    I love my Chocolate Betsy.The bag comes with two straps - one shorter one (unadjustable length) for a bag that lands around the waist and one longer one (adjustable length) for an over-the-shoulder messenger bag look. The main compartment is lined with velcro and three padded dividers allow for customizeable sub-compartments. I divided my bag into three parts: one for my DSLR with sizeable lens attached, the second for an extra lens and hood, and the third for personal items such as wallet, cell phone, hair brush, etc... The extra pocket advertised as the pocket for MacBook Air or MacBook Pro is actually part of the main compartment, just behind the velcro-lined padded divider wall. The bottom/floor of the camera compartment and the MacBook compartment is shared. In a way that is good, becuase the divider between these pockets allows for a bit of movement/flexibility, but in a way that's not so good, because I was hoping that these two pockets would be completely isolated, so any items that I put in the MacBook pocket couldn't shift and scratch my camera or lenses. I don't expect this to happen easily, but I'll have to be extra careful. In addition there are two external zipper pockets (one in the flap/ "lid" and one on the side that lands against the side of the body). Items stored in those pockets would have to be fairly flat, but the pockets are quite large. The two visible pockets on the front of the bag close with a magnet. These are nice for accessories like a lens cleaning cloth. I would be a bit afraid to store anything valuable in these, however, because they could be easily accessible to pick-pockets. The main compartment would be safe, however, because in addition to the flap there is a zipper that closes the main compartment/MacBook compartment.Overall I'm very pleased. I love that this bag is feminine and doesn't look like the traditional, bulky camera bag. The quality of the bag is superb, the materials are nice, and the construction is sturdy. Just beware that it is not a small bag, it is quite sizeable - I would compare it to a messenger bag in size. For those who are looking for a small purse, I'd look elsewhere. For those who need a practical, versatile bag (like me!), this is the one!

    I was so excited to get this bag in the mail today, but when I started to put my gear into it, I was very disappointed with the size. It would be a great camera bag/day bag only, but I bought this to take to also carry my MacBook. I'm a graduate student studying photography and I also teach photography classes, so carrying my laptop, DSLR, lenses, etc. is a necessity. Unfortunately, once you get the laptop in there it's hard to fit the camera. It would probably work better if I removed the lens, but I like to keep the camera handy with a lens already attached.
    The front pockets are also very small. It will fit my iPhone 4, but not much else. I'm also not sure how I would utilize the pocket in the flap. I thought my planner/notebook might fit in there, but it does not. Maybe I wanted too much from this bag, but it looks like I'll be sending it back. Too bad because it's very stylist/sophisticated and appears well made. Great for someone who doesn't need to carry a lot of gear all the time.

    Cute travel bag!

    Comments about Betsy Camera Bag (Black):

    I really like the size of this bag and if my husband holds it it doesn't look to girly! I wish I looked at the metal closer before ordering. I thought it was silver by the picture but it like a brass color. Nothing a little paint can't fix. Other than that I would totally recommend this bag!!!

      Comments about Betsy Camera Bag (Chocolate):

      I am really loving my new camera bag! It's big enough for my Canon 6D and two lenses as well as my wallet. It gets a little cramped when I put in my laptop though. At first it was very stiff and hard to get things in and out...but after some use it's easier to access my camera. I wish it had a place for SD cards...but oh well. This is my "first" camera bag (I used a backpack for a while) and I'm loving it. Great size too!

      Great bag! I LOVE how deep it is... previous bags seemed shallow and like my gear would slip out during a shoot.

      This bag is deep and secure with the top flap - feels safe to quickly change lenses.

              I use this bag as my day to day carry-all. It fits my lap top, note book, files, camera + lenses, + all my purse stuff (Chargers, hard drives, lip stick Advil..) It looks very professional and keeps its shape. Love all the pockets and easy access to my gear! Definitely worth the money.

              Comments about Betsy Camera Bag (Black):

              This gear bag is super and I use it to carry my camera, laptop, and tablet to school. Prior to this I was carrying numerous bags to school and now I can fit it in one. It is also very stylish. I love the other colors but picked the black so I could also use it on photo shoots without drawing undo attention to myself.

