Self-Contained Protection

When you are entrusting your beloved SLR to a new camera bag you need to be confident it's in safe hands.  

For that reason the GEM SLR bag takes advantage of an extra thick 10mm padding on all sides, top and bottom and for added protection, a padded accessories pocket.  

Protection as standard, whether it be from constant use by the photographic professional or the occasional use around the home.

Movement - No longer an issue

Nobody wants their precious SLR to be sliding around in an ill-fitting camera bag.  

This bag features two positional straps which literally secure your camera in position, taking the weight of your camera, and minimising movement.

Attention to detail

How would you feel if the screen of your much loved camera was scratched by a badly placed zip?  

Here at GEM bags attention to detail is something we believe in, thats why we have screen protector flaps on internal zips. A little detail that could make a big difference.

Never miss a shot again!

You wait for that all important shot, you fumble for your camera, and in a flash the moment has passed.  

With its QUICKDRAW top loading, lens first feature, your camera is now easier to access than ever before. Missing that moment is a thing of the past with GEM

Many ways to carry

To make the bag easy to transport, a dedicated top carrying handle is provided meaning you can just grab and go.  

There are also many carry options, with the adjustable shoulder strap or fitted belt loop, you will never be that far from your all important opportunity to snap that picture.


You are aware that your camera can become useless without vital accessories such as spare memory cards or batteries.
These accessories need of the same protection as your camera. 

so as standard your SLR camera bag comes with a zipped and padded accessory pouch, ideal for those consumables you just cant be without.  

Do you need more storage space?
As you would expect. There is a protected net compartment under the top lid and side netted storage areas boosting the bags capacity.


At GEM bags we do not stop there! The SLR bag also boasts a SECRET compartment behind the belt loop.  

Ideal for valuables such as cash, passports or tickets.

 Mega fast delivery and well packaged. The bag itself is just what I was looking for, something not to big that I could wear cross my body. My camera fits perfectly and is well protected. Also lots of little pockets for other bits. I would recommend this anyone who didn\'t want a big bulky camera bag.

 I love this camera bag! A perfect size for my Nikon D5000 plus 24-85 zoom, it is small and light but extremely well made with decent, adjustable padding and sturdy buckles and closures. It is an unflashy, low key bag which does not scream MUG ME! (very important for street photography out and about in dodgy areas of London). The pockets are extremely well thought out - I can stuff this with memory cards, spare batteries, lens cleaner, chargers, everything I need for a day of shooting - it's capacity for small accessories is astonishing. The varied and many pockets make organising your stuff convenient and easy - no rooting about in the bottom of a bag for loose bits, it's all stowed securely. The soft, sturdy inner mesh pocket lets you see what's in there at a glance. Pockets are soft and zips are recessed so that nothing sharp or scratchy comes into contact with your kit. Everything feels very well made, carefully thought out and secure. I have trusted this bag on protest marches, on camping trips, as hand luggage when travelling abroad and when photographing boozy birthday parties. It's an absolute joy to use. It won't keep a prolonged downpour out but I have worked in the rain with this and if you stuff the pockets with silica gel sachets your camera won't suffer too much. If you need a small, lightweight, minimal camera bag that you can trust to keep your kit safe and organised look no further.

 I bought this bag for my Fuji Finepix 4500 camera. The camera fits in very easily and theres easily enough room to fit in my Casio Exilim in its case as well. Construction is very sturdy with plenty of adjustable internal padding to hold your camera safe and secure, the finish is to a high standard. Transportation is via either the handle, shoulder strap, or belt loops at the back. You will not go wrong with this very reasonably priced good looking camera bag. Buy it with confidence.
