Drop It MODERN Hard Case

Leather Camera Bag

Choosing a camera bag or case is a subjective endeavor, which is why manufacturers offer myriad sizes, styles, and options that encompass an enormous price range. The drop it MODERN Hard Case is a hard-side case that’s heavy on style. Think of it as a modern interpretation of a stylish bag that’s been handed down through generations of photographers.

The MODERN Hard Case is elegantly made and packaged, arriving in a fitted box and a cotton bag. It’s available in black or brown leather, has all metal hardware with push-button closure, an adjustable canvas shoulder strap with leather pad, and an adjustable waist strap. The interior is padded corduroy and has a divider for a tablet device, and two vertical dividers for your camera, lenses, flash, or other equipment. All dividers are removable, but there’s minimal adjustment between the dividers due to the placement of the hook-and-loop strip on the inside of the case. There are no horizontal dividers, so you have to stack your gear such as small lenses, which isn’t ideal. That’s too bad considering the depth of the bag.

Built into the inside of the top are a series of elastic pockets and straps that hold up to six CompactFlash cards; two extra batteries; and a lens cap, cleaning cloth, etc. There’s an elastic pocket sewn into the inside of the bag that holds a smartphone, passport, etc.

The MODERN Hard Case is a bag that’s at home in urban settings and when traveling to chic destinations. It will protect your camera and gear with style. I wouldn’t use it on camping trips or at the racetrack, but that’s not really the point.
