Mountainsmith Kit Cube Traveler

As a traveling nature photographer, I’ve needed a better camera bag to safely carry my precious cargo of cameras, lenses, flashes, and other accessories. So, when I discovered the Mountainsmith Kit Cube Traveler made specifically for photographers on the go, I was thrilled! It’s exactly what I need for safely transporting my gear whether I’m traveling by car, train, or plane.

The Mountainsmith Kit Cube Traveler is a fully padded camera bag loaded with eight different soft, padded, fully moveable internal dividers that allow me to protect and organize my camera gear. For photo shoots I travel with two Canon D series camera bodies, two lenses (a 28-135mm and a 70-300mm), and my flash unit. There’s plenty of room for all of it. If I leave one of the camera bodies behind, I can bring my big 100-400mm lens along, too. (This camera bag is also sized for the Nikon D90 and D300 series cameras.)

Within the Mountainsmith Kit Cube Traveler, my gear all sits enveloped safely in soft yellow fleece fabric. Two zippered pockets are built into the inside top to hold memory cards, card download readers, small storage devices, and assorted cords. A tough water-resistant black nylon fabric protects the outside of the Mountain Kit Cube Traveler, and a sturdy fully zippered closure securely holds everything together. The bag has a handle and removable padded shoulder strap that snaps onto D-rings

What I like best about the Mountainsmith Kit Cube Traveler is that it fits perfectly inside my 22-inch wheeled carry-on luggage. I love this because it allows me to still put my gear into the overhead bins and easily wheel my gear around when I’m running across the airport in between flights. The Cube Traveler also fits inside some of the larger backpacks available, which is a big benefit for photographers who hike with their gear.

Bottom Line: I’m always looking for new ways to make traveling easier, and Mountainsmith’s Photo Kit Cube Traveler gives me piece of mind and has greatly reduced travel fatigue since it’s easy to stash in my carry-on bag.----C.W. (May 2012)
