About BlackRapid

• The BlackRapid SPORT-CAMO Extreme Sports Strap is a limited edition product customized with high-contrast camouflage. It is designed to provide extra stability and security for particularly active shooters.

• The integrated underarm stabilizer hold the shoulder pad in position while the photographer is climbing a rock face, skiing down a glacier, or riding a mountain bike.

• This R-Strap is worn diagonally across the torso from shoulder to hip, and adjusts to fit most photographers. The length adjuster is located inconspicuously at the rear of the shoulder pad. The R-Strap system distributes weight sensibly, and contains dense foam padding for unparalleled comfort.

• The included stainless steel FastenR fastens to the standard 3/4"-20 tripod socket on the camera body or lens. Once fastened the camera hangs upside down, resting securely at the photographer's hip, stomach, or at the small of the back.

Comfort and Security

I have only had my BlackRapid for a short time. First thing I did was to mount my camera and my heaviest lens and went for a short hike in the hills around my house. The strap was very comfortable, i did not get the 'Strap Ache' on my neck or shoulder, the camera stayed at my side and did not bounce around. Climbing up a grade the camera again stayed put, it did not swing out in front of me. I took trail photos just to see how well I could bring my camera up to eye level and get the shout, it...

I have only had my BlackRapid for a short time. First thing I did was to mount my camera and my heaviest lens and went for a short hike in the hills around my house. The strap was very comfortable, i did not get the 'Strap Ache' on my neck or shoulder, the camera stayed at my side and did not bounce around. Climbing up a grade the camera again stayed put, it did not swing out in front of me. I took trail photos just to see how well I could bring my camera up to eye level and get the shout, it worked smooth and fast. I like to take airshow photos and am looking forward to the next show. If you are going to do some sport or active photography then get the underarm strap. I also invested in the pouch to store extra batteries and SD cards. I recommend the BlackRapid, my neck and shoulder thank me.

Comfortable Alternative to a neck strap

By

from Jacksonville, FL  -  Semi-Professional

Eliminates the weight around your neck, comfortable and is something you can use all day, especially vacationing. The strap is well constructed and easily adjusts to your liking. I don't know why I did not purchase one of these handy items years ago.

Easy and stable

By

from All the pretty girls are from Iowa  -  Photo Enthusiast

I take pics at my kids spotlrting events as well as my own bike events. So having the ability to walk around comfortably and be social while also having the camera close and ready is what I was looking for. I have used the BlackRapid strap 3 time so far and it fits the bill. Easy to set up and easy to use. It provides a stable way to carry my camera with a large tele lens on it with out having to constantly push it up on my shoulder. Plus it's real easy to take off when I don't need that kind of strap.

very comfortable strap

This is a very comfortable and secure strap. It could be better if they attached the D ring to a tripod plate

I wouldn't use any other

It is a bit expensive, but I wouldn't hang $1500+ of equipment from the cheap version.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I was told Black Rapid straps have a small steel cable that runs through the center of the strap. I will be traveling in areas where thieves cut straps on the run. Is this the strap that has that feature or is it another?
MATTHEW C  This item is the Black Rapid Sport Camo strap, and does not include any steel cables built-in. The item you are looking for is the Black Rapid Protectr strap accessory in regular or long which clips to and covers your Black Rapid strap with a 1.5" thick steel cable for security.
