I would say "it's not the revolutionary design it's made out to be" but since Black Rapid is the first (only?) company with this design, I have to give them a lot of credit.What attracted me to this strap was the short length of neck straps, and how irritating it is to switch position from around the neck to around the neck and shoulder with regular straps. I have a feeling this is why most people look into Black Rapid straps.The thing that might prevent somebody from ordering Black Rapid accessories is the price. For the record- YES- Black Rapid straps are very overpriced for what they do. But nobody seems to be doing it for cheaper, and Black Rapid is taking advantage of that (which is smart).I have a very cheap neck strap I got because it had more padding than the kit strap that comes with DSLRS. That very cheap strap had neoprene on the side that touches your neck which kept it nice and grippy for when you're out and about taking photos. For the price, I figured the Black Rapid would have this, but it doesn't; it just has not-grippy nylon on both sides. So bending over to get something out of your backpack, etc: be ready for the entire strap to slide and your camera to swing forward, regardless of whether or not it's locked in via the two plastic clamps on the strap.As for the carabiner that attaches the strap to the connector (I don't know which one is the Connect-R and which one is the Fasten-R). I thought it was just a standard carabiner, like the kind I put my keys on. But this carabiner has a little thing that screws up and down so you can open and close it, which I was pleasantly surprised by since it's even more protection against the camera coming unattached. That said, taking the camera on/off every day is a little bit of a pain. The latch on the carabiner is pretty small, so you have to dig in there with the very tip of your thumb to open it, and then finesse it to the right angle to slide off the connector, and that's probably my biggest peeve about the strap system so far.Overall, I feel this is a cool strap, just not the best value, obviously.[...]

So much better than a neck strap...is much less tiring to use on vacation.
Much better, easier on the neck and shoulder than the classic neck strap. I've bought one for each camera I own.
Ordered this and several other straps before a 3 week visit to Europe. Walked at least four miles each day, and hardly felt this strap for the 21 days. I tested the others before leaving, but this is by far the most comfortable. Very solid construction. Attaches easily to the D-ring that is on most tripod quick release plates.
The strap is well made and it is comfortable to use. The strap works as intended while I am hiking with my camera + 400mm lens by my side. However, it slides off my shoulder when I need to use the camera. I now need to buy a chest strap to keep the shoulder strap in place.
Good camera strap, comfortable and adjusts easily
Black Rapid is as good as it gets for camera straps. But get the under-the-arm version or order the accessory for this one. Not so good without it.
Couple this with a Custom SLR M plate and you can have both a fantastic strap and a Arca Swiss Tripod plate ready to go (one screw to remove - pretty quick... PS Great,Great Service at Adorama- These folks have solutions not just products! Thanks Eli and Ben!
Purchased the RS-7 after much on line research. Have found it to be very useful and practical. Gives a great new feel to using the camera when on this strap.
Having your camera at your side when walking around the city or in the field is a lot more comfortable than having the camera bouncing on your chest. The strap allows the camera to be brought up to the eye in an easy sliding motion. The design is more ergonomic than the traditional strap. I am definitely pleased with this purchase.
Made of good quality strong long lasting fabric. I like the clips for use as stops to force the sling back into place when done using camera
