My trusty old suitcase for my 8x10 has finally given up (busted locks)!
I now need a new "box" for my gear and I'd like to have something in which my camera can sit opened & well protected (as opposed to folded in the suitcase) and in which I can store ~ 10 holders, a couple lenses, light meter, voice recorder, notebook etc. All the trappings in one box for easy access (spare film, tools, changing bag can stay in the car). I want something rigid that lays flat on the ground with a handle on top (with the camera and holders remaining upright of course). A case with camera/holders in the bottom compartment and lens, meter etc.in the lid? Bonus points if it looks like dirty laudry is inside as opposed to $10K's worth of camera gear!
NO backpacks for me! This is only to get my gear from the car to my shooting spot and from the car back into the house for storage. See what I'm after?

Suggestions?

Cheers

When I moved o Mèxico I got me a Pelican case, very sturdy, it survived the gorillas at the airport. YOu are able to put locks on it, and you can carry all that you mention. OTOH it is not "scruffy" looking, but I guess if you drag it behind the car a few miles you can make it look that way...:tongue:

Some musical insturment stores can order custom sizes of Anvil cases - or other brands much like Anvils such as Hybrid. These are the cases you see rock bands using to haul equipment - I've actually seen a bus roll over one with no damage to the contents. Years ago I had one made that's the size of a large briefcase - my 8x10 fits inside perfectly, although folded.
You can have one made to your dimensions, but be prepared- they're expensive although worth it if you need the protection. You may be able to order them on-line now.
