New K-Tek Stingray Utility Hip Pack
K-Tek introduces the industry’s first hip pack designed by and for Sound Utility and Boom Operators. The Stingray Utility Hip Pack provides two spacious compartments, one with a built-in organiser, and offers places to hold equipment, accessories, tools, a mobile phone and what ever is needed to be close at hand and easy to find.
Comfortable to handle, with a unique soft corner curved design, this versatile carrier is equally useful on-set and off. Its adjustable wide fabric waistband and padded exterior lets it be worn in a number of ways: holster style with the stay-in-place resizable and removable thigh-strap, as a fanny-pack, or even cross shoulder.
Two sections offer wrap-around zippers for easy access. The main compartment measures 25 x 25 x 8cm while the front compartment is an ample 18 x 35cm. Each features soft orange lining with smartly detailed advantages like velour and mesh pockets, a view-through vinyl-backed mesh section, and elasticised fabric pouches. From the easy-grab zipper tabs to the elastic tool organiser, it is built to go to work.
An everyday piece of work-wear, the black KSUHP1 is large enough to fit a Sound Devices MixPro-3 or MixPre-6 for stealth recording. Small elastic pouches within are sized to fit Stingray KSLP1 Lav pouches, and a host of handy goods like cables, adapters, tape, pens, and cleaning kits. The sound department is just the start: the Utility Hip Pack can facilitate various roles in other on-set departments like lighting, grip, camera, make-up, still photography and script.
