Comfortable and Easily Adjustable

  • Excerpt: Bought this to go with the Lowepro top loader I bought a couple years ago. For a while, I had been backpacking with my bag as a holster on my hip, but decided it was too uncomfortable having one leg heavier than the other. Anyway, I started carrying the bag on my chest using my sternum belt. Then I discovered this was actually made for this purpose. So much better!

Good Harness

  • Excerpt: I got this harness to use with the LowePro Toploader Pro 70 AW Camera Bag so I can wear a backpack/day pack and have easy access to my camera without having to fish thru my pack to get it.

  • Excerpt: I almost wish that B&H had not stocked this;after an hour with a Toploader 75 AW carrying a Canon 20Dwith battery grip and EF 70-200mm 1: 2.8,I am more than ready to take it off.Cosmos' shoulder pads help some, but not enough.On one hand, having the Toploader positioned foreasy camera access is great, but it puts my backunder unusual and uncomfortable stress (I only very rarely have back issues).It also bounces and squeaks irritatingly while walking.The main supporting...

Nice chest harness

  • Excerpt: I use this to carry a Thinktank Mirrorless Mover 20 bag and it works great. The price is unbelievably cheap and it is made well. I can't attest to it's ability to comfortably carry heavy gear but it makes carrying my Samsung NX system very pleasant. There isn't any padding but for my bag it's not important.

  • Excerpt: No padding, not very adjustable but also pretty cheap so how much can I really expect?

  • Excerpt: The case that I have is smaller and wasn't quite made for this harness. But I can attach a couple of D-rings to the bottom sides and it will be perfect. I can't wait to use it!

Why Not Just Come with the Camera Bag?

23 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm not sure why Lowepro just doesn't provide this harness with the bag. It's like buying a car and having to buy the passenger seat separately. Please see my review of the Lowepro Top Loader Pro 70 AW Camera Bag if you want to read my review of the full system (harness with bag.
