    wanderer holster and cotton carrier

    An interest in photography somehow leads to the assembly of things photographic. Having been at this avocation for over 30 years, with both my wife and I having had a professional interest in wildlife, the collection has expanded from film, motor wind and battery back to multiple digital cameras and lenses. My discovery of Cotton Carrier has been liberating. Starting with the vest I could hike hands free. The steady shot replaced the tripod. The sidekick, which I was told may be coming back, has become my wife's possession and carrier. The third digital unit needed a home, so the wanderer holster attached to the vest was purchased. Each camera has a niche in our photography and a secure place on the carriers.

    All of the Cotton Carrier equipment is thoughtfully designed and impeccably constructed. I am not quite sure how my wife and I would do what we do without it.

    Versatile hands free system

    I have really enjoyed using the wanderer during my family vacation through Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain National Parks. It is very easy to transfer from my belt to the stap of my kid carrier hiking backpack. The carrier holds my camera securely but allows me quick access and has allowed me to catch many pictures that I would not have had I needed to put the backpack down. I also really hate neck straps and things hanging off of my shoulders, and I expect this will become my regular way to carry the camera from nown on! Love it, zero complaints!

    Game changer

    The holster makes all the difference in my confidence while moving around. No more swinging camera, no more having to hold my camera to keep it from bumping people or things. It's just always secured to my hip, ready to rock.

    My back is s-o-o-o-o happy

    I am almost always packing at least two cameras for multiple assignments, and even just for fun, shooting video and still images. Back in the day, I had two SLRs around my neck. Now, I only have a lightweight video camera on my neck, with a full frame digital camera and any lens riding in the Cotton Carrier side holster. The redistribution of weight is a big deal, and makes long days at an air show more comfortable. To avoid strain on the camera body lens mount, I put the Cotton Carrier disc attachment on the tripod collar of my biggest telephoto lenses, and let the lens and camera rest in the holster that way. The security tether gives peace of mind just in case... Yes, I am a big fan.

    Awesome product

    This is just what I've been looking for to keep my camera in place and not bouncing around while I'm hiking.
    I've tried so many different straps but when I saw the holster I knew I needed to try it.
    I had a small issue with the teether strap that came with the holster and their customer service took care of it right away.
    I'm very happy with this company, their product and best customer service ever!
    Thank you.

    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.
