About

SLINGBELT the world’s most comfortable, versatile carrier for cameras, lenses, binoculars and extra gear.

The SlingBelt sits comfortably on your hips thanks to its ergonomic design. Load the belt up with one or more cameras. Plus carry a lens or two in the Lens Bucket. This versatile system is ready for your next active shooting session.

The advantage of the SlingBelt is its fixed-position carrying system. Our patented Twist & Lock mount secures a camera or binoculars to your hip. Add a second mount with a side holster if you’d like. A quick twist and your camera is quietly deployed. Want to access your camera faster? The included Sling Tether allows your camera to hang for instant shooting.

Customize the system by adding a lens bucket (or two)! Big enough for larger lenses and great for other items as well. Need rain protection? Our DryBags are engineered to fit and clip into the bucket for a secure carry.








The system all starts with the SlingBelt. This ergonomically designed Belt sits comfortably and distributes the weight of your gear to your hips. Say goodbye to upper body fatigue and eliminate a sore neck and shoulders.



We include a Sling Tether with every SlingBelt. It acts as a safety tether for your camera, and a comfortable neck strap when you let your camera hang. It also allows for instant shooting when hanging and not locked into the camera mount. When ready,  mount your camera back to the SlingBelt so you again have both hands free.


The SlingBelt is the carrier for the system. Add a Lens Bucket (or two) to the Belt. Great for lenses, flash, water bottle, or whatever. Using a second camera? Add a holster as well to complete your SlingBelt system. Everything will remain always at your fingertips and ready when you need it.


Studio and Location: Keeping your hands free is always a big advantage, especially in the middle of a busy shoot. It’s great to have gear right at your fingertips. SlingBelt and Bucket System provides a decrease in delays when grabbing the next camera or lens.


Event and outdoor photographers often work in poor weather conditions. In the case that the weather calls for rain, snow or other elements, we have developed waterproof bags. Two sizes of DryBag will protect lenses and other items on wet days. The bags fit the lens bucket and can be clipped-in if needed. The Bucket will drain water from the bottom when conditions are especially wet.
 



With the Everything Bracket, simply wrap the Velcro strap around binoculars, a small tripod or other equipment. The built-in twist & lock hub mounts to the SlingBelt and your hands are still free to help climb the mountain ahead.





 Andy Cotton (second from left) designed the original Cotton Carrying System with a dedication to functionality and 100% reliability, the same qualities required to ensure his success as a special effects supervisor in the film industry. He has designed physical effects including cars crashing, people hanging off buildings - the rules were simple, nothing could fail.  

In 2005 Andy applied that thinking and set out to design the Cotton System. It had to be simple, without springs or moving parts. Nothing that could fail, jam or break. It had to be made with the highest quality materials and be absolutely reliable in all situations. It had to provide comfort and accessibility in order to improve the photographic experience. “It took five years, but enthusiastic feedback from satisfied customers around the world make me think I got it right. Simple, functional, high quality - that describes Cotton’s System.”


 Bringing SlingBelt and Bucket System to Life

We need help with the opening order - that is where you come in! Your participation will enable us to bring the SlingBelt and Bucket System to market. Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

With every launch of a new product there are struggles with manufacturing, quality of materials, quality of workmanship. Cotton Carrier has worked through all of these growing pains already and we have a great relationship with our factory and strive to only use the best available materials. Durable Kodra Synthetic Canvas, Utech clips, YKK Zippers - nylon 6, and anodized aluminium hubs are just a few of the quality materials that go into every unit that we produce.
