The best camera bags for women won't all look the same – some may require an ergonomic way to carry heavy camera gear through dramatic vistas, others might simply be in need of a discrete way to disguise expensive camera kit with a stylish bag. 

If you're a female travel, landscape or wildlife photographer, you may have found that many of the best camera bags don't quite fit comfortably. If you've ever stepped foot in a hiking store, you'll have noticed that rucksacks are divided into separate sections for men and women. This is because bags for women will feature a design that's suited for the female physique, with straps placed in slightly different places for better comfort. While there might not be the same level of customization in the camera bag industry, there are still some models that are better suited to female figure.
