Kelly Moore Wearable Wallet and Gadget Clutch

I did it. I bought another Kelly Moore bag. I believe that it is going to be my last one for awhile. I bought the two smallest bags and most affordable ones on the website.  Let’s get into it and talk about the Gadget Clutch first.

First, let’s talk about price. The Gadget Clutch comes in at $69. I definitely believe that there are cheaper and better options out there, like the one here, but if you have a Kelly Moore problem like I do you might want to buy it.

The Gadget Clutch

The Gadget Clutch, GC, can be carried by itself as a clutch, for a night out or an afternoon walking around, but its main purpose is to organize your items. It is best for your extra cords, hard drives, and other items. I don’t really like the loop aspect of the cords, it doesn’t keep them in well when moving it around.

If you start to add too much stuff in it, it does get hard to close. It is a good size though to slide into any other bags or backpacks that you might carry around. Because I don’t use it as a wallet I only put business cards in the card slots mainly because I don’t see me just carrying this around on a day to day basis. As one of the more affordable items I couldn’t pass up getting them to try and add to my organization because I do love pouches.

How I stuff my gadget clutch

I’m not very good at looping the cords around those snaps and I haven’t figured out a better way, so everything still seems like a mess to me and doesn’t hold as many cords as I need it to. On top of having my Apple Mouse on one side I often times have my external hard drive on the other. You can see my battery pack hiding in the back that I keep on me as well. It is a good place to store extra memory cards and filters for your lenses as well. As I mentioned earlier I do believe that there are better alternatives that fit my needs that I linked above.

If you like Kelly Moore bags then this might be a great present for yourself or for a loved one. It gets the job done and fits the Kelly Moore aesthetic completely. With its leather and canvas material it is sure to last for a long time.

Now moving on the to the Wearable Wallet. The Wearable Wallet is in essence a fanny pack, an $89 fanny pack. I very nice fanny pack, but could possibly even not be as practical as a fanny pack because you can’t dump nearly as much stuff into it. It looks almost like the Gadget Clutch, but it has a strap that you can either wear cross body or around your waist. I like to wear it around my waist and slide it into one of my belt loops if I’m wearing jeans. The strap is adjustable, so that it can fit any size waist.

It is made with leather and canvas just like the Gadget Clutch, but it doesn’t open all the way, so that you can keep whatever contents inside of the bag. It just has the top flap and a zipper with an outside pocket that you can slide small thing in as well.

The inside of the fanny pack also has the card slots that we see in so many Kelly Moore bags. There’s a small mesh pocket with a zipper that I have kept chapstick and lipstick in before. The inside is large enough for me to carry my phone and an external battery pack as well as my GoPro and a kindle. If you have any sort of point and shoot camera like a Sony RX100 or a Canon G7X those will fit nicely inside as well.

Both of these bags would be great gifts for anyone. They’re a good introduction to the Kelly Moore brand and their quality of bags. I would definitely recommend these as gifts or something to treat yourself with. I’m not going to say that they’re the most economically friendly option because they’re not, and there are other options out there, but they are made with great quality and look good while using or wearing them. Below you’ll find an unboxing of these items where you can see them in some more detail. What did you think of these items? Anything to add to your wishlist? Have you tried any other Kelly Moore products? Let me know down in the comments! Until next time,

Kelly Moore Riverdale Unboxing!

I did it again…. I bought another Kelly Moore bag.
Hi my name is India and I have a problem with buying bags, purses, and backpacks.
I decided to buy this bag because it was on sale for their birthday, and it was just about half off, so I had to jump on it.
I will say that after using it the strap is too short. I don’t know how they make it longer in their pictures, but when I even extend the strap to the last hole it was too short for me. I’ve never had that problem. The purse hangs somewhere in my abdomen instead of down to my hip and that’s annoying to me because I kept hitting it with my elbow. I’m going to continue to try it out, but it is definitely for light carry and the minimum. Either a point and shoot or a mirrorless camera with a fixed lens.  Do you own any of their bags? Let me know what you think! Until next time,

Kelly Moore B-Hobo Bag

Though I am not an avid photographer, I love the idea of photography. I have always loved cameras and everything that comes with them. As you already know I love bags as well. So, of course I went into a major search to find the perfect camera bag!

Through spending hours online during class, or procrastinating on homework I found nothing. Until I was doing a school event and was talking to a woman who pulled out her camera from this beautiful bag that she said was actually a camera bag. I asked her where she got it it from and she said “Kelly Moore!”. That is where the obsession began. I of course then had to spend countless hours on the computer trying to find out more about this Kelly Moore. I watched YouTube videos, read reviews, combed her website, and decided that this was the right camera bag for me. She has so many different types to fit all occasions and all needs, and they are beautifully designed to look like your typical day bag with the protection of your expensive camera.
Now the bags are expensive so I needed one to fit into my jobless college girl budget. I decided on the B-Hobo bag that is one of the least expensive of the bunch. This one is shaped like a large purse and has a comfortable shoulder strap. After consulting through a mass email with family I decided to go with mustard, and treated myself to a late birthday/early graduation present.
Below you’ll see some pictures, I took these the night before vacation so they’re kind of rushed, of how I fill it up, and what I can carry in it!

Under the flap of the bag there are two pockets that I slip my extra memory cards and my phone into. There are also side pockets that iPhone can fit into.
Lastly there is a back pocket that I can put my iPad mini or notebook into

The inside of the bag has padding that is able to protect you camera. I’m able to fit my DSLR in here with lens attached as well as my fixed 50mm lens.
The dividers are adjustable so that you can shape them however you want.
Also the inside of the bag comes out so you can just use it as a purse!

1. Surface Tablet 2

3. Evernote notebook
4. 50mm fixed lens
5. fisheye lens
6. Case f extra memory cards
7. Grid-It Organizer (Actually I’m not sure if this fits in there it just might still be on the table)
8. My point and shoot Nikon

 Here’s me and my bag at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey!
You can see that it lies just like a normal purse and is pretty inconspicuous as a camera bag.
It worked wonderfully for my adventure this summer!!
