The Collins - Canvas + Leather Convertible Tote

Meet Collins.
Casual cool meets carry-all in this uber versatile and unique tote bag No matter the matter, she is cool calm and collected.

Fill Collins up to the brim or size down and watch how it effortlessly changes size.  Plus our canvas and full grain leather combination gets better with age and will effortlessly wear and outlast all the pieces in your capsule wardrobe.

The Collins also touts serious organizational features; vital for a tote of her stature. The back pocket is our largest, built in wallet on a bag and holds everything you need, from 6 credit card slots, a zipper pocket to hide cash or passport to the mesh pocket for headphones and beyond.  

Two leather front slit pockets make it easy to get your cell-phone or keys in and out while in motion.  Our signature padded dividers keep your lenses, camera, laptop and tablet all in place and protected and with the extra padding on the sides and bottom of the bag, so you don’t need to be too ginger while Collins is en tow.

Great for all day wear because it is light weight and has a dual carry option. Traveling or all day jobs with the Collins is effortless; whether an overnight stay or a carry-on for a long international flight (yes it fits a travel pillow), it’s well built for any jaunt.  The top zipper closure will ensure your stuff doesn’t come spilling out while it’s under the seat in front of you as well.

Made with durable canvas and genuine leather.

**This leather scuffs easily, but we like character and natural markings after our leather has been used.  The canvas color may vary slightly**

Great Bag!

Love the removable divider in The Collins. Holds a camera with a lens attached, charger, and room for another lens. Not too heavy and the cross-body strap is long enough for me. Great neutral color.

Love love love this bag

I love that it looked like and can actually function as a purse. I bought a bag last summer for a trip that I ended up not liking. I hate looking like a tourist when I travel and want to have a bag that holds my dslr, and still has room for my day to day stuff I might need. I came across the Collins bag searching for a purse that I could put a dslr insert into. The grey canvas is beautiful along with the leather. Definitely a bag you should check out.

The real test will be this summer when I’m on a two week trip traveling.

Love this bag!

I love this bag. I’ve had for over a year now and it’s still my favorite. I can fit my telephoto lens, camera with lens and snacks for my kids. If i could only pick one bag this would be it!

LOVE my Collins bag!

I have had my Collins camera bag for a few weeks now, and I am in love. It's definitely on the heavier side, but the support in the strap is unlike any I've had on a crossbody/satchel before, so it's really not that bad. The bag feels hefty, like it's going to really protect your camera/lenses/valuables.

I'd agree with a couple of the reviews that I read before - I wish it had a zip pocket on the inside, and that the inside was a lighter colored material. It's dark and hard to see the inside. Doesn't stop me from loving this bag, though. It's beautiful and very well made.

I also have to remark on their customer service - I had a request just after I placed my order, and they responded very quickly, fulfilling my request. You have a customer for life.

Casual style, great design--wish the lining were not black--Can't see my lenses in the bottom.

I've had this bag for about 9 months now --and what I really like about it is the casual style of the bag. I like that I can fold over the top or have it standing up depending on what I'm carrying inside. My DSLR will fit inside with my 70-200mm lens only by removing the dividers and putting it back body down with lens straight up in the air. The front zip pockets for credit cards/memory cards/cash etc are handy.

What I wish this bag had: I wish there were an interior pocket. And more than anything...I REALLY WISH the lining were not a dark solid color. My lenses etc get absolutely lost in the bottom. Especially a problem because the bag is so deep. A different color or pattern even subdued would be perfect!

Loved until the zipper broke.

I loved this bag. Unfortunately, the zipper jammed at the worst time, at the airport. I had to break the zipper, which also ripped the interior lining, to retrieve my boarding pass. I contacted Kelly Moore Bag hoping to find out if I could simply get a new zipper. However, customer service wasn’t able to help me until I found my receipt. Which, of course, I couldn’t. So, I tried removing the zipper and interior myself, thinking I could have it repaired by a professional. But then I found shredded plastic at the bottom of the bag. I’m guessing that this was supposed to be the waterproof lining. So, even if I had the bag repaired, it wouldn’t provide much protection now. And, why had it deteriorated? I’ve emailed Kelly Moore Bag a few times. The responses are always warm and friendly but they can’t help because I can’t find the receipt. All that to say, if I had the money, I might be tempted to purchase another Collins. That’s how much the bag did work for me...while it worked. So, if you’re making a purchase, keep the receipt because anything can happen.

Best bag I’ve purchased so far!

I’m so in love with my new Collins! It’s exactly the right size for me! I’m a minimal photographer so I wanted a sturdy bag that protected my gear but gave me room to carry essentials daily. This bag is not heavy to me totally protects my camera and lenses! I’m giving this bag a 5 no matter what but I do wish to be picky and say I’d like one more inside pocket and the liner to be light colored as when you look inside it’s dark so it can be a slight challenge shifting around. But what girl doesn’t just dig and hope for the best am I right? Love it!
