        Great item. I am in the field everyday for eng camera use. U can use it as a fanny pack or a shoulder bag. Perfect for a few batteries , mica, and other everyday run and gun shooting needs!

        Comments about Porta Brace BP-1 Waist Belt Pack (Black):

        I use this for daily ENG shoots. My shoulder bag recently fell apart so I started shopping around for something similar, but with no luck. I held off buying a "phanny pack" thinking I wasn't cool enough to pull it off in the field. My back is telling me to get over it, so I pulled the trigger on the BP-1. It's light and has a good selection of pockets. The quality is what you would expect given how proud Porta Brace is of their gear. My only gripe, and it's a big one for me, is the waist belt is attached to the pack with velcro straps. This makes for a noisy and awkward fit, especially if you have a battery along for the ride. I get needing the option to ditch the waist belt, but velcro wasn't the answer. Shooters that frequent press conferences may not enjoy the added awkwardness of this "phanny" when you arrive a few minutes late.

            This product helps you carry your battery, cables and all sort of stuff you need to make your job easier and sets your hands free so you can use them for other things such as holding the camera.

            Comments about Porta Brace BP-1 Waist Belt Pack (Black):

            The compartments are fantastic! Perfict fit for all the bits and pieces. The belt however digs in a bit and because its so narrow the bag bounces around a bit when you walk.
            But for the convenience of having your 'stuff' at your disposal on news it is a great addition to the kit!
