comfort and easy access to your kit!

Summary: I photograph high speed mountain bike events so often have to hike up big inclines, before I bought this belt everything was in a rucksack and backache became a problem and also having to change lenses quickly was difficult. This is a very versatile belt and with the weight taken on my hips it's much easier to balance when doing fast panning. Only downside is that after an hour or two running around I found that the belt loosened a little, so needed an adjustment.
Summary: Comfortable belt capable of carry a D7000 with a 18-200 attached and a sigma 150-500 without weighing heavily on the hips. I was expecting to have to get should straps too but this has proven unnecessary.The only (minor) downside is you look a little tooled up but its perfect when out watching birds, in combination with pouches I find it very easy to swop lenses.Recommended.
Summary: I, like many photographers, suffer from a bad back! I use the belt in conjunction with a few lens pouches and a Black Rapid double harness instead of a rucsac. Everything is on hand and the benefits for my back are fantastic. The usual Lowepro quality is there and I can see the belt lasting years. Probably longer than my back!
Summary: Basically you need this if you've bought the waistcoat - as the two compliment each other. Enables you to clip your collection of bags and accessories around and off yourself. You can hang a fair old bit of kit from it without it feeling uncomfortable and heavy. Looks a bit like a Bat Belt with everything on it but it does what it says it does!!
