K-Tek introduces the industry’s first hip pack designed by and for Sound Utility and Boom Operators. The Stingray Utility Hip Pack provides 2 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.
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 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.
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.
The Stingray Utility Hip Pack weighs just 14 ounces/390 grams. Priced at $123.50, it is available online or from K-Tek dealers.

Since its founding in 1996 by Manfred N Klemme, K-Tek has supported the audio world with innovative tools to make the sound engineer and boom operator’s jobs a bit smoother. With a passion for audio, Manfred’s first mission was to design and manufacture a line of U.S. made boom poles that were lightweight, strong and so audio friendly that folks took notice. Mission accomplished: in 1999 K-Tek won a Technical Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the Klassic Boom Pole. Since then, K-Tek has earned many other awards and the reputation of making elegantly designed and beautifully constructed, audio-centric products including: Klassic & Avalon graphite and aluminum boom poles, shock mounts, Shark Antenna mount and Fuzzy & Topper windscreens. K-Tek’s growing Stingray line includes, Sound mixer bags, Waist Belt, a back-saving Audio Harness, plus accessory bags and pouches and bag accessories. Visit: www.ktekpro.com.
