I purchased this as a gift for my husband who is our family photographer. Apparently it's very vogue right now to show your personal flair with a custom DSLR strap. I was worried that this would be too small or not strong enough for his Canon and the extra battery packs, but it is FANTASTIC. Far exceeded our expectations, and the leather body-facing side is very comfortable for him. Lots and lots of compliments from other photogs -- hobbyists and professionals alike! You really cannot beat this price either.
