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.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
