Great to hear.  

 

As Allen mentioned, I am always pleasantly surprised about  how people will respond with some information about the situation.  


In Topic: Case for gear

02 August 2014 - 09:35 AM

Like DiverDoug1, I have a few different cases depending up what I am carrying and where I am going.

 

Some questions to think about:

 

1.)  Are you traveling to places where it is more difficult to get the gear to?  (Carry-on airplanes, puddle jumpers in there, etc.)

2.)  Do you dive locally often so you can just load up gear in a car?

3.)  Do you carry more or less equipment (or different size equipment) based on where you are going?

 

 

Some of the questions overlap.  But I use a variety of Pelicans, Porter, Bags (ThinkTank and LowePro usually) and other items.  With a 4/3 system and some small strobes or lights the items I grab will be different compared to a full dSLR rig.  Sometimes, especially if going to places I have been to fairly often before and will get to again, it is nice just to use a small portable setup. 

 

That all being said, I often use a Pelican 1510 because it works for carry-on in most places I go to, coupled with a laptop bag.
