The Ultimate Photographers Bag MKIII

October 16, 2012

MKIIIDesigned in collaboration with John Watson of And refined with Tom Briggs who shoots for clients like Nike, Red Bull and Specialized. The MKIII model carries all the gear you need for a mobile shoot. It features a 12″x12″ photo compartment–Reinforced with ABS plastic panels to keep your gear safe. The dividers can be arranged in a wide variety of ways to accommodate multiple DSLR bodies(with grip attached), lenses, flashes, batteries, chargers....or remove a row of dividers to fit smaller DV cameras. Due to the larger allotment of space for the photo gear, the upper compartment is smaller and compartmentalized for the traveling photographer. Pockets for cables, phone, iPad or laptop, and the main compartment will fit a change of clothes and jacket.
To add flexibility of carrying capacity, and customization of the bag, Natick Labs MOLLE system is used on the exterior. It can now be modified by the photographer for special requirements. Pouches and pockets can be added anywhere on the bag, thus making it ultimately customizable.

This month we have pivoted to making protective face masks from densely woven cotton fabric. They can be washed or UV sterilized. We are distributing these to local front-line workers, as fast as we can get them sewn up. We are also including a pair of face masks with all ILE orders in the month of April over $100. 

If you are a front-line worker and are in need of masks shoot an email to and we will do our best to meet your needs. 
For those who don't need masks but would like to support mask production at ILE, a GIFT CARD is a great way to do this. 
Hope everyone is staying safe during this difficult time.
