Gear that’s portable and packable is a fantastic asset to have in your rig. Keeping your gear light is ideal for camping, great for small spaces, and saves on storage in your rig. Little things can pack a big punch. Even if those little things are silly, if they increase your joy and make you have more fun on your next adventure, then they’re worth it. In this edition of Gear Box, we’re bringing you some packable gear that’s worth the space in your rig.
This versatile bag meets all of your needs with deployable shoulder pads, side grab handles and body panel zip access.

Requires a Peak Design Case or Universal Adapter (sold separately), also works with MagSafe phones and phone cases.
