The Large / X-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 Large / X-Large
38.0 - 48.0" (96.5 - 121.9 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 shoot sometimes fire photography and need durable quick gear to use. This worked well with all my needs and other gear coordination.

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

            This belt is strong and comfortable. Im able to attach 3 lens pouches and other accessories no problem. Ideal for photo shoots that require lots of movement and/or walking or hiking. It keeps you balanced and allows quick access to lenses and other accessories. In many cases it eliminates the need for camera/lens bag over your shoulder. The only minor drawback is after wearing it for a while you tend to get hot around the waist and or sweaty.
            Highly recommended.

                Think tank makes some great stuff. The belt is very comfortable. I like the Steriod version because it is wider and seems to distribute weight better than a thinner belt would. Got several lens pouches, speedlight pouch and gadget pouch which attach very securely. I have only attached the pouches in the "lock" fashion; have not used the "rotate" feature of the system. I got the pixel racing harness which does attach to the D-rings, but you end up with a lot of extra strap material. Seems like the harness design is more compatible with the smaller belts from Think Tank. Overall, an excellent belt for your gear.
