If you click on the link it'll take you to the main product page and you'll see the product video that shows that.

saw the video, but it wasn't really clear what's possible for configurations in the bag. could one fit 3SRB/slot receivers in the main section with a 633? Or is the outside "underpants" section meant for the receivers? 

also whats' the price? couldn't find one.

Our beta testers have put 3 dual receivers (the Lectro SRB) in the main compartment with the recorder. You can also put receivers in the outside part if you like, or your battery distribution system, or camera hop tx, or ifb tx, or whatever you want, really. 
 

List price is $249.

From the Supreme ruler of Space, Time, and Dimension that's exceptionally modest...... :)

Very nice junior, not quite sure what the kickstand does? Like a motorbike for keeping it upright when stationary?

WOW! You still remember my name bag from that trade show from 2 years ago. Nice!

The kick stand serves two purposes, really.

If you are doing a sit down interview and you have the bag on a table you can deploy the kickstand to angle the bag up at you to make everything easier to see. Also, if you are just going to set the bag down in general you can deploy it to help keep the bag upright and not laying flat on the ground. So yes, kind of like a motorbike.

The feature of easy access to the Media door is key, big downside with Orca

I've finally figured out a workaround with media access on the Orca, Unplug everything on the output side, then lift the whole unit from the right side out of the bag, then it's easy access haha. still a pain in the ass and not a real solution.

I think the card position on the bottom is what sucks regardless of the the bag.

with nomad and maxx side load, it works great just unziping the sides " my original petrol mod design and my contribution to the sting ray design"

all my future bags must have that.

 

anyways. Great bag ktek......

I definitely like this idea for interviews. I've often put something under the bag to tilt it towards me, and it's never quite right.

I'm always scrounging on set for something to prop up the bag when sitting or on the cart. Great feature Dave!

Awesome!!!

I too would love to see more pictures of the bag loaded! The video was awesome, but like Michael, I think more photos would be great.

PS.. Will the kick stand be incorporated into the bigger bags as well?

Unrelated side comment for Dave.. For me, I feel like the current 664 bag is very wide. If it were up to me I'd relocate the side pockets back up front somehow.

Looks small. Nice and compact. Love the kickstand.  Might be time to switch from the petrol 607 bag.

Sharing the same feelings with Glen. The first bag makes me want to switch from my 607.

The kickstand is an awesome addition! 

It's great to have bags made by someone who has actually used them and understands what we need -- and why.

The kick stand is just on the Junior bag.

 

The reasons the main storage compartments are on the side of the are:
-Physics - The more weight you put further away from your body the more physical work your body has to do. Having the main storage compartment out front makes the bag more front heavy. This is not good. The idea with the Stingray bags is to keep as much weight up close to your body as possible.

-It is easier to get to the stuff in your storage pockets when they are on the side of the bag instead of in the front. 

-Having two main storage pockets on the sides actually adds the actual volume of storage you can have on the bag than if it was just up front. 

-If we put the storage compartment on the front of the bag then people would complain how big the bag is from front to back.
