    Utility Strap-Sling (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 225.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Utility strap-sling by OP/TECH I did a lot of reading on line & talked to several people about camera straps before I decided on this strap. I also consulted B&H via their customer help. The strap is priced very fairly, well made and does the job very satisfactorily. It positions the camera at my hip (I am 6'2) & allows me to take either landscape or portrait mode pictures very quickly. It seems to do everything that the more expensive straps claim to do. I am very satisfied. My one con comment is that the shoulder portion moves a little when the camera is raised. It is not a big deal but probably the straps with a strap under the arm avoid this small problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Utility strap I really like this strap, particularly for the price. It is well made and does its job very well. I did a lot of on line research and talked to several people about straps before I decided on this one. It is very comfortable & hangs my camera at my hip (I am 6'3). It allows me to take either landscape or portrait mode pictures very quickly. I am very pleased. My one con is that when sliding the camera into place to take a picture, the shoulder part of the strap moves a little. This probably does not happen with straps that have an under the arm strap, but these cost 3-4 times as much. It is a small annoyance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfort & Inexpensive! I was looking at some of the more expensive brand straps...then came across this OpTech brand sling strap mentioned in a Disney photography forum. Considering that it had gotten great reviews on that forum and I know I'd be wearing it all day long in the parks with my camera on my side...I figured I'd purchase one. This strap replaces the original strap which came with my Canon T1i. First impressions...very comfortable on the shoulder and I feel safer knowing that this strap uses the stock camera strap's eyelits instead of the tripod screw mount as other straps use.The detachable connectors are a nice feature. It has no problem supporting the weight of my T1i with my Tamron 18-270mm attached, which is currently my biggest lens. The detachable connectors are a nice feature too. Can't beat it for less than $ !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long, adjustable, comfortable Really easy to put together and get on the camera. Detachable connectors allow you to remove it easily if you store it elsewhere in your bag or just want to remove it. Only thing I don't prefer is that the strap is a whole loop, and both connectors are on that loop so when it is connected there is a strap between the two mount points on the camera rather than the stock style where the strap is connected at two ends rather than a loop. I haven't messed with a flash yet to see if it gets in the way of the hot shoe mount but I doubt it will be any dealbreaking concern. It's comfortable, adjustable and easy to put together for a really great price among the competitors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Strap - Buy the X-Large, though I love the design - perhaps the plastic buckles could be replaced with metal, but they are very functional. One criticism I have is that there are two quick release buckles on the strap, and then another to attach to the camera. I'm probably going to tie a piece of paracord between the strap buckles - I don't see a reason to quick release the strap when I can easily throw it over my shoulder. note: I am 6'2. This strap was just a TAD bit short. I ended up adding a length of nylon to the back of the strap so that it hung a little lower. I probably should have purchased the X-Large.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea but... The plastic sliding clips keep the camera body at a funny angle if you have them both attached- picture the camera wanting to keep both strap eyelets equally distant from the sling as you move the camera from rest to your face. They also can criss-cross. If you detach one and just support the camera fron one strap then the camera can spin- you can't just reach down for the camera because you don't know how the camera is oriented. Also, there is much more friction and noise (than black rapid) when quicky moving the camera from the hanging position to the eye. The nylon weave is too coarse! If you compare this to a Blackrapid or sun sniper you will see what I mean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for the BUCK! OP/TECH puts out good quality stuff and this strap did not disappoint. The strap is similar to the Carry Speed and Black Rapid straps, except in how they attach to your camera.I choose this strap for 2 reasons. 1)Price 2)How and Where it connects to my DSLR.The OP/TECH, Carry Speed and Black Rapid all have their quick release versions of how they attach to the DSLR body. My issue was that I have a Really Right Stuff L-Bracket. The L-Bracket lets me mount my camera in landscape or portrait without having to reposition the ball head on my tripod. The L-Bracket is very light, so it stays on my camera 24/7. Both the Carry Speed and Black Rapid attach to the camera thru the tripod bracket threads on the bottom of the camera body or the extra/spare threads on the bottom of the L-Bracket. Unfortunately where their quick release attaches to the L-Bracket does not allow me to mount my camera on a tripod without first unthreading their quick release system. Both Carry Speed and Black Rapid make a tripod bracket/plate with the quick release attach point repositioned so you can use it with a tripod, but no L-Bracket for portrait mode. The OP/TECH quick release is attached to one of the 2 attach points you would attach your standard around the neck camera straps. It's a simple clean design. While most people will probably NOT have a need for an L-Bracket, I was happy to find that OP/TECH kept it simple. No reinventing the wheel here, K.I.S.S. * Plus I have a fear with the Carry Speed or Black Rapid threaded attach point working its way out and unscrewing from the body as I walk around. The thought of my DSLR and lens crashing to the concrete was another reason I went with the OP/TECH system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and value I had to buy a better strap because the one that came with my camera gave me a fright. While shooting a family reunion, it came undone and fell; miraculously my hand was in the right position to catch it. I'd looked at the sling straps before but decided against them because they attached to the tripod screw which I didn't think was secure enough, and they cost too much. But this strap is perfect. It attaches to the intended strap loop on the camera, the latches are all secure (plus I've reinforced them with the Velcro straps), the strap stays in place when I raise the camera, very plush shoulder rest, perfect for my height at 5''7 (there are extensions you can buy if you're taller), and it's a great value.
