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.
