The need to carry a laptop, a DSLR and a series of lenses poses a unique set of challenges – and as a result, most people end up carrying two bags. Ona is an American company seeking to solve this problem – they produce high-end bags for photographers from premium materials, and their Union Street series of bags are designed to be as compact as possible, while still fitting a 15″ laptop, a DSLR and three lenses.
Ona make the Union Street in four colour choices and from two materials – leather or waxed canvas. Each bag is handmade and uses brass hardware, they also have removable and adjustable padded sections so the bag can be modified to suit your needs.
