I am a tech and photo junkie. Whether I am traveling across country or across town, if I am leaving the convenience of my home for more than a few hours, packing all of my tech is a must. I do not often leave home without at least one camera and either a tablet or a laptop. I just don’t. I might need to photograph something or do some work — ya never know.
You know that two bag carry-on limit for planes? Yep, I used to regularly break that rule with my roll on, laptop bag, camera and purse. Why yes, it would fit inside if I tried, I just need it on the plane so I took it out. Right… (I am such a rebel!) But not any more. I found one bag to replace my laptop bag, camera bag and purse — one bag. The Epiphanie Clover.
Why Epiphanie Bags
Here’s the thing about camera bags. I had this backward notion that they were all ugly. No offense to my husband, but when I needed a camera bag he went out and bought me a Lowepro. Now, Lowepro bags are fantastically functional. And every (male) professional photographer he knows carries them. But they are solid black and bulky. I wanted color and sleek. Not to mention that there is no place for my stuff in the Lowepro, just my camera equipment.
Google searching lead me to Epiphanie, and after taking my new Epiphanie Clover bag on two plane trips and countless day trips I am hooked. I even know which Epiphanie bag I want next because I totally want an army of Epiphanie bags for different occasions/outfits!
Designed by a female photographer, Epiphanie bags are designed to look like a beautiful purse with the protection of a traditional camera bag. Available in a variety of styles and bright colors they are beautiful bags that happen to hold everything I need, while keeping it safe.
Pretty and functional – a perfect combo!
Meet the Epiphanie Clover
While there are a number of styles and designs to choose from, the Clover won me over when I realized that it was big enough to carry my 15 inch Macbook Pro along with my Nikon DSLR and more. No more laptop bag and purse (with my camera shoved in), the Clover holds everything I need.
Full of flexibility, the dividers inside the bag are velcro so they can be removed and repositioned to fit your stuff. Because I generally only travel with one additional lens, I usually keep one of the inserts at home. Customizing the bag for my needs.
What’s Inside My Epiphanie Clover?
I am a compulsive over packer who cannot stand to get somewhere and realized I don’t have something I need. I adore the Epiphanie Clover because it has room for everything. Let’s look inside my bag from a recent trip.
- 15 inch Macbook Pro
- Macbook charger (missing from pic below)
- Nikon DSLR
- Extra lens
- Sony Cybershot
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- iWalk portable charger
- My Vera Bradley with makeup, girly things, etc.
- Granola bar
- Captain Barnacles (I take pics of him everywhere I travel for my girls)
- Business cards
- Dolce Gabbana Aviators
Even packed to the brim with everything I could possibly need (and then some). The Epiphanie Clover is cute and stylish – I lost track of the number of compliments I received on the bag both from those who knew it’s functionality and random strangers in the airport who just liked the look of the bag.
If you are in the market for a camera/laptop bag/purse in one, the Epiphanie Clover is a must. (And oh my gosh, how cute is the camera key chain – also from Epiphanie!)
I am so excited that one lucky reader will receive an Epiphanie bag of their choice! (Squee!!!)
