Cotton Carrier 686GREY overview

  • 1Description

Designed for active photographers, the gray 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.

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 686GREY reviews

    CCS G3 Harness-1 (Gray) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Harness!! I have owned a Cotton Carrier harness since 2015 and LOVE it! �I was bummed, when, recently, the mount on the center of the harness broke in half, but, when I contacted the WONDERFUL folks at Cotton Carriers, I discovered that my harness had a three year warrantee! �I have already received my replacement harness at no cost to me, whatsoever, and am blown away by the improvements to an already great system. �The mount is now stronger, the straps even more comfortable, and the harness sits higher on my chest so that my largest lens no longer hangs too low, when I am hiking! �This is a great product from a great company and I recommend it without reservation!!! �BRAVO!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent solution for out door activities I've been using CC for a few years, and like it a lot for backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, and biking. I really like how it distributes the weight, and keeps the camera stable, but also safe during active movement. This new vest is more easily adjustable. It also uses a new hub, which is backwards computable with other CC holsters and such, however, the old hub does not work with this vest. I found that out when dashing out without changing my hub when I received the new vest :). I also use CC's adapter plate, so I can use the hub and tripod head at the same time. All in all, its a nice solution. If I'm just wandering around town, however, I tend not to dock my camera with a cc, and just use a standard strap over my neck/torso. The hub/plate does have a connection for a sling strap if that is your preference.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best way to carry your camera This is the greatest way to carry your camera. It keeps the camera close to your body and distributes the weight evenly on your shoulders rather than on your neck. Easy to adjust for different body sizes. Hiking, climbing or running, the camera stays in place. A strap to tether the camera to the harness provides extra security. The only negative is the size of the rain cover. It will not fit over my D800 with a Nikon 24-120 lens with hood, which is on the camera most of the time. I would think such a great product would have several size covers to choose from.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own it. I love it. I would buy it again. I got this a� Father's Day gift. Marvelous product. Well built and designed. Well worth the money. Made and designed in by our neighbors in Canada. I have spoken to the company. Very customer concentric.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Impressions Works as advertised. Easy to quickly pull out camera. Doesn't interfere with my day pack. Maybe they could come up with a pack that incorporates this harness system. Be carefull if you leave the camera hub attached.This makes the camera more subject to sliding off uneven surfaces such as car hoods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect solution to my neck and back pain My neck has two fused disks which makes a camera strap and heavy camera un-doable. I also have major lower back pain that also makes carrying a heavy camera and lens difficult. I looked extensively for a solution and as soon as I saw the Cotton Carrier G3 harness, I was sold. I wasn't sure how well it would fit my build, but decided to give it a try. I wore it for the first time on a whale watching tour out on the ocean where I needed to stand and hold my camera for about 3 straight hours with my 100-400mm lens and camera. It was truly a back and neck saver. It was super easy to mount and release the camera as needed and was super comfortable to wear. I would not have been able to manage the load without this carrier. I'm completely sold on the product and can't wait to use it again for future excursions. It was the perfect solution for me and I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to take the stress of a camera strap around the neck and perfectly redistribute the weight of a heavy lens to take the stress off one's back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from when you need it, it delivers Works as advertised. The reason I wanted it was to conveniently carry two cameras with different lenses, both of which shall not fit in my roll along camera equipment bag at the same time. This carrier allows me to easily carry one of the cameras in this vest while I can pull the roll along with my free hand. It nicely distributes the camera weight on your shoulder and avoids the swinging of the camera and neck strain which one experiences with the camera strap. �� �Putting it on requires some practice and it is highly recommended that the user tries the vest on a few times before using it in the field for the first time. But then this is true of all unfamiliar things. So we need not hold it against the vest. Also the use of a safety strap (which comes with the vest) is strongly recommended as an additional safety measure even though I have never experienced the camera coming loose from the vest. For locking the camera in the vest, a circular attachment plate is supplied which must be tightly screwed on to the camera bottom (Tripod attachment point). A hex nut driver is supplied for this purpose and I emphasize that this attachment must be tight. The camera, once in the vest,� stays securely locked and can be readily taken out by turning it 90 degrees.� It is worth noting that if you are using a Manfrotto style connector, it will place the camera off its axis by about a quarter inch on the tripod. In my opinion that is not a deal breaker. Because of the off axis movement, putting the Manfrotto connector may block access to the camera battery for certain cameras (including mine) , an inconvenience but again not a deal breaker. The camera vest is made in North America, which in my opinion is a plus. Over all , I am completely satisfied with the vest. Thank you Mr. Cotton for exercising your brain power in designing it and your desire to make it in North America. Five stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from like it so far had only a short time but have worn twice. I purchased it to releave stress on shoulders and it works extremely well. use a large lens and weight was problem with shoulders. So far no negative issues but think it takes some time for a quick draw to get perfected.
