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:
