The Black Rapid Camera Strap is a lightweight and low profile strap with a sizing adjustment located on the front for quick adjustments. The R-Strap is worn diagonally across the torso from shoulder to hip and is adjustable to fit most photographers. The locking FastenR connects the strap to the tripod socket located on either the camera body or the lens. Once connected, the camera hangs upside down, resting securely at the side or in the small of the back, with the lens pointing behind.

The RS-5 strap has a front pocket for carrying a smart phone, large battery, walkie-talkie, or similar sized items. There is a pocket on the top of the pad that opens up to store 9 or more memory cards, ID, credit cards, etc. The pockets close and open silently thanks to padded Neodymium magnets.
