The new Utility Strap - Sling offers rapid access to your camera or binoculars while maintaining the security of a strap worn across the shoulder. Using OP/TECH USA's exclusive Uni-Loop connectors, your gear hangs securely at your side and will glide up and down the sling without interfering with a camera's tripod connection. Two Uni-Loop connectors (included with strap) allow for use with a pro battery pack and offer even more options for carrying gear.

The sling at first glance is very well made and sturdy. I quickly read through the instruction and well, starting looking at the things people were crying about in the reviews. I will go through each one in a minute. With in 1 minute the sling was attached to my DSLR, the strap was adjusted and I mastered the sling, folks it doesn't get any easier than this.
First the loop connecters are great, no buckles to come loose. The snap-in connecters on the handi loop are super strong, they won't go anywhere or come undone. I adjusted the length to where the right side of the camera body where the connection is made is hanging just at my waist, I can go another two inches lower but then it would be in my pocket. Where it is resting I can allow my right hand to semi-rest on the body as my hand was in my pocket. Nice and comfy. Folks I am a stout man that wears XXL T shirts with a 50'' chest and this sling fits me fine. Bringing the camera to my eye and NOTHING gets in the way. It glides up smooth as butter every time. Now (ladies I am sorry) The front strap buckle if used right handed will be in the center of your chest right in the cleavage. You can move it some up or down but for the most comfy fit it was there on me. A smaller person it may fit differently. Works fine with my back pack. If you want to and it can be done but it takes away for the proper use of the strap but can let it hang in front of you. Not sure why anyone would do this though.
Two things you need to get use to.
1. the camera dangling at your waist or side. I am use to it snug on my chest or in my hand with wrist strap. Resting your hand it helps. This is an easy thing to overcome.
2. attaching the handi loop to the right side of the camera. Can't turn the camera on end with right side up with out moving the handi loop buckle out of the way. No big deal to me but will take some getting use too.
3. Only had it for one day. I will put it through its paces and report any problems or things that might annoy people.
Now about the cons some reviewers posted
1. the extra handi loop, really? It does not have to dangle. Here is what I Did. I used the lowest loop for the camera. I look the other loop and pulled it to the top buckle. I put the loop through the gap between the buckle and the strap then pulled it over the buckle (just like attaching it to the camera) Whammo it is out of the way, not dangling, pulled tight and I have an extra loop with me all the time. That took about 45 seconds to figure out.
2. The buckle gets in the way of the eye piece. How? Only if you turn the looped end up to take an inverted picture. Easy to fix, turn the left side up instead of to the right. I will have to get use to that myself but hey it's not hard.
3. only attaches to one point. Won't work well attached at both camera loops, not designed to. This system blows away any two point camera strap. Can't believe I never went this way before.
4. doesn't work left handed. Yes it does. Here is what I did. I put the handi-loop on the left side of the camera instead of the right. Now the little slide buckle that was on the back for a righty is now in front, soooo slide it all the way up to the shoulder buckle and it is a perfect fit. It comes to the eye perfectly and NOTHING is in the way.
5. The OP/Tech USA Logo on the shoulder strap. It isn't that big so It doesn't bother me, yet. I don't advertise for free. If it bothers you take a black sharpie and trace it out. Problem solved.
6. Doesn't work if using a back pack. yes it does. The strap goes over your shoulders and over the BP straps. I don't see the problem and It worked fine for me.
This strap is perfect! It can be adjusted so that my camera hangs upside down at my waist with the lens pointing backwards. This keeps everything as close to my body as possible. All I have to do is put my right hand on the camera to "stabilize" it when walking at a fast clip. But for general walking around I don't even find the need to do that. When I get to an area that I am going to spend a little time working, I will keep my camera attached and find a few areas and set-ups that I think will work. Once I have determined that, I will setup my tripod, unclip the camera from the strap, and get clamped onto the tripod to begin working. The quick release strap that hangs from the base of the camera is not even an issue. It hangs completely out of the way of both my hands and the quick release clamp. Even when in vertical shooting it is out of the way. When I set my camera down on a table, all I have to do is hold the "clip" out to the side and set the camera down. Then the camera is not sitting on top of the clip itself. The short uni-strp is long enough to allow the clip to sit just outside the camera body when doing this.
As far as comfort is concerned... I shoot with a Nikon Df (which is fairly light) and a few pro zoom lenses such as the 14-24 and 24-70 which are both considered by most to be fairly heavy lenses. The kit (with my heaviest lens and quick release plate attached) weighs just shy of 5 lbs. I find that I hardly notice my camera hanging at my side at all.
One thing you may hear others saying about any "quick release" strap system is that in crowded urban environments you are asking for someone to steal your camera. I get that, but at the same time... a little common sense goes a long way. Just keep your hand on your camera, slid it to the front a bit, and be aware of your surroundings. The clip itself takes a bit of pressure to release, and when I carry my camera with my hand on it, I don't worry too much. If that is going to be a concern to you, then just unclip the camera and put it in your bag. The bottom line is that a quick-release strap in-and-of-itself is not going to make someone steal your camera off your body any more or less than a strap around your neck.
Bottom line: this is exactly what I needed and no other strap on the market (that I've seen) is made to fit this bill. SO, if you need the same set-up as I do, then I say go for it. Besides, it's half the price of many others on the market and made every bit with the same care and quality. Not to mention... in the USA! Although, I'm sure that's not deal maker since most cameras are made overseas anyway. Hope this helps!
