It doesn't matter if you're an amateur or professional, anyone with a nice camera needs a bag to protect their lenses — and it helps if it looks good, too. There are now so many quality bags on the market, it's hard to choose. Whether you want customizable organization, extra protection, or the kind of features that help you get that pro-level shot with your DSLR, you can get it. Sure, you still might need some practice on that end, but these 11 bags are a good place to start.
Timbuk2's Snoop Camera Messenger
Timbuk2's Snoop bag is a two-for-one steal: The 2.6-pound messenger has all the important separate storage for your lenses, cameras, and accessories, but it also includes some extra perks. The San-Francisco-based company created straps for a tripod on the bottom of the bag and a front pocket with a side zipper for your phone or another device that's protected from the elements, but still accessible without opening everything up again. Best of all, the interior compartment comes out, so it can easily switch into a classic messenger when you're off-duty.
