knapsackPetrol, a Vitec Group brand, introduces the Sound Knapsack. This new, professional knapsack transports sound gear and accessories comfortably and securely and keeps them organized, safe and accessible on the job.

The Knapsack‘s three cushioned compartments are designed for maximum storage and equipment protection. The generous main chamber comes complete with 8 removable pouches connected with hook and loop material. These are ideal for holding earphones, batteries, microphone, wireless systems, spare connectors, or tools in a special pouch. Windows of tough, transparent vinyl enable easy identification of contents. The knapsack‘s padded rear section is large enough to comfortably contain a laptop computer with up to a 17” screen. A front “eargonizer” section is ideal for stashing personal items such as keys, wallet, notebook, or pens, while keeping them close at hand.

Additional features include 4 auxiliary side pockets for additional storage, a central “net pocket” designed to hold a boom pole, contoured and padded shoulder straps for optimal carrying comfort, and Petrol‘s hallmark dual-directional zippers. The exterior is constructed of heavy-duty blue and black Cordura and ballistic nylon.

Suggested U.S. List Price for the new Petrol Sound Knapsack (#PSMK-N) is $219. For further information on other Petrol products, please go to or contact: Petrol, 709 Executive Blvd., Valley College, NY 10989, Phone: 845-268-0100, Fax: 845-268-0113, Email:
