: TWO NEW CREDENTIAL HOLDERS RELEASED!
For you sports and event photographers who need quick access to your credentials, smart phones, pens and other items, we just released two new credential holders. They are the Credential Holder V2.0
and the Credential Holder Tall V2.0
, which is designed to hold larger credentials.
The new credential holders feature large clear windows, multiple pockets, including a zippered pocket for business cards, and a belt attachment loop. They also have a wide, soft, adjustable neck strap, YKK zippers, a large pocket that holds most smart phones, another large front pocket underneath the flap and behind the credential area, two pen holders, and a credential area secured by hook and loop.
The all fabric exterior is treated with a DWR coating while the fabric underside is coated with PU for superior water resistance. They are made with 210D black nylon, 250D Shadow rip-stop nylon, clear PU, and 3-ply bonded nylon thread.
We don't think there's a more feature packed, robust credential holder on the market. We just couldn't stop adding features and we think you'll be hard pressed to find anything missing Specifications: Credential Holder V2.0
