              Works great as a run bag for news shooting. Holds plenty of gear and essentials yet still provides comfort and manageability. I wish it was cheaper but high prices are synonymous with the Porta Brace brand.

              Comments about Porta Brace SS-2 Side Sling Pack (Black):

              I want to first say that I use the SS-2 nearly every night of the year as a freelance news photog, so I have become VERY familiar with this item and can give a fair review. It is truly an amazing piece of equipment. It is incredibly durable and can hold just about anything you need. I'm able to hold a Bescor battery in the large pocket for my camera light, which is the primary reason I bought this. I can put my police scanners either in the pocket on the strap or use the belt clips and stack them sideways on the strap. I've got some extra batteries, earplugs, pen and paper, tapes, flashlight, handcuffs and pepper spray all in this thing. I'm switching over to Porta Brace's Videographer Vest due to one reason. Running with this thing is cumbersome. If you're walking or standing it is very comfortable, but running chasing police down the street is not easy cause it flops around. There is an included waist strap that I've never tried that would probably help reduce the flopping around though. And furthermore, having it on (w/ 10 pounds of gear and not sitting down) for more than about 3 hours can cause some shoulder pain from the direct weight/pressure from the one-shoulder design or back stiffness, and I'm 23. But I'd say that's normal for anything like this. The padded shoulder pad is amazing for shoulder-mount cameras as it helps grip the camera from sliding off your shoulder and adds very comfortable padding. I bought the black one. Overall I recommend this product a full 10/10 and do not believe they could have done anything to make it any better. Buy it. You won't regret it. I'm incredibly picky and still love it. I've used this with a Canon XL-2 and Canon XH-A1s.

                Comments about Porta Brace SS-2 Side Sling Pack (Black):

                Very comfortable, didn't take time to get used to. Has a great spot for my cell phone, and room for everything from pens to full scripts. I'm sure I can fit everything I need and more in here.

                Has two pockets the full length of the sling, 3 closing pockets, 3 slip pockets behind the closing pockets, 2 phone/wireless mic pockets with velcro closures for cords or antennas, probably 7-8 pen or flashlight-sized pockets, and a small zippered pocket inside the main zipper pocket.

                When hot weather hits I'll see if I regret the extra layer of black material, but this sling has already replaced my blue PortaBrace belt pack and I doubt I'll be switching back.

                    For a run-and-gun news photographer, this bag is great. It holds batteries, cables, media, and microphones. The only drawback is the zipper broke on my last one. But I loved the bag so much I bought another one.

                        I can`t believe I waited so long to buy this product. I use this everyday. I didn`t like the way the waist belt felt, and this fixed the problem. It has enough pockets for everything. I can even get a full Anton bauer battery in it with no problem. Buy this product. I bought the black one.
