Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as large as advertised.This pack is marketed as a “DSLR” pouch, and says “Made to fit all but the oddest camera bodies with a 24-70mm lens attached.” Nikons are very standard DSLRs, and mine doesn’t fit with that exact 24-70mm lens, even if I take off the lens cap. The lid won’t close. Very disappointing for something I paid $100 for and had shipped to me. I even looked at the precise measurements and set them against my camera setup, but the measurements are off—smaller than the actual pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Piece of GearThis item is obviously a niche piece of gear. Similar to a pistol holster there are a lot of ways to do this but Mystery Ranch has a solid and well constructed piece of gear that meets the requirements with simplicity and practicality. The internal pouch is adjustable and has enough flexible room with adjustment to the two pads inside. My FujiFilm X-T4 fits just fine. The outer pocket is great for cleaning cloths, lens caps, extra memory cards etc. Overall a decent design at a good price without over engineering. The harness could use some refinement but again not an issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well madeI bought this recently hoping it could give me more flexibility with my DSLR. I generally shoot wildlife with a long lens, 100-400 on a canon 7D MKII with a 1.4 multiplier. Unfortunately for that much lens is about 3” too much. The rig itself is well made and sits in an easy to reach location on my chest and it has two adjustable tabs to cushion the camera body on the interior. It would work fantastic for a shorter lens, maybe the 28 - 135, but try as I might it just doesn’t quite work for my rig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what I needed for my DSLRI have been looking for a harness for my DSLR that was similar to my bino rig. This is exactly what I needed. The weight distribution of the camera and lens is exactly like my bino and range finder set up. easy to switch back and forth. I have not used the straps that allow me to connect to my pack yet, but they look like they are going to be very useful when I am on long trips with the pack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overpriced piece of gearI've been an amateur photographer for many years (and an amateur hunter for a few years) and have tried all different types of camera bags and straps. Honestly, there's nothing remarkable about this rig, and it's definitely not worth the price, in my opinion. I recently took it elk hunting in Colorado, using it in conjunction with my Selway 60 pack. The straps that connect this rig directly to the backpack's shoulder straps initially seem like a clever design, but several flaws became very apparent, very quickly in the field: (1) The rig still wobbled a fair amount as I was hiking up and down the mountain and climbing over rocks and logs - there's no good way to cinch down those connector straps. (2) There's an included stabilizer strap that's designed to be used in conjunction with the aforementioned connector straps. It wraps around the torso, so to put it on, you have to weave it between the backpack and your back. Needless to day, it was a giant pain to do so, especially with a full load of gear/meat. Additionally, if I wanted to take my pack off, I had to unclip one side of torso stabilizer strap, as well as one of the shoulder connector straps. Then I could finally unbuckle my backpack's sternum strap and take off everything. In other words, it was cumbersome to put on and take off everything, and I became the guy that everyone else was always waiting on to get situated. (3) I would be willing to put up with points 1 and 2 if this chest rig were amazing, but it's nothing more than a plain vanilla pouch for the DSLR, with a few measly side and front pockets. As other reviewers have pointed out, you can barely fit anything in the side pockets (maybe a small bottle of wind detector, or a lens cap, or maybe a pretty leaf as a souvenir). The front zippered pocket is pretty small as well, and I could barely squeeze an extra camera battery in there. All in all, I was pretty disappointed with this rig, and I'm sending it back ASAP.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thumbs up!I’ve used this harness for several outings now and it hold what I need it to. Big enough to hold my 80D and 35mm lense/18-135mm. Has plenty of pockets for extra batteries and memory cards. It’s a pretty solid case. Thumbs up Mystery Ranch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality ProductLove that MR came out with a camera case. Its a little on the big size. like XL size. If they could do a Large/ Medium size, that would be perfect to throw in a pack. Definitely takes up a good amount of space in a pack. Quality product none the less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bino harnessI love my MR pack and bino harness so I thought I'd give the DSLR Chest Rig a shot. Overall, it is built extremely well and is very functional. Great way to safely and comfortably carry your camera
