not like tall thin bags. Just wondering if it would hold an OMD and 6 lenses?

    • I like having too many bags to shell out 300+ dollars for a single bag.
      My tall skinnier messenger style bag is used exclusively as carry-on. It houses my photo gear, electronics, and wallet.
      I take 2 smaller bags that cover different gear configurations. These get stuffed with clothing and take up very little room in my other carry-on or checked luggage.
      And I have others too…
      Different strokes for different folks…

      ps. If anyone tries my system its a good idea not to stuff the smaller bags with dirty clothing on the return flight. 😉

  6. I don’t believe I have ever seen so much stroking of a camera bag lifetime! You do love the tactile quality of the top, I do believe!
