Best Mirrorless Camera Bag This is a terrific camera bag. Sure, it looks a bit corporate, but it's shockingly functional, with lots of varying storage with sublime structural integrity. Perhaps the best part is the zipper on top that gives immediate access to your camera without even having to tear at any velcro. The Tenba is larger than the others we tried out. We even comfortably carried a 5D Mark III with a lens. If you don't mind that bit of extra girth, it's an all-around delight. More »

Other minimalist shoes do that too, but these do it better. More »

The Best LED Torch The M3X is shaped like a normal torch light but much skinnier than similar-length Mag Lights, measuring just 2.5 inches in diameter. This light has a big, beautiful beam bright enough to illuminate a wall 15m away in broad daylight and a maximum range of about 500m at night. More »
