      It's cute....but needs improvements.

      I want to love this bag but using it as a function camera bag as a professional there are some major flaws. The first is that as everyone states, you can't see inside the bag because the inner lining and basket are black. Second, I can't use the bag if I'm on a shoot where the ground would be even the slightest bit wet because the bottom is made of canvas and not leather. Third, the canvas isn't waxed, so the bag isn't even water resistant. I would expect every camera bag to have protection against the elements due to the price of gear. If you actually fill this bag up to it's potential with gear, it's waaaay too heavy to be a messenger bag. I carried it around Europe for two weeks with only one dslr body, a 35mm, and an 85mm and it truly became agony after only a few hours. I'm sad to say that this bag sits in the closet 95% of the time due to all of these reasons. I sometimes take it to meetings with clients where it will only hold my iPad and an album or two, it's truly better off as a regular everyday messenger bag. I really wish that they would make this style of bag in a waxed canvas backpack with a lighter lining.

      Love but missing components

      This bag is beautiful! The mix of the canvas with leather and the color is undeniable. But the inside literally is like a giant hole. There’s no slip pockets or anything. Even tho there are the few on the outside of the bag it really leaves it as a giant hole. I think if you depend on those couple of pockets inside a bag you won’t want this one. I had to return it.

      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!

      I bought a camera bag ( her 3rd one) for our 27th wedding anniversary. She absolutely loves it! Best gift ever. Going to be hard to top next year!

      Thank you

      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.
