Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1111583A1] The case (14) is made of a flexible material (11) and fitted with detachable shoulder straps (12). A transparent pocket (15) with a flap (16) for closing is either sewn to the case (14) itself or to one of the shoulder straps (12). The pocket (15) facilitates the transport of a mobile phone, a small cassette recorder, or a similar device. There could also be a second holding facility (30) for a small microphone (23). A layeer of a specific foil (24) protects the mobile phone from interference from other electronic equipment used on stage. Padded areas (25) offer shock and vibration protection.
