BlackRapid Double Breathe Overview

This BlackRapid Double Breathe Camera Harness accommodates two cameras by allowing them to hang from the right and left shoulders. The cameras can then rest upside-down along both the right and left hips so they can be quickly raised for use. Even when connected to two large cameras with their attached lenses, the Double Breathe remains comfortable to wear due to its resilient and breathable mesh pads which cushion the back and shoulders. The pads' structure optimizes air circulation between the wearer and the harness, which works to remove and minimize perspiration in warm and hot environments. For those with a thin or small build, the Double Slim Breathe Camera Harness can be chosen for a better fit.

To attach to a camera or a lens, both of the Double Breathe Camera Harness' webbings feature a durable, brass and zinc-alloy CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. Also provided is a BlackRapid FR-5 FastenR Breathe for every carabiner. Each FR-5 FastenR Breathe creates a connection point using a camera or lens's 1/4"-20 tripod mount and has a large, integrated D-ring for easy use with BlackRapid webbings that utilize a CR-3 ConnectR.

The length of each webbing is adjustable from 36.0 to 63.0" and measures up to 1.0" wide. Spring-loaded bumper locks that can be slid up and down the length of the strap's webbings make it especially easy to limit excess camera movement when using the Double Breathe. Additionally, the webbings from a separately-available BlackRapid Binocular Breathe Strap can be connected to the front of this harness so that it can hold a binocular or a third camera against the wearer's chest.

When only one camera needs to be carried, the Double Breathe's front sternum and rear stabilizing straps can be disconnected to create two individual cross-body camera straps. One strap can be worn across a right-handed user's body, draped from the left shoulder to the right hip, while the other can be worn across a left-handed user's body, draped from the right shoulder to the left hip. Either individual strap allows a connected camera to rest upside-down along the hip so it can be quickly raised for use.

A nylon pouch is included for storage and transport, as well as two plastic BlackRapid Lockstar Breathe Carabiner Protectors, both of which are compatible with BlackRapid straps that feature a CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. By folding over a CR-3 ConnectR, a 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.

  • Accommodates two cameras by allowing them to hang from the right and left shoulders
  • Connected cameras can rest upside-down along the right and left hips so that they can be quickly raised for use
  • Large, 2.5 to 4.0" moisture-wicking, breathable mesh pads cushion the back and shoulders while comfortably distributing the weight of connected gear
  • Durable, brass and zinc-alloy CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiners for each webbing attach to camera or lens's 1/4"-20 tripod mount with one of two provided BlackRapid FR-5 FastenR Breathe
  • 1.0"-wide, nylon webbings with adjustable, 36.0 to 63.0" length
  • Spring-loaded bumper locks that can be slid up and down the webbings make it especially easy to limit excess camera movement
  • Separately-available two-pack of BlackRapid CoupleR Breathe Straps can be used to further stabilize both webbings
  • BlackRapid Lockstar Breathe Carabiner Protectors each prevent unintentional user contact with a CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner that could cause it to accidentally unlock, and helps block a CR-3 ConnectR from scratching a connected camera or lens
  • Webbings from a separately-available BlackRapid Binocular Breathe Strap can be connected to allow a binocular or third camera to be held against the wearer's chest
  • Front sternum and rear stabilizing straps can be disconnected to create two individual cross-body camera straps for either right of left-handed users
  • Nylon pouch for storage and transport

BlackRapid Double Breathe Reviews

Makes My Life BETTER

Been a Black Rapid fan for a decade now. Just bought this FINALLY and it has made my event shooting experience so much better. I used to hold one cam and then strap on the other cam. Never having my hands free. This allows me to not have to hold anything in between shots. It's soooooo enjoyable. FYI I'm about 6ft 280lbs. It's a dream right out of the package.

If you carry two cameras at once, you need this strap. Comfortable and convenient. No criss crossing straps choking me, balances weight nicely. I lost my first years ago and wish I'd bought a replacement sooner.

This makes shooting with two cameras much easier. The cameras easily slide out of place to use one or the other. I don't know how I live without the BlackRapid for so long.

I like the older version better

I've use Black Rapid straps for years and it was time to upgrade my double strap. The back clip is difficult to use and I much prefer the older velcro design. I used to be able to disconnect the two straps without taking them off but that's impossible with the clip in the back.

Works For Others, But Not Me

As someone who frequently uses two cameras during public events, I had thought about this product for some time. I use a variety of cameras, but purchased it for an event where I wanted to use a Leica M-style camera and a Fuji GFX. The need to remove the bottom plate to change the battery and the card was made more complicated with the screw in attaching mechanism. I decided given the lightness of the Leica, it just wasn't worth the extra hassle. With the Fuji GFX 100S, I could not attach the secondary safety backup strap because it was too short. A couple of other points. The instructional video was horrible. No closeups, the model spoke way to fast, and when it comes to stupidity this video topped the mark: The BlackRapid is black and the model wore a black shirt, so you couldn't really see what he was doing. The online instructions are completely inadequate, starting with the minute type necessary because the instructions were in five or six languages, all on one sheet, with diagrams. BlackRapid needs to get its act together and put more thought into its videos and instructions.

Looking for a harness to better distribute the weight of my a7iii and 200-600 lens than a regular crossbody strap does. Can this be used in the harness configuration with one camera only? Would it need anything else to stabilize the side without the camera?
Asked by: Lori-Anne
The Double Breathe harness can be used to carry two camera bodies as well as only one camera body. The harness can also be separated in to two single slings (like the Sport Breathe sling) if desired. We recommend attaching a Brad underarm stabilizer to help the sling stay put on the shoulder when used as a single sling.

Could I retrofit this system to use QD swivel connectors (Magpul/RRS/Kirk), similar to this?: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1545778-REG/kirk_qd_oval_qd_quick_disconnect_oval.html
Asked by: David
I had the same question. My proposed solution is to cut off the metal loop part, then open the QD ring, slip it onto the strap, then close the ring. I will try this and see how it works. Otherwise, I will have to attach the QD connector loop to the carabiner.

How much weight can be carried with this system? I currently have a Canon 5D mkIV with battery grip and 70-200 for one side, and a 7d mkII with battery grip and 300mm f2.8 for the other side. Needless to say, it's a good bit of weight and a lotta bit of $$$. Will typically be walking around at racing events for 8-10 hours easily. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
