I'm more of a fan of the smaller Cuff product that was also announced so I decided to support that instead. What are everyone else's impressions?

For the record, I am not affiliated with Peak in any way.

Saw that on their facebook.

I love my Clik elite wrist scrap but I hate having it hang there when I'm not using it so the cuff looks like an excellent option. Might have to grab one.

I'd be happier if you could make it a true sliding sling but it doesn't look that way. It looks like the strap itself is what slides. The price is pretty good. I might try one out just on a trial basis.

Op/Tech offers a very comfortable and detachable wrist strap. I use it 90% of the time.

This sounds like a great affordable product. I pledged my $40 for the neck strap and wrist strap. I am constantly annoyed at having my strap dangling off of my camera when it is on a tripod. I also don't like to have to wrap my thick Canon strap around my wrist to use it as a wrist strap. This should make managing my straps a whole lot easier.

It is a pretty good deal if you get the leash and the capture clip. The clip itself sells for 80.

Just pledged for leash and cuff to try. Already have two capture clips and couldn't imagine not having them. Came in especially useful when we were in Alaska.

I got the $80.00 set which includes Leash, Cuff and Capture. Can't wait to get mine and try them out.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Wow... How many different neck/whatever straps do we need... Personally I have never felt I needed anything more than what Op/Tech provided for much less the cost and tried and true quality and products.

Not a fan of the connectors, even the oldest ideas can be improved.

And theyre asking 25$/strap free s/h.... how much cheaper is the Optech that its "much less the cost" ? and whats "True quality and products" ? Both can be good quality ?

This looks good to me. I'm in for a strap.

I like the connectors. I like that there isn't much left dangling from the camera when disconnected, and the part that is left appears to be semi-rigid, so it's not really "dangling" at all. I also like that the strap has a small footprint and can be crammed in your pocket while disconnected. I don't care for the way some other straps have the disconnect point at the top near the neck padding.

I almost got the capture clip from these guys when it was on Kickstarter, but wasn't sure I'd have any real use for it. I'm glad they are still designing interesting products and glad I'll be able to support them with this one.

Just backed for the Cuff and Clip - can't buy the Clip itself for $60 ($70) with shipping to me and I'm loving the look of the Cuff for the wrist strap.

Same here mate, I was just asking in another thread about tips on a strap that can be easily removed from the body and found this thread. Watched the video and preodered the leash in less than 5 minutes. Really looking forward to this.
