Our take on the BlackRapid Double

by Woody Sherman

Carry two cameras without having them get in the way

BlackRapid's Double is your go-to camera system when you need the stability and load-carrying capacity of a full shoulder harness. The two shoulder pads allow you to evenly share the load of two cameras while keeping both of them ready and easy to grip. Two separate straps, hanging straight down at either side, keep your two cameras out of the way while moving, yet easy to reach on demand. And if you remove the three connections that join the two straps, you can use each of them in a single-strap configuration, simply by moving each strap to the opposite shoulder.

Included with the Double is an accessory called the CoupleR. The CoupleR attaches to both straps in the back to pull them closer together, thereby causing your cameras to hang even closer to each side. Don't forget, you can make your Double even more versatile by adding extra accessory storage with the "Joey" bags, or more stability with the Brad and Buck modifications, all available separately.

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 surface, 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.

Overview: The BlackRapid Double (DR-1) is a unique dual sling camera strap system for carrying two cameras. The straps can be separated and worn on the opposite shoulder as individual camera straps. The Double includes an elastic coupler that pulls the straps together in the back to provide more stability for the cameras.

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. The Double includes straps for two cameras, one on the left and one on the right.

Materials: The Double's pad is made of Ballistic Nylon on the top, with a 0.4" thick polyurethane foam pad with Knitted mesh. The sling straps are 1" wide and the length can be adjusted to about 63" (including pad) on each side. Each strap includes a zinc alloy ConnectR (CR-2) and a black nickel-coated stainless steel FastenR (FR-3).

MOD-Compatible: The Double 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.
