    Porta Brace CAR-3 reviews

    CAR-3 Cargo Case (Black) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Bought this in a pinch. Changed my mind last minute from the CineBags Skinny Jimmy. Will never look back. This thing held two DSLRs, 4 primes, 2 zooms (carried the 70-200 independently), batteries and chargers (2 sets), follow focus + gears, and some misc. other stuff - just in the main compartment! Side and front zipper pockets are extremely spacious. Only thing I don't understand about the bag is the insert dividers. They send 1 extra long divider and 3 short, skimpy ones. I created a S figure with the large divider, then used the small ones to create spaces specific to each lens. Worked out. Awesome bag!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Money worth spent Great bag, only had it for a couple of weeks but it is very durable and offers lots of space for camera and accesoirces. I only give 4 stars because I think it could have some more 'sub'-pockets for memory cards, batteries etc. It is a littlebit annoying if everything flies around in one big pocket department. My solution is to put batteries and wireless mics in a seperate pocket though which works out fine. Other than that it is money well spent, I had many other cheaper bags before but none of them have been as durable and well-made as this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GoodtogovideoProductions Use to carry my Sony AX2000 camcorder in.Lots of room for my camera and MUCH, MUCH more...A lot of roomy side pockets to put batteries, cables,mics, camera lights etc. Other bags were just too small to carry anything else but the camera and usually the camera just barely fit into those bags. This one has enough room that I havea wireless mic attachment on the camera and it still fits easily in the bag. And with any porta brace you know your getting a Quality product that will last for years!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Porta brace quality as expected Bought it as a audio run bag for smaller jobs, It fits what I need. Standard portabrace quality. An alternative to a hardcase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Case for Sony Z1 This is the best bag I ever had for my Z1. Besides the camera I can easily stow away everything that I need on a HDV shoot, including lavelier, Litepanel Micro, cables, tapes and all charging gear. The do-it-yourself compartments allow you to create your own order, It's a stylish bag if I compare it to Petrol or Tamrac. The top could be a bit stronger in construction but all in all it is very robust and well padded.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good case for DSLR filmmaking I picked up this bag to carry and store all my DSLR equipment. The padding and protection is great, and there's room for my camera, a few lenses, mic, sound recorder, small light panel, flash, and even a small tripod. It's not the largest bag they offer, but its enough for the gear I have, its easy to customize the interior, and I'll have no problem storing another DSLR in there too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-built, well-designed I purchased this bag to house a variety of cameras, accessories, and gear. I wanted something that could easily be adjusted to accommodate different combinations of equipment, and this certainly does the trick. I'm glad I got the largest of the three Cargo sizes, because I've already easily filled it out.It comes with two long and two short dividers, easily moved and adjusted with velcro. And the double pockets on each end of the bag provide more storage than you would expect. You can easily fit several filters, batteries, or rolls of gaff tape for easy access. I like having a lot of separated compartments to keep things organized.And, it's Porta Brace, so the build looks and feels great.The only thing I could have used is a velcro tie to keep a camera body tied down to the bottom. I'll probably purchase a separate one. For now, I usually keep bodies and lenses in cloth wraps inside, just in case they move around during transport.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why say more? Another WIN by Porta Brace... with all the portable multi track that is in todays market.. This big, strong case is a must have for any avid field engineer. Top Notch! Matt
