    Porta Brace SS-2 reviews

    SS-2 Side Sling Pack (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Very comfortable, didn't take time to get used to. Has a great spot for my cell phone, and room for everything from pens to full scripts. I'm sure I can fit everything I need and more in here. Has two pockets the full length of the sling, 3 closing pockets, 3 slip pockets behind the closing pockets, 2 phone/wireless mic pockets with velcro closures for cords or antennas, probably 7-8 pen or flashlight-sized pockets, and a small zippered pocket inside the main zipper pocket. When hot weather hits I'll see if I regret the extra layer of black material, but this sling has already replaced my blue PortaBrace belt pack and I doubt I'll be switching back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another success by Porta Brace! I want to first say that I use the SS-2 nearly every night of the year as a freelance news photog, so I have become VERY familiar with this item and can give a fair review. It is truly an amazing piece of equipment. It is incredibly durable and can hold just about anything you need. I'm able to hold a Bescor battery in the large pocket for my camera light, which is the primary reason I bought this. I can put my police scanners either in the pocket on the strap or use the belt clips and stack them sideways on the strap. I've got some extra batteries, earplugs, pen and paper, tapes, flashlight, handcuffs and pepper spray all in this thing. I'm switching over to Porta Brace's Videographer Vest due to one reason. Running with this thing is cumbersome. If you're walking or standing it is very comfortable, but running chasing police down the street is not easy cause it flops around. There is an included waist strap that I've never tried that would probably help reduce the flopping around though. And furthermore, having it on (w/ 10 pounds of gear and not sitting down) for more than about 3 hours can cause some shoulder pain from the direct weight/pressure from the one-shoulder design or back stiffness, and I'm 23. But I'd say that's normal for anything like this. The padded shoulder pad is amazing for shoulder-mount cameras as it helps grip the camera from sliding off your shoulder and adds very comfortable padding. I bought the black one. Overall I recommend this product a full 10/10 and do not believe they could have done anything to make it any better. Buy it. You won't regret it. I'm incredibly picky and still love it. I've used this with a Canon XL-2 and Canon XH-A1s.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea ! I cant believe I waited so long to buy this product. I use this everyday. I didnt like the way the waist belt felt, and this fixed the problem. It has enough pockets for everything. I can even get a full Anton bauer battery in it with no problem. Buy this product. I bought the black one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SLING PACK Howdy Colleague. Being in the video biz for +25 years and always used Porta Brace products. I think my first unit was a Quick draw bag for my camcorder by 1992. Great products, also got in the past the Directors BAG that I still have. All zippers working perfect. Did also had the production belt with 2 pockets, great products from the Blue company. It was time to refresh my pockets and decided to go for the Sling Pack. Great product, plenty of space and very adaptable to any situation. Ample pockets, light weight and well padded. There are only 2 things I would of prefer for the price I paid. 1 a real classic blue like the old gear, this blue is much lighter and the strap although is good could have the leather style from the past. The bag does have a secret mini pocket where a side strap is hidden. This side strap is perfect for climbers or runners.The strap is rubber stuff and I think it will rip with time. Almost 5 stars! But I highly recommend this product. It's well made, good materials but could be better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable. Big difference between this and other less expensive bags. For the longest time I would be $ or less courier bags for eng use. They were always choking me with the all the equipment I would put in. This bag is so well balanced and comfortable. Feels very durable too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect. By far the best if not only bag for ENG cameramen. Perfect is every way except for one detail: the shoulder is non-slip rubber, which is great for non slipping, but bad for hot countries as it'll make you sweat more than needed.
    Date published: 2013-01-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very work friendly design. For a run-and-gun news photographer, this bag is great. It holds batteries, cables, media, and microphones. The only drawback is the zipper broke on my last one. But I loved the bag so much I bought another one.
