BlackRapid are proud to announce their new range of camera straps BlackRapid Breathe.

Several years of development, innovation and customer interaction have culminated in the new BlackRapid Breathe range of camera straps that have been designed to deliver a higher level of comfort and performance.


A new shoulder pad design allows for a better weight distribution and strap position across the body, and also features a removable underarm stabilising strap.

The new shoulder pad also features an 'airmesh' grip layer, that fixes the strap's position on the shoulder more firmly, and increased ventilation that means you can wear the strap for extended periods without compromising on comfort.

In addition to the newly designed shoulder pad, the Breathe range also features

  • Duraflex Buckles lighter than previous designs with enhanced strength
  • Hypalon hook up points offering increased strength and reduced weight
  • Spring loaded bumper locks faster and easier to operate than previous models
  • CR3 Connect R refined strap connection increasing durability, security and easeofuse
  • FR5 Fasten R improved connection to camera


The new Breathe models will debut at Photokina this week and will be available on September 20, 2016 at retailers everywhere. Founder and photographer Ron Henry is excited about launching the fresh new lineup at Photokina 2016. '' We've made some changes that I think people will get excited about.'' He added, ''I f you haven't yet, we know that once you try on one of our straps you'll see why we've become the leader in the Slingstrap market today.''

About BlackRapid
BlackRapid has set the standard for camera slings since 2008. Founder/ CEO Ron Henry invented a system in which the camera hangs upside down by its tripod mount. When ready to shoot, the camera can easily glide up the webbing into position and then be placed back down at the photographer's side, hand sfree. BlackRapid combines the comfort of a well made shoulder pad with the convenience of a highly functional sling system. Based in Seattle, WA, BlackRapid's products are distributed in over 24 countries.

Pricing BlackRapid Breathe camera straps are available from 40.
