ONA Camera Bags Buying Guide

Founded by Tracy Foster, ONA (pronounced ō’na) is a stylish brand of handcrafted camera bags, which started a revolution in quality design back in 2010. With the rise of Mirrorless cameras many photographers these days are turning to ONA bags as they seem to be the perfect houses for their daily photography kit.

If you’re looking for a suitable home for your expensive gear, it only makes sense to invest in a superior bag that’s made of either full-grain cowhide leather, closed-cell foam or even waxed cotton canvas. The designer range of bags will not only keep your gear safe and sound but it’s bound to turn heads when you’re ever out and about. We’ve put together this ONA buying guide to help distinguish the differences between the range of bags.

Listed below are simple infographics, which depict the colours, features, price, dimensions, weight and storage space available for each ONA camera bag.

The current range of ONA camera bags can be organised into three main categories, they are:

  • Messenger Bags
  • Backpacks
  • Shoulder Bags

So without any further ado, we’ll point you in the right direction, starting with:

Corey Middleton says:

Got myself the ONA Bowery bag for my gear on day trips. Very impressed with the quality of the materials & finish. The brass is real & not just ‘plated’ putting it into a class of its own.

Lindsay Philp says:

I have the ONA Bowery in field tan canvas. I bought it for my Fujis (XE-2 and X100s). This bag is absolutely perfect especially the fact that it’s water resistant which is a big plus living in England where sudden rain showers prevail. The bag is exceptionally well constructed and has a quality feel to it. I can comfortably fit the gear I need for the day which often includes taking both bodies out with either the WLC or TLC for the X100s or just the XE-2, a couple of lenses, spare batteries, Lee Seven 5 filter system. It’s very comfortable and the strap stays on your shoulder instead of slipping off. It’s small, neat and looks better the more worn it gets! If my environment was more urban, I would have got the antique cognac leather version. Anything I don’t like about it? Mmmm……nope!
