        Comments about Kirk SS-1 Security Strap:

        Ordered this to 'hang' my gripped Canon 7D + EF 500mm f/4. Added attraction was the Arca-Swiss QR plate,since the 500mm has an A-S plate.
        I expected more padding in this shoulder strap….was disappointed in how thin the shoulder pad is, considering the weight this strap is supposed to support. It would be adequate with my 7D + EF 400mm f5.6.
        At this price point...the shoulder pad should be a little more robust. 1 star loss for the inadequate shoulder pad….

            I will keep this short. I have had a number of different straps in the past. I was never "satisfied" with any of them. They did not work well when carrying 3 bodies and lens combos for event photography. I can safely say that after purchasing the Kirk Security Strap, I will never need another strap ever. They rotate perfectly at events and the added bonus of them having Arca-Swiss type plates, makes it a definite winner. I can quickly remove the cameras and place them on the tripod, or just attach it to the tripod as is ... the perfect strap.

              Quick release work really well, stap is comfortable but a bit short if you want to use it with a 500mm or a longer lens.

                  I had been using a variety of "solutions" to carry a second body and/or long lens, and was never comfortable with the DIY straps I have rigged up. After almost dropping my 400 f/2.8 I realized that the Kirk Strap I had been looking at for years, was actually the perfect solution. It is both comfortable and secure. I wish I had bought it years ago.

                        This is great. A combo strap with plate. Enables me to shoot two bodies easily. When I have my 400 with me, I can put the strap over my shoulder and my 400 is safe and secure.

                          This product is ideal for large lenses.
                          This also can be used to strap the body. This can operate quickly as BLACKRAPID strap.
                          I have this shoulder portion of the OP / TECH better thought of as soft.

                          Comments about Kirk SS-1 Security Strap:

                          I have a 500mm f4 and when is coupled with my D700 and the flash, carring everything around without the backpack is very difficult.

                          The strap from Kirk is very practical with the Arca Swiss style clamp; allow you to better distribute the weight and have your camera ready to use. The clamp could also be used as "head" for monopods (very usefull)

                          The only suggestion to Kirk should to add something like a safety lock to avoid accidental loosen of the clamp and then "fall on the ground" risk for the lens. I know, the "pin" in arca swiss plate should prevent it to slip, but in this case you do not have your expensive glasses on a tripod, but hanged on your side...More safety will be welcomed.

                              Could be attached to the lens, or to the camera body. The gear feels secure.
