    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.

    Best camera strap ever made!!

    By Musclecakes

    from MA

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

    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 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.

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

                    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!

                      Outstanding, well thought out design, made from quality materials. It handles my Pentax K-3 and a heavy lens without a problem. I makes the standard old around-the-neck strap completely obsolete, no more getting banged in the chest with every step taken. I am taking it with me to France; it will be well used. I don't foresee any problems at all. I am happy with the purchase.

                            I use this strap primarily for wildlife photography. It is far more comfortable than straps that hang around your neck and allow the camera to move. This strap secures the camera where you want it and keeps it there, provides quick access for immediate shooting, is comfortable, and the attachment system ensures that there is no risk of detachment.

                            Using this strap while walking in rough terrain with a large lens eliminates the normal strain and pain of the day.

                            I'm sorry I waited so long.

                              I use this to shoot weddings and fast pace events. The build qaulity is pretty nice. The padding around the shoulder was a bit short. I am a broad guy, 6 foot and weigh around 200lbs. The padding kept sliding backward and forward during the event. Maybe i would get used to it.

                              Great strap except that it doesn't hold the adjustment to shorten strap. If you're short and want the strap shorter, the design of this strap doesn't hold the adjustment. I called BlackRapid customer service but they didn't have any solutions which fixed the issue. Same problem with my wife's strap. I finally modified the strap myself to finally hold the adjustment. Other than this design flaw, it's a good strap and we continue to use it.
