New from Peli – The 1535 Air + Pre-installed Trek Pak
There is nothing I trust more to look after my camera kit than my 1510. It’s loved and has the scars to match. It has been by my side everyday looking after the cameras that provide my income.
A few years ago, Epic Photographer Tom Barnes showed me some of the kit he carries in his case ( which was pretty pimped I must say ). we both shoot in the same way using the same tethertools cables and like the idea of having a portable workstation – hence we both turned to the 1510. Tom also used the killer Trek Pak System.

For a while the 1510 or the storm case was the only real option for a photographer looking to travel and work. The news today that there is a NEW case coming which is lighter and you can buy with TrekPak Pre installed is very exciting. The 1535 weighs in at 3.9kg compared to the 6.2kg of the 1510.

For a while now I have had many questions on TrekPak – It’s a pretty rad rack & pin system that lets you change and adapt the layout of any bag or case – not just Peli cases. They can be used to make the layout for tour cases, tool cases or anything to be honest.
Check out this video which shows how Trek Pak fits into your case. The image above it my 1510 kitted with the system. I can not wait to get my hands on the new 1535 Air case though. I do hope I can get the new cases in yellow
