Review: SKB iSeries 2011-7 Waterproof Utility Case

SKB’s iSeries 2011-7 waterproof utility case offers some welcomed refinements not found in competing products

One of the challenges of being a commercial photographer that travels frequently from assignment to assignment is that we often find ourselves having to travel with some rather expensive equipment.
