The PortaBrace Tripod Shellpack - 41 is a padded case with an armored interior shell. The case is very rugged and can be used for everyday field work or withstand the rigors of extensive travel. It is a real alternative to heavy, unforgiving freighter cases. The case gives a distinct advantage over traditional cases by providing lightweight durability, secure padded protection, and convenient internal and external pockets. Interior tie downs and cushioning provide secure protection for your valuable equipment. The ShellPack has a backpacking system and carry handle the same as the Tripods Mummy Pack. When prepared for travel the shoulder straps hide away in their own compartment and the padded carry handle is completely covered for snag-free transport.
