Product Highlights
  • Remains Attached to Left Strap Lug
  • Tripod Socket Remains Accessible
  • 64" Long / No Fittings, Buckles, Screws
  • Works in Horizontal/Vertical Positions
  • Supports Up to 60 lb
  • Distributes Weight Evenly on Shoulder
  • 1.5" Seat Belt-Style Durable Webbing
  • Works for Right/Left-Handed Shooters
  • Minimum of Metal Parts / No Scratches
  • Made in the USA

The black One Piece Sling Strap from BosStrap is a very comfortable shooting and carrying strap that works via a nickel plated fitting that slides along the 64” BosStrap. The 3/8" wide, 8" long tail connects the sliding fitting to the left lug of your camera so the tail does not interfere with camera controls.  Since the attachment point is the camera strap lug, the tripod socket will always be available.  The tail cannot become accidentally detached from the camera because there is no releasable connector.  

The One Piece keeps its metal components to a minimum making it extremely light at less than 3.8 oz. There are no special fittings to be dealt with - no buckles or screws that can damage the surface of your camera. Yet, even though it is so incredibly lightweight, it can handle a load of up to 60 lb - certainly much more than the average camera rig weighs.

The One Piece is also valuable in that it frees up both hands - and is workable for either right or left-handed photographers. When not used, it keeps your camera safely at your side ready to be rapidly slid up into shooting position. The 1.5" wide seat-belt grade webbing evenly distributes the weight on your shoulder - and there is no extra shoulder pad that can keep slipping out of position. When you're not shooting with it, you can neatly wrap it around your camera lens for easy storage.

Attaches to the left camera strap lug, not the tripod socket; there is no releasable connector between the strap and the camera; no fittings, buckles or screws to disconnect; also avoids possible damage to your camera from metal rubbing against the camera
One piece construction - never worry about the camera becoming disconnected from the strap
Longer tail - allows more angular adjustment of the body strap to fine tune comfort
Significantly reduced metal parts - avoids metal contact with the camera body
No straps in the way when shooting horizontal or vertical - accessible controls
Works with left or right handed photographers
Tripod socket is always available - now you can easily go from hand-held to tripod with removing anything
No shoulder pad is required - nothing to constantly move back in place
Comfortable, smooth, strong virgin nylon seat belt webbing - 1.5" (3.8 cm) wide to distribute the camera weight
Frees both hands - camera safely remains at your side when not in use
Engineered to support over 60 pounds - 10x the typical weight of a professional rig
Easy to stow - simply wrap the BosStrap OP around your lens
Material 1.5" (3.8 cm) seat belt-style webbing
Metal, Acetal, nylon fittings
Attachment Method Attaches to the left camera strap lug - not the tripod socket
Dimensions 64" long (162.6 cm)
1.5" wide (3.8 cm)
Weight 3.7 oz (107 g)

      Simply what a modern day camera strap should be. I tried more expensive competing brands and was not satisfied. The BosStrap is more comfortable, more secure, more easily adjusted, less bulky, more easily stored and more affordable than any of the other brands I have tried. It is simple in its design, but engineered for comfort and security. When you "draw" your camera to take the picture, it's as though the strap isn't there. And when you rest the camera on your hip for carry, you can do so with full confidence that the attachment to the strap lug, rather than the tripod socket, is supporting your expensive gear as the manufacturer intended it!! Had I bought the BosStrap to begin with, the only other camera strap that I would have bought again would have been a second BosStrap for my other SLR, although the G3 tail (weight rated at 60 lbs.!) allows for quick release and use among several DSLR's. In my opinion, BosStrap is the only strap to buy.

      I got this sling strap to try with a heavy Nikon full-frame camera and its heavy lenses, but found that no matter how I adjusted it it strangled me and was always in front of some part of the camera I needed to see or use. Also, no matter how I adjusted the strap or hung onto the camera, the lens either stuck out to the side and banged into things or led my body to the front and banged into things when I raised the camera. Good thing I keep filters on my lenses and usually work with a hood! (The heavy metal strap loop clonked into the view screen and sometimes the the front of the lens, too.) My shoulders were very square before the left was separated and dropped down, but the problem was the same on the right --- females take note: the strap rode over my (large) bosom to my neck, so the sling choked me regardless of which side I had it on.Conclusion: not for the slope-shouldered or bosomy!I'm keeping the sling to try on a lens -- it's gotta be better than the skinny strap that comes with lens cases, and the metal hanger loop problem won't apply to either a hard or soft case.

