M10 Holster - Need "bag/holster" for ski photography

Recommended Posts

Looking for people who have skied with an M camera and what small holsters/bags they use. Saw the M10 Holster today and wanted to know peoples experience with it. Last year slung M10 over my shoulder under my coat and it kinda worked in Expert terrain/chutes but would like something that keeps it on my chest (no boucing around) yet easy to pull out. Classic Lowepro sling is to BIG. Ideas? Feedback.

Good luck. Seriously, consider a padded holster. I had a bicycle accident while wearing my M9 snug to my left side chest and cracked ribs. You know how troublesome that is.

Padded would be better! Skiing in powder makes the infrequent  "hard" falls softer but I totally agree a padded holster is my preferred path as not every day is a powder day. The Leica Holster looks to be urban focused not back country

Hopefully nothing wrong with the M9?

It was generally trashed. Thanks to a good word forward when I sent it to NJ for repair, it came back as good new in three weeks, maybe better than new - all at my expense of course

I own the Leica Holster and like it very much. But for a very dynamic situation like skiing it lacks a fixation at the hip by belt or so. I also think It sounds somehow risky for the cam and for yourself. I would prefer a backpack even if it is inconvenient.

A perfect holster for extreme activities would include a semi-rigid back to distribute shock over a reasonably wide area. I doubt anyone makes such as thing but looking at Motocross protection might provide a clue.

Ah, never mind. Such would require new invention to maintain the freedom of movement you require. Very, very best of luck!

Thanks Pico. Steve, I've skiid with a backpack for years and years and getting  on/off the chairlift where you have to sling it around to your front plus digging around for the camera is why I'm thinking front holster. I may end up once again with my backpack if nothing pops up
