PocketWizard’s New Lunch Box… I Mean Bag.
PocketWizard is to radio transceivers what Kleenex is to tissues. PW’s have become the industry standard and the benchmark which all other radio transceivers/transmitter & receiver combos are measured. This week PocketWizard introduced the G-Wiz Vault Storage Solution… What is it? To me it would appear to be the fancy name for a lunch box…
Now don’t get me wrong, I love bags. I find a new camera bag that has a cool little feature and I lust after it… Not sure why, but I have always been this way. When I was a kid I loved getting new back packs for school every year. So when I heard PocketWizard was making a bag I got all warm and excited inside… Then I saw it.
Look PocketWizard, I commend you for the effort, but you aren’t fooling anyone. This “Vault Storage Solution,” looks like it would also be handy at keeping my sandwich and juice box cold. I was half surprised it didn’t come with a thermos… I honestly cannot see the point to this little bag, and maybe I am missing it, but why would I buy this bag to hold my PocketWizards when I already have a storage solution for them in one of my many camera bags that I purposely bought to hold ALL of my gear? I guess if I was packing light and I wanted a little protection for my camera body in my suitcase, this little bag could work out, but otherwise… I don’t know. What do you guys think? Would this come in handy for you or have you already got a method for storing your PocketWizards (or other radio transmitter devices)?
