There are plenty of choices. Ammo cans are a great option, but after years of Geocaching, I've even seen those fail sometimes. My suggestion, if you want to bury it and keep the moisture from damaging the contents would be different chambers. Basically put a box in a bigger box. If you want to keep it small, get an ammo can and a Lock & Lock or Pelican case that will fit inside the ammo can. Put your treasure into the small box and stick that into the ammo can. For best assurance, I'd actually suspend the smaller box inside the ammo can with some expanding foam. If you want to go bigger, suspend the ammo can in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid secured on it (also with foam).

A common mistake that people make in Geocaching is to put the contents of the cache (specifically the log book) inside a cheap plastic bag. After moisture gets to the log, and inside the bag, it takes forever for it to leave. If you put a smaller box inside a larger box with foam all around, moisture will not be able to get to the treasure inside.

I made this guide because the selection for bags that actually fit the HTC Vive well are either poorly constructed, overpriced, or both. The only case actually intended for the Vive I could find was this overpriced monstrocity, and this, even more overpriced, even larger monstrocity. So I did some digging, tried out a few things, and made this guide.

Carry it everywhere; then you won't need to worry about it getting stolen from your car ;)

I wear one of these shoulder straps, which fastens under the arm as well and would make it pretty tough to yank off of me and run away with my camera. It's also a lot more comfortable than the branded neck straps that come with DSLR cameras.

u/eggcouncil1 · 24 pointsr/photography

I can't speak from personal experience, but you can fit a bunch of gear into a Pelican 1510 carry-on case. The 400mm 2.8 would probably warrant its own case :). There are tons of articles on the web about traveling with camera gear.

u/PyroConduit · 21 pointsr/magicTCG

This bag has been recomended more than once to people on here so I gotta think its popular.

u/SuitSage · 18 pointsr/DnD

It's this case with this foam in it.

They're designed so you can use that case to store different shaped valuables. The way that works is that the foam is actually a bunch of 3/8" x 3/8" squares that extend down which are easy to pull out to remove. I removed the corresponding squares (well, about half or 2/3rds of the way down or else the cubes would fall down too far). Then I just ransacked my copy of Love Letter & Heat for the small red cubes. I also taped on a piece of paper with the sorcerer table (for reference). This is actually pretty crucial since otherwise the cubes could fall out into the lid of the case between sessions.

The intention is that you would on a long rest, place cubes into the spell slots that you have available. Then every time you cast a spell slot, remove the cube and put it into the larger hole underneath. The sorcery points would ideally have a better token to track, but I just used mini d6s which would function similarly (on spending, move them to the large hole). There's even a spot in the bottom right where you could put a mini I think.

u/jordanmunson · 16 pointsr/magicTCG

There’s an Amazon Basics bag for cameras that has worked wonderfully for me. This looks like a newer, cheaper model of it: AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR/DSLR Camera and Accessories - 11 x 6 x 15 Inches, Black

Edit: here is the exact one I have: AmazonBasics DSLR Camera and Laptop Backpack Bag - 13 x 9 x 18 Inches, Black And Orange

u/BirdSchool · 14 pointsr/magicTCG

From the Professor at Tolarian Community College's most recent video: This Camera Backpack or this Parts Organizer work very well. I have the parts organizer which I currently use to carry 9 commander decks in UltraPro 100+ Deckboxes, the Explorers of Ixalan Tiles, and my Oversized cards (Planechase, Archenemy). I've been considering attaching a playmat tube to the side of the case with zip ties.

u/nlabelle · 13 pointsr/photography

I have the nice and cheap AmazonBasics Sling Backpack for SLR Cameras. It is a nice and cheap $20. I am able to fit my camera, 70-200mm, 30mm, 16-70mm in the main compartment. If I don't mind it being crowded I can also fit 50mm and 135mm w/ adapter. Then in the side compartment I can fit the usual amount of accessories. The padding is fine, I do wish it had a bigger side compartment, which itself was more compartmentalized. My only complaint with it is the slinging part isn't as good as I thought but that could be because I don't everything set up right inside the bag.

u/Vandar · 8 pointsr/magicTCG

Amazon Basics Camera bag is excellent 30$ for something that should cost 70.

u/bondjaybond · 7 pointsr/Filmmakers

I recently picked up almost everything on this list so I can give you an honest opinion and I'm a vfx artist trying to get out there and shoot my own content.

The fisheye....we never use it. We shot a prom and that was the only time we used it, and that was for b-roll because the kids loved it.

Definitely pick up the Sigma 30mm f/1.4. It's such a great lens! I almost use if for everything I do, but it's also good to have a wide angle lens. I currently use one of my buddy's which is a Canon 17mm-85mm.

Nodal Ninja I haven't seen before, but looks great.

Video tripod is good, I use a Manfrotto 502 but it's way more expensive, so this looks like a decent alternative. Also, the quick release plates are awesome. You'll eventually want to pick up tonnes of these. I used 2 yesterday to put on both the bottom of my new slider, as well as the top. I have one on my cage as well.

You can probably do without the Shoulder Rig for now. You may consider using the Kamerar Tank 2 cage with rail system to hook up the Kamerar Follow Focus. I found that once I got my Tank, I just disassembled the shoulder rig and never used it since. The Glidecam is something that I've been considering as my next purchase. Check out my thread asking about the glidecam.

Definitely grab the NTG-2 and possibly a Zoom H4N. The sound quality is fantastic. You need an XLR cable, windshield, boompole, and a shock mount.

Kamerar's Follow Focus is solid. It gets a little cramped using a smaller lens, the follow focus, and a matte box though. You have to tinker with teeth to learn how you need to set it up properly so that the teeth don't slip.

The Matte Box, while nice to look at, hasn't proven it's worth to me. I shoot with the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and because the lens is so short, the matte box does very little to block out light. I just got the new "donut" in the mail yesterday so maybe that will help, but I wouldn't advise getting it when you can spend that money on something else.

And the backpack is pretty awesome, definitely worth picking up. If you travel to shoots I would recommend the Pelican 1510 to store all your stuff in.

I would also recommend grabbing a couple LED lights and the batteries and charger. These things are a life saver. I'll be picking up a third this week.

I hope this helped you out a bit. Like I said I was in a similar situation to you a couple months ago, but everything's coming together now. If you have any more specific questions about any of this, let me know. Take care.

u/david57strat · 7 pointsr/flashlight

Over the past five years, the Pelican 1010 case has remained my go to battery case - even for traveling. Water proof, dust proof, shock proof, with a one-way air purge valve.

I use them for 18650s, 26650s, 16340s, ad 14500s.

Superb cases for the money

Here's the direct link to Pelican's site.

Here is a Pelican distributor.

Here, on Amazon - killer price for Prime members

u/sfiodsh · 6 pointsr/smashbros

Pelican cases have to be some of the most durable things ever. It is as if Nintendo gave them a big supply of Nintendium.

But seriously, these things are amazing for keeping your stuff safe. It looks like OP used a 1200, , which is a really nice size. You can store it in your bag and not worry about your controller getting torked.

u/23458357234839742389 · 6 pointsr/Tools

I own one of these myself, and smile everytime I get to use it. I love so much about it. My favorite parts are the quick response when shorting the leads checking continuity, great display, data logging graph capabilities, and the visual continuity indicator. So much more too.

I paid full price for mine. Meter, case, AC amp clamp, and thermocouple ran me $800. You REALLY got a great price.

It may be big, but I have smaller meters for handheld operation if need be. Definitely buy the strap to hang it when using.

I bought this Pelican case for mine. You can get it with foam and pick removable pieces out to fit the meter and accessories. In mine, I have the meter, leads, lead adapters, thermocouple, and AC amp clamp.

Edit: Here's two pictures of my case setup

u/arbarnes · 6 pointsr/wicked_edge

A 3-piece razor is liable to break if you travel with it assembled. The guard you link will protect the blade, but won't do anything to keep the head of the razor from snapping off.

You've got three good options. Keep an extra razor at your girlfriend's, disassemble the razor whenever you travel, or put it in a hard case that will protect it from breakage (preferably with cut-outs that keep the razor from shifting around). Something like the Pelican 1010 can hold a razor, a small brush, and a shave stick.

u/UndeadCaesar · 6 pointsr/photography

I've kept mine in this bag, which is perfect. Build quality has been really good so far, and it's big enough to hold my DSLR + kit lens, a 50mm prime, as well as two GoPros, their respective cases, multiple mounting solutions, a small GorillaPod tripod, and pockets for SD cards/readers, manuals, spare batteries, and chargers as well.

u/Mikeh12 · 6 pointsr/photography

Not sure where you're located, so here's the UK link, and here's the US link

u/ParkaBoi · 6 pointsr/Nikon

In your position I'd keep the 18-55 until you get a replacement. The 35mm has the same field of view as 52.5 lens on an FF body so you won't have anything at the wide end and there is not a lot of money to be made selling kit lenses, so keep it for the moment.

I have an Amazon Basics sling backpack that I'm very happy with. It's nice and light, can easily take a body, two lenses and other bits and bobs (battery, filters, etc.) and it's really well padded. Good price too.

u/beliall95 · 6 pointsr/legendarymarvel

This is what my legendary storage solution looks like

This is what I used. If you want ALL expansions you will need another. Unless you put the cards in vertical. I bought used dividers off board game geek and printed them at office max. Beware. Sometimes OfficeMax doesn't let you print them. Go in in person. Or try a different day/store.

u/hermit-the-frog · 5 pointsr/M43

I use this Ape Case that sits in the bottom of my backpack. It's basically a padded insert you can use with any bag.

The one I have is the perfect size for a M43 camera and 2 small lenses. Or for a larger camera and 1 lens. Or just the new 25mm f/1.2.

u/pslate · 5 pointsr/sffpc

This may be the bag you're thinking of. I have one and it fits perfectly. The pockets are big enough for my cables and a 60% keyboard.

u/GIS-Rockstar · 5 pointsr/photography

I wrote an article on intro DSLR kits on Amazon. I wouldn't bother unless you bundled them with your camera.

They're definitely crappy extra toys, but they may help you learn more about photography (by showing you how things make your image quality worse); but they also were kind of fun at the beginning and encouraged me to get out and shake the bugs off and dig into learning how to shoot good photos (and how extra toys don't really help). Everyone takes shitty photos at the start anyway, so you're not missing much; and it's not a ton of extra money over grabbing a body/kit lens/good SD card; but if you already have your camera kit, you can skip it for sure.


Those are strong enough for point and shoot cameras at most. Especially with a telephoto lens, the tilt arm is likely to fail and it'll fall on sensitive optical mechanics. Those are in the $10 price range. Spend at the very least closer to $30 on a tripod, and a $100-ish tripod will be a safe, and useful tool to use with your precision imaging equipment.

tl;dr - Sure, it's a waste of a little money, but they can be kind of fun toys. Burn the tripod.

Stuff I'd suggest getting:

  • 2-3 nice SD cards: Class 10, 32-64 GB each

  • Another few cheaper (but still fast) SD cards: 4-8 GB

  • Solid tripod. $30 or $100 is well worth the money

  • Rocket blower. Avoid touching the lens, whenever possible and never touch the sensor. A lens cloth should be plenty. Avoid being tempted to use a wet cleaning kit on the lens or the sensor if possible

  • I love my big, cheap camera bag. I have 3 lenses, and a speedlight and this is perfect for me. I wear it across my chest and carry it on my lower back where it's out of the way and easy to deal with 95% of the time.

  • An Intervalometer that matches your camera

  • Manual flash that can tilt & swivel

  • Flash triggers are fun and work great with those cheap $10 tripods. Check for great tutorials and inspiration

  • Flash gels can be fun creative tools too. Can you tell I'm getting into playing with off-camera speedlights?
u/qupada42 · 5 pointsr/sysadmin

With only three sites it's probably still easier to have the tools on hand; I'd suggest buying a couple of Pelican cases and some padlocks. Leave a set of tools at sites two and three that you know no-one will have gotten into in your absence.

A 1400 (~12x9x5" interior) would hold about all of the things you've described.

u/AmbiguouslyPrecise · 5 pointsr/photography

Sounds like you're looking for a pelican case.

u/fluffy_butternut · 5 pointsr/guns

Recently traveled on American with firearm for the first time. They did make me open the case on each leg of the trip to put the signed acknowledgement in.

