    Well designed strap, contoured & padded for comfort even when carrying a D800 camera and heavy lens. Camera is very accessible at all times and easily & quickly moved to eye level for shooting. Being a conservative engineer I did add a safety strap, as shown in the photo below, in case the tripod screw accidently backs out.(never has happened but just being cautious)

    The strap is well designed, but BlackRapid uses cheap, knock-off parts instead of industry standard ITW Nexus brand parts. The main ladderloc [that adjusts the length of the strap] is a non brand-name part and on my copy, it slips miserably. BlackRapid's support was useless; they told me to tighten the underarm strap which of course I'd already tried. What bothers me is we're talking about cents here. This is an $80 camera strap - come on BlackRapid!

    Because I like the strap [other than this major flaw], I went-out and purchased a brand-name ITW Nexus "ladderloc" [cost me $0.25] and reinstalled - now it works as it should with zero slippage. I can hang my 1D X and a 70-200 f/2.8 off this thing without any issues. For those of you that don't quite trust the attachment point, I made a tether that runs through the hand-strap mount and attaches to the strap's carabiner - gives an extra margin of safety.

      Comments about RS-Sport Extreme Sport Strap (Black):

      I use this strap screwed into a ReallyRightStuff Quick Disconnect "plate" that attaches to RRS camera QD plates on Nikon D800 and Hasselblad ELM500 which is much heavier. This allows me to move camera(s) from strap to tripod in a flash or just raise the camera to shoot in-hand. Quick disconnect scheme also allows multiple cameras to be used without moving the strap camera mount plug between camera bodies. The RS-Sport incorporates an under arm strap on the camera side which (hopefully) prevents someone from making off with camera by yanking the strap over your head. An under-arm strap is offered as an option in the model just below the Sport but if you include it, cost wise you end up at nearly same. Plus the RS_Sport is, to me, a better design in terms of shoulder pad and camera support in general so why buy the "cheaper" one with the under-arm option. The strap length slip adjuster does not actually lock in place so over time the length does tend to creep - every once in a while it (mine) must be tweeked a tad. Strap is well made and uses decent (but not great) hardware. Have had no problems at all - so far. It hangs around neck extremely comfortably and feels pretty much "just right".

      Comments about RS-Sport Extreme Sport Strap (Black):

      A big camera + a big lens = a big pain in the neck!!! UNTIL... I saw this strap being used by a guy at a resort in Orlando. When I asked the guy about the strap, he raved about it. He told me about the strap and about B&H. I looked on the site and found it along with video demo of the product. I bought one. BEST INVESTMENT EVER!!!

        Works quite well. Stays snug and secure on shoulder. All connectors are snug and secure. Purchased the buckle covers and safety strap as well. Is a bit tough to get the under arm strap connected.

        Extremely Impressed

        By Justin

        from Calabasas, CA

        Comments about RS-Sport Extreme Sport Strap (Black):

        This strap is hands down the best on the market. It's sleek, comfortable and works flawlessly. This strap id so comfortable that I literally have forgotten that I was wearing my camera (Canon 6D with a Canon 24 to 105 L). You have the ability to lock your camera down to a comfortable position on the strap via the locking bumpers. The strap won't get twisted up since it has a pivoting caribiner at the base. The shape of the shoulder pad contours to the shoulders nicely. This strap is worth every penny.

          I shoot youth sports and I have primary camera with the long lens on a Monopod and my 2nd camera slinged with a shorter lens if the actions comes at me. I have used it a few times and is great to just carry the camera.

            I find it to be very comfortable and supports the weight of the camera and lens very well. Camera slides very well on the strap and locked in nicely and strap stays put on your shoulder. I highly recommend this strap and worth the price.

            Night and day between the old neck strap and this system. The camera is out of the way when not in use but is right at your hand when wanted. The BlackRapid strap is also very comfortable to carry the camera all day.

              Comments about RS-Sport Extreme Sport Strap (Black):

              I was looking for more of a one sided (non sling) strap, which I can use this as when wearing a backpack. This is designed to be worn from one shoulder and slung over to the other hip. The strap does this well, but it is hard to ignore the fact that it is not the 'hippest' look whilst strapped all across.

                  i love this strap, i walk dogs for a living & i'm an active person. i need my hands free most of the time when i'm not using my camera. this strap sling is so useful, it eliminates the neck pains that the standard strap creates. its very easy to use & its comfortable. most cameras are heavy, this makes it feel light weight. plus i feel like my camera is secure, i went to the empire state building to shoot & having this strap gave me the security i needed to stick my camera out of the gate & not feel like it was going to fall out of my hands. even if it did its not going anywhere.. check out my photography on instagram JOSE_FRESH

                      I've been looking for a strap or equipment to hold my camera in place when walking or hiking. Tried many straps (even other BlackRapids)and a harness that supposedly kept the camera still and handy. None worked for me, until this one.

                        Comments about RS-Sport Extreme Sport Strap (Black):

                        Very happy with this product and use it a lot with heavy lenses like the 300mm f/2.8 IS L II. I feel comfortable using it for cycling, hiking and sightseeing and prefer this shoulder strap over any neck strap for a DSLR. It can be a little stiff at first but mellows after some use. Sturdy and confidence inducing but there is an issue with wear and tear. Having used it for a while I can clearly see how the loop is "eating" away at the lock(see picture). In fact I had to get a new one because I worry that it no longer is safe to carry heavy lenses with the strap and bought a new strap because you cannot mount a spare/new lock. It takes a little practice to get on/off quickly, but since I have used it a lot I no longer have any problems. Some may require a little practice before getting it right. Think the company should make clear - just as tripod producers do - that there is a limit to how heavy lenses the lock can handle.

                          Comments about RS-Sport Extreme Sport Strap (Black):

                          Wanted a strap for my DSLR that would allow me to walk and move without the camera getting in my way. I also wanted a strap that would make the camera available very quickly.

                          I have purchased and used the strap. It is great!
                          I now have the camera hanging by my side, out of my way but ready to bring up for quick shots.

                          I wish I had this strap last month on our vacation. You can be sure that it will be on all future trips.

                          I'm a wedding photographer. And most straps kill my back and shoulder shooting all. This strap is perfect. Great strap for all day use.

                            I'm the owner of a DSLR camera and I was tired of the strap that comes with the camera. I was looking for something more professional and versatil, so I bought this blackrapid strap and now I'm happy taking pictures without neck ache that I used to have. The quality of materials are great and this strap is really comfortable.

                            I have tried many different solutions to carry my cameras with me at all times and none worked very well - either would be clumsy or would be too big / look like a dork walking around.

                            Until I found the BlackRapid systems. They are really great, the strap never feels it's in your way. If you shoot with only one camera I highly advise this system.

                            If you think you might end up using two cameras, then look into the YETI model.

                            I originally ordered this one but then learned about the YETI model which allows you to carry either one or two cameras. That flexibility was worth the additional money for me since I normally shoot with 2 cameras:

                            1. Nikon D300 with 70-200 pro lens
                            2. Nikon D800 with pro wide angle lens (normally a 14-24)

                            The only thing that you need to consider is that all the weight will be in one single shoulder so after a while it might feel uncomfortable if you have two big cameras with 2 big lenses on it. For me though it is perfect!
