You got an upgrade kit for your cinch1? What did it include?

I think the upgrade kit is just the Arca plate + quick links, no?

I just got my cinch2. It will be on the forum f/s today. Same price as new, but it will ship today. And you'll get it in 1-3 days, since I'm in mid-atlantic.

Why are you selling yours? I'm going to give mine a few more days before I make a decision, but I'm also considering selling mine.

I kinda hopped on the train because of the hype in this thread, but it's not working out for me thus far. It's not even because of the way I have it mounted that bothers me like I mentioned in an earlier post, but I prefer sling straps where the camera glides along the strap and the entire strap doesn't actually have to rotate. I'm not sure if it's just me or the clothes that I wear, but the grippy shoulder strap always moves my shirt out of place every time I bring the camera to my eye or back down to my hip. With other sling straps (the other one I have/use is the OpTech), the actual strap stays in place so the shoulder pad is always on your shoudler. Then, the camera glides along the strap. The OpTech still isn't the perfect solution for me, but it's the best I've found.

Like I said, I'm going to give it a few more days or a week to decide if the Cinch 2 will work for me.

i have the cinch1, will keep it.
was going to use the cinch2 on my other body, but decided to put the money towards other things.
since the cinch2 is new, I'll sell it. most people would want a new strap.

Yup. The upgrade kit was just Luma's Arca Swiss plate and quick links. Really liked the cinch 1 so it was nice to just get the parts I needed.

This is just my experience. The Cinch 1 worked the same way and people seem to love it.

I just flipped the strap over, so the grippy stuff is on top. I too wasn't fond of this, but after that change I love it.

Excellent! This is our design intent.

The grippy surface on the Cinch 2 is super tacky and can be annoying when wearing lighter weight, somewhat tacky materials like cotton t-shirts or lightweight wool sweaters. This is why we made the shoulder pad flippable.

Come winter, when you'll be wearing smoother faced fabrics, soft shells and rain jackets, the grippy side is absolutely perfect against these slippery materials.

Greg suggested this to me via PM (thanks, Greg) and I remember he mentioned this in a post awhile back. It is MUCH better! But I'm leaving it with the grippy side down because I don't like the way the strap looks when the grippy side is revealed. I know, function over form. But aesthetics is important to me, sue me. :lol:

We don't have winters in SoCal. :lol: (okay, so I have to endure one more Chicago winter while I'm in school. but I still call San Diego home!)

Perhaps designing and making things in Portland has a downside? :)

I basically spend 8 months of the year living in Arc'Teryx and TAD Gear jackets, so it isn't a huge shocker that I would design our product around that use case.

I spent 6 weeks in Portand for an internship last summer. AWESOME food. Crappy weather. All my patients told me summer starts July 4th. They were right on the money, I couldn't believe it! haha

Personally, I wouldn't see having 8 months of weather that requires Arc'Teryx or TAD Gear (or 686, or . . .) as a downside, except if compared to being able to spend all 12 months in that gear, comfortably. Here we have 4 months during which it's impossible to get comfortable and stay "street-legal", 3 months of shirt-sleeve weather, 4 months where a light shell's more than plenty, and 1 month where it's cool enough to be comfortable exercising. Unfortunately that 1 month's worth of comfortable weather is spread across the period Sept. - May!
