Overall Product Rating:     

I used the Digital Holster Harness along with the Digital Holster 40 V2.0 during a two-week backpacking trip in Patagonia. I experienced all kinds of weather conditions including rain, snow, 50mph winds and the thinkTank system worked flawlessly. I carried a Nikon D300s attached to a Nikon 18-200 lens. I incorporated the Pop Down feature to also carry my Tamron 10-24 wide lens in the bottom of the bag. I just added padding between the Nilon camera and attached lens and the Tamron lens. The included rain cover worked incredibly well and I used it a lot as during my 15 days on the trail I was continually subjected to either snow or rain. I also liked the top flap opening where I could store extra memory cards and the side and front pocket where I carried two filters. I would highly recommend the system to anyone looking for a convenient way to carry a camera while backpacking.

Really liked this harness in conjunction with a Digital Holster 50 v2.0. Used it for a month in Nepal without complaint ... comfortable, kept my camera handy AND secure, all while allowing me to put on and take off a pack without removing the camera bag.

I bought this harness to carry a new mirrorless camera hiking in the Maze in Utah for four days. I used it with the Digital Holster 10. It's a sophisticated product, very comfortable and offering fine protection for the camera (tested working up and down the Maze's demanding canyon entries). Thinktank makes great products. Still, it could use a few edits. (1) If you wear it with a shirt that has a collar it's fine, but if it's hot and you're wearing just a thin t-shirt, as I was, the upper edge of the rear mesh (across the neck) can rub you quite uncomfortably; the tough nylon is not soft. A fleece lining would help a lot. (2) The complex strap system secures the holster very well, but it's inconvenient to put on. It's easy for it to get twisted when you take it off after wearing it under a pack, and getting it back onto your back and re-fastened to the holster without a bit of a struggle (or without help from someone who can see your back) can be a challenge. There were times I delayed my companions, which was frustrating to them as well as to me. I suppose you could just never take it off, but improving the off/on process would be very welcome. Still, it provided excellent protection to the camera in very demanding terrain. Note: it does change your balance and chest clearance significantly, having weight and bulk on both front and back and not just on the backpack. I'm used to carrying a Nikon D800 with the 28-300 on a chest harness from Nimrod -- which offers convenience but no protection at all, and requires always keeping a hand on the camera. The Fuji cut the weight in half, but I kept bumping the camera case on things, and once very nearly fell badly. Having the camera a the chest vs. having the case at the chest proved very different experiences. My instincts about body awareness and clearance did not adjust immediately or completely, and the harness encourages you to think the camera/case will take care of itself. Once it's fully sealed up that's true, and these mishaps were my fault, not the harness's, but you need to be extra careful in a partly new way in tricky conditions. It's a bit disorienting. Still, I'll certainly keep carrying it until they improve it, and then likely buy another; once on, it's a great piece of equipment for photography hiking. I'll probably try to get a tailor to sew a fleece protector of some kind onto the neck piece.

Really like the digital holsters, I'm on my second one now. However, I liked the original harness much better than the present V2 harness, so I continued using the old harness with the new holster. However, my wife, who also has a holster, prefers the V2 harness. I wish the company would make the original harness available again.