Also used pelican case the "carry on sized" one and Abus locks.

In the Omaha airport they just tossed the case on the carousel with all the other luggage. The other airports were better at following policy.

I estimate it added 15 minutes to each departure and arrival. Was mostly amazed at how easy it was.

u/W45N7M38R0 · 5 pointsr/Tools
u/iHaveADD · 5 pointsr/Watchexchange

No offense OP, but I just bought a Pelican 1120 case from Amazon for $24, and it holds 4 watches after cutting out the foam. It is also crush proof and watertight.

They sell smaller sizes for cheaper prices too ($17.49):

u/bobbfwed · 5 pointsr/AskPhotography

First things that come to my mind:

  1. This tripod is so absolutely fantastic, and cheap!
  2. A fast lens or two. Either a zoom at f/2.8, or my suggestion would be a prime (50mm or 85mm -- or both) at f/1.4 or f/1.8. These primes will yield incredible results, and are reasonably priced.
  3. A flash. Something that can be used off or on camera. Something you can slave/master would be best.
  4. A polarizer for your best lens(es). Polarizers make a huge difference when taking landscape photos or photos with a lot of reflections.
  5. One of these two backpacks could make being mobile so much easier! This one or this one. I have owned the first for a couple years now -- taken it all around the world, don't have a single complaint.

    Hope some of these ideas help.
u/Sether2121 · 5 pointsr/yugioh

It's just a quartz banger. Not Quave, Halen, HE, or any brand anyone would care about. Does the same job as a $10 DHGate banger.

Thanks! Non-referral link works great and everything was in stock as of a second ago.

Wow, prices are crap though.

I was looking at a 1510 carry-on size for my laptops and Amazon has it at $169.18 & FREE SHIPPING (You Save: $102.77 (38%)), B&H has it for $146.22 + free shipping already.

u/throwback · 4 pointsr/sailing

I have one of these and I love it. Pair it with a Pelican Case for your wallet and cellphone and you're all set.

u/jtriangle · 4 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

I wouldn't be worried about heat as much as I would about water or moisture. Lithium batteries and water don't play nice. I'd invest in a little pelican case for your stuff, that way you won't have to worry if you get rained on.

One of these should work: and a bit of foam for cushion and you're good to go. Keep it out of the sun and it shouldn't be an issue.

u/Drache · 4 pointsr/photography

Amazonbasics Camera Bag

Fairly reasonable, I really like it. Feels solid, lots of compartments. Also rather discrete so no one guesses it's a camera bag.

u/MettaWorldWarTwo · 4 pointsr/magicTCG

Amazon Basic DSLR Bags work great to carry your gear. However, I'd suggest figuring out what formats and decks you're realistically going to play and only bring what makes sense. This also limits the risk in case someone bag swipes you. I carry the linked DSLR bag with 1 EDH decks, and either my Modern or Standard deck along with associated supplies (sleeves, dice, mat). That's still ~$1200 but it's less than others I know who carry all their decks at once. Before I head out, I pull decks that I might want to play that night, narrow it down and then pack my bag. For FNM, I'll only carry a single deck. For a casual day, I'll carry 3-4 depending on the formats we might play (2 Pauper, 1-2 EDH, Modern Jank).

We have a private Discord for the people who are regulars at the LGS and I'll figure out if anyone wants to borrow a deck and I might bring one or two to loan out. Figure out what formats you're going to play before heading out and load up. Leave everything else at home.

u/Tropicalkings · 4 pointsr/EDH

As stated in other comments a cheap DSLR backpack will work well.

Another option is a part organizer:

This one can hold up to 12 double sleeved EDH decks.

Always be on the lookout, some of the best deckboxes out there are not made for cards but happen to work better than branded crap. I like to use the boxes my cellphone came in to hold whatever deck I take to FNM.

u/TonyDarko · 4 pointsr/photography

That was an excellent and thoughtful gift, kudos to you. Aside from the lenses, there are a few other things that help a lot when starting out in photography (I'm just figuring this out as I'm pretty new):

  • A tripod can help if he wants to take low-light pictures and set up really long shutter times (it basically makes it so that no shaking messes up his pictures) and it can help to take pictures of you guys. I'm planning on bringing one for a trip with my girlfriend and I so we can take cool pictures where there may not be other people to help out.

  • A good bag or backpack would be great, increasingly so as the amount of gear that he has goes up. It's tough to carry around all that crap, and these bags make it pretty easy to fit.

  • a strap, pretty self explanatory. carrying around a DSLR in one hand sucks.

  • Extra memory cards and possibly an external hard drive are nice because RAW camera files take up a toooon of storage and having backups is always nice in the case that a really important picture gets corrupted.

    As for lenses:

    Nikon 35mm prime (basically allows him to take pretty nice, wide open landscape pictures at great quality)

    50mm prime widely regarded as the best starting lens (another no zoom lens that is an all-around all-star that is pretty versatile. good for portraits, landscapes, etc)
u/Moaks · 4 pointsr/photography
This is the bag I just got, it is great at storing my Canon 6D along with a lens and several filter pouches, I am not 100% sure, but I think it will have enough room for a second standard lens. Also the back is SUPER padded, feels like I'm carrying a cloud.

u/frappypants · 4 pointsr/SexToys

My favorite is to use DSLR camera bags. You can get them cheaply on Amazon.

  • Shoulder version
  • Larger backpack

    They have movable velcro dividers, so you can rearrange the compartments however you like. It also allows you to keep things separate- i.e. storing the silicone lube away from the silicone toys.
u/fuzzyping · 3 pointsr/boostedboards
  • Helmet, as others have mentioned. Find one that fits you well. I wear a Bell Segment because it's the only one that fits my melon properly.
  • Pads. I love my G-Form PRO-X knee and elbow pads. They're soft, flexible, lightweight, and thin, but on impact they transform into a hard protective layer.
  • Backpack. Something like the Chrome Barrage Cargo is great because of the netting which can be used for your helmet, but my daily pack is a Timbuk2 Alcatraz. It's just enough bag that I can carry a first-aid kit, spare belts, skateboard tool, charger, pads and helmet. Riding the board (with pads and helmet on) I don't even notice it's there.
  • Flatland 3D bash guards and remote ring.
  • Spare lanyards. My original lanyard ripped off when I caught it on a chainlink fence. Got a pack of these spares from Amazon.
  • Flat sole shoes. I go my Vans but whatever you like.
u/themcan · 3 pointsr/M43

Amazon Basics has a couple sizes of camera bag that could be an option; I have the larger and it fits my old P&S, camcorder, and EM10ii w/ pancake and 2 lenses (and all the assorted chargers and spare batteries for all the devices) with room to spare. I wouldn't call it a great solution if you're looking for something to wear on a hike or out on the town for an evening, but if you're just looking for something to keep your gear together to easily be able to take in your car, the price can't be beat.

u/VRegg · 3 pointsr/Vive

I'm guessing everything will be consolidated into one box unlike the Dev units to make shipping easier. I'd doubt they put much thought into a portable case.

But don't worry I am sure there will be third parties that release a custom case. In the meantime, you can search for "Gadget Bag" on Amazon and other retailers. I could see many of the larger bags designed to accommodate a big DSLR cameras working well. Just don't forget to measure and account for the extra space needed for the tether.

I think something like this would work well, and the orange would be a nice touch to make it aperture sciency.

u/The_Dead_See · 3 pointsr/telescopes

I drove my 8" dob around in the backseat of my car for years just wrapped in an old sleeping bag. It never got damaged. I didn't even have to re-collimate it that often. I'd hesitate to use a blanket that has lots of loose fibers and pilling, just because you don't want stuff to get down onto the primary mirror, but something with a tight weave like a nylon or polyester sleeping bag is perfect.

These days I keep my EPs in a cheap pluck foam case. It's plenty hard enough to protect them and keep them organized. However for years I just kept them in the little cardboard boxes they came in, inside an old padded picnic cooler bag. Worked fine.

u/janesmb · 3 pointsr/AskPhotography

Amazon Basics backpack and smaller gadget bag.
I don't normally take a laptop but there's room for one in the backpack. Depending on how full it is, plenty of length for a water bottle, I'd probably just tie one on tho.

u/davebrook · 3 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

I got these ... not great but they do the trick and I like that you can pop them off super easily.

u/zp42 · 3 pointsr/AskPhotography

I have the Large Orange interior Amazon Basic one and it does the job for me.

u/deilin · 3 pointsr/photography

This Canon backpack is extremely nice for the price ($40). The only real drawback is that it has a big "Steal me!" Canon logo on the front. However, people have modified their bags to remove or cover up that logo, making it ideal for carrying a good amount of stuff. I have this one and am able to carry my 70-200 2.8IS (attached or not) as well as 2-3 other lenses and accessories.

u/LeftyRodriguez · 3 pointsr/photography

I have a Canon backpack that is pretty decent, but I've started to outgrow it and am kind of looking for something new.

u/walksimos · 3 pointsr/Multicopter

I'm currently using a Pelican 1400 case, which features customizable foam and a waterproof, super durable shell.

Its latches make a supremely satisfying click, it looks professional, and I have complete confidence that the transmitter is protected.

u/threewheeldrive · 3 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

Awesome! Thanks for the compliment! I already had the pelican 1200 case, but you can order the "pick and pluck" foam inserts off amazon separately. I especially like this one because of how secure everything is, and because the case is waterproof.

Here is a link for the exact case, with the "Pick n' Pluck" foam.

Although I would urge you to check out their website for other cases that might be a little bigger and flatter.

u/insaneturbo13 · 3 pointsr/mflb
u/yerffej · 3 pointsr/smashbros

Mine was given to me, I don't know the exact model but I think this one is similar. I can look at it later when I'm off work and let you know what I have.

u/schwack · 3 pointsr/Vaping101

My setup is a little unique because I tend to go a little overboard on e-liquids and tanks. I've gone through about 5 or 6 mods since I've started vaping, and have been content with clearomizer setups for a while now. Although with the new Kanger Subtank i picked up, I'm anxious to get into building RDA's.

This is the case I got for Christmas, and the price is good. The thing I like about most is it's toughness and removable foam. The whole inner bottom half of the case has foam installed like a grid. You just remove only the squares you want to make the case cater to your setup. I generally take the case with me anytime I hang out with my vaping buddies, or when I'm vaping at the stores.
Here are some pics of my humble setup. , , and

I keep a couple juices in there, always have spare coils for my setup and for friends who may need one in a pinch, a spare tank to switch up my flavors, and batteries if I so desire. I've seen a lot of people who are really into rebuilding use tackle boxes for a similar purpose. I just preferred the toughness and flexibility of this one.

u/Fargonian · 3 pointsr/gundeals

Bought three of these the other day after seeing this deal on Uzitalk, they look very similar to a Pelican 1200 case at half the price.

u/Bojiminy · 3 pointsr/cigars

Haven't tried it, But perhaps a Pelican case? Airtight, watertight, and a spot for a padlock. They're durable as all hell, too. Anyway, just a thought.

Extremely heavy but pelican cases are basically indestructible and have clasps that are reinforced with metal and have holes for locks.

Pelican 1510-000-110 Carry On Case with Pick 'N' Pluck Foam (Black)

u/kabbage123 · 3 pointsr/videography

I use a Pelican 1510 with Ruc Pac backpack conversion.

u/KingKasey · 3 pointsr/livesound

Not a backpack but , Ive been using a pelican 1510 for a while .Traveling with it has been better than most back packs I've owned and better protected.

u/MacintoshEddie · 3 pointsr/backpacking

What you're looking for is a pack with a good, sturdy hip belt. The hip belt transfers most of the weight onto your hips, rather than your shoulders and thus your spine. A lot of cheaper backpacks will just have waist/hip straps rather than belts, and really all they do is keep the pack from flopping around rather than supporting weight. Hip belts are not magic though, and even with the best support in the world you might still experience back pain.

You should be able to go into just about any hiking/camping store and talk to an employee there who can get you fitted(different people have different shaped bodies, and especially with spinal issues you need a pack that fits right), and offer recommendations.

If you haven't looked already, depending on what you need to transport a rolling case might be a better idea. Something like this Pelican 1510 carry on case which has wheels. On a bus it's not going to take up much more space than a pack will, and you can use it as a portable seat.

