Pelican Carry On Case

Pelican Carry On Case
This watertight hard case can help keep your important gear safe during travel. We spend a lot of time shooting outside of our studio, and rely on this case to carry some of our equipment. It's hard shell and foam interior lets us relax knowing some of our equipment is well protected. Because the case weighs over 13 pounds, it can get heavy for some users. But have no fear, the wheels and extendable handle allows you to wheel your equipment around. This is definitely a durable and reliable case that will help get your equipment to any location safely.  B&H Link:  http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/330231-REG/Pelican_1510_000_110_1510_Carry_On_Case.html

Manfrotto Bumblebee 220

Manfrotto Bumblebee 220
The more equipment you can carry the more you can do at the set! This Manfrotto Bumblebee bag allows you to carry up to 2 DSLRs, as well as 8 lenses up to 500mm. We use this bag to carry both of our DSLRs safely to any location. It's water repellent body and removable rain cover helps protect our gear while traveling in the bad weather. The durable and comfortable straps are certainly a must need for any camera back pack, which is exactly what you get with this bag!   B&H Link:  http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1049375-REG/manfrotto_mb_pl_b_220_bumblebee_220_pro_light_backpack.html

Kata Pro-Light Bumblebee-220 PL Backpack

Kata Pro-Light Bumblebee-220 PL Backpack
I wanted a bag I could use for whenever it doesn't make sense to use my ThinkTank Airport Security 2.0 bag. So basically, if I can't wheel the bag to wherever I'm going, I wanted a comfortable backpack to use instead. The Airport Security bag does have straps so you can use it as a backpack, but it's not comfortable and the bag (at least mine with stuff in it) is really heavy. Sometimes I'll grab the Airport bag, throw it in the van and bring the Bumblebee also and I'll transfer what I need into the backpack for the hike through the woods or whatever. At least I'll have most of my stuff back at the van in the big bag if I need it. I like the construction of the Bumblebee backpack and it's very comfortable. I took the waste strap off, but I would put it back on...

Tenba Large Messenger Bag

Tenba Large Messenger Bag
I picked this bag up at a local camera store in Boston called Broomfield Camera Co . I did have an issue about 8 months after I got it with the plastic coming through the handle. I had good luck with both Tenba and Broomfield. I called and spoke with Tenba, they would honor their warranty and replace it right away. However,... I think we called Broomfield about the receipt or something for proof of purchase. They offered to handle the return for me. At first I thought, oh man get the middle guy in the middle and it will take forever for me to get a new bag. I did it anyway, and it was super fast. The availability of the bag was even an issue, but Broomfield got it done. I love them and will stop in again when in Boston! When I was there they were very helpful and...
