    Coleman makes a cloth version of the ice-box and it is foldable. Maybe you can use this instead of the plastic ice-box. I used it for my reservist to keep our drinks cold for 1.5 days when we are in the field. I got it at Carrefour.

    Wah, so cold, you don't need dry-cab for your photography gear as the humidity should be low in SLS .

    I second of that.

    Dry box only lower humidity inside. When it stay quite long in cold place, inside the dry box also will cold (as cold as environment temp). Condensation happen when you take out your camera from cold place to hot place. IMHO, dry cab will not prevent condensation. It is as good as camera bag.

    I believe temperature in vacuum box will be like dry-box or camera bag. Unless, the box that using thermos construction that will prevent (or reducing) thermal transfer. Imagine, how big is the thermos to keep the camera and lenses .

    Do not wish to be rude but will doing this help?by not taking it out, the camera will still be condensing inside the bag right?just that you only take it out after the condensing has disappeared..(you dun see it but it is still happening...)

    i seldom experience such problems(never actually), cos cold countries already very dry, nothing to condense. even when i bring my cam from the cold outdoors to the warm indoors, the cam never gets wet.

    cold countries no problem. because the country is cold itself in the first place. so the RH value will be the same throughout.

    but then for singapore is quite crap. the RH value indoor is significantly lower than outside. so coming out of cold buildings will deinitely make any glass condense. your glasses as well.