What sort of gear are you transporting?

Edit: This is an example of a waist strap and this is an example of a hip belt. They are just the first two options I saw on the website, I don't have experience with either of the packs but I tend to hear good things about Osprey.

u/responds-with-tealc · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Skip Skullcandy, please.

Read this buying guide from /r/headphones. Sure SE215s are one of the standard suggestions. The price isn't ludicrous, they are extremely durable, and the cables are easily replaceable (the part that fails 99% of the time). There are cheaper options if you don't want to spend that much, but not with the replaceable cable.

The most important thing you can do to make your headphones last is don't wind them up and shove them in your pants pocket, bag pocket, and for the love of god don't leave them plugged in to your phone and wound around the screen. Get a small hard shell case for them and use it to transport your earbuds when they aren't in use.

If you want to get fancy, get a tiny pelican case and some pick + pluck foam. Or just get an old Altoids mint tin and glue some miscellaneous thin padding in to it.

I use IEMs for ~5 hours a day, 5 days a week, and have never broken a pair. I've got excessively nice custom IEMs and a great case now, but I used the same strategy for years beforehand with much cheaper stuff.

u/swordknight · 3 pointsr/headphones

Invest in a hard case and gently wrap your IEMs and place them in.

You can try looking into Pelican Cases. They make little watertight boxes perfect for rugged activities. You can't use your phone while it's in the case, but it's a great protection for things you're not using during hiking: phone, keys, ID, cash, credit card.

u/levins0 · 3 pointsr/PipeTobacco

Personally, I'd keep the tobacco stuff separate from the gameboy using two smaller cases (actually, I'd probably put the gameboy in a dry bag rather than a box/case).

If you want a hard case for all of that, best bet is probably a Pelican case similar to this one: https: // . Note that this is a small one -- you probably need something larger.

The other option would be a Lock&Lock container like this one:

It's not as tough as the Pelican, but it's cheaper and still water/air tight. Again, watch the sizes to make sure you get something that fits.

u/Numero5 · 3 pointsr/amiibo

I've heard that the smaller cases (like the mushroom case) and the cube-shaped ones are pretty useless unless you don't care about protection, as you basically just throw them in there and pray they don't get scratched or banged up during transport.

I've seen some people around here use this case:

There's some customer photos on that page, it looks good.

The Hori case looks pretty nice too, and Hori is known for making quality products. Less storage space though:

And if you're looking for something that's, like, completely padded and EXTRA safe, I've seen some users recommend camera/equipment cases like this:

u/tchefacegeneral · 3 pointsr/photography

The whole idea of having a SLR is the ability to change lenses in my opinion. Sure you could use a decent walk around lens like your 15-85 but stretching it any more leads to noticeable drop in quality. I never use to like carrying more than one lens untill i got this bag
Now I carry all 4 of my lenses AND my tripod (and remote timer, lens cleaning kit, flashlight for light painting) with me EVERY time I go out to take photos. It means you will have far less missed opportunities.

Currently you have a nice general purpose lens. The main thing it is missing is speed. A fast prime would probably work really well for you, especially if you carry around both lenses. Lots of people find 50mm a bit long on a crop and many people go with the 25-35 range for their first prime. Look through you photos and see what focal length most of them are at and pick that lenght (there is a program that can scan all your images and give you stats on focal length and other settings used but I can remember the name)

u/yourotherusername · 3 pointsr/photography

I've got the one of the slingshot bags and I love it. Used it with my d50, took it hiking, camping, skiing and flying. Love it. Now I have my D5100 in it and it is still great, + holds 2 other lenses, my flash, batteries, cards and my charger. Easy access to all things. has an all weather cover too, only used that once, but glad I had it.

Not so sure it is 'inconspicuous'.

u/mau5inthehau5 · 3 pointsr/djimavic

I have a Lowepro Slingshot 202 and I can fit my Sony a6000, 2 small lenses, 1 medium zoom, 3 extra camera batteries, a couple filters, Mavic and controller, JOBY GorillaPod, and charging cables for camera and Mavic. I'll try to remember to update tonight with some pictures of my setup with some measurements.

u/chucksense · 3 pointsr/photography

You won't find a faster lens with comparable focal lengths in your price range. You might be able to get a 24-105mm f/4L very used at that price, but new it is more than 3x that.

Your best bet is to invest in a faster lens that doesn't cover the same focal length and keep the 28-135mm around for flexibility. Alternately, upgrading the 50mm f/1.8 to the 50mm f/1.4 is a great move: better picture quality, better build quality, much more accurate auto-focus, and nicer bokeh.

In my mind, however, take that $300 and save it. Your needs are fairly well enough met that buying another $300 lens doesn't add much value. If you are truly dedicated to upgrading, save that $300, the next $300, the $300 after that, and one more time: then get yourself some truly nice glass.

Regarding bag, I've had great success with the Lowepro SlingShot AW series. It's a single-strapped backpack that swings under your arm for quick access. It's less than $100. It might not be quite what you are looking for, but they are great bags. B&H Link | Amazon Link

Ape Case Cubeze Interior Case for Cameras - Black/Yellow (ACQB33)

I recently got this very cheap insert and I like it. Fits my X-E2 plus three lenses, and you can wedge in a strap and batteries. Probably not big enough for your gear though, but I like it because I can just throw it in my Kelty backpack or Boreas pack which I already own instead of getting a new bag :P

u/rabton · 3 pointsr/photography

For your third question, I use a normal backpack with a padded insert. I bought this one and it's great. It fits perfectly snug into the bottom of a bag I had and it fits my K-50, 50-200 zoom, and 18-35 zoom. I've also got a pancake lens that sits in there (though it does get tight).

Take what you will as someone who's really, really casual about photography, but I haven't really used filters. I hear the cheap ones can mess with the quality of your picture. The one big accessory that's been helpful for me is a remote shutter release. Makes it so easy to take pictures when the camera is on a tripod and you want to avoid any shaking.

u/zdierks · 2 pointsr/itookapicture

I have this one and love it. Make sure you get one that puts the camera at the top of the bag, not the bottom. I think the camera body is better protected that way.

What is a good camera hiking backpack for Canon EOS Rebel T5i?

Some details: this is a gift for my girlfriend, and it's her first camera. The hikes are just DAY hikes, so no need for a large, overnight backpack. Only needs to hold the camera, a couple lenses, and (optionally) a tripod. Looking for something under $150.

Thanks in advance!

edit: I saw this on Amazon. Any thoughts?

u/zeimbo · 2 pointsr/photography

i own [this bag] ( by canon, its waterproof/resistant- whatever the term is. it can fit a laptop depending on size of the laptop. if you have a 17" laptop- youre gonna be hardpressed to find a bag to fit it anyway, or even a bulky 15" laptop. its nice to have a bag that fits both to get on a plane or light travel, but if youre gonna be trekking your gear on a hike to take shots then i wouldnt worry about carrying the laptop.
this is the [tripod] ( i bought about 6 months ago. the quality is awesome, you dont want some cheap tripod holding $2500 worth of camera gear.

[here] ( is a review of the tripod if youre interested.

i also have the 7d, i got a used battery off ebay for $35 shipped that works perfect, otherwise cheapest online is like $60+shipping for new.

some other recommended gear if you have the money- buying or renting a 70-200 f4L, buying or renting a wide angle lens (im sure hawaii has beautiful wide landscapes) if youre interested in something like that. [] (

edit: actually for the price, if youre gonna rent the 70-200- i would rent the 2.8 non-is version cuz its only like $12 more for a 4 day rental. and for wide angle, id recommend the tokina 11-16mm..

u/trackpete · 2 pointsr/photography

When I travel I prefer to go modular - usually that means throwing a sling into my backpack, then sticking a body + lense or two into the sling when I'm out and about. Even if I'm carrying a ton of gear, I'll often leave most of it in a hostel/etc. and just bring what I need for the day with me - it sucks to carry even a 55L pack around when you don't need it.

For general travel I really like the simple Canon camera bag with all the badging ripped off - I will typically put it inside a larger backpack or a waterproof duffel when I travel, giving me another modular layer (sometimes I carry that bag, sometimes just the sling, sometimes I have to carry it all).

Good luck!

u/Octopus46 · 2 pointsr/oculus

Judging from this, and knowing that the strap is about 1.6 inches high (40mm for standard ski goggle straps); I would confidently wildly guesstimate that the DK2 is about 4.1 inches high.

I wonder if this, this, or this might work as cheap options? Althought they all seem to be cutting it very tight on the depth. I am assuming the DK2 would sit in the case like it would sit on a table (like the first photo above), and not facing upward like they packaged it in the DK1 case, since there are a lot less case options that would fit it that way (without being huge)...

I have one of those ebay metal cases for my photo gear. I'm guessing you would be able to fit two full DK2 kits in it. They look decent and are affordable, but I find mine to be a bit heavy (5.5 pounds empty) and a bit awkward to carry sometimes (if I load it heavy specially). Even though they look decent, there is something about the build quality that feels slightly cheap when you handle it; specially the locking hinges. Nothing terrible in particular, but it just doesn't have that awesome quality feel of expensive cases like an HPRC, a Pelican or a Seahorse would have. But it does get the job done.

We should really know the actual DK2 dimensions (plus the accessories) before choosing a case. The hardest dimensions to accommodate will be the depth, since most small cases are also shallow.

I bought a "Cigar Caddy" 5-stick travel case (amazon) 5 months ago and have been satisfied with the purchase. It is a little small and won't fit 5 bigger-gauge sticks, but it is just wide enough to fit a few NUBs vertically on one end.

Bonus, I got to handle it and a friends OtterBox dry box at the same time, and can confirm they come off the same assembly line. Only the sticker was different. This is also the same product as the "Herf-a-Dor" seen here.

If you are really rough on them, maybe re-purpose a Pelican like this one?

u/abnormica · 2 pointsr/canadaguns

I was just thinking about this. I picked up a Pelican 1200 on Amazon for $39.99 as part of last year's Black Friday sale. It's currently listed as $67, but I think this is somewhat of a mainstay for their annual sale. I don't know that it's 'non-bulky', but it's definitely strong and the pick and pluck foam makes for a nice custom fit for my 1911.

u/SleepyHolly · 2 pointsr/Multicopter

With the Pelican 1510, I assume you mean you want a case that can fit under FAA's maximum carry on size with rollers and handle plus all the usual pressure o-ring...

Google's top hit is on Amazon for $170 sold by Pelican

MCM's equivalent is the 24130 for $77: "22 inch Rolling Black Weatherproof Equipment Case with Telescopic Handle"

I'm not associated with MCM or these cases. I do however bought a similarly sized one for my gear and love it. The build quality is only about 90% of Pelican but for most of us that don't do trade shows should be perfectly fine with these. Alternatively, buy two of these from MCM for less than the Pelican version of your case.

If you get some spare batteries, I'd recommend a water resistant case like the pelican 1010, that'll help keep the moisture off em and 65mm long cells (18650, 26650) fit great in those.

Also if you're looking for more cells, is a reputable site for batteries and I think the keeppower ones would work, specially mentions the L6.

> Not to get too flyertalk-y, but what rental company? I'm crossing my fingers w/ National as an executive member that they'll have a convertible or something decent (fun) on the aisle.

  • I paid for my entire trip with points/miles. All the car rental companies are very similar. I used Budget since it was the cheapest. The cost was ~3,338 pts/day using my Sapphire Reserve through Chase's booking site. (YMMV)

  • /u/manachar made some great points from a local perspective. However, I don't think renting a convertible is impractical for visitors. Driving around a beautiful Hawaiian island with the top down was a wonderful feeling and I wouldn't want it any other way. But that's my preference. I'm from the midwest where people appreciate any opportunity to feel the warm open air when driving.

  • Car theft is a problem in many areas of Hawaii and nearly all Mustangs/Camaros are being driven by tourists. However, a little common sense goes a long way. Don't walk away with the top down. Don't keep valuables in the car.

  • Also, a general point to consider is what you'll do with the key fob when you go to the beach. I did not want to leave my belongings on the beach unattended, so I bought a Pelican 1010 case to keep my key fob, cash, and cards dry when snorkeling.

  • A majority of the roads are in great condition. Some back roads and parking lots can be rough but I never felt that the Mustang was incapable of handling them.

