I use a 48" machete
Of course, since it is so big, I needed a larger camera bag than my Domke F2. When I filled up the larger camera bag I couldn't lift it. So I got a rolling bag but, couldn't fit it in the trunk of my Smart Car. So I sold the smart car and bought a big truck. But, it used too much gas so I downsized to a Smart Car again. I couldn't fit my roller bag in the Smart Car so I went back to a Domke F2 bag. But, I still couldn't fit the 48" machete into this bag.
All of a sudden I realized that I really don't need a 48" machete, my Leatherman Micro can do everything I need to do.
LIFE IS HELL, AIN'T IT?
