Kickstarter-born leather goods company Temporary Forevers has launched a campaign to fund production of its new 48Hr Switch camera bag. Like the 48Hr Classic it introduced earlier this year, the Switch is a convertible backpack/briefcase/messenger bag with padded dividers suitable for camera gear storage. The handcrafted leather bag offers room for other items like a laptop, accessories, and clothing thanks to its expandable design. In addition to the 48Hr Switch, T.Forevers also plans to launch a non-expandable 24Hr Switch model.
The bag’s camera and lens dividers are detachable, enabling owners to rearrange or remove them as necessary for storing camera bodies and lenses. In addition to those dividers, the 48Hr Switch features a padded laptop pocket, dedicated document sleeve, pockets for a phone, pens and other small items, and a 3.9in / 10cm depth expandable to 6.5in / 16.5cm.
The 48Hr Switch and non-expandable 24Hr Switch are made with full grain leather and 20oz British cotton, depending on the style. The company details multiple bag style options, including ‘Rum & Olive,’ ‘Desert & Black,’ ‘Rum Brown,’ and ‘Black.’ Buyers will be given two leather strap options: a strap that is 3.8cm in width and another that is 5cm in width.
Temporary Forevers has raised more than double its Kickstarter goal, and is offering various styles of the Switch bags in exchange for pledges that start at £149 / $186 USD.
