Ona has announced a brand new backpack called the Clifton. This new bag is noteworthy because it's their first backpack in leather, and also the first of their camera bags to feature removable inserts (all prior bags only had removable dividers). The new Clifton backpack is handcrafted from Italian leather, features adjustable padded shoulder straps and a layer of air mesh along the back for maximum comfort. The Clifton fits a 13" laptop in a dedicated slot, and also fits a camera and up to six lenses with the included removable dividers. The backpack will retail for $499.
