The CTC-3 case has a specially designed padded EVF compartment for protecting the delicate viewfinder, which allows you to spend less time and energy breaking down your camera rig.
The Traveler is constructed using abrasion-resistant ultra-durable Cordura® Nylon (1000-denier) for long-life reliability in harsh field conditions. Portabrace Cordura material is also woven with an extra layer of water-resistant treatment and is cold-crack tested at -40°F for 4 hours. The case also has one-inch thick foam padding, reinforced by hollow-core plastic on the bottom and sides that combine to provide maximum protection in a lightweight format. A layer of non-slip, water-proof material has been added to the exterior bottom panel of the case to provide even greater protection against water and dirt when the case is placed on the ground. This waterproof layer can easily be wiped clean. The Traveler Case is sewn using triple bonded nylon threads and our all thread-ends are flamed to extend the life of the case and strengthen seems. Back-tacking stitch methodology is used to create superior strength along seams and at the connection points of the carry handles and solid-steel strap rings.
During transport, the padded side walls fit snugly against the camera. A padded foam support block (CC-STUFFER) is also included, which sticks to the bottom of the case using Velcro® to support the lens and provide an extra level of protection against bumps when you're on the move.
The case is designed with a single, extra durable YKK® zipper that opens the case up wide to make accessing the camera quick. There's a "zipper hood" made using Cordura® material that runs the length of the zipper in order to extend the life of the zipper and prevent water from rain or splashing to get inside the case. A padded genuine-suede shoulder strap is included for superior carry comfort and durability.
There is a single 6-inch x 3-inch x 5 inch exterior pocket ideal for carrying additional small accessories. This pocket has a press-pass / ID window for conveniently displaying your credentials. An additional, longer exterior pocket (12-inch x 3-inch x 4-inch) is ideal for a shotgun mic or grip-control and arm.
Please note that cameras with shotgun mics may require an alternate case model. Please contact us to assure proper fit for your specific camera setup.

And while professional audio and video technology continues to change at a relentlessly fast pace, one thing has remained the same for over 40 years: our commitment to quality. From the highest quality materials, to the hand-built wooden equipment models, to the reinforced sewing techniques designed to strengthen weight-bearing contact points, our production processes are designed to make our cases the toughest and most reliable products available.
