Excellent strap, giving me peace of mind and make my camera a lot lighter
on February 12, 2014
The subject tells all I wanna say.
At the 1st few times using it, I'd worry if the strap or bearing would fail. After more than 2 years using it, I can tell you it is incredibly robust.
The heaviest gear I'd carry on this strap is Canon 5DII, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II, 580EXII with various Lumiquest gels, Big Bounce. I run around happily for a full day, though I'm tiny in body build.
Deducting 1 star due to:
1. The strap is too long for my size, I have rolled a lot of it inside the shoulder pad, making the shoulder pad very thick.
2. The should pad often slide out of position, to my back or near my butt. Not a big problem, just not looking elegant.
3. At the spot of the strap that the bearing and weight usually hang around, there're one or two tiny steel wire poking out. Kind of sharp, but I've never gotten hurt so far. Just need to keep aware of.
My other serious promateur friends saw me on this strap, changing from their Black Rapid to this one due to the steel wire giving peace of mind protecting his gears.
