Taking Care of Your Leather Camera Bag

Just as you would care for your camera, your leather camera bag needs the same level of attention. Discover our products designed just for leather care to keep your bag in tip top shape. Once you have the proper pieces for cleaning, make sure you read up on our 3 Steps to Properly Care for Your Leather Bags. Knowing how to clean, condition, and store leather is the three part formula to keep your bag beautiful and timeless.


How can I ensure my leather camera bag maintains its quality over time?

Regular care is essential to maintain the quality of your leather camera bag. Clean gently with a soft cloth and use leather-specific cleaners and conditioners. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight and extreme temperatures to prevent fading and cracking. Storing your bag correctly when not in use will also help maintain its shape and protect its exterior.

What size camera and equipment can your leather camera bags accommodate?

We designed the Roosevelt Buffalo Leather Camera Bag to hold a camera body, up to two lenses, batteries, SD cards, and accessories comfortably. It also features a padded interior slot that can hold up to a 13" laptop, making it an excellent choice for photographers who need to carry their tech along with their camera equipment.

Can the dividers in the camera bag be adjusted or removed for different configurations?

Yes, the Roosevelt Buffalo Leather Camera Bag has two removable velcro padded dividers. These dividers can be adjusted or removed according to your needs, allowing for flexible organization and protection of your camera, lenses, and other accessories.

Are Buffalo Jackson's leather camera bags water-resistant?

While our leather camera bags, like the Roosevelt Buffalo Leather Camera Bag, are made from full-grain water buffalo leather that offers a degree of natural resistance to moisture, they are not fully waterproof. We recommend taking additional precautions to protect your camera and equipment in heavy rain or wet conditions.

How does the style of a leather camera bag complement a photographer's image?

A leather camera bag serves a practical function and reflects the photographer's style and appreciation for craftsmanship. Our bags are designed with character and detail in mind, providing a sophisticated and timeless accessory that tells its own story, much like the images you capture.

What additional features do Buffalo Jackson's leather camera bags offer?

Beyond their main compartments, our leather camera bags feature exterior slots for iPads or accessories, interior zippered pockets for smaller items, and genuine brass and iron hardware for durability and style. For example, we equipped the Roosevelt Buffalo Leather Camera Bag with YKK zippers for secure and easy access to your gear.

How do I choose the best leather camera bag for travel?

When choosing a leather camera bag for travel, consider the size and type of equipment you plan to carry and any additional items like laptops or tablets. Look for bags with adjustable dividers for customization, durable materials for longevity, and a style that matches your personal aesthetic. 

Why invest in a high-quality leather camera bag from Buffalo Jackson?

Investing in a premium leather camera bag like ours ensures not only the protection of your valuable camera equipment but also a stylish and durable accessory that ages beautifully.
