    Carrying gear

    The harness works great it takes the weight off you and it is great after a few hours of shooting and hiking it does a wonderful job of giving the body a rest.and have tryed every kind of strap out there and nothing compares with this.

    Excellent product

    I purchased the G-harness and it has proved to be everything as advertised. Quality and workmanship is superb, no corners have been to produce. Weight distribution and relief in the should area has been a godsent. Nice to have the free use of both hands while hiking and photographing, too. Thank you Cotton Carrier, you have made an excellent product.

    Cotton carrier harness system.

    Really love this setup, great secure way to carry your camera and have it ready to shoot in a moments notice. Use it all the time photographing birds and wildlife while hiking the outdoors.


    Incredible! This harness went with me recently into the Amazon jungle of Colombia, Peru, and Brazil. It held my Pentax K-1 full frame with the massive 150-450mm zoom attached and never flinched. I used the extra strap to keep the lens from moving around when I was jumping into and off of the wooden canoes that took us deep into the jungle.

    I always had both hands free and never worried the harness would lose control of my gear.

    In search of the rare pink dolphins, we headed down tiny tributaries of the Amazon River for hours on end, waiting for them to surface. Pink dolphins, the rarest in the world, navigate using a zig-zag pattern through the murky Amazon basin river water and surface in completely random patterns.

    I needed the Cotton Carrier harness - a real need - to keep the camera at the ready for when the dolphins surfaced. In the few seconds that they surfaced and then disappeared, I had to spin around, raise the camera, focus, and take the shot. Thanks to the tether on the Cotton Carrier harness, I had zero worry about my camera landing in the water or falling into the boat. The few times I lost control of the camera, the tether saved it.

    With thousands of dollars of gear around my neck, I won't trust any other device from anyone else.

    If you take your camera seriously, and need a harness that becomes one with your body, and keeps everything at center mass, this is the only product I would ever use.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I use the tripod or quick release?

    The hardware has a tripod holed milled into it for tripod use. If you use quick release we recommend the Universal Tripod Adapter Plate or Universal Arca Swiss L-Bracket.


    Women's sizing

    The harness system is one size fits all with 6 points of adjustment. We get lots of positive feedback from woman photographers.

    Sizing for larger or smaller individuals

    The systems are one size fits all, spanning 26" to 57" inch waist measurements.

    Return Policy

    30 day no questions asked returns and 3 year technical warranty.

    Does the system work for large telephotos like a 600mm?

    The carrier will not fail under the weight of your camera/lens setup. A 600mm will place your weight forward and for some, it becomes a bit awkward. The system will not fail, but it becomes a subjective matter of comfort.

    Can I add another camera or binocular holster after?

    Yes, we offer a modular side holster with camera or binocular hardware. Or the individual hardware for camera or binoculars can be purchased independently.

    Can I put my camera into the binocular carrier's receiver? Or vice versa?

    All hardware uses the same twist and lock system, so you can place your camera or binoculars interchangeably in any receiver.
