    Porta Brace CAR-2 reviews

    CAR-2 Cargo Case (Blue) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect case for my needs! I have finally found the right case to fit my 3 Panasonic GH3s with lens attached. It also fits my wireless microphones receivers and transmitters in one of the side pockets and my 4 Zoom H1s with headphones in the other side pocket. The front zippered pouch houses my on-camera LED light in its case. It's compact, sturdy and just the right size and weight for what I needed. I still have 3 other Portabrace case from other format cameras over the years and they are all still in excellent condition. If you are looking for an inexpensive just-right case for your video gear you can't go wrong with this case. Love it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really a Quality Product I am an amateur occasional videographer. Recently bought a 2nd Cannon XHA1. I searched ... for a soft bag for this camera. ... I decided to go to B&H to buy a brand new one. This is my first Porta Brace bag. Before this I have never heard of Porta Brace. The bag arrived. I was immediately impressed by the construction of this bag, strong fabrics, thick and sturdy padding. The pockets have plenty room for me to carry all my necessary accesories. I feel secured to carry my camera in it. The maker of the bag signed a white tab in one of the pocket with the birthday (I assume) of this bag, .... What a persoanl touch. I almost felt like I want to drive up to the manufacturing plant and personally shake the hands of the lady who made my bag.I always believe you get what you pay for. Porta Brace make bags that I wouldn't mind pay for it again and again. And I did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bag, Nice Alt Color Not ever having owned my own personal Porta Brace case, I ended up choosing this one. I really was looking for something on the smaller side. It was between this and the Car-1. I'm glad I went with this size instead as the added length is just enough for my wireless sound gear. I also think the orange brown + black looks nicer than the blue. You want to look stylish in front of clients.What really shines about the Porta Brace brand for me, is the experience and thought that goes into the cases. All of the pockets upon pockets are designed for practical use and its easy to rearrange your gear for each shoot. I was hesitant about the snake rolling foam wall that it comes with because I'm used to the normal flat walls that come with pelican cases. The snake works really well actually and can be folded to make precise corners and compartments. On the Con Side, it is a little bulky when fully loaded. But that's more an effect of me loading every pocket. You can tell it will swivel a lot around you if you are rushing around with the bag. But once it's on the ground it's a pleasure to have all of your gear readily available.Perfect bag for standard video work. Good for keeping in car, not so much airplane compartments, it's a tad big for that even if it might be legal size. It was worth every dollar it costs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design, great quality, great look I use this bag for carrying two DSLRs & multiple lenses and the storages space is fantastic and also allows great access from the top as the hard hull allows the bag to stay in shape as I go through my kit with one hand. I also get to store my 13 laptop in front pocket. Ideal!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good case... bad zippers I use the car-2 case as a laptop +dSLR camera bag on jobs all over the world. Very happy with the case itself and the strap is amazing. Purchased in 2009, one of the main zippers has already broke. They want $100 to fix it. Cheap plastic zippers all around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product The CAR-2 Cargo Case protects my Sony HD video camera and accessories on a daily basis. It is light weight, durable, and allows for customization of internal compartments. Highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best equipment bag for the money Like the last poster, I was introduced to Portabrace in film school and haven't looked back since. I shoot a lot of corporate/industrial work and often have to fly all over the country. So I wanted a bag/case that would fit all or most my gear, protect it, and still be something I could bring on the plane as carry-on luggage and this bag does it all. What I keep in it: Panasonic AF100, 4 different lenses with a diameter of 72mm each with their own padded slots (had to get the extra boards/pads), two wireless lav kits, one ME66, shock mount, 2 extra can batteries, charger/ac kit, 3 25ft XLR cables, lens cleaning kit, Opteka shoulder mount, cam remote, SDHC/XC card reader and card holder and a few misc cables for monitering. Thats a lot of stuff in one bag. Everything is secure and nothing is just tossed in because ...there's that much room. Only drawback is ... you'll probably need the extra inserts and some kind of memory card holder.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Produce Good Except for One Problem Used for new Panasonic Professional Camera. Fits as described and seems well built - except, there is a press badge slot on the front than can hold ID, calling card, press badge etc but they sewed it shut on all four sides - no access to insert a card - have contacted Porta Brace about this - resolution still pending.
