Get creative on the go with the LaCie Rugged BOSS

If you’re tired of lugging laptops and bulky devices around when shooting atop a mountain or on busy city streets, or if you simply need a fast, easy way to review raw footage on your commute, then we’ve got just the thing for you. Compatible with iPad Pro, the incredible LaCie Rugged BOSS can make copying, reviewing and managing content while on location computer free.

Designed for photographers and creatives who need to work on the go but don’t want the hassle that comes with carrying sizable equipment, the battery-operated LaCie Rugged BOSS allows you to quickly and comfortably back up your content in the field. It’s a handy solution if you often find yourself running out of card space, too.

And with no need to use a laptop, it’s easy to connect to a smaller device (we recommend the iPad Pro) and preview images straight from the device – no transfers required, no interruptions to your shooting schedule.

Rugged means rugged

The LaCie Rugged BOSS is built to withstand the rigours of on-location photography or videography. When protected by a distinctive orange rubber cover, it’s rated to absorb drops of up to 1.2m, while splash and dust resistance keep your drive safe in all terrains. Portability is another huge advantage. Measuring only 36mm x 110mm with a depth of 136mm, it weighs just over 0.51kg ­– ideal for physically demanding environments.

One-button backup

If the orange casing is the LaCie Rugged BOSS’s practical attire, the Action button is definitely its party trick. Just one press lets you back up files from an SD card or USB-connected device via Easy Copy for the ultimate in on-location simplicity, and you can use the built-in status screen to monitor the transfer process. Connect to an iPad Pro, for example, and you can press the Action button to immediately search the device for files, then press again to confirm you wish to copy them all to the drive. It’s as simple as that.

Easy to connect 

As well as playing nicely with iPad, the LaCie Rugged BOSS can connect with any Thunderbolt 3, USB-C and USB 3.0 device, as well as both Mac and Windows computers. The box includes a USB-C cable, a USB-C to USB-A cable, a Lightning cable, a micro-USB cable, a USB-C cable for mobile devices, and a microSD card adaptor – ensuring you can use your drive with whatever piece of kit you have with you. The SSD can also act as a docking station for computers and mobile devices, or even charge phones running low on battery.
