Universal Camera Balance Pockets

The Photographer's Solution! Combining the Aarn Universal Camera Balance Pockets with any Non-Aarn pack solves the frustrations of current camera bags.

Camera backpacks need to be taken off to access camera gear and front camera bags that hang via a strap around your neck cause neck discomfort.

Aarn Universal Camera Balance Pockets give you the instant camera access of other front camera bags while providing many of the benefits of the Aarn Packs System, while using your current non-Aarn pack. 

They work on the same principles as our Aarn Balance Pockets, offering increased energy efficiency, strain relief and convenient access. 

Will they work on my pack? They are thoughtfully designed to fit any brand of backpack that uses a hip belt and shoulder straps. 

Aarn Universal Camera Balance Pockets are attached to the pack once you have put the pack on and are unclipped before you take the pack off. 

How do I attach to my current pack? Firstly, while not wearing the pack, secure the top two detachable clips to the shoulder straps above the sternum strap area. You can keep the top parts of the buckles attached to your pack permanently.

For everyday use, put your pack on, clip in the top buckles, and then tuck the bottom bracket behind your hip belt and use the velcro in front of the hip belt to secure it. 

How do I remove the pockets? Undo the velcro to remove the hip belt attachment and unclip the top buckles. Leave the top part of the buckles on your pack for easy putting on and off.
