Perfect strap for heavy camera.

I have a Canon 6D with the battery grip and a 24-105 lens and this strap is perfect for this setup. The shoulder strap is very comfortable. Great product.

Product Needs Updating

Returned Product If looking to buy this product for some of the additional pockets this product is out dated. If have an IPhone and in any type of case it will not fit in the pocket. So the larger phones then the IPhone will not fit and niether will the IPhone 5. Very difficult to get CF cards in some of the slots while wearing the strap. The adjuster needs some work also as it bunched up inside the strap and created a lump inside. Overall a good idea but needs some major updating to fit some...

Game changer for me

By

from Spartanburg, SC  -  Photo Enthusiast

So far this strap has made the biggest differance in my recent photography activity. I've always hated the factory strap, could not stand the feel of it on my neck, and hanging there, the camara was in the way. Now it hangs back out of the way, but when I need it, just grab it and shoot. It slides up easily on the strap, then goes back to hanging.

Bad Fit for modern phones, magnet weak

By

from Pittsburgh, PA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Had there been a review on the site PRIOR to making the purchase, I would have balked. It's ergonomically incorrect; the pocket flap doesn't stay down with the magnet, and none of the pockets are large enough to carry the single item I purchased this to accommodate -my iphone 4s. It's going back to Adorama and I'm going with the RS7.
