Hard cases provide the ultimate protection for your camera gear, while soft-sided camera bags typically offer greater organizational flexibility and portability. The SKB Flyer Series, created in partnership with Think Tank Photo, is the best of both options, with SKB’s watertight hard case on the outside and a removable, customizable Think Tank photo backpack inside.
Four models are available, including the carry-on qualified 3i-2011-7BP, which has room for two DSLRs, lenses, accessories and a laptop. Travel with your gear safely in the hard case, then remove the backpack and you’re ready to hit the trail. Estimated street price: $329. Contact: SKB, skbcases.com.
