      As a nature photographer I use a tripod a good deal of the time and thus spend a great amount of time lugging one around. I ordered this strap on a wim and after sending in the order I wondered if it had been money well spent. Two days after the strap arrived I had no doubt that it had been money well spent and I now can not imagine being without this strap. I own a 6 lb tripod and the excellent design of this strap and ample padding make carting the tripod around a pleasure. Plus the quick relase fastech buckles make releasing the strap when ready to use the tripod a breeze. As I say, money well spent!

      The strap seems to be well-made and sturdy. I like the wide, dense padding on the strap. The buckles are reliable. However, the strap does not seem to be designed correctly for carrying the tripod on your back. The padded section is spaced approximately equi-distance from each end. This works fine if you want to carry the tripod at a horizontal angle under your arm. But I want it diagonally down the length of my back. For this arrangement, one end of the strap needs to be longer, to reach the lower back. Yes, I can shorten the other end but then it is too short overall. I managed to make this work by adding to the strap but it is not ideal. The wide padded part barely seats on my shoulder; it is mostly across my chest, where it is not needed and is hot. [...]

        One end wraps just below the head, the other around the feet and both quick-release snap into place. I keep the head end attached and just slide the feet end on and off to open the legs. I don't bother to unsnap or adjust the feet end loop as it stays in place while the tripod is over my shoulder.

            I use this strap to hold my lightweight video tripod and monopod. I shoot a lot of video on location and this has been a great asset for moving equipment efficiently.

              Comments about OP/TECH USA Tripod Strap (Black):

              I bought this for my Gitzo series 1 tripod. It is such a great tripod and so light that it didn't make sense to add wieght with a bag. I have a padded bag to keep it in but when I want to go out hiking it was just to hard to manage with the bag. I tried just carrying it but when I need to hold on or climb a rock I needed to have my hands free. I looked at the Gitzo strap but it was much more expensive. This one is good quality and I like it. I gave it a 4 stars because I wish it worked so that you could keep the strap attached like the Gitzo one advertises that it can.

                  What keeps me from giving this 5 stars is the fact that it's a bit large for the small tripod I'm carrying. Although the straps are adjustable, overall it's still a lot of strap for a small tripod and me ..a relatively small person. But I love how easy it is to "store" by snapping the pieces together and hanging them off other pieces of equipment when the tripod is in use.

                    I've been using OP/TECH camera straps for years. I used to carry 2 Canon A1's with motor drives back in the day so I decided to try their tripod strap. I bought the strap for my old fairly heavy Bogen 3021. This strap is great. It beats throwing the tripod over your shoulder. Carried the tripod around all day without a problem. Great strap. That little bit of stretch in the shoulder pad helps distribute the weight of the tripod.

                        Buying this was an excellent decision. It helps to keep my hands free when I am on the move. The shoulder pad is comfortable and makes carrying my heavy Manfrotto tripod a breeze. For the price you can't beat it, plus it is made in the USA. Everyone that travels with a tripod should add one of these to their kit.

                              I have an old style Manfrotto tripod and head. It is a beast but also rock steady. I use it for landscape and when I shoot sequences. I had been carrying it in its bag but that required taking off the handles from the head to fit the bag and the bag was just one more thing to carry. I went for the op/tech strap based on price and some reviews. Glad I did. The two loops allow it to fit my tripod easily and the quick detach makes it easy to set up. The shoulder pad is large and soft and it has a sort of elasticity in it that helps absord the weight when I am walking. Two thumbs up. Would buy again and definitly reccomend.

                                      I wanted a good quality shoulder strap to carry around my new Induro 8M AT313 tripod.

                                      The OP/TECH strap comes in black and matches the tripod, it's easy to adjust, strong, well made and, reasonable priced.

                                      There is no down side to purchasing or owning this strap

                                        In fact, it's my wife who uses this product. She is very happy with this little gift I made to her. In the future, it will be easier for us to go on a photographic tour.

                                          I had been carrying around my Manfrotto tripod along with my camera backpack, and it was awkward. I purchased this strap and attached it to the tripod and now I just sling it over my shoulder, leaving both my hands free. Great product.

                                            After lugging my tripod ALL OVER THE WORLD I finally came to my senses and bought this simple strap. Wow does this make it easier out in the field!

                                              I've been struggling with carrying a tripod while hiking. Holding the tripod in a side pocket of a backpack is a pain - it's hard to get in and out quickly and catches on low-hanging branches.

                                              This strap allows me to put the tripod across the back of my pack where it has more freedom of motion so it doesn't get hung-up as easily and I can quickly remove it and get it back on.

                                                  After years of carrying around my tripod by hand, I finally looked into a strap to attached to it and now have hands-free carrying! It has quick release buckles for easy removal of the strap.
