I just upgraded from a Yeti to the new Hybrid


The changes are rather subtle, until you look closely. I have been using BR products since 2008, and have used the Yeti to carry 2 bodies and large telephoto lenses at the same time comfortably. They Yeti was comfortable, with the breathable fabric this is more so. The addition of the underarm strap and the positive locks make this strap even better. Top that off with incredible service, simply WOW.

Best accessory purchase ever!


I'm not normally a review writer but I purchased this strap last year on a lark and it's turned out to be one of the best camera buys I've ever made. I'm usually carrying a full frame Nikon body with f/2.8 zooms. The weight on a neck strap is a huge pain if you have a long day of shooting.

This strap has completely eliminated that for me! I've even taken to adding the battery pack to the body so that I have a better grip. The two camera option is great for the times that I do need it. I've loaded up this up with a Nikon D800e and 80-200mm f/2.8 zoom and a D500 with a 200-500mm f/5.6 zoom. Both bodies with battery packs and no issues.

Anyone that is tired of lugging around a ton of weight but unwilling to give up the quality a full frame SLR provides, this is the answer.

Hybrid Breathe Extremely unhappy with quality unreilable strap design


Hybrid Breathe strap. Very happy with sling and comfort of the strap however I was working at -36C photographing polar bears with a brand new strap when the strap buckle at the quick release point snapped off at the point where there is a label BLACKRAPID.COM PAT. 8047729 on the shoulder webbing, I had a NIkon D500 with a 70-200 2.8 attached I just managed to catch it before it almost fell onto solid ice. At a close look there are three small plastic attachment points for the buckle which are insufficient and weak under stressfull conditions. Perhaps the temperature contributed to this product failure?
The Sport and Curve are much better as they are stitched at attachment points with no plastic clip taking the strain or weight.

Puts too much weight on one shoulder for me


This is a quality product but did not work for my intent. I had a Canon 5Diii with 100-400mm on the main strap and a Canon IS binocs on the drop down. This put too much on the one shoulder. Yes I know that is a heavy package but that is what I need to carry. This is my wildlife photo gear and this did not work. I may try the double. I like the versatility of the hydrid to use a solo, but did not work for me.
