    Versa-Flex HS1N reviews

    HS1N Professional Audio Harness is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Back Saver! My location sound kit consists of a Sound Devices 702 recorder and a Sound Devices 302 mixer. This combo can get pretty heavy by the end of a 12 hour day, hence this harness by Versa-Flex. The lower back support is especially helpful and keeps me standing tall instead of being hunched over by the weight of the gear. The set-up of the back straps is very important, and warrants some experimentation prior to first use in the field. You are on your own in terms of set up. There are no instructions or even pictures to follow. You must go to their web site to examine pictures . (pictures included in the packaging would be helpful and might be expected considering the price). In any event, this item is well worth the cost considering the fact that you are saving your back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endurance I'm typically a director and sound guy at the same time, and on documentary, taking your gear on and off all day isn't an option. Especially when you're making climbing videos, adventure travel stuff, etc. This fits me like a glove. I wore it all weekend while climbing and had zero back issues, soreness - I didn't even want to take it off. I love how it keeps my gear right in front of me as well. I don't think lots of people mention that.I simply have one issue:I've worked with outdoor gear my whole life, and I've always been confused why the filmmaking industry and the outdoor gear industry don't communicate more. I feel like this strap could be a bit simpler as well as compact - I don't understand why I'm un-able to stuff it in my mixer bag after a shoot, or fold it into the size of a zucchini. That's a feature which many, many other bags and straps which are much, much larger have.That's my complaint. And I'm apt to call it more of a cry for luxury. I love this guy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Real Back Saver. A mixer, recorder, a bunch of receivers and way to much random bits of tape and stuff rolling around my audio bag can take a toll on my back after many hours of work. The lower back strap is great for adding extra support for your back. It also helps keep the bag securely in place while running and getting in and out of vehicles in a hurry. The only down side of the harness are that the plastic latches on the lower straps were a little hard to hook. I added some cheap charabinres to the latches which made for easier clipping to the bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the Big Guy too I am a XXL - XXXL and I was worried this harness would not fit me. I am happy to report it fits easily and comfortably.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I've been jumping on crews for reality/lifestyle tv where the most common mixer has been the 8 channel 788T along with 5-6 wireless receivers, a wireless hop, extra lithium and additional batts as well as back-up transmitters on board. All this amounts to a beast of a rig. It's not as if you can't feel it, but I can't imagine a better harness. Worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this now I used this all weekend with the Portabrace 700 series pouch, 702/302/& 3 Senn RF packs - felt like nothing. Seriously one of the best investments of my life. Comfortable to wear, easy on the back and shoulders, can be custom fit to people big, tall and small. Do yourself a favor, buy this harness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have for the Wendt Field Mixer I use the harness when out in the field recording with the Wendt 5 Audio Field Mixer. When out in the field your mixer is secure, your hands are free and makes carrying the mixer easy and painless. If you record audio in the field, this is a must have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This harness will save your back! When you're in the field for 12+ hours, your back can really start hurting if you don't support your gear properly, this Hartis distributes the weight perfectly across both shoulders and your back... I'll never do production sound without it ever again !
