            I couldn't be happier with my BlackRapid Wrist Strap. I love my video camera but when the strap broke it became awkward to handle. The BR Wrist Strap is the best in construction, price, and fit.

                This is an excellent, well manufactured product that is over engineered for my use. I work with one camera / lens combo in my hand. I never hang the camera on the strap, but use the strap in case of a slip or bump. A lighter weight karabiner and strap will work better for me. A bit noisy, but an fine product. The tripod lugs are very good, and with a different clip / strap (which I will make) will work very nicely. Your use may be different - I would recommend it.

                        The Black Rapid Wrist Strap w/ FastenR FR-3 is a must have when you want a secure hold on your camera without feeling like your strapped in for a bungee jump. The black material is strong and the fastener attaches tightly to any camera's tripod mount. No more spills in water or hard pavement and it even comes with a Lockstar Carabiner Protector that I wasn't expecting. It's perfect for shooting on the fly. I would purchase this for all my camera's.

                            I really like the idea of a wrist strap, and this one has worked well for me. I do a lot of street photography and I feel much freer using a wrist strap rather than a strap that goes around your body. Another great thing about this is I also have the Black Rapid strap that goes around the body, so I bring both when I'm out shooting and can easily change between the two. The only reason I give it four stars is I think this wrist strap is not quite there -- the construction could be more sturdy, thick, etc. But overall, I do recommend this.

                            I've had this strap for almost a month attached to my a6000 and love it. Very well made strap and comfortable. I will probably purchase the shoulder strap for long outings.

                            I purchased both the Black Rapid Sport and Wrist Strap at the same time as I believe I will use the wrist strap on shorter shoots, which has been the case so far, and the BR Sport for longer outings. The wrist strap feels like a quality piece and so far has provided great support to my 5DM3 with a rather heavy 24-70 lens. I have large hands and the strap, which is adjustable, fits me fine. The connector pice that screws into the tripod mount of your camera seems very strong and secure. I am very happy with my purchase so far. Thanks for the quick shipping and great service B&H!

                                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.

                                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.

                                    Fits, strong, good looking... a safe and sure way to walk around with the camera in one hand -- I left the neck strap attached.