    > I'd like to as I've heard good things, and some of the stops (e.g., waterfalls) seem interesting, but I'm not sure if I'm up for a day-long drive or doing this as an overnight trip. I might look into one of the tours

    It was a great experience but over-hyped in my opinion. I would still recommend it. There are several beautiful waterfalls, cliffs, distant scenic landscapes, and hikes (although most hiking I did was in West Maui).

    > I've heard! I guess that's a perk of this being a work trip!

    In that case, check out Mama's Fish House! It's costly, but worth it. You'll need to make a reservation days in advance.

Seconded on the RX100 II. a point and-shoot is what you want. I have multiple cameras (Sony a7, canon t2i, sony rx100 II) and I only carry the rx100 when going on light-and-fast trips.

As a beginner photographer, you don't want to be buying a bunch of lenses. the rx100 has a zoom lens, so you can get both wide and tight shots.

You probably won't be taking photos of the stars and such, so you don't need a bigger sensor. (But the rx100 CAN do's a shot I took with mine:

Finally, you can put an rx100 in a pelican case to make it bombproof:

In short, get an rx100. you'll probably be shooting in auto mode for a bit, but there's plenty of room to increase your knowledge when you decide to.

All depends on how expensive they are. My SE215's stay in the little clamshell case they came with. But my Samsung default earphones I got with my S5 just rattle around in a pocket.

u/dolichoblond · 2 pointsr/Watches

Depends on if you want to display them or not. There are a ton of display type cases. Wolf Designs gets good marks and is well stocked in North America. You can go way up in price from there.

Pelican cases are also great, functional, DIY solutions. Especially if you have a collection with lots of sizes, extra straps, etc. There are a lot of threads at WUS discussing sizes and showing layout possibilities; I followed something like this one. Then I got a smaller case, the Pelican 1050 which I use for traveling. Since I made the holes for the pipe-wrap the same size, I can just grab 2 watches out of the big box and quick swap them into the small case and head out the door. It works so well I even got another 1050 that has 1 watch slot and 1 space for cufflinks or strap changes or other random stuff. It's heavy and big but for business trips where you're basically wearing a suit & watch or sleeping, I'm not sweating the luggage space.

I noticed that the Pelican cases are super-expensive on the site. You can definitely get them for cheaper (ebay) and perhaps even local. Heck, for the price difference you can drive to BUF. Check camera shops as they tend to stock them, although usually the larger sizes (not sure about Futureshop...maybe Vistek?? or smaller shops?)

EDIT: not all pelican cases come with foam. especially true with the smaller ones. sometimes there are two options (with and without) when ordering online. just fyi as I don't want you getting stuck with double shipping if you do order online from the south.

Conterra Med-Pouches on our belts

We use the carpuject system, and carry Morphine, Fentanyl, Versed and Valium in the pouch. While I do love the ease of access for pain management, seizures, etc. I will say the pouches themselves offer little protection against impact. Due to this my agency is currently researching other options, such as Pelican hard cases inside a large pouch.

My previous job (Private EMS) used the Pelican 1040 to hold Morphine and Valium inside a massive pouch - on smaller Medics it looked like they were carrying a tablet on their hip. All kidding aside however, I'll take the protection the Pelican's offer from the chaotic environment of the field over the comfort/discreetness of the Conterra.

Fellow rider here... I like to store some of my equipment in pelican cases. Pretty rugged and will add a decent layer of protection for your phone/wallet. I'm guessing you're not interested in the tankbag route, but check out a few links I'll list below:

EDIT: I saw you prefer the items to be securely closed inside, so a grid-it could be an option inside one of the AmazonBasics cases or a similar case... but not as likely your problem solver...

and another option would be (if you didn't want to zip it up each time but wanted it to remain secure under the seat) to add a grid-it organizer

Hope one of these helps.

I'm currently using one of these myself, and it's pretty good. If I take out all the velcro padding, I can fit all six of my Legion Hoard Plus deck boxes, but it's a pretty snug fit. With the straps, I can fit four of them, as well as two Ultra Pro Pro-Dual deckboxes. (Not a plug for those items or anything, just offering them up for scale.) It has a few side straps over a pocket on the side (meant to hold a camera tripod) that you can use for a playmat, but only if you don't plan on using one of those plastic carry tubes.

I’ve got the one without the laptop pocket, with the black interior. It’s surprisingly really well structured and I’ve worn it to lifestyle sessions where I’ve been sprinting chasing around 5 year olds at a park and it’s still comfortable (With the cross body straps fastened)

It’s on the small side, but I’m 5’2 so that’s exactly what I need. It doesn’t feel cheap at all. I’ve paid more than triple for worse quality backpacks. I fit four lenses (35L/50 f1.4/135L primes and a small zoom), two bodies and a speedlite in there plus all the accessories that go with that.

Professor recommends the AmazonBasics camera backpack, giving it an A rating for carrying deck boxes. I don't know how well those deck boxes will fit in that bag, but it's probably worth a shot.

For the price, and the fact Im just starting out, you cant beat the Amazon Basics DSLR Backpack. Quality and design have held up great for me.

AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR/DSLR Cameras and Accessories - Black

u/_windfish_ · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

So for anyone looking around for a good bag to carry 10-15 deckboxes, playmat, binder, notepad, dice, other accessories. Look for a camera backpack. Often they have them at thrift stores/Goodwill for $5-10 or less. They have foam dividers and sections on the inside that are perfect for deckboxes. Look for one with a side pocket meant for a tripod - this is perfect for a playmat tube.

The one I use is a Manfrotto almost identical to their Adventure bag but I got it from Costco for $40 and I love it, but I don't think they sell it anymore.

A lot of people swear by the Amazon Basics camera backpack.

u/mt61286 · 2 pointsr/photography

I use Amazon Basic's camera backpack to store 90% of my camera gear. I usually put it in my car in the morning, just in case I need it.

I also often use a waterproof backpack with a padded insert for day hiking and stuff.

u/ronakg · 2 pointsr/photography

I keep all my equipment in AmazonBasics backpack. That's my K-5 IIs, 2 zoom and 1 prime lens, Raynox 250 macro adapter, battery charger, few SD cards and cleaning kit. I may take out some or the other item depending on the trip.

While on the move, I use Fotasy Sling Neck Strap. I find it very comfortable and convenient to use.

u/SC-Viper · 2 pointsr/AskPhotography
  • I'm probably posting a cliche photography gift here but I absolutely love mine: Lens Mug

  • Can't go wrong with a BlackRapid Strap

  • If your brother takes a lot of landscapes and doesn't already have this must have tool in his gear which he should: Camera Remote Timer

  • If he's always on the go and seems struggle w/ carrying his tripod everywhere, I recommend getting him a Gorilla Pod

  • If he doesn't already have a great backpack for travelling while he is shooting his landscapes, I recommend Amazons Backpack for holding his gear. It's essentially a generic version of Canon's basic backpack.

    You can also find some fairly cheap "like new" film cameras on Craigslist along with some film.
    Film cameras are the best and it will probably be very nostalgic to the person you are gifting it to.

    I'm making the assumption that he has a Canon DSLR but you can find most of this gear if he has something like a Nikon, Sony, etc... One thing I love to receive to as a photography gift is more batteries! I use to shoot a lot of landscapes and I could never have enough of these.

    Anyways, hopefully you find something for your brother! Good luck!

u/Rogerwilco1974 · 2 pointsr/Filmmakers


I own a 600D, and I love it, so the camera is great. The kit that comes with it? Meh, it's ok. You've got the standard kit lens, so that's nothing special, and a bunch of lens cleaning bits which isn't anything special.

I doubt the wrist strap will get a lot of use. The desktop mini tripod thing? Handy if you're going to make a load of Youtube vlogs, but probably not if you want to make films seriously, like you say. You'd be better off going for a proper tripod with a nice pseudo-fluid head designed for video, not stills, so you can do smooth camera pans.

As far as the monopod goes, I've never used one, but they're more suited to stills photography, I feel. I don't think they'd be a lot more stable than just being hand-held.

The car charger is a nice idea, if you're going to be out a lot, but I bought an aftermarket battery grip from Amazon that came with 4 batteries, and lasts for ever!

The 32GB card is a great size, but is it going to be an unknown make of card that isn't fast enough to record a long video recording? I've not shot a lot of video on mine, but I've got 16GB Class 4 Sandisk cards, and I sometimes get the graphic on my monitor of the camera's internal buffer filling up, and have occasionally have recording stop on me, so you've got to have good, fast cards.

You do want a nice backpack, but it needs to be roomy enough to allow for some other lenses, and it's impossible to tell if that bag is big enough. I got one, again from Amazon, that is pretty good, and accommodates all my spare batteries, my 3 lenses (kit, 50mm & 70-300mm), my filters, mics, cleaning kit and cables and is well padded and pretty sturdy.

The filters pack might be nice, depending on what's included. It looks like a clear UV which is really only a lens front element protector, a fluorescent filter, and a neutral density filter, which is good if you're filming in bright conditions but want your iris wide open. Also, they'll only fit your kit lens. If WHEN you expand your lens collection, those won't fit it. Your best bet is a kit like this that allows you to put the same set of filters on to a range of different lenses..

What else? Oh, the telephoto lenses...Hmmm... I'd question how useful they are. It looks like those screw on to the front of your existing lens. It's my experience that those things give you a pretty soft picture. You might like that, but you'd be better off getting a proper telephoto lens.

I think that's it. Wow... I've not be very kind about that package, have I? If the price of that kit is the same as buying the camera on it's own, then you're not losing anything. You DO need a bag, a cleaning kit and spare batteries, so that's all fine.

But lenses & filters are things that you should only acquire when you realise you need them. The kit lens will be a nice start for you, if you're new to photography/filming. I VERY quickly found that I needed a zoom lens, so bought a cheapy Tamron 70-300mm for under a hundred quid that I like very much, as well as the famous Nifty Fifty mm f1.8 prime that gives me a great shallow depth of field, and is my favourite lens!

I hope this has been helpful!

u/bracomadar · 2 pointsr/photography

I have the T3 and if she is starting out on DSLRs and just want to shoot portraits in well lit areas, I'd say it's a great starter camera. You get a basic DSLR for really cheap. However, I like to shoot wildlife. While I can often take some good shots with the T3, there are times where I really wish I could pump up the ISO without a lot of noise and it had more AF points for tracking. I try to not take it above 400 ISO. If yall have kids and want to shoot sports, you might run into similar problems I have with wildlife sometime. I personally haven't tried shooting sports with it, but you might be trying to follow fast moving players (maybe at a night game) and that could cause some frustration. There's also been times when I really wish I had a flip out LCD screen.

I think what a lot of people fail to realize when buying a new camera is all the starter gear that you'll want/need. You'll want a backpack, or case to store the camera and lenses. This is the backpack I got. I really like it and it's cheap. I haven't taken it out in the field much and just use it mainly for storage at home, or in the car. She'll want a few lenses. You'll need a cleaning kit. She'll also eventually want a tripod, flashes, filters. This stuff, especially the lenses, tripod, and flashes will run you into the hundreds of dollars. It will also probably be the longer investment than the camera.

It might sound strange, but I would suggest you figure what all that other stuff will cost you and figure out how much you have left to spend on the camera body. If you're just starting out and don't have thousands of dollars to spend, the T3 is still a good camera to start out on and learn the basics. If after figuring the cost of lenses and other things and you find you have enough to spend on the T3i, or some better model, I say get her that. You don't have to necessarily get her the lenses and could just get her the T3 kit that comes with the 18-55 lens and a camera backpack just to start her out. I'm just saying that you should put some money aside so she can get a few good lenses and gear and not spend all you can afford on just a camera.

u/FoosYou · 2 pointsr/gopro

Hey there!

I currently have this right now.

In the main compartment I can fit my Nikon 3200 with a lens on it, as well as some spare lens (70-300, fisheye, 55-200) as well as a few spare things for my GoPro.

In the pockets on the front I have an o ring light and all the adapters for it.

There is still a zipper on the front I keep random stuff in.

And it had a Velcro spot on the side for your tripod :)

u/vwllss · 2 pointsr/photography

I just bought a Lowepro 302 AW. It was only $60 on sale on an obscure site, and I should be getting it soon! :) I'm excited. EDIT: I just checked and the deal is still going! Here's the SlickDeals link where I originally found it. $60 after coupon code. They sent an email saying it's backordered but only by a week or two.

