Price: £22.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Robbed blind, Way to expensive.... READ ON...., 4 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly this item will not be getting 5 star's..... it is very well made and very fit for purpose, however £30 for two of these which are basically nothing more than CNC machined threaded bolts made from I assume high grade stainless.... is simply outrageous.

Because we need this level of camera security ie it not falling to the floor, this is capatilized on basically we're being robbed blind these should not cost much more than £6 to £8 each.

Robbed blind..... because we gotta have them.

5.0 out of 5 stars My wife is a 40 year long seamstress and informs me mine is of very good quality materials don't be mugs, 1 April 2016
I have given this item 5* as it is an outstanding camera strap, However is an outrageous price, I too have many £1000's of Pro level DSLR but lets get real it's a strap... As long as the items materials are up to the job a 3rd party one will do the same job.

I paid £14 shipped for mine it's exactly the same as the Black Rapid RS-Sport strap, Now I know what your saying " can't be for that price " it is, how much do you think it really costs to make these.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is utter rubbish, it DOES NOT sharpen my knife sets any better than the round file that comes with many knife sets in wooden blocks.
Basically it's an utter waste e of money, buy a round file. However it will sharpen a knife after a great deal of time working at it, it's not as good as you think.

4.0 out of 5 stars A LITTLE SMALL FOR FULL KIT.... BUT OK., 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a little small to hold a FULL kit.... Large DSLR and loads of glass etc.

It's also quite heavy when filled with glass etc, thus not so handy to carry around, however all said and done, it's an OK bag and fit for purpose but not as big as it should be.

I've just sold a brand new Lowepro Flipside 400 AW Backpack for DSLR - Pine Green two weeks old as it's an utter pain in the rear using it..

Mind you VERY VERY well made much better then this Canon bag.

SORRY i copied and pasted as this chaps words are perfect nice bag well made BUT utter crap regarding using it......

Perfectly put by another buyer.....

This is my first modern pro camera bag; I have several thousand pounds worth of camera gear. I have been using a very robust shoulder bag from the eighties, and its still going strong! As I am walking a lot more I need a rucksack type.

The main problem with this bag is the access flap in to the main section, for some bizarre reason the two zips which start at the top and go down each side, stop just before the bottom and do no curl around the bottom so you can fold the flap back out the way for easy access with two hands? Instead you are fighting with the flap that is trying to force itself back closed. So you are holding the flap back with one hand while trying to pull your gear out with your other.

My old bag that has the zip curling around the back of the bag, this then allows the lid/flap to be folded 270 degrees away from its original position. The lowepro will only fold 120 degrees at a push without forcing too much pressure on the zips. I am no bag designer but this to me is a slight lack of common sense !
