Oberwerth proudly presents its second Kickstarter Project!
We all know the situation. We want our gear to be protected but at the same time we want it to be ready to take shot as fast as we can. At best, we need to be ready in a second since there is only a short moment for the perfect picture, especially in street photography or outdoors during a walk. But by the time one has gotten his camera out of the bag, it’s too late and the moment is gone. So we often compromise the security of our equipment. The results can be painful and expensive.
Well, here is the solution that we developed along with dedicated and experienced photographers: the 1-Second Camera Holster by Oberwerth.
It is certainly the fastest and safest bag in camera history and like all our bags, every stitch is painstakingly engineered. The Camera Holsters are 100% handmade from finest Tuscany leather. They are designed with you in mind to be nothing but the best for the purpose of speed and safety. The bag has been developed and thought through by our photographers and selected clients who have been testing them for a while now and whose feedback is in there for you.
If you support us and choose to back this Project you are basically picking a gift with your backing and supporting our future activities at the same time. In other words, you will be pre-ordering one of the newest bags we have that offers you the finest protection and readiness for your camera. By doing so, you get a huge discount and receive your choice before it ever gets to the stores. But best of all: We have designed some accessories that create the perfect set for fast and easy photography. So, make sure to check out Pledges and Add-Ons section a little further down below.
By backing us you help us in our manufacturing; we promise to be fast and we will come up with even more ideas apart from the usual. Great ideas, which we have already in mind.
Also, we have put together some useful combinations of our 1-Second Camera Holster with some great ideas like the Body Shell and some of our earlier Oberwerth designs. Choose the pledge or check this out in the add on section down below.
We are so proud to come up with this totally new concept of a holster bag. Developed with our good friend Jan, a dedicated Leica photographer and store owner, we came up with the perfect 1-Second Camera Holster which has been designed so that your camera is well protected in a bag but ready to go in one second. The perfect combination of speed and protection - padded, water repellent and made for pure functionality, protection and speed. Spend less than a hundred dollars to protect maybe thousands – we think that is a pretty cool way to go.
One more thing: This Holster and all our other pledges and Add-Ons are all Made in Germany. Don’t settle for in-between solutions. Go for the original!
You have got to have this 1-Second Holster bag no matter how many camera bags you own. This one is missing! The combination of security and speed just have not existed before.
The Ever-Ready Body Shell
The coolest add-on in our combined pledges or in our Add-On section is the Ever-Ready Body Shell. Our fathers used to have the hard case camera body shells and, today, you can still buy them to protect your camera body. But the disadvantage of such hard cases is that they are generally stiff and you often have to remove them totally or there is a chance that a part will dangle into your image. In simple terms, they are good protectors but they are a pain. We created the perfect solution. The body shell is the ultimate, soft and beautiful protection for your camera. A sleek outside that can easily be removed as you see in our little video and in the images below. It is out of the way in no time. The perfect addition to the 1-Second Camera Holster!
The Camera Straps
But next to that you may also want a nice strap that fits your Holster bag just perfectly. So, we created a possible add-on that lets you add a camera strap long enough to wear around your body and in the same color as the Holster.
You can choose the color of your strap during our backer survey so that they fit your other choices.
The Compact All Leather Bag
Kickstarter is a Win-Win situation! You can support us and get so much value out for you!
1. Choose your Reward
Kickstarter allows you to only choose one (and only one) reward level to back this project. You cannot choose 2 reward levels, sorry. Just one. You will get whatever is part of that reward—you cannot take out things that you don't want for things that you would rather like to have.
(See the FAQ on more information why we can't do this.)
But good news, there is a little trick to add things to your pledge.
2. Add whatever you like! Check out the Add-On Section for additional ItemsIn case you want to add something additional from our “Menu of Add-Ons” to your reward, check out the Add-On Menu below. If it's in the Add-On Menu you can add it to your reward by increasing your pledge by the amount specified in the menu. You can only add things to your reward that are in the Add-On Menu. How to do so? Just click on the “Manage my Pledge” button on the top of the campaign page and increase your pledge by the amount of your preferred item from the Add-On Menu.
3. Hurrah, you made it!
In the backer survey we send after the campaign ends, we will ask for all the details (e.g. shipping information, color preference, add-on specifics). So relax, kick back and we will work as fast as we can to get everything going even starting production while the campaign is still under way.

Risks and challenges
Oberwerth is proudly presenting its second project on Kickstarter. But we have not been sitting around since we completed our first project. We have built a reputation for premium bags from Seattle to Tokyo from London to Seoul. We have been working hard to make our customers happy regardless whether it is Kickstarter or any sale we have been doing, otherwise.
The 1 Sec. Holster bag is a totally new concept for a camera bag and we hope that with your help we can manage a breakthrough for this new type of bag – the perfect combination of speed and security. With your support of our project you start this exciting journey.
We can promise with full confidence that we know how to build a superb bag and you can be confident that we will deliver on our promise. But, of course, unforeseen issues may come our way. But we will handle them with great care and open communication with our backer community. We take care!
Having said that, we have established our production and supply chain of materials and have been working with them for some time now. We have put some extra time into our timetable to account for things that might go wrong. But we are fairly confident that it will work out. Nevertheless there is some risk.
