Gift Idea: Waterfield Camera Cases

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.

WaterField camera case

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!
