Pros: Well constructed
Cons: A bit pricey

This takes all of the hassle of organizing your Pelican case away. LowePro has worked with photographers to create a storage system that fits inside the ahrd case giving you the advantage of both an organized solution as well as the rugged/ waterproof case that will protect your gear.


A slim, attaché-style bag is sized to fit a waterproof Pro Extreme hard case (or a Pelican 1520). It has removable tripod straps; metal hardware; a padded, contoured shoulder strap; and fully customizable interior equip the Omni Pro for commercial shoots. The Omni Pro has front and top zips so gear is accessible in the Pro Extreme case.


The large see-thru pockets are a real plus to keep those small items as well as documents that always seem to get lost in the larger spaces in your black bag.


One downside is the fully populated bag will at once be quite heavy and will make you check your insurance coverage. Most air carriers allow this as carry luggage. It would be a good idea to have TSA locks just in case.


Both the fabric case and the hard case can be permanently engraved or embroidered for easy identification.


If you make your living shooting you already have one, if not you will soon.
