    This is a must have accessory for anyone who has a DSLR or binoculars. You barely feel the weight you are wearing compared to a standard neck strap. The camera/binos are held closely to your chest and don't flop around as you walk, but are available to use quickly. Just lift up, and they slide up the straps.

    If you get them adjusted just right, they also provide some support. You will have to pull against them slightly, and you wind up using your back and shoulders to help steady the camera/binos instead of just your arms.

    These seem to be easier to install than some other brands. I've read reviews of others talking about clips that wouldn't fit, having to use adapters, zip ties, key rings, etc. These have a quick release buckle with a loop of heavy string attached. The string is ALMOST too thick. They are quite difficult to slip through the attachment points on both my DSLR (Minolta 5D)and my Binos (Pentax PCF II WP), but a pair of needle nose pliers or a thinner string looped through make the job MUCH easier. Once you can get them started, they are easy to pull through, and you only have to do this once. From then on, the harness just attaches/detaches to/from the buckles. Once I got the buckles attached to mine, I was glad the string is so heavy. They seem to be ready to last a long time.

    I'm thinking about getting an extra pair of the buckles to attach to the normal neck strap when/if I ever want to use it. The harness does tend to get a little tangled up (not badly) when you are not wearing it. The regular strap might be easier to use for carrying everything around, like from the house to the car when you are carrying, but not wearing them. The extra buckles may be handy too for someone wanting to use the same harness with more than one camera, but cost almost as much as the whole thing with buckles. I just bought two.

    I am a short person with neck and shoulder problems so the harness idea for use with my binoculars with this strap works very well to relieve the stress. Once the harness is on the binoculars move up and down with ease.

    My issues are 1. with untangling and sorting out the straps to put the harness on, 2. strap adjustment is tricky with a 3 point harness, 3. and the straps do not shorten enough for my height with the 3 point harness.

    Perhaps the 4 point harnesses work better.

    Comments about OP/TECH USA Bino/Cam Harness Binocular or Camera Strap (Webbing Version):

    I get a sore neck if the camera strap is around it for too long so thought I'd try this harness. It does work but it doesn't take off as much pressure as I'd like. For me the straps sort of come close to the neck anyway so I still have a bit of pressure there but it is definitely worth buying to redistribute the weight a bit.

    Many people mentioned that it's difficult to put on, it's basically a jumble of chord before you figure it out but it doesn't take that long to figure out or un-twist it. It could be made to be a little more comfortable (padding).

    Comments about OP/TECH USA Bino/Cam Harness Binocular or Camera Strap (Webbing Version):

    This harness probably works fine for most cameras and binoculars but the loops which create the attachment to the camera/binocular are too short to allow the use of the eyepiece rain guards that came with my Canon 12x36 and Swarovski 7x42 binoculars. In both cases the rain and mist guards are intended to be attached to one side of the neck strap and flop out of the way when you raise the binoculars to your eyes. Unlike the neckstraps that came with these binoculars, this harness provides no place to attach the rain guards.

      I purchased the webbed version of the Bino/Cam harness to use with my Nikon D90. I like the attachment of strap to camera, and I look forward to getting out and using it. I had borrowed one from a friend not long ago and it was very comfortable to use. Couldn't give it 5 stars...yet!

          This binocular harness by Op/Tech USA is exactly what I was looking for. Something affordable and reliable without all the bells and whistles. What an improvement from the aggrevating neck pains of a normal binocular strap! This harness fits nicely over my winter coat and can easily be adjusted to fit a friend in need. Solid stuff.

            I purchased this harness to replace an elastic one that had stretched out of shape. I like the webbing version since it will hold it's shape. The only thing I would have liked better is having clips to attach it to my camera which would allow me to change to a single strap quickly when not out in the field.

            This modestly priced harness keeps your camera at the ready in front of you.
            There is no uncontrolled swinging as occurs with conventional camera straps.
            It can be a bit difficult to orient the straps properly for use but the effort is well worthit!

                  The Bino/Cam Harness keeps binoculars very handy while securing them from swinging wildly during sudden movements. From their normal suspended position, your binoculars can easily be raised to eye level and and brought to any viewing angle. The harness is a simple but most functional design, and it is well worth the cost.

                      This harness takes all the weight of the camera off my neck and distributes it nicely on my shoulders. I had stopped using my "good" camera because the weight on my neck caused pain and headaches after a relatively short period of time. Wonderful invention.

                            This harness is much more comfortable than a neck strap, and works as described. I tried using it while bike riding but found the camera still hangs too low for that. Just for hiking or walking around I'll take this over a neck strap any day. Also, the quick-release buckles are great, you can easily remove and re-attach the camera without taking off the harness. At this price, you can't go wrong.

                              amazingly simple and effective. Not much in the materials, but the simplicity of the design is worth the price

                              My neck was killing me after those day long adventures with my Canon 5D Mk2 with a 70-200 2.8L lens. This harness offers a great deal of relief. I had an elastic version but the weight of the camera pulled down on my gear so it hung pretty low. Acts like a stabilizer when not using a tripod. Takes a bit of figuring out how it goes on but once you got it,,, what a difference!

                              I used this at a soccer game and on a hike. It worked great for me. I have a vertical grip on my XTI and I hooked one strap to the top left of the camera and the other strap to the vertical grip on the right. This made it easier to shoot both vertical and horizontal. I like the camera being steady and not flopping around as I walk. The straps sometimes get tangled up when not in use.

                              Simple construction that works. I use it for my digital SLR camera, it holds the camera right in front of you. I can easily wear it under my coat in rainy days and with minimum effort take pictures.

                              Bought this for a trip to Colorado and used it to protect my Canon 7D and a 1#plus lens while hiking up the mountain trails and riding ski lifts. This is the first time I've used a harness and this seems like a very inexpensive solution for the problem.
