New Wave u.go™ Anywhere™ Pochade Box
The New Wave u.go™ Anywhere™ Pochade Box was designed for plein air painting from sea to summit and everywhere in between. uGo products are designed and manufactured by New Wave in Pennsylvania, USA. Each tree’s inherent beauty, shown in the grain lines, knots, and varying wood tones, combines with each handcrafted pochade box to create an item that is uniquely yours. Patent Pending.
Size/Weight: Measuring 11″x14.5″x1.25,” the large u.go pochade box is ultra lightweight at 3.15 lbs, with palette included.
Materials: This pochade box is made using Baltic Birch wood, while stainless steel and aluminum accents provide strength where needed most. All hardware is non-corrosive.
Wood Finish: The Baltic Birch is hand sanded, and finished with New Wave’s proprietary wood finish for maximum durability. The finish is non-porous, dense, and resistant to water and standard artist solvents and mediums. In addition, the finish is crack proof, chip proof, and non-yellowing.
Magnetic Components: Strong rare earth magnets are used for the closure, panel/canvas holder, removable side wall for palette cleaning, and accessory side tray attachment.
Friction Hinges: Sturdy 180° range of motion to position the pochade box as vertical or horizontal. Horizontal set up is perfect for watercolor painting.
Tripod Mount: uGo Anywhere Pochade Boxes are compatible with universal 1/4″ tripod mounts.
Palette: A high density plastic palette is included. Oil paints can be removed with solvents, and dry acrylic paint peels off. A tempered glass upgrade is available in grey or clear. Paint can be stored on the palette when the lid is closed thanks to a recessed palette and recessed lid.
Recessed Storage Compartment: Located at the rear of the palette, a recessed storage compartment measures approximately 9.5″ x 1.12″ and 0.88″ in depth with a closed lid. Use it to hold brushes, paint tubes, wet paint, and more.
Product Storage: The pochade box’s smooth exterior, free of protruding components allows for quick and easy storage.
Surfaces: The maximum Recommended Painting Surface is 14″ Vertical. Teeth on the stainless steel panel holders are capable of holding panels as thin as 1/16″ and stretched canvas up to 3/4″ thick. The large pochade box is ideal for 1/8″ panels to ensure an ultralight setup.
