The Cotton Carrier Vest System is a unique chest harness system that supports 1 or 2 cameras eliminating the neck strain usually associated with shooting long jobs such as weddings, sports, public relations and photojournalism. The system is designed for the photographer who carries a DSLR with battery grip. The system comes complete with a camera tether that securely supports your camera and two hubs - one that tilts 15°s and the other that hangs straight. Use the one that suits your shooting style. The hub fits neatly into the 1/4 -20 tripod slot on your camera and then slips into the Lexan receptacle in the front of your vest. For additional stability, the built-in lens Stabilization Strap adds another measure of balance and support by holding the lens firmly against your body, preventing "swing".
First, use the buckles and touch fasteners on the vest to secure it around your body. Both the height and chest harness are fully adjustable. The camera tether then attaches to the vest by the use of a D-Ring. The unit's Split Ring attaches to the camera's strap lug and then to the other end of the tether. The entire unit is inter-connected and provides you with a comfortable and stable way to comfortably walk around while having your camera at the ready to shoot. You can also attach the harness as a standalone system when you attach it to, for example, your backpack strap. Just wrap the touch fastener around the strap and you're set to go. The system is backed by Cotton Carrier's limited lifetime warranty against defects.
The Side Holster from Cotton Carrier allows you to carry a second camera holster-style, leaving you hands-free for other activities like using your phone or texting until you are ready to shoot. The holster attaches to any belt, bag strap or the original Cotton Carrier Camera Vest. With the Cotton Carrier locking system, your camera is always secured and at the ready.
The Side Holster is an affordable upgrade to a traditional neck strap since its design helps eliminate all neck and shoulder pain while also preventing your camera from swinging about freely. It is designed for cameras that are not pro series or have a battery grip attached. You simply Insert your camera into the Side Holster at a 45 degree angle so that when it's in place and hanging, it is locked in securely. The included Safety Tether Cord prevents your camera from accidentally falling when it's removed from the Side Holster.
