        Comments about Porta Brace BP-2 Waist Belt Pack (Blue):

        I have used several waistpacks. I have found that distributing the weight somewhat equally on each side works the best and allows you to keep decent balance when shooting. This bag allows for that. Using a bag that can only be worn on your backside eventually causes backpain and keeps you off balance (almost falling backwards). A spare battery fits nice on one side and all the cables, lav microphones, AA batteries, etc on the other. I do have to shift the waistpak a little in order to carry the camera by the camera strap because the camera sits exactly where the bag is. The strap that goes over your shoulder is uncomfortable and difficult to tighten while wearing.

          Comments about Porta Brace BP-2 Waist Belt Pack (Blue):

          I'd seen these hip packs in use by a lot of American photojournalists when I was sent to the States to cover the Oklahoma tornado for the BBC - all the guys had everything they needed to hand, whereas I had to to take my bag off, search through it and then put my bag back on... the hip pack made perfect sense!

          This simple design is a must for any photojournalist who has to run and gun. Mic, batteries, accessories can all be fitted into the various spacious pockets that are strapped around your waist - everything is easily accessible without the need to put your camera down. The waist strap is comfortable to wear and adjustable for the most generous of cameramans muffin top waistlines!

          Portabrace are synonymous for making quality products for the professional - this is no exception.

            Comments about Porta Brace BP-2 Waist Belt Pack (Blue):

            I wanted something not too big but not too small for a reasonable cost, this seems to fit that. I can remove or add to this belt and good for carrying accessories but be able to zip close so not to lose items. I just received this so I've used it much, I have yet to find a waist pack to use instead of a vest (I already have but don't want to wear it for some uses). Fanny packs just will not work for me. There is a shoulder strap (with attachments) to prevent pulling the pants down.

            And looks cool like what ENG guys use.
