If you love a crossbody bag, then there’s a good chance you’ve heard about the Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag or you know of a great dupe. This viral belt bag became the must-have accessory for anyone that wanted to ditch the giant purse or diaper bag that was weighing them down. And while I absolutely loved my Everywhere Belt Bag and quite literally wore it everywhere, it was time for an upgrade — or at least, a crossbody with a little more room. I opted for another Lululemon bag and I’m so glad that I did because it instantly became my favorite purse.

So, if you are looking for a new crossbody or you are shopping for someone who needs a new purse, you have to check out the Lululemon Crossbody Camera Bag 2L. It’s larger than the Everywhere Belt bag with two zippered pockets, but still has the versatility and convenience of a crossbody bag.

For me, the Crossbody Camera Bag is perfect for stashing my phone, keys, sunglasses, a little bit of makeup, and my license and other cards that I need to carry every day. Normally in a crossbody, I’d have to ditch a few of those items or I’d worry that my keys were scratching my sunglasses because they were being squished inside the one pocket. However, with the Crossbody Camera Bag, I can put them in separate pockets and still have room to spare.

The Crossbody Camera Bag 2L is Waterproof

Not only is this bag waterproof and dries without staining if you (or your kids) spill water on it, but it also cleans up brilliantly. I wore the bag the entire time I was on spring break with my family and I managed to get sunscreen all over the bag. Not just once, but almost every time I was reapplying sunscreen on myself or my kids. I was using mineral sunscreen that leaves behind a white cast and I was nervous I ruined my bag. However, I used a damp rag to wipe the bag down and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it came clean.

Inside the Crossbody Camera Bag 2L

While I love all of the extra room inside the two separate pockets, make sure you always keep your bag zipped. I have a habit of rushing and not always zipping the bag and it only takes a minute for my credit cards and license to spill out. Now, if I just zipped my bag, it would be totally fine. Honestly, I have done this quite a few times so you think I would learn. Just make sure you always zip up the bag.

Other features of the Crossbody Camera Bag 2L

The bag comes in some really great neutral colors that make it a great option for all four seasons. Even though it’s the perfect bag to wear with casual clothes, I’ve worn it out a few times to dinner and parties and felt like it still looked great dressed up.

The bag has adjustable straps, so you can wear it at the length that best works for you. The bag is made from 100% recycled nylon, but the metal zippers help make it super durable and stylish.

Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a new purse that allows you to be hands-free, isn’t too big or bulky, and still has plenty of room to hold all of the essentials (like your phone, keys, and sunglasses), you will absolutely love this bag. I’m really hard on my purses and I’m shocked how this one has held up to everyday wear. It wipes clean (even after my sunscreen spill), and looks great with a casual or dressed up look. So, if you are running to the school pickup line, meeting friends for coffee, or you have a busy weekend with kid’s sports, this is the crossbody bag that you need!

HERE is where you can get the crossbody camera bag. There are five different colors to choose from. I have the Grey Eucalyptus and I get compliments on it all the time!

There’s also a canvas version of the bag that has a dressier vibe.
