Porta-Brace: Quadcopter backpack takes flight

A backpack designed to carry the DJI Phantom quadcopter has been introduced by Porta-Brace. The BK-2SVN has a hollow-core rigid plastic frame to provide protection while remaining lightweight. The frame has a layer of foam padding and durable, abrasion-resistant Cordura material. The padded straps are lined with a soft nylon mesh to improve comfort and airflow, and there is a suede-leather handle for carrying the case by hand.

Also new is Porta-Brace’s Backpack Camera Case (BC-2NRF), which can carry camera, tripod, accessories and up to 17-inch laptop. An exterior tripod sleeve and cinch keep a tripod securely in place, and there are two side pockets and a front pocket for accessories.

For quicker access, there is a new large HDSLR Messenger Bag designed to carry camera, multiple lenses, memory cards, and an iPad. There is also a fold out flap, lined with anti-skid material, to hold a monopod.

If a messenger bag isn’t hip enough, there are several new hip-belt cases, including the HIP-3LENS offering quick-access to spare lenses, and the HIP-2GP for GoPro cameras and accessories. The Cordura hip packs can be worn in front or back positions, have a semi-rigid, padded frame, and are lined with soft Veltex. There are extra pockets for cords and additional small accessories.
