Miggo Agua Quick-draw Storm-proof Holster 25 CSC

A quick-draw rainproof case for DSLR, mirrorless, and similar sized cameras. Room for a spare SD card and battery, but not much more. I purchased this rainproof camera case specifically for a recent backpacking and day hiking trip to Iceland and the Faroe Islands, where I anticipated any number of wet days but wanted to keep my camera handy. It comes in three sizes numbered 25, 35, and 45; the smallest comfortably accommodates my Sony Alpha 6300 mirrorless camera with an 18-200 mm/ f 3.5-5.6 zoom… Full review

Benro Slim Travel Kit - Carbon Fiber

A photographic tripod is not a usual guest on Trailspace, but this one deserves a fresh look from the hiker or cyclist’s point of view. Its main feature is combination of full-scale unfolded dimensions with small folded size (just 2L volume), suitable for bottle pocket in any daypack. Very small folded dimensions I do travel photography since 2005, and since then I've owned a couple of full-size tripods. It is known that the tripod may be really helpful in many travel situations: photographing… Full review

HME Trail Camera Holder Tree Mount

When heading out on a backpacking trip I'm always looking at ways to cut bulk and weight. I do a lot of photography and video, so having a tripod is an essential piece of gear, but sometimes it's just too cumbersome to pack and transport. Recently, I found a little device that I can use to get self portraits and blog-post shots without having to lug the tripod with me...it's called the Easy Mount Trail Camera Holder and it's made by the HME (that's Hunting Made Easy) company based in Texas. Although… Full review

Matador Camera Base Layer

Unique and usable way to protect your camera while around your neck or in your bag. As a member of another website, I sometimes receive gear to test in exchange for a review, and this is one time I know I will use it! As a nature and wildlife photographer, I’m outside shooting pictures in every type of weather, both on land and sea. I needed something to protect my camera from the elements, but also need it to be lightweight and easy to put on/remove. I ordered the Camera Base Layer and an additional… Full review

Matador Camera Base Layer

Was great at keeping my camera dry, even during some rainstorms. I am a big fan of how lightweight it is, but it comes at the expense of providing what I feel is adequate protection for some high impact situations. Overall a very good option for a lightweight camera bag. As a member of another website, I sometimes get the opportunity to test different products in exchange for a review. I photograph a lot on my adventures with a DLSR and noticed the Matador Base Layer, and a lightweight, protective… Full review

Scotty No. 135 Portable Camera Mount

Are you looking for a way to mount your action camera to your canoe/kayak/small boat? Look no farther than this handy little device. I'm reviewing the Scotty #135 camera/compass mount, an inexpensive, durable, and versatile little bracket that will allow you to easily set up your camera on your boat to allow you to capture some great hands-free shots while out paddling. Instead of a written review, I have put together a video review. Please check it out. Full review

Matador Camera Base Layer

This is a camera case designed to protect the camera being used by active photographers. I have summer/canoe protection for my camera, but when snowshoeing in winter, or foul weather hiking any season, the neoprene case I have used is inadequate. This case provides impact protection, and has an integrated rain fly for the camera. It also can be removed from the camera in seconds, so you don't miss that awesome wildlife shot! I purchased this case, when I received a new camera, as a warranty replacement. Full review

Cotton Carrier Strapshot

Great for quick access. I originally became aware of this while hiking in the Adirondack High Peaks and saw someone using it. He recommended this and now that I have one I do as well.  The main part attaches to your pack by tight and secure Velcro. Then on the bottom of your DSLR you screw in an adaptor that will slide into the clip attached to your pack. Included with the carrier is a hand strap for your camera. It makes it easier to grab your camera and slide it out from the strap holder. You… Full review

Joby Gorillapod Original

I am actually on my third Gorillapod (explanation to follow!), and have been actually generally pleased with it. I use it for photos of our group when hiking or paddling, self-pictures when I am alone on an adventure, or attached to our kicksled to take videos with our Olympus Stylus TG-2 camera (no, we are not GoPro users). This seems to work fine as a small, flexible, tripod, for basic uses. Okay, immediate disclosure. I am on my third Gorillapod because I lost #1 (black and grey) at a canoe launch… Full review
