K-Tek, leading maker of quality products for sound recording professionals, announces the new K-Tek Stingray BackPack X.

With a 20-liter capacity, the bag is tailored for a one-person-band or traveling news reporter—to carry all their recording needs in the most comfortable, compact, and secure way. This workhorse offers ample storage space for a mixer bag, extra audio gear, laptop, and other supplies.

Stingray BackPack X maximizes utility and consolidation with an adjustable, integrated front-facing harness for a fully packed audio mixer bag. Conveniently built-in, it allows an operator to easily move the mixer bag from the storage pouch directly into the operating position, by snap-hooking it to the front of the pack.

The pack features three roomy zippered sections including a padded pocket for a 17” laptop, smaller mesh pockets, a fold-away boom cup holder, and multiple MOLLE straps for a range of gear and accessories. The Stingray Front Pouch (sold separately) easily attaches to the BackPack X’s MOLLE straps for increased storage space.

Made of heavy-duty black nylon, the Stingray BackPack X is strong, durable, and moisture resistant. It is offered with a choice of orange (KSBPX) or purple (KSBPXP) lining and detailing. A detachable raincover provides additional protection.

Stingray BackPack X systems are individually priced at $367.50 MSRP. Both are compatible with matching K-Tek Stingray Mixer Bags including Junior X Audio Mixer Recording bags (Small and Large) and MixPro. All are available for purchase from K-Tek authorized dealers worldwide. For more information contact https://ktekpro.com/
