The PortaBraceAO-688S Audio Organizer “SILENT” Pro Audio Bag for Field Recorders (Black) is designed for use with audio field mixers and quiet connectors. Lightweight yet rugged construction—the kind professionals have come to expect from us up here in Vermont—are also key features of the Audio Organizer.
The bag keeps things quiet while recording thanks to its nearly noiseless magnetic connectors. It also features rubber-tipped zippers, which prevent the sound of metal on metal. Other thoughtful touches include fully detachable side panels for easy access to mixer inputs and outputs, and MOLLE strips for conveniently holding receivers, cables, headphones, and the like. You will also find hop pouches on either side, along with a zippable flask holder. Additionally, the Piggin’ String lends a hand with longer coils of cable and extension cords.
A light but strong aluminum frame ensures a sturdy case that won’t weigh you down. In fact, this Audio Organizer, at 2.7lb, weighs almost half that of competitor’s cases. The exterior is made from durable waterproofed 1000-Denier Cordura, protecting it from the elements, and the roughest environments. The interior keeps your gear safe with its soft and protective material. Two padded dividers provide extra security. One pad also has a removable elastic wireless holder that can accommodate up to 3 wireless units.
When it comes to transporting the bag, durable nylon handles with suede ensure a reliable grip. The case can also be carried using the comfortable HB-10M adjustable suede shoulder strap. “D” rings allow for attachment to a harness. You can be certain that just like all other PortaBrace cases, this one was made at our factory in Vermont and will last for many years to come.
