    "In the snow" I'd rather drop one film from the canister instead of 10. Or even 5.

    Onto the ground, into the snow, whereever. Maybe I'm just overcautious

    I'd keep them in the plastic cans. Keeps dust and moisture out for the most part. When you get done shooting, just pop them back in. They aren't that much larger than the roll of film.

    If you want to keep some kind of structure to your load of film, you could tape a bunch of plastic cans together in a block. I'd put them all in a big ziploc freezer bag or some other kind of waterproof container.

    We were in New Zealand this past October -- it rained 8 out of 12 days. I was using 120 film and kept it in ziplock bags. The plastic canisters for 35mm is an added protection. An outfitting shop should have small bags probably waterproof that clip to a belt. Find one the size that will work for you. That would provide easy access without having to go into a backpack when you want to change rolls.

    Thinking about this a bit further, those little cases you linked to look cool. Anyone know of something available in the US like that? Or what small Pelican case stores 5-10 rolls of 35mm film snuggly?

    Tim Gray, from what I can see Japan Exposures is the only reliable source...Now if I can find out if they are waterproof and sealed tight...

    Customs? just like anywhere else in the world, Try not to sweat, don`t dart your eyes all over the place and keep your hands as still as possible and you will be through real quick.

    Hi Krys, If you get some plastic slide boxes the kind that slides come back from the processors in you can fit four cassettes in each of them, and put rubber bands round them to keep them closed, so with eight boxes you can carry all the film in a very small space and keep them clean and dry.
