LSI Bag Leo S "Correspondent

The Leo Correspondent was developed in close collaboration with the LSI (formerly LHSA) - Leica Society International. It is arguably our most maneuverable, easy to use, yet minimalist and to the point camera bag for the dedicated Leica photographer on the street.

  • Sporty modern design
  • Super soft leather exclusively from Germany and Italy - supple and comfortable to wear, yet sturdy
  • Sophisticated, protective interior with practical details
  • Lifetime warranty (after product registration)

The ideal bag for the avid Leica CL, Q, M or SL photographer looking for the perfect shot on the road. Enough room to carry multiple lenses, but not so big that it doesn't restrict your mobility.

The form-fitting design, provided by the wonderfully soft but padded cowhide leather, distinguishes this bag as much as its bigger brother Leo Voyager. It holds all of your gear, protecting it from the elements while giving you easy access to your camera and any lenses or accessories you want to take with you. You can either access the camera from the top or open the side for easy access to all lenses and gear.

The Leo Correspondent has many new design features that are completely focused on the photographer. By eliminating the front "messenger" flap common on many bags, access to the camera, lenses and accessories is quick and easy with a single zipper. The zippers are lined on the inside with fabric to protect your hands and gear when you pull them out of the bag. Special features like the safety flap over the camera and leather opening limiters for over-the-shoulder use enhance the usability and safety of the design. The red interior is configurable and makes it easier to find items compared to a black interior.

The bag also features a flat interior pad suitable for use with CL, Q and M cameras and lenses, but can be easily removed to make room for the SL camera series and its lenses. On the inside of the top is a protective sleeve for your iPad Mini or similar sized tablet or phone. Finally, we've included a hidden pocket for the Apple AirTag or similar tracker, rather than presenting the tag on a keychain where it can be easily discovered or removed. This pocket is designed to be "worn" on the hip while taking photos.
