Hooray! I’m so excited by this giveaway. A little while ago the lovely Pearl of Lei Momi contacted me and asked if I’d like to try out one of her gorgeous new camera bags. I was so excited when it arrived and I couldn’t wait to get it home from the post office to see if this bag was finally the answer to my camera bag dreams. Indeed it is! Everything about it just works for me and what I need a camera bag for. I can pack it full of all my photo taking gear, or just take my dSLR along with my purse and other everyday essentials and know that my camera is super safe and protected.

This is the “Alice” in Dusty Grey and I LOVE the colour, look and feel of the bag.

It has five little metal feet at the base ensuring your bag stays protected and doesn’t get too scratched and scuffed from being placed on the ground. The metal hardware is strong and sturdy and the bag comes with a removable shoulder strap.

The stitching on the water resistant synthetic leather is of very high quality. I just keep brushing my hand over the bag as I love how it feels.


The inside is made from a soft felt woven fabric that allows the dividers to attach anywhere inside the main compartment. Talk about customisation and making sure the bag works exactly as you’d like it to!
In the photo below all the dividers are attached to the side walls of the main compartment, but with their strong velcro sides it’s easy to customise in here to suit your camera needs!


This is an example of what would fit inside the Alice Lei Momi bag. This is my Canon EOS 7D with a fairly large lens attached. It just sits nice and snug in the bag and using the dividers, I’ve made a couple compartments to the left to house an extra lens (you could fit another one in next to it too!) and my lens hood. 

But there is also enough room for me to fit my purse on top of the camera (or I could change the dividers to make a compartment for purse / phone etc if I wanted to)
The front pocket of the bag has heaps of little pockets for memory cards, business cards, key cards and other odds and ends. I used this for carrying some wipes, tissues and my phone on a recent trip to the park but it also always houses my cleaning cloth, dust blower and dust brush so it is all nice and handy.
The pocket on the inside of the top flap is perfect for my camera’s manual and the self timer remote control. I really like to keep everything together so I can just grab the whole bag and go at a moments notice.
I super love that the whole main compartment has a proper zip closure to make sure your precious belongings don’t just fall out if your bag was to fall off a chair or table. This is a big plus for me, many of the other bags I’ve looked at or tried did not have this and I just don’t feel that my gear is safe without a proper full zip closure.
I have really been loving my Lei Momi Alice bag. It has been perfect for outings and hangs on the pram nicely too. The side pockets are useful (there’s one on each side) and on a trip out at a festival not too long ago I kept our hand sanitizer with in easy reach for the kids!
I love that I can grab it and have all my camera gear out with me, but still have room for my purse and some other things so I only need to have the one hand bag.
