    I've used this for carrying two cameras around, or took it apart and also used it as a single strap. It works extraordinarily well for what it is intended for, street and event photography. This product is built with a very specific photographer in mind, it is the best strap you can own. With that said, here's when you wouldn't want to use the strap.

    -With regular tripod use you have to unscrew the strap
    -If you have to hand off your camera regularly there is no quick way to do it.
    -If you like to shoot in portrait orientation it gets awkward (especially without a grip)
    -If you need both hands free AND will be making sudden movements (running, jumping, leaning over, climbing, etc).
    -If you want to use a backback, slingbag, or any other bag with similar harnesses it will get in the way (I use a Think Tank Photo belt system with good results though)

    With proper use your cameras won't bounce around much while moving, but I tend to keep a hand on them when I am running or adjusting myself to awkward positions.

    The bottom line is if you are a travel or street photographer, and use two cameras, this is the strap for you. For anyone else, it is most likely a very mixed bag.

    I bought the Blackrapid Doublestrap DR-1 from BH a month ago and it almost destroyed my D4 and 70-200/2.8 VR2. I lifted up my camera to shoot and was switching to my 24-70 during a news event . Just as I was lowering my camera towards my hip i noticed that the camera was not attached to the blackrapid connect r-2.(part that attaches to tripod mount screw)

    I was confused as to how the camera could have come off the CR-2 because I always make sure to tighten the thumb screw part on the connect-r2. I checked and it was tight then i noticed I could push down on the screw part and the connect-r2 opened and I saw the broken piece.

    I had taken precautions in case the buckle broke off from the part that attaches to the strap. I just never thought there was another point of failure on the Connect R-2.

    I really like working with the Blackrapid but want to warn others that this problem can seriously damage their cameras. I am glad that I noticed the camera was not attached or else it would have dropped on concrete during a fast-paced news situation.

    The salesman at very large New York City camera store said another customer had recently said this happened. It is a very troubling design issue and needs to be addressed by Blackrapid before more gear is damaged.

    Anyone using the Sun-Sniper Bear Camera Screw on the DR-1? How did you get it on? I have heard you will have to cut the threads on the strap and will have to have them sewn on at a shoe repair shop.

    Just bought this product. I use it as a single strap for now until i get a second hand camera body.

    The strap around the shoulder is very comfortable. Much better than having around the neck if u go for long outdoor s

        I love this strap not only can I carry 2 cameras at the same time but my neck and shoulders don't get tired.I also love the fact that I can use just one strap if I'm only carrying one camera.I feel like a gun fighter,ouick on the draw with my cameras when i need them in a hurry for that once in a lifetime shot.

            Comments about BlackRapid RS DR-1 Double Strap:

            I hobbled along with a cheap dual strap for some time now. But upgrading to a full frame DSLR meant i needed to trust the strap holding one of the most expensive pieces of equipment i own. It is very versatile...I been using it as a single strap for weeks now without any issues. Its nice to know the other strap is in my bag if i so choose to use it. The shoulders straps are thinner then the no name brand i used to use and that is a good thing. This makes the strap form fitting and allows it to stay put as you move around. The rubber washer attached to the nut that attaches to the camera is solid and snug. No worries about it coming loose on a day of shooting. But like anything else it should be checked periodically just in case. I would say that i would buy this product again but there would be no need. The build quality is excellent and i know this will be my primary carrying strap for years to come. Do yourself a favor and skip the cheap ones. Pay for quality and you only have to pay once.

            Comments about BlackRapid RS DR-1 Double Strap:

            I have had back problems for a long while, I had surgery some 15 years ago. All was fine until recently when I took up photography more seriously and started walking around nature preserves with my heavy camera and lens around my neck. This is possibly one of the worse places to support a heavy load of any kind, and doctors the world over will advise you not to lift or carry weight in this manner. Long story short, carrying the camera around my neck caused one of my disc's to herniate again. I was gutted, I love to walk and photograph what I see, fortunately there is a remedy! One of my friends suggested I use the Black Rapid DR system. I have 2 cameras and sometimes carry them both so I opted for the RS DR-1. Its awesome, its easy to setup, it looks cool, you can convert it from a 2 camera to one camera strap in seconds, and then back again, in seconds. Its top quality, all the components are finished very well./ I don't have a bad word to say against it. The best part. I get zero pain now from my back, I can walk for longer periods and am able to just reach down for the camera and shoot. What an excellent system!

              Comments about BlackRapid RS DR-1 Double Strap:

              I purchased this after seeing it in action with one of my friends. It is THE camera strap for any shooter who uses two bodies. I use for weddings carrying my 5DMkII with grip and a 24-105 and my 7D with a 70-200. Works great and I don't have to worry about it slipping off of my shoulder or the strap getting in the way at the wrong time. Most importantly my shoulders aren't sore at the end of a day of shooting. Forget all of the others. I can't recommend it enough

                If you're almost 70 and overweight, this is for you. With arthritis in my hands and a back that likes to cramp up, slinging two heavy-weight camera/lens combinations with the DR-1 keeps me going. Some say it doesn't allow you to run ... I don't run!

                  Loved the concept and now I think the attachment to the camera is spot on. That was the only real complaint I had with the original. Love that it can be a single strap too. The strap still likes to creep down the body, don't know how that is solved though. Maybe it's just me, but that's why I gave it 4 stars.

                    Makes carrying two camera/lens combinations easy. It is a little awkward compared to the single strap as I find it gets in the way when you bring the camera to our eye particularly the right side in portrait mode. It will also take some getting use to in bring a camera from my left side. having said all that it's likely the best solution available so far.

                        I love how light it feels and how securely it fits on my shoulders. Yeah, no more neck strain. I won't lose my camera. The versatility of one or two cameras is good.

                        The little extra connect strap in the back did not want to stay snapped shut, so I might get another, but perhaps I'm just not closing it all the way.

                        What would be even better, is if the mounting device for the strap would doulbe as my tripod quick release plate. That's the only drawback I can think of. I have to remove the strap to hook up my quick release plate, which means just another little thing I might forget to bring,(the quick release plate that is).

                            I have been shooting weddings for several years with two cameras. I always get home beat up and stiff from holding two cameras and hunching my shoulders to keep them from sliding off. I also missed a few shots when I had to switch cameras at times. This double strap solved the shoulder pain and fatigue and is super fast to change cameras. For entrances I can swap from my 70-200 on one body to the second with a short lens so fast and not worry about either camera dropping. It is fast and comfortable. Love this double strap.

                            Black Rapid is the only way to go

                              I have used Black Rapid since my first Canon 5D MK II. I bought this so I could handle two pro cameras on a at the same time. Wouldn't consider ever hanging a camera around my neck after owning a Black Rapid.

                                Supports two cameras with ease. Well made. Don't like the camera connectors for me they need to fold over so speed tripod plate can stay attached to camera. I guess thats an option. For the price you think that would be included. Nice that it splits in half if you don't need two cameras it will give you a right and left single strap.
                                This strap is very good but not perfect for me.

                                  I'm a professional wedding photographer and this strap is great because I can carry 2 camera bodies on me without the back pain ;-)

                                  If you use 2 cameras a lot I highly recommend this strap.

                                  Now I can carry two cameras w/different lens configuration
                                  to concerts and outdoor shows to shoot bands and don't get tired shoulders from my old straps tugging on them.
                                  Love the ease to adjust the rigging and straps.

                                    Having to go online for instructions seems cheap. A sheet of paper doesn't cost much. B&H service good as always.
