    I took my Canon 20D with a Sigma 18-200 zoom cross country skiing and snow shoeing in Colorado. The Op/Tech harness kept the camera accessable and steady right in front of me. Coupled with a Zing Large Zoom SLR Reversible Camera Cover with waist strap the camera and lens were covered, protected from moisture and snow, and ready to shoot in about 5 seconds. I've also used this harness biking and hiking. With the harness alone there is some camera bounce, but adding the Zing cover and waist strap solves that problem nicey.

    I use this strap for a Canon SlR and heavy lens when I'm walking around all day. Once it's adjusted properly you can move the camera easily along the front straps to shoot, or quickly remove the camera entirely from the strap. The length adjustment sliders have to be in the right place otherwise you will sit back and have them press into your back.

        Solves the problem of carrying around a medium large set of binoculars with out having them banging around your chest. Instantly available. The elastic bands work exactly as advertised.

          Comments about OP/TECH USA Bino/Cam Harness (Elastic Version):

          I use my camera mostly when hiking and I needed a strap to use on the steeper, more rugged terrain. Forget about the strap that came with the camera. The Bino/Cam Harness distributes the weight evenly, which in this case is about two pounds. It sits right in front of your chest, so when your ready to shoot, it's right there. Get the elastic version to give you even more flexebility.

              This product works, you look like a complete geek wearing it but saves the trouble hand holding the pair of binoculars where ever you go and it's easily adjustable for all types of bodies and shapes.

              As some other users have complained, if you're a female you may want to ensure it fits for your body type before purchasing it--B&H has a great return policy so worst case scenario you can always ship it back and have your money refunded.

              Camera Harness

              from Coronado, CA

              Comments about OP/TECH USA Bino/Cam Harness (Elastic Version):

              I'm female, almost 70 years old. Over the years, my DSLR kept getting heavier and heavier and I was looking for something that wouldn't tug on my neck or bounce as I walked. I travel lots and this was perfect for climbing in and out of dinghies, walking in the Amazon Rain Forest and climbing Machu Picchu. It worked great. I got the elastic kind and it makes bringing the camera up to eye level easy. I had no trouble attaching the strap to my camera.

                The harness held the Binos in the center of my body which was great for the ease of use of the Binos but forced my camera off to one side. This was still better than having two items on neck straps though.

                Best binocular harnesses have four slots for the straps and are easier to adjust. This one only has three.

                  I have used this harness for bird watching so far and love it! Not only does the harness effortlessly support the weight of the binoculars, it also helps keep the binoculars steady when in use. The tension from the straps (which at first I thought would be problematic) actually helped me hold the binoculars steadier than free handling!The quick link clasps also work very well.I plan to use this set up for my camera as well.

                        My heavy Nikon binoculars and I just couldn't quite get comfortable with this harness. I was going to use it for an all day birding trip but fell back on the basic strap since I couldn't get the harness to fit the way I wanted. The quality is excellent and the loop attachment works well. I don't know if I just haven't played with the harness enough or possibly it is a better fit on men or larger framed women. I'll keep trying!

                        I already own an op/tech camera strap and a camera wrist strap. I also was using a harness from another manufacturer for my camera a Pentax k-5 for number of years. When my wife expressed an interest in using it I looked for another one and found that the op/tech system also made one. It used the same connectors so tha I was easily able to switch amount each of them. A major convienience.
                        The only thing that I don't like about it is that it is very stiff. Perhaps the non elastic one is less stiff?

                              I bought this to carry my binoculars which it does very well.

                                I tried this harnes with Canon T3i with both 18-55 mm and 55-250mm lenses. It is much more comfortable than Canon's original neck strap.

                                    I have MS and get muscle pain when carrying even a camera. I have tried many harnesses and this simple low cost one is by far the best. I like how it absorbs shock when walking.

                                      the only negative to this harness is the straps that attach to the binoculars are a little too thick to attach to the binocs easily, other than that this is a top notch product.

                                        I wasn't sure whether to go for the elastic or non-elastic version. In the end I went with the elastic and am quite satisfied with it. It keeps the binoculars right where I want them and takes the strain off my neck. I've been using them for over a month now, birding once or twice a week, and have no complaints.
