Today, Leica Camera has announced a collaboration with high-end German camera bag designer and manufacturer Oberwerth. The ‘Oberwerth for Leica' set has been made exclusively for Leica and is limited to 800 pieces worldwide. Each set consists of a camera bag, removable insert, matching camera strap, and cases for a battery and the EVF 2 or Visoflex 020.
The ‘Oberwerth for Leica' is handmade in Germany from black leather and black Cordura nylon with red edge stitching. With inner dimensions of 9.5″ x 7″ x 3.5″ (24 x 18 x 9 cm), the bag is ideally sized for M, T, X and Q camera systems. You should be able to comfortably fit an M with three lenses. Like other nylon/leather hybrid Oberwerth bags, this case should be very lightweight yet sturdy and stylish. The ‘Oberwerth for Leica’ was awarded the prestigious RedDot European design award.
The set is now available for pre-order through Leica Store Miami for $995. As the set is limited to 800 pieces worldwide, quantities will be limited.
Here’s one Oberwerth user who can testify to the outstanding quality and aesthetics of Oberwerth bags. They are an excellent value.
