I am going to Vegas in a few weeks and wanted to buy a backpack purse, that would fit my DSLR, I am debating between these two:

I am wondering how comfortable the straps are though if you wear it for a long time?

I like the blue one too. I find bags with flaps to be cumbersome & annoying.

I like the blue one. Will it big enough? If not I would go with the pink.

Perosnally, I like the blue and wouldn't even consider the other two. I hate bags with the big flap at the top. I find them annoying to deal with and I want easy access to my stuff. I like how the blue one has small pockets on the outside. I'm always looking for purses with functional outer pockets for items I use frequently. Also love the color!
Have a fun trip!

They are epiphanie bag and Kellymoor bag. You can wear them as a backpack


Which is how I would wear it, do you think it would be comfortable that way?

So, the blue one seems like a fav for everyone. I love the hot pink color of the other one, but do like the style of the blue. I am just wondering if it would go well with everything i wear? It will probably be jeans and shirt during the day? They also have these colors:


Which one would go well with most clothes, trying to stay away from black.

I love the blue, just be careful using it as a back pack in Vegas. Always keep it zipped and be aware of people standing close to you. Pickpockets abound.

I just don't see why people think I'm too patronizing (that means I treat them as if they were stupid.)

the last couple of years I have used a back-pack as purse to the office and at vacations as well- but I found out when at vacation it is annoing that you have to take the bag down from your back to get anything in it - this year I used a bag wit a strop crossing my body, it was much easier to get my camera (normal point-and-shoot)

rhhdk I have a cross body camera bag from Kellymoor bags, but it really damaged my neck and shoulder when i wore it for a long period of time with my equipment in their. So, that's why I wanted a backpack so that hopefully it would not be as painful.

I think the middle one in the bottom row would go well with most.. I'm seeing it as a burnt orange/brownish bag??? It would go with most outfits but also would kick up outfits a notch with the color.

I like the blue one. But I'm not brave enough to use a backpack as a purse for fear of pickpockets.

I swear someone tried to lift my wallet once in the airport from a zippered coach purse tote. I got bumped and sort of shoved and my sixth sense dinged. I immediately checked my purse. They didn't get anything. But I think that's because I had my camera sitting on top of my wallet so it was at the very bottom of my bag and boxed in with a water bottle on the other side.

I will add check to see how heavy the bag is empty. Those metal rings on the straps and buckles can add a lot of weight. And camera and extra lens get heavy quick when you are carrying them all day. So if the bag was heavy it won't work for me.

I think as long as I am aware of my surroundings I think it will be ok for pick pockets. Like I would put it in the front of my body if we are around a lot of people, and i won't be wearing it during the day.

I have an Epiphanie bag and it has the 2 purse straps plus a longer shoulder strap. I use the shoulder strap cross body to distribute the weight more

I love the orange/brownish one too! I think it would be a very versatile color.
