H250 attached to long lens case (H130 is needed, but not shown).
Attached to each side of the harness is a pair of accessory “attachment straps.” It has both a male quick-release buckle (top) and snap hook (bottom). The buckle is compatible with the H717 & H675 harness. The snap hook is for attaching to the D-Rings.
By reversing the provided “attachment straps” on the harness (placing them over your shoulders instead of letting them hang down in front), you can convert a holster case into a backpack.
Use the H150 adapter to attach small pouches to the harness.
H250 + H160 in suspender mode (H245 similar but smaller) attached to a B107 waist belt. Note how it uses a 3-point attachment system. Also attached, in the center making a large “O”, is the H152 strap, for stabilizing your camera.
H255 (earlier models may have squared off bottom, but are functionally perfect).

H255 — Padded Backpack Harness

Converts a tripod bag or long lens case into a backpack. 

The H255 uses a new design feature that provides a fit for all torso heights, which is useful for those that share their backpack between differing heights of users or for those that are in-between sizes. Visit this page for sizing information.

  • Padded backpack-style harness constructed of thick 16mm (5/8") closed-cell foam.
  • Outside is covered on the top with nonabrasive water-repellent 400D nylon pack cloth.
  • Inside surface (which faces your body) is made from 3D mesh fabric, a soft Polyester moisture-wicking substrate.
  • 2-way adjustable sternum strap.
  • The new H255 does not come with straps for attaching a pouch or case to the front of your chest, but can be purchased separately. The H437 is for attaching a pouch or case with D-rings. The H436 is for attaching a naked DSLR (not in case) that utilizes the Kinesis quick-release system.
  • A H130 strap is recommended when used with a long lens case.

This harness functions in two modes:

  1. Backpack Mode—converts a tripod or long lens case into a backpack (this is primary design of this harness). The H160 “back” adapter is NOT needed here.
  2. Suspender Mode (the H344 is less bulky and just as comfortable). A “front & H160 back” harness is required and attaches to any padded Kinesis waist belt.

A waist belt (shown) is NOT required, but provides more stability. The front load or case invariably pulls down, which causes the back of the harness to go up.


H255: 280 g (10 oz.)
The length of padded portion of the H255 is 46cm (18").

Old long lens case users note: These harnesses will attach to all current long lens cases. It will not attach to pre-2000 model cases which include L300, L302, L400, L402, L600, L602 or L603.
