A couple of weeks ago we received a special request from an Italian actor known for his role in Romanzo Criminale. In this video is possible to see how happy Mauro Meconi is to show his brand new personalized leather saddlebag. The actor had the need for a camera holder that he could use on his Sportster. It has been a fun challenge. We had to come up with a design that allowed the bag to have all camera protection criteria and not look bulky.

Mauro Meconi: a personalized leather saddlebag for his camera

We are going to show you, with a couple of pictures, all the steps we followed in order to create this personalized bag. The first thing we did was designing a tailored model in order to have an idea of how the bag would be shaped and the amount of space it would take in order to be big enough to sustain the weight of the content it is designed for. It is important to keep in mind that this bag need to have specific protection for the camera it will hold.

Mauro supplied us with the protective foam required to keep the camera protected at all times; no one but him would know better how to keep its photo camera safe. It is also possible to spot an additional space inside the right hand side saddlebag: that space is meant for storing accessories that can be useful when operating a photo camera, Mauro decided to use it to store its lenses. Saying that realizing this personalized leather saddlebag was a stimulating and fun task to achieve would be an understatement! We are sincerely thankful to Mauro for his challenging and brilliant idea.

Now his photo camera has a safe spot to be stored while not sharing good memories with its owner.
