    Porta Brace BP-3 reviews

    BP-3 Waist Belt Pack (Blue) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built Product It's a Porta Brace so it's well made, but with the name you do pay for it. I make my living filming on the road and this product makes my life easier. The build is strong and durable. The Belt keeps everything tight without constricting. The only flaw is the zippers jingle, but this was fixed with a couple Velcro cable straps. Bottom line if you need to keep your gear close by, and be able to wear it all day long this product will do the trick and you'll never need another. Truly well made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, pick this one! As usual, PortaBrace has done it right. Also included (but not listed in the description) is a blue strip light that takes AA batteries. It only comes on one of the pouches, but nevertheless it's very cool. Not only does it stay solid, but it also has a flash option. The light can be folded outside the pouch, acting as a warning light, should you be in a rough spot. It appears it's designed for Gold Mount bricks, but can be adjusted for V Mount. I've bought a lot of PortaBrace products, this is one of my favorites!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good if you need it On certain projects I'm off in the middle of nowhere shooting both video and stills. I use the bag to hold my DSLR, wireless mics, batteries, cards, lenses, and all sorts of other stuff. The bag is not padded, so there's no special protection for your gear -- you'll just have to be careful. Fully loaded, it can get heavy, of course. I found the belt adjustments a bit awkward because you might have to slip the strap with the velcro backing though the rings -- there's not as much easy adjustment as I'd like. I actually wish I didn't have to have something like this, but sometimes I just need to have a bunch of stuff with me, and this pack gives me lots of room in a pretty handy configuration.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bag, plenty of room I'd give it five stars if they figured out a better way to 'cinch' the waist belt. If you set it once and that fits forever you're fine. If you want to adjust it on the fly it's a little cumbersome. Bombproof construction and the light is really cool. You might need it for the big, deep pocket. Also flips out as a warning light if you are on a road or something. Expensive but I'll have it for twenty years. One potential problem. It holds a lot of gear. So you might be tempted to overload it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not your old belt pack! As a former news photographer, I know if you don't have it with you, you can't use it. So right after the camera,tripod,camera batteries, stick mic., Lav mic.,cables,spare tapes,batteries,wireless mic transmitter Leather-man, Gaffers tape,Skittles,pens,paper,labels,PDA,& flashlight. The next thing you need is a bag to put them in.When I saw the price of the PB-3 I was kinda shocked, I think I paid $100 for my last Porta Brace bag about 10 years ago. so I begrudgingly paid $ for this new one. ... I looked it over & found it was nothing like my old bag. The Zippers are heavier duty, The design looks the same but inside there are customized pockets for all your stuff, I was looking for an instruction sheet explaining all the pockets. there is even a LED light strip in the pocket for finding things at night & it flips out like a safety flasher, so you can be seen at night.or at least know that whoever ran you over meant to. so in closing... The belt pack is FANTASTIC! the only thing I can think of, that I would change or modify is the fact that the equipment pouches are not locked into position on the belt. Still, I am very happy with my purchase.