If anyone is looking for a cheaper option, I almost went with this surprising product by Amazon. It's the cheapest photography backpack I've ever seen, and the reviews are actually very favorable. Of course I don't own it so I can't personally vouch for it.

u/GuerrillaApe · 2 pointsr/wiiu

I don't have it yet because I just purchased it, but I will be using this AmazonBasic bag. You are able to adjust the dividers in the bag, so you can have a main section for the console/gamepad and one for controllers. You can then store the cables and games in the pockets.

u/cwcoleman · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

Okay... I think we are getting closer to helping you define your requirements...

All your camping gear will be in a separate bag.
You need a bag to carry 2 big cameras, 3 big lenses, 2 big hard drives, extra batteries, and a gopro.

What do you estimate a bag this size would be in liters? 20 liters?
What do you estimate this kit to weigh? 20 pounds?

You plan to strap this extra gear bag to your chest? Carrying in at the same time as your camping gear bag? Then switch to wearing it on your back for your day trips?

Any special features you desire? Does it need to be waterproof? What about padding?

Do you have any bags that you've researched / considered? Do you have a bag now that holds / carries all this stuff? A starting point or frame of reference would help.

Would a bag like this do the job?

u/Royalhghnss · 2 pointsr/drones
u/icefreez · 2 pointsr/Multicopter

Another recommendation is the amazon basics pack.

It has a configurable inside padding. I can fit my Taranis in it, some repair tools, 10 - 15 batteries, and a small 10" laptop, and tie my quad on the outside.

u/lxkhn · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

u/dalix · 2 pointsr/photography

I have a Lowerpro bag I use for my T2i and I absolutely love it. I have the larger bag and am seriously considering also getting the Slingshot bag for walking around the city.

u/burning1rr · 2 pointsr/SonyAlpha

I do a lot of lens swaps in the field. A holster bag provides a safe way to swap lenses. I also like the LowePro Lens-Exchange pouches.

If you want something larger, my advice is to look for a rear-entry backpack. They are designed to be accessible without setting the bag down. And the design is less likely to drop your lenses if a zipper comes loose. I use the Mindshift Backlight.

If you still want something like the SL100, take a look at the LowePro slingshot. I have one that I'm not using anymore. If you live in the US, I'll give it to you for the price of shipping, and maybe a donation to a charity.

u/xsoccer92x · 2 pointsr/researchchemicals

u/highcenter · 2 pointsr/electronic_cigarette

I've been wanting the same, looking at this one.

It's a Pelican, so you know it's quality. Not sure if it's to big. It does float, so if I find myself wanting a maritime vape, suppose I'd be set. Alas, I remain undecided. Looking forward to other suggestions.

u/Ca5bah · 2 pointsr/arizer

Is what I use, is perfect.

u/lamic · 2 pointsr/gopro

So word on the street is the Hero5 will be coming out soon. I would wait until that happens and swipe up the Hero4 Silver or Black at a reduced price. These will be perfect for what you're looking to do and you can swap out SD cards and batteries. Something like this is good and it comes with an extra battery - should help keep you charged up for your trip. As far as your question about SD cards - not all SD cards work with GoPros. You can search around on this sub for more but personally I think the easiest thing to do is take the ones that they sell on their website and then go find a better price on amazon, newegg, etc.

As far as other accessories, I'll go ahead and throw out some of my personal favorites. I use this pole. It's really durable but you'll need to swap out their little tripod mount on the top that holds the camera in place for one of GoPro's tripod mounts (I can go into more detail if you need). I always keep my lens cover on mine whenever it's not in use or in my pocket just so I'm not scratching or smudging up the lens. The tool is great because it can be hard to tighten the thumbscrew sometimes to keep your camera in place. Even though it's a bit costly, the remote was totally worth it - especially if I'm around water and can't use the app on my phone to control the camera. Finally - you've got to have something to put it all in. I know there's cases out there that are made for GoPros + accessories but I love my pelican case because it's water proof and I know I can take it anywhere without ruining the stuff inside (i.e. SD cards, batteries, chargers, etc.). This is the one I have. In hindsight I wish I would have gotten one just slightly bigger so I could fit a few more things but I love it. Sorry that's a lot but I hope it helps.

u/anotherbrokephotog · 2 pointsr/photography

Crumpler 5mdh
Amazon basics sling pack (would carry all your stuff easily). Only reason I didn't like my sling pack was because I was overpacking it with gear. 17-50, 80-200, 50mm, 100mm, + flash + tripod. The seams started tearing on it, though they haven't given out. With less stuff flying around in it, I'd recommend.

Or anything by Crumpler or Lowepro

u/ThePnuts · 2 pointsr/djimavic

Friend of mine was doing this so I copied. it works extremely well.

Case Holds Mavic + Battery, 3 more batteries and my old note4 I use to fly with.

For quick grab and go, I grab that and the controller separate with the stick guards in a backpack or something.

For everything I have this:

Above case fits perfect inside it with the controller in the main pocket with lots of extra room. Top pocket has adv charger and phantom 4 charger plus props, etc. All in one bag essentially.

Its small and works well

u/d4vezac · 2 pointsr/Nikon

Third party flashes (Godox, Flashpoint, Yongnuo, Neewer) are quite good, and so are their radio triggers.

For cards, your D7200 has two slots. This can be important for redundancy if you shoot paid gigs, since a corrupted/lost card would be a bad thing.
Cards do come in different speeds, which will affect how quickly your buffer clears (important for sports where you may take a burst to catch the action). I’d use a pair of fast cards at smaller capacities (32 or 64 GB). Two 32s shooting raw gets me ~1300 shots, which has been enough for all but one or two events I’ve shot. I keep spares in my bag to swap during a performance’s intermission.

I use the cheaper Amazon Basics Sling and it holds my D7200 with 18-35 attached, 50-100, and 8 extra double As in the main pocket, with a flash, 50mm lens, wireless trigger, and a few cleaning supplies plus earplugs in the top. Barely. You can strap an additional flash to the outside if need be.

u/sstephen17 · 2 pointsr/photography

I'm an annual pass holder at Disneyland. My fiancee and I also went to Orlando and visited all the Disney parks there last year.

-I recommend getting the photo package as well, even if you plan on taking a lot of pictures yourself. They generally do a great job and add special Disney effects that are pretty cool.

-If it's a day long trip to the park, invest in a quality photo backpack. I used the [Dakine Mission Photo Backpack] ( when we went to Orlando. Keeps your gear secure, lots of room for extras, super comfortable, and even has a rain cover (which came in handy on multiple occassions)

-I got a separate memory card for each park I visited. Makes it easier to go through later, especially if you are looking for a specific picture at a specific location for instance

-Personally, I don't like neck straps so I got a Fotasy Neck Strap Very comfortable and I wore it whenever I wasn't on a ride.

u/Schneiderman · 2 pointsr/Nikon

For under $20 I think it's a great value. The quality is better than I expected, the pad and straps seem pretty tough. The clasp, while metal, seems a little cheap but it could be swapped out for a stronger one. I still have the original on there for now and it's been fine so far.

The thing that concerns me about this style of strap is that since it attaches with the tripod mount threads on the camera, if it unscrews... you'll drop your camera. I don't intend to ever use this style of strap without a safety. I put a loop of paracord through one of the swivels on the camera body and I can clip that to the strap so that if the bolt unscrews or the clasp breaks, the camera won't fall to the ground.

u/Zigo · 2 pointsr/photography

I actually still maintain that a camera insert and a good quality backpack from your brand of choice is the way to go with mirrorless setups. I carry an X-T2, 35 f/1.4 and 16 f/1.4 pretty much everywhere I go, and the insert lets me do it all with a locally made bag that I love. Of course, you'll probably want something a little bit more serious if you're going backpacking, but the concept is the same.

I’m looking for a 20-30L camera backpack!

I currently have the Lowepro Photosport 200 AW , but it doesn’t hold all my gear + adventure gear anymore. I need something bigger.

My gear includes Canon 7D2, 3x lenses (one 70-200 tele), Mavic Air + controller, assorted adventure gear/ layers. I’d tend to want more space than less if given a choice.

I’ve looked into Lowepro’s ProTactic 350 AW and 450 AW . I really like it’s rugged and tactical design. The 450 seems a little too big since I like being able to keep my backpack between my legs on buses/ cars/ planes. Will the 350 accommodate a similar size? Should I go with a bit of extra room in the 450?

I’ve also looked into F-Stop’s 32L Lotus , and Kashmir 30L . Having already purchased the Medium ICU makes these an easier purchase. My concern is that they might be too big to travel with easily. What are people’s thoughts on the company and design of these two?

What other factors should I consider in a bag? What other bags or companies should I look at?

Anything helps! I’m trying to purchase NOW during these cyber Monday sales so anything helps!!

I have the pro tactic 450 ii but this is the first version that will work just as well for 100 less. I’ve used it for travel to carry a 15” laptop and charger and 2 camera bodies with 3 lenses, edelkrone slider and batteries with a little extra room near the top. The bag is also slightly rigid so everything inside is semi-protected and it has three separate openings to the main compartment from the left, right and top of the backpack for quick and easy access.

If you only need to carry one lens and one camera you can save even more money and get the lowepro 350.

I bought a Mavic 2 Pro about 2 months ago and most recently took it to Scotland in this I took it as carry on along with my camera, it’s very comfortable and keeps everything secure.

I bought the Fly More Kit which I recommend since you get two more batteries and the car charging cord for the batteries. In Scotland I would fly the drone and then drive while recharging the battery. I never swapped between more than two batteries at a time. I purchased two additional batteries with gift cards for a total of five batteries.

As thin as that cord is, would probably be strong enough to hold a person if it was clamped at the end properly. At least, I've never seen an image with the cord itself failing, always the plastic housing letting it go.

I use an amazon DSLR bag and have gotten pretty pleased with the setup:

Currently I have 2 EDH decks, 2 Standard decks, and my limited box in there, and there's room for 3 more standard sized boxes stacked on top of what you see in picture 2. Side pockets have dice on one side and another deckbox with tokens on the other, front flap holds pens, scoring pads, DCI card, and usually extra sleeves or whatever.

The limited box has 9 of each land sleeved up (I'm terrible at deckbuilding and can't afford to waste time sleeving lands) and 40 or so sleeves for the deck and a few sideboard cards.

The playmat tube attaches to the front (straps meant for a tripod), which is adequate at best. I wish it could strap down to the top instead, but it works well enough.

Does anybody have any recommendations for a decently priced camera messenger bag? I'm going to go hiking soon and I was thinking about getting something like the Peak Design Camera Clip, but they're pretty expensive for what you're getting so I might as well just go with a regular bag.

I don't really care about looks, just that it's somewhat durable and easy to access your gear. I don't need a gigantic bag since I have a Sony A6000 with the 18-105 lens and will buy the Sigma 30mm and 55-210 down the line.

u/wakasm · 1 pointr/boardgames

I've been doing this myself in a few ways. I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for but for me it was mostly about maximizing shelf space.

For party games, I put about 12-15 party games into one of these. basically all kinds of games that take up way too much space that mostly have just cards and chits. Games like Apples to Apples, Taboo, Wits and Wagers, and of our "trivia" type games, CaH, or anything that I had that really was full-on "party" game.

I also take big box games and put them in much smaller boxes. i have found these work really well:

For instance, games like Bang the Dice game, Codenames, lanterns, Timelines (+ all expansions), even Splendor fit inside one or two of these. Then I just print the labels and store them separately.

For a lot of everything else, I just use foamcore or storage boxes for games with lots of expansions. I was able to fit Eclipse + all expansions into the main box using foamcore. Fitting Zombiecide and all seasons into one carry tacklebox or Descent Second Edition + all expansions into 1 fishing tacklebox feels great after it's all organized, with plano stuff.

How much equipment are we talking, and what kind of use would you need? Is it going to on a hiking trip, or just walking around? I have one of these, it's a nice bag for walk around and limited equipment. I have this for hikes, and it does me well. This is something I'm looking at for both flying and general travel. Though I think in long term I may end up with several.

Everything listed above fits in the main pouch, except the paper, pencil, pen and sleeves - I store these in the front.

