Jo Totes Siena Bag Review & Giveaway

There's a giveaway up on the blog right now that's pretty awesome- it's the Christmas Wish List Giveaway and among other things, this year it includes a Jo Totes Siena bag! I unpacked it, took photos, and packed it up again for the winner of the giveaway because I wanted to be able to share it with you more closely!

Isn't she lovely? ;)



There's a flat zipper pocket on the back of the bag:





The front clasp is easy to open with a little twist & lift:



Inside of the top flap, you can see the "Johansen Camera Bags" stamp.  There's a small zipper pocket on the inside of the bag and a flat pocket section on the outside of the bag (only accessible after opening the clasp & flap).



This bag comes with 3 dividers so you can customize the set-up of the interior of your bag depending on what you'll be carrying.  I like to carry my DSLR with a lens attached, ready to shoot, so I would only need one divider if I were also carrying an extra lens or flash.  Maybe I'd add another skinny section if I wanted a spot for my wallet and some other small items.



The bag can be carried by the handle on the top, or you can add a shoulder strap by clipping it onto the side like so:



The strap size is adjustable (just like a belt) and comes with a shoulder pad.



Earlier this year, I reviewed Jo Totes' Gracie in Butterscotch.  It is a very similar colour to the Siena so I thought I would show you a comparison so you can see the difference.  The styles are very different (the Gracie is larger, the Siena is much more stiff, there are more pockets and sections in the Gracie), but you can see the similarity in colour here:



Here's a close up of the leather.  The leather on the Gracie is much more textured than the Siena:



I think this is a really fun bag with a different look than any of the other Jo Totes bags I've reviewed in the past, and one of you is going to be lucky enough to win it for yourself!

  1. Love the look of Siena. That would be a great bag to take my DSLR with me in the go, but still look stylish

    1. I think I agree with you. The Siena would be good when you just need something smaller & more compact.

  3. Oh I don't think my first one went through.

    I have been looking for a new camera bag. I really like the Gracie, and it looks like it would accommodate my beast of a camera.

  5. Oooooh, I'm such a bag lady, I love them all, LOL! Both Gracie and Siena are beautiful bags that I'd love to carry around, especially with a divider for my DSLR. I've been trying to think of a great way to always carry my camera around without worrying about it in my regular bag - maybe its time to just pick up a camera bag with fab dividers in it, like Gracie! :D

  7. Do you think Canon 5D mkIII with the grip and 24-70 would fit inside? :D

    1. I don't have this bag anymore (I did this post with a bag that I gave away in a Christmas giveaway), but I would guess that it would be a really tight fit (as far as the grip- I do think the lens would fit)... just not sure about the grip). If you ask on the JoTotes instagram or facebook page, you may be able to get an answer from someone who knows for sure!

    2. Thank you! I already asked a question on JoTotes instagram and still waiting for the answer. 😊

    3. Let me know what you find out Goga. I love the look of the Siena, but just seems to small for my needs. Does not appear to me that a photographer designed these bags like the Kelly bags. The Kelly bag design's really fit the photog's needs.

    4. Jo, you will find that a lot of Jo Totes' bags are much larger and have room for larger equipment or more pieces of equipment. The Siena just happens to be one of the smaller bags (likely made with smaller DSLRs in mind)

  8. This is an ideal camera bag.It looks just like a standard carry bag.I always worry that people will see I have expensive equipment inside the one I have now.It screams camera bag.
