Overall I found it much less useful than my tripod bag.
= The carrying strap was too short to be looped over my head to allow the tripod to lie on one side of my body and the strap to go across my chest and over the opposite shoulder. This is the only secure way to carry a tripod. But because the strap is too short, it only went over the shoulder on the same side as the tripod, and kept slipping off my shoulder so I had to keep pulling it back up. Not satisfactory.
= The bag does a better job protecting the camera from the tripod head than the strap. A full size tripod is a large hard unwieldy object at least two feet long and when worn on your body its movements are not always predictable. Using these straps the tripod head collided with my Nikon and broke the UV filter (that fortunately protected the lens).
= The bag also protects the tripod in my car trunk, as well as the items surrounding the tripod: a loose uncovered tripod can do a good bit of damage.
= If you are using these straps, you are forced to carry the tripod with the head upwards and the legs downward. This means that each time you use the tripod, you have to unlock the legs twice (once before extending, and once to allow collapsing). And then you have to lock the legs twice, once after you extend the legs, and once after you collapse them. This is quite time consuming if you have three locks on each leg, meaning 36 lock/unlock operations each time you use your tripod.
If on the other hand you carry your tripod in a bag, you don't need to lock the legs after you retract them. Instead you pack the tripod into the bag with head downwards and legs upwards, then zip the bag, then carry it any which way after the bag is zipped. Which means you can leave the legs unlocked except when the tripod is erected. Which means that each time you use the tripod, you need to lock it just once, and unlock it just once, saving quite a bit of time, by having 18 lock and unlock operations rather than 36.
= My tripod bag has a handy pocket for keeping the quick release plate and other paraphernalia such as an electronic shutter release.
The straps really did not cinch tightly enough that I always felt comfortable with the setup. I did carry it on a bouncy hike and the straps some times held and other times the strap holding on to the legs would slide. It was hard to tighten to a point where I was confident it would stay.
Maybe for a larger tripod with a larger diameter feet (and ball head area) this would work better, but for a more compact tripod, I'm going to look for another product.
Clips at either end make a quick connect, disconnect. I leave the wrap at the top of the tripod connected and disconnect the wrap which holds the three legs together when I set up. There was plenty of strap so I could set the shoulder-comfort pad at the right place relative to the balance of the tripod. (Straps each side of the shoulder pad are easily adjustable.) I quickly discovered I wanted to leave a large enough loop that it fits over my head so I carry the tripod on my back.
Construction quality looks good and I expect to have long service with proper care.
There are a couple of ways to fasten it to the tripod so experimenting is always a way to go. My personal choice is fastening both straps around the neck of the tripod. I leave the camera fastened to the tripod and sling the strap over my shoulder with the camera forward.
If you're bringing a tripod with you, this strap is one way to go.
