Leather goods company Cravar has launched a new range of Rana Series messenger bags, and its attempting to crowdfund the release through Kickstarter. The new series is comprised of four leather messenger bags designed for photographers to use as either a camera bag or an everyday carry. All four bags feature solid brass hardware, a full grain veg-tanned leather exterior, closed-cell foam padding, and an interior made with linen and Sunbrella fabrics.
The Cravar Rana Series is comprised of the Rana 7, Rana 10, Rana 13, and Rana 15 leather messenger bags—each number approximates the bag’s width.
The Rana 15 is the largest of the bunch, and is able to accommodate most 15″ laptops as well as a full-frame DSLR and three lenses or more, depending on the size of said lenses. The bag has an aluminum-reinforced top flap, three vertical and two stack dividers, a luggage handle slot, two front pockets, and one rear pocket.
Similar, but slightly smaller, is the Rana 13 which is also able to fit a full-frame DSLR and three or more lenses, in addition to a smaller 13″ laptop. The Rana 10, meanwhile, can fit a full-frame DSLR, two or more lenses, and a 9.7 – 10.5″ tablet. Finally, Rana 7 can accommodate a full-frame DSLR and one or more lenses, depending on size, plus an iPad mini or other small tablet.
Cravar is offering the Rana Series bags at the following Kickstarter pledge prices ahead of the higher planned retail costs (assuming the bags are successfully funded and brought to market):
- Rana 7: $165 or more
- Rana 10: $195 or more
- Rana 13: $245 or more
- Rana 15: $275 or more
