I purchased this camera strap for for my Nikon D700, for everyday use, I am an event photographer and my cameras follow me on my hikes. I needed something durable, functional and secure. This strap has satisfied all of my requirements.

It is well constructed with heavy stitching on the doubled nylon straps and strong metal fasteners (clips and 'D' rings, so far it has not shown any wear from lugging my heavy camera. I often use it with my NG Medium Explorer Backpack, as the clips secure to the 'D' rings and take the load off of the neck and distribute it through the shoulder straps. In a pinch the clips can be removed from the neck strap and be used as a makeshift wrist strap (although not reccomended for a weak heart and uninsured camera.)

The neckstrap has three rows of rubber stitching and has yet to slip off of my shoulder while on the job or trail. The swivels on the ends of the clips are a nice feature, which keeps the strap from becoming twisted while walking or drawing the camera for a shot. I use the two pockets for holding my extra media cards, they are a perfect fit for SD cards in a case but are a bit tight for my CF cards (but not unuseable.)

The only criticisms that I have for this product are that I would have liked to see snaps instead of Velcro for the media card pockets (personal preference,) and I would like to see other colors offered. While I prefer earth-tones such as the Khaki, it doesn't go well with a suit.

Fairly well made in, of all places, China. Has two "pouches". These are little more than mini billboards for the National Geographic logos. You might get a SDHC card in there. You might have trouble getting it out. One of the pouches is packed with a country of origin tag we'll never get to see! It takes up a full third of the space. So basically forget the pouches. Too bad. Good idea.

The top part of the strap is made of a rubbery fabric that WILL keep the strap on your shoulder. I wear my cameras in front of me strap all the way around my neck.

Nice khaki color. D rings to hitch the metal swivel fasteners to. Tiny D rings on down on the smaller straps. WHAT are they for??

You get to attach it to your camera with hardware you already have. There are no split rings or 3 bar slides.

Sort of a good strap. It turns you into a promotion for National Geographic!

If you are into logos here's your strap. If not forget it.

Applicable for both indoor and outdoor use. This strap is a perfect mix of class and toughness. The camera feels secure on your shoulders. The strap also has rubberized strips underneath to gently grip your neck so it limits rocking/sliding from side to side. I would highly recommend this product to any type photographer, you certainly won't be disappointed with the build quality. It definitely feels like a premium product.

Pros:

- Better overall feel as compared to your OEM strap (Canon/Nikon and the like)
- Rubber strips on the neckline to give photographer better handling
- Rugged outdoor look, a good step away from the conventional dark colored straps
- High quality materials and clips to fasten the strap onto the camera body
- Extra pockets on each side to carry small valuable items
- Neutral earth colors actually match any camera body, I'd say it looks good on the darker camera bodies

Cons:

- Slightly heavier feel since it uses premium materials and metal clips/hooks
- The metal parts of the strap may potentially scratch your camera body if stored incorrectly as they may rub against your camera
- May not look so good on silver colored camera bodies (not sure about this, perhaps it's just me)

That is all for now. Hope this helps some of you in your purchase.

I do a fair bit if nature hiking and photography. On longer outings I normally am wearing a small backpack with a hydration bladder. Conventional neck straps worn over the neck just cause the camera to bounce around uncomfortably as I walk. I tend to wear over the shoulder so I can hold the camera more still as I walk.

The strap has non-slip material to prevent sliding around, and it works well. The khaki color is also a benefit as it doesn't heat up in the mid-day sun. I also tried out removing the strap portion and clipping the ends directly onto the shoulder straps of my backpack, and this makes carrying the camera much more stable than around the neck. You can also clip the ends to each other and form a carry handle. Really, this strap is very versatile and comfortable to wear in the convention manner as the fabric breaths a little on a hot day. I can live without the pockets, but I have used it to store my infrared shutter remote as it fits in perfectly.

I was concerned looking at the photos and reading the description that the brass hardware might be on the cheap side. Turns out it is quite sturdy. The quick-release hooks operate smoothly and easily. The only negative I can give is how the "tails" at the camera-end look kind of ugly and awkward. It's a product of the fast mounting system, but doesn't get in the way of using the camera at all.

I wanted to get an aftermarket strap for my D7000 as soon as I saw the strap that came with it, it was very cheap and screamed "THIS IS A NIKON, STEAL ME." So I went on a long journey through the internet to try and find the perfect strap for my system, and behold I found the National Geographic Adventure Camera Strap. This thing is pretty nice, its a nice khaki color and has two small pouches on both ends where you could easily keep a remote, spare sd card, key, etc. The clips on the end make it easy to detach the part attached to the camera from the camera strap itself if you want to mount your camera to a backpack (kinda silly if you ask me). It feels like a durable product that can withstand some abuse and it looks rugged (good thing if your an outdoors man like me). So I definitely recommend this product, the only gripe I have is the confusing way of putting the strap on, I ended up doing it like a belt and not even using the plastic loops, which seems tight but its obviously wrong. BUT YEAH, great product!

I purchased this to use with my Canon 5DmkIII. Also, I purchased the NG7300 shoulder pad to go with this strap and love the two together. I carry the camera with battery pack, my Canon 600 flash and the extended battery pack for the flash for several hours and found the strap pad combination very comfortable. I am always a little concerned with new straps and the weight of my rig, but this seemed to handle with no problems and felt very secure. The pockets would hold one or the batteries for my camera. They are small, but I personally would not want much in that location on the strap anyway. Overall I love the strap and shoulder pad combination. I would not want the strap without the pad with the weight of what I carry, but would probably be fine for a lighter outfit.

I really like this strap a lot. Use it with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7. I just wish it were a little longer (possibly adjustable?). The little pockets are exactly the right size to hold spare batteries! This is a super-tough strap, and may be overkill for my little compact-system camera, but I love it. The back is rubberized (three strips), and it holds the strap in place. If everything else in the world were made this well, I would be a happy camper. Worth every penny.

I love how versatile this strap can be! I used it in two ways. 1st way was to unclip the neck strap and clip the camera to the d-rings on the shoulder straps of my hiking daypack. This was an awesome way to carry the camera across my chest. it kept the camera more stable as i covered rough terrain, all the while being ready to take the next great shot. 2nd way to use the camera strap was as shown. I kept batteries in the little pockets, so handy! Great product.

Admittedly, I am extra tall but that never really affected me with a camera strap. It works fine for me but I wish there were a bit more room for error. The non-slip feature works well. The media/battery storage could be slightly larger or otherwise secure better but I doubt I would lose anything once placed inside. I can see water easily getting in there. Nevertheless, I will stick with this one. It is very well made quality/materials-wise.

It's attractive. It's functional. Well made, which surprised me because of the low price. I think that I will learn to appreciate the mid-length clips. I have not tried it with a backpack yet. The last thing that I like is the small pockets. I have an extra battery in one and a SD card in the other. I can't find a negatives on this one. I have a Fujifilm x100s and their x20 cameras, which makes this the ideal strap for one pound cameras.
