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):

    This sling strap has changed my life as far as having the ability to carry a large camera and telephoto lens all day on a recent trip to Europe. It was comfortable and distributed the weight easily. the ability to grab my camera and take a shot made it effortless. I can't recommend this enough!!

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

    A little difficult to figure out how to set it up, but once I figured it out, it was great, I take my 2 dogs to the beach early in the morning and let them run and never took my camera because it was always in way when I was tossing the ball for them or just getting their leashes on and if. With this is==I can take care of them and still have the camera out of the way but ready when I want it.

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

          I was skeptical about a new strap, I never liked the traditional ones that come with cameras. Finding that 'perfect' fit and still allows quick access to my camera took some time. Bringing my camera up from the side to shooting works well I have not had issues missing a shot.

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

          This was my first sling strap and it is much better than a neck strap. The shape worked well for me, but could have used more padding. The strap has a tendency to shift, which makes it hard to raise and lower the camera.

              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.

                      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.

                                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.

                                  Perfect for hiking/traveling. It felt very comfortable on a long hike and I was able to quickly setup for all my shots.

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

                                    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.
