Sometimes people debate as to whether or not they should take their camera harness hiking. After all, the less things you can take with you out on the trail, the better. At least, usually that’s the case. There are some exceptions. Obviously, people need water when they hike. Those without water would have a difficult hike to finish. While it’s not fun to carry water, it’s still necessary and worth it. It’s also necessary and worth it to bring a camera harness for hiking for several reasons as well.
For instance, it’s not very heavy, so you wouldn’t even notice a difference. More importantly, it can help to carry your camera for you so that your hands are free to touch other things and climb. Another great reason no one should ever hesitate to bring a camera harness hiking is that they protect cameras. Cameras are expensive and hold precious memories. Anything that anyone can do to protect them is well worth the effort. This increases the probability of a better experience, shots not being missed, safety for the equipment and an all around better experience. Indeed, it’s amazing what a little strapping system can do to help people to better enjoy their camera harness hiking experience.
