Designed for active photographers, the Realtree Xtra camo CCS G3 Harness-1 from Cotton Carrier helps to evenly distribute the weight of a camera with a long lens. This arrangement keeps the camera at the ready for making the most of spontaneous photographic opportunities, while also keeping hands free, equipment safer from grab-and-go theft, and reducing unwanted camera movement. Photographers will appreciate the one-size-fits-all approach, comprised of adjustable shoulder straps and a quick-release waist belt.

Two stash pockets for memory cards or batteries and a large exterior pocket provide storage for accessories. The CCS G3 Harness is constructed from Kodra synthetic canvas and anodized aluminum, and features a Twist & Lock camera mounting system and vented back panel. Included with your harness are a hub with rubber washer, camera hub mounting bolt and tether strap, an Allen key, tether split-ring, and a rain cover.

Advantages
A quick-release waist belt with speed straps, two stash pockets for carrying extra memory cards or small items on the front, a large outside pocket on the back, and a touch-fastening lens hold-down strap work together for improved hands-free usage with greater mobility.
Twist & Lock Mount
The Twist & Lock camera mount system provides stability and security. One twist locks the camera in place, making it difficult for grab-and-go theft. It also stabilizes the camera so the wearer is free to move vigorously without excessive camera movement/banging.
Tripod Compatibility
The CCS G3 Camera Harness features a Twist & Lock mounting system. Included is an aluminum flat-hub which mounts onto all cameras with a 1/4"-20 tripod mounting socket. This hub also has its own 1/4"-20 tripod mount.
Optional Items - Sold Separately
Option 1: Add the Hand Strap for those times when you need a little extra stability.

Option 2: 10-Degree Angled Hub for a DSLR with a long lens.

Option 3: Universal Tripod Adapter Plate. This plate is compatible with most tripod heads on the market. It is cut to fit directly into any Arca-Swiss style head, and designed with enough adjustment holes to slide back and forth on the bottom of your camera to leave the battery door accessible.

Cotton Carrier CCS G3 Reviews

One use so far and seems great!

By Cindy

I only tried this one time. It was so comfortable over my thick coat that I forgot I had it on and wore it into the grocery store. The attachment that goes on the camera worked well and slip nicely into the slot. My main issue that I didn't expect was that my lens cap fell off the camera at some point during my walk and I was not aware of it.

The Cotton Carrier G3 Harness eliminates the hand carrying of heavy long lenses by mounting the hub on your camera and locking it into place on the harness. This keeps your camera & lens handy when photo ops arise

Still playing with adjustments. When carrying a bigger lens, it tends to crawl up my back and gets uncomfortable around neck.

Almost perfect

By Luka
Rated 5 out of 5

Almost perfect. I believe that a fusion of this product and Peak Design Capture-Clip would make a perfect product. Turning your camera 90 degrees in order to pull it out or put it back is a very big effort when using anything larger than a 50mm prime. Also, the CCS camera piece that you mount on the bottom seems like an incomplete product and like they just said ok it works, it's good enough. The CCS camera piece also has a thread to screw on the tripod plate, but that does not work because the CCS mount is way to tall and has a small footprint, so when you mount the tripod plate it's all wobbly. I'm giving it 5-stars because it's the only product of this kind I have managed to find, so at the same time it makes it the best.

Works as well as I hoped

Based on reviews I had high expectations and the carrier met them. Could not imagine any device this size, weight and level of comfort that would hold the camera more securely and stably. With a Nikon D850 and a large, heavy 200-500 zoom it works very well hiking in moderate terrain. I saw a couple of comments that it was a bit slow or awkward to remove the camera due to the 90 degree rotation required but I decided to install the holder on the camera 90 degrees off the recommended to allow lifting the camera straight up to release from the harness. Yes that does make it theoretically possible for the camera to fall out of the harness but you would have to lean over almost upside down or experience some extraordinary event for that to happen. Since I also keep the regular strap attached and around my neck as a backup I feel like belt and suspenders applies. Initial adjustment wasn't very difficult and after a couple of uses can pop it on and off in seconds. Highly recommend.

Asked by: les
The honest answer is I don't know. The straps allow for a lot of adjustment but I guess it depends on your size and the size of your vest. I wear a W's large and my carrier will fit over a down vest, which of course is more compressible than a kayak vest. Hope this helps a little...

I need back support. Does this harness provide that?
Asked by: Cathy
Technically no, but it would certainly be much better than using a heavy camera on a traditional strap around your neck or shoulder. This harness would take some strain off your back compared to most other camera carriers.

Can this be worn under a backpack?
Asked by: Edwin
Yes, it could be. Please note that it will likely be putting weight in just about the same area as the straps to your backpack will. So, you may alternatively wish to consider mounting your camera to the backpack strap, for example with a Capture Clip (B&H# PECPBK3): https://bhpho.to/37P3pvd
