BOLD Camera Bag from Wooden Camera is Tough as Nails and Conveniently Sized
We don't feature bags too often on here, but the BOLD bag from Wooden Camera definitely stands out among many other competitors. Travelling with gear is a pain, no question about it, and if you're flying with an expensive camera, the last thing you want to do is put it in checked baggage -- because there is always that chance it won't make it to your destination. You've got to have a bag that fits airline regulations, but you also want it to be strong, and the BOLD bag checks off both boxes without being a hard plastic case.

I really like when a lot of thought is put into designing a product, and there is no question that is the case here. The fact that it fits perfectly in the Pelican cases as described above is a huge benefit, and it means you can be extra secure about your gear when you know you need to be in a harsh environment and it's going to be knocked around, or you need it to be absolutely sealed and protected from the elements. This isn't going to fit a large camera like an Alexa, but it will fit practically everything out there, and if you've got a Canon C300, EPIC/SCARLET, or DSLR, you can leave the camera more or less fully kitted and ready to go when you need to start shooting.
The see-through panel inside is a nice touch, and it's just another one of those additions that makes its way into a product when people are really thinking about production first. This definitely isn't a cheap bag at $460, but with bags you usually get what you pay for. If you buy a bag like this, it should last you 5-10 years, so if you consider the cost over a number of years, it ends up being a good investment to protect your camera on the go.
