10 x 12 Bitterroot Lite Pochade Box

With a two-panel lid and two clip-on work trays the Bitterroot Lite is for painters who like to minimize weight and yet retain a capacious work area.

Trays store on top of the box where they can also carry brushes. Shaves a couple of pounds off the regular boxes, puts less weight on the tripod, and carries easily.
