Product Details

This harness is ideal for photographers who need go light and move fast when covering events. It helps lessen the load when worn with an S&F belt.

  • Lightweight, supportive and flexible design relieves a heavy load when worn with an S&F belt
  • Lapel strap keepers secure camera strap to harness at shoulders via sturdy snaps
  • Sternum strap (with built-in safety whistle) adjusts for a comfortable, snug fit
  • Detachable handle cup and restraint straps convert harness to a “backpack,” allowing photographer to carry an additional Lowepro shoulder bag (such as Magnum™ AW, sold separately)
  • SlipLock™ attachment loops allow attachment of compatible S&F™ or other SlipLock™ products
  • Fully integrates with S&F™ Utility Laptop Backpack 100 AW (sold separately)

 

 

Note: Must be worn with the S&F™ Light Utility Belt or S&F™ Deluxe Technical Belt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fills the requirement to distribute camera weight, but needs some minor re-work The principle of a harness system and utility belt for equipment is an extremely viable one, especially for the photographer whom must keep a variety of bodies and lenses at the ready. Two primary considerations for the system. (1) it must effectively distribute the weight of the bodies and lenses; (2) it must secure them in a manner that allows them to be accessed and positioned for image capture with a minimum of effort. The LowePro system provides those considerations. Two minor modifications could be considered: (1) the positioning of the straps that go over the shoulders and join at neck level could be widened an inch or two. As they are they tend to ride to high up on the back of the neck even when tightened to the light utility belt attachment points; (2) the camera strap retainer snaps could be larger. They only adequately restrain 1"wide straps. Most pro cameras straps are somewhat wider and bind in the retainers. Either that or provide new camera straps of a more modest width to fit the retainers. When bodies/lenses are hung on the system the narrow retainers do not allow the bodies to be swung around into shooting position easily. September 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent alternative to the backpack. I recently wrote a review on the Lowepro Pro Roller X200 where I spoke of the S&F system as my preferred method of carrying my equipment once I arrive at an assignment. The Lowepro Street and Field technical belt with harness has been a life saver for me. I recently switched from using a back pack to the belt system. I have the 100 and 200 lens exchange bags, the 100 AW utility pouch and a water bottle holder on mine. This has been a great switch for me in that it saves my aging back. I use the Pro Roller X200 to carry all my necessary gear to my assignment then take what I need out of that bag and put it in the S&F system to carry it around for my assignment. It is surprising just how much junk you can carry in a few pouches. The weight is evenly distributed and very comfortable. I'm a retired crime scene guy. This system is reminiscent of my gun belt from days gone by. Not a burden at all. Another nice thing about it is if you are shooting in an area, like the beach, you don't have to put your bag down in the sand to change lenses or get out more gear. The only reason I gave the "Fits my gear" category a 4 instead of 5 is because I have a Really Right Stuff plate on my 70-200 f2.8 lens that makes it a little tight in the large lens exchange case. A bit of a struggle if you're in a hurry. This is a great alternative to a shoulder bag and/or backpack. I strongly recommend it if you need to reduce your load but still carry a fair amount of gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product Lousy instructions This is a very good product. It works very well to shed the load from the light weight utility belt and the accessory pouches. The "instructions" are hopeless. Only after a discussion with product support was the true value of this product realized. It has the potential of turning a cumbersome shoot into a great adventure. It just needs better instructions on its use. October 26, 2013

I just purchased the S&F technical harness and light tech belt. However, I cannot find any instructions or video for how to properly connect the two together and use them.

Answer: 
We don't have a "how to" video at the moment, but here are a couple of instructional points:

Attaching webbing on harness to tri-glide buckle on belt:

1. Take vertical webbing at back of harness and thread through tri-glide buckle on belt; leave a bit loose for later adjustments

2. Take Slik Clip® at end of harness shoulder strap and attach to any internal vertical loop between belt padding

3. Adjust on body via 7 adjustment points: waist (1), shoulder straps (2), stabilizing straps (2), sternum strap (1), vertical webbing/buckle at back (1)

Answer: 
To begin, remove any straps from the harness that can be taken off. Those are for camera support and adding another small bag to the back of the harness in backpack fashion up near the top (if desired, I don't use them). The two padded front straps on the harness have plastic buckles at the end. These buckles get attached to the two nylon loops that are on the front of the belt where the padded part meets the webbing. The single, wide nylon strap that goes down the back gets looped through the large buckle on the back of the belt.

Hope this helps. It's a great system.
