ONA Chelsea Camera Bag (Giveaway)

ONA recently wrote to me to ask if I was interested in reviewing and giving away a new camera bag they were coming out with. I did the same for their Brooklyn camera bag (which I still use and love), so I agreed. They sent over their newest, the Chelsea camera bag in cognac leather.

If I’m going out with my big camera in tow, I’m not going to carry a camera bag and a separate purse. With my other bags, I have to pare down a bit, but the Chelsea fits everything I usually carry, plus my camera with a small lens attached and two additional large lenses. I also like the classic, feminine shape and gold hardware.