      Found it easy to adjust and fit to my body. The canna slides up with ease. And rest in a comfortable position while at rest on my side. Camera (eos7d) works well with the strap

      This strap is comfortable and simple. Keeps my camera in a perfect position to capture the shot and stays out of the way while playing at park with the kids. Can't think of any cons.

          Comments about BosStrap One Piece Sling Strap (Black):

          There were specific things I was looking for in a strap and this has them all! There are no quick release buckles that can be accidentally separated. I like the piece of mind in knowing whenever I pick up my camera by the strap it is always securely attached. It attaches where a camera is designed to carry its weight, on the camera's lugs and NOT the tripod mount. This was very important because both Canon and Nikon state the tripod mount is not intended to support the weight of a dangling camera. My DSLR with a vertial grip, 2 batteries in it, and a 100-400mm L series lens is pretty heavy for most folks but this strap supports it with no worries and no problem. It fits comfortably over the shoulder and there is no more swinging around than with a regular strap. The other nice thing is that when I put the camera behind me, the weight of the camera keeps it in place allowing me to bend over and get things out of my bag without it swinging around or banging on the ground. The camera slides effortlessly up the strap and the strap never gets in the way when shooting in either orientation. I just shot a long wedding day with it and I could kick myself for not getting one sooner!

                I prefer to sling my camera off my left hip, with result the logo is upside-down across your chest and (more importantly) the fittings for the adjustment straps are in-the-way, such as one was in the middle of my back and you can feel it when back is against something, like back of a chair.

                Minor point: also did not like how weight of camera was not distributed, that one attachment point has the full weight so the strap tugs at the shoulder a bit ... obvious if you think about it, but feels very different if not used to it

                          I really like this sling strap, it was easy to adjust for my body - and its nice to have the camera at the ready for either horizontal OR vertical shots.

                          Bought by brother one of these sling straps for a Christmas present, but I liked mine so much I decided to give it to him now ... so I gave it to him this past weekend - I just can't see waiting to give him something that will make it easier for him to carry his camera ! He really likes it too!

                          Highly recommend this product, little pricey - but it works very well!

                                The One Piece strap itself doesn't seem very well designed. It wasn't easy to adjust to the right size.

                                  Attaches to camera sling loop on one side; very secure and easy to move camera from hip to shooting position quickly; Strap is like seat belt material-camera moves smoothly from hip to eye height very easily; I use it with a 7D with 70-200 F/2.8L, Tokina 12-14mm, and 100mm 2.8L and the hardware feels solid and I won't lose my investment(s). Fits across shoulder for comfortable fit. Made in USA

                                    More comfortable than a neck strap especially with larger and heavier lenses. The strap does not get in the way of your shot if your right handed. The strap could use a quick disconnect from the camera body.

                                      Any sling strap makes a difference so big that any photographer should give one a try. BOS Strap differs from most of them, being very lightweight, without any padded parts, pockets and other stuff making a strap bulky, yet is very comfortable to wear, to use and to store (around lens). Another important difference is it connects not to tripod socket but camera's left strap eye, which makes it more comfortable to use and strap never comes into your way should you shoot vertically or horisontally. It is also long enough to fit the largest bodies. The only small minus is company logo in bright yellow, though not very big. I plan to color it with water resistant black marker.

                                        Use while shooting at hockey games or other sporting events. Makes using my Canon 5DII with 70-200 lens a snap. Less neck strain after three periods of hockey. Also very handy while doing walks about NYC. The direction made a snap to attach.

                                              I was looking for a strap to put over my shoulder instead of around my neck. The canon strap that came with my new camera I just couldn't get to do this comfortably. I looked at other side straps but I liked this one because it did not attach where the tripod does. The strap is made of seat belt material and is very comfortable and very strong at the same time. It is also easy to adjust and it is very secure on the strap. I have used it with the kit lens and a telephoto lens. It was also a great price - way less then other straps of this kind. I like the way that it doesn't get in the way when taking horizontal or vertical pictures - or on the tripod. It slides up easily and doesn't get tangled either. Great!!

                                                    If there was ever a product that was grossly overpriced this is it!I will keep it because its not worth the time and effort to return it....and it will probably work fine.But, just go to any surplus store or any place that sells nylon strapping and buy the same for probably $8.00 (est.)Nothing fancy about this product....just a strap with a loop to fit a camera.In no way worth [$].What a rip off!

                                                        Well constructed, no more neck pain from carrying around a camera all day around my neck.
