Sport Breathe

Original Series

3 Reviews

The Sport camera sling strap has been our #1 seller since the day it was introduced in 2009. Featuring high-tech materials for breathability, and our patented shoulder pad shape for ergonomic comfort, this workhorse of a strap shows no sign of slowing down. The Sport is the strap of choice by both Nikon and Canon when co-branding with us. Our hardware has been tested and re-tested, and we feel we have nailed it with the locking carabiner and LockStar providing a one-two punch for security and safety.

This single sling camera strap is great for all uses and all types of cameras, especially SLR and DSLR. It holds tight on the shoulder with its included underarm stabilizer, and is good for most any type of photo shoot, amateur or pros alike.

Always by your side and ready for any moment, once you try it you'll never look back. It’s that good.

Trade in program: BLACKRAPID owners are eligible for a great trade-in program when it's time to retire your hard-working friend in need of an upgraded sling strap.

Simply the best.


Picked up this strap 2 weeks ago, and after 2 all-day use tests I must say, this beats all of the straps I've used, and I've tested several of the more 'recent' ones.

Great Strap for Photographers Who Hike!


I bought my Sport Breathe strap when I purchased my new Nikon and I wish I knew about it sooner! I hike and camp with my camera, so it was very important for me to have a comfortable strap where I wouldn't feel weighed down by my equipment. It's super comfortable, great quality, easy to use, and distributes the weight of my almost 4-pound setup along my shoulders in a way where it isn't a chore to have my camera on me. Highly recommend this product and I will continue to purchase BlackRapid products in the future.

Sport Strap


Was looking for a camera strap for my new Nikon. Found the Sport strap and decided to give it a try. Used on my trip to George Bush Library and found it very comfortable, Camera was at my at my side within easy reach, strap was not in the way while using the camera, did not have to disconnect the camera from the strap allowing for quick and easy shots, easy to maintain control of camera while hanging at my side.
Great product.
