Porta Brace ATV-Z8 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Porta Brace ATV-Z8 reviews

    ATV-Z8 Audio Tactical Vest for Zoom F8 Portable Recorder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Without alternative until today Generally happy with it. Hopefully zippers won't disappoint, this became an issue with some of my latest PortaBrace gears. Looks sharp, the ZOOM F8 fits perfectly, one more pocket on each side of the hips would be a very useful addition. And one more thing: a wire channel built in the fabrics for getting the power from the pocket on the back hidden into the mixer bag in front. Guess the back bag will be used quite often for this purpose. Haven't found tactical gear on the net which looks made professional audio like this one from PortaBrace. Thanks guys.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back Saver!!! This vest makes all the difference when running as a one man sound department. Amazing weight distribution over the entire torso, as opposed to running a bag on a strap

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ideal audio solution! We just used this on a 3 day shoot where we were in different locations. Having all the multiple storage options was great! One thing we did find interesting was the zippers. There is a number of zippers on the vest and the cling like little bells when moving. An idea would be to have some rubber grips on them so they ton't chime. We ended up gaff taping the ends. Other than that, we found the vest to be great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This is a great vest for holding practically anything. However, it kinda makes you look like a suicide bomber. haha
