I haven't had a chance to actually use it yet. Looks sturdy and holds my camera securely. Will update this when I have it out and about.

Excellent way to carry camera in field

By

from Phila, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Really like this vest for carrying my camera when out in the field taking shots. Very comfortable and fully adjustable. The best and unforgotten feature is the universal adapter that incorporates an arca swiss plate for mounting to my tripod. Absolutely no other strap/carry rig provides such an adapter. I don't know how other strap makers could have missed this one!

Questions about this item:

tom M  Can You adapt a Manfrontte Quick Release plate and Adapter to this vest.My Tripod and Monopole use Manfrotte plates???
MARVIN S  I am not sure. The vest (which is great) comes with a plate to put under the attachment disk that has a tripod mount on it. In theory you could attach your quick release plate to that. I think there is enough clearance both vertical and horizontal. To be sure, you might want to contact the Cotton Carrier manufacturer directly.
PATRICIA K  I'd be using a Canon 7D and Tamron 150-600mm lens with the tripod mount attached to the lens. Would it fit the vest that way and not push into me?
RICHARD G  Patricia K; The Lens would not push into you as the lens hangs downward. I don't think that it will work with the tripod mount on the camera, as there is a special mount that mounts on the camera that attaches the camera to the vest as you carry the camera. I used my vest for 16 days straight in Alaska while hiking. You can also ware the vest on the plane and thru customs with no trouble and is not uncomfortable. I found a small water proof bag to clip on the side to carry more batteries and memory chips.I took over 6000 pictures on the trip and could not have done it as smoothly with out the vest.
Shopper  does harness have locking and quick release system and if so, describe how it works?
MIGUEL N  The Cotton carrier vest comes with a knob that attaches to the bottom of the camera. This slides into a groove on a metal plate in front of the vest. Locks when inserted and turned ~ 45 degrees. I saw another reviewer's comment about adding a Jobu clamp QRR-1 to the knob. This allows Acra style quick release plate on the bottom of the camera instead of the knob on the camera. You'll also need to purchase an Acra style plate - I used the Smith Victor plate for the BH2 ball head. The Jobu QRR-1 comes with screw that works to thread to the cotton carrier knob, but you'll need to grind this down a bit to make it flush. I also 5-minute epoxy'd the head of the screw to keep it from turning and getting loose. The advantage to this - now I can transfer camera to tripod ball head without worring about the cumbersome knob.
