One Handed

How much of your gear can you really use one-handed?

Sarah has been demanding lots of carrying lately and so I've been working on lots of things one-handed--including typing this entry.

I had to open my Otterbox PSK this weekend and simply could not get it done. I undid the first latch but the angles on the other one were all wrong. I tried right handed, I tried left-handed, and I even tried to use my body for additional leverage. No dice.



Now, lots of components inside the kit can be used one-handed but they're of little use to me if I can't get to them. Worst case scenario I could smash the box with a rock I suppose.

Food for thought...

Thanks bro - would have searched your blog, but I'm on my cell and happened to be looking at waterproof cases when I saw your post come through via RSS.

They'll be in this post.

Thank you kindly sir! I'll have to look at your blog later to see if you detail the components somewhere. I'm a bit nervous the 2000 will be too small, and unfortunately, I can't find one to look at in person.

Did you try flipping it over and opening it with one hand?
