I’ve got to admit I am an old Meatloaf fan, so when I see this camera case has won a “Bat Outta Hell” award it definitely caught my attention.
WaterField Designs, a San Francisco-based designer of custom-fitted cases for digital gear, garnered this unique honor for their new Pic Pocket Camera Case, which comes in eight different sizes and six colors.
The new cases are constructed of custom-made ballistic nylon and accented with choice of eye-popping colors (three of which are leather).
Your digital gear nestles into the plush neoprene interior layer with a no-scratch liner and dual pockets. Each case closes with a self-locking YKK zipper and they are water and shock resistant (which we took the liberty of testing “old-school” style).
I opted for the ultra-hip taxi pattern to fit my video iPod and found I can also cram the USB cable into one of the inside pockets and a Griffin iTalk mic into the other.
For our cynical testing we loaded an egg inside the case and dropped it from arms height and then dunked it into a tub of water. Success on both counts (although we do not recommend trying these methods at home as we here at GearDiary.com are trained professionals).
I can attach the new case to my belt loop via the included carabiner ring or hook it to a D-ring on my daypack.
WaterField Designs sizes Pic Pocket Camera Cases using photographic terms that include (smallest to largest): Aperture, Composition, Exposure, Flash, Focus, Megapixel, Panorama and Zoom. My iPod gear loves the Zoom case, whose measurements are 4.5x3x1.5 inches.
I love this new little gear bag and love the fact that they are manufactured right here in the U.S.A.
Pricing ranges from $31-$36.
