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.

      Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Men (Charcoal, M to XL):

      This is a great strap for active photo enthusiasts as it will keep your camera out of the way, when not in use. Unlike traditional camera straps, it allows the camera to rest on your side more comfortably and prevents the camera from bumping around too much. It holds my SONY DSC-RX10 well, although there are a couple of drawbacks. One is that it seems that the camera is too heavy for the strap as it will start to loosen without the strap being in the 'lock' mode. The second drawback is that the RX10's rear LCD screen is not able to extend into the downward-facing position as the point of connection for this strap hinders its movement in that direction. The screen is able to extend into the upward facing position, however. Please keep this in mind if you are considering pairing this strap with the SONY DSC-RX10.

        I had replaced the original Nikon strap that came with the D3100 with one from CarrySpeed (a now defunct company) - and recently with this one from Joby. Fits great, feels good on the body. Works well, and I don't worry about the security of the camera.

            Like most people, I found the generic Canon strap that came with my DSLR very uncomfortable. So I picked up this Joby sling strap and am impressed. Fits snugly to your body, the build is extremely durable, and it's easy to use. The included directions are sparse so check out their website for a video tutorial on how to set up the strap (less than 5 minutes). I will never use my awkward Canon strap again!

                  I used this strap at my friends wedding and on a daily basis. It's very comfortable and convenient for my Sony NEX6 which I sometimes use a flash and additional lens.

                  I love how the camera lays against the body making it more comfortable to carry the camera with added equipment.

                              First time user of a sling strap but is a lot better than the factory provided neck strap. Easy to slide to the 'shoot' position from the hip. Seams to ease the strain on the neck.

                              It's very handy, comfortable and useful to be able to use your camera with only one hand.
                              Sometimes it doesn't slide as smooth as I wished but it's a great product anyway.

                                I was pleasantly surprised with the quality build of the product. I feel very comfortable with my camera dangling at my side with the secure fit of the screw in the camera's tripod mount.

                                It is much more convenient to pull up and use the camera with this strap than it is with the standard-issue straps. Very worth the money!

                                Great sling for my Nikon D3100. I can easily move camera from shooting position to small of back. Also swings well enough to have camera on lap when sitting. I wore this sling for 7 hours straight on July 4 with no discomfort. And maybe most importantly, I feel secure that it's not going do "drop" my camera when it's hanging off my back.

                                The only downfall I can see is that it is not real easy to adjust as the clip, while secure, is not simple to use; especially when around back. I use the sling slightly looser than some may, so it's not reall a problem for me. I can swing it from back to shooting position without adjusting. (I'm 5' 7" with a medium build.)

                                I have been researching Sling Straps and found quite an array of sizes and price points. The Joby strap fits me great (XL type of guy) and allows me to carry my DLSR with 500mm lens in place safely and comfortably.

                                  This strap is very easy to adjust, but doesn't come loose unless you want it to. The only reason I'm giving four stars instead of five is that the shoulder strap could be a bit more comfy, but for the price it's OK.

                                    This is an amazing strap. I am impressed first of all with the build quality. The interface between the camera and the strap is a machined aluminum "hub" with a fantastic, secure tripod mount connection. The red anodized component rolls freely in the socket and allows for maximum movement. The strap itself is sturdy and made of premium materials. I enjoy the freedom it provides when "unlocked" as it functions just like the Blackrapid designs, but when locked in position it will sit securely at the middle of your back without bouncing around, which is great in my lime of work (I work for a nature conservation group and spend a lot fo time doing photography in the field). Fantastic strap and a great price as well.

                                    I first bought the Joby UltraFit . Then the Joby Pro Sling . They both look almost identical but both use different materials . The Pro Sling is heavier duty for heavier SLR camera and lens . You really can't go wrong with ether one . Extremely happy with both straps . Especially after a long day carrying around my camera taking photos . It is a world of difference compared to a standard camera strap . I also had many people interested in this strap after seeing it in use .
