Description: Useful/Fast, Incredibly Strong/Durable and Handsome - Designed in that order.
A general purpose case which requires 1 very full week to carefully construct.
It's hard to convey how much hard work and time goes into constructing these items or the beautiful quality of materials used. My goal was to build a case that with simple care should hopefully last you lifetime and be easy to use.
For camera use, these are built far better than the good old days in my honest opinion (I collect old hand-sewn camera/hunting cases) and hope Agent will become a constant companion that will only get better and more distinctive with time.
I have no interest in luxury, only the highest quality. Because these cases are designed solely around their use, it is my hope that they will prove to be timeless as well. I believe the open plan interior should be future proof.
