Peak Design SL-BK-3 Overview

  • 1Description

Carry your equipment in comfort and style with this black Slide Camera Strap from Peak Design. This strap uses strong, removable anchor connectors that attach to the eyelets of your camera or the included mounting plate, holding up to 200 lb of gear and easily supporting most DSLR and mirrorless systems. By pairing this versatile connection with a long adjustable length from 39 to 57", the Slide can be configured to work as a sling, shoulder, or neck strap.

The strap has a width of 1.8" and is made of nylon webbing that is padded internally to help ensure comfortable use. Its two sides feature different properties: one side is smooth for sliding the camera to your eye when set up as a sling, while the other has a silicone grip that prevents slipping when using it on your neck or shoulder. The four included anchor points attach and detach from the strap with a single hand, and can be left on the eyelets so you can easily switch between cameras while shooting.

  • Wearable as a sling, shoulder, or neck strap
  • Adjustable length from 39 to 57", and a width of 1.8"
  • Removable anchors used to connect to equipment, hold up to 200 lb
  • Leave anchors on your gear so you can easily attach and detach them from the strap while shooting
  • Smooth and non-slip sides that allow you to choose the amount of grip desired
  • Internally-padded webbing provides improved comfort without being bulky
  • Four anchor connectors and a tripod plate are included with the product

    Peak Design SL-BK-3 Reviews

    SL-BK-3 Slide Camera Strap (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 87.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too bulky, leaves black gunk on my shirt I've had this strap for a year now and I need to replace it, particularly because of bad #1 below. The good: 1. Strap is comfortable. 2. Quick adjusting slide is very handy, although it doesn't adjust as smoothly as advertised. The bad: 1. Strap has black rubbery goo to prevent slipping, but the rubber is deteriorating and staining my shirts black. Yecch. 2. Strap is bulkier than most, so I have more trouble putting camera quickly into camera bag. 3. Metal slides on strap don't seem like good companions for camera's rear LCD, so I find myself packing strap carefully.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just works I love how this strap keeps the camera close to my body with the lens pointed down. A different strap Ive owned, that mounted similarly to this one, but with just one anchor point at the bottom, always felt like it was dangling from my body and swinging wildly. It always felt like it was going to bump into something as I moved around. Furthermore, the attachment at the bottom was quite intrusive when using the camera in portrait mode with the battery grip. With this strap, the anchor point on the bottom is flat and barely noticeable when used with the grip. My palm can rest on the grip and I hardly feel the anchor on my palm. I just love this strap!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong System, few issues Peak Design has really nailed it with their anchor link system; it is brilliant. It allows you to carry the camera in a number of ways and switch between them in seconds. The strap quality is top notch. The rubber on one side to prevent slipping works well for when you're walking around with the camera at your hip. My issues with the strap are breathability and cushioning. The cushion in this strap isn't very comfortable. And if its hot out, you may sweat under the strap. But the upsides of this strap and system outweigh those issues for me. I've not bought more anchor links and connectors to attach to different things. This strap is worth the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Strap I really like this strap. I have used the OP/Tech Pro neoprene straps forever, but wanted to try something different. This distributes the weight nicely and you have the option to wear it either as a neck or a sling strap. It comes with a sling adapter that screws into the tripod mount. I leave mine in place so I can switch back and forth. Yes it does look like a seat belt and seems to have the toughness of one, but the material definitely feels softer so it isnt uncomfortable at all around your neck or shoulder. The slides make the length super easy to adjust and it stays firmly in place once set. All around a very good, practical piece of equipment for your camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility and safety This strap complements my Black Rapids strap for daily use. It has the advantage of quick release, for cases when I dont want a strap getting in the way, and quick attachment when I need to carry a camera for instant access. I dont like around-the-neck straps, preferring a sling-across-the-chest position. The Peak Design strap allows either with just a quick, secure adjustment of the sliders. Use it with the sticky part behind your neck or on your shoulder for non-sling positions. Use it with the sticky part out when you want to sling the camera across your chest and have the camera ready for a quick draw. Versatile.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Newest Version Shipping With Old Anchors These are great camera straps, comfortable, well designed, adjustable to fit any camera and body style. However, retailers should be upfront with the customer when making a purchase. The manufacturer has redesigned the thin anchor cords that attach to the camera. Seven failures in eleven million straps. Low odds that the one you get might fail. I wrote to Peak Design, they said this is the newest version, V3. The only one they sell themselves. Normally it is safe to assume the the newest version is the improved version. Cannot think of another instance where the second model (V2) has an upgrade that was left off of V3. Was unhappy to hear that this V3 strap is shipping with cords that could fail and drop very expensive gear to the ground. Worse, they are out of stock on the new thicker anchors so I won't be getting mine for a few weeks. New camera, new lens, new strap. Have to fill out another survey form for Peak Design and wait. Will put the Crumpler strap back on until they arrive. Oh, but if I had ordered direct from P.D., they would have shipped it with the new anchors. Important information that they should share with their retailers, but I imagine that would prevent sales and hurt the bottom line. Might just send it back. Not happy is an understatement. BH sells the new anchors, but in my opinion, customers should not have to pay to replace defective parts on brand new equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great strap Very happy with the strap so far. Bringing to NYC next week to give it the real test.  But, so far, it is very comfortable as a crossbody strap.  I use with my d750 and 24-70 lens.  The set feels much lighter than when wearing with the factory neck strap that comes with the camera.  Attachments seem secure. They click to let you know they are in the right position.  Some have complained about the metal hitting on their camera in the bag, but I have found that with just a little thought into the placement of the strap, its not an issue at all.  I think I will be able to easily wear this all day walking around when I travel and look forward to putting it to the test next week!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked the previous generation, love the new design I've been using the older -2 model for several years, and initially purchased this new model strap for use when carrying two cameras.? The new strap is my favorite, better than any other strap I've ever used. I was happy with the old design (4 stars), but this new design has three significant improvements: 1) Beveled shape of new anchors, makes them easier to latch and unlatch one-handed. 2) Thinner cord on new anchors, allows me to thread them directly through the lugs on Sony camera bodies - eliminates the? need for extra rings that came with the cameras (eliminates source of rattling noise which ruined some video recordings). 3) The new strap does not bunch up on my shoulder the way the old one sometimes does (improved rubber grip pattern). One note: I appreciated the Arca type camera mount which came with the older strap.? The new strap comes instead with a small anchor for the bottom of camera (not compatible with any monopod or tripod head).? The new anchor is more compact, but not useful when I am carrying a monopod and switching between hand held and? monopod.? I wish they included both mounts for the bottom of the camera.

