    I have the Holdfast duel strap in leather and love how it functions. I wanted the single camera strap when it was announced but couldn’t pull the trigger. I checked out some videos on the Black Rapid and in all honesty liked the functionality of their single cam strap better than Holdfast. After a short few days of trying it out I am very impressed with how it works and the comfort of it. It’s a keeper for less than half the price of the Holdfast. My Holdfast is still king of the double cam straps.

    Almost Awesome

    Life changer! Used to hate carrying the camera with the normal sling, it’s a neck breaker! Since I brought this, my trip changed drastically.. it’s an amazing travel body, allows longer hours and the grip is almost perfect.. it just gets a while to get used to how to carry it, and sometimes the extra security shoulder part slips especially with the winter Myers... other than that I’d say it’s almost perfect.

    This product was recommended by one of the associates. At first I was hesitant but figured I would give it a try. It was easy to attach to my camera and strap on. It held my camera at my side while i hiked through the trails at Mt. Ranier. I never had to worry about it and when i wanted to take a photo i just slide it up the strap focused and snapped. More than i would like to spend, but in the end well worth it.

    Good strap for disbursing camera weight.

    This strap does a great job of disbursing my cameras weight. My only issue with it is that I find that the strap that connects the back to the front (under the armpit) comes detached too easily. I wish the hook was a bit more stable or fixed on one end. When it is on it is very secure. I just find it comes off easy when I am transferring it on and off.

    This sling is awesome for when you want to move around and not have your camera flopping everywhere. It is easy to pull the camera up to your eye without the strap getting in the way as it slides smoothly. I strongly recommend purchasing a tether strap with this just to make sure your camera doesn't smash to the floor if the sling system somehow fails (only ~$8)

    This shoulder strap has distribute my camera weight which I have a canon 80d w/24-70mm lens and by the end of the day I was not as tired as the one I replaced. if you're a beginner I say but this one and you'll never going to feel the neck burn or cutting of you're shoulder from long day event.

    Best strap I’ve ever owned

    I’ve owned a lot camera straps over the years but this by far the most comfortable one yet! The stay put clips really useful when I’m out hiking the trails. And when I spot something worthy of photographing it takes only a second to move it out of the way and get the shot.

    Great alternative to around the neck strap.

    This strap goes over your left shoulder and the camera is on your right hip. This model has a 'keeper' strap that goes under your left arm to hold the strap in place. The padding is enough for even a camera with large telephoto lens. For me this is a total of 6 lbs but it is still comfortable. I never use the strap that comes with the camera.

    I've had a Black rapid strap before and this one is much improved. It doesn't slip around as much and it secured better with an under arm strap. it's thinner and more comfortable on the shoulder when I'm carrying a big camera around. I did not realize this was a left or right shoulder version.

    Recently walked a couple miles each way to shoot an airshow with my Nikon D750 and attached Nikon 200-500mm lens . Would've had to see a chiropractor with a regular neck strap! Very convenient to use the camera with this strap, and easy to walk around with as well.

    Great shoulder stray. Keeps camera secure. Would have given it 5 stars but it is not designed to be used with a Swiss Arca plate on the camera. Fortunately my Swiss Arca plate had a small ring on the screw so I was able to attach with the hook.

    I’m so happy with this camera strap. It makes taking my DSLR much easier to use. I like the way it hangs at my side and makes grabbing my camera much easier. I recommend it to many people.

    This strap is very well made keeps your camera out of the way until you are ready to use it. I find it takes a bit of trial and error to put it on properly.

    While you can buy other, more expensive and oft-times better harnesses from places like BH PHoto, this harness works perfectly well for the price.

    My wife purchased this to hold her camera while being mobile so it could be available at a moment. It is far superior to another similar product she had previously purchased.

    It is a great strap to use to carry camera around all day. It is stable and convenient. The only thing that I found awkward was the support strap under armpit.

    While the principal of the sling is great we felt it was awkward to put on and cumbersome. We spent too much time each time we needed to put the sling back on.

    Bear in mind it hangs UPSIDE-DOWN!

    It's comfortable. It's expandable. But it hangs on swivel upside-down from the tripod mount and is a recipe for crashing into everything nearby. Beware.
