Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Does not Chafe, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Does not Chafe, Strong Construction
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.
