Product Description

Size Name: 1 Count

The BlackRapid RS-Sport Extreme Sport Strap is designed to hold and keep an SLR camera and lens steady in strenuous shooting situations. Slide the camera up the strap to grab that perfect shot. The strap has an under arm safety tether that keeps the camera secure. It includes a Cr-2 connector-2, FR-3 fastener-3 and a BRAD MOD that secures the camera to the strap.

Customer Reviews

The RS-Sport works best for me: Canon 7D with a midweight lens (e.g. 70-200 f/2.8L II IS).

I have used the RRS-1BB now a few times on my current trip and I think it is one of the best investments I ever made.
Alan Ottley
Very comfortable strap, displaces the weight of your camera across your shoulder very well and off your neck.

I was looking for a different neck strap and stumbled upon the Black Rapid RS-Sport strap. Did my research on some photography forums and the Black Rapid Website and then bought the RS-Sport; OMG! it's the most awesome camera gear addition I've made to my kit. This well designed and well built strap is a leap forward in camera gear for all who are annoyed by the traditional camera strap. I have neck issues and getting the weight of my Nikon DSLR off my neck was a must for my health and well being to enjoy a day of shooting pictures without soreness or a hot sweaty neck. At the same time having the camera safe at my side while still instantly ready to shoot is a dream comes true. It's super comfortable and I can wear it for hours. The bigger the lens the better it hangs at your side, my little 35mm f1.8 prime on the camera feels weightless when I wear the strap. Put on the 70-300mm and you'll know it's there but still very comfortable and the lens hangs down and lens and camera stay safe and tight on my hip.

Be informed and know your needs: Many say that they don't use the Brad strap with their Black Rapid straps, the Sport includes the strap at no additional cost (It's currently the only accessory the Sport strap supports, no Joey packs) I use it all the time, using it really locks the gear in place locking the gear via the strap to your shoulder to keep it from swinging forward when you lean forward. If you don't want to wear it, it does come off so you can use it with or without depending on your activity.

I suggest checking out all of the Black Rapid straps at their web site to determine which strap is the best for your style of activity. I've recommended to friends and family and would buy this exact strap again without hesitation.

I saw this at a photography expo and ordered one after trying it on. I will admit that it takes the weight of the camera off you so it's hardly noticeable. Fantastic fit, didn't slide. Make sure you've adjusted the length so your palm is right where you hold the body when shooting so you just reach down, pick up, and shoot.

A few things I didn't like about it. the strap was a little short, i'm a medium sized guy 5'9", 210 lbs, so it may be too short for even beefier and taller guys. When you're doing shots near the ground, you have to be careful so it doesn't drag. For artistic angled shots away from my body, I don't like having to remove the camera.
And the last thing is that once i've adjusted the strap length, I wish it would stay that way even when I take off the harness, but I find myself having to adjust the length each time.

If you can live with the things I mentioned above, it is a remarkable strap and tons of improvement over the manufacturer's strap that comes with the camera.

I have had Black Rapid straps for a couple of years.... I love them. I have two RS-4's. But there is one thing that I do not like and that is when you lean over, for instance to look in the trunk of your car, the camera will swing from your side and hit the car. It also makes it difficult to hike if you are going to have to lean over anything.

I though that the stabilizing strap of the sport strap would hold the camera in place.

It does hold it to some extent. But it still swings foward and end up about 6-12 inches below you belly (if leaning over at 90degrees).

Other than that it is very stable. But I don't want it to move much at all. I found a little trick where I can attach a carabiner to my belt and then snap the strap into the carabiner. It holds it great until I need to shoot and then I pop it out. But the RS-4 does this just as well....so I am returning the sport.

I have tried several straps recently: the OEM canon strap, California Sun Sniper One, Crumpler The Industry Disgrace, Black Rapid RS4, and the Black Rapid RS-Sport. The RS-Sport works best for me: Canon 7D with a midweight lens (e.g. 70-200 f/2.8L II IS). I can carry this rig comfortably for many hours hiking, with the camera always ready for quick use. What I like about the RS-Sport is the strap that goes under the left arm, preventing the strap from rotating around my body. This is helpful both when shooting and when locking the camera in place while hiking/climbing.

This is a pretty solid sling-style strap. It will only go over your left shoulder, with the camera hanging at your hip on the right side.

A threaded lug is screwed into the camera's tripod socket, and it clips to a locking carabiner on the strap. You can then just let your camera drop (gently of course) and it will hang backwards at your side. When you need to grab it, reach down and pull it up. It's quick and easy. I have carried some large camera gear (almost 8+ pounds) with this strap and it feels very solid.

Note that there is no storage (pockets or zippers or anything) on the strap like some of the other BlackRapid models. For me, that's OK. A note on comfort, the under-arm strap can sometimes be a bit uncomfortable if you're wearing a loose/baggy shirt, as it can sit in an awkward position.

Overall it's more comfortable than using my neck strap but don't expect too much...eventually I do feel the weight of my 5DM3 +24-70 2.8L2 .. However there is shoulder no ache at the end of 5-6 hours..
Some cons which I noticed after carrying this for few days
- Doesnt really go well with my shoulder camera bag like my Think Tank Retrospective. They both obstruct each other making you quite uncomfortable. If you are only carrying your camera or backpack then it's ok.
- The sling length adjustment really doesn't work..it keeps getting longer as there is no stopper to prevent the strap from getting longer. There are two stoppers to lock the camera in position while carrying. I had to reposition one of the stoppers to prevent the strap from getting longer. Works for now!!
- the straps gets tangled very easily.
- while bending, sitting or in crowded places you need to hold your camera so as to avoid any damage.
- the connectR which connects the strap and the fastener has a screw lock gate that needs to be screwed for safety. However with a slight twist the screw gets unlocked. this is scary considering that connectR moves within the fastener and there is a possibility of lock gate getting unscrewed through friction.
Obviously I'm paranoid now. I am now using a uniloop connector from Optech as a secondary support. My loop connects between ConnectR and the usual camera strap hook.
This gives me peace of mind at least as secondary safety.
I also purchased the cotton carrier universal adapter plate . This helps me to mount my tripod to the camera without removing the strap. I have not noticed any problem with the adapter plate. Stays tight.
