"Because of my work in extreme environments I have consistently relied on the CCS G3 Grey Harness 1 (and the older no longer available original harness) for over ten years. The hub is fantastic! I love that the rain cover is at the ready and that I can even carry my phone or other items such as money close to hand in the mesh pocket. I have worn this in every weather condition imaginable from cold and wet to hot and wet! I am often working in places that have no trails or paths and having this harness system has not only saved my neck (literally and figuratively) but also made it so easy to scramble up difficult or uneven terrain without worrying about my gear hitting a rock or me losing my balance with a swinging camera strap. I am most grateful for this system over so many others that just didn’t fit my body or function in a way that I needed it to."
