Film Devices Rack-N-Bag for sound recordists

Film Devices “Rack-N-Bag” is a new approach to location sound bags. As the name suggests, the Rack-N-Back is a combination sound bag and location rack.

The Rack-N-Bag consists of 2 base components, an outer shell, and a rigid frame. With the outer shell on, it acts like an ordinary sound bag which can be attached to a harness, shoulder strap, or a carbon fiber handle.

When the outer ballistic nylon shell is removed it converts to a desk console with a kickstand to prop it up. All connections are fully accessible and all models have a top tier section that can be tilted at an angle to hold front control wireless receivers and transmitters.

The top tier height can be specified when ordering to accommodate a second row of wireless devices. Various sized standoffs will be available to change heights of the platforms as your equipment changes.
