The belt is very comfortable, and when it's fastened it feels VERY secure, even with a lot of weight on it.

HOWEVER. Lowepro used the standard webbing latch which releases by being squeezed on the sides. This is a MAJOR problem, because it rests at your waist. Under load {as in, covered in your gear}, even a LITTLE pressure on that latch allows it to pop open entirely, and fall off.

**Crash!!**

I loaded the belt with non-fragile weight, and did some active moving around. The belt did indeed fall off. That would have been a VERY expensive if it had three lenses and two cameras on it.

The belt might be fine if you only wear it to walk around the city standing erect and don't bend over too often or fast. But if you're hiking, biking, doing anything active, BE VERY CAREFUL. Put some kind of fail-safe on it, maybe a heavy duty ziptie or something, to catch it if it breaks open. I'm going to think about ways to modify my buckle to be more secure. If I can't think of anything I'll be returning it. Hopefully Lowepro will rethink this design.

**edit**

I have replaced the latch with a buckle from an airplane seat {aluminum, lift to open}. I love this thing now. Love it. If you want to try it, make sure you get a latch big enough for 2 inch webbing. I got mine on ebay, it was listed as: "Reid & Scott Airplane Seat Belt Buckle". But any buckle for 2 inch webbing would work. I think Amazon even sells some these days.

But seriously, the stock latch is REALLY insecure. It fell off of me once while just bending over. Be.Careful.

You might be asking yourself should I get the harness or the vest and should I get the big belt or the lighter one?

The larger "technical belt" is perfect for carrying around equipment. Its larger and more comfortable providing for greater support. I have seen reviews suggesting it looks like a "bat belt", but its really not that obnoxiously large. In terms of comfort and usability, I would get the "technical belt".

The lighter belt is more subtle and shows less. At formal events where some people are judgmental less belt is probably more desirable. However, if you plan on throwing on a case meant for the Canon 70-200 lens then it wont be subtle anyway. The lighter belt will not be good for carrying around the zoom lenses. I would avoid the lighter belt. If you are a photographer, then the expectation is you will be carrying around some photographic stuff. So just go with the larger belt as people will expect it.

The harness/suspenders is really good for hot tropical climates and for wearing over bulky clothes and jacket. The downside is the harness makes it look like you are some type of police or military soldier. While you can get away with this type of look during a photo hike or a football game, it wont work very well for an event. Therefore its best to either wear the belt alone or go with the vest for a formal event. The harness really is the more comfortable option

The vest presents a more proper appearance for an event. You look like a photographer with equipment versus a soldier with some type of weapons or ammo harness. The vest may not be able to be placed as well over bulky clothing. The vest can take on a few more items too. The vest is not hot, but will add another layer of cloth.

This is *exactly* what I've been needing! I have a very, VERY sensitive back/neck and just can not do back packs or over the shoulder packs. The least amount of pressure will result in migraines. This belt pack is the perfect option for me. It has great back support and lots of room for gear. I'll be using this belt for a photography trip out west this fall and am sure it will be the perfect way to carry my gear. Of course, LowePro products are always of the highest quality and durability and are top of the line.

This is a really amazing product. I would consider myself an amateur in photography but would still know a good product when I see it. The design is perfect and the feel is just right. Add to it the different pouches and you would have a very useful tool belt! along with the Lowepro harness it makes a perfect combo. Would highly recommend it for the photographer on the go!

This belt is remarkably comfortable, and will have uses well beyond just lugging photo gear. I plan to use it (with a few added pouches) for cycling--tools, food, spares, phone, and iPod will not only fit, but be safely accessible without my having to stop, or even stop pedaling.

I bought one of these, along with a few of their lens cases for event photography. I don't like carrying around two camera bodies, and this solution allows me to do <5 second lens changes. If you use the Lowepro lens cases, they have a double overlapping Velcro attachment, and they are so dang secure I bet I could mountaineer with them.

This thing is COMFORTABLE. Get it tight right above your hip bones, and your back will thank you.

Sizing: I couldn't find sizing info anywhere, so I bought the S/M. I have a 34in waste, and it's perfect for me. There is a lot of slack still in the belt, I bet it could fit up to 38in or so, but don't quote me.

My only gripe is there is no way of attaching an accessory that has a belt loop that does not open... i.e. like the Canon 70-200 2.8L case. I really wish they included at least a few loops that worked with these, and not just their proprietary system. However, their lens cases are so inexpensive that I can't really complain too much.
