Our take on the BlackRapid ProtectR

by Woody Sherman

The BlackRapid ProtectR is a Velcro®-equipped strap enclosure that's reinforced with a steel security cable that's 1.5mm in diameter. It wraps around your camera strap (or any other bag strap less than 3-1/2 centimeters wide), and provides a solid and lightweight security barrier around the perimeter of your camera strap, so you'll be protected against theft while traveling.
