    Porta Brace AR-MIXPRE3 reviews

    AR-MIXPRE3 - Field Audio Bag for MixPre-3 Recorder is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but quirky for my setup The bag is well made, the Mixpre3 fits nicely. The bottom of the bag opens up to allow battery swaps. I wish it would fit tighter when just using the 4AA sled. Plenty of room for other battery connectors. The power switch for the mixpre3 is on the side. This makes on/off a bit awkward with this bag. I don't know how that could be improved by portabrace, its more a sound devices ergonomic issue. My biggest gripe - Using two older Sony UWP receivers in the receiver pouches. The pouches are not deep enough and the receivers are constantly popping out. I am going to need to figure a better way to secure them. My guess is, with a different receiver (smaller maybe?) this wouldn't be an issue. I'm not changing my wireless just for the bag though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect, made some changes. The mixer fits quite well in the bag with extra room for the "L" series battery attachment with even two large batteries. The bag is well constructed and has a bunch of velcro enclosures to access all areas of the mixer without having to remove it from the bag. It's a tricky to get to the power switch on the side but not a big deal. I have only two issues with this bag. The first is the strap, works fine but you may want to consider a more comfortable one if you will be wearing this bag for a while. But like I said, it does the job. My second issue is with the pouches for the Sennheiser wireless receivers. I'm using the G3 wireless packs and when you insert them they feel like they will pop out quite easy, in fact they do. As the Porta Brace picture shows they sit high and have nothing to hold them in securely. I did a little update to the two front pouches so they would sit deeper in the pouch. I took some photos of this. Overall I think this is a worthy buy but be warned the wireless pouches need some work if you want to feel they are secure.
