Cravar Rana Series Premium Leather Camera Bags

Cravar Rana Series Premium Leather Camera Bags:

There are a lot of great choices these days, if you want a leather bag for your camera gear.  We all know companies like ONA, and Oberwerth for example.  Now, there is another manufacturer entering the leather bag world: Cravar.  Cravar has been making all types of premium leather goods, and now with their new Rana Series, they are specifically targeting photographers.  From the looks of the features, quality of materials, and price, these bags are definitely aiming to impress.  Cravar has four sizes to choose from, and I will reviewing one shortly (I can’t wait!).  For now, here’s some info on them, and of course, some press photos.  You should also take a look at their Kickstarter campaign.

So, I’m going to give you some general info, and go into more detail when I write my review.  As I said before, they come in four sizes: the Rana 7, 10, 13,  and 15. The four sizes that Cravar has released should definitely satisfy a broad range of needs.  Here are features that all Rana bags have in common:
