    I used this strap on a trip to Europe. After a few days I switched back to the neck strap. Using a wrist strap, one hand is always occupied and it got tiring holding the camera. I also found it difficult to change lenses with this strap because you always had one hand occupied holding the camera.

    Good strap for studio work or if you have an easy access case you walk around with. For me, walking around all day exploring, this strap was not the right one.

    No more neckstraps

    By Bryan

    from Idaho

    Comments about Clik Elite Wrist Strap:

    This wrist strap has literally changed the way I feel about carrying my camera and about how mobile I feel. It quickly and easily slips onto the wrist and it adjusts appropriately. I no longer have the heavy weight of my camera hanging from my neck. My hands are more free and have more range of motion and mobility. (Let's face it-with a neck strap you still have to hold onto the camera to keep it from flopping around.) With using only the wrist strap I still have my camera secure and I am able to use all of my reach. At 1/5th, or less, of the size of the neck strap, it takes up so much less space that you know have room for an extra battery and another filter or two in your gear bag. I highly recommend this wrist strap. I will never wear my camera as a necklace again.

      Comments about Clik Elite Wrist Strap:

      I bought one for my D90 and ended up with it on my D600. Easy to put one's hand through the loop, 'self adjusts' to one's wrist and so comfortable to wear that you forget it's on your wrist.
      If you want to make a fashion statement look elsewhere but if you want a strap that's secure and functions without getting in your way ...
      It's a simple concept and it works.
      Fulfils my needs at a reasonable price, what can one say?

        I use it with a Black Rapid mount and clip so that it is easily transferred to other camera bodies.

        Burn Your Neck Strap

              Comments about Clik Elite Wrist Strap:

              I bought this strap to replace the notorious neck strap that comes as standard equipment with every new DSLR purchase.

              Pros:

              - Nice construction and higher quality than many other "cheap" straps

              - Beats fumbling with an awkward neck strap all day

              - Added level of security if you are blessed with butter fingers

              Cons:

              - Colors may not be for everyone

              - Strap is a basic pass through design where the cord will tighten around your wrist if dropped (no wrist adjustment)

              - Be nice if this strap came with a quick disconnect to the camera body as I find I remove this strap when using a tripod or monopod for extended periods

              My personal opinion is that all neck straps should be burned. Neck straps are uncomfortable, awkward to use, and are just basically in the way a majority of the time. The next best alternative for casual carry of a DSLR body is a wrist strap and for the money this strap is a decent buy.

              Personally I have found that I leave my camera attached to a monopod most of the time and for this reason I do not use this wrist strap as much as I planned.

              This strap does its job well. It also is quite comfortable around the wrist. My only issue is that it only seemed to come in this red and white option, and using it with my 6D, it seems very bright.

                  I bought this to take pictures on rides in Disney. I wanted something that if the camera slips out of my hand it won't go far. Work very well. So far I think I will keep this on my camera instead of the standard strap.

                      Comments about Clik Elite Wrist Strap:

                      It does what it sets out to do. I do have minor complaints. If you have narrow wrists, the strap doesn't cinch up tight enough around your wrist. It's not going to fall off, but I'd prefer it to be tight. More color options would be welcome, perhaps a green cord and black wrist cushion.

                      At the end of the day it's comfortable, has great adjustability, and is going to prevent you from dropping your camera. If Clik would address the little issues I have above, it easily be 5/5.

                        Put it on and thought I'd never take it off. Two days later, I went kayaking and realized I wanted my neck strap. But besides for those five hours, this is all I use.

                          Freedom is what this strap affords. It slips on your wrist easily and cinches up quickly, as you simply lift your wrist as needed, to keep your camera tethered to you.The fabric is highly breathable for those " hot, hot" days and shoots;-)The tether is long enough to enable you to wield your camera freely, yet short enough to keep it close at hand to avoid swinging it into a passing horse ;-)Best strap I have used…No more tossing unwelcome lengths of nylon, foam, etc. when adjusting my camera position.Buy it and lighten your load - and life.

                                I was looking for a wrist strap but most of then uses the tripod hole. Mine is not available as I leave my tripod quick connect plate on my DSLR permanently. So this strap was perfect for my need. Seems robust to support the tension if I drop my DSRL.

                                The only negative thing I'd say is the the red color of the strap is not discrete enough. I do not want to draw the thieves' attention. So I would prefer the strap to be black.

                                I don't play well with my toys and this strap is an excellent safety measure when using the camera without the neck strap. It's comfortable, secure and easy to remove from your wrist when need be. I do quite a bit of festival/concert shooting and tend to jump around and get jostled a lot so this is the perfect proverbial 'ounce of prevention' I need to save a camera I can ill afford to replace.

                                  I have problems with my neck and shoulders and as a result I hesitated to get a DSLR for years. When I finally got up the courage to get one (Sony Alpha SLT A65 - beautiful camera), I ordered the Clik Elite wrist strap to go with it. I tried the OEM strap exactly once and ended up at the chiropractor the next day. The Clik Elite wrist strap has been on my camera ever since. It's wide and nicely padded. It is quite large, especially for someone with a petite frame like me, but I twisted the red part back around on itself and now it's perfect for me. No more neck and shoulder pain!

                                      The Clik Elite is extremely confortable and it gives a very secure connection to the camera. The noose design always keeps the fit very snug but always comfortable in the photographers hand. I would expect this wrist strap to sell for double the price. It does not get any better than this.

                                        I've never liked neck straps, and I wanted something more secure than a grip. This wrist strap is the perfect solution. I'm completely confident when I use it, but it remains loose on my wrist when I'm not putting tension on the strap. I was worried that it would be too snug, but it only tightens on my wrist with tension, and even then it is completely comfortable. Changing lenses is easier than with a neck strap, and it stays out of the way when shooting and adjusting settings. Well worth it at twice the cost.
