Shoulder Bags

Shoulder bags, commonly also referred to as messenger bags, are one of the most popular types of bags for photographers. Worn cross-body, with a strap slung over one shoulder, a good shoulder bag generally has a fairly slim profile and a top-loading opening for quick access to gear. Like all things in camera gear, it’s a trade-off – backpacks can be carried more comfortably with heavy loads, but shoulder bags make the photographer more agile and much quicker on the draw with their camera.
