There are more bags sitting around this place than we would ever know what to do with. But every time a new DSLR camera bag that’s the next greatest bag ever in the history of the world comes out we still have to pick it up. We’re partial to messengers for quicker shoots because they’re easier to get into and out of, but they all suffer from the same flaws: they look like camera bags and opening them is loud. You can’t shoot all stealthy-like and everyone knows that you’re running around with like $4k worth of camera gear in that LowePro bag. The Retrospective 5 Pinestone Camera Bag doesn’t have those issues. It looks like a normal, average, run-of-the-mill messenger, but it’s kitted out on the inside to take your DSLR or micro four thirds rig. In our opinion, the best feature is the sound silencers underneath the main flap which prevent that giant velcro noise from ruining your day, and your shot.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
