I had the original belt my dad purchased for me as a gift. Several years ago and I used it every single day. Never wore out after years of use. I had a car wreck (totaled) our of town and it was in my car and disappeared after it was towed and sat in a lot for over a week. So I had to replace the original belt. Only difference is the sentiment the original had being a gift from my dad. Just as amazing years later!!
Perfect for a small mirror less camera. Makes it easy to grab your camera to shoot!
Excellent Quality, Good Price
Spider Monkey Kits
I am in love with everything. The functionality, the fit, the appearance are all superb. Wonderful addition to my studio.
Version 2 improvements .I have the CanonEOS R and the first version did not fit but the V2 is perfect!!!I LOVE IT
I bought a second one
thank you to fix it for the R
Without using a step-down adapter I had to mount the lens plate backwards to use on the Sigma 60-600, but working fine and balance seems okay.
As with all the Spider gear I have this one is rock solid too. Well designed. Can't wait to use it.
I loved the first version! Version 2 improvements hit all the right spots. I’m buying a second one!
The spider holster is a very good item
I bought this for a Sony A7R( infrared converted) camera with small zoom or prime. I use it with a Spider Light holster set-up. It is perfect for hikes, bikes, and carrying around without upper body strain! This attractive grip seems quite strong, allows battery and SD's to be dealt with comfortably. (I also bought the Version 2 larger grip for a bigger Sony mirrorless, which is even nicer for a larger camera and zoom lens!)
I love the holster! It is comfortable and the weight on hips is so natural. I love how durable it is as well, highly recommend!
Excellent build quality, have spider on all my cameras
I had some difficulty getting all three of the buttons to snap. I tried the extenders, so hard to do!
Also, I’m using a RRS L-bracket on my Nikon Z7, and the only way to make the angles work was to move the bottom of the strap across the battery door. That means I have to loosen the screw for the L-bracket each time to change battery. Sigh. It’s worth it though. I know it will take awhile to get used to this, and have it form to my small hand.
Works fine: holds a water bottle. Button placement makes it impossible to draw one handed with a reasonably sized reusable bottle. Also it would be nice if there were some non stick rubber or material inside the bottle holder so that the bottle wouldn't slip out as easily. Finally the bottle holder should be a bit bigger to accommodate reusable bottles.
The Spider Holster is simple to use - picking up the camera is an easy move and placing the camera in the holster is even easier. The camera sits horizontal with the lens facing backward so it does not bump on your leg and brush, etc., you are walking by does not do any damage. Much better for your shoulders and neck vs conventional straps, especially with a heavy lens.
I love everything about this, easy to put on my camera. Love that I can use it on a tripod with out removing. My only problem is I have smaller hands, so its not very comfortable for me to snap my shot. The top of it is in the way of my finger so I end up putting my arm/wrist in awkward position so my finger to push the button.

I have a 100x400 and a 200x600 Sony lens. I bought my first Spider Holster kit for two lenses from Adorama and they came with version 1 of the Lens Collar Plates and both were set up for the right sided holster. I was unable to move the pins to the left. Found out later that they use locktight. Ruined one of the plates and complained with a bad review at the Spider site (which wasn't posted last time I checked). Was contacted by Spider and got the version two's at a 20% discount along with two of the leather hand grips. The new plates are great. The old plates, not so much.
Love my new spider holster carries my %D and large lenses with no problems comfortable to walk with when I’m shooting wild life
Perfect, as always.
Use as RC2 and it works great.
After being in a car accident 5 years ago, my neck, shoulder, and lower back have never been the same. And I’m 27! I loved my holdfast harness for so long. But because of my pain, it wasn’t the best for me on long wedding days. The spider dual holster is amazing! Definitely recommend for anyone who has upper body pain. I will mention that it can put a lot more pressure on your knees. I am currently running a lot so hopefully that helps strengthen my muscles!
I have been using the Spider Holster at weddings for around 4 years. The new plate doesn't slip or move because of the rubber surface they added to the portion that comes into contact with the camera.
