Slide owners, how does the wider strap feel in comparison to the narrower ones used in black rapid/luma/other brands typically use?

whee, just picked up my clutch and slide from the post office yesterday. anchors feel secure so far, i actually could not get them out at one point but that might have just been user error. the slide is pretty nice, feels nice and adjusts smoothly, and camera sits comfortably to the side as expected.

i agree with @daphatty though, the clutch was a little disappointing. the padded part was thinner and cheaper feeling than a less-than-$5 random third party hand strap that i got off ebay a long time ago and the bottom strap (where the stitching is) actually chaffed against the edge of my palm when in use. i am going to keep it though because my previous hand strap cannot attach to my camera with the pd bottom attachment plate installed.

I received my clutch, anchors, and capture clip last Friday. While I love the Anchors, the Clutch was very disappointing. It feels cheap. I might try to replace the grip with a leather one I already own. Or I may just sell it.

Just received my slide and clutch too. I got their toolkit which is really nice. Can be used to tighten down the screws on the capture unit without getting my thumbs sore.

First, it's kind of short compared with my memory of the Black Rapid sling but it should work out. I'd prefer it a bit longer. Second, the neck/shoulder padding is kind of non-existent. I think I'd rather have gone back to UpStrap and just purchased Peak Designs quick release system. The strap is definitely wide! I'll be using their previous (and very narrow) strap for street photography due to the Slide's bulk, but for those long days of dangling camera the Slide should work out well.

Agreeded. I wish the slide was a little longer (of course I'm a bit "wider" then your average bear). I'd rather it be longer then have the padding (I think the padding is that limits its length that way it can still be made short enough to be a neck strap)

The clutch is nice. Doesn't quite tighten down enough to where you don't need to hold the camera but still my favorite hand strap so far. Love the quick adjustability.

Mine arrived today. It's a xmas present for my wife. So, I wont be able to check it out for a few weeks. It almost looks like it has two plates with it. One on the sling strap, and a separate dual plate. Is this correct?

Love loove loooooveeee the Clutch. Been using it since September. It practically lives on my camera now. I switch straps a lot, depending on what/how much I'll be using the camera that day, so the Slide hasn't got a ton of use, plus, mine was one of the ones with the bad clips, so I put it out of service until the new clips came in.

The material of the PD straps is just like your seatbelt. It's pretty soft and tends to roll rather than cut into your neck. But, it's also stiff and doesn't give you any feeling of lightness like an OP|TECH strap will. I do like it quite a lot. I use the PD Sling strap on my Fuji X100S a lot.
