    Porta Brace RB-4 reviews

    RB-4 Lightweight Run Bag (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit Electric Sun is a lighting and grip rental house. We have had for years this bag in one size smaller and in blue. They have lasted for decades, but then it came time to replace them. So we bought this larger size in black. They are the perfect fit. We use them as Grip Bags that go out with our 1-Ton and smaller packages. The bag is very well constructed, but lightweight. We put tools, mafers, blackwrap, spring clamps, C Heads and arms, etc in there and it works great for us.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Porta brace quality Just what I expected and that is the beauty of Porta Brace gear. I have been using Porta Brace bags since the early 80's (yep). I bought this as a run bag to carry my Gitzo sticks with Sachtler head as well as Lowell light heads and stands. I wanted to be able to carry a full broadcast standard rig without scrimping, but be able to carry it all without feeling clumsy. Now with my older Porta Brace camera bag on my right and my new run bag on my left I can do it. My gear just barely fits. I would be happier if t had a couple more inches of room in length and I know they make a bigger one but I would not want too much bigger or it would begin to get clumsy. It is a tough run bag. Has two large outside expandable pockets that are pretty roomy so it can carry more than you may want to actually lift. Zippers, closures all built to last - nothing new there. One surprise was a small additional bonus piece about a foot long by 6 inches stuck inside a pocket that can organize smaller items that could get broken or would be hard to locate in the roomy bag. It could hold personal items, pens, tapes, pad to write on, tools, etc. A bargain at this price - I have seen Porta Brace gear priced up into the stratosphere. By the way, I have never worn out a portabrace bag. When I sold the equipment, the Porta Brace bag always went with it in good shape as a bonus since much of the Porta Brace stuff is fitted to specific gear (monitors, cameras, etc).@

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and well built I had been putting off getting a professional runbag for years. I'm a freelancer and I can't tell you the difference it has made in client confidence and my own! Worth every penny. There's a reason these aren't available on the used market!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic I've worked places who still have PortaBrace bags that they've used since the 80s. Might as well pay for a bag that will last forever. I got this bag to hold my audio gear. It even fits a shorter boom pole with the mic attached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indestructible bag I'm very happy with this bag, very well made and at a good price, although I can't make two booms/windshields fit inside, but it's perfect for cables and all sorts of gear during production.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality large run bag Purchased this to hold a light kit, power cords, audio gear, small tripod, etc. Everything fits with lots of pockets on the outside to hold last minute items.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag Light weight and lots of room for all the miscellanies stuff needed on a shoot. still getting used to the new no-slip bottom.
