This messenger bag can house a DSLR with lens attached
and up to three extra lenses, a flash, accessories and a
10-inch tablet. Using the company’s + 6 system you can
expand the bag by an extra 6cm when you need extra room.
There’s a quick-access zippered opening at the top of the
bag and a secure rear pocket for wallets, passports, etc.
There’s a rain cover and you
can slip the bag through the
handle of rolling luggage.
This stately shoulder
bag is ideal for advanced
compacts or mirrorless
models with a single lens
in tow. Two overlapping
foam layers protect your
gear and there’s a front
pocket for batteries and
memory cards. The padded
interior base is removable
if you need more room.
There’s leather grain accents
and solid brass fittings.
Approved for airline carry-on but tough
enough to endure being checked in,
this SKB hard case features Think Tank
dividers and lid organizer. The rolling
case is dustproof and watertight. The
interior features a Nylex-wrapped closed-cell fitted foam liner and 10 nylon dividers
with heavy-duty hook-and-loop tabs.
The lid organizer includes laminated
clear mesh pockets and a polyester-lined
iPad/laptop top-loading pocket.

PeliCan air 1637
One of the newest members of Pelican’s
refreshed Air line, the 1637 is 40 percent lighter
and 45 percent deeper than its predecessor,
but doesn’t sacrifice the durability that
Pelican hard cases are known
for. Indeed, the 1637 features a
watertight O-ring gasket
and is crush- and dustproof.
You can outfit it in a Pick
N’ Pluck foam interior that
you customize yourself.
You can also order the
case without foam or with
padded Velcro dividers.
