Calumet WT3434 Wa­ter­tight Hard Case £200, $265 (cur­rency con­ver­sion)

NPhoto - - Gear Zone | Mini Test -

The WT3434 is hardly pe­tite, at 58 x 44 x 22cm (22.8 x 17.3 x 8.7in) in­side, and you don’t get wheels to help with its hefty 8.2kg (18lbs) mass. Even the chunky rub­ber-coated han­dle isn’t enough to lighten this load, though ex­tra han­dles on each end do mean that both arms – or a friend – can help you take the strain. In­side there’s space for se­ri­ous amounts of gear, in­clud­ing a su­per-tele­photo lens, all nes­tled in diced foam.

Four rugged catches, rather than the usual two, se­cure the lock­able lid, en­sur­ing that the neo­prene seal is clamped tightly to keep out water and dust. Top notch ma­te­rial qual­ity ex­udes ro­bust­ness, help­ing the WT3434 take our overzeal­ous abuse in its stride.
