Cons: after long wear for a wedding, it irritates skin around armpits, but this goes away with repeated wear. The slide motion will snag on your shirt and occasionally pinch skin. Forget lying on the floor to take a shot, it can be done but takes some planning, squatting however, works just fine. Hinges make a squeaking sound.
The cons sound daunting, however the pros outweigh the cons in the field. The swagger of the strap is a HUGE pro. People will just walk up to you and start talking about your set-up which leads to eventual talk about your services. In addition, it makes you look like James Bond as opposed to Batman with other straps with the same functionality.
Keep your old straps. They'll come in handy when 1 camera is needed. This strap should only be used for dual cameras. It's very unbalanced with one camera. Despite the vanity of this strap, it does have a lot of functionality.
#1 its very noisy, as you walk around church specially the metal makes screeching noises. Or noise that you would hear from an old hinge. There's no way to "oil" this.
#2 There's barely enough "length" to be able to hold the camera near your face. Its tight.
#3 As its getting older the leather that is in contact with your clothing started to shed. So my black shirts will have bits of tan leather making you look less that neat.
Thank you I hope this helps people decide.
And for those of you wondering if this came with the additional catch straps...yes!
Update 5/4/15: I've had 3 shoots with this since I purchased it. The first use was a little frustrating as the leather, being new and all, was rubbing off on my black shirt leaving fragments of leather all over my shirt. Sure, it was the natural leather doing what it does. Does that change my mind about it, no! But let that be a warning to you for the first time of using it. Also, be mindful of the possibility of the slide catching your shirt. Again, not a big deal! Still love it. I get a lot of compliments too!

I deducted 1 star for two reasons: The metal pieces are squeaky and can be a distraction at quiet events.Read more
