The Hands-Free Camera/Binoculars Carrying Harness from Keyhole allows to carry your favorite camera safely during outdoor activities and exploration trips. It consists of a set of shoulder straps, neck strap, a harness assembly, a specially designed 1/4"-20 adapter for cameras, and a bracket assembly for binoculars. This harness is worn as a vest with your camera or binocular attached to it via the camera's 1/4"-20 hole or a binocular bracket, and held securely from swinging from side to side by a neck strap with split rings. To keep your lenses from extending down and your lens caps from being lost while you are walking or hiking, use a the hook and loop fastener on tether strap and included patches to secure them. The assembly will not interfere with your tripods and you should not worry about taking adapter or bracket off while you are in the field. The harness can also be worn by itself, underneath back pack straps, or can be attached to a backpack or chest harness that uses a 1" wide webbing on the shoulder straps.

    Hands-Free Camera/Binoculars Carrying Harness with Shoulder Straps is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Harness for Camera and Binocular Carrying In order to get great shots of wildlife in the mountains, I need to hike long distances. Carrying all of my day pack gear plus my heavy camera, at times can be daunting. With the Keyhole harness, I don't even realize the camera is hanging in front of me. It's safe and secure. I watched the Youtube video from 'The Outdoor Adventure'. In the search window type in 'camera harness'. This video sold me right away. I mostly use the Keyhole with my camera, but am equally satisfied when using it with binoculars to scout for wildlife. Well made, well designed, well priced. Great harness.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well made...just not for women This is a sturdy hands free holder...it is just not made for anyone that has a chest...specifically a woman! I couldn't get it to not have the camera popping out of the keyhold while doing any kind of hiking (which made me a little nervous with my lens on!)...other than straight walking. It is a little awkward to wear, but I suppose if you didn't have anything else in the way...it might work better for men :). I'm actually returning it and hoping to find something that has a better fit.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not up to my expectations I hate to write a negative review, but the Keyhole harness didn't meet my expectations. I returned it the day after I got it, plus since it wasn't defective, I had to pay return shipping, but if I had kept it, I doubt I would ever use it. I bought it because my Sony A77 would cause shoulder and neck pain when carrying it and thought this harness would solve that problem. Upon receipt, I noticed some construction details that I didn't think reflected the price. The Keyhole plate is plastic, not metal and I wonder how well that will hold up over time, or crack with age. The 3/8 straps that you use in place of the camera strap are sewn to the harness with only one row of stitches. This wasn't very study looking, and is suppose to support the camera. When I adjusted it and tried it on, I found the padded straps that are suppose to cushion the weight only come down on the front of your body. They say to adjust it so the cushion part is at the top of your shoulder. I'm of average size and even trying to get the strap up that high on the shoulder, ends up having the camera high on your chest. Then you're suppose to adjust the straps attached to the camera body, so it supports part of the camera weight. This leaves very little mobility to move the camera around after you take it off the keyhole slot. If you needed to get a low shot, it would be impossible. Plus, when hands free in the harness, the camera tends to tilt down so that the bottom portion of the keyhole plastic plate pushes into your chest. I had also hoped to use it with my Tamron 150-600, but then I would have to support it on the lens and that would mean the camera would be up higher on my chest, like right near my chin. The net of it for me is that this harness is not comfortable, clumsy and not as well made as I would like to see. If I wanted to switch between the harness and a camera strap, changing it over would be not be quick. What I ended up doing is buying a better camera strap, a Ruggard modestly priced one and then I put a home made hook on the bottom of my camera in the tripod slot, so now I can use the Ruggard strap across my chest and hang the camera off my belt when not using it. It will be much less cumbersome, easy to use and eliminate most of the weight of carrying the camera, with the strap adjusted to take up part of the weight. Hope this can help someone else make an infomred decision.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! Based on some of the reviews for this harness I didn't have high expectations for the quality of this product. Consequently, it was a very good surprise to find a very well made harness. Some may prefer or need a more heavy duty rig but I got it in hopes of easing the load of my OMD EM1 with 40-150 f2.8 lens while hiking in Alaska. It is a light but sturdy rig and the keyhole sling works perfectly with my camera and lens. As recommended, I attached the shoulder straps from the harness to the two neck strap lugs on the camera creating 3 attachment points for the camera. This carries my camera and lens stably against my chest even while hiking on uneven terrain. It also folds up into a light and easy to pack shape for my camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would definitely buy again I have a very bad back and a heavy camera. I saw this harness and bought it immediately. I got it to keep the weight even and it does but having my hands free is a HUGE bonus. Also, I didn't know this but the front of the harness comes off and attaches to my backpack. I haven't used it like this yet but it does work as I put it together. There is a lot of leeway with the straps--way more than I need. I will cut and burn the ends as suggested but want to wait until I have my heaviest jacket on so as not to shortchange myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Harness for Hiking I've owned two Keyholes for a couple of years and had them attached to our backpacks. They holds our cameras safe & stable when hiking over rough terrain. Been looking for a harness for those shorts hikes where I didn't want to wear a heavy backpack. This was the ideal solution. Highly recommended.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hands-Free Camera/Binoculars Harness with Shoulder Straps This product is a good idea. However, it did not work for me. I was unable to adjust the harness, despite several attempts, so it fit me comfortably. I am not an unusual shape and have an athletic build. Perhaps this product might work better for others.
