New HoldFast Bag Lets You Tote Around Your Camera Inside Bison Skin

HoldFast Gear makes gear for photographers that you won’t really find from other companies. Last year one of their big products was the MoneyMaker, a suspenders-style leather camera strap that looks like it popped out of an old detective film.

Today the company added a new eye-catching product to its lineup: the Bison Tote. It’s a tote bag that’s made out of bison hide.

Each bag is hand-assembled by the designer, HoldFast founder and photographer Matthew Swaggart.

The bags feature a giant inside pocket and a slim outside pocket for carrying around your stuff without compartmentalizing it. It fits a 15-inch laptop, your smaller electronics, your camera, and all the small items you need by your side over the course of a day.

While the bag doesn’t come with standard camera bag dividers or padding by default, Swaggart is planning to release an insert that will make the bag work as a proper camera bag for your camera(s) and lenses.

The bag will be available in both black or mahogany American Bison hide, and measures 14x4x11 in dimensions. They cost $220 a piece over on HoldFast.
