New Toys: D'Addario Backline Gear Transport Pack Solo

For the single musician or audio engineer, the Backline Gear Transport Pack Solo is two-thirds the size of the original that many players found too large for their needs. Like the original, it is a purpose-designed backpack that organizes and holds all the cables, clips, adapters—even mics for use on a live stage or in the recording studio. Even if just used as a travelling backpack for a quick overnight trip, the attractive Backline Gear Transport Pack Solo is very handy with all its many zippered pockets, water bottle holder and resizable internal spaces. 

A study in gear organization and also perfect for live sound engineers, the Backline Solo is not big at all but sleek and streamlined; it has six specialized compartments for stowing and protecting a lap top computer with its cables, or any expensive and larger electronics (tablets, screens, mouses). I liked that the inside is covered in Velcro™ so you can freely make any compartment much bigger or smaller; or even completely remove one the partitions for carrying odd-shape gear or just have more room. 

The D’Addario Backline Gear Transport Pack Solo is made from heavy-duty, nylon material with water-resistant zippers, and has comfort-padded contact points (where the back of the pack touches your back); it will stand up freely even when completely empty. 

D’Addario Backline Gear Transport Pack Solo sells for $169.99 MAP and is great for storing musical instrument accessories, stomp pedals, and travel accoutrement between gigs.
