Warsaw-based custom bag makers Dyed in the Wool just released a new handlebar-mounted camera bag that looks like a promising option for hauling a camera on your bike. With enough room for a full-size DSLR and an extra lens, the Dyed in the Wool Camera Bag shares some similarities with the XL Bar Bag we’re currently testing, but comes in a much more compact 16 x 25 x 15 cm (5.8 x 9.8 x 5.9 inch) size.
The new roll-top Dyed in the Wool Camera Bag is available in an X-Pac (pictured here) or Dyneema construction and is built with HDPE and HD foam throughout the base and sides to keep your precious cargo safe. Inside, there’s an internal padded divider for added protection and organization, plus a fluorescent interior lining to keep items from getting lost at the bottom of the bag. Around the outside, MOLLE webbing provides several mounting positions, D-rings allow for attaching a shoulder strap to use it as a shoulder bag, and an upper flap offers a small pocket for storing essentials. The bag uses a Voile strap attachment system, and a shock cord around the head tube to keep it from bouncing around.
The Camera Bag isn’t on Dyed in the Wool’s website just yet, but they’re currently taking orders via email. The price for the Dyneema version is €235 ($275 USD) in X-Pac. You can browse the small brand’s full range of other products at DyedintheWool.eu or place an order for a Camera Bag via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for more on the new Camera Bag as we’re hoping to get one in for testing soon…
