Product Description

The Bridle leather MoneyMaker is made from U.S. native steer hides, anchored stainless steel d-rings/hardware (no rust), safety straps for ultimate security and impeccably versatile design make this an essential tool for the modern photographer. Secure your cameras and important gear where it's most accessible and comfortable-right on you. This leather is strong, waxy and weather-resistant. With this buffed back leather, the bottom side has a suede-like feel, and will shed a little at first use. This stops very quickly, even using your hand and running it the length of the strap will knock away the loose shavings and it will not continue. We at HFG use REAL full grain leathers. As such, each hide will display the unique life that the animal lived showing scars from brands, barbed-wire cuts, stretch marks, insect bites, marks from birthing and even natural wrinkles, etc. One of the beauties of leather is that no two cowhides are alike, because each hide comes from animals that have lived different lives! These scars are not "defects" in the leather, but instead, proof that we actually use real full grain leather which is the absolute BEST leather money can buy. We do not throw out good hides because of scars, rather we embrace these natural markings as part of the story, to which you will now add to. So if you happen to receive a MoneyMaker or one of my products with a scar or brand in the leather, know that you now own a 1-of-a kind piece. The Money Maker is built to last a lifetime and on all day shoots in any location-a movie set, wedding, urban jungle, or the wild wild west. EVERY MONEYMAKER IS MADE LOCALLY, RIGHT HERE IN OKLAHOMA! Each MoneyMaker comes with EVERYTHING you need to shoot with two cameras including Sliders, safety catches & 2 Camera HoldFasts.

Avoid at all cost. Find something that actually locks shut.

Worst strap ever. The only thing on this that's decent is the leather. I've had cameras fall multiple times now, and the most recent broke my 14-24 f/2.8. Not happy, and very upset that I'm a few days past my return option.

Not very useful, has lots of flaws.
by AF. (1 out of 5 stars)

I've owned mine for over a year. Used it mostly in weddings. There are several issues with this harness.
#1 its very noisy, as you walk around church specially the metal makes screeching noises. Or noise that you would hear from an old hinge. There's no way to "oil" this.
#2 There's barely enough "length" to be able to hold the camera near your face. Its tight.
#3 As its getting older the leather that is in contact with your clothing started to shed. So my black shirts will have bits of tan leather making you look less that neat.

Thank you I hope this helps people decide.

Looks and Feels Amazing!
by S. Hardy (5 out of 5 stars)
October 19, 2018

I love this product for it's durability and beautiful looks! I've watched the YouTube reviews on this and the Spider Holster and decided on the HoldFast. I had to make the big jump over the fabric straps which I still have as backups but the HoldFast is very comfortable to wear and makes the weight shift easier even when only toting one camera.

Con: The one big issue I am having is the metal rings that glide across both sides of the leather straps to allow you to move your camera around freely seems to get caught on my clothing quite a bit. I have been shooting weddings primarily so not like I am wearing baggy clothing (button up shirts or polo shirts). It seems to catch the fabric and does not come free unless I am using both hands to maneuver either camera which causes an issue when trying to catch "a moment".

All and all, it is a solid piece of gear for any serious photographer out there.

I LOVE the classic look!
by Frank_the_Tank (5 out of 5 stars)

What a stunning piece of equipment! The leather has a nice finish and is extremely sturdy...well, that will be tested on Saturday. I dropped the cash on this one because it was such a classic looking harness. I didn't like the other 'tactical' looking options, although some might say THEY like it better because...but for me, I like to portray more of a classic vibe when I'm on a job. I just had some button ups embroidered with my logo and with this harness this should warrant some attention...and my work isn't too shabby either. HA! Professionalism at its finest with this. I would have like to have ordered the American Bison Black version, but that was a little more than I had set aside for straps/harness this year. Happy so far. I'll get back to you after this weekend.

And for those of you wondering if this came with the additional catch straps...yes!

Update 5/4/15: I've had 3 shoots with this since I purchased it. The first use was a little frustrating as the leather, being new and all, was rubbing off on my black shirt leaving fragments of leather all over my shirt. Sure, it was the natural leather doing what it does. Does that change my mind about it, no! But let that be a warning to you for the first time of using it. Also, be mindful of the possibility of the slide catching your shirt. Again, not a big deal! Still love it. I get a lot of compliments too!

I'm 5'11 and average build, but I thought the regular size runs way too small even when i changed the belt straps to the very last hole. Sent it back and ordered the Large one, but had to spend extra since the only Large they had in stock was the 3 camera set up. :( Wish they had more photos on here of people wearing the harness to gauge the size better I need a little better.

Nice But Not the Best Choice
by Catherine F. Summers (2 out of 5 stars)
December 3, 2017

The MoneyMaker is certainly a nice leather harness, but it doesn't work well for my predominant types of photography. Unlike the Black Rapid, there are no stops to limit the travel, which is a real problem when moving through rough country, climbing rocks or fences, etc. I also realized that between the outdoors and shooting around pools or in rivers and streams the leather is a poor choice for the straps.

Functionality and style with a few snags
by LostJohnny (4 out of 5 stars)
June 28, 2014

Pros: will hold 2 cameras as comfortably as 2 cameras can be held, reduces a wide profile so you don't have to walk sideways between tables, forces you to keep your back straight and reduces weight of gear, VERY stylish: potential clients will approach you to start conversations, so it makes you more "accessible" to people.

Cons: after long wear for a wedding, it irritates skin around armpits, but this goes away with repeated wear. The slide motion will snag on your shirt and occasionally pinch skin. Forget lying on the floor to take a shot, it can be done but takes some planning, squatting however, works just fine. Hinges make a squeaking sound.

The cons sound daunting, however the pros outweigh the cons in the field. The swagger of the strap is a HUGE pro. People will just walk up to you and start talking about your set-up which leads to eventual talk about your services. In addition, it makes you look like James Bond as opposed to Batman with other straps with the same functionality.

Keep your old straps. They'll come in handy when 1 camera is needed. This strap should only be used for dual cameras. It's very unbalanced with one camera. Despite the vanity of this strap, it does have a lot of functionality.

Gets you all the shots
by Benjamin C. (4 out of 5 stars)

Used it a few times on shoots. Looks amazing, and the detachable "quick release" clips are nice. Feels safe having my cameras handing on there. Leather bleeds out though - so watch what you wear. Needs to be worn in a bit. It's thick (which is good) but also may cut into your shoulders a bit if it's not worn in yet.

Hip and functional harness
by Maggie Brown (5 out of 5 stars)
March 13, 2018

I LOVE this harness so much. Functional and easy to use and handle 2 cameras with ease. I pull back and forth between the 2 sides quickly and efficiently without trouble. And it looks super cute and cool! My only complaint is that if you have long hair, you absolutely have to wear it up. If you have any hair down, it will get caught in the back of the harness and is impossible to detangle (I've had to rip hair out). I just wear my hair fully up and it's fine.

One of the rings that screws into the camera was missing, so I had to use one from an old tripod, plus the thing came a part the first time I wore it. I've now put it back together. It does look good, but for the price I would expect it to be top notch, which it isn't.
