(From company literature) Lowepro Street and Field Shoulder Harness. Use with the S&F Deluxe Waistbelt to carry SlipLock components and support larger cases. With shock-absorbing DryFlo mesh-covered padding, CollarCut shoulder straps and adjustable sternum strap, the S&F Shoulder Harness gives extra support for heavy loads. (Must be used with the S&F Deluxe Waistbelt.)


Features:

  • The SlipLock System: Many different bags and packs are compatible with SlipLock add-ons (a wide variety of pouches). A reinforced attachment tab slides into any SlipLock loop and fastens securely. Attach SlipLock add-ons to your own belt or other SlipLock base products. Look for the "SlipLock System" logo throughout this brochure.
  • The Tri-Glide Attachment: This heavy-duty webbing system connects an S&F Shoulder Harness or Vest Harness to a Deluxe Waistbelt and larger bags and packs.
  • Cinch Straps: Used to keep S&F components close to the body for stability and freedom of movement.
  • Waistbelt Slot: To use with a Deluxe Waistbelt on some of our larger bags.

S&F Deluxe Waistbelt and SlipLock pouches sold separately.


Specifications:

  • Type: Shoulder Harness
  • Available Colors: Black/Gray
  • Sizes: One size fits most
  • Fabric: Ballistic nylon

Keywords: Lowepro Shoulder-Harness

Lowepro Street and Field Shoulder Harness review by aryko
Review Date: 12/26/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $75.00| Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Distributes weight well
Cons: Limited usefulness when used alone; a must when using the pack and waistbelt.

Obviously, the Lowepro strapping system by itself is only marginally useful; it is at its best when paired with the Street and Field Rover pack and Deluxe waistbelt.


That said, if you have separate attachments for your camera, the straps alone are useful if you'd rather not be bulked up with a pack. The straps distribute weight evenly and practically.


A number of pouches can be attached at several points on the straps, but I found limited usefulness in this arrangement; to me, it's more useful (and necessary) when used with the pack and waistbelt.
