Welcome to dickblick
No other choice in pochade boxes offers so much quality and utility for so little money as Guerrilla Painter. Beautifully engineered and constructed, the Guerrilla design has been perfected for more than 25 years by plein air painter Carl Judson for maximum durability, versatility, and portability.
Guerrilla Painter's super-lightweight, tiny, "studio in a box" Pocket Box is a true, traditional "pochade box" with room for oil or watermedia essentials. Lightweight, compact, and convenient, it weighs only 1 lb, yet it holds two wet panels in the lid.
Open the lid and you're practically ready to start painting — simply adjust and lock the lid in any position over 180°. Close the lid and everything is completely protected and ready to transport.
Unlike many other pochade boxes, the Guerrilla Painter Pocket Box is perfectly balanced for laptop or tabletop painting. It is also pre-drilled for the addition of a universal tripod mount or bumper feet, if you choose to add them.
The Pocket Box is constructed of strong, lightweight wood laminate with rust-proof stainless steel and aluminum hardware.
The Pocket Box measures 8" × 5½" × 3" (20 cm × 14 cm × 7.6 cm) and weighs 1 lb (0.5 kg).
Nylon Utility Strap
Made of lightweight nylon with plastic clips, this 1" wide utility strap is compatible with all Guerrilla Painter Pochades and Wet Painting Carriers.
Palette Extension Kit
Double your work space and increase the flexibility of your Pocket Box with this hinged palette extension. Made of birch plywood and aluminum, it features holes to rest your brushes, and little metal feet that keep it elevated above your palette when closed. It easily attaches into the existing pilot holes on the Pocket Box. Note: With the Palette Extension Kit installed, the Pocket Box will only accommodate one wet panel.
Pocket Box Bag
This zippered nylon tote includes a large outside pocket for supplies, a small pocket on the back for an ID card, a mesh interior pocket for paints and brushes, and a nylon shoulder strap. The bag weighs ½ lb and measures 10" × 6½" × 4" (25 cm × 17 cm × 10 cm).
Pocket Box Kit
This set includes a Guerrilla Painter Pocket Box, Pocket Box Bag, Large Mouth Single Palette Cup, Mighty Mite Jr. Brush Washer, Set of 4 Flat Pocket Bristle Brushes, 5" × 7" Plein Air Gessoed Panel, and Composition Finder, plus A Guerrilla Painter's Notebook volumes 1 and 2 (containing company founder Carl Judson's essays on his adventures in Guerrilla Painting).
Pocket Bristle Brushes, Set of 4 Filberts
These brushes are just like Guerrilla Painter brushes, but made to Guerrilla Painter's exclusive specifications to fit the Pocket Box and ThumBox. High-quality, interlocked Chungking bristles are inserted into nickel-plated ferrules and attached to two-tone wood handles. The four-brush set includes one each of Filbert size 2, 4, 6, and 8.
Tripod Mount and Rubber Bumper Feet Set
Your Guerrilla Painter Pocket Box is ready for any tripod with this universal tripod mount that affixes easily with the included screws to the pre-drilled holes in the Pocket Box. Four rubber bumper feet are also included.

I like the New thumb box
from Novato, CA.
It's the perfect travel size, the bag allows storage for paint tubes . I needed small and portable, it seems well made hope it holds up. I like the thumb hole option in the bottom but it does prevent good storage for paints. Wish it could be closed off. But it's perfect for hiking out and doing small paintings in California and working with in the car during lunch.

Just one little complain
from Sabana Grande, PR
I got just one little complain about this product, the rest is all good in my opinion. This box is intended to hold or carry two panel. Mine just allowed one (the front one) to be inserted between the metal holders because the back space was just two narrow. The metal holder, separators or whatever you might call had the back metal points wide open projecting to the back of the lid and preventing the back panel to fully fit in there. I just used pliers to make them narrow. If you need to do so be careful because those separators got just one delicate soldering point to their bases. But beside that the are just nice and neat.
perfect painting kit in a box!
from Yreka, Ca
I love the compact size of this kit. I can take it anywhere and set up is fast and easy. I spend more time creating my art and less time looking for my tools now! I enjoy using it at the beach, park and back yard.

great for adaptions of my equipment
from Tucson, AZ
Super for adapting the equipment I had when I could not find the exact plein air box for my tripod. I will admit I had to look for a while until I found this.

Absolutely LOVE it!
from New Zealand
This is the second pochade I've used (the first was the Sienna) and this one meets my requirements completely. I use it for my small daily oil paintings indoors and out, so both portability and durability are important. It is light enough to hold in one hand and can be used on a tabletop but, more importantly, it is perfectly stable when fitted to a tripod - no wobbles whatsoever. Although it is designed for 5"x7" paintings, I clip 8"x10" and 6"x8" linen panels to it no problem and slot in/balance a larger wooden palette on it when I want more mixing space. The palette extension with holes for brushes is very useful. My only slight criticism is that when in use, the extension sits up a little at an angle rather than horizontally, so when using the pochade on a desk, long-handled brushes tend to lean inward and get in the way (not a problem when hand-held, fitted to a tripod or when using short-handled brushes). Additional holes along the short side of the extension (as shown in the advertising) would have been good too, but these are not huge issues. All in all, this is a wonderful little pochade box that I can take and use anywhere.
