The Porta Brace CTC-3/DC Director's Cut Traveler Camera Black Case with the new SLIP-NOT bottom adds an extra layer of protection against water, dirt and grime with an easy wipe-off surface. Reinforced layers of lightweight plastics and thick foam protect the camera from normal bumps and everyday handling. The viewfinder cavity has an extra measure of protection for the viewfinder. The long pocket under the viewfinder area holds tapes, batteries and even some battery belts. A new zipper facing has been added to keep the "self healing", heavy duty, YKK zippers from accidental damage (and if you leave the case out in the rain less water is likely to migrate into the main compartment), Mesh pockets for airline tickets, maps, cable, white balance cards or other flat items at the back and a seat belt loop to keep the camera securely in place during a sudden stop or seat belted in an empty seat during air travel. A suede leather shoulder strap and handgrips provide a good measure of comfort.
