        Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

        I've used wrist straps in the past, but they have been flimsy, spongy, Neoprene ones that I've never been fully confident in. I always felt like they would tear apart with minimal effort.But this BlackRapid Wrist Strap is everything I ever wanted in a wrist strap. Easy to get on and off, and it's built like it could lift an engine block.

        Just what I needed, great product!

        Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

        I looked at, and tried just about every hand strap out there and could never find one I liked. I use this on a Nikon D800. Even with heavy glass like 24-70, 70-200, this works great for me. I hate standard shoulder straps and prefer to just hold the camera and lens for most shoots. I use the shoulder sling when I need hands free and can have the camera at about waist level. Also works great,with my Manfrotto 200 QR plates. I can leave hand strap attached.

        Complements my two black rapid shoulder straps. I keep this in my pocket. I can switch between the wrist and shoulder straps as I feel the need to.

                Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

                I just received my new BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenerR and am totally pleased with it. It appears well made, sturdy and is comfortable around my wrist.

                I have dropped several cameras over the years, but now I feel more secure knowing even if the camera slips out of my grip, it will not hit the ground!!

                I am primarily a Birder, so I want my hands free to use my binoculars. Now with my Canon SX50 Super Zoom camera securely attached around my wrist, it is safe and within fast easy reach when the opportunity arises to get that documentation photo.

                    This is the perfect strap for street photography; so very much better than wrapping the long camera strap around the hand.

                        I enjoy their other products and this seemed to be up to the quality I expected. The problem was that it will not open up enough to get over my large hands. Perhaps if they offer a larger size I will get one. Had to pass this one on to a friend with smaller hands.

                          If you are tired of wrapping your neck strap around your wrist then you need this product!
                          This strap is solid and will hold your gear securely. I have a few heavy lenses and I walk many miles through rough terrain and would not ever conceder not using this strap.
                          Once you use this product you will never want to even hold your camera again without it in place.

                                Finally, freedom from the neck strap. I do have the Black Rapids shoulder harness too, and I like the fact that you can attach it to this also. I have a big wrist and hand and it fits just fine!
