    ONA ONA5-028TN-2 reviews

    Berlin II Camera Messenger Bag (Bourbon) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good camera bag. I use the Berlin II for my Leica M240, a couple of lenses, and an iPad. First of all, the size is a tad small. It could be about an inch or two wider. That would give it a little more room, but not so much to be cumbersome. The strap is VERY long. I am about average size and build and the strap is cinched up to where the buckle is next to the shoulder strap pad. I have to wear the strap across my body because if I carry it on just one shoulder, it hangs way too low. The bag is well constructed and seems to be very durable. The leather is a bit stiff, but once it breaks in, should have a great vintage look. The case is well padded and should offer a good degree of protection for gear inside.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from May be a bit small The bag is nice. But the size is a bit small (consider I am using it with a Fuji X series but not Leica) The 2 side pocket is small, hardly even insert an mobile photo, unable to take my sunglass with hard case. The front pocket is also small to insert all the stuff I take with a day's shooting. The back pocket unable to take an A4 magazine. Scratch easily shown on the leather surface, but I think it should consider it add character to the bag but not a defect. If you can accept the size, then it is a very good bag. May be I will use it with a point and shoot camera (Leica Q or T or X) but not a X-Pro 1 with 2-3 lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Bag Is almost perfect for my M system. Beautiful. The right size. Very nice leather and made to last. Things to note are the shoulder straps are so very long, it's made more for someone 6 feet tall or more. I like to wear mine, being 5 foot 6, at the hip or higher so had to major adjust the straps, otherwise was at my knees. This meant the shoulder protector piece could not be adjusted to my shoulder as wouldn't go over the metal hardware on the strap and had to cut it off as then became useless weight. And that is another thing to note on all leather bags, they are so very heavy. I flip flop between this and cloth bags. The Ona looks better. I am not so crazy about the double metal fasteners. Prefer the type that button in to these.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Attractive but needs engineering work The aesthetic design of the ONA Berlin II is great. It is a bag that I wouldn't hesitate carrying around. I haven't yet had it long enough to judge the quality of the workmanship but it feels rugged and rubble and I think that the leather should hold up over the long run. However, I think that they need to revamp the design a little bit and come out with an ONA Berlin III. Here are some of my complaints: 1) The side pockets too small for water bottle, umbrella, or sunglasses in hard case. What were they intended for? 2) The interior pockets in the front section are too small for the things that I think should be in a camera bag my personal examples are: - 52mm filter case - I tend to carry a polarization filter around for when the water is glaring, when I want to shoot through glass and there is a reflection, or when the sky just isn't blue enough. - X-rite color checker - Moleskin pocket notebook 3) No key hook in the front section - this would be nice. Put this on the side of the zipper which opens last, you don't want to lose your keys with a partially closed zipper and you don't need your keys very frequently. 4) Pen slots on the wrong end of the zipper. These are where the key hook should be. These are accessed often. Especially the pen like lens brush that I almost always carry. 5) Instead of making the pockets inside the front section wide enough they have a tiny pocket which might be for an SD card. I can't imagine anything else fitting. If they have extra space - elastic loops for batteries or a pocket knife might be nice. 6) The strap is too long for me. This puts the shoulder pad on the lower part of my shoulder blade and the buckle just past the apex of my shoulder. I might get this fixed. In spite of all of that, I kind of like the bag. I might go to a shoe maker/luggage and leather shop and see if they can do a couple of simple mods like shorten the strap. I think that the size of the side pockets are so integral to the design that I don't think that can be changed. I fit a very small water bottle in there with great force and hope that in time the leather will probably stretch. Unfortunately, the useless of the side pockets will probably drive me to keep a look out for another bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Bag This bag is wonderfully crafted and a perfect fit for an M system. This will wear perfectly over time. The perfect fit for a minimalist system that can be carried and not look like you are carrying an M system around...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed I was really looking forward to this bag, designed for the M system. Well let me just say my M system, camera and 3 lenses disappeared into the bag. The size of the interior is so big that my M type 240 just got lost, and is hard to retrieve when you need it. Also the leather is way to stiff for a bag in this price range. The handel is also uncomfortable to hold, stiff and too wide. I have a canvas bag from this company that I just love and thought I would get the larger leather version when I need to Cary more equipment. Bummer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, good looking, and well made. This is a good size for a Leica M body with lens attached, and a couple of other lenses. There would still be room for one more lens or spare battery, filters etc. in the main compartment if needed. It can also take an iPad internally. The bag is quite deep so there is room on top of the camera equipment for things like a light rain jacket or hat or gloves. The zippered compartment has sections for phones, SD cards, pens and is secure enough to put tickets, currency and passports into. The external rear pocket is fine for maps, timetables etc. but the side pockets are quite tight (are getting somewhat easier with use) and can take a small notebook but are not big enough for say, a sunglasses case. The bag is made of thick very sturdy leather and is quite stiff. It may loosen up with use however, but I think it is somewhat over built and as a result is a bit heavier than it needs to be. Both straps are also quite thick and will likely never break. The hand carry strap is removable, which I like. The fixed shoulder strap is quite long I am 6 ft tall and wear the bag cross body, but even so, the strap is more than long enough. If you are a short person, or wear a bag on one shoulder you may find that the adjustment buckle interferes with the shoulder pad (not removable) as you run out of adjustment room. It would be an easy modification for a leather repair person to shorten the strap, if that is necessary in your case. One of the things I like about the bag is that I can use it as a aircraft cabin bag to carry the assorted stuff that needs to go with you while flying (iPad, head-set, Phone, GPS for destination, passport, money etc) while my camera gear is in a wheeled bag in the overhead compartment. Then when I unpack, I can then use the bag for its intended purpose. Time will tell how much use this bag gets, but so far things look promising.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best carriage for Leica Weighs a bit, which I knew from reviews and also by holding it in the B&H store, but my Leica M10 with 1-2 additional lenses deserves the best bag to keep them safe. An ipad pro 10,5 also fits neatly together with small earphones and some glasses, which makes the whole little thing an excellent and compact travel companion, especially for bringing on an airplane. Like it. A lot.
