From the Manufacturer

The BlackRapid Curve (RS-7) Camera Strap is a lightweight strap and is the simplest and most versatile of the BlackRapid straps.

It features attachment points so you can customize your strap with your choice of storage and other features.

It's constructed of ballistic nylon for extreme durability.

With the Curve, ergonomics are key. It's designed and shaped to fit perfectly around your shoulder.

The weight of your camera is evenly distributed for the ultimate in comfort. It's built for speed, for when timing is everything.

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.

Included is a stainless steel FastenR which fastens to the standard 1/4"-20 tripod socket on the camera body or lens.

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.

I was an infantryman in the Marine Corps for 8 years and as such I am used to walking around all day with all kinds of things attached to, and hanging from, my body. So it was a big surprise to me when I got into photography how incredibly awkward and uncomfortable it is to walk around with a camera! I have a D300s which usually has a 16-85 or 70-300 attached, and compared to a flak jacket, ammo pouches, canteens, a rifle, and a host of other worthless stuff should be a piece of cake to carry around. Unfortunately it's always digging into my ribs, bouncing all over the place, swinging wildly if I bend or lean over - I mean it really takes the fun out of my hobby.

The Rapid Strap is based on the one-point, assault rifle slings that I am so used to and does a pretty good job of keeping my camera out of the way until needed. The problem that I have with it is two-fold: Firstly, it's way overpriced. There really isn't much to this thing and in my opinion it shouldn't be more than 40 bucks. My next problem is that it's actually too complex. When I first started seeing one-point rifle slings about 6 or 7 years ago they looked a lot like the rapid strap, with a bunch of buckles and fasteners and different straps. As time went on though, the designs became more and more simple until finally we were left with nothing but a nylon encased loop of bungy cord that clipped to the back of the rifle. This has become the standard sling for people who know what they're doing in the military, and it would make carrying a camera even easier. I hope somebody makes it soon.

BlackRapid is one of the 2 leading "Sling Strap" makers (the other being Luma Loop) and is usually attributed with more sales. After debating for months if I really needed to upgrade my strap (from the standard Canon black and red) I finally decided to take the plunge. Doing so made me realize how important of a decision it was!

To start, my main camera body is a Canon 7D without grip. I don't have a real use for a grip since most of the things I shoot are either sports (where I have fine battery life to shoot 1200-1500 shots easily on 1 charge) or events (where I have plenty of time to change to an extra battery). My main lenses are a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS. Occasionally (depending on the event) I also have a Canon 430EX II flash hooked up. Before I get on with the rest of the review let me just say that this strap had *NO* trouble holding any and all of that, but more importantly...in place.

Alright if you want to see how this thing works, I'd recommend youtube. A strap such as this one kind of needs to be seen or felt to understood completely. Basically, it's similar to a sling strap for an assault rifle or carbine. Being ex-USAF I immediately saw the usefulness in such a design: ease and speed of access. In the military, a sling is usually used to hold your weapon because it lets you bring the weapon up to operating stance in less than a second even when you least expect it. The other useful reason for such a design is that it keeps the weapon in place even when moving quickly or in different directions. This is just as important because it makes sure the weapon isn't in the way but also because it keeps the weapon safe.

In Photography, all of those things apply.

I got my Black Rapid RS-7 today and I absolutely love it!! It's definitely a world of difference from the OEM Canon strap. I have to admit that it is a little daunting to have several thousand dollars worth of equipment just dangling from your side, but a little vigilance with insuring that the strap is screwed on tight and I think that those worries are alleviated. I think as always I will just have to keep my hand on the hand strap that I have attached to my 5DMK2 and I'll be OK. Great strap though and will buy another one for my back up soon.

UPDATE 6-9-2013: So I've had the Black Rapid RS-7 now for about a month. Yesterday, while I was taking a break from shooting a wedding, one of the videographers approached me about the Black Rapid strap. He told me that he had the same exact setup and proceeded to show me his RS-7. He advised that there have been complaints regarding the carabiner falling off the oval metal ring that houses it and showed me how he modified his in order to prevent a catastrophic drop with his equipment. Basically what he did was take two 4 in cable ties and secured the carabiner on each side. Then he took an 8 inch cable tie and created a loop in the oval ring, from there he attached an S clip from the cable tie to the Black Rapid carabiner. He also attached to 8 inch cable ties to the clip lock that holds the Black Rapid Strap together preventing that from accidentally unhinging. Like myself, he also had several thousand dollars worth of gear normally hanging from the Black Rapid so he wanted the added security. Well as soon as I got home last night, I pretty much mimicked his setup. Took cable ties and secured the plastic clip that closes and opens the RS-7, then took two cable ties and secured the carabiner to the oval ring.