Snacks go in the side pouches :D

u/BattleBraut · 1 pointr/boostedboards

Any camera or key chain lanyard will do so long as it's thin enough to thread through the loop.

I broke mine early on and ordered these. Actually turn out to be much better because they have a nifty quick release snap that makes it much easier to quickly detach the controller from your wrist when necessary:

Is there a reason you're looking for that bag specifically?

A lot of people just use camera/padded equipment bag for their portable rig such as this

Also if Newegg offers shipping to Canada, a refurbished AOC USB-C monitor can be bought for fairly cheap.

Hello all. I recently got back from a vacation where I took a ton of pictures. I usually swapped between my [normal camera bag] ( and a simple sling.

But I found myself wishing I had something a bit more in the middle. A small case for just my camera without all my gear, but still protecting it so I don't have to worry as much about it banging around a little bit.

I've been looking at this case from Timbuk2, does anyone have any thoughts on this one, or suggestions of another like it?

For a size comparison, I shoot with a D750. Most of the time I'm walking around with it I'll be using my 50mm, but my only other lens currently is a 24-85mm.

u/agentrandom · 1 pointr/Android

The Hasselblad Moto Mod got poor reviews. At least those that I read. The reality is that a DSLR or mirrorless camera can capture far superior photos due to a much larger sensor. To add that to a phone (addon or otherwise) means not only a lot of extra bulk and cost, but a bulky lens. You may as well be carrying a dedicated camera at that point.

It's not as bad as you may think. I travel a lot and all my camera gear fits into this small bag that doesn't take up much room in my hand luggage on flights. The total cost for a 35mm lens and budget DSLR for me was £300, though I also carry a 55-300mm telephoto lens for wildlife shots. The body, lenses, spare batteries and a GPS addon (budget DSLRs don't tend to have that) all fit into that bag. It may look bulky, but easily fits into even Wizz Air's small hand luggage allowance and leaves plenty of room. When walking around, it's just a small bag on my shoulder. Without the second lens, I could use a smaller bag still.

My Pixel has more smarts than my Nikon, but the DSLR can capture far superior images.

Yeah i saw the wallye bag and that was the main reason i made this post because its a lot of money for just a bag.
In other posts i found a cheaper one Like this but i was curious if people maybe had some alternatives.


But thanks for the advise!

u/wolfcry0 · 1 pointr/PanasonicG7

I've been extremely impressed with this bag:

Fits my GX85 with a lens on it, 2 extra lenses, full size flash and wireless links, misc filters and cables, and an extra wrist strap, with room left over.

The smaller size might be good if you just want to carry the camera and a lens.

u/Barking_at_the_Moon · 1 pointr/Beginning_Photography

I'm in your league as a big guy but have more gear to store/lug. Most of my shooting is sports/action or nature/macro stuff with the occasional family portrait at holidays. I'm definitely an amateur. For most of my shooting, I rely on four basic styles of totes:

  • I use a wrist strap. I don't own this particular one but something very similar. I don't much like neck straps - they're too loose when I'm moving to keep the camera secure and in the way when I'm not moving. When I first bought one of these, I was surprised at how often I used the plate/stand that attaches to the bottom of the camera.
  • For a single camera with an everyday lens: DSLR holster I don't own this particular one but something very similar.
  • For a little more gear but still small: DSLR gadget bag I own and use this bag.
  • For a day spent shooting: DSLR backpack I own and use this bag.

    I've got a couple of cross body sling packs that I've never liked - they always seem to be in the way or bouncing around - so they've ended up stuffed in a corner somewhere or holding the small bits of loose camera crap that seems to accumulate like dust bunnies.

    When/if you get to the point that you're hauling lights &c around, I've found that most of the time a simple (and long/huge) duffel bag is the easiest solution.

>The gimble, it appears to be VERY fragile, should I be concerned when making tight banking moves, and should I always keep the gimble lock on when transporting the drone?

-Yes, always lock it in while transporting. I feel like all it would take is one good drop or catching it on something while storing it and it could rip a cable or part off.

>I saw someone had a DJI app that showed them their flight time, like a data logger thing, it showed them their 'level' etc., (assuming its based on their stats), I can't seem to see this info anywhere within my app though?

Unanswered question from the previous megathread

Author /u/flyhigh141 - (Permalink)

I’m looking for a 20-30L camera backpack!

I currently have the Lowepro Photosport 200 AW , but it doesn’t hold all my gear + adventure gear anymore. I need something bigger.

My gear includes Canon 7D2, 3x lenses (one 70-200 tele), Mavic Air + controller, assorted adventure gear/ layers. I’d tend to want more space than less if given a choice.

I’ve looked into Lowepro’s ProTactic 350 AW and 450 AW . I really like it’s rugged and tactical design. The 450 seems a little too big since I like being able to keep my backpack between my legs on buses/ cars/ planes. Will the 350 accommodate a similar size? Should I go with a bit of extra room in the 450?

I’ve also looked into F-Stop’s 32L Lotus , and Kashmir 30L . Having already purchased the Medium ICU makes these an easier purchase. My concern is that they might be too big to travel with easily. What are people’s thoughts on the company and design of these two?

What other factors should I consider in a bag? What other bags or companies should I look at?

Anything helps! I’m trying to purchase NOW during these cyber Monday sales so anything helps!!

u/methinks2015 · 1 pointr/photography

I have D3300. I got an Amazon Basics camera bag, am pretty happy with it so far. And at $22 it's a pretty decent deal.

I usually put in the body with a lens on it, plus two other lenses, a flash, and a bunch of minor wires/accessories/filters/triggers etc.

u/PooTommy · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

My current bag (which I absolutely love) is the AmazonBasics DSLR Bag. I've had it for over a year now and it's still in great condition, even after taking it for many hikes and beach trips. My only problem with it now is that I am running out of space as it is a kind of small bag.

Pros: Cheap, good camera and lens storage, has a tripod holder on the side, it's well organised

Cons: Small size, doesn't look that great.. Honestly, these are the only two cons I can think of, and they are both subjective.


If you think this could be a problem for you, there's also the bigger AmazonBasics DSLR and Laptop Bag. I haven't tried this bag, but I assume it is very similar to the smaller one (besides size, obviously).

I've also heard many good things about Lowepro 450AW.


I recently backed the Boundary Errant on Kickstarter. It's due to arrive around November, but I purchased this bag as an "all-rounder" bag so I could start carrying my camera everywhere with me, such as Uni, as it has an optional camera insert. It's a little pricier but I believe it will be a bag that can last for ages.


u/CaliforniaBurrito · 1 pointr/photography

I use a couple of bags -

  • Lowepro ProTactic 450AW - Large, fits a 15" MBP, a couple of bodies, lenses and room for flash and other goodies. You could reorganize this space to accomodate for books and school supplies. I've loaded it up with three bodies, six lenses, and a MBA and it's still super comfortable to wear.

  • Tenba DNA 13 - Great messenger style bag. This is my daily carryall bag for work. I can fit my MBA 13", two bodies and two lenses easily. Looking back I wish I would have went with the 15" model for when I upgrade to a 15" MBP.

  • The Everyday Messenger - Have not received this yet from the Kickstarter campaign but it's due to come in before Christmas. Bought this messenger to replace my DNA 13.

    Lowepro makes a smaller version of the one I listed, you should locate one locally and see if it fits your needs - I really like it.

Requesting camera bag feedback/thoughts/suggestions/etc!

Equipment currently owned:

-Canon 7D Mk. II

-Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8

-Canon 70-200mm f/2.8

-Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

I have been looking at the Lowepro Protactic 350 AW, 450 AW, and Fastpack 250 AWII, as I plan to use my equipment while traveling and walking around. Having a laptop compartment, and other smaller compartments, is also preferable for traveling.

As a note, in the long-term future, I do see myself picking up a full-frame body to buddy up with my crop sensor.

u/crazycoala · 1 pointr/photography

I have the Canon Deluxe Photo Backpack.

For ~$35 its a great bag. I took it to China when shooting a documentary and fit the following into it a Canon 60D, a 50mm 1.4 and a 28-135, a Rode Videomic, a gorilla pod, a handheld rig, a Zoom H2, headphones, many wires, extra batteries, etc. Its a strong bag, and it has two loops on the bottom to carry a light tripod, though if it is too big it is pretty hard to carry in that fashion.

It's a nice bag, I wouldn't recommend wearing it for a hike longer than 4 hours but if you're just using it to carry gear from place to place I'd really recommend it.

u/sfa1500 · 1 pointr/photography

Any suggestions are welcome?

Canon Deluxe Photo Backpack 200EG
Price: $40
Looks like normal backpack
Padded walls
Some Adjustable Velcro walls
3 SD card pockets
Several general purpose pockets and pouches
Bungie cord pouch on the outside, great for stowing light jacket, water bottles.
Tripod straps on the bottom to stow tripod underneath
Chest strap on the front to keep it securely on you

Canon branding on it (thief magnet) easy to remove as I did.
No official laptop pouch but I crammed one in it once.
Not much room for magazines, etc, if you're taking this on a plane.
Too small if you have a lot of gear or long lenses. Says "two camera" in description but I'd only use it with one.

Holds all my common gear so I can pick it up and just go. In the main space it holds my Camera plus kit-size lens in the top, and I can fit a 70-200 zoom under that in center Chanel pocket. Side padded walls on right are left standard for my three lenses, on the left side I removed one wall to fit my flash, and that still leaves a place for my GoPro or flash diffuser. In the smaller pockets there are pouches to keep things organized. I have a tiny travel tripod in one, a RF remote shutter trigger in another, and a USB SD card reader, all right where I expect them. It seems to be fairly weather resistant from my use. I'm not worried when it starts raining.

Things to improve: could use higher quality padding in gear compartment, but it's amazing for what you pay for. Could have an easy access type zipper for the camera or for a second camera, but that's what pro bags are for. Could be a bit larger to accommodate laptop or more gear, but for a simple bag that holds more than enough camera gear for most situations, it's a great value.

u/not_charles_grodin · 1 pointr/perfectgift

This camera bag is my quick, go-to bag when I'm in a hurry and need the essentials in a small, durable container. It holds just enough to get the job done and is the perfect size to lug into most situations without drawing too much attention to yourself. Also, there is a perfect spot to get it monogrammed right under the logo, which you should consider because these are very common in certain circles. Plus, even with monogramming, your cost is less than $50.

Honestly I'd buy a [Pelican case.] ( and a lock and break it out for my personal use only.

(The cases have tearable foam, so you can put what ever in there. There are also other sizes at various prices if you need something smaller or larger.)

u/scstraus · 1 pointr/Vive

Get one of those soft microfiber cases for ski goggles or helmets..

Or maybe for camera lenses is a more appropriate size

If you wanted a little more protection than that, you could toss the Vive in it's microfiber bag into a camera bag.

Or if you really want to go pro, get a Pelican Case.

I can't speak for op, but amazon has been having some pretty good deals on them lately. I think op probably has a 1200(I do to in orange for a travel minitube), which is around $38 right now. They're great carrying cases though, they do a great job of protecting whatever is inside them.

u/Craysh · 1 pointr/Frugal

My buddy goes on float trips a lot.

The only problem that he has is that his group doesn't have music and the waterproof boomboxes cost an arm and a leg (and very few have any kind of MP3 support)

I purchased a Pelican 1300, and I drilled out two holes on the top (~ 1" space on each side). I then threw in two waterproof speakers making sure that it was sealed tightly (required some calk).

I stripped the RCA side of a 3.5mm jack to RCA cable and soldered the ends to the speakers.

u/HenryWillo · 1 pointr/VitaTV

That's a cool case. It probably won't work for me, since it won't fit a Dualshock.

I've come up with this Pelican case so far. The Pelican case may not work because the Dualshock 4 is just a bit taller put in vertically. It may fit. I must have mis-measured I'm going to do more measurements when I get my PSTV. and see if it will fit horizontally.

Edit: Actually just don't listen to me about the measurements, turns out I'm looking at the dimensions of the entire case. I'll have a link post to show what I end up doing. Most likely some sort of Pelican case.

Buy a pelican case. Just put up the damn $50 for a case large enough for your gun and a couple other items, and then get high quality lock (NOT MASTER LOCK) like an Abus Titalium (virtually unpickable).

