We also supply production companies and dealers with orders for 10 or more from our UK base, or, of course, ship, with larger orders for rigs and the like.
The launch video explains the concept, more sizes have been launched since the video however (see table below)

- this chart is for the Nikon 70-200VR-1, the VR2 may be a little larger.
The HIR FAT strap is for lenses that have a long focus travel – many can be locked together using the ‘ears’ on the straps
And a vid showing the FAT strap..
We also make the ‘Wide Open Camera’ lens gear, this gear is 280mm long and 15mm wide – available in the USA
