Our take on the Olympus Float Strap

Just because your camera is waterproof doesn't mean you want it sinking to the bottom of the river if you drop it. This Olympus strap provides gentle positive buoyancy so you can still snap underwater pictures without fighting to keep your camera submerged. Adjustable for the perfect fit on your wrist or arm. Includes carabiner loop for clipping to your lifejacket or scuba gear.

Product Highlights:

  • prevents waterproof cameras from sinking when dropped
  • gently bouyant so you can still take underwater photos
  • adjustable for perfect fit on your wrist or arm
  • bright orange color for visibility
  • includes carabiner loop for clipping to life jacket or scuba gear
  • warranty: 60 days
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

This should be used whenever in the pool, lake, ocean. Cheap camera security.

It does float, but too bulky.

Easy to see

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product is great! It's easy to see and it helped keep the camera on my arm while climbing the waterfall in Jamaica.

Pros: Easy to see. Holds camera securely on arm so you can have both hands free.

Cons: none

Perfectly functional

Waxy from California on 1/30/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A bit big and bulky, but it floats. And is visible, and it remains attached by a pretty-secure seeming snap. This is actually a nice feature because I can leave the other end of the snap attached to the camera all the time without having to thread or undo any straps when I take it on a boat (just snap and go).

Pros: Floats, visible, easy snap.

Cons: Bulky.

Saved my camera

Durangatang from Durango, CO on 9/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Only had because it came with camera. But it saved my camera when I dropped it overboard in the sea. Real easy to see also. I'll always use it when on the water.

Pros: Does its job and floats my Olympus TG-3 Easy to remove

Cons: none
