PortaBrace ATV-MIXPRE6 Reviews

Absolutely wonderful. Not perfect, but pretty close

This vest is absolutely awesome! Pros: It is very versatile in fit. I'm a large person and the way it's made is comfortable in both width and height. It's VERY adjustable. The design is VERY well thought out. Pocket locations. So forth. And almost all of it is completely velcro adjustable. Don't like the rear pouch? Remove it. Don't like where the phone zipper bag is up front? Switch it around. very nice. The field recorder section has velcro openings on all sides for easy access to all parts of the recorder. Cons: As a production sound engineer, you have 1 primary purpose: Don't ruin the sound. This thing has a bunch of zippers on it thank klank around on every slight movement. Not a problem, because I just tin snipped all the zippers and used my own paracord handles. I emailed them about it and they say they are making a new version with silent zippers :). The ONE part of this vest that is NOT velcro modular is the field recorder bag. Which means that if you change field recorders, this vest may not be useable or easily modifiable for a larger recorder. Not a huge deal, but kind of a bummer. If / when the time comes for me to replace my SD Mixpre 6-ii, I may have to have a new bag sewn in, or modify it with velcro / clips. For these reasons, I give it 4 stars instead of 5. But the quality is very high. Pricy, but worth the money.

When can I buy it?

When can I buy it?
Asked by: Je
You can try getting it directly from PortaBrace themselves but their customer service is horrible and it will probably take just as much time if not longer to process the order... There’s also Trew Audio but if B&H doesn’t have it then Trew Audio is probably out of stock as well... PortaBrace actually make their stuff in Vermont and for whatever reason this item is always out of stock for weeks... Good luck...

question

What size fits this porta brace?, for example my size for a serious shirt m, because I see that the person in the picture that shows the product is one size larger.
Asked by: MANUEL G.
I'm an asian M. My shoulder width is about 1'15, and this is a little bit big for me. However, with the velcro straps (there's a lot of flexibility), I'm still able to get a good fit.
