        This sling strap for my camera has literally saved my neck from more pain. The camera hangs
        at my side and there is no pressure from a strap
        behind my neck...I have problems with my neck.

        I would buy it again...I don't know why I waited
        so long to get one.

        Great product a little difficult to engage but when i use it to secure a d610 with mb-d14 and a 600mm IS ED VRII it is used to secure my equipment when on monopod or moving around on my two wheel vehicle at work.

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

          I purchased this strap for my new 7D, but have been using it with my Sony NEX5T just to get a feel for it with a camera I'm familiar with. I love this strap. Being a fledgling photographer, I am excited about venturing out, but find I'm easily irritated with camera straps around the neck. This strap takes all of the stress off of the neck and the padding is kind to your clothes, very comfortable and stays put. The clips allow you to control where the camera hangs/rests and its range of movement when not in use which is really a great feature. Having high quality equipment is not excessive nor a luxury - it's essential, as photography should be something that is enjoyable - not labored and fatiguing. The only thing I would add is a couple of stash pouches on the strap to store battery/cards.

            I like the extra stability of the under arm strap when I am running around.
            BlackRapid straps are comfortable, securely hold my camera and my camera slides freely when I lift it to take a picture.
            RS-L is great for events and sports when you are running around and your camera strap may slip off your shoulder.

              I bought the lefty version even though I shoot right handed and I am glad that I did. It's more natural to have the camera on your left when not shooting. It is very comfortable and locks the camera securely to the strap. I only wish it was a little longer. In the images I saw online (not on this site) the camera seemed to rest more on the hip than at the waist. I am 5'9" and it hits right at my waist.

                  This strap would have been perfect for me if it was not too short.This is not a modular sysrem so there is no extension made for it.Even though I am right handed I found this strap comes in a left-handed version which I prefer.

                    This is best strap i have ever used besides cotton carrier. It stays on shoulder perfectly and the neck pain is no more like traditional straps. Also the easy pull up feature is great.

                    Definitely worth the money.

                    I'm very pleased with this strap. The camera hangs at about waist level. I recently used this all day at a local amusement park, it was very comfortable. It was easy to pick up the camera, take a shot and put it down.

                        This strap is used to replace my original Canon strap. It carries the camera close to my body on my left side and takes a lot of pressure off my neck.

                          Excellent strap, I prefer the Left strap as opposed to the right one. I am right handed and it allowes me to keep my right hand free to do other stuff, open doors, reaching in my pocket...etc. It is very comfortable to wear all day long walking in the city through crowds or just out in the park, even with a 5D Mark III with battery grip and 200mm lens, the weight is not a problem when hanging from your shoulder. Even the best neck strap will never be as comfortable as this one, and this strap allows you to have the top portion of the camera free from obstruction when shooting, a neck strap does not. Once you try it you will never go back.

                            I needed a sling for a 3rd lens to use in combo with my Cotton Carrier. Did several hikes this past trip where I wanted all 3 bodies. This guy carried my 300 2.8 lens on a 7D while the other 2 bodies went on the Cotton. Works great, secure and comfortable.

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

                              I have used the RS-L for abut 4 months shooting birds and other wildlife with a SLR with long, heavy, 400mm lens. It has been great. I previously tried some home-made arangements that never worked or were uncomfortable. The RS-L is very secure and once adjusted carries the long lens comfortably and out of the way, protected from damage but quick to get in shooting position.I am a right hander, but it is much more practical to carry the camera with this lens at my left hip. There I can grab the barrel of the lens with my left hand to get into shooting position. I would say it is not so useful for a left hander as it is for all who carry a 400mm or bigger lens.

                                This strap is all I need to carry my gear safely, moving through people and picking up staff from the ground without having to hold the camera with a hand (locking it at waist level, it prevents the camera to fall on my chest when I headed down).
                                I'm a right-handed shooter but I prefer to carry the camera on the left: I want to have my right hand free to grab instantly anything on the move without worrying about the camera... this L Strap is awesome!

                                  This is an outstanding strap. It is secure comfortable and convient -- like having an extra set of hands. It works even better when combined with a QRC - 1 Quick Release Clamp (arca-type plates).

                                    I have been watching a friend use an earlier BlackRapid strap in envy -- when the Extreme came out with an orientation for left-handed shooters I put my order in. I could not be more pleased with the purchase. Though not cheap -- look at what the strap is protecting and how it is totally functional and it becomes a worthwhile accessory. Previously, I spent more energy trying to get a strap out of my way while shooting -- not the case with BlackRapid. The BlackRapid straps are well-designed, comfortable, and practical for photographers who are on the move.
