K-Tek Harness customization
Simon Paine posted a topic in EquipmentJust wanted to do a little followup on my K-Tek Harness. I've been using it for quite a while now and I'm still loving it. The rigid spine has been amazing for my back. I've also recently been taking advantage of the MOLLE webbing that is stitched into the harness. I wanted to avoid having to bring a backpack with me while working, so I sourced some pouches from Maxpedition. I use the upper middle pouch for wet weather gear and/or spare XLR. The two square hip pouches are a nice fit. I can fit 1 slim V-mount in one of them and the other I keep mic accessories,tape etc. I also got 2 "Rolli Polli" pouches from Maxpedition. In this upper photo you can see them when they are rolled up and stowed, but as you can see on the lower picture, the quickly open up into a large catch all pouch. The smaller one on the right is perfect size for a water bottle or to stow a shotgun mic with a Softie. The larger one at the back is perfect for at the end of the day when taking back wireless mics or IFB's and you just need to stash them somewhere until you get back to your vehicle. Overall I've been really happy with the K-Tek Harness. Pros: Rigid Spine for back support, MOLLE webbing for attaching pouches, ventilated shoulder straps, 6 attachment points to your mixer for weight distribution. Cons: only had one issue with the harness, the front sternum strap is attached to the shoulder straps via two plastic connectors that allow you to slide it up and down to fit. I've had the strap slip all the way down and completely off the harness on a several occasions and getting it back on is tricky. Maybe on a future update they can add a little stitching to the bottom of the sliding strap to prevent it from slipping off. But having said that, it's a small issue when compared to the many benefits of the harness. For those interested, Maxpedition is having a clearance sale. Many of the pouches I use and lots more are on sale right now. http://www.maxpedition.com
