The orange Floating Wrist Strap from Ruggard is designed for use with waterproof point-and-shoot cameras and other waterproof devices. Its brightly colored 6" floatation padding allows your camera to safely dangle below and is also easy to spot in the water. A plastic push button slip knot is used to tighten the 1/4" nylon strap around your wrist.

There's a quick-release connector with a loop that detaches from the main strap and threads through your camera's strap lug. Back thread the loop through the lug, reconnect the quick-release connector to the main strap and you're ready to go swimming. Each side of the main strap is 3" long. Dual faux-leather panels adorn the sides for a touch of style. The Floating Wrist Strap is backed by Ruggard's limited one-year warranty.

    While snorkling in Bora Bora, taking pictures with nearby docile reef sharks, the camera got loose; I thought the camera was safe, since the strap kept the camera from sinking to the bottom. However, one of the reef sharks seemed to mistake the floation strap for a fish, and bit it and took it away. Never did recover the camera.

    Would recommend using this in addition to the small strap that comes with the camera, rather than using just the floatation strap alone.

      Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Yellow):

      I bought this for my Go Pro because I was planning to take pictures in the ocean and didn't want to lose it... This thing really floats and is bright enough to see from far far away. The wrist band fits comfortably around my wrist for hours. I took my camera everywhere and I just left the strap on my wrist the whole time. It looks fashionable too i felt cool :D

      Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

      A float is essential for an underwater camera. Else you could lose your investment AND those great photos you've taken.

      So I bought a big float at a boating store. It wasn't until after several uses that I wondered whether the float would actually support the camera. A five-gallon bucket provided the test site...and the camera sunk.

      It was easy to find the weight of my Canon D20 camera, 8 oz., in the manual and online. Lots of sites sell these floats but B&H is the only one to actually list what weight each supports.

      The other review comments apply--the wrist strap is huge and doesn't necessarily tighten enough for small hands but it works fine for me.

      Outstanding. I took it on a cruise, went diving and it performed like it should. Took it out of my wrist and up it went saving my camera. Highly recommended.

        Works with action cameras as well

        By GG

        from Atlanta

        Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

        After losing one action camera (GoPro) in the ocean in Puerto Rico last Xmas, I bought a new one and bought this floating wrist strap on sale to try it out. It worked really well and was very convenient. I tested it in the pool and it was able to handle the weight of my camera with the waterproof case which is kinda bulky. I didn't have problems like other users said that it was too lose on their wrist and My wrists are the smallest ever (I can wrap around my fingers easily around them). I recommend this not only for regular cameras but also for action cameras.

        Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

        Does it need a review? I guess so! My favorite thing about this, other than that it fits on your wrist, and that it floats, is that it's orange. Orange you glad I didn't make a corny joke about the color?!

        I think this strap is quite strapping. It's also possible to attach part of this strap to a camera, and keep the floating bit separate, as it has a detachable quick release clasp. It is more complicated that it sounds, but the crux is that you can attach the floating part quickly if the occasion calls for it OR you can remove it quickly if you're worried about looking like a dork.

        Before purchasing this product, you probably want to seriously consider three factors:

        1) You probably want to use this with devices that are waterproof or at least water resistant. If it isn't, then don't get this, unless you're looking for extra padding, in which case do. Either way is fine by me. 2) Does it match with orange? This is a very crucial point that most photographers and some stylists may wish to take into account. 3) Is my device light enough to keep buoyant? If your answer is no, consider getting as many of these as necessary to keep your device afloat.

        It also comes in yellow, if you're that kind of person (you know what I mean?)

              After losing my Nikon AW100 in the lake, I bought a Nikon AW110 and this wriststrap before going to the ocean. Used it while snorkeling and in the pool. Worked just like it was supposed to and I came home with my camera! I only wished it came with a regular wrist strap to attach when not around water.

                I have a strap on my waterproof PaS. I use it for shallow scuba or snorkel. I have been usding it with a strap, but worry when I need two hands that it might slip away. This solves it all. The strap is comfortable and I can easily use the camera while it is attached, in fact, it keeps the camera at ready. I I do drop it, the strap keeps it on the surface and is very easy to spot. I looked at several products for this task and this is the best solution.

                  I haven't had any real world opportunities to test it out, but threw it in the pool and it floated. Connector and string seem well made and I like the quick disconnect feature as the hole in the camera isn't the easiest to thread.

                            Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Yellow):

                            Bought this to use with Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 digital camera which is water proof; since I knew I'd be using it around water, kayaking, boating, etc., I felt that a floating strap would be wise; strap is high quality and very effective!
