Gadget Bag: That’s A Wrap
When you want to shoot without the full bag on your back, you can keep a few lenses and accessories protected with a small pouch or wrap
RoadWired has taken the concept of protective fabric lens wraps to a higher level with its Skooba Design RoadWired R.A.P.S. Available in three sizes and four attractive colors (yellow, red, black and gray), these thick, multilayered wraps employ a patented Corrosion Intercept lining that provides a moisture barrier and protects against external elements. Priced from $13 to $18, they use hook-and-loop fasteners at all four corners so they can be folded and rolled into any configuration.
Available in 10-, 16- and 22-inch squares, Tenba Messenger Wraps provide pliable, portable padding that protects your gear and looks good, too. The four colors make it easy to organize and identify items by color code—a handy feature, whether you’re out on assignment or just hiking the neighborhood. The Messenger Wraps are machine-washable and can withstand years of heavy use.
Don’t forget that Canon, Hasselblad, Nikon, Olympus, Sony and other lens manufacturers offer lens pouches, too. They’re not necessarily better than their aftermarket cousins, but they’re more likely to offer a perfect fit for every lens in your collection.
