    Porta Brace CS-DV4/DC reviews

    CS-DV4/DC Director's Cut Mini-DV Camcorder Case is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bag Worth every penny. I'm using this with a mid size camera setup, with base plate and rails and it fits nicely. It is so well made, nicely crafted, already Im getting comments and questions, hey nice bag, where'd you get it?. Not that you buy it because it looks good, but it does. Porta Brace has outstanding products, and from what I can gather they really value the people that work for them, and those people seem to take pride in their work, as well they should.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent craftmanship & deluxe looks Wondering if the CS-DV4 would look as good as it is pictured in the latest Porta Brace catalogue, I couldn't wait to receive mine from BHP&V. The product offers exactly what the name stands for: excellent build quality and A-class protection for your gear, all of the zips, belts and pouches have a pretty indestructible appearance / feel. Now, all of these features can be found with the regular PB cases, why should anyone choose the Director's Cut edition? I did it because I wanted something different and something more stylish to transport my JVC HM100. In other words, trs chic. Inside the case there's a cradle which, thanks to velcro, can be moved inside the bag and adjusted for perfect fit for your camcorder. The inside is extremely well padded. Along with the case came a small utility pouch and a white balance card, and my Macbook Pro 13 fits in the outer pocket for on-site editing, what more can you ask for? Here comes the 5-star rating, well done, Porta Brace

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Case Love the directors cut case, same great construction as all the other products! But has a little more style! Do wish it had the interior long zip pocket as my older case, but plenty of other pockets for all the gear. Thank you Porta Brace for great products and made in the USA!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice + Shoulder Padding A++ I am carrying a ton of things in the bag but it feels weightless because of the nice padding for the shoulder strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy AND Professional This is by far the nicest Portabrace item I own and I own several. I can't recommend this enough.
