Gift Idea - I don't like to toss loose gear into a bag. And sense I use old briefcases as gear bags to limit the chance of attracting a criminals attention. And since they don't have padding for equipment I put my stuff in individual bags inside the case. WaterField cases are perfect for my needs.
I have been using a WaterField Designs case for the past six months. I got it originally to fit my G11, but It ended up using it for a HD video camera aCanon VIXIA HFM30. It still looks as good as new after a month in Paris, two weeks in Italy, and 4-6 weeks on the road here in the States. WaterField sent me a sample.
Except for this WaterField case, right now inside my briefcase I’m using bubble pack padded envelopes reinforced around the edges with packing tape. They work OK for a few weeks of action but then need replacing.
NOTE: These cases are DESIGNED & MADE IN AMERICA. I like that!
