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):

      Of all the side straps I tried this was the most secure of all with a heavy camera. Much more than the Boss Strap I tried. Sadly my Sony A-99 and Ziess lenses were just too heavy when using more than the smallest. I had to return it to remove temptation and keep safe. Was very secure with my old Minolta lenses.

          I have only had one walk-around with this strap. Very comfortable. I am still concerned about how well the screw-in will hold, but that is just natural caution.

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

              I purchased this for use with my Canon SXHS60. I wanted a strap that connected to the bottom mounting which would allow me quick grab shooting for birds. I tend to hang my camera over my shoulder and with the UltraFit Sling Strap, it hangs my camera 'just right' at my hip and out of the way, but well within reach. The adjustments are easy and the sizing works fine 'women'...though I'm not entirely sure what that means (length?). I'm 5'8, slender build so it works fine for me.

              I have been looking for a strap that is not too complicated and also ergonomic. This sling strap does the job at an attractive price point. You can not go wrong with it.

                        Used the strap for the first time while walking around a car show. So easy to bring the camera up to a useable position while comfortable when not in use. Much better than straps that go around the neck.

                            Used to hold a waterproof point-and-shoot while riding rapids down the Colorado River. Secure and convenient. However, I do strongly recommend using the (inexpensive) Joby camera tether as insurance against the screw coming undone from the tripod mount, which happened once.

                            This isn't the best strap in the world but it gets the job done for the price. I fully plan on replacing it in a few months since I bought this one in a pinch. It works well but can be slightly cumbersome. The snap doesn't always work the way I need it to- basically it's something to use when you don't want to spend the money for a more advanced version. It was frustrating right out of the box but once I got it figured out, it did it's job. I don't know if I would recommend this strap since I think it's worth the extra money to buy a nicer one but if I needed a backup or a second shooter I'd use this product again.

                                This strap is everything you would want; it's comfortable, very functional, and doesn't scream Nikon or Canon on the front of the strap. I walked around a full day last weekend with this strap attached to my Nikon D7000 (with a 35mm attached), and it felt very comfortable. It feels very sturdy, too. You just have to remember to check often that the strap is screwed in tightly on the camera, just to be on the safe side.

                                  I recently got a new DSRL camera and the strap that came with my camera dug into the back of my neck and was not comfortable at all. I have never used a sling style strap before, but after using this strap on vacation for a week I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this strap. The the cushion on the strap is thinner than I thought it would be so I wasn't sure how comfortable it would be after a long day of use, but I had no discomfort at all wearing it. I have a pretty small frame and this fit comfortably even when wearing a backpack, but with that said, it was also comfortable for my husband to wear as well. The way the strap is designed you don't feel the weight of your camera at all, but it is right there at your side ready to shoot when you want it.

                                    This was just what I needed! I wanted a strap that I could tighten quickly as I have to take photos on the go for work. I have tried a few other straps but this has been the most appropriate for my needs

                                      This seems like a good idea, but it takes time getting over my paranoia that $ worth of equipment might fall to the floor. I could not use this without buying the Joby tether.
