Of course this comes in handy for official photo shoots, but I'm very excited use it for fun outings now, too! I've got 3 little kids, and I often don't take my "big camera" with me because I joke that it's like a fourth kid. With this strap, taking my camera is so much more fun and less stressful.

This strap is really comfortable, and I love that it locks in place behind my back so I can bend down and use both hands (ie. pick up my 2-year-old). I considered this one and the Black Rapid strap, but I liked the strap-locking feature of the Joby. It works perfectly. I don't always lock it, and it stays pretty well. However when I do lock it in place, it's easy enough to quickly unlock it with one hand, slide it up, and take a picture.

I love that the strap isn't too bulky with too much padding, so it fits easily in my bag. Some reviews I read said they would like more padding, but I actually like the lack of it. Plus, the material gives slightly and molds fine to my shoulder. Highly recommended!

As a lady photographer, the idea for the curve on the chest line is great.  But the execution is poor.  I work with a Nikon D-810.  My heaviest lens is a 24-70.  I have also hiked with this strap.   It peels apart at the outer seams on the strap which seems to be sealed rather than stitched.  JOBY has another one marketed to men as a professional strap.  I purchased that one and it is made far more secure with good stitching and a metal safety ring....and the straight strap is adjustable and fits across my chest comfortably.  If you are a professional lady photographer with a heavy DSLR/lens,  do not buy this one.  I wouldn't even use it for a point and shoot.  Two thumbs down.

Not Too Sure About This

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

I'm not sure about this. It should not have been but seemed complicated fitting this strap - not sure I ever did do the proper adjustments. Anyway it doesn't seem any better than a regular poly strap.

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

Thanks for the product, great service and reliable company, only I was little bit confused when I received my Slingshot Edge Bag. I thought the Sling Strap for women will be in the box and actually the Sling Strap came a few hours later with a different delivery driver. Otherwise everything went smoothly and they updated me continuously about my package. I will recommend to everyone to use this company because they safe and reliable. I will use their service again. Thanks B&H for my items.

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

Not sure why it took me so long to buy this! I have not worn a traditional neck strap in the traditional way for years. Can't stand the tourist look of a camera hanging around my neck! So I was wrapping the strap around my hand, which worked, but meant my right had was never free. This cross body strap is the answer! Camera hangs at your side and at the ready, but both hands are free as needed. No matter the size of the lens on the camer, it hangs down and out of the way instead of sticking straight out in front. For the kind of photography I do, often out in the swamps and woods where I need hands free to negotiate rough terrain, it is perfect. Efficient, comfortable design.

It's easy to use, easy to adjust, and fits a woman's body. It would be nice if the should part was a little more padded.

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

This strap is a perfect fit for my smaller body frame. The comfort of the crossbody sling as opposed to the bulk of the camera at my chest is superb - I find the camera much more comfortable at my side and more protected. The sling straps and locks are easily adjustable and user friendly and I am able to bring the camera to my eyes quickly and smoothly.

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

I tend to wear my camera cross-body anyway, so this is a great option.  It's easy to use and I love how I can quickly adjust the length.  I wasn't convinced that it wouldn't eventually work its way out of the tripod socket, so I also purchased the tether for added security (which was not very expensive)

Great for Hiking

By Edie the old lady hiker

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

UltraFit Sling Strap for Women was very easy to use. I am 5'4" 130 lbs and this strap was comfortable across my shoulder. I wear a backpack with hydration pack while hiking in Grand Teton NP. My camera of choice is a Nikon 3200 dslr with a Tamron 18-270 lense, this was much more comfortable on long hikes than when I just used a neck strap. It was easy to unscrew strap to add the plate for my tripod. I would definitely recommend this product.

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

Cross strap helps me enjoy carrying around my camera. After using the original camera straps on a trip to NY, I was determined to find something better. While it was a little scary to think camera would dangle upside down, I sure do see benefit of it. Camera is very accessible when want yet out of the way. I did have to pull up little to avoid camera from swinging at hips but much easier than on neck.

Learning Curve

By Linda

from Mechanicsburg, PA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

I've always used a padded neck-strap worn across my body, as you wear this, and it works pretty well. The advantage to this strap is that it's fairly easy to shorten it up and keep the camera close to your body. On the down side, when using it for my Canon PowerShot SX60, you cannot open the battery/memory card door unless you unscrew the strap. I also share the concern of others regarding the security of a screw-in connection. Still deciding whether to keep or not.

      This sling strap has changed my life as far as having the ability to carry a large camera and telephoto lens all day on a recent trip to Europe. It was comfortable and distributed the weight easily. the ability to grab my camera and take a shot made it effortless. I can't recommend this enough!!

      Comments about Joby UltraFit Sling Strap For Women (Charcoal):

      A little difficult to figure out how to set it up, but once I figured it out, it was great, I take my 2 dogs to the beach early in the morning and let them run and never took my camera because it was always in way when I was tossing the ball for them or just getting their leashes on and if. With this is==I can take care of them and still have the camera out of the way but ready when I want it.
