What do you all use to keep your important gear dust free when not filming?

Long time = plastic bag with vacuum and silica gel
Short time = pelican box

I've been looking into the Ruggard EDC-80L Electronic Dry Cabinet (80L).

Has some really decent reviews.

It gets hella humid here in Brisbane, so maybe this is the route to take..

ah, sorry, you said when not filming. Yes, of course cases, bags, covers. This summer I took my Aputure 300d II bag with me for lenses and filters. Works well, considering it is inside a tipi with a fireplace.

What Carlo suggested above. Lots of Silica Gel too. If it is pretty humid, yes those dry cabinets will do a lot of good.
