Jo Totes Harbourside Review

The awesome company Jo Totes sent me over their newest camera bag "The Harbourside" to review and share my thoughts about it! I'm so excited about this bag! So I got this bag in the Navy color. It also is available in Black. Both are beautiful but I love the navy!! Both colors are made with weather resistant canvas and high quality leather. The navy is trimmed with beautiful tan leather. 




When the bag arrived it came in the standard Jo Totes dust bag which is awesome to keep your bag safe when you aren't using it! I opened it up and immediately realized how beautiful this bag is! The Navy and tan together is just gorgeous! This is a large, messenger style bag but has an adjustable strap so it can be worn cross-body or on the shoulder which is how I like it. And there is a shoulder pad to help keep it comfortable on your shoulder. I've only used it for a short time but I don't find it to be uncomfortable to wear even though it's a larger bag. 






The pockets on this bag are amazing!! Seriously you can hold so much stuff in this bag!!! The more I looked at it and as I was packing it with my gear I was just amazed at all the pockets I kept discovering! It has the middle section for holding your camera equipment. I shoot with a mirrorless full frame camera so it's a little smaller then Nikon and Canon full frame cameras. But this bag has plenty of room for any size DSLRs. Plus 3 lenses!! This section has dual zippers to close it which is great to keep your gear even more protected. There is a front large pocket with another smaller pocket inside!! And then one in the rear that can hold a laptop plus it has numerous other pockets for holding lots of little things like memory cards and purse items. I am a person that loves organizing things and so this bag is perfect for me!  So many pockets to keep all my items organized! Plus a pocket on either side of the bag perfect for my phone and other items.

The bag closes with a flap that has two clasps. So these might get easier to use as time goes on but right now they were kind of difficult to open fast so during sessions and times I'll be wanting to get things in and out of the bag quickly, I'll be leaving them unclasped with just the flap laying over. But at the same time I like that they are very secure so when I am not getting in and out of the bag and I clasp the bag shut I know that all my gear is very secure and protected! Also each clasp is covered by a flap made with the tan leather which I really like. Makes the bag very stylish.







I'm really looking forward to using this bag more! It's a great bag to protect your gear, hold lots of items and look gorgeous at the same time!! I definitely recommend it! Be sure to visit JoTotes.com to get your own Harbourside Camera Bag and to see more details about this amazing bag!
