Too much gear can slow a street photographer down–and that’s why this bag wasn’t designed to hold a whole lot of gear. From the looks of it, I’m not even sure a 13 inch MacBook can fit into here.

It’s got pockets all over in the normal spots, and uses its own shoulder strap. However, it can be used with the MoneyMaker and other accessories from Holdfast.
