Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Camera

Camera:
"I had it on my Canon 6D and was walking to my shoot when the PLASTIC D ring failed and dumped my $3500 camera and lens on the ground."
_
"I knew we were gonna do a lot of walking and I hate having my camera bounce in front of me."
_
"I'd be sure to use a screen protector with this and be watchful of any sharp or metal items that could damage your camera."
_
"The screw kept twisting around every time i walked around and would get loose....my camera fell three times, finally after the scratches from the first two falls....the third fall broke my camera."
_
"The padded shoulder area doesn't stay on the shoulder so you have to constantly adjust it, which gets annoying by about the 4-5 time you raise the camera to take a photograph."
_
"Fourth, I wish I had thought about it screwing into the bottom of the camera because this design makes the camera hard to fit in my camera bag and makes it so I have to unscrew the strap to use a tripod, which is a pretty big inconvenience."
_
"I have it the camera I keep in my vehicle and it is great for quick grabbing and going."
_
"It's the simplest method that I've found when I need a quick, uncomplicated way to have easy and secure access to two cameras."
_
"This strap is great to wear cross-body and be able to grab your camera quickly to take a shot."
_
"I use a hand strap for my camera and this is a nice way to carry it without using a bag."
_
"This strap is absolutely wonderful, and great for if you have two cameras crossing over each other."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Strap worked as advertised and was comfortable but failed in less than 2 months."
_
"To solve these problems I went looking for something more comfortable."
_
"the strap fits wonderfully and is comfortable, I wore it all day long."
_
"The shoulder pad is comfortable, able to carry the load of Canon 70D, battery grip and an 18-135mm lens, and the sling all-in-all is value for money at this price range as compared to the more expensive BlackRapid straps (Take note: I also have one of the cheaper BlackRapid sling -- Crosshot).The only drawback is the mounting attachment which as pointed out by some reviewers juts out too much, more than an inch, such that you have to unscrew it if it prevents you from putting the camera with the strap in your camera bag quickly."
_
"...highly superior to standard straps the come with most cameras...easier on the load as well...takes a few walks about to be comfortable with it...VERY WELL MADE..."
_
"Works well and it's comfortable."
_
"Nicely made, very comfortable, and easily adjusted."

Fit

Fit:
"Fourth, I wish I had thought about it screwing into the bottom of the camera because this design makes the camera hard to fit in my camera bag and makes it so I have to unscrew the strap to use a tripod, which is a pretty big inconvenience."
_
"I can deal with that but with the clip protruding it doesn't fit well in the camera bag, or not at all in the compact bag."
_
"For me this protrusion has meant a not so easy fit for my camera with the strap connected and my camera bag's side zipper access."
_
"Great but it doesn't fit well to my camera with the battery grip, but for my camera only it works very well."
_
"the strap fits wonderfully and is comfortable, I wore it all day long."
_
"Fits comfortably on the shoulder, much more so than a conventional neck strap."
_
"It also doesn't fit in the camera bag very well, but I remove it for that."
_
"I love how it fits."
_
"This is a great strap for an alternative to a Black Rapid that costs $60-$70.It works and fits me well!"

Lens

Lens:
"I had it on my Canon 6D and was walking to my shoot when the PLASTIC D ring failed and dumped my $3500 camera and lens on the ground."
_
"I have a Nikon D3200 and it will hold it perfectly and I am confident it won't break apartI recommend you to keep it as tight as possible because if it's too loose the camera bounces a bit possibly damaging the lens"
_
"His original strap would (as most do) keep his camera pointing straight out from his chest, which was especially annoying with his hard hood on the lens."
_
"It's not good to let your camera just dangle with a large lens attached for risk of damaging your mount or the lenses mounting plate."
_
"I recomend a lense hood, because it may hit some wall if you turn fast, nothung dangerous but there is nothing wrong with a bit extra precaution."
_
"Great for keeping a heavy camera & lens from giving you an aching neck during an all day outdoor photo hike."
_
"I use it with my Canon t2i with a battery grip and a 55-250 lens and it is almost perfect."
_
"Holds my EOS T5 with 55-250mm lens easily! "
_
"The screw and plastic bolt combination does a nice job attached to the tripod collar of the lens."

Quick

Quick:
"The solution to this problem was I replaced it with FOTOTECH Quick Release Trigger Snap hook Ring I got here from Amazon."
_
"You have quick access so you'll never miss those great shots."
_
"There is one downside which is a quick release tripod mounting plate cannot be mounted with this."
_
"I don't recommend having both this quick sling and a camera strap attached to your camera."

_
"The convenience of having my camera at my fingertips for quick access for great shots is worth taking a few extra measures to insure that the camera is protected."

Strap

Strap:
"Strap worked as advertised and was comfortable but failed in less than 2 months."
_
"This is the drawback of not having a secondary strap underneath the shoulder around the armpit, but the benefit is that it's much easier to put on and remove, and also doesn't look as goofy in public."
_
"But I wouldn't recommend this particular strap."
_
"Also, the strap is very wide, which makes it uncomfortable on a female frame, rubs against my neck...on the rare occasion it actually sits where it's supposed to sit."
_
"Third, the strap twists constantly, and then it doesn't slide easily like it is supposed to."
_
"The threads on one end (the non-elastic end to be exact) just failed and came undone, and if I hadn't had my hand on my camera at my side at the time would have been a $2000+ dollar strap failure."
_
"This is a decent little strap."
_
"The straps and connectors are well-made and solid, and the shoulder pad is wide enough to stay securely in place with no slipping."
_
"I have enjoyed having this strap."
_
"This strap is great to wear cross-body and be able to grab your camera quickly to take a shot."
_
"I use a hand strap for my camera and this is a nice way to carry it without using a bag."

Tripod

Tripod:
"Works well, however the provided tripod attachment screw is very large and inconvenient if you want to throw your camera quickly into a case with limited space."
_
"There is one downside which is a quick release tripod mounting plate cannot be mounted with this."
_
"I very rarely use a tripod but if I used one a lot this may be annoying having to unscrew every time."
_
"The only downside to this design is the way the strap connects to the tripod screw connector on the base of your camera."
_
"Fourth, I wish I had thought about it screwing into the bottom of the camera because this design makes the camera hard to fit in my camera bag and makes it so I have to unscrew the strap to use a tripod, which is a pretty big inconvenience."
_
"Works well, however the provided tripod attachment screw is very large and inconvenient if you want to throw your camera quickly into a case with limited space."
_
"The screw and plastic bolt combination does a nice job attached to the tripod collar of the lens."
_
"I use it with a bottom accessory mount plate that holds this strap and a logitech wrist strap for easy removal to go on just the wrist strap or to a tripod"
_
"Another value is that you can unscrew the strap from the bottom of the camera easily, screw in your tripod mount, and NOT have a strap hanging off the camera while using your tripod."
