The black/blue Backpack - Hard Case Interior System from Porta Brace just might be your ultimate shipping solution. This combination kit includes a hard shelled exterior shipping case with a rigid framed backpack inside. When you arrive at your destination, just unpack the backpack and carry it as either a shoulder bag using the included shoulder strap or as a standard backpack using the included comfortable harness system. There is an additional chest strap that will help stabilize the pack while walking.
The backpack itself comes with a myriad of storage features including a laptop pouch as well as smaller pouches and stuff sacks for various support equipment. The laptop pouch can be carried on its own backpack style while the rest of the case is shipped. Or, when you arrive at your destination, just attach the laptop pouch to the rest of the pack and your hands-free to walk. The interior of the pack is customizable using the included dividers so your gear will always have its own nest in any configuration you choose. This will enable you to store your gear in shooting position with lens attached - ready to go.
The hard shell exterior is made to take a beating and is built to Porta Brace's usual high-standards. It's carried by its rigid carry handle or attach it to your luggage cart for easy navigation through airports and parking lots. The sturdy latches keep it shut until you snap them open to extract your backpack.
As an added feature, the setup comes with Porta Brace's Interior Illumination System that will help you locate small gear when you open the pack in low light. For a complete traveling system, this combination is hard to beat. It permits you to ship or carry your gear as you see fit as well as helping you organize or just safely store your gear while you wait for your next assignment.
