I keep mine in a Lowepro and when I go I use my trunk safer than leaving at home. I have an in house thief and no way will I leave my gear at home. This totally sucks when you can't trust a family member

I'm strictly an outdoor photographer so my gear (all of it) is crammed into a backpack style pack. Its used several times a week so its just "grab and go" and I'm out there with everything I need.

I tried shoulder bags but got a herniated disc from the uneven heavy load out and I tried leaving some gear behind but then I invariably wish I had that (fill in the gear here) which was left behind. So, I just go with the backpack.

Why would you need a de-humidifier in your safe.. or is it located in an unheated/low heated area?

Ron

If you live in a very dry area and are in your safe on a daily basis you probably could not have a de-humidifier. You would be surprised how much moisture is in the air. Without light and circulation moisture condenses faster.

Safe de-humidifiers do not work like a traditional de-humidifier. They are a rod that heats up to about 160 degrees. The heated air rises and causes the air to circulate. Because the air circulates the moisture in the air has a harder time condensing on anything thus preventing rust and fungus.

All in a Lowepro Vertex 300AW, inside a large fire resistant gun safe. I would love to have it even more accessible, but too many upstanding individuals want your stuff worse than you do, but don't want to pay for it!

I also keep a running list of anything valuable with ser #'s in a fire box as well, (which I can't recommend enough), no one seems to know serial #'s on anything after a break in.

Just call me security conscious, haha.
