Petrol markets inflatable airline bag for cameras

Petrol has introduced the Inflatable Airline Bag, a new carry case created specifically for boarding a plane with a full-size broadcast camera.

This duffle-style bag is 13.8in x 9.4in x 5.7in. It’s housed in a zippered nylon pouch for transportation through airline security and boarding.

The bag is designed to safeguard a camera against accidental damage from other cargo or jostling during a flight. There’s no longer need to pad and cover equipment with airline blankets or extra pillows. The top of the bag unzips and opens wide to offer enough room for a full-size broadcast camera without disturbing the viewfinder and lens.

An exterior side pocket holds a coiled tube that connects to an exterior inflation valve. The user simply blows into the tube to fill the bag’s internal inflation system. Inside, the contents are surrounded by soft fabric backed by a firm, protective cushion of air. The inflation system is removable and can be replaced.

Once inflated, the bag can be safely stored in the airplane’s overhead compartment, or inside a hard case or standard camera bag. The exterior is constructed of water-resistant blue Cordura and heavy-duty black ballistic nylon.
