Extreme Weather Bag Nearly Complete

NEWINGTON, VA, 9 September 2010 — I stopped by the offices of Communications Engineering, Inc. (CEI) last week to check on the Bill Gentile Extreme Weather Bag that I’m designing in conjunction with CEI engineers and executives.

In the picture above, CEI Executive Vice President John Wesley Nash (R) looks on as I test the bag that houses the Sony NX-CAM, the centerpiece of our Backpack Journalism System. I’ve been working for months now with CEI to design the System and the Extreme Weather Bag and prepare them for market.

Both items are valuable tools for backpack journalists, or video journalists, especially those working in challenging, inhospitable terrain.
