        Comments about BlackRapid BERT Extension for RS-7 and RS DR-1 Straps:

        This is a very nice extension strap for the excellent BR shoulder strap. I bought is to extend my RS-7 strap. Being 6'7" I thought is was necessary. But it is not. The unextended strap is long enough for my 6'7" athletic build (265 lbs). Nothing wrong here, but this product is probability needed for the bigger rather than the taller.

          Before buying this, my camera was always securely ensconced in my armpit. Now, it will hang down at waist level, convenient to my hand, making it easier to grab and snap photos whenever necessary. Quality appears to be in line with the rest of Black Rapid's products.

              Comments about BlackRapid BERT Extension for RS-7 and RS DR-1 Straps:

              I bought this because without it the camera felt as if it was sitting high on my waist and I prefer it lower on my hip. After adding the extension I found it very easy to adjust the strap and get the fit just right.

              I gave it four stars because the strap should have enough built in adjust-ability to not require the extra purchase.

              Comments about BlackRapid BERT Extension for RS-7 and RS DR-1 Straps:

              As a "big and tall" guy (6'3", 270), a lot of other reviews convinced me that I would need this for my RS-7. Maybe I'm not as big as I thought I was, but I found the BERT to add way too much extra length. At full extension, the RS-7 strap fit comfortably on its own.

                      Bought this to go with my RS-7 (as I'm 6'4") but I realized after getting it that I didn't need it. You don't get a whole lot for what was paid but if you need it you need it...

                                I own an RS-7 and at it's fullest extension it is still a little shorter than I would like. I was somewhat disapointed that Black Rapid did not make a strap for larger and taller photographers. The BERT extension allows me to extend the overall length so that my camera is at a comfortable position. I also own a RS-Sport, I wish Black Rapid would develope an extension for that strap as well.
