Great strap

  • Excerpt: Straps vs. bags can be an issue but this is a good strap that is well made. A piece of clothes line might be OK too but you wouldn't really want to. I use the bottom clip around the rubber feet because they hold fast and DO NOT slip. Getting the adjustment of the slack is personal so try different lengths until it feels right.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible

long hikes

  • Excerpt: I carry my Gitzo Serie 2 carbon tripod with the strap on my mountain hikes, sometimes steep up and steep down and for several hours without any fatigue or stressed neck.It might be a bit pricey when you buy it, but after a day long hike you won't mind anymore and you think it was well worth...

OK with a grain of salt

  • Excerpt: It is easy to install and fits well on the shoulder. However, I discovered that my Gitzo tripod is so light that spending money on the strap was a poor choice. It is easier to simply wrap fingers around a tripod legs and carry the tripod in my grip. It is an unnecessary distraction. But it works.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Strong Construction, Well Padded

Did Gitzo really make this?

  • Excerpt: I purchased this strap to use with my Gitzo carbon fiber tripod. Attaching it to the head of the tripod is easy enough and it appears secure but the cord used doesn't seem very durable. The attachment to the bottom of the tripod is cumbersome and sometimes slips loose if not carefully attached. The padding on the strap is wide and thick.
  • Cons: Difficult to Attach, Poorly Padded

  • Excerpt: Quality product. Great padding on shoulder strap. Finally, not more hand holding the tripod to locations or carrying an annoying tripod bag, which you have to put somewhere during shoots.

Easy to use and comfortable.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this strap to carry my Gitzo carbon fiber tripod versus putting it on my LowePro camera backpack. The tripod carried too high on the backpack causing the pack to be top heavy if my Acratech ballhead was attached. This makes it so much easier to carry it. Quick release straps make it easy and fast to get to. Only thing that I may question is how long the quick release lanyards will last.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Well Padded

Perfect!

  • Excerpt: I love this strap because it has a wide shoulder strap that doesn't dig. You also don't have to remove the entire strap to use the tripod. You only have to undo one little bucket. I use it on a Gitzo GT2541. Perfect!!

Good strap for carrying tripod

Roger, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a good quality strap that makes it more comfortable to carry the tripod for long distances as opposed to carrying the tripod over your shoulder. I thought it was reasonably priced given the Gitzo brand name.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Does not Chafe, Strong Construction, Well Padded
