Koolertron Waterproof Vintage women's bag is a great option among leather bags for photographers. The fact is that it is made of special material, which does not require special care, like genuine leather.
At the same time the material is very dense, it is not wrinkled, therefore your equipment will always be safe. In my opinion, the price of this model corresponds to the quality. This is not a cheap option from the nearest store, but it is not a designer thing.

Lei Momi Women Bag is one of the best and most popular products in our list. The bag is in demand by professional photographers as well as women, who accidentally came across it.
Probably every woman will pay attention to this cute and creative item. As a rule, photographers want their bags to perform basic functions. But why can't we combine unique design and functionality?
Compiling this list, I paid attention only to interesting examples that are not like ordinary bags. Lei Momi Alice from a famous brand is one of the best bags for women.
Lei Momi Women Bag has several additional straps that allow you to use it in different ways (photography, traveling, walking). In spite of all the advantages listed above, I cannot say that the bag fits many items.
CONSTRUCTION/DURABILITY - this is one of the most important characteristics of any bags for photo equipment. Both professionals and amateurs want their bags to be well designed and durable.
APPEARENCE – photographers constantly deal with beautiful things, so this factor must be taken into account in the review. No doubt, preference will be given to luxury bags and not gray and boring models.
DESIGN – the functional factor should definitely be taken into account when selecting bags for women. Is it a specially designed product or a women’s handbag with a section for the camera?
VALUE FOR MONEY – many photographers pay special attention to the price of the proposed bags. Since each lady photographer has her own budget, I focused on those items that most closely match the price-quality ratio.
For example, if you choose a high-quality leather bag, it will be well worth the money you pay.
