About


Since 1998, we at Newswear have made it our goal to manufacture the highest quality equipment for professional photographers worldwide.

Our products are constructed exclusively from high strength materials and manufactured under strict guidelines designed to ensure our products continue their reputation for durable workmanship.

We want our customers to have camera bag systems that work well in the most challenging environments.  Most of all, we want our customers to be pleased with their Newswear purchases.

Through word-of-mouth, sales of Newswear products have spread throughout the global photojournalist community. This is because professional photographers quickly recognize durable products meeting their unique needs.   We thank photographers around the world for their continued support.

Newswear's Company Core Values

Newswear is proud that all its products are designed and assembled in Mexico using fabrics and plastics that are made in the USA.  Why is this important to us? We care about freedom of the press.  Our customers who are world-traveling photojournalists know that countries like China and Vietnam have governments that do not respect freedom of the press.  These governments go as far as to imprison and torture  journalists and photographers. So to manufacture camera bags in China and Vietnam and then sell them to photojournalists would be unethical.

Unfortunately there are plenty of companies that are happy to do this.  They present themselves as friends of the photojournalistic community while at the same time channeling a portion of every sale in the form of taxes to these governments that muzzle the press. All in the name of cheap labor and big profit margins.
We at Newswear urge you not to patronize camera bag companies that manufacture in China and Vietnam.  These unethical companies care more about profits than free speech.
