Good box, not best

This was my first pochade box, and it worked very well. It is sturdy, it’s a beautiful polished wood, it can hold both labels and canvases up to 14” tall, and it fits into a backpack easily. I used it with the Sienna tripod which is very high quality but heavy. This and the Strada may be the fastest to set up and take down. It’s a great option, but ultimately I wanted something either lighter for travel (so I got the small 8×10 open box m and a compact tripod) or with a larger mixing area (so I use the Art box and panel from James Coulter when in town).
