Once attached and adjusted correctly, it works flawlessly as advertised. I would have given it a 5 star rating, but I found it cumbersome to attach the Brad onto the Black Rapid strap initially. If you watch the vid, you'll notice the convenient absence of that part of the setup. Watch the video and get it right the first time so you don't have to dismantle the thing and do it right the second time.
All in all, it's a very worthwhile - and inexpensive - accessory. If you have an RS7 strap and like it; this is a must. If you are thinking of getting the main strap, get this along with it. Either way, you won't regret it.
Oh, and it does in fact work as advertised.
I use a battery grip on my camera all the time, and I have not found the strap with the Brad to interfere with using the camera either in landscape or portrait orientation. I am rather tall (6'3") and when I have the main strap adjusted to put the camera right on my hip, I can easily put it in portrait orientation without any fuss.
I did find that using the Brad seemed to make the main strap pull down off the shoulder frequently. I solved this problem by reversing the Brad so that it runs up around my neck and back to the main strap. This prevents the main strap from riding up when you put the camera in shooting position AND keeps the main strap up on the shoulder where it belongs. It may not look as good as using it under the arm, but it works better (at least for me).
Otherwise, yes it's a bit pricey but the combination makes life a lot easier and more comfortable than hanging a camera around your neck or constantly unslinging it from the shoulder to shoot.
