|Pros:||Different designs through the range|
|Cons:||Perhaps not to everyone's taste|
Orkio may be a newcomer to the camera bag world but it has made something of a style statement from the off.
Its products are targeted towards the growing number of young and fashion-conscious photographers, in stark contrast to the plain and conservative designs offered by other manufacturers.
Its Urban Bagz (yes, spelt with a z) range plays host to two designs: one with a traditional side zip and one with a clasp. Both have a belt loop stitched to their backs, and a carabine for connecting to the supplied neckstrap.
The Icon bag (left) is the more protective of the two, being made from padded nylon, while there's even a small pocket on the inside for holding a memory card or two.
The Cloudy bag (right), meanwhile, may feel a little less padded and lacks a pocket, but its solid construction and eye-catching design makes it a worthy alternative.
