I’m not under any delusions here, the reason this sling-type camera bag caught my attention was for the simple fact that Blackstone Bags refers to it as their ‘Urban Quiver’ design. And as a result I had images of myself swinging through trees downtown, whipping out my camera to snap photos of the rich and give them to the poor, in a misguided attempt to bring myself some Robin Hood-esque notoriety. But it turns out the Urban Quiver has some nice features, particularly for those who’ve chosen a life less suburb.

Most notably, the 21-inch long bag has a big flap on top that opens to reveal its entire contents which makes packing away and keeping track of what gear you’ve got stashed a lot easier than with an endless collection of pockets. But when worn that top flap is actually pressed against your back, meaning it’s next to impossible for someone in a crowd to open and abscond with your gear. A large buckle in the middle of the strap allows you to easily remove and clip-on the bag, and there’s a couple of thin accessory pockets on there too allowing you to store phones or other devices you need to access more frequently. At $125 it’s admittedly expensive, but they are designed and manufactured in Portland, if buying locally made products is important to you.
