  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy

Nice, but a tad small

15 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I like this. It is good for putting accessories down when your hands are full and works quite well for stabilizing your tripod with rocks or jugs of water. The only downside is that I'd like the pockets to be slightly larger.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: Slightly Too Small

Heavy Duty and Handy!

Annabelle, B&H Photo
24 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I don't know how I got by without this! This utility apron is made of heavy duty canvas and attaches with leather straps, as opposed to plastic clips. It's like having an extra set of durable, waterproof hands on set. I throw all the little camera bits, C47s and such in there.
