The M to XL charcoal UltraFit Sling Strap For Men from Joby provides a safe and rapid way to carry and use your DSLR, CSC (compact system camera) or super zoom camera. The UltraFit is designed for immediate access to your camera by providing a smooth glide up to eye level. With Joby's SpeedCinch System, you can quickly adjust the strap to your comfort and shooting style. Simply pull your camera and the circular chest pivot ring in opposite directions. This custom fits the strap to the contour of your body. The strap locks in the rear for added security when moving around or in crowded places.

The 1/4" thumbscrew easily screws into the tripod socket of your camera. A built-in ball bearing inside the 1/4"-20 screw allows your camera to spin or rotate negating the need to remove the strap at all. The strap's Pivot Ring gives you the freedom to conform the strap to fit your body in a way that is both comfortable and secure. The strap is designed to evenly distribute the weight of your camera thereby minimizing strain on back, neck and muscles.

Construction of the strap is by a heat press binding technique that eliminates loose threads and any abrasive points that cause irritation while in use. Soft-edged webbing conforms to your body and is comfortable no matter where you wear the strap. Joby's UltraFit Sling Strap For Men is backed by a two-year warranty.

    At some point, I stopped taking my Nikon D200 on general outings because with the standard neck strap it felt very heavy, was a pain to carry, and with any movement at all it would swing around uncontrollably. Sure, I could pack the camera but then it's not quickly accessible, so you miss too many photo opportunities. After forcing myself to take the setup on a long hike with my two young children, (lots of picking them up, putting them down and camera jostling), it was clear I needed a better solution. That Monday I was in B&H looking for options when Jordan Manley turned me onto the UltraFit Sling Strap and demonstrated its value-add. It seemed a little pricey, but I figured I'd give it a shot. After using it on a long day of off-roading, which was the perfect test, I think it's a near-perfect solution: How I use the Product:• I use the UltraFit Sling Strap on physically demanding outings where I'm moving around a lot, and involved in the action as much as trying to capture it. • It's perfect for any of those situations where you one second you need instant access to your camera, then the next second you need two hands for something else and your big, heavy DSLR setup safely out of the way.Things that are great about it:• The UltraFit Sling Strap works as advertised! • It keeps the camera instantly accessible and always at the ready. The Quick Draw design is intuitive, easy to use and fast.• The SpeedCinch System and Security Lock work to keep the camera tight to my body and out of harm's way. Gone are the days of the camera swinging around wildly with any movement. No more getting hit in the chest as the camera swings out and back while just walking around. • The weight distributing design works. The setup doesn't' feel as heavy as it did on the standard neck strap and I'm not sick of carrying it around after a long day. Things that aren't so great: • Because the strap attaches to the camera's tripod socket, it's difficult to fit the camera in a bag with the strap attached. (It's a minor and easily remedied gripe, but I like putting the camera back in the case with the strap still attached.) I gave the product only 4 stars because I've not had it long so I can't yet speak to long term wear or durability. Though it uses high quality components and is constructed very well, so I don't anticipate any issues.

    Way better than walking around with a DSLR bouncing off of your chest! Hangs in the back and barely moves. I take my camera with me when I go out of town and I do a lot of walking when I do, so that's been a huge improvement for getting around. One thing though... Does not hold my camera in place without locking the strap in place, which the ad clearly says it will do. I have a T3i and have been using some pretty solid/heavier lenses with it and it won't hold it in place at all without locking it down. Another thing would be adjusting the strap. Sometimes it doesn't feel as if it loosens at all when I try to take it off. Still working on the adjustments there. Overall, it's still way better for me than a DSLR bouncing off of my chest for hours.

      It's a none fussy, versatile strap. Haven't had any 'coming loose' issues so far. I purchased a clip to tether the camera to the strap, just in case! (My camera will cost too much to replace, not taking any chances)

                        This strap is not only the best value, it saved my back and neck from severe pain from the stock strap with my Canon 70D. I bought this in the B&H store (fellow out of towners MUST go there next time you;re in NYC)at the suggestion of one of the many helpful salespeople. I'm an enthusiast and not a pro so I didn't need to drop the coin on a Black Rapid. So thrilled with this choice - my photog friends and family all went out and got one after I raved to them about it. Also bought the plate for tripod mounting.

                            When carrying the camera around for the day, I've always slung it across my chest. With the standard neck strap, this always results in the camera riding awkwardly, with the lens pointing outward, and the whole thing bouncing around awkwardly and a lot of friction when moving the camera up to look through the viewfinder. The Sling Strap mounts securely to the bottom of the camera, adjusts really easily, holds the camera comfortably, and swings easily up into position for picture taking. I carried around my Nikon D50 for a week with this thing, and I'm never going back. I'll be getting another one for the D200.

                                Been thinking about this a lot, and I just don't get it. Why is this camera strap so good? Why is it so superior to a standard camera strap? I have used this strap to carry my Fujifilm X-T1 (admittedly not a big heavy camera) for long periods and for some reason it feels so much more comfortable than the conventional OEM strap. Grabbing the camera and bringing it to my eye feels smooth and natural. This was a complete spur-of-the-moment purchase while mooching around B&H one day; turns out to be the best low-tech camera accessory I have ever bought.

                                  Exactly as advertised. I use it with my Canon 6d and it's great. It is secure and allows me to walk around and shoot without having to keep grabbing my camera from my bag. Very adjustable as well; I'm 6'4" and it fits great.

                                        I recently purchased this strap for a trip to Asia. within the first day the screw that attaches to the camera body loosened up and dropped my Canon 6d on the concrete floor. The 6D and my lense are now broken. Absolutely do not by this product or any Joby products. They should add a secondary safety string that attaches to the main strap attachments on the camera.

                                          This slings keeps my camera in place and out of the way when I am not taking pictures while still being readily accesible.

                                              Purchased this based on the reviews from other users. So far it has been good. Did not get to use it extensively but the quality is great and is comfortable to use.

                                              Bought this strap for myself and my son. Main reason for purchase was a more secure strap. The standard Nikon strap is ok but if a larger lense is installed then it doesn't feel quite secure. This strap mounts securely in the tripod mount. No chance of it backing out and dropping camera. The best thing about this strap is it places camera in a better position for grabbing and shooting. A good investment.

                                                I use this on my Red Rock wireless FF wheel. The strap is comfortable and it's pretty sturdy.

                                                This is the best strap I've run across. The camera hangs down on my right hip in a protected position, but swings up easily into position when needed. Much more comfortable than the full weight of the camera hanging on the back of the neck like your typical two-strap camera strap. Have not found any disadvantages to it. :)

                                                    Love this strap. Keeps your camera unobtrusive on the street but ready for instant use. I can't see how the lug could unscrew from the base once it's on tight. The rubber grommet seems to prevent that nicely. Just check it every time before you go out, I guess. I don't want to fool with the little security retainer; just another thing to get tangled up when you're bringing the camera up.I'll probably be buying at least one more of these.
