The Tripod Shell Pack is a padded case with an armored interior shell and off-road inline skate wheels. It's very rugged and can be used for everyday field work or extensive travel and shipping. It is a real alternative to heavy, unforgiving freighter cases. The case gives a distinct advantage over traditional cases by providing lightweight durability, secure padded protection, and convenient internal and external pockets. Interior tie down straps and padding provide secure protection for tripods and accessories. The Tripod Shellpack can be carried as a backpack or by a comfortable padded VT maple handle. The backpack shoulder straps fold away in a zippered compartment and the handle is completely covered for "snag-free" shipping.
