    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.

          This strap is very comfortable and, most importantly, sits securely on my shoulder. It is plenty long enough (I'm 6' 3") and the camera rests comfortably at my right hand.

            One thing that will no longer happen to me is to hurt my eye with the original strap that came with my camera.
            This strap is comfortable but a little bit too expensive in my opinion, hence the 4 stars.

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

            I always hated traditional camera straps, even aftermarket straps. They are always too short to easily sling over neck and shoulder and still use the camera. The BlackRapid solved that. It is easy to sling the camera out of the way at my side and hangs lens down. Shooting is as easy as reaching for the camera and lifting it to shooting position.

              Comfortable. Takes some getting used to. I have always used the OEM straps that come with my cameras. I have some large lenses, and this strap takes the brunt of the weight off my neck and puts it on my shoulder.

              I did buy the BlackRapid FastenR-T1 for Manfrotto 200PL-14 QR Plate so I could use my quick release plate.

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

                This camera strap works very well with my Canon EOS 60D. I was able to screw the strap directly to my camera body. The first time wearing it I did notice the screw became a little loose, but I used the carabiner to tighten it and it's been secure ever since. The strap is easy to get into and I really like the underarm strap for extra stability. It would be nice if they made the strap for small people too. I tried cinching the strap to it's smallest "setting" but it was so short the carabiner wouldn't slide. I've readjusted it so the camera can slide easily, but my camera hangs lower than I would prefer. Otherwise, this is a great strap that makes me feel confident that my camera is safe and it's so much easier to take pictures with the sliding carabiner.

                  A must for photographers wanting to get rid of the sore neck from the traditional "around the neck" strap. I use this strap with my 5D and 70-200 for sports and wildlife shooting. Adjustable straps to fit any desired length. Quick and easy to bring your camera up to get that perfect shot.

                    I thought about purchasing a knock off strap [*] but decided against it. $60 is a small price to pay to secure your $3,000+ gear and this strap is built really well. It's easy to use, sturdy and very comfortable.

                        I have been using this strap for the past year with a Canon EOS 6D. This strap has made a huge difference in my use of the camera. I have worn it at formal wedding receptions and on hikes through the woods. These would have been tiring with the standard Canon neck strap. The Black Rapid made it a breeze. This strap has the extra under arm bit for extra security. It's a nice option to have this extra bit and I have been able to use the strap both with and without making use of the extra security strap. Only negative is that the limiters used to restrict the movement of the camera along the length of the strap tend to come loose fairly easily.

                            This product is great for shifting the camera weight from the neck to the shoulder, while at the same time giving you all the accessibility to the camera as a standard neck strap. Finally it does not make you think about weather you want to drag out the heavy DSLR.

                            Haven't used this strap much yet, but you immediately get the impression that this strap is a quality piece....much better than the standard neck strap supplied with your DSLR. This strap is designed to distribute the weight of heavy DSLRs and lenses more evenly across your body rather thn around the sensitive neck muscles. This product appears to accomplish that. Since I have always been active in sports myself, I felt that the Sport version would be best for me and so far so good!

                            Use for travel photography
                            Very comfortable even with heavy long lenses
                            Stays in place, doesn't move around out of place like my other straps
                            Well constructed

                              No more heavy camera,lens,speed light and battery pack hanging around my neck.This strap fits nicely on my shoulder and hangs perfectly on my hip for quick access. Also no strap hanging in front of my eye peace when shooting verticals. I am very happy with this strap.

                                At first I thought it was a waste of money , spend $ 70 on a camera strap ?!
                                I read endless reviews , but still , it was very difficult to buy, and I'm certainly not a millionaire .
                                After all the Internet review and youtube video I was still skeptical . Anyway I decided to order the strap.
                                Got it, took it out, tried it, just loved it!
                                I was really angry on myself not buying it earlier.
                                So ergonomic and comfortable ,on the side and does not interfere in any activity beyond photography.
                                Finally there is no strap that is in the way on the camera!
                                The only downside is that you can't use a plate with this one but you can get a Joby quick release plate (Arca Swiss) And works perfectly for me!
                                Really if you have a neck strap just throw it away! this one is simply the best!

                                The strap sure takes the strain off your neck. The camera travel limiters are good to keep the camera tucked behind you while you walk. They can easily be released to allow the camera fee movement.Added the Lockstar more to protect the camera than an additional carabiner security feature.Don't care for the underarm-strap. When you lift the camera & bend down/over the pad tend to slide off your shoulder unless the under-arm strap is pulled tight. Bunches up your clothes & feels uncomfortable. I solved this problem by removing the underarm strap & replacing it with my camera neck strap going across my chest under my right arm connecting to the back of the shoulder pad. It hangs relatively loosely but holds the left pad on your shoulder without binding or bunching your clothes.IMO save your money. Buy the regular strap & use your neck strap as described above.
