Metal working, like sculpting, is an art form. It involves precision, care, and great attention to detail. Here, we show you how we use precision manufacturing processes and quality materials to sculpt our art. Other bag makers won't show this to you, because they can't. Nobody obsesses over details the way we do.

The Locking Mechanism

Inspired by film-advance levers from the film era, we wanted to bring back an action that has been sorely missed in the digital age. As with manual cars, the film advance lever is becoming a thing of past. Call us sentimental, but a smooth, fully mechanical lever crank puts a big smile on our faces

This is the smoothest, quietest, most elegant single-handed locking mechanism found on a camera bag

Our patent pending locking mechanism is the smoothest, quietest, most elegant locking mechanism found on a camera bag. The motion is precise, the mechanism is solid, and the gentle click is reassuring. There’s nothing quite like a bit of old-school mechanics.

Carved from a solid piece of brass for strength, the mechanism is made up of 12 precise components and is assembled by hand. It is an intricate and beautiful contraption.

Beautiful in any situation
The assembled brass components are then sanded down and hand polished before they are sent for electroplating, resulting in a brilliant mirror finish.

The Lens Cap Mount
 
We all have a love/hate relationship with lens caps. You need it to protect your lens, but it likes to go missing. The patent pending lens cap mount is a safe-haven for your lens caps.  It is simple to use, striking to look at, and beautifully integrated into the camera bag. 
The lens cap mount holds 77mm, 72mm, 67mm, 62mm, 58mm, 52mm, 49mm, 46mm, 41mm and 37mm lens caps, and can hold up to three lens caps at one time

Milled from a single piece of aluminum. This process ensures that each ring will be perfectly circular, with the added benefits of preventing defects due to cooling issues and moulding inconsistencies.

Each lens cap mount is laser-engraved for the final touch; text around the outer ring, resembling the specifications found on a camera lens.
