The Op/Tech Double Sling offers another alternative to the ever-popular Dual Harness for those photographers wanting the feel and the fast action of the Utility Strap - Sling for carrying two cameras, the Double Sling is the answer. Its U-shaped neoprene pad effectively distributes and balances the weight of two cameras while absorbing the shock of the photographer's movements. It offers the popular Uni-Loop Connectors to attach to the cameras.
The strap also has added flexibility in that it can be adjusted to carry only one camera if desired. When carrying two cameras, the camera that is attached to the left side of the Double Sling will only use one Uni-Loop Connector mounted to the left side connection area of the camera. The camera mounted to the right side of the Double Sling can either use one or two connection areas on the right side of the camera depending on the type of camera.
The Sling Adapter System used on the Double Sling can be removed from the U-shaped pad and added to any other Op/Tech standard strap pad to create an over-the-shoulder sling strap. This interchangeable design gives the photographer flexibility to customize their gear to fit their ever-changing needs. Comfort, security and flexibility sum up the features of the Double Sling.

I usually only carry one camera at a time. When I do I just hook each side of the camera to opposing sides of the harness. Then the camera sits snugly next to my body, then I just snap one side off when I want to shoot. Having the harness has made my photography much more enjoyable because I don't get the strain of carrying the camera all the time or the pull on the neck. I have a Canon 5DIII with a battery pack and when I have the 100-400L lens on it, it can be quite heavy. I am a 5'3" female in my early 60's so now I can go all day without strain.
I ended up returning this product because it didn't fit me. It's a "One Size Fits All" - which never works for us smaller people, i.e., women. The concept is great and it's affordable. Construction seems OK, not great.
I use this to carry two Pentax K-20s and most of the time don't even realize they are hanging off my shoulders. It is extremely comfortable and the cameras don't slip and slide off your shoulder or hang on your neck.
