Kinesis H717-K overview

  • 1Description

The H717-K X-Harness from Kinesis is designed to hold a heavy DSLR along with an attached lens against the chest. A pair of high-density polyethylene staves at the front of the harness and an "x-style" crisscross rear design transfers loads away from the neck and shoulder for increased comfort.

.24" (6mm) of closed-cell foam padding on the harness's shoulder area, and 2.95" (75mm)-wide, breathable .12" (3mm) padded spacer fabric on the inside surface are included for comfort, while smooth-coated 400 denier nylon on the outer surface provides durability.

Though designed to function independently, the H717-K X-Harness can be used to provide additional stability to a padded Kinesis belt. This can be accomplished by attaching such a belt to the harness with a separately-sold Kinesis H167 4-Point Suspender Adapter, or should a camera also be worn on the harness's front, an H163 3-Point Suspender Adapter.

A Kinesis H675 PJ Camera Strap can be used in tandem with this harness to switch a camera between two carrying methods. Op/Tech, UPstrap, or Tamrac neck strap systems with sewn-in quick-release buckles can be used with the H717-K X-Harness by adding Kinesis H439 Harness to Op/Tech Straps, H441 Harness to UPstrap Camera Straps, or H442 Harness to Tamrac Straps respectively. Alternatively, H437 Harness to Snap Hook Straps allow a holster or pouch with D-Rings to be carried on the chest. These items are also sold separately.

A pair of H436 Harness to Kinesis Camera Straps as well as a pair of H435 Kinesis Camera Adapters are included with the H717-K X-Harness. The H436 straps join the harness to H435 adapters which allow a camera to attach to the harness without a neckstrap. An included sway-free strap helps keep a camera or holster from swinging excessively when attached to the harness. A Y215 Basic Shoulder Strap can also be added, snapped onto the D-Rings of the harness, and then run around the back of the torso for additional stability.

    Kinesis H717-K reviews

    H717-K X-Harness is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Harness I have owned Cotton Carrier and Trekking Safari harness, and this is my favorite. It is comfortable to hold my Nikon D700 with power grip and 70-200 f/2.8. It doesn't use the screw on the bottom of the camera body, and is easy to be unbuckled to put on a tripod. The only con is it is quite bulky in my backpack. The 90 degree turn required by Cotton Carrier is quite annoying, and the back vest push pressure on the neck when the front vest hold all the weight. Trekking Safari is comfortable and it doesn't use the bottom screw as well, but it restricts the camera movements, especially if you try to turn the camera to a portrait position.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Harness I have owned Cotton Carrier and Trekking Safari harness, and this is my favorite. It is comfortable to hold my Nikon D700 with power grip and 70-200 f/2.8. It doesn't use the screw hole on the bottom of the camera, which is easy to be unbuckled to put on a tripod. Kgear sells inexpensive parts that support multiple cameras, and their buckles can be attached to the original camera straps so you can easily switch between harness and camera strap. The only con is it is quite bulky in my backpack. The 90 degree turn required by Cotton Carrier is quite annoying. I missed some shots in event shooting due to this stupid turn. The back vest pushes pressure on my neck while the front vest holds all the weight. It is not tripod friendly and you have to carry the hex key around. Trekking Safari is comfortable and nicely distributes most of the weight to the back. It doesn't use the bottom screw as well. It is quite compact and is easy to fit in a backpack. However, it restricts the camera movements, especially if you try to turn the camera to a portrait position.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so great... Difficult to size; too many straps, unclear directions. It will work for my needs, but not as I had hoped.
