I bought this double sling after looking at the Black Rapid double sling. I did not like the BR fastening to the tripod mount for several reasons, including the fact I would lose my tripod mount, but primarily because I do not think this is the proper place to carry a camera from as it is not designed for that. Plus, I could buy 4 of the OpTechs for the price of one Black Rapid, and I think the OpTech is more comfortable and quite a bit lighter. Another good point is that I can unbuckle the sling parts and use them individually on my OpTech Pro strap pads, making the standard Pro straps into 2 Pro Sling straps! A very cool thing in my opinion. My original OpTech Pro strap is over 30 years old and still works as good as it did when I bought it, a testament to their build quality when you know how much I have put them through!

The guy in the demo video is very big in size as contrary to me. As a 187 cm tall and 70 kg weight i try to use it with nikon d800+grip with 24-70 2.8 on the right and the d810 with no grip an the 85 1.8g on the left. I think that because of my body structure when im using the left lighter side all the right side and the weight it has make the all system to lean to the right and make the all setup fall down and thus uncomfortable. I think it is best for a light camera/lens combo on both sides and for larger peaople. It lacks the sternum straps on the back and front like in the blackrapid and if it had it that would make it a winner.

    Comments about OP/TECH USA Double Sling (Black):

    Since I have all Op/Tech straps on my cameras, this Double Sling works well. I'm very pleased. Having 2 cameras around my neck isn't a chore for me anymore.
    In fact it feels better than just having 1 camera.

            Comments about OP/TECH USA Double Sling (Black):

            The double sling from OP/TECH is a great product. Well made, with easy attachment points, this sling allows you to have 2 cameras at the ready at all times while keeping the ability to use your hands when needed. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars was what appears to have been an oversight in the design - a chest strap to keep the sling secure to the shooter. I have seen other reviews which cited the same thing so I can't say I didn't know before the purchase, and it has not proven to be a deal breaker for using it, just an improvement for future iterations.

                So far, so good. I didn't give it 5 stars since the left/right male/female orientation of the snaps don't account for left/right camera position. I have OP/TECH neck straps for both cameras with the same left/right male/female positions. The left camera connections for this sling are correct. The right camera connections should be reversed to keep the cameras in the same orientation. Pretty minor but you can't change the positions since the straps are sewn. I used two of the included connections to create a sternum strap to make it feel more secure.

                  I use the single OP/TECH sling most of the time with one camera, so the double sling is perfect for when I want to carry two cameras. Uses the same attachments as the single sling, making it easy to switch. Great product.

                      I tried this set-up, but it is just not for me. I give it three stars for good quality components, but to me the whole set-up is just utterly uncomfortable and I don't like how the cameras just dangle and bounce there on the sides. I'm back to the good old camera straps that were supplied with the cameras.

                        This double sling is very easy to use, light weight and has been holding a D610 with a 70-200mm and a battery grip and a D800 with a 24-70 very nicely. The cameras don't' shift around too much and the relief on my neck is enormous.

                          I often carry two cameras (one with a wide angle and one with a telephoto). I have tried several products and systems for doing this. I am aware of the quality of OP/Tech products as I own others. The double sling carries two cameras in a position that makes them quickly and easily accessible while at the same time allowing the user to wear them for long periods without suffering discomfort. The sling is well made, easy to operate and very modestly priced, especially when compared with products from other companies that cost almost four times as much.

                            This product arrived the day before a wedding shoot, and so I wore it without any practice. First, it became a favorite accessory in the first ten minutes of use, but second - the darned thing wouldn't stay on my shoulders. Just look at the picture! It kept slipping off every chance it got. There's a simple remedy: Install a strap that goes across the chest that fastens and unfastens easily. I'll come up with one myself before using it again, but the manufacturer really should have caught this. Great price at $ bucks, even with this shortcoming. Also, the camera connections could use some more thought.

                            This sling solves a major problem for shooting events with 2 cameras. No longer do they collide when moving from place to place. Both cameras are ready and in reach at all times. Easy on the neck & shoulders. Compatible with other Op/Tech straps so you can switch back & forth between a single strap and this dual sling. Minor issues include that it takes quite a bit of adjusting the first time to get a good fit and easy reach. I do wish they used the pro loop connectors (but I have them on my single straps). Getting it on/off with cameras attached is not recommended. I shoot jazz musicians in performance at various clubs, and I have to be careful how I sit on my barstool with the sling on.

                              I really like the versitility and the ability to make differnt combiation setups with other OP/Tech straps. Very usfull for when you need one or two cameras and it really takes the weight off my neck.

                                  If you shoot weddings and events that require you to carry 2 camera's this is the system for you!
                                  Am 5'3, female and so have had to shorten the length of the product considerably so the cameras don't hit the floor when I kneel down to take a shot.

                                  I love the fact that the camera's are attached to the sling from the OEM attachment points with a quick release catch as opposed to the 1 point attachment from the underside of the camera! The most sensitive part of the camera is the "head" area if the other systems fail the camera falls directly to the floor on its most sensitive part. I much prefer this product as even if for some reason the attachment fails, the camera will drop to the floor as intended from the OEM standpoint. So in this area this product gets a BIG PLUS and I feel safe with the fact that there are 2 contact points holding it in place securely! Also the underside is free for a tripod quick release! unlike other systems on the market.
                                  I like the fact I can detach a single camera quickly and easily and give it to my second shooter if necessary. The only complaint I have is that this product is clearly built for a tall big guy I wish there was a tad smaller size for women. Highly recommend this product for top value --- superior functionality and safety compared with other more expensive products at a price that is realistic and affordable. Nice job Op/Tech.

                                    At the time, I couldn't fork out the $100+ for other options, but needed to have a dual camera strap. By chance, I came across this generously priced option and wanted to give it a try. I recently shot a wedding with two 60D's: one with the behemoth 70-200 2.8 and one with the 24-70 2.8. I never once questioned the reliability of this strap and felt safe and secure it would hold without moving around a great deal. This system also saved time when it came to tripod mounting, as I was able to keep a plate mounted to the camera. Great alternative to the pricey camera mount systems!

                                        This really helps keep weight off my neck when I'm shooting events with two cameras. Can carry both cameras at sides, one at side and one on chest, or even two at sides and one on chest. Sliding action is smooth.

                                            using it to stabilize my DSLR rig, which is not it's intended purpose but it works fantastically for me.

                                                Wish I had this earlier. It makes shooting with two (2) camera bodies a snap.
