New material and design! Now constructed with ballistic nylon, and with expanded storage and increased organizational features.
The Black Rapid RS-5 is the thickest and the most padded of the R-Straps, offering extra storage in a magnetically attached flap pocket. Great for heavy gear.
Lightweight, low profile and with a sizing adjustment located on the front, the R-Strap is worn diagonally across the torso from shoulder to hip and is adjustable to fit most photographers.
The locking FastenR-3 connects the R-Strap to the tripod socket located on either your camera body or your lens. Once connected, the camera hangs upside down, resting securely at your side or in the small of your back, with the lens pointing behind you.
With the camera at your hip or behind your back, you can maneuver easily through a crowd, carry a tripod or other gear, or simply have both hands free. When you're ready to take the shot, the camera quickly glides up the strap into shooting position.
The RS-5 has 3 pockets:
One built-in zippered pocket
One zippered pocket in pad flap
One pocket for cell phone or battery in pad flap
- Access to flap pockets is silent due to magnet closure
The RS-5 Strap features:
- Ballistic nylon and bomb-proof webbing
- Shoulder pad has mesh underside for comfort and breathability
- Access to flap pockets is silent due to padded Neodymium magnets
- Includes one ConnectoR-2 swivel clip and one FastenR-3
