the theit lula camera bag: a giveaway

Today I have an incredible giveaway from a local brand, THEIT, makers of the prettiest camera bags I have ever seen. For years I have been carrying my camera and lenses in many different but not always so safe ways, but they are very secure in here. Plus it has extra space for all the things I insist on carrying around with me at all times. I am so happy to have this bag!

Update: March 28, 2014: This giveaway is now closed! The winner is Emily. I have hidden the comments as some contained full email addresses. Thank you!

This sweet coral number is the Lula bag, which was designed by Jen of Jen Loves Kev. I took mine to Allan Gardens the other day. It was hot and humid in there (the gold plate fogged up a bit! And me in a wool coat because it was actually freezing outside), and it was just the perfect antidote to this eternal winter. Plus it smelled amazing because many of the flowers were in full bloom. My coral Lula looked right at home! Geoff & I couldn't resist snapping quite a few photos of it.

The bag is made of a high quality synthetic fabric, which is easy to clean and lightweight. The strap is removable, as is the decorative tassel (I like it though). I took a “What’s in My Bag” pic for the THEIT blog, and while I was at it I snapped a few interior shots, which you can view here and here. The THEIT bag has lots of padding and inserts that can be moved around (using velcro) to accommodate different camera sizes and shapes. It also has two small pockets on the outside that are perfect for film canisters, two pockets along the sides for small items such as cleaning cloths or keys, an interior zip pocket, and a large zip pocket on the back. Quite a lot of storage space, and yet the bag never feels like it weighs me down.

THEIT will generously provide one Lula bag, in winner’s choice of coral or chestnut, to one lucky winner of this giveaway. To enter, please leave a comment below letting me know what your favourite thing to photograph is. Please be sure that I have a means of contacting you if you win! Also please note that I have comment moderation enabled to combat spam so your comment may take a few moments to appear.

This giveaway is open internationally, but please note that you are responsible for any duties and customs your country may charge. I will select one winner at random on Friday, March 28 and contact that person privately (THEIT will ship out your bag). Good luck!
