Cotton Carrier system - love it!

Is there any good solution for preventing strain on your neck due to carrying a camera with heavy lenses all the time? I carry an A7r2 and a 35mm Distagon and a Samyang 135mm F2 frequently. I am getting very frequent torticollis since.

Is there a good way to carry such a set up?

I am considering Peak Design's Capture Pro and a Lowe Pro belt though I am not sure both are compatible.


I've used the Cotton Carrier system for many years. I often shoot with 2 Nikon DSLR bodies each with a lens mounted. All of the weight is on my shoulders and chest. When carrying both rigs, I have hands-free movement and no weight / strain on my neck and very quick, easy access to either rig.

I use the CC Vest for my main shooting rig and the CC Strap Shot is attached to my right backpack strap D-loop for my 2nd rig. A simple 1/4 twist and the camera lens combo is removed from the "slot".

These are very rugged, well made accessories from Cotton Carrier.

Vest... I have one of their older models. Here is their latest vest...

Here is their Strapshot product...

Good luck finding something that suits your needs.
