nice wet panel carrier- PanelRoo

I just got these in the mail and wanted to share them with the plein air painting community. I found out about these PanelRoo panel carriers at a recent plein air workshop taught by Dawn Whitelaw from Nashville, TN. They are well made, lightweight, and come in lots of sizes. These are nice if you are carrying your gear in a backpack or traveling. The clips are useful because they won't get lost.




The clips are spring loaded, they press against the panels to hold them in place. They hold one panel per side.



I have in the backpack my Open Box M pochade box, brushes, paint, etc.



The corner edge is eased so no splinters.

You can purchase them here:

The other item I found out about at the workshop was Blue Ridge Oil Colors, but I haven't tried them yet, so can't comment. They are handcrafted in Asheville, NC. The prices are reasonable despite being handcrafted. They are available at blueridgeoilpaint.com.
Lori Putnam talks about them on her blog:

Re: nice wet panel carrier- PanelRoo

Good idea. It's similar to the PanelPak, which uses elastic bands. The problem with the elastic bands is they deteriorate over time, and rather quickly. The PanelRoo avoids this by using metal clips.

Re: nice wet panel carrier- PanelRoo

Both of these designs are pretty cool...despite having to replace the rubber bands, the panel pak looks just as cool as these Panel Roos....both interesting designs for sure....beats the heck out of my 3" deep luan box that's built to handle 4 9x12 panels.

Re: nice wet panel carrier- PanelRoo

Several months later. I'm still enjoying the PanelRoo holders quite a bit. I'm using them when I go plein air painting as well as to my figure drawing class. I've found thin 1/8" hardboard panels are a little bit flexible and can just barely touch in the middle if you press them together too much. These holders work best with plywood or more rigid type panels like gatorboard, etc.

Re: nice wet panel carrier- PanelRoo

PanelPak tells me they have changed elastic bands from natural to synthetic and that they are much more durable. I'm looking forward to trying them out.

I forgot to update everyone on this product - the PanelPak elastic bands work great! I've been using the the new bands for maybe four years on the 9x12 version, and they haven't broken once!

Thanks Matthew for posting these panel carriers. I've been looking for something like these, as a few others I have tried I'm not too happy with.
