ILE-The-Ultimate-Photographers-Bag

In most cases, calling anything The Ultimate is a bit on the presumptuous side. We’re willing to let that slide in this particular instance because Inside Line Equipment has truly created what just might be the ultimate photographer’s bag. If you’re not driving to shoots (almost impossible if you live in a bustling metropolis like New York or Chicago) or taking a cab (a pricey option to say the least), you’re riding a bike, walking or taking public transportation. All of these options don’t afford you the luxury of trunk space and put very strenuous demands on your back and hands. With this bag you never have to worry about being able to get extra lenses, tripods or your laptop safely (it’s padded, waterproof and outfitted with ballistic nylon) to your destination. Each bag is handmade in California, and while they’re certainly not cheap, the cost is a drop in the bucket compared with replacing equipment.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
