    CP, where else? About $60 when last checked a couple of months back. Sizes usually limited.

    Seen a few in the B/S threads, should check there too.

    Thanks for the prompt response fellas.

    Hi Terrence, how are you. Still buying and selling good stuff? Hope to deal with you again when the opportunity presents itself.

    Need some feedback on the harness with reference to comfort and equipment accessibility. Anyone?

    Slowing down a little on the sales, getting a bit tired of it. you ready for a 17-35 soon?

    The $60 figure includes the belt (standard, not deluxe). You'd need the deluxe belt with the vest. I don't actually use it myself as I prefer my backpack or sling bag for a lighter load. Wearing one of those things just screams, "Photographer!". I prefer to be a little more discreet.

    Yes, CP has the widest range of Lowepro bags. Just bought a toploader from them 2 days ago. Good price without having to haggle (which I hate most)!

    Haha...will pass on the 17-35 for now. Already have the 12-24 to satisfy my craving on the wide end for digital. But will definitely think abt it when I resurrect the interest to shoot slide/film. Nonetheless, will be monitoring the stuff you put up for sale.

    I'm thinking of getting this harness when I get around on my bicycle to do photography. Or when I need to trek in more difficult terrain i.e. jungle/forrest etc. Not intenting to use it in crowded/built up areas i.e. Orchard Rd etc.

    Can't decide between getting this or a backpack ...but I guess each is different and serves different purposes.

    It's not all waterproof, depending on what you strap on to it so I wouldn't think it's going to be fully shielded from the elements when you use it for biking or hiking. Plus it's going to be quite warm wearing the vest. A good backpack for hiking is best, IMO. for biking, maybe look for a bicycle carrier which you can strap in front of the handle bars. I think the vest is useful for street work and not much else.

    Terence,

    Thanks for the advice. Will bear that in mind when I make my final decision.

    Any other personal experiences? Will like to hear about them.

    I've had a lady friend use one of these and its very difficult to 'fit' your body if you're below 1.6m tall...... recommend trying it out at the shop before you actually buy it

    It comes in various sizes so it does help to get one that fits you.
