I can’t help it. I love Filson… American Made and what not… This guy took a vintage “original briefcase” and made a camera bag out of it. Brilliant.

This rules. If you have plans to leave the country in a hurry (for any reason at all), it might be a damn good idea to have the Roll Up Travel Charger on hand. Sure, it’s sold by Restoration Hardware.. But come on man! This thing is brilliant!

HoldFast

This guy was sick of the typical nylon and velcro camera bags and straps, so he developed his own line of hand made camera straps and bags. I like the idea, but the final product might be a tad too rustic for my tastes.

You get a link anyway.
