Summary

This is a must-have for any hikers with a DSLR camera.

Pros

  • Frees up hands while hiking
  • Camera is quickly accessible but securely locked in place when not in use

Cons

  • Price

I picked up one of these a few months ago and have used it extensively on my backpack, daypack, and baby backpack. It works perfect for my Nikon D90 and kit or wide angle lens. 

Instead of hand carrying or putting your SLR around your neck, you can securely strap it to your backpack. With this setup the camera is quickly accessible so you won't miss a shot fumbling for your camera. The camera locks into the holder and comes out if you rotate the camera 90 degrees and pull it up towards your head.

It requires an included adapter hub that screws into the tripod screw. The adapter has a tripod screw pass through so it is still compatible with a tripod. Contrary to their directions specifying using a D ring on your pack, I was able to strap it to all 3 different packs mentioned above using each pack's existing tension buckles.
