BlackRapid 362001 overview

  • 1Description

The BlackRapid Backpack Breathe Camera Strap is designed to integrate with a backpack that features two shoulder straps so that it can be worn across a right or left-handed user's body, draped from one backpack shoulder strap to the opposing hip. A connected camera can then rest upside-down along the hip so that it can be quickly raised for use.

Aluminum-alloy snap-lock carabineers allow the Backpack Breathe to securely attach to any D-rings or loops along a backpack's shoulder strap that are typically above a backpack's sternum strap. The other end of the Backpack Breathe can then be clipped below the ladder-lock buckle on the backpack's other shoulder strap. This design allows right or left-handed photographers to sling their camera along either side of their backpack while adding a minimal 4.5 ounces to their load. Whether moving uphill or along a flat trail, the length of the Backpack Breathe can be easily adjusted by its own front D-ring and ladder-lock buckle. Spring-loaded bumper locks that can be slid up and down the length of this camera strap's nylon webbing make it especially easy to limit excess camera movement along the length of the Backpack Breathe.

To attach to a camera or a lens, the BlackRapid Backpack Breathe Camera Strap features a durable, brass and zinc-alloy CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. An included BlackRapid FR-5 FastenR Breathe creates a connection point using a camera or lens's 1/4"-20 tripod mount. The FR-5 FastenR Breathe has a large, integrated D-ring for easy use with BlackRapid straps that utilize a CR-3 ConnectR.

The length of this strap is adjustable from 20 to 31.5" and its nylon webbing measures up to 1.0" wide. A nylon pouch is included for storage and transport, as well as a plastic BlackRapid Lockstar Breathe Carabiner Protector, which is compatible with BlackRapid straps that feature a CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. By folding over a CR-3 ConnectR, the Lockstar Breathe prevents unintentional user contact with a CR-3 ConnectR that could cause it to accidentally unlock. Additionally, it helps to block the metal surface of a CR-3 ConnectR from scratching a connected camera or lens.

  • Aluminum-alloy snap-lock carabineers allow secure attachment to any D-rings or loops along a backpack's shoulder strap that are typically above a sternum strap, as well as onto the backpack's other shoulder strap below its ladder-lock buckle to form a cross-body strap

    BlackRapid 362001 reviews

    Backpack Breathe Camera Strap is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Rapid Versatility This is to address an issue that many Black Rapid owners are not aware of. You do not need to unscrew it to use it on a tripod. I have an L-Bracket (or could just be a plate) on my camera. I then screw the BR strap to a similar clamp that matches my tripod and it stays there. Then you just detach the camera by loosening the clamp from the L-bracket and place the camera on the tripod plate and tighten. The other clamp stays on the BR Strap forever. I recently put a RRS QD attach point on my BR strap and it just snaps in to my RRS L-Bracket. If you figure it out for your own situation, there is never a need to unscrew from strap, just find a clamp that matchs your tripod fitting for the strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great This strap in well made, and does what it needs to do. I like to have my camera out when hiking but I don't always want to carry it. This is a great option you still need to keep a hand on the camera so it doesn't flap a round but the wait is off your hands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Idea in a product Great construction and easy to use. Does what it's supposed to do. Only draw back is if you have to take your pack off frequently it is a little bit of a pain...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what my backpack needed! I use the BlackRapid Backpack Breathe Camera Strap with a Lowepro ProTactic Backpack. One side of the strap connects perfectly to the rings located on the front of the backpack's shoulder straps and the other side connects onto a loop on the bottom of the pack on the other side. The BlackRapid backpack strap allows me to have quick access to my camera. With the camera on the BlackRapid strap, I no longer need to bring my backpack to my side to remove and use my camera. I now use my backpack only to store and change lenses. My camera can now remain outside my backpack, located conveniently to my side at hip level. When I want to shoot, the camera slides smoothly up the camera strap to eye level. I like that the camera hangs upside-down when resting on the strap. It makes for an easy get to position when my camera is resting at my side. This strap is amazingly slick and fun to use. I have to admit that I find myself playing around with it, like I'm some sort of gunslinger, showing off how quick I can be on the draw. I appreciate the movable clips provided on the BlackRapid camera strap. The two clips are easily adjusted, allowing me to restrict the movement of the camera to stay in one place on the strap when I am planning not to shoot. All of the attachment parts seem well made and designed. I keep the bottom strap strapped to the bottom of my backpack and store the rest of the strap in a small pocket on my backpack when I am not using the strap. Then, all I have to do is remove the strap from the small backpack pocket and connect the free end to the opposite shoulder strap . . . and I'm ready to go! I wish the piece that that screws into the camera (Camera Socket Attachment) was designed so that the camera could sit flat when attached, and if the design of the socket attachment would permit a tripod or mono-pod to be screwed into it without having to unscrew it from the camera. I absolutely love the BlackRapid Backpack Breathe Camera Strap!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this system Purchased this and the BR Breathe Strap at the same time. I like the concept and the way it keeps the camera handy at all time. Suggest pairing with a QD system such as the one I got from Acratech.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I have several straps, including Black Rapid, nothing is comfortable with a back pack! Found this one, it works perfect. Distributed the weight evenly, even with a 7DM2 & 100-400!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alternative way to carry camera Great for longer hike or when out with pack and camera. Have to take part of it off, if you get into bag. Not as useful for short trips, very handy for longer trips
