    Sachtler SN605 reviews

    Heavy Duty Harness is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Confortable harness Very confortable harness. I bought this from B&h last February, and I got try it right away I reacently spent an entire day of shooting with it, standing all day, carrying the Tascam DR-680 with the Porta Brace AR-DR680B bag, plus 2 Sennheiser receivers, with boom pole and the Rode NTG 2 and its blimp-furry windscreen etc.,..and all the time it felt confortable, no strain on my back at all. The only issue was,(and I'm sure Sachtler can easily take care of this), is that the part of the strap that touches the back of the neck is made out of mesh fabric, and after a while moving around it becomes too a bit rough on the back of your neck. But I think it can easily be solved with a small cushioning piece attached to that part of the strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Harness for Bag Support Got this harness to support my Orca OR-28 bag. Before buying this, I would hang the bag on my neck which would get very exhausting and painful after a long day on set. This harness is very comfortable and extremely easy to take on and off. I usually leave the harness on and just unclip my mixer bag during breaks but I can easily clip my bag back on in a matter of seconds. Make sure you tighten the straps as tight as you can against your body to get the best back support. Also having a harness makes you look badass!! Will definitely up your set style points! I am happy with this harness and I know my back will thank me down the line!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for Location Sound Recordists Just came off using this for a 15 day shoot, and am thrilled with how useful it is. Not only does it distribute the weight of a Tascam HS-P82 (around 12 pounds) really well, but it also offers 6 D-rings, so you can strap any extra cables, and headphones (when you're not wearing them) to it and still move around comfortably. I had been previously using a Portabrace neck strap, but the weight of the mixer was leaving me sore for a few days after each shoot. With this harness, I left 15 hour days feeling none of that. The combination of the weight distribution, and the ability to have everything I could need clipped to it, makes this a super easy product to recommend for sound recorderists. I can imagine it's uses ranging from film sets, to even relatively simple foley collection out in the field. My only real negative point is that they only include one removable Mod-u-Lox pouch, and you can't seem to buy more. Two would be handy, but by only having one, I just end up removing it. Fantastic product otherwise though. Definitely check it out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than a single shoulder strap. This is a very affordable harness. I used it with my K-Tek bag for a 16 day shoot and it was such a relief in many ways. There were days it was over 90 degrees and having this helped. The only slight issue was the top of harness does rub on the back of the neck. I did see this on other reviews. I wore polo shirt with collars and pulled up my t-shirt a bit to help. I will probably add a piece of cloth. I got used to this harness in a single day. If you're smaller than a 30 waist there will be some slack, big folks don't worry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do You Want to Look Awesome?? Have you ever wanted to be a Sound Guy but you look at your bank account and it laughs at you? Tired of the cables being unmanageable? Tired of your back and neck making your chiropractor rich? Then this right here is the answer to the problems on a budget. Enough places for carabiners to connect to to manage that spider web of cables! Breathable material that means you won't stink up the set from sweating so much in the heat, and instead of your bank account crying it's now the chiropractor's bank account crying because you're not there. That's where this piece is what you need. Adjustable to fit what you need, comfortable, and it makes you look like a complete Action Hero. If you were to look at me, I look pathetic, normal, but as soon as I put this on, I needed a bigger Boompole to keep everyone back! Don't doubt the power of this beast, and enjoy it! In short, it's comfortable, it does its job, and you still look like a complete Action Hero.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and sturdy I got this harness because a person who will remain un-named broke my other one. I just tested it out a few minutes ago and it put my petrol bag in the perfect place and after spending a few moments adjusting the straps. My audio bag doesn't even feel like its on once you get this one set up correctly. I liked that it has a snap on pouch. I could definitely see using it to hang a camera return off of it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid... very solid. After several uses... the harness was a solid purchase. At times it seems a bit bulky. I guess that should be expected by the Heavy Duty harness. The bulk is most noticeable around the neck, where the harness wraps around the shoulders. Nothing major though... All around... a great harness and well worth the money. Very well made. Excellent features.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exelent Impressive harness, a little bit confusing at first bu looks incredibly professional and is extremely well done, strong and comfortable. I will buy it again and again if necessary.
