Comments about California Sunbounce Sun Sniper Compact Strap, Black:
This holds my Nikon D80 DSLR with MB-D80 vertical/dual battery pack!
I went to one of the museums in Washington, DC over the weekend and I have to admit, this "compact strap" with "steel" embedded wire held my gear with ease! Not to mention the smooth motion when I had to grab my gear to take a picture!
This particular model comes with the "bear" bearing system which allowed my camera do a full 360 degree spin! It's not like the other model where is uses a carabiner connection. PLUS, it comes with the insurance (must register online)!
There are only two drawbacks...
One is the thickness of the wire.
It's about the thickness of a large paper clip (when straightened). I guess it's because of the width of the strap measuring only about 5/8" or 10/16" wide.
The second is the strap's fiber strands easily loosens, but can be easily removed though. (This is how mine arrived...I have to double check with Adorama.)
The bottom line...
It works (for me)!
The Pros section describing "Comfortable Strap, Compact, Durable, Good Protection, Lightweight" holds true!
The Cons I described is not SO serious!
