ONA Bags introduces the Nylon Bowery!
The Nylon Bowery is handcrafted from premium nylon and features full-grain leather accents and brass hardware. Highly durable and water-resistant, the Nylon Bowery is also ONA’s lightest bag ever, weighing less than a pound without the strap. It features five exterior pockets, an interior padded with closed-cell foam, and removable inserts. The bag retails for $169 and is available at www.onabags.com.
From Steve: You can see my original Bowery Bag review HERE.
I see the ‘new’ Bowery is just like my old Bowery that uses a quick release metal buckle that will smack your camera every time you pull it out of the bag. Unless you use both hands.
This is the only camera bag I have ever come across that can actually damage your camera!
Surely if your other hand is doing something so important that it can’t assist (but how many of us really take a camera out of any bag one handed?) you can just tuck the flap and buckle against your body whilst taking the camera out.
I got one of these as a present ages ago and use it all the time without any issues. As someone points out below though they are a bit pricey. I like them though.
Hmm…not often that you see the word ‘handcrafted’ and ‘nylon’ in the same sentence…
Can’t remember seeing a lot of bags looking better than the bowery. I’d say just make sure whatever you bring fits in there.
I own the bowery bag and it is way overpriced. Even for $169, you have many choices.
I appreciate your unexpected reaction. I don’t own this bag, so it seems it might be good to remember that looks can be deceiving. Thanks.
