Langly Takes Its Camera Bags Off the Back for the First Time, Making Gear More Accessible


Los Angeles, CA—For the first time, Langly Bag Co. is offering two camera bags that are not photo backpacks. The Messenger Tote and the Crossbody camera bags are designed to make gear more accessible.

Langly Messenger Tote

Langly bags have been carried by Nat Geo photographers, as well as U.S. military photojournalists. Inspired by minimalist WW II design, all the bags are weatherproof, padded for comfort, made from leather and have rustproof brass hardware as well as military-grade canvas. Built to withstand the elements, the bags also work for everyday use with removable camera inserts.

Langly Bag Co.

Created by photographer Evan Lane, Langly bags were inspired by the lives of freelance photographers as well as nomadic professionals looking for something to protect their gear with style and ease. After years of searching for the perfect camera bag, photographer Lane decided to take things into his own hands and Langly Bag Co. was born.
