Porteen Gear New Site

The new portal to the World of Porteen Gear is ready to go! We still have some minor tweaking to do, but the new site will make the whole buying experience easier to navigate. There will be a Style Guide and Size Guide to help you pick the perfect size of bag. The Bag Builder is easy to get to and there will be galleries to see product in action.

We are most excited about our Ambassador section showcasing some of our talented customers! Enjoy your weekend everyone!


Finding the Perfect Bag!


Please pardon our remodeling of the online presence of Porteen Gear! Until our transition is complete, there are two places you can visit to get your Porteen Gear bag.


Here, you can be the designer by picking swatches of fabrics and leathers to design a bag that is unique to your personality. All six sizes are on the bag builder in the standard formats. You can go add your bag to The Cart right from here and pay with a credit card or Paypal.

(If you want any different customizations or add-ons, you will need to contact us so we can make a custom listing for you in our Etsy store.)

To start building your own custom bag, visit: The Porteen Gear Bag Builder.

To celebrate the warmer weather we know is coming (its snowing today!) We are happy to announce that we have added new features to all camera bags!

There is now extra height on the pockets under the flaps to accommodate taller phones like the Iphone 6.

Porteen gear Camera Bag

We have added outside back pockets to all messenger style camera bags. It’s a great place to stash maps, lens caps or easy to reach items. We have already been putting these on all orders since March 1st. So if you have an order in-house right now, don’t worry, it’s already being done.

We are excited to announce that our bag builder is getting an upgrade and we are almost ready to roll out the new website that will have customer galleries, style guides, easier to navigate information and everything will be in one place!

Do you get overwhelmed by the Bag Builder? Shop our new Pre-Order section and you will be able to customize the basics by changing the interior color or waxed canvas to suit your style. Pre-Orders are our top selling designs, so the hard part is already done!

We might even have a couple new designs up our sleeves for the smaller sizes of cameras that are popular on the market.
