I'm going to come right out and say it.  I absolutely love your bags.  I have been carrying my gear in ONA bags ever since winning my Union Street in one of your online drawings back in 2012.  Since then, I seem to have developed an addiction as my collection has grown to a total of four bags and three camera straps.  The craftsmanship and quality of materials have raised the bar, and I appreciate how your designs compliment my own personal style.  They help keep a low profile and don't broadcast to the world that I'm carrying photography gear, which is especially important when I'm out with my Phase One camera system.

Since 2016, I have been working on a book project photographing Civil War reenactors known as the Bucktails.  Throughout the project, my Camps Bay has been a crucial part of my gear.  For the more obvious reason, it has carried my gear perfectly.  Additionally, it serves as a great sandbag substitute to prevent my studio light from getting blown over by the wind.  Yes, any bag is capable of these roles, but I don't want to use just any bag.  I've grown quite fond of my ONA bags and using anything else just does not seem right.  They have seen me through assignments and projects for the past ten years.  Each time I reach for one of your bags, I'm excited to see where the day takes me.
