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.
