HoldFast… A brand that fits perfect in what i’m looking for. The style, the design, the touch, the smell… Even when i received the Moneymaker i didn’t wanted to open it. But i had too…

It’s been a while form the first time i talked with Matthew Swaggart, the founder of FoldFast. I remember reading his about section:
Taste: Things must look right.
Logic: Things must make sense.
Faith: Because logic takes us only so far… and then we must leap.
When someone believes in these words, then the results are speaking for themselves…
or:
Go. Forgive. Make mistakes. Learn. Capture history. 
All this for me is an inspiration for my work and believe me, many times i get inspired from things around me that are not related to photography.

Packaging
The Moneymaker comes with hand crafted packaging style. I really love this way of demonstration, Recycled paper, leather skipping rope around it and a small card with just the logo, mail & site…

This time my desire to use it and make the review was so strong that i could’t wait by the time i finally received it… I can’t tell you how i felt when i test it with my two camera bodies. It’s really cool & the leather as a material fits perfect on the shoulders. Also something that struck me is that the weight of the two full frame bodies is shared so good through the Moneymaker on my body, and in a photoshoot of 8 – 10 hours did not bother me at all.

Material Quality
The combination of steel & leather is all the concept in this double strap. You can choose from 4 different types of leather. This one is Water Buffalo, & i love it’s brown color.

Design
My style of photography is like photojournalism and every time I want to be unnoticed so i can capture spontaneous moments. There where times that i was uncomfortable with similar double straps… but now its unique design makes people around me to watch it as something special.

Safety
Every time i use something new for my gear the first thing i notice is safety. My camera body with the lens on it is something very expensive and the last thing I want is to damage it with a hit or fall.
The Moneymaker make me feel so safe when i use it. The good quality of leather in combination with the large metal rings can hold up to 12 pounds!

In this review i didn’t want to focus on technical details. I believe that the aesthetics and design of the Moneymaker speaks for itself. I can’t imagine myself working without it in a photoshoot… It is a part of my basic gear and i think that the whole kit of HoldFast Gear is something that every photographer should be aware of!
