Kelly Moore Chapel Bag
Shown in Burnt Orange but available in multiple colors
A while back when I did my last review of Kelly Moore bags the response was overwhelming, but I hadn’t found time to do another one – until now. What’s more, Kelly has put together a special discount for my readers when you use the discount coupon code RonMart15 when you check out between now and January 31st, 2013. See the end of this article for more details.
This is a great bag that can be used as a stand-alone bag with a handle (shown above), carried with a shoulder strap or mounted as a back pack as shown here:
Inside I’m able to easily store a Canon 5D Mark III with a 24-105mm lens attached (with the hood in the forward position), a 70-200mm lens and a 600EX-RT flash. The dividers can be removed too so you can use this bag for whatever purpose you like. Here’s a view inside:
Here’s a quick video I did to demonstrate how you might use this bag:
Wearing the Chapel Bag
My female readers have reminded me that they enjoy seeing how a bag looks “on”, so I’ve added a few photos here to demonstrate this bag in action on my sweet wife:
As backpack you can attach the top hooks
to the center (as recommend by Kelly)
or on the outside (as shown)
My wife reported the bag to be reasonably comfortable even though it had heavy gear in it.
She did wish for more cushion on the straps like you’d find on a Think Tank Photo bag.
My wife preferred this bag mounted to the side as the shoulder cushion
made it more comfortable under heavy load
Kelly Moore makes excellent quality bags that feel like super high quality leather, but in fact they are synthetic. This helps to keep the price reasonable, but you’re fingers and nose will never tell the difference! In fact, it makes me wonder if some designer brands are using synthetics too!
Kelly offers a great variety of styles and colors, so go check out her web site to learn more!
NOTE: In this first image of this review I’ve tried to capture the color of this bag as I see it. The images on Kelly Moore Bag’s web site seem darker than what it looks to my eyes in real life.
Special Offer (EXPIRES Jan 31, 2013)
You can start enjoying the discount now ($15 at the time of this writing) until January 31, 2013 and then this offer is gone for good! You MUST CLICK THIS LINK and then enter in the code found above on Kelly Moore Bag's website when you check out.
If you can’t find your favorite bag in stock on the Kelly Moore web site, then check to see if you can find it at Adorama’s Kelly Moore Bag Store. It will cost you a little more, but it’s better than back order!
