High Above’s New Lookout Hip Pack

I’ve used a lot of hip packs over the past few years and it’s always hard grading them. A lot of it comes down to strap thickness, interior space, pockets and how well they carry weight since mine usually carry a small camera as well. High Above’s newest hip pack, the Lookout is the culmination of everything they’ve learned over the past six years of building bags. It’s loaded with details and features, including a water bottle holster for those mountain bikes with only one cage and is made in Washington. Check out more on the Lookout and the other packs currently available at High Above.

Inside Line Equipment Updates Their Photo Bag Mini

My favorite small camera bag just got better. Inside Line Equipment updated the Photo Bag Mini with a new interior fabric, better foam and a simple, one-piece insert design. The new and improved Photo Bag mini is also available in an array of custom material options, along with some stock fabric choices. This bag will fit mirrorless systems easily, as well as a DSLR with a small telephoto zoom lens like the 5D and a 24-70. I’ve used mine thoroughly for almost five years and love it.

Outershell Makes the Best On-the-bike Camera Bag

I get this question all the time: “How do you carry your camera on your bike?” and the answer varies. It depends on the bike and the camera used, different cameras require various amounts of space and have varying weights. More on that later, but for now, let’s look at the best on-the-bike camera bag for medium-sized cameras I’ve ever used.