It makes flying with a gun so much better. You only need the one lock on the smaller Pelicans.

Factory gun cases are garbage, a Pelican with a dessicant packet in it will keep your gun totally sealed from the elements.

You're in those two for under $50 total.

u/_olopops_ · 1 pointr/camping

Canoe trip and you are considering taking your DSLR and you think a Pelican case is overkill?

First off, I would get a used EOS-M (or M2) and the EF-M 18-55 & EF-M 22mm f/2.0 lenses. Light APS-C mirrorless. Great camera.

You could then get a smaller pelican case. For a couple pounds weight you could have a camera, extra lens, small tripod, batteries, and a case.

Here's a EOS-M in a Pelican 1200:

u/dimildarko · 1 pointr/vaporents

It is a Pelican 1200 with "Pick N Pluck" foam so it doesn't require a special device to cut the slots. You can find them cheaper if you're OK with other colors like the bright blue.

Pelican 1510 Case With Foam (Black)

u/Werm_Hatt · 1 pointr/bourbon

It depends. I have two main ones I use, this one and this one.

The 1510 easily holds 4 or 5 bottles, the 1650 is about double. It's hard for me to say exactly because I'm usually hauling beer as well. I've never had a bottle break on me but I do put each individual bottle in a sealed gallon ziplock. The pull a part foam that comes with the case works ok to pack them with, but I usually end up adding some bubble wrap.

One other thing if you go the pelican route - don't just buy it straight from Amazon. They go on sale a fair amount, check Camel Camel Camel and setup an alert. I got my 1510 for $80 and the 1650 for about 30% off if I remember correctly.

I've never used the Monoprice ones, but Pelican cases are widely regarded as the gold standard. I have three and the damn things are indestructible, and I would buy any of their products sight unseen based on their name and reputation alone.

That being said, Monoprice almost always provides a very good product for a very competitive price, so if you're looking to save a few bucks, they would be an excellent alternative. Looking at the photos on their site, they look quite comparable to Pelican offerings, and many are IP67 rated.

Compare -- Pelican 1510 ($160) vs. Monoprice Hard Case 12182 ($75.99). Looks nearly identical to me. Bit of a size difference, and minus the metal reinforced padlock holes, but you also save $84. Note that you have to pay shipping with Monoprice, though, and that can be spendy, so in the end the final price difference between the two will be less.

Pelican case I use this one with this pluck foam. Now granted it won't work for some taller tanks unless you take the drip tip off. I've taken it camping to set on top of the ice in the cooler to keep things cool. I've. I ended up getting a shallower one to keep my coils in that I purchase premade. This case is tall enough to hold 18650s upright. I believe it's 4 squares of the pluck foam is the size to hold the battery stable if you don't have a separate case for batteries.

Yeah it's hard sided case but I really really love it for carrying my supplies for a weekend out.

u/namey_o_name · 1 pointr/Goruck

I believe this is the one I have, except mine is blue. The link says this one is crush proof too. I know mine has definitely been treated roughly.

It definitely adds a little bulk, but I find it big enough to store things you definitely don't want to get wet (i.e. phone, batteries, electrolyte tablets, advil, etc.)

u/mithikx · 1 pointr/Android

This may not be the best solution, but you can get one of those small waterproof Pelican or Otterbox type cases. Obviously you can't use it while it's in the case but it'd survive dropping in the pool or from a standing height like when on a bike.

Alternatively you can get a water proof pouch such as this or this, you can get this and the pelican for added safety, or try and squeeze a traditional phone case in to the pouch.

I've sourced a couple of toolboxes (DeWalt typically) that I've modded (by grinding out the dividers) to carry some of my strobe lights.

This looks promising: Zeikos Hard Side

u/Gotenks0906 · 1 pointr/buildapc

How does this black one look, or maybe this solid aluminum one.

u/40minutesto5 · 1 pointr/StonerEngineering

This kind of goes against the 'engineering' aspect of this sub, but I bought a case like this a couple years ago for my tube. It's fairly small, it's probably 4" wide across the base and less than 16 inches tall, but this case (or one similar) is absolutely perfect for carrying and protecting glass. It has foam padding on the inside that is a bunch of connected square foam pads, so it's very easy to cut a design that will snugly fit your piece. I also was able to cut out separate slots for my bowls, downstem, grinder, and pill containers.

Maybe you have a box or something that would fit your glass, and all you'd need is to find some foam to fill the inside.

When I started to get overrun (get it) with decks, I started putting them in the 2 sided card boxes. When that wasnt enough, I upgraded and went all Kaiba and got me one of these (Metal Briefcase). That started to eventually break due to the amount of stuff I carried with me so I got upgraded to the best one I've got so far (Metal Lock Box). This thing is wonderful and holds not only all my 20+ decks but also my trade binders. Just dont try to drag it up stairs.

u/mauigreen · 1 pointr/boardgames

really affordable would be to just use plano cases. you could even get some craft foam and line the storage bins in the plano cases! for a little more money, these type of metal storage cases with pluckable foam are neat and not bad on price:

u/AlexKnolly · 1 pointr/Gunpla

Ever tried something like this? It comes with diced foam inserts so you can rip them out and essentially make a "custom" foam case lining.

u/Brostafarian · 1 pointr/hookah

grabbed it off Amazon, here. The diced foam is really nice and lets you do just about anything you want as far as organization goes

u/Ringtailed79 · 1 pointr/magicTCG

I'm looking for a better way to transport 15ish decks at a time to and from events.

I'm currently using a standard backpack and tossing the plastic deckboxes in it, but it's ruining the deckboxes and it can be frustrating trying to find one particular deck.

After a couple of brief amazon searches, this looks promising

How are other people carting large amounts of decks around?

u/Vestrati · 1 pointr/Warmachine

I just bought one of these to try out:

I saw someone recommend them for minis... and it's pretty damn cheap. Haven't opened it up yet though, will see how it goes.

u/DerNalia · 1 pointr/Multicopter

This is the exact one I ordered

u/Jermenizzle · 1 pointr/airsoft

I sometimes keep valuable things in a Pelican 1060. I try to keep it out of plain sight when I'm on the field.

u/alaskaj1 · 1 pointr/CampingGear

It sounds like what you want is a pouch like this. I have a similar one for my phone but it's more for splash protection and just in case I drop it in the water, I couldn't say how effective these type pouches would be actually submerged.

I have a small pelican 1060 case that I usually store my phone and keys in. Again, i haven't dunked it but i would trust it a little more than the phone pouches for keeping things dry (I would trust something like the pelican 1120 even more) But it's not as handy and easy to carry as the pouch.

u/Katapesh_Express · 1 pointr/lifehacks

You have a $600 smartphone but can't be bothered with a $19 Pelican case for it?!?

u/smokeNtoke1 · 1 pointr/trees

I keep my stuff in a pelican case, it's been smell proof for me the last 5 years, and easy to clean. I flip the top open and use the lid area to roll j's over.

u/smithincanton · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

Neat! I build a time laps rig with a Pelican dry case and a Pi 3 mounted on acrylic that fits in the case. Zip tied the case to a board and stuck the board in a window. Worked out really nice.

u/samuraiphillips · 1 pointr/photography

I've had this bag for the last two years and I love it.

u/cyncicle · 1 pointr/Cameras

I picked up a backpack bag at Costco a couple years ago. Other than outgrowing this particular small one, I like the backpack style for carrying my gear.

There's an inexpensive one on Amazon that has good reviews, and might fit your needs as a beginner.

u/ShirtOptional · 1 pointr/photography

Depending on your budget, you have some options. this is a pretty good bag, can store your dslr, lenses, and has extra pockets for books. Or you can go for something like this, a bit more expensive but really quality stuff.

u/iHeartMalware · 1 pointr/Multicopter

I'm using this:

I swapped around the space inside for my radio, FPV, batteries, and repair kit. My hex clips on the side, and all good to go in one bag! No hands needed!

u/hallflukai · 1 pointr/photography

What are you traveling for and what kind of pictures are you trying to get? If you just want pictures for the memories and don't care as much about a shallow depth-of-field or absolute sharpness I'd go with the two zooms. If you're looking to get artsier I'd leave the 18-135 at home and replace it with the 24 and the 50.

Either way the 24 is small enough that there's not really an excuse not to bring it, plus it's an amazing walkaround lens.

Bring the tripod, always.

Honestly all things considered, I think you should get a DSLR backpack and you could just bring all the gear. I have the AmazonBasics one and can fit my full kit in it and it has straps on the side for a tripod.

u/vodkamojito · 1 pointr/gopro

I got on of those... So far I love it. I haven't taken it out too much but its nice having everything in its place while not having to carry around an obnoxious hard case... The backpack is pretty compact...

u/dswnysports · 1 pointr/GoodValue

Depends on how big/what use you want from it. I use this one from amazon. I used this when i am traveling because it can also fit my tablet as well. I am still looking for a smaller more portable bag. Lowepro and Case Logic also makes some fantastic bags.

u/theraineydaze · 1 pointr/Vive

I've been using a camera bag I bought off Amazon for a while now and it's absolutely perfect. I was worried the DAS wouldn't fit but if you turn the headset 90 degrees it works great.

u/kolosok17 · 1 pointr/photography

Hi guys, I am not sure whether this is a good place to post this, so please feel free to delete if it violates the rules.

I am looking to upgrade from a Canon T3 to a smaller, potentially mirrorless, camera. I would like to sell my T3 + gear and use that cash toward the new camera.

What is a reasonable price to ask for this stuff:

Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera DS126291

Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS II

Tiffen 58mm UV Protection Filter

Case Logic SLRC-201 SLR Zoom Holster (Black)

AmazonBasics Backpack for SLR/DSLR Cameras and Accessories - Black

Generic 58mm Hood

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens - Fixed

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II Telephoto Zoom Lens


u/SOC2TIM2_3-4 · 1 pointr/EDH
u/RyanJS08 · 1 pointr/SonyAlpha

Amazon Basics has a bag. Doesn't get more budget friendly than $30.

u/browniebiznatch · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Something like this?

u/SuperNikoPower · 1 pointr/vive_vr

There are a few on Amazon but they get really expensive. What I would recommend is getting a hard case with customizable/pluckable foam so you can make it fit your gear snugly. I use that for travel.

For general home storage, I got a 40 dollar DSLR camera backpack that has a thick foam layer and removeable padding. Keep in mind this isn’t for travel or flinging around. Just to keep it dust free.

u/PhillipMB · 1 pointr/photography

Could you link to that Amazon basics bag? I'm also kinda hating my first bag and could use a reasonably priced replacement. I found this one and a lot of the reviews say the stitching on the handle rips easily. It looks like a decent enough sized bag for my needs though, and its cheap as hell. Seems like a good buy.

u/jeremyscurto · 1 pointr/analog

Worth it in my book haha
It's just a plain old amazon bag, have to be creative with my packing, but it somehow holds it all.

u/shashinka · 1 pointr/Vive

I'm a photographer and I find that a decent large camera bag would fit the bill quite well for a Vive. Most usually have customizable compartments rearrangeable with velcro and lots of padding. Amazon basics does a good one. Like this (or one of the larger ones)

u/SilverKnight1337 · 1 pointr/photography

So I have the Amazon Basics DSLR Backpack currently. I love it because it holds everything I currently have.

My issue is that I really want a bag that is a bit smaller. I want something that can hold me Canon T3 with attached nifty fifty and old 35mm lenses and well as a flash. Budget is roughly <$75. I also like the vintage look for whats its worth.

I have been looking at the following cases but most of them seem to small for what I want to use them for.

u/awesometographer · 1 pointr/photography

Got a 7 million dollar home bag - it's nice. Prefer my $20 AmazonDigital Basic for overall use, tho.

u/theycantallbetaken · 1 pointr/Vive

I've got mine in an Amazon basics slr rucksack, complete with DAS fitted. Bit tight but well padded and can be carried on my back while I'm carrying PC

u/bdfh · 1 pointr/photography

I put all my gear on a shelf and I installed a strip of LEDs to light it up, so I can see everything better. The accessories like filter cases and table-top tripods are in a box and rarely get used.

