The Filter Hive organizes both filters and accessories in padded protection and a plush liner that won’t scratch glass or resin or cause fogging, like the plastic liners in many filter cases.

The secure outside zipper protects against dust, debris and moisture and a zippered interior pocket keeps small items secure.
