Our take on the BlackRapid Brad

by Woody Sherman

Add even more stability and security while you're on the move with your R-Series BlackRapid camera strap. Designed to bring out the best stability with Classic, Curve, Cargo, or Metro straps, the Brad clips to your strap at either side of the shoulder pad, and passes underneath your arm. Snug it tight and the shoulder pad stays locked in place, even when you're climbing or moving quickly.
