The Hampton Bag sailed the seas from Great Britain to the United States of America, and landed at the SLR Lounge. It was awarded 4 out of 5 stars overall across four categories: Design, Quality, Features, and Value! SLR Lounge are one of the largest and most reputable photography magazines on the internet. Every year, they carry out independent and non-sponsored reviews of select photographic equipment and accessories. As a startup, we had our fingers and toes crossed they would review us. Luck hit us, when we found out that one of their Managing Editors was keen. A professional photographer herself, Hanssie said,
"The Hampton Bag is great as a handbag and a camera bag, or even a little of both. Does it do the job? Yes. Does it look good doing the job? Definitely."
