The Kick is ergonomically curved and customizable with BlackRapid standard accessories. BlackRapid camera straps are designed to help your cameras hang in a logical location, upside down and down by your hip. Simply screw the FR-3 FastenR screw/washer hand-tight to your camera's tripod mount hole, then use the included ConnectR carabiner that's attached to your strap as a lever to securely tighten the FastenR. Now you can grab a camera by its gripping surface, glide it up along the strap's surface, and have it ready to shoot in under a second.
NOTE: $10 from purchase of each pink Kick strap goes to the Carey Foundation to benefit men and women diagnosed with breast cancer.

BlackRapid Kick Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Took the weight off my neck and distributed it on my shoulder. Much more comfortable than a traditional strap.
Pros: Camera doesn't swing in a way that it could get damaged. Held at my side with lens facing down.
Cons: The clip attaches in the tripod mount without another hole so must be removed to attach tripod.
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Bought this for my wife on a recommendation. So far she's liking it
Pros: Comfortable. Durable. Well-designed. Great price.
Cons: None so far.

Overview: The BlackRapid Kick (RS-2) is a simple sling camera strap, designed by and optimized for women photographers. The shoulder pad has a slight curve that ergonomically fits over the left shoulder for added comfort, and places the strap in the center of the chest. The Kick is compatible with the MOD-series of accessory pockets and supports.
Sling Strap: The sling strap concept makes it easy to carry your camera by your side, and quickly bring it up to the shooting position. When not in use, the camera hangs upside down at your hip. A threaded FastenR screws into the camera's tripod socket, and is held secure with a rubber washer. The locking ConnectR on the sling strap clips onto the camera via the FastenR, allowing it to glide up and down the strap. Two adjustable locking bumpers on the strap will limit the range of the camera's gliding motion. A Lock Star connector cover is included to prevent the ConnectR from coming unfastened unintentionally, and to protect the camera body from scratches.
Materials: The Kick's pad is made of Ballistic Nylon on the top, with a 1/2-inch thick polyurethane foam pad with Knitted mesh. The sling strap is 1" wide and the length can be adjusted to nearly 63". The strap includes a zinc alloy ConnectR (CR-2) and a black nickel-coated stainless steel FastenR (FR-3).
MOD-Compatible: The Kick is equipped with a loop on the pad for adding the Joey 1, Joey 2, and Joey 3 clip-on storage pouches. For large users, the Bert extension strap clips on to give you an additional 15" of length. If you need extra security, the Buck buckle covers help deter would-be thieves from unbuckling the strap and stealing your gear.
