Something isn't right here; but without being able to see, I can't really make any other suggestions. Your wrists shouldn't be *that* much bigger than mine, and when fully lengthened, the Cuff fits a tiny bit loose when looped around.

I understand what you're saying; I'm just don't get HOW that's the case. In the end, it doesn't really matter, though; if it doesn't work for you, it doesn't work for you.

Take a picture of how you have it setup so we can see of there is anything wrong.

I keep switching between the both. I currently have the herringbone on. The Cuff is so versatile that I use it on my point and shoot as well.

This is the best wrist strap I have ever owned!

It's a little tacky, but does a fantastic job at gripping onto you without causing restriction. It adjusts and will only cuff if you were to let go of your camera.

Actually this might be the case. In the specs for the "Cuff" it is stated "Strap length: fixed 8 inch strap has an adjustable cinch to control tightness around your wrist". I'm told I have a relatively small hand and the circumference just above the wrist is exactly 8 inches.

I received this from customer service FYI for anyone ordering one.

Thanks for reaching out to us. The "doubled-up" portion of webbing on Cuff was a product improvement that we recently made. We added the doubled-up section to create a stop for the adjuster - the issue is that folks were sliding their adjuster all the way to the end of the Cuff webbing, and then were unable to reconfigure Cuff properly.

We have heard from a small number of customers who are unhappy with the new doubled up section, and so we're currently investigating a better, more ergonomic solution to the problem which will also add some length to the cuff.

They changed the design and will be fixing the problem I am having. Clearly I got a smaller size. Great Customer Service though!
