This R-Strap is worn diagonally across the torso from shoulder to hip, and adjusts to fit most photographers. The length adjuster is located inconspicuously at the rear of the shoulder pad.

Once fastened the camera hangs upside down, resting securely at the photographer’s hip, stomach, or at the small of the back. The R-Strap system distributes weight sensibly, and contains dense foam padding for unparalleled comfort.

Very comfortable strap.
The Page Mode
This strap is very comfortable and it is very easy to use and quick to bring the camera up to your face to snap a shot at any time.
The weight of the camera and lens is distributed evenly and the comfort of the RS4 strap is much appreciated.

A nasty fall some years ago left me in the hospital and gave me permanent difficulties carrying things around my neck. A pound is about my limit. My binoculars at 22 oz fatigue me. My DSLR weighs in at 3 pounds. Carrying it with a normal neck strap starts hurting within 20 minutes. A birder's shoulder harness helps a little but not much. Attaching a padded monopod and carrying the kit over my shoulder was my best answer before getting this strap. That's okay for hiking but awkward in any kind of crowd. With the BlackRapid strap on my camera. I can go out for half a day with just a little fatigue.

Obviously, you don't need a bad back to benefit from this strap. I'd recommend it for any heavy camera/lens combo. The wide padded strap that slings cross body does a very good job of distributing the camera's weight and keeping it inline with the body. The free swing of the camera on the connector allows it to fall - lens down - just behind my hip and out of the way. With a bit of practice it's extremely fast to get the camera up to eye level. It also offers pockets in the strap for extra memory cards, lens cloth or other small extras. Add in easy adjustment, secure, quick attachment and quality build and you've got a winner. This is a substantial and well made product.

The strap uses the camera's tripod socket to mount so you can't use quick release plates. The attachment fitting also keeps the camera from sitting flat on its bottom. So, if you're going to need a tripod camera mount, you're probably better off using a camera bag or a belt holster, which you probably already own. For a hand held shots, though, it's the best thing I've seen.

If you find your camera a bit heavy and your back aching at the end of the day, or if you just appreciate well made, designed and comfortable straps, then here's the most comfortable strap around.

I do a lot of street shooting and have grown to dislike the normal Nikon strap that comes with your camera. I saw a print ad about the Black Rapid strap and decided to try it out. Santa delivered it and I really dig this thing.
No more fumbling with the old style straps, twisting and tugging and having it swing back and forth on your hip.
With this strap my camera (Nikon D300 with a 24-70- pretty heavy combo) sits upside down on my hip or almost centered in the middle of my back. It takes the weight off your neck and sits very comfortably.
But, the true advantage is when you grab the camera with one hand, slide it up the strap, put camera to your eye and start shooting. No thinking, debating- just grab, slide and shoot.
I haven't really thought much of whether it is expensive or not, all I know is that I have finally found a great strap to take some of the awkwardness out of shooting with my camera.
Yeah it does make you wonder that with such a simple invention, why didn't I think of it, but you didn't,so get over it and enjoy your shooting experience.

I own the 5D Mark II & Battery Grip, and for the past year have only used the included strap. When I went out, I would not usually take the camera with me because it would give me neck pain and was always getting in the way. I just figured that was the price one payed to have a nice camera. After one of my friends recommended the black rapid strap I went home and immediately looked it up. I was a bit shocked by the price, and thought "Why would anyone in their right mind pay that much for a camera strap!?!" and of course did not purchase it.

About a month ago the strap that came with the camera started slipping and I realized I would have to buy a new strap. I was then faced with the decision of whether I should buy a replacement strap or fork over the extra money for a Black Rapid. Obviously I bought the Black Rapid and have never once regretted my purchase. When I first put on the strap I thought to myself "How did they make the camera weigh less?" because the camera, even when holding it by the strap in my hands, seemed to weigh less than when I was holding it by the body.

After about a week of using the strap I realized that I was taking the camera out more often, and was not annoyed by its presence at all. In fact, I have captured some shots that I am sure I would have missed if I had not purchased the strap, simply because I would have left the camera at home. I have also had no back or neck problems since, even when carrying the camera around all day.

I'm a professional photographer specializing in youth athletics and often carry two, and sometimes three different cameras during a game for hours at a time. Typical camera straps (around the back of the neck) can "scissor" with one another, and the added weight of heavy zoom lenses puts undue pressure on the back and neck.
The "RStrap" is a lifesaver! It hangs across the shoulder with a padded cushion and the camera slides down to an inverted hanging position at my hip until I need it. Even with a heavy 400mm lens the Black Rapid keeps the weight off of my neck and greatly reduces neck fatigue (and anyone who's carried a heavy lens with an ordinary camera strap will attest to THAT wear and tear!)
Initially I was hesitant to purchase this product because I couldn't justify spending over [...] on a mere strap, but after having used this product for dozens of sporting events from baseball to rugby I heartily endorse the RStrap to anyone out there who might be thinking of making the same purchase.
THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT I'VE ADDED TO MY PHOTOGRAPHY ARSENAL, BAR NONE! You won't regret it, I promise. Order one, attach it to your camera and let the weight hang effortlessly off of your shoulder instead of pulling down on the back of your neck. You'll see instantly why this should have been part of your equipment years ago!
Can't say enough about this product. It's easy to adjust the length of the strap so that your camera stays out of harm's way when you kneel to shoot with a second camera, and allows you to put a hand on two different cameras for that split second choice between cameras as the action unfolds.
If you hike or work with heavy equipment I highly recommend the Black Rapid RS4! You won't be disappointed!
