Recently, Zoom came out with a new concept recorder with a very unique shape, called the Zoom F6. This recorder packs a major punch for camera operators and sound mixers alike, but introduces many challenges to bag manufacturers that need to find a way to protect it! K-Tek has stepped up and created the Stingray Zoom F6 Bag which encompasses the recorder well, while allowing for its ergonomics to shine.
Full Disclosure: K-Tek is one of our sponsors who have given us a head start when we needed it most, allowing us to be their commercial production facility. They gave us a few of the Stingray Zoom F6 Bags in order to film their commercial and to give an honest review. I’ve agreed to give an honest review and our relationship has no effect on this review.

What’s In The Box?
Stingray Zoom F6 Bag with integrated Waistbelt and Kickstand
The Stingray Bag for the Zoom F6 Mixer/Recorder allows you to carry it over the shoulder or wear it around the body, with the expandable, padded Waist Belt/Shoulder Strap made of breathable fabric. Multilayer walls and an internal frame provide protection while zippers encircle each side to reveal inputs, outputs, and controls. The bottom opens wide and a buckle snaps it closed. An adjustable kickstand props it upright for easy access and comfortable viewing. For holding extras check out the 6 MOLLE straps.
The dual zippers that encircle each side panel fully reveal inputs, outputs and controls. The bottom flap opens wide to access the internal battery packs on the bottom of the F6. Then there’s the large buckle that safely snaps the bottom closed.
K-Tek also made it to suit whichever style you choose to work. Whether it is carried over the shoulder or worn around the body, the integral Waist Belt/Shoulder Strap is adjustable for various sizes. Made of breathable material and padded for comfort, it also offers 2 MOLLE rigging points to hold your additional accessories.
For convenient tabletop operation, a built-in adjustable kickstand enables easy control interface and comfortable viewing whether you choose to sit down or standup.
The Stingray F6 Bag has an integrated frame which means more stability and protection. The multi-layer walls offer exterior durability and the soft orange high-contrast interior makes offers extra padding and makes it easy to visually separate the bag from the recorder. Inside, extra wide Velcro straps solidly hold the F6 for solid support, so you can add-on wireless receivers or other Stingray Bags like the popular carryall Gizmo bags.
