Black Rapid RS-5 Strap

The RS-5 version of the R-Strap is based around a unique, layered design to accommodate more storage than you ever thought possible in a camera strap. Located on the front outside of the pad is a pocket for carrying a smart phone, large battery, walkie-talkie, or similar sized items. The top of the pad opens up to reveal even more storage within: enough to carry 9+ memory cards, ID, credit cards, and more. Load it up right, and you’ll never run out of memory or power. The silent closures are thanks to padded Neodymium magnets, so you can sift through your storage with out making a sound. Perfect for when you are sneaking up on a grizzly bear or when the bride is giving her vows!

I bought this strap back in early February and haven't taken it off since. The quality of material is and upgrade from the Manufactures Camera strap, in my case a Canon. I selected this RS-5 version of the RS-7 becasue of the addition pockects to carry batteries, memory cards, cash (for those emergency metered parking only days). The mfg states a smart phone can be stored here, not my Galaxy S3.
The locking clips to keep the camera locked at your side was the key selling point for me. Having it locked at your side when not in use such as in between setups, makes tying your shoe not an issue.
Ive gone on to recommend this strap on instagram a lot and a few have picked them up.
Great product. You will enjoy it.
