Spider X Backpacker Kit


The Spider X Backpacker Kit is a versatile, multi-use carrying system that allows you to carry a light to medium weight camera with comfort and ease and is the perfect carrying solution for anyone looking for a strap-free system, and allows you to carry a mirrorless camera with comfort and ease, using any belt.

You can clip the Spider X Holster onto any belt, or clip it directly into the Backpack Adapter, and this change can be done in seconds!

Spider X Camera Holster

The Spider X Holster features a two-position, self-locking design for both security and quick access in any shooting situation. The holster will automatically lock when you pair it with one of our Spider camera plates. To unlock the holster, lift the lock lever upwards and remove your camera. For even faster access, you can disengage the lock by pressing the lock lever up until it clicks, it will remain unlocked until you push the lever back down into the self-locking position. Keeping it in the “unlocked” position keeps your camera secure and easily accessible for a quick draw.

Mirrorless Camera Plate
Light weight and durable, the Spider Mirrorless Camera Plate is designed for mirrorless cameras. The sliding plate design accommodates most mirrorless camera bodies and does not block the battery door. It attaches to the camera's 1/4"x20 tripod mount, and features anti-slip rubber pads for stable, secure install, and an anti-twist Spider pin for added security. The Spider Mirrorless Camera Plate has built-in compatibility for Arca-Swiss style tripods, and acts as an Arca Swiss tripod adapter. It can also be used with other style tripod adapter plates.

Spider Backpack Adapter
The Backpack Adapter fastens to your backpack's strap, or the front of the Adapter can be looped through any casual belt. The camera pad on the Backpack Adapter has an elastic velcro strap, this is used to secure the camera lens when not in use, preventing excessive camera bounce while also protecting against scuffing.

The Spider X holster can also be removed from the adapter and fastened to any belt for use on the hip. You can also use the entire Backpacker kit with any belt. 

  • The Backpack Adapter is compatible with SpiderLight or Spider X Camera Holsters and allows you to easily and securely clip your holster into the Backpack Adapter.

  • The Backpack Adapter is compatible with our AS2 (Arca Swiss) Adapter Plate, and our AS-RC2 (Arca Swiss / Manfrotto RC2) Adapter Plate. Attach the plate to your camera and slide it into Backpack Adapter as an alternative way to carry on the go!

We do not recommend moving the pre-installed Spider Pin.

We pre-install a pin into the right side with Loctite to ensure a secure hold. If a pin is required for carrying on the opposite side, we recommend purchasing an additional Spider Anti-Twist Pin and installing separately.


Are you using a Mirrorless Camera + Vertical Grip?
The Spider X Holster is not recommended to carry cameras with heavy professional lenses. If you are using a mirrorless camera with a vertical grip, or are using a heavy setup, we recommend our SpiderPro Holster Set instead.

As advertised and genuinely awesome (so far)

I bought this because I thought all those hipster Etsy leather dual camera holsters look silly and I wanted something much more flexible in terms of usability.

This checked all the boxes.

I took it on a light 4 mile hike and wondered how much I would have saved if I found this before buying Peak Design camera straps. The ball mount and the backpack strap attachment was able to securely hold my Sony a6300 + 70-300mm telephoto lense so I had full use of both of my arms while scrambling up steep inclines like a monkey.

The removable belt harness/mount is also incredibly secure and will serve perfectly as a quick swap system for a second camera body.

The only non-issue I have is that the holster is not made of metal which may potentially reduce the life of the hardware. "Non-issue" because I doubt that I'll be able to break it but I guess we'll see when I get a few proper shoots with this setup.

Steve Pulley
Holster great. Delivery costs extraordinarily expensive.

Well made and easier to use than my Peak Design alternative. Delivery fee to Australia was more than the original item, making it very expensive, hence the 4 star rating. Clamp very hard to open originally but worked out how to do it easily. Very easy to use.

Debi Holt
Pretty hard to get on & off.

This is, as all of the Spider gear I've purchased, well made & durable. My only reservation with it is that it fits so tight to itself that I can hardly get it apart. Not to even think of putting it on my pack strap.

Tomas Janonis

Love it!

Adam Franic
Tried, Tested, and True!

Extremely happy with this kit. Attached to my backpack with ease. The design is robust, convenient, and inherently helps prevent improper installation. The price is right (though I got killed on the shipping and Canadian import fees!) and the customer service was spot-on. My only complaint was a minor defect of the rubber pads on the base plate. The ends weren't completely flush and prevented me from flipping up my Sony Alpha A5000 screen. Nothing a utility knife couldn't fix, though! Will be keeping Spider in mind for future gear purchases.

SpiderX Backpack Adapter

Spider X Camera Holster


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

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!

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.

Simple, Safe, and Secure!

The SpiderX Holster is a rugged yet versatile piece of equipment, allowing you to easily clip it onto any belt! Your mirrorless / lightweight DSLR camera will remain safe at your hip on any trip with the holster’s easy to use 2 Position Lock!

If you’re going on longer hikes, we recommend checking out our SpiderX Backpacker Kit which allows you to attach it to any backpack or messenger bag strap, as well as harness a GoPro at the same time!

Mirrorless Camera Plate

Built-in Arca Swiss Tripod Profile!

The Spider Mirrorless Camera Plate has built in Arca-Swiss Geometry which allows it to mount to any of their tripod heads!
The plate also has a universal 1/4″-20 thread mount which will work with any regular tripod mount!

Designed for security.

The Spider Mirrorless Camera Plate is equipped with an extra 1/4"-20 connection for those looking to use an accessory tripod quick release plate.

The anti-rotation features and anti-slip pads keep your camera secure, and help prevent the plate from turning / loosening over a long period of use.

Designed to keep your battery door free!

The Spider Mirrorless Camera Plate’s mount can move left to right to fit your camera and allow you to maintain use of your battery door, and will not interfere when using an FTZ Adapter.

Are you a Nikon Z user?

The Spider Mirrorless Camera Plate was updated to seamlessly pair with all Nikon Z series cameras, with all lens configurations (with and without the FTZ Adapter).
