The Best Camera Suspension System.

After several months of use, the Backpacker Kit is the best. I mounted it on my Lowepro Sling pack and it fits perfectly. My G9 hangs at slight angle but makes my camera even more accessible. I enjoy my hikes much more now having a secure camera suspension system. I find it an absolute joy to use and now bring my camera everywhere since it is so convenient and not have to hand carry my camera.
Honestly, I wouldn’t settle for anything less and could not ask for a better system. Although more expensive than the others, it is well worth knowing my camera is secure and easy to access. Small investment for piece of mind for a $2500+ camera setup, don’t you think?
Get it. You won’t regret it.



Love my spider

I am an avid back country hiker and photographer. I have struggled with finding the best way to carry my camera on hikes and the spider holster is perfect. Easy to put on my pack, excellent, quick access to my camera and hands free hiking. I love it and recommend it wholeheartedly. What a great product!

Spider light back pack holster

I have several pieces of spider pro gear, hand strap is excellent all very good design and quality, this one is no exception - fits the backpack shoulder strap, or can be easily removed from its housing and worn as a belt holster

Good product and quick delivery

I had positive experience ordering the SpiderLight Backpacker Kit and SpiderLight Hand Strap.
Nice website, intuitive interface. My parcel was shipped quickly and arrived surprisingly fast. Thumbs up for delivery!
Although the Spider products are a bit expensive compared to other competitors, I must say the quality and ergonomics worth the price.

As a bonus, the kit also includes a GoPro adapter plate that allows you to connect any GoPro accessory. Capture live video and have your mirrorless camera at the hip ready

Spider Light Plate Moving Plate Description
Light Holster Pin Mobility

Secure Freedom of Movement.

Our patented ball-joint system gives your camera just enough freedom of movement so that it’s not rigidly bolted to your body. Your camera moves freely with you as you move. Your lens points backward allowing you to squat quickly with no worries, and your flash (if you use one) hangs parallel to your leg. No other camera holster offers this level of comfort.

Self-Locking Design

The Spider Light Holster features a self-locking design. The geometry of the holster and plate prevents the camera from moving up and out of the holster accidently.

Simply rotate upward while removing your camera for a fast release. This feature feels natural to the user, while providing an extra layer of security for your camera!
