The Vanguard Havana 38 Messenger Bag…my every day walk around “survival kit”.

I want to start this blog out by saying THANK YOU Vanguard USA  http://www.vanguardworld.com/photo_video/professionals/ for your support and supplying me with bags and tripods for my use and review.

When I first saw The Havana series of bags to be honest I wasn’t sure what to think. They felt light,not well padded and just not up to my daily abuse that I put my gear through.

Well after 3 MONTHS of daily use and continued abuse I have to say I WAS WRONG!

The Havana 38 has quickly become my favorite go to every day bag. The lightweight material snugs and hugs my body very comfortably while protecting my Fuji mirroless camera systems with care.

The Havana 38 has ample room for all of my “essentials” to get me through my daily journeys around town.

As you can see I tend to carry alot of “stuff: with me daily. I never know what I’m going to encounter in my daily travels and shooting schedule.

The Havana 38 has traveled with me on my summer workshops with National Photography Workshops http://www.meetup.com/National-Photography-Workshops/ to Chicago,Lake Michigan and its many Lighthouses and my home town Ann Arbor.

I also use other Vanguard camera bags and tripods and I will have reviews on them soon.

Thank you again for reading my review of The Havana 38 and stay posted for upcoming reviews,workshops and photowalks with  my groups National Photography Workshops and Michigan Photo Adventures.

Word Press Android App

So its day 2 of Blogging and I just loaded the Word Press app into my phone.
I also added a Facebook link and a Vanguard USA link.
If all works out well…my blog will become my default post to fb and other social media sites.
