Grey Skout G2 - For Camera - Sling Style Harness

SKOUT the world's most comfortable, secure, and accessible, Sling-Style camera or binocular harness. SKOUT holds your camera close to your body. Nothing moves around. Active humans take note–SKOUT is ergonomically designed to hug your core. Comfortable and snug. Your gear can be instantly and quietly deployed. The advantage to the SKOUT harness is its fixed-position carrying system. Our patented Twist & Lock mount secures your camera to your chest. SKOUT offers great stability and weight distribution, at the same time keeping your optics accessible.

While the Skout can handle any weight a camera system can provide we recommend small to medium sized set ups. For larger DSLR with battery grip and telephoto the G3 Harness system is best suited.

    Awesome Carrier

    I recently purchased the G2 for a trip hiking the canyons in Utah. I have a Canon 5DM4, mostly used the 24-70mm lens and also carried a 70-200mm lens without any issues. It was great not to worry about the camera swinging on the strap and having two free hands when negotiating the trails. Highly recommended.

    Best Ever!

    I couldn't be more pleased with my Cotton Carrier. It lives up to everything it says. I hike alot and it takes the pressure off my neck and arms. No more holding the camera so it doesn't bounce. Always available to quickly release and take a picture.

    Finally a top notch product. Don't hesitate to get this!

    Changed my Life

    I was gifted this product and it has literally changed my photography life. I no longer have my heavy camera on my neck, and, it has made difficult hiking easier with two hands free. I’ve even taken it horseback riding. Highly recommend.

    Very functional, good value

    I have a D7000 with a Tamron 18-270 attached (~1.14kg). I have the Harness which I love, but it is a bit much going through security in many public facilities. I saw the Skout as a good alternative for these in and out situations. It is? My biggest dislikes are to much elastic in the body straps and no lens hold down strap. I suppose that in reality, if the camera comes out of the socket on its own, you may have bigger problems to deal with. I have the CCS hand strap on the camera, making a nice combination that beats any neck or sling strap.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I use the tripod or quick release?

    The hardware has a tripod holed milled into it for tripod use. If you use quick release we recommend the Universal Tripod Adapter Plate or Universal Arca Swiss L-Bracket.

    Return Policy

    30 day no questions asked returns and 3 year technical warranty.

    Does the system work for large telephotos like a 600mm?

    The carrier will not fail under the weight of your camera/lens setup. A 600mm will place your weight forward and for some, it becomes a bit awkward. The system will not fail, but it becomes a subjective matter of comfort.

    Can I add another camera or binocular holster after?

    Yes, we offer a modular side holster with camera or binocular hardware. Or the individual hardware for camera or binoculars can be purchased independently.

    Can I put my camera into the binocular carrier's receiver? Or vice versa?

    All hardware uses the same twist and lock system, so you can place your camera or binoculars interchangeably in any receiver.
