You either like them or you don't. Depends on your style of shooting.

I don't mind them since I use 2 for my wedding gigs and sometimes a different strap altogether. I'd be interested in your thoughts

I went for a LowePro Transporter strap to try on 1 of my bodies. Its similar to this with a memory cards wallet on the strap too. I going to get another for my other body.
Sometimes I preffer the original strap, but the extra width is better for long periods.

I took delivery on one these a few days ago. While I haven't been able to use out and about yet, it seems pretty decent. Comfy, works as intended, the camera slides on the strap no probs at all. Downside it was a little expensive for what it is when comparing value for $$ against say a crumpler strap. Cant wait to spend a day with it wrapped around me.

I just came across these recently - be interested in what they are like in real life :) I do like the concept although I have gone back to being a 1 body shooter with lens bag.

what's the weight rating of these things? i see in his videos he's got a D80 and grip and 80-200 swinging freely.. personally im not too keen on letting my gear hang like that but i wouldnt mind giving one a go.

Approx how much are these things & must i buy from o'seas?

I just received mine at the start of July and cost was approx A$70 delivered. I like it and think its worth the $. BTW i order the camo. design. Which costs a little more over the std.
