Hi guys which ditty bags / ac bags do you recommend, something not to big but easy to handle.

 

Thanks!

I started out using a Husky open top tool tote from home depot

http://www.homedepot...8AN13/204703616

 

It served me well for awhile, but eventually I wanted something more rugged and weatherproof, at which point I upgraded to a Modular 51 small set bag. It allowed me to carry most of what I needed, and served me well for a long time. It's held up to a ton of abuse, and holds the basics. It appears as though Modular 51 is out of business, however similar bags can be purchased from fikenca.com

 

Eventually, I found myself on a show that put us in the rain and mud a lot, so I opted to go full on with a Pelican 1510 case with trekpak dividers. This is my current setup and I like it, however it doesn't offer much room for expansion. It does, however, keep everything nice and dry and protected.

I know of Fikenca. Any other options out there in Vancouver that should be looked at?

Thanks!

Depends exactly what you're looking to do with it. Full blown feature film AC work is a rather different beast to making documentaries, etc. Fashion may pay a part. What're you up to?

See link for the the bags I'm looking at:
http://www.fikenca.com/camera-bags/

I have contacted this company, taking a bit long to get a quote so looking at any additional places.

As for my work, I have been on mainly TV Shows and about to start my first feature.
