Grams(28) Upgrades Your Camera Bag With A Perfect Companion To Your Fuji X-100VI

If you are like me, and have a “few” camera bags, they are all situation dependent. Stealth, Utilitarian, & Travel.

One thing I didn’t have is a bag that I could bring into black tie event without sticking out.
Grams (28) has come to market with a beautifully made leather bag, designed with the photographer in mind.

Well Crafted, this bag sits ergonomically right on my shoulder, and has all the pockets and space needed.

Each detail has been well thought out, and was smooth working. Zippers, interior pockets, closures, and as you can see above, even the shoulder strap looks, and works, great.

Here it is from the rear, where I put a tracking device, credentials, etc.. You know, flat-ish stuff.


As you can see, the front pocket has a slight angle to it, and include elastic holders for your batteries, biz cards and some gum.

Now, why did I say it’s the perfect X100VI companion bag?
It’s the size. And the fact that the elegance of the bag reflects the sophistication of the Fuji X100VI. (review of the camera to follow this week)
And what I can fit in there is pretty darn amazing:

The Fuji X100VI camera, a Godox flash, transmitter/receiver for the flash, extra batteries for cam and flash, biz cards (yes, I do still believe in them), phone charger with cable, and space for more. Always carry a Baggu reusable bag ,being in NYC, and the black oval thing is my air pod case by Catalyst.

Then I did try it with a larger camera, the X-H2, and it worked! You can carry that flash OR and extra lens. A little bulkier but it still closed without a bulge.

Not both an extra lens AND a flash, though.
The quality of the leather is top notch, and the zippers front closure are quality, and sleek, plus super quiet for those times you need to be mindfull of sound.

The top of the case goes fully over the interior so you are protected from the elements, although I would hesitate to be in the rain with this.
The main body of the case interior is adjustable using the classic velcro type dividers. In this bag the material on the dividers have a surface that is kind to your gear, and lenses, if you need to toss the camera in. I actually felt good carrying the camera without a lens cap on. Better for speed in shooting as well.

As I went into the real world with this bag, and attended events  the reaction was excellent! Not only did people comment on the looks, they had ideas on how they would use it, even if not for cameras. I did let them know about the company’s other options.

To be honest, this bag will come with me on specific occasions. It’s kind of like when you want to dress to impress, or blend in.

My worker bags will still be my EDC (every day carry). They are a bit beat up, and utilitarian.

This bag is special. Not delicate at all, just want to preserve that “new car smell” as long as I can.

And you can imagine that with this high end quality, also matching the Fuji 100VI, it does have a price: about $460, and right now, there is a 20% discount on the site!


All in all, a great bag to compliment your collection. Like I said, the right bag for the occasion.

I do hope they come out with a larger version, just as a choice for a 2 body, 2 lens, speedlight and more.
