Of course this comes in handy for official photo shoots, but I'm very excited use it for fun outings now, too! I've got 3 little kids, and I often don't take my "big camera" with me because I joke that it's like a fourth kid. With this strap, taking my camera is so much more fun and less stressful.

This strap is really comfortable, and I love that it locks in place behind my back so I can bend down and use both hands (ie. pick up my 2-year-old). I considered this one and the Black Rapid strap, but I liked the strap-locking feature of the Joby. It works perfectly. I don't always lock it, and it stays pretty well. However when I do lock it in place, it's easy enough to quickly unlock it with one hand, slide it up, and take a picture.

I love that the strap isn't too bulky with too much padding, so it fits easily in my bag. Some reviews I read said they would like more padding, but I actually like the lack of it. Plus, the material gives slightly and molds fine to my shoulder. Highly recommended!

I had particular trouble figuring out how to use the strap. The picture drawings in the box were not so clear. Once I got the strap adjusted for me (I'm rather large and very busty), I love it. Haven't used it extensively yet, but I think I am going to really enjoy not having a camera hanging around my neck all day long at theme parks and will love having the camera at my disposal.

    Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

    I do a lot of hiking and usually carry my camera. I needed a strap that was light, would work with my backpack and would keep the camera from swinging forward into the rocks during tight climbs. This does everything I need and was neither expensive nor cumbersome.

          I love this product due to being able to take on and off and change to another camera so easily. I am going to get more than one. The strap allows for a comfortable and versatile handling. Love the curve for a female figure in the strap.

            Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

            Bought this to attach to my new Canon 70D, and I love it. It's easy to adjust and the camera hangs perfectly over my abdomen or I can sling around my back. I can easily and quickly whip my camera up to shooting position with the strap sliding smoothly. The only thing I haven't gotten used to is the edge of the strap on my neck. I wish it were a little bit softer as I've caught myself moving it off of my neck a bit to avoid chafing or just rubbing. I'm looking into adding something to the edge of the strap to alleviate that. Otherwise, from a functional standpoint, it's a great strap. The locking mechanism is solid and easy to get off and on.

            Comfortable sturdy strap

            from Austin, Texas, USA

            Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

            This strap is comfortable and feels much sturdier than my camera's default strap from Nikon. The mechanism is actually pretty convenient and easy to operate. I'd recommend this product to ladies looking for a more comfortable across-the-chest strap for sure.

              Perfect. I don't like the regular straps because they hurt my neck and bounce when I walk. This is comfortable and easy to grab when I want to take a photograph. Would definitely recommend.

              When I am out in the field shooting, I need the camera to be tight so it doesn't swing and hit up against rocks, etc. This strap adjusts instantly to fit up under my arm where it is safe.

                The Joby strap works great. Much more comfortable than having the heavy camera around my neck and more secure than wearing it slung over my shoulder. Since I am petite carrying my camera can feel burdensome and this strap makes it easier.

                The description was exact. It's very comfortable, easy to use, once you get the hang of how it works. I'm fairly tall and it did not seem small to me as other have stated. It's made well and I found it convient to use when you need both hands!

                    Convenient little strap contoured for the female figure. It does attach from the bottom using the tripod mount screw so a quick release plate cannot be used while the sling is installed. No biggie though if you want a strap for walking around.

                          I use this for taking semi professional pictures. It's great when you have to have both hands for adjusting props and needing quick access to your camera.
                          I can't think of anything better.

                            This strap works like a charm (well...that's according to my wife). We have the regular sling strap and it wears well on a man and I got the woman version above and my wife says it is really comfortable. She is a petite woman wearing a rather large Canon DSLR and this strap is perfect! Well made, good looking and very functional. I'll never use a regular strap again. Joby is the best!

                                My wife ordered this and I think she didn't watch the WEB demo carefully enough - she doesn't love it, but I don't fault the product and might order the larger version for myself.

                                It is a handy strap that EITHER (but not simultaneously) lets you keep your camera ready to shoot or lets you tuck it behind you for trekking about - a flip-lever release is used to hold in place and then you release it to allow it to come around. Watch the WEB vid - works just like they describe.

                                  I love this strap. It is much better than the ones that come standard with the DSLR camera's. It allows me to move my camera out of the way while still being secure and close to me so I can quickly grab it.
