Lowepro S&F Technical Harness

You Pay: $43.20
Product Highlights
  • One Size Fits Most Chest Sizes
  • Lightweight Supportive & Flexible Design
  • SlipLock Attachment Loops
  • Breathable and Resilient Materials

The Lowepro S&F Technical Harness (Black) is designed for a photojournalist or photographer who needs go light and move fast when covering an event. This lightweight, supportive and flexible design must be worn with the Lowepro S&F Light Utility Belt or the S&F Deluxe Technical Belt to relieve the weight of heavier loads. It also fits a Street & Field #13 Deluxe Waistbelt, large. It is made from 600 denier polyester, 1680 denier nylon, 420 denier AZ Dobby nylon and Dry Flo mesh outer fabrics.

The S&F technical Harness uses SlipLock attachment loops to allow the attachment of compatible S&F or Lowepro SlipLock products. There are lapel strap keepers that secure a camera strap to the harness at the shoulders via a sturdy snap which fully integrates with optional S&F Utility Laptop Backpack 100 AW to create a comprehensive working system. It is ideal for a sports photographer or journalist, when the backpack is attached to the harness with a belt via straps and SlipLock loops. A detachable handle cup and restraint straps quickly convert the harness to a backpack allowing the photographer to carry an additional Lowepro shoulder bag. There is a sternum strap with built-in safety whistle that adjusts for a comfortable, snug fit.

Note! This harness cannot be used alone.

      The S&F Technical Harness (TH) is the leanest of the Lowepro shoulder carriers and the most suitable for hot weather (the remaining two models are more vest-like). A belt is indispensable to use the TH. The Lowepro literature shows the TH attached to either a S&F Deluxe Technical Belt or a S&F Light Utility Belt. While it is easy to attach the TH to a Deluxe Technical Belt and it works well there, forget about using it with a Light Utility Belt - it simply takes too much effort and swearing to attach it, and does not sit quite right (you cannot use the same hoops where the D-rings sit, and are forced to attach the harness to the inside hoops through which the belt passes).
      With the proper belt and belt packs/holsters, the TH works fine and helps a lot distributing the weight. I would definitely not use a modular belt without some kind of shoulder support, and the TH is the best I have tried in the sense that weight is well carried while my upper body does not feel imprisoned within a tight vest.
      Although my experience with the TH is mostly positive, this equipment is not perfect. The D-rings on the shoulder straps of the TH are placed too high (a second set placed lower would be more useful). The hoops to attach modular components to the shoulder straps are also too high (also in this case I could use a second set placed much lower, like on the vests). The plastic clips that attach the TH to the belt do not seem so strong, and definitely are not designed to be closed and opened on a regular basis. Metal carabiners would be more appropriate. The C-shaped strap to attach a bag's handle at the rear of the harness where the shoulder straps join has a tendency to rotate downward. Rather than attaching a generic bag to this strap to carry it backpack-wise, I would try to find a bag (or a light backpack with non-padded shoulder straps) that can attach instead to the two oblique webbing hoops located nearby.

      Serves purpose but could be improved

      Very sturdy. Back strap is not long enough for tall people. I had to add webbing and connector.
      Not enough D rings attached. The D rings are too high up.

          Comments about Lowepro S&F Technical Harness:

          The top of the harness is cut too high. It rubs against the back of your neck. it might work for you if you put no weight on the front straps.It is a poor design in my opinion. It should have two straps in the back to attach to the belt. Then the weight would be on you shoulders, and not on the back of your neck.It gives me a sore neck. YMMV.

          Great product

          Comments about Lowepro S&F Technical Harness:

          I bought this along with the utility belt and lens pouch and I must say it's definitely worth it. I photograph car events so I have to constantly be on the move during the event and it's so much better than carrying a camera bag. I love how it has straps on either shoulders to support your camera strap and it just hangs off of the harness. It's built well too it's not just some cheap fabrication to it. I would rate this product 5 out of 5.

          Good for holding up the belt

          About Me Photo Enthusiast

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Durable
          • Good support

          Cons

          • Difficult Adjustment

          Best Uses

            Comments about Lowepro S&F Technical Harness:

            The harness is designed to function as a belt holder, pure and simple. It has no use by itself, so if you can wear one of the S&F belts without the need of additional support, this product is lost on you. Being trim through the waist and hip, I require it to keep the belt with attached goodies on my person; I also like the additional weight distribution.

            I chose the harness over the vest b/c the fit of the vest wasn't great which resulted in extraneous mesh getting in the way. It's not as sleek as the vest, with the trade-off of covering much less surface area. I highly recommend trying both products (if you are able) to select the best fit for your situation.

            Getting the adjustment right takes a bit of doing, which is the worst thing about it. Otherwise it's a solid product. I use an R-strap on top of the harness and it works OK--do not try to use the built in strap loops if doing this--I haven't tried it with a neck strap.

            Overall, it does what I need it to, but not in a flat-out exceptional way; I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. If the vest is a good fit for you, then it's probably the better option in terms of adjustment and weight distribution.

            Comments about Lowepro S&F Technical Harness:

            The harness is great Lowepro needs to hire someone to write instructions. You need to STUDY the pictures to figure out how to setup the harness. Lots of extras with no explanation on how to use them. Excellent addition to the waist belt. Distributes the weight nicely. Lack of instructions knocks off the fifth star

                  So I read the reviews in the forum prior to purchase, which led me to purchase the recommended deluxe belt along with the harness.
                  Neither the belt nor the harness will couple (except very awkwardly) with my Nikon camera strap, there is no way for my SB flash bags to be fastened to the belt, and in order to make the system useful one must purchase a plethora of separate add-on products.

                                If you have S&F Deluxe Technical belt - get this harness! It's light weight, won't make you hot, and will help take the weight off the technical belt. Very good construction, lots of attachment points and even comes with a hanging loop for a coat rack. Once you attach it to a technical belt, put on a few lens bags, attach flash units to the front straps, put on phone case, second camera, etc - be prepared to look like a commando!
                                One of the best investments for an event photographer though.

                                    Very sturdy. Back strap is not long enough for tall people. I had to add webbing and connector.
                                    Not enough D rings attached. The D rings are too high up.

                                      The S&F Technical Harness is a great item that does what it says. Coupled with the S&F Deluxe Technical Belt, it holds lots of items and distributes weight comfortably. I just wish it had some kind of holster to also hold a tripod.

                                      I use the harness along with the lightweight belt and assorted pouches to carry my photography gear in the woods and fields. Similar to Vietnam era Alice web gear, only better. It takes some repositioning of the various pouches to get the system to balance with your load just like military web gear. A good system for field work.

                                              I shoot documentaries in developing countries where it is important to always have your camera. I used the S&F system on my last trip, and it made a huge difference! I was able to know the camera was available when I wanted it, but could zip it up and be sure that stuff wouldn't leave me without knowing it. My previous system meant that I either had the camera out, or it was packed away. It took a lot of time to unpack and start shooting again. With the S&F system I could go from packed to shooting in seconds. I wore the system all week and didn't have any complaints. The weight was well distributed, and I wasn't worried about breaking anything.
