The Armored Light Case is a padded wheeled carrying case and backpack with a lightweight armored interior shell. The case is very rugged and can be used for everyday field work or extensive travel and shipping as an alternative to heavy hard shell ABS plastic cases. Fold-away backpack straps keep your hands free and make it more comfortable to carry heavy light kits.
The ALC is ideal for carrying multiple light heads such as Arrilite 575+, 700+, and 2000+, stands and accessories.
The exterior of the case is made using abrasion-resistant 1000-denier Cordura® nylon. There are two (2) case-length exterior accessory pockets for storing cables and other items. Each exterior side also has two (2) 20-inch slip pockets. There is also a clear vinyl window for displaying a press-pass, business card, or other identification.
There is a single heavy-duty YKK® zipper that runs the length of the case to make accessing your light kit quick and easy. A Cordura® zipper guard extends the life of the zipper and helps keep rain or water from getting in to the case.
Inside there are four (4) hanging padded pouches to provide extra protection for the lights during transport. Four (4) padded dividers are included to separate and organize the light heads and accessories. Comfortable suede handles are supplied for carrying and an extra set of suede handles are attached on the sides of the case for lifting heavy loads in and out of vehicles.
The ALC comes with off-road inline skate wheels with ball-bearings for smooth rolling over almost any surface. The wheels are attached to solid steel plates for extra strength and are removable to avoid getting caught and damaged during shipping and air-travel baggage checking.
Portabrace cases have been built by hand in Vermont since 1972. 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.
