BlackRapid Breathe Overview

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.

BlackRapid Breathe Reviews

The Best Camera Strap

By Edward
Rated 5 out of 5

The Black Rapid products in general are always outstanding. This one is ideal for when you are hiking and shooting with a backpack or doing street photography around the city. It works the same as the stand alone straps they make which are very comfortable and functional. It is easy to un-hitch too, when you have to take off or get into your pack. Highly recommend this strap. I bought one for my wife and she loves it too. She can be pretty fussy about her gear.

Strap works as advertised. Very easy to use and keeps the camera secure during hikes, while still keeping the camera within very easy reach to quickly take photos while waking or hiking. Highly recommend.

The perfect rig!

This is such a robust, practical and efficient design. The rig is intuitive to use and installs to my hiking pack in less than ten seconds. I love this rig! My Fuji xt3 mounts securely and I can hike with total confidence. This is the perfect backpack camera rig! Buy it!

This strap works well with my Shimoda Action X30 backpack. I incorporated the Quick Disconnect Push Button Swivel from Kirk Enterprises, along with a Kirk L-Bracket on my Nikon Z6. All in all, a nice system.

Cumbersome & Bulky

This contraption is quite complicated to setup, cumbersome, & bulky. You have to take it apart each time you take your backpack off.

Carrying Camera with Comfort

I love the BlackRapid straps. I've used the Sport, Double Breathe, and wrist strap for a few years now. I was wondering how I'd be able to use my strap while carrying a backpack. Luckily, BlackRapid has me covered. The Backpack Breathe looked like the perfect solution. My first attempts at fastening the strap to my new backpack were a bit disappointing. The strap was a little short. A test connection here and there finally fit. I can now easily carry my camera and use it with ease, just like when using my Sport strap when not carrying a backpack.

A nice strap. Choose your backpack wisely.

Good build quality. The strap is easy to use. The biggest challenge is setting up backpack, (anchor points) so that the camera hangs where you want it to hang. Also, it takes a bit getting used to because you need to take the strap off to be able to remove your backpack which can cause you to do some juggling.
