The lusting after bags is as addictive to photographers as the lusting after new gear – GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) is a disease without treatment! A photographer can never have enough cameras, lenses, lighting, and of course, bags. Finding the perfect bag is part of the photographic experience, not unlike the quest for the perfect photograph.
Enter the Oberwerth Freiburg. Possibly the most expensive bag in it’s class and upon first impressions, it would be normal to question why such a simplistic looking bag could (rightfully) command such a high price. I decided to give this bad a very good run through for the last 3 months to really see if it could take the top spot as the no.1 camera bag in this market segment. You may have read my review on the Wotancraft Ryker , which I absolutely love, but it did fall a little short of perfection due to it’s weight, so it I was keen to see if the lighter Oberwerth Freiburg could (literally) give it a run for it’s money.