                Comments about Betsy Camera Bag (Chocolate):

                I have used this a few times since I got it. My initial reaction was that it looked bigger than I expected. However, after using it, it is the perfect size. The computer pocket is not actually big enough for my 15" macbook Pro (along with camera equipment) but it is perfect for my iPad air 2. I wanted one that had separate dividers and I like how this one has Velcro dividers. The velcro is actually pretty sturdy and I can change the configuration depending on what I am bringing. I used it the other day to put both my mirrorless camera and old film camera in because I was shooting with both. It still had a space for my wallet and I put my extra betteries etc. in the front pockets. It even fit my small travel tripod in it as well to carry where I was going. With all that stuff over my shoulder I thought it would be realy heavy, but it distributes the weight well and the cushin on the strap made it all very comfortable, even when I was crouching down. I also think the bag is very cute. I would recommend it.

                  I just received my Betsy Camera Bag (I'm living in Curacao, so it took a while to get it here) but I really love it! The bag has the perfect size, it doesn't weigh to much, which makes it easy to walk around a day. I have my Nikon D7000 with lens and battery grip and 2 other lenses in the bag, and there's still room for extra's. Definitely a must have!

                          Wonderful bag for traveling with camera gear. The design of the bag doesn't broadcast to all around you that you are a tourist carrying expensive camera gear. Lots of storage space for all of the other accessories you need to tote along.

I love the pockets on the front but wish they were bigger. I also wish it had pockets on the sides for keys and phone. It comes with two straps, one for shoulder and one for cross body. It appears to be made of hearty fabric and be very durable. The zipper opens up on one end to make the opening more convenient to get your stuff in and out. This is a great color.

                              This bag is beautiful and very functional. It is a wonderful color and is so soft. The bag comes with two straps but one of the latches was broken. I contacted customer service. The customer service rep was able to contact the manufacturer for a replacement strap so I didn't have to return the bag. Overall I am thrilled with the both product and the service I received from B&H .

                                  This bag has lots of protective space for storing my camera with a 2nd lens as well as all my accessories. I love that I can also fit my wallet, phone and iPad very easily. Previously, I carried a purse AND a small camera bag.
                                  The bag itself is really nice looking and stylish, I love the teal colour. It seems well made and is quite comfortable to wear with the cross body strap.
                                  I haven't found anything I don't like, other than I wish it was real leather, but that would have made it much more expensive.

                                  I bought this bag after what I thought was quite a bit of research. I checked the manufacturer's website and it shows you can get a laptop, an iPad, camera w/lens, two extra lenses and an iPhone. I could not even get my camera with the kit lens, my 100-400 push pull lens and my laptop in it comfortably. Great bag if you don't have to carry a lot. Beautiful color. Just not a lot of room. It also had a strange odor. Which I'm sure would have faded away in time.

                                  Replaced a Kelly Moore bag with Jo Totes Betsy Camera Bag. Kelly Moore's warranty department deemed the six months wear and tear on my her bag to normal wear and tear but was way too ratty for taking to a wedding or a meeting. I have to add that I NEVER put my bag on the ground, so the wear and tear is from brushing up against my coat or people in transit or maybe the chair next to me in a meeting. The review of the Betsy were good, but a few commented on it's large size, and the reviews were not an exaggeration.While the Kelly Moore bag I had to let go seemed to take up space differently, the difference when both bags were place side by side left Kelly Moore's workmanship and quality in the dust. While Betsy is an overstuffed courier bag, it is better crafted, looks less flashy so more invisible in a crowd and shows off the classic good taste of a woman who works with cameras and computer.Inside the bag, the computer fits snugly, and the camera compartment comes with four spacers, so the main section can be custom configured. There are four external compartment, my favourite being the little one in the flap. the front two compartments are about half the size of the Kelly Moore, so it slims down what I have handy access to, and fortunately, fits my iPhone with enough space for the flap to snap.the jury is still out; Jo Totes' Betsy has to stand the test of six months time.

                                      I did not want a typical camera bag, they tend to look manly. So I did a lot of research and found Jo Totes. I really like their style of bags. So glad that I bought this one! The quality is great and it's very spacious. I love my bag!!
