Here’s a look at what makes THE ROADIE BACKPACK so special:
1680 Ballistic Nylon ExteriorHow durable is ballistic nylon? It was developed for the military for use in flak jackets to protect soldiers from shrapnel and other artillery debris. Itís the toughest material around, and thatís why we use it. Our ballistic nylon has a polyurethane coating to make it extremely water-repellent.
Versatile pockets on both sides of
the bag hold a monopod and
shotgun mic, and can also be
used for a tripod.
Top-Access Audio Gear CompartmentButterfly flaps on the top of the backpack allow quick access to audio gear and accessories like headphones, lav mics, recorders and anything else that you need to get at easily without opening the main camera compartment. The top compartment can also allow access to the main camera compartment, which allows larger equipment (bodies or lenses) to be removed without exposing the main camera compartment to strangers nearby.
