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.

    The idea of a padded strap for a heavy DSLR was very appealing. The strap is well made. My problem with the strap is the padded portion is too short when the strap is extended to the proper fit position.

          A most practical and comfortable way to carry your camera. The strap and latches are strong enough that it gives me peace of mind that it is secured, kept close to me and handy whenever I need to take quick shots while traveling.

              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.

              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!

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

                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.)

                  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 .

                      I like this strap. It holds the camera in a great, inconspicuous location when not in use. It stays firmly against the body, but not in harms way. The transition to usable position is quick and easy. I have it mounted to a Joby plate that keeps the tripod option open. It does everything I need it to - comfortably.

                        Use it for my Nikon D610.
                        Much more comfortable than a neck strap. Keeps the camera out of the way while walking / hiking - but easy to get to. You can adjust so the camera is resting out of the way at your side or hip. Camera rides good without banging against your body.
                        Easy to slide and adjust while you are walking to get your next shot.
                        Once more B&H delivered the goods.

                          I like biking and carrying my canon camera. This strap offers ease of acceisbility and security. Camera stores safely on my back with the locking mechanism.

                          Highly recommend!!!

                          The Ultrasling strap is much more comfortible than a neck strap. You can tighten the strap so the camera is resting on your side without the camera banging against your body. It will loosen as soon as you bring the camera in position to shoot. It's great when you're walking around looking for your next shot.

                          I purchased this to help lighten the load of my Canon 6D and 24-105 (3 lbs. of gear) while waling and taking pictures. It took me a few trying to get it to hang right, but now it is second nature and quick. Teh lock level is noce for when it am hiking far distance in-between shots so that it does not drop. I attached it to my camera and then used a quarter for extra tightening and it has not budged. This week I added the Joby adapter plate as well since I do atleast 1/2 my shooting with a tripod/landscape; so not having to remove this strap and swap out my tripod plate is a big plus and highly recommend that as well for ($[$]).

                          I love this strap! The only thing is that it is a little too big for someone of my small size. Not a problem, though, as I simply cut it down and resized it and now it fits perfectly. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who isn't proficient with a sewing machine. I had read reviews where people with this strap had actually had their camera fall to the ground when the mounting screw backed out of the tripod mount. For this reason I created a failsafe strap that mounts to the camera strap mounting ring on the camera and then loops around the UltraFit Sling strap. I designed it so that it was looped big enough that it doesn't interfere with the intended function of the UltraFit strap, but not so big that it gets in the way. A 1.5" lobster clasp works great to mount the failsafe strap to the camera. Even with the work I had to put into making this UltraFit strap work for me, I would recommend it to anyone who is tired of the stock camera strap. I am a relatively small person, so few people should experience the trouble I did with the size, but I would still recommend using some sort of failsafe device for added piece of mind. Otherwise, the strap works exactly as claimed by the ads and descriptions on B&H Photo's website as well as the manufacturer's website. Great product. Give it a try.

                            This product is great for on the go shooters and photographers. Mount it and put it over your shoulder and you can move hands free. Good buy for me.

                            This strap is a hundred times better than the Canon strap that came with the camera. It take the weight off my neck and it doesn't cut into my neck. It distributes the weight on the shoulder. Love this strap.
