Mercator Camera Backpack

Tharp Camera Messenger Bag

The team at Cecilia has outfitted photographers for five generations; in fact, the legacy of this family-run business dates all the way back to 1848, less than a decade after the introduction of the camera itself. This year, Cecilia has launched a brand new line of bags specifically designed for photographers and explorers on-the-go.

The messenger bags and backpacks, fashioned from water-resistant cotton twill or full-grain cowhide, premiered at the Photo Plus Expo consumer photography show in New York City in late October, and the first shipments went out earlier this month. For a limited time, the bags are available for pre-order at 20% off.

Cecilia Founder Michael Fleisch explains, “We began the design and planning process several months ago and started sourcing the finest production materials worldwide.” In addition to drawing on more than a century and a half of experience, Cecilia designers consulted with photo industry insiders to create these lightweight bags. Since they were created with adventurous souls in mind, each bag shares its name with a famous cartographer.

As with all Cecilia products, these backpacks and bags are both sleek and durable, designed to withstand rugged terrain while keeping your equipment safe and sound. They’ll house both mirrorless and DSLR cameras, with special compartments for all your accessories. Owners of these camera bags can customize the dividers according their their specific needs, while airflow cooling and molded EVA foam padding help ensure a successful photo trip.

Cecilia has thought of everything from rain covers to compartments for your laptop and tripod. Wearers can access all their gear quickly with magnetic closures or choose zippers for extra security. In addition to the backpacks and messenger bags, Cecilia has also released a line of SD Memory Card Wallets. Browse the whole collection here.
