It features two spacious compartments, one with a built-in organizer, 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.

The two sections offer wrap-around zippers for easy access. The main compartment measures 10” x 10” x 3”/ 25cm x 25 cm x 8 cm while the front compartment is an ample 7”x8.5”/18 cm x 35 cm.  Each features soft orange lining with smartly detailed advantages like velour and mesh pockets, a view-through vinyl-backed mesh section, and elasticized fabric pouches. From the easy-grab zipper tabs to the elastic tool organizer, it is built to go to work.

Wearable in a number of ways

In fact, this everyday piece of work-wear 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.

The Stingray Utility Hip Pack is so versatile, in fact, that you’ll not want to leave it behind, and you’ll end using it off-set in your personal life. Comfortable to handle, with a unique soft corner curved design, 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.

The Stingray Utility Hip Pack weighs just 14 ounces/390 grams. Priced at $123.50, it is available online or from K-Tek dealers.
