K-Tek offers a first-of-its-kind backpack that’s specially designed to help sound recordists carry their fully loaded mixer when traveling to rugged locations. The new Stingray Backpack LE (KSBP1) makes it fast to pack and unpack a comprehensive gear package and features such gems as multiple storage pockets, a hidden laptop compartment and a built-in stealth rain cover. It is fully adjustable and customizable, featuring ample MOLLE attachment points for additional gear. A strong and lightweight internal frame structure makes the versatile Backpack durable, substantial and protective.
Well-padded, the Stingray Backpack users the freedom to go where dollies and carts cannot— or are too complicated to use. It simplifies packing, and makes it more convenient and comfortable to travel by bus, rail and plane, as well as hiking to difficult destinations. A pre- packed mixer/recorder bag slides into the unique docking port, nesting there until called upon to record within seconds.
When using phone or tablet-based wireless control interfaces, the mixer bag can simply stay in the backpack as is; allowing for convenient, fast and stealth recording for the sound mixer. Hidden inside the waterproof bottom a stealth rain cover can quickly be wrapped around the exterior to protect all the gear from rain and view.
Optional accessories for the backpack include the Stingray Boom Cup Holder (KSBCH1) and a set of two Stingray Tension Straps (KSTS1) that allow miscellaneous additional cargo like the Stingray Harness be added to the large MOLLE area on the rear of the backpack.
The Stingray Backpack LE is compatible with K-Tek Mixer Bags including Stingray Small (KSTGS), Medium (KSTGM), Large (KSTGL), and Junior (KSTGJ). Additionally two extra pockets each can store a Small Gizmo Bag (KGBS1), as well as a battery or windscreen.
