Camera Coats: Bye-Bye Bulky Camera Bag! {Giveaway}

Camera Coats

I really love taking photos with my DSLR camera but I rarely carry it with me when I go out with my son. It’s just very difficult to carry my purse, snack bag and a separate camera bag at the same time!  Sometimes I end up hanging my camera around my neck and just taking it without a camera bag but that’s usually not the best for the camera because it ends up covered with sand, water, food and more. Not good!

Enter the latest cool camera accessory, Camera Coats. These stylish covers wrap around your camera to cover it and protect it, allowing you to tuck your camera into your purse or diaper bag. You can also just cover your camera with a Camera Coat and head to the park without a camera bag, specially if you purchase the water resistant cover.

Camera Coats

Camera coats are made of soft cotton with a fatty layer of padding that keeps your camera safe on the go. They also feature three outside pockets that are wonderful for your SD card, extra battery or lens cap. A sturdy buckle attaches to you own camera strap while you are shooting so you don’t have to put the Camera Coat down.

I absolutely love all of the fabulous designs available on the website. I had a hard time picking just one but I am in love with the Chevron design I picked. The inside of the Camera Coat is super soft and the outside of it wipes clean easily. I also really like the sturdy velcro closure that keeps the camera in place.

Camera Coats

All Camera Coats are carefully made by hand in the USA and they have a size chart to ensure they will fit your specific camera. You can get your Camera Coat online at  www.cameracoats.com.

Win it: One very lucky US/CAN reader will win a Camera Coat (design of their choice). Enter to win via Rafflecopter below. Good Luck!

    I love the Allie Chevron but I wish it were waterproof instead of water repellant. The Green Burlap is really cool too, but if I had to choose one favourite I guess it would be the Mustard Yellow Damask because I like the style, colour and the fact that it is waterproof. Or maybe the Free Spirit Gray… Oh brother, it is so hard to choose!!
