Soapbox Saturday - Jo Totes

I think a lot of you probably have a similiar story to me.  You had your first child and you had a cheap little camera you toted around.  Eventually, you wanted to learn more about taking great pictures of your kids so you could capture all those precious moments and not spend hundreds on photographers.  You did some research and some saving.  Then, you made your big purchase.  You got a DSLR and you love it, although you're still learning.  Are you with me?  You love it, but it's big and you don't want to throw it in your purse.  You kind of wish you had a stylish way to bring it with you.....something that says "hip and cool" rather "than tourist coming through."

Okay, I have a company I am THRILLED to tell you about today.  Meet Jo Totes and their camera bags for ladies.  Pretty fabulous if you ask me.  These bags are a great way to protect your purchase and make sure you use your camera (since you're going to want to tote this baby around).


Let's take a look inside.  The padded interior can be custom fitted not only to protect a camera and lenses, but also to accommodate and organize items like a wallet, music, phone, keys, cosmetics and more.  Padding is sewn directly into the interior lining on all four sides and the bottom of the bags. The bottom is also equipped with four metal feet to guard your bag from rough, dirty, or damp surfaces. Inside of each Jo Tote are removable pads which are completely customizable—you can use as many or as few pads as you wish, arranged in the way that best suits your camera, lenses, and other items. Each bag also includes pockets, strong and comfortable shoulder straps, a top-zippered closure, and a removable cross-body strap.


I received one last week.  It came in this cute box.  Very true.


The bag itself was wrapped in a bag to protect it.  I love it when things are shipped nicely.


And my honest opinion?  I LOVE this bag.  I love that I can fit a lot into it and have everything sectioned off nicely....my camera, and extra lense, candy to bribe my children, etc.  It's super cute and really well made.  I would label them the best priced AND cutest camera bags I've ever seen.


Jo Totes has lots of colors to choose from and they have this new style (on the left) coming out soon.


Does it make me a nerd for picking one that matches my blog - houndstooth interior and all?


If you're looking for a great bag to protect your camera head on over to JoTotes and pick out a bag to put on your mother's day or birthday list.

Thanks for reading.

  8. I think I'm going to divorce my husband so I can marry one these bags! They are fantastic and I keep seeing them everywhere - maybe it's a sign. My Canon is dying to live in a Jo Totes, if only they accepted other handbags for currency - lol.

  9. Hubby got me one in pink and I love it too. It fits the kiddie diapers and snacks, my stuff and the camera. So many people have complemented it. It was a splurge for us but so worth it not to have two bags to carry or swap bags when we go out.

  10. Wow, that new bag style is totally "me". I've been thinking more & more lately that I need a cute bag {basically every time my camera swings forward and clunks the stroller handles} and it's nice to see another option.

    Thanks for sharing!
