{winner announced} Copper River Bag Co.

The winner of the amazing leather bag from Copper River Bag Company is ……..

Congratulations, Mrs. Steele!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are a couple of things that make me squeal in delight … one is going home to Kentucky and the other is an opportunity to review a Copper River Bag Co. camera bag and give it away to a lucky blog reader. That’s right, as much as I want to keep this beauty, one of *Y-O-U* will be the proud owner of this beautifully crafted, hand-stitched leather camera bag with an adjustable leather shoulder strap and padded insert.

Before I even opened the box, I could smell the rich leather. The aroma was divine. It was everything good and pleasurable all rolled into one. Leather always reminds me of rugged cowboys and horses, and soft, luxurious comfort. Lucky for me, I have a rugged cowboy,
a loveable horse, and soft leather furniture. We also have a barn and cattle trailer that make for great backdrops for a fabulous leather bag! Blue gave this bag his smell test … but was disappointed when he realized no treats were inside.

If you prefer a run of the mill, plain Jane, BORING bag for your camera, keep looking. Copper River is NOT boring!!!!!! They are not plain and they’re certainly not vanilla. They are, however, perfectly “imperfect” and made to order right here in the U.S.A. I think the scuff marks enhance the bag’s character. After waiting two weeks for this bag to arrive, I knew it was created with talented hands of someone in Nevada City, California. Visit their website to watch craftsmen measure, cut, sew, and assemble the leather goods.

Besides the incredible craftsmanship and durability, this camera bag is the perfect size.
It’s not too small, but not too big either. For review purposes, I placed my Nikon DLSR camera and two lenses inside. They fit perfectly and were protected with the padded insert. There was also room for my Kindle, cell phone, and keys. My friend has an iPad and it fit in a side pocket too. There are pockets inside and out, with plenty of room for most photography equipment and even your iPad or small laptop. Oh, what I would have done to have had this bag in Washington, D.C. a few weeks ago!!!!!

If you’re like me and worry about the safety of your camera and equipment in a bag, no worries. This bag includes three (3) durable brass snaps to ensure the bag will remain closed whether you carry it by the handle (on top) of use the adjustable shoulder strap.

This bag is definitely worth its price tag – less than $150. The fine-quality leather is second to none. It is extremely durable and will only get better with age. As with any leather product, it is water-resistant and will soften over time. Speaking of time, Copper River guarantees all of their products for 100 years. That’s a long time, folks! It means they stand behind everything they sell and believe in their quality.

Entries will be verified before the winner is announced. Participants are limited to ten (10) entries, as described above, and must have a valid email address.

Open to U.S. residents only.

This giveaway ends Sunday, August 5.

For more information about Copper River Bag Co., visit their website, find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

Alright, now enter this contest!!!!! Be sure all qualifying comments are published to this blog post and *GOOD LUCK*!!!!!

    After careful consideration, I think my fav is the No. 14 Mission Camera bag. It’s so beautiful and absolutely…ME!

    Did you know I have a brand new (never used) BAGLESS camera??? I need to practice using it before K’s blackbelt test…unless YOU want to photograph too so I can better pay attention???
