If you are a photography enthusiast the Lowepro brand may be familiar to you.
Lowepro creates serious bags for serious photographers, or as they like to call them “modern, digital storytellers”. I kind of like that.
You can check out all sorts of cool bags and other gear on on their site www.lowepro.com
In fact, if you’re into drones they have a cool drone case you can check out HERE
Why a photography professional’s bag for a wireless LAN professional?
And as any good professional will tell you being able to improvise and repurpose items for your tool kit is essential.
This bag works great for keeping your gear safe and secure while traveling through airports all over the world. And with all the compartments it makes organizing (and being able to retrieve) your gear an easy task.
- It’s very light and very lean design allows the professional to carry everything they need when traveling by plane.
- Your gear will stay protected with the convenience of a rolling case.
- Comes with a smooth, telescoping handle system with rails that don’t interfere with the gear inside of the bag.
- All the compartments are padded and fully adjustable so you can customize the compartments for your own individual needs.

…Watertight, Crush-Proof and Dust-Proof.
No doubt about it Pelican cases are hard core and tough – Like the Lowepro, Pelican cases are designed with professional photographers in mind. Knowing both brands are carrying very fragile items like lenses and cameras you know they can handle your own WLAN tools without a problem.
What others are saying…
The article is a bit older but I like what he concludes about Lowepro and his prediction seems to have come true…
Lowepro had a string of months where it seemed they were ready to slip off the map into obscurity, but recent pushes into realms where they were previously uncomfortable, Hardside included, shows me they still have a dog in the bag fight… That aside, they’re extremely well constructed and require no maintenance ad infinitum, a huge advantage over their competitor. I think with a few more tweaks to the larger cases, Lowepro has a real winner in their hard case line.

Q & A with Keith
Keith made the switch from Pelican to Lowepro here are a few questions I asked him about his switch…
What do you like most about the Lowepro case?
The ability to quickly reconfigure the space. I try and use smaller cases for different groups of items, then these smaller cases go into customized spaces in the Lowepro.
Which model are you currently using?
I have both the 100 and 200 – and use whichever works best for the job I’m on. The smaller 100 can carry about everything I need for a training gig, but the 200 can also carry all the training materials plus some extra items that allow me to also do consulting gigs while on a trip.
Why did you switch from the Pelican case?
I used Pelican cases for over 10 years – and loved them. Many of my Pelican cases had over 1 millions air miles. But they were heavy and I’ve found my Wi-Fi gear doesn’t need that extra protection the hard-case provides. And the Lowepro is easier to move around on-site and through airports.
What are you using your Lowepro case for primarily?
I use the Lowepro cases to carry a variety of Wi-Fi related gear. Computers, USB NIC Cases, various power supplies and adapters for different countries, tools, GPS devices, flashlights, lasers, etc.

Steve Leytus is the president of Nuts About Nets — a software company that specializes in the development of low-cost, wireless diagnostic tools. Nuts About Nets was formed in 2006 when Steve painfully recognized that at middle age he was no longer employable as a software developer — so the only option was to create a company and hire himself. Prior to that 15 years developing software for embedded devices and data acquisition for medical devices. And prior to that another 15 years as a research biochemist and molecular biologist. Steve holds a few patents — in the areas of organic chemistry, molecular biology, using 802.11 to determine the best channel, and RF frequency coordination and intermodulation analysis.
In our industry, there are numerous and often conflicting ideas surrounding what’s ‘best’ for a given deployment. We all (VARs, customers, manufacturers) often find ourselves balancing the real world with any number of best practices advice.
