Once you experience the simplicity and elegance of a BlackRapid camera strap, you'll never, ever want to go back to the old neck or shoulder strap your camera came with. 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 webbing, and have it ready to shoot in under a second. BlackRapid straps can be worn with backpacks or under a jacket, and the included bumpers quickly slide and snap into place to restrict your camera's movement when you're running, climbing, or otherwise being active.
The Cargo is the strap you'll want to have when you need to carry a few extra items. The shoulder pad unfolds via a Velcro® seal to reveal two inner "wallet" pockets that are great for storing your license, a few credit cards, keys or memory cards. On the outside of the shoulder pad assembly, a padded pocket with a magnetic closure is suitable for a smartphone or similarly sized electronic items. In fact, travelling with the BlackRapid Cargo strap just might eliminate the need for lugging around your camera bag — at least in the short term. Trick out your Cargo strap by adding extra accessory storage with the "Bryce" bag, or make it even more reliable and secure with the Brad or Buck modifications.