    I have a Contax T2, Would this fit it?

    I have a Contax T2, Would this fit it?
    Asked by: Esmeralda
    The Contax T2 35mm Film Camera only has one strap connector, as it is a small point-and-shoot camera. It was not designed for use with neck straps. A better solution for your usage needs would be to purchase either the Peak Design Cuff Camera Wrist Strap (Black), B&H # PECFBL3, or the OP/TECH USA Cam Strap-QD (Black), B&H # OPSCQDB, for your usage needs. If you do wish to use the Peak Design SL-BK-3 Slide Camera Strap (Black), B&H # PESLBK3, you would have to connect the anchor connector for both strap ends onto the same strap connector on the camera. As I do not know if there is enough room on the strap connector for two anchor connectors, and as the camera has been discontinued and is no longer avaialble, you would just have to try it to see if it works; we have no way of testing this without the camera. If it does not work, we do have a 30-Day Return Policy so you may return the strap for an exchange or a refund.

    Can this strap be used to carry a large lens like a Canon 500mm or 600mm?
    Asked by: DAREN
    Sure can! Each Anchor which is the attachment point for our straps is designed to hold up to 200lbs. of force.

    Will this strap fit a Canon SX70 HS?

    Will this strap fit a Canon SX70 HS?
    Asked by: Michael
    Yes, the Peak Design SLL-BK-3 SlideLITE Camera Strap (Black), B&H # PESLLBK3, may be used with the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS Digital Camera. You would simply connect two (2) of the Peak Design Anchor Connectors for Peak Design Straps (4-Pack) that are included with the strap to the strap lugs built into the Canon PowerShot SX70 HS Digital Camera, to which you may then connect the Peak Design SLL-BK-3 SlideLITE Camera Strap.

    Is this the updated, Dec. 2017 version of the Slide strap?
    Asked by: Kathryn F.
    That would be correct!
    Answered by: Peak D. Peak Design Expert
    Date published: 2018-08-27


    This strap has smooth and non-slip sides. So it is reversible and you can choose which one you want. But if you choose non-slip, those two quick-adjusters will be on the body side. These adjusters will hurt and wont adjust. Is this correct or I am missing something?
    Asked by: Stanislav Z.
    I use this strap with a Nikon D7200 mostly for fire scene photography, and have had no problems with flipping the strap and being bothered by the adjusters! It is very fast paced photography, which means I am constantly moving. I mostly wear it as a cross over strap fully extended and love how quickly I can move it around. It's strong, durable, and yes comfortable for the wear of long periods. Hope this helps.

    I have Version 2 of this strap, and found that the material used to construct the slip-resist side melts and loosens in hot weather, staining the shoulders of my t-shirts. It is impossible to remove the stain. It looks like the design has changed; has the material used to construct it also changed? And HOW do I remove the stain?!

    This has happened to me as well - not only with the Slide strap, but ALSO the P.D. Everyday Messenger bag strap.

    Does this snap to the camera connectors or do you have fundble snap?
    Asked by: Evan H.
    It's an easy cord loop through your camera's strap hardware which then snaps into the strap itself. Eazy Peazy. Secure and easy to remove if desired.

    What is redesigned in this new version besides the non-slip material?
    Asked by: George Wm D.
    Having the two quick adjuster face the body side does NOT interfere with their operation.