I have the AmazonBasics DSLR Backpack and it is amazingly good for the price. It doesn't offer as much protection as other backpacks, due to the softer padding, but it sure keeps your gear safe. I've been using one for years and I'm satisfied with it (although it's pretty ugly).

u/Learnincurve · 1 pointr/photography

If it's a rucksack you want, then I cannot recommend the amazon basics backpack highly enough, it's £21.49 and astonishing value for money. My lowepro backpack broke and I got it as a stopgap and I'm amazed at how good it is for the money. It's big, has lots of pockets, massive amount of room for kit or you can pull the dividers out and have room for your lunch and a waterproof coat (alongside a D600+kit lens). The best part about it though is how comfortable it is to use the straps are very padded and it has those ones that come round the front as well. It also has these straps on the side for a tripod. Only drawback is that it's not waterproof but you can fix that by getting one of those £5 covers that fit over it which will also stop thieves in town.

u/forouza1 · 1 pointr/photography

Amazon Basics is a line of products produced by themselves. They do several items but the camera bag is a great item/value. here

u/phototrist · 1 pointr/photography

Not sure for laptop, but I've been able to get quite some milage from an amazon bag link What I like most about it is it's good for hiking, but the zippers, by god the zippers are smooth and great to opperate. Only disadvantage is that it's a backpack

u/HomerSimpsonJr · 1 pointr/photography

I have this that I like

I have a pretty broad chest, so the front straps came up pretty high on me and the backpack overall seems to sit higher up on your back (even with the back straps at their loosest) than any other backpack I own, but other than that, I like it.

u/Kelso_G17 · 1 pointr/gopro

I picked up one of these a few months ago. It's compact, but has room in it for a lot of gear. When I'm shooting, I'll usually hang it from the weight hook of my tripod. I keep the cameras in smaller hard shell cases when packed away.

u/Octoplow · 1 pointr/Vive

Amazon reconfigurable camera bag for $40 is amazing. This large one fits everything, with extra space for 3 trackers and mounts (that extra space used to hold a GearVR - easier to picture.)

And I mean everything (other than tripods): giant power strip, HMD and lighthouse extensions, wipes, etc. It even comes with a rain cover for the bag if you get caught outside.

Edit: also have friends using the small one. It neatly fits all Vive stuff, but no space to spare.

u/lksdford · 1 pointr/photography

I just bought this for the D7000 I hope to buy this week.

u/SoCalDan · 1 pointr/photography

I know OP found his but for anyone else looking for a backpack, I like this one.

Carries everything but the laptop

u/asosaki · 1 pointr/photography

It's definitely possible, ESPECIALLY if you're willing to buy refurbished.

Canon 60D

Canon 70-300mm IS USM

meFOTO tripod

SanDisk 16GB memory card

Camera bag

2 extra batteries and an extra wall charger/car charger

Lens Pen (to clean your lenses)

Rocket blower (to clean your camera)

Done. All under $1500 (when I did the math it came out to ~$1400 for all of this). And you can even buy a cheaper bag or use one you already own if you so choose. Or a different brand of tripod. I just chose that one because it can fold up compact and it's pretty light so it's easy to travel with.

Lowepro Slingshot 202 DSLR Sling Camera Bag

This is the model that I have. Let me know if you're interested.

u/imperialka · 1 pointr/AskPhotography

Your link shows the tripod as unavailable. I found it on amazon which seems to be the same one for $150.

How does the ball head work? I've never used a tripod before and want to ensure I can easily turn the camera in all angles/degrees possible.

Also, will this fit on the side of my lowepro sling bag?

u/YoderinLanc · 1 pointr/photography

I'm not sure why everyone is pointing you towards Pelican, especially for a first bag. Great bags, but they're pretty hardcore.

I bought a Lowepro Slingshot 202 AW for my first bag and its a great bag. Great protection, plenty of room for gear, super quick access to your camera, and it even has the pull out cover for inclement weather. This was my primary bag until a month ago, but I still use it if I don't need to take all my gear.

u/MrMushroomMan · 1 pointr/photography

Possibly a camera bag, or if she likes to collect cameras you could always pick up a fairly decent working film one for ~100-200 or often times less if you look harder. Twin lens reflex cameras are always pretty sexy. I got a yashica-mat for around 100 dollars (if you care to see it). Or maybe a reflector if she does a lot of portrait work

Edit: I have a Lowepro SlingShot 202 AW, I like it but I hear mixed reviews from other people. I'm a big guy and I do a lot of walking around/trudging through foresty areas and I've never had a problem with comfort, size, or moving around like others have.

oooooh! I like that one! I have this one as my carry-about. When I know I really don't need more than a body and lens, but I also don't want to carry a bare camera all day.

u/rhpot1991 · 1 pointr/photography

I have a Lowepro Slingshot 202 which is great cause it holds all my stuff including a battery grip attached to the camera. Before using the slingshot I used a CaseLogic Sling Bag which is much more compact but unfortunately didn't hold my camera once I got the battery grip. I'd recommend the CaseLogic for hiking as long as it can hold all your stuff.

Pelican 1120 Case with Foam (Camera, Multi-Purpose) - Black

u/T-bootz · 1 pointr/outdoorgear

If you want a camera that can do all of that stuff - get a GoPro. If you don't want a GoPro, I think your best option is to get a camera and a pelican case. I'm referring to something like this.

u/Sagaritu · 1 pointr/vaporents

Me personally though, I bought a Pelican 1120, then cut the foam inserts to fit the solo, the straight stem, a grinder, and a couple of small containers for bud. It's super sturdy and sealed so that no smell leaks when it's closed.

u/pk_random · 1 pointr/chinaglass

u/BrewSenpai · 1 pointr/podcasts

Im not sure the dimensions of the Rodecaster Pro but maybe a case like these Pelican cases? The foam on the inside kind of pulls out so you can fit what you need into it nice and snug. Im sure there are less expensive types of these cases as well, but perhaps this can be a starting point?

u/grasschoocher · 1 pointr/vaporents

I found mine while it was on sale on for around 45$
Edit: Somthing like this

u/LeEagle · 1 pointr/vaporents

When you said the largest micro case were you referring to the Pelican 1120? That is the one I have my eye on now, the 1200 would for sure work but I think the 1120 should be able to fit everything well.


u/Weft_ · 1 pointr/gopro

Thanks /u/lamic

I looked through your post and recommendations, it looks awesome! I know I really should wait for the Hero5 but I'm not sure if I can wait.

I started to put a list of things I want/need into a spreadsheet, to start looking at Price. I have Amazon Prime so I'm thinking about ordering everything through Amazon.

Can you take a quick look through my list and see if everything checks out and if I missed anything for "Basic" operations? Then could you make any more recommendations, or let me know what my next purchases should be?

  • GoPro HERO4 SILVER- $338

  • Memory Card Lexar 64GB- $35, Looks like the cheapest one between Sandisk Extreme and Lexar, Lexar currently is the cheapest on Amazon

  • Batteries - Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack)- $22, Read a few reviews and people said they like these batteries a lot. Should give me enough juice and let me know how long I can record with, until I'm completely dead.

  • Protection Lens - $7 I really just need to lens protector, in the reviews people are saying some parts don’t fit the Hero4 only the Hero3. Or should I put the $20 version off the actual GoPro site?

  • GoPro The Tool$4, Like you requested and reading some comments it looks like it would be worth it.

  • A basic Card Reader - $7, did a quick google search on best card readers this one popped up for best for it’s price.

  • SANDMARC® Pole - $40, Looked up some reviews and people tend to like this one. It seems like is always recommended to have some kind of stick or holdable mount to start off with. Also could you go into a little more detail about mounting the GoPro?

  • Pelican Case -$25 I like the idea of it being waterproof and I like to be organized with my stuff. So this looks like a perfect fit. And it will be an awesome case to travel with.

  • Kingston 5-in-1 Mobile Companion - $35 I was watching some videos and it seems like this could be a cool little gadget to have. I would mostly use it for “mobile uploads to Hard Drives”. Working in IT I know how important it is to have backups, and this will let me get around bringing a laptop to the resort and other stuff. This is the video I’m referring too that shows you how to upload to a HD with out a computer.

    So with everything in my cart I’m sitting at $488 which is with in my budget.

    I’m still reading about the remote. That might be something we add down the line. I think I’ll be pretty content with just my phone app or getting the “waterproof touch screen” case cover too.

    Do you think this is a good setup? Will this get me going? Do you have any recommendations, or anything that I should add or not buy yet?
u/Stoppablemurph · 1 pointr/SteamController

Thanks for the heads up.
For those of us who would prefer a simpler Amazon link.
(They have several nice colors of these cases. Just search "Pelican 1120". They're definitely nice looking.)

Edit: Not sure how great they'd be for fitting in a backpack with a laptop though.. Would be curious to see pics of one in the wild.

u/alaxer · 1 pointr/ploompax

On Amazon, the Pelican 1120 is currently $24.48. The interior dimensions are 7.46" x 4.96" x 3.33". The foam comes included and is perforated for easy customization. Other accessories not included.

u/Raptor01 · 1 pointr/djimavic

I have a hard case for my Mavic but I wanted something easier to carry around. Got this bag: and it fits the Mavic plus accessories (three batteries, home and car charger, spare props) very nicely. I used the foam that came with the extra batteries to make them fit a bit more snugly.

u/IrishGh0st91 · 1 pointr/canon

50mm is in! Is the 10-18 worth it over the 24? More expensive and wider - I guess I've just never shot that wide so I don't know if I'd like it or not.

I bought a sling bag which I plan on traveling with, fairly light and room for camera and a few lenses.

u/uponone · 1 pointr/photography

I found this camera bag sling.

u/MegaThrustEarthquake · 1 pointr/photography

I've always found that to be pretty heavy, even with a canon rebel and pancake lens. I've purchased this ergonomic sling. And it has treated me very well.

u/XenonFlare · 1 pointr/Cameras

I would go with a shoulder strap rather than a neck strap.

This one is plenty durable and very very comfortable compared to a neck strap.

u/KaJashey · 1 pointr/photography

I got this and like it.

Scared to spend that little on something so important but it seems to be a secure knockoff of a black rapid sport. Got the little camera tether they suggest with it for a little more piece of mind.

u/Wannabestoicguy · 1 pointr/Leica

For Kayaking I'd use a cheap and reliable roll top dry bag and put a camera insert inside with some silica gel packs to absorb any moisture.

How much camera gear do you want to carry vs. how much other gear?

When I want to carry 2 pro bodies and several lenses (24-70, 70-200 f/2.8, 150-600), I have a padded insert from a cheaper camera bag that I slide into my Black Diamond pack (since the BDel has a much better suspension than the cheap bag). It looks something like this but mine doesn't have the front cover so when it slips in my pack there's no padding. I can use a neoprene laptop sleeve tucked in or just a fleece stuffed in there if I need it. This takes up most of the bag, so there's not much room for other things, so it's mostly a day hike option.

If I'm only carrying the pro body and the 70-200 f/2.8, I've got a Mountainsmith Zoom Bag. I've got the "Large" which fits the pro body and 70-200 with hood reversed... but it looks like it's no longer made. This is a really bulky option, but protects the camera well. It also has straps so it can be strapped to the outside of the pack or on your chest... but I've never really used it that way.

If you don't have much camera gear, you can pick up a simple padded insert like the Ape Case. They have different sizes and a you can get more expensive ones as well as cheaper versions. The only thing I don't like about these smaller cases is that being heavy, they tend to sink to the bottom of the pack making it more difficult to get your camera out. Some packs have hooks near the top of the pack to hold up a hydration bladder, that sometimes works for smaller cameras.

Of course you can just wrap the camera up in a fleece and drop it in the pack. I do this often enough.

u/joshjoshjosh42 · 1 pointr/dji

I currently use this.

Camera insert that sits inside a bag. Fits the Mavic, controller and two batteries. Compartments are reconfigurable too. It won't fit the charger, but you can definitely squeeze in more small stuff like spare props, cards, etc.

u/jjacq · 1 pointr/backpacks

yeah I've traveled with mine several times, I mean if you're super worried you can add a wrap or inserts.

u/icey9 · 1 pointr/M43 I just use this and put it at the top of my backpack.

u/ParkRap · 0 pointsr/vaporents

Maybe just get a generic Pelican case, and a foam insert and cut it yourself? I'm pretty sure the one above would be too small, but larger pelicans are easy enough to find.

u/crushcastles23 · -1 pointsr/magicTCG
