Vi Vante “Pegasus” is a Dual Flap Camera Bag Offering Security and Style

In need of a sturdy and reliable camera bag that can protect your gear from the elements? The new Vi Vante camera bag promises all that in a lightweight and luxurious leather package.

Vi Vante has been pushing to be at the forefront of luxurious and functional leather camera bags, and their latest offering continues to be a testament to that. Dubbed “Pegasus,” this new leather camera bag features a unique, proprietary dual flap design that promises to protect your gear from inclement weather or any situation that requires an extra secure camera carry. The dual flap system for the Vi Vante Pegasus was developed to address the need for rain cover so photographers would no longer resort to false “weather flaps.” Both flaps, which are held together by magnetic buttons, can be opened as one in normal shooting conditions and can be separated when inclement weather or the need for extra security arises. Simply zip the inner flap to secure the contents of your camera bag. The leather also has some water-repellent treatment that promises to withstand the rain and minor splashes.

Pompidoo is known for producing some great and stylish camera bags for women but now the company is out with its first shoulder tote made for men called the Amsterdam. On the outside the tall shoulder bag is made of premium aged and distressed leather that they’re touting as tough yet trendy.

While the bag looks completely pedestrian from the outside it’s made to carry all your photography gear including a DSLR with a lens plus one to two other lenses or flashes. There’s also room for a tablet or small laptop, cellphone, wallet, memory cards and your other personal knick·knacks.

The interior also features a XRDExtreme Impact Protection foam lining that’s designed to freeze and absorb 90% of the impact energy when dropped. When full stocked the Amsterdam bag weighs an overall 8.82lbs, so it’s just edging on the line of being uncomfortable for one shoulder.

The Amsterdam bag is available now in multiple colors including wet asphalt, aged-looking brown, and shabby beige for $380.10 directly from Pompidoo. If you’re still on the fence about the new bag check past the break for a few more images of this handsome bag.
