The Porta Brace ATV-Z8 is a military-style audio tactical vest designed to safely hold and provide convenient access to a Zoom F8 recorder and related accessories for sound recordists, mixers, and boom operators in ENG, television, video production, and field recording. Combining the functionality of a bag and harness, the adjustable vest delivers comfortable support and even weight distribution while preserving mobility and equipment access. Padding minimizes fatigue, and the mesh back ensures breathability.
Attach your most commonly needed items to the front of the vest, and store lesser-needed contents on the rear. An NP1 pocket offers a consistent location for your batteries, with additional storage courtesy of an iPad pouch, phone and pen holders, and a rain cover that can serve as an extra pouch. Between recordings, a dedicated clip can hold your boompole so you can rest your arms.
