The folks over at TAP and DYE have released something really special for the film photographer out there. They’re called the Tap and Dye LEGACY Shooters Film pouch and it’s a special case designed to specifically hold your rolls of film. The pouch adheres to many of the standards and overall identity of TAP and DYE; and with that said it sports Martexin waxed canvas and oil dyed leather accents. Five rolls of 120 film or 35mm film can be crammed into here.
The Tap and Dye LEGACY Shooters Film pouch differs from other options like the Japan Camera Hunter cases in that it’s a heck of alot more patina in its looks. JCH is made of pretty hard plastic but the TAP and DYE option will appeal more to the photographer that simply wants a different look. It closes up via a leather strap where as the JCH snaps together. Drop the JCH holder and it may open up and you film rolls are bound to “roll out” pun not intended. But with the Tap and Dye, that won’t happen. To be fair, the JCH holder snapping together is probably more likely to keep out moisture or anything like that.
But even if you’re not a film shooter, you can probably store other things in there like batteries, small flashes, cables, SD cards, etc. Granted they’ll be moving about, but who cares?
Here’s more from the description page:
