Ohuhu’s Canvas DSLR Shoulder Organizer Bag

ScreenHunter_04 Sep. 28 20.53

It’s kind of nice to have all your camera stuff in one place, especially when you’ve upgraded to a DSLR system and all the various sundry lenses, filters, shrouds, flashes and other stuff that come with it. And unless you buy one of those bundles that costs an extra $150, you usually don’t even get a bag to store the camera in, let alone the accessories. Thankfully, Ohuhu rides to the rescue with their nifty Canvas DSLR Shoulder Bag & Organizer.

What I liked best about this bag is it looks and feels very much like a simple duffle bag, and doesn’t scream “Steal me!!” like a branded, fancy camera bag might. It’s soft and pliable, but with the semi-rigid non-marring foam inserts, and adjustable foam dividers (with velcro attachment edges), you can safely store, carry, and customize your bag to fit your camera and accessory needs, and have space for plenty of other goodies like your phone, a water bottle, maybe a small point & shoot, whatever! With zippered, and snapped compartments all around, there’s ample storage solutions for everything you could possibly need or want to carry with your camera. The convenient shoulder strap makes carrying it a breeze, but there were times I missed a simple handle on the top to carry also, but that’s a minor personal quibble, and after a couple of uses, I didn’t miss it at all. And the buckles are adjustable to fit any amount of camera, accessories, and almost any configuration and still snap closed securely. But it doesn’t end there, because if you remove the shock-proof foam inserts, this bag can be your carry-all duffle for just about anything. The water-resistant canvas also means if you happen to hit inclement weather, you won’t be freaking out about your expensive electronic gadgets getting soaked and ruined!

The one negative for this product is the price. For the same money or less, you can find shoulder bags (even Nikon and Canon ones!) on Amazon and elsewhere. But in my experience, Ohuhu makes a quality product, and I can safely say I’ve never had a major issue or failure with anything they’ve made. I feel perfectly safe entrusting my DSLR camera and accessories to this bag, and I think after trying it out, you will too!

Leather Nova Cleaners and Conditioners Review

logo-footer

 

I have quite a few leather goods in my home. From furniture, to purses and wallets, jackets and shoes, to even nick-nacks. Caring for leather goods properly isn’t always easy. Every knows someone, or has experienced it themselves…the sticky leather. The greasy leather, the cracked, stiff, dried leather. It can be heart-breaking. Enter Leather Nova and it’s trio of superb products. Never greasy, never sticky, and always on point.

I started with the Leather Nova Spray Cleaner. A pH balanced, no-rinse cleaner made of the highest grade, non-toxic polymers, and free from harsh detergents and chemicals. Made in the USA and even comes with a free microfiber towel to apply. It has a pleasant, leather-ey smell and isn’t harsh on my hands, either. I know this because I have a habit of applying these types of cleaners with my bare hands. It quickly brought up all the little bits of dirt and grime on hubby’s favorite chair, and wiped clean away with a towel. The surface felt smooth, clean and smelled fresh. So far, so good.

Next up is Leather Nova’s Ultimate Leather Protector Conditioner. Also made in the USA for non-toxic, high grade polymers, and like the cleaner, free from harsh detergents and chemicals. It goes on thick (using the included microfiber applicator and, again, my hand) but spreads easily. It was very shiny and had me quite worried, but a careful reading of the directions says to leave it on for an hour and then buff the excess away. After a hour I buff with a soft cloth. Hubby’s chair didn’t look this snazzy when we brought it home from Krause’s! And the smell is almost showroom new. No little cloth fibers left behind from buffing, just a soft, smooth, supple leather chair that even I can now enjoy sitting in. It even lessened the appearance for the two surface scratches in the seat cushion. Two for two!

Last up is the Leather Nova Cleaner & Conditioner. Made to the same standards of the stand alone cleaner and conditioner product, it was, sadly, my least favorite of the the three. I followed the directions to a tee, but felt that the two separate products did a far superior job of both cleaning and conditioning the leather. I could see this being used as a “touch up” or follow-up treatment after using the other two products first to deep clean and condition, but as a stand alone product it felt lacking. It worked well on Hubby’s wallet, and an old purse of mine that had seen better days (it may even work it’s way back into the rotation again!). But where it really shined was an old leather jacket I’d given hubby back when we were dating. He’s used and abused it, even one year where it was used to take our little dog out to do her business. In the rain. And then left in the garage to dry. After an all-over treatment from Leather Nova’s Cleaner & Conditioner, it felt better than the day I gave it to him. Many, many, many (like, a lot of) years ago. And now with many more years to come. So while it wasn’t my favorite of the three, it still did an outstanding job on it’s own.

Leather Nova seems to have a passion for leather (not like that, dirty birds), and takes it’s products serious. It offers a 90 day, no questions asked guarantee, too. Use the product for up to 90 days and if you’re unsatisfied for any reason at all, contact them for a full and prompt refund. Environmentally friendly and manufactured in small batches to ensure quality, I am impressed with the dedication and devotion shown to their products.
