The Medium / Large black Steroid Speed Belt V2.0 from Think Tank is a strong 3.5" (8.9 cm) wide belt with a curved design that enhances shooting comfort. It is especially designed for excellent back support - a plus when carrying around various components that lock on to the belt. The Steroid is padded with EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) and contains a durable front buckle with a built-in "stop" to prevent it from slipping. However, if you want to resize the belt, it's quite easy.

The nylon Steroid Speed Belt can be fixed in place to handle any number of optional component pouches that can either "rotate" or be "locked" in position. These components can be moved half way around the belt for your chosen degree of weight distribution. Therefore, if you're standing, kneeling or even prone, you can adjust the position of the accessory pouches so they do not interfere with your shooting. It will also accept Think Tank's optional Pixel Racing Harness that will increase the capacity of what you can tote around. It's backed by Think Tank's lifetime warranty against manufacturer's defects.

Curved, wider 3.5" (8.9 cm) waist belt for extra support
EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) padding for comfort
Belt can be fixed in one position while components "Rotate" on belt
Pixel Racing Harness can be attached
"Buckle Stops" prevent belt from loosening yet easy to resize
Rotate or Lock Technology
Modular, Skin, and Modular components can "Rotate or Lock" on the Steroid Speed Belt. This is a tremendous advantage to have this type of functionality. Most photographers "Rotate" the bags on the belt, preferring not to lock them into position. To "Rotate", put the plastic tongue behind the belt, then firmly attached the bag. This allows the bag to be pushed along the belt to the desired position. To "Lock", put the plastic tongue in the horizontal webbing slot
Material Nylon
Waist Size Medium / Large
32.0 - 42.0" (81.3 - 106.7 cm)
Please note pants sizes can vary 2.0 - 5.0" (5.1 - 12.7 cm) smaller than true waist measurements. For the most accurate results, please measure your waist with a tape measure

        I use the belt to attach small pouches for smaller items that I need quick access to during on location shoots. Since I do most of my work on location its perfect for quick access. Would recommend it to a friend !!

            J'aime bien avoir mon équipement à portée de main et le "Steroid Belt" combiné au "Pixel Racing Harness" ainsi qu'aux pochettes de rangement me donne un accès instantané à celui-ci, je le préfère à n'importe quel sac de type sling.Cependant, le point le plus intéressant est que le poids de mon équipement ne se fait pas sentir puisque réparti sur l'ensemble ceinture/harnais, je peux donc passé une journée entière à faire de la photo sans ressentir de fatigue musculaire.L'essayer c'est l'adopter.

              Comments about Think Tank Photo Steroid Speed Belt V2.0 (Medium / Large, Black):

              This is my first foray into Thinktank product, and of all three belts I choose this one. The width makes carrying strapons very comfortable, and gives my back good support.I have had similar belts before produce by another company, but that's where the similarity stops. Thinktank truly think for the need of those who either make a living with photo gear or want minimum obstruction but fast utilization of their equipment. The belt when used with associated pouches is very well balanced and sit comfortably on my hip.

                I am totally impressed ! This belt works and FEELS like a CHARM. Like wearing little or nothing at all. Even better when using the racing harness or keep it up strap ! I am absolutely in love with Think Tank's Products ! I kind of know now what the average German Soldier felt like when wearing a Y harness to carry their gear . Very comfortable indeed ! My only lament is the discontinuing or their Bazooka Line of Tripod Cases, Hint, HINT !!!

                  Love it/., It's comfortable and looks pro. I like it more than the others because it's a bit stronger and believe a bit more comfortable too. I'm hoping it'll last more as well. But it seems long lasting enough.
                  Good buy.
