The black, BlackRapid Cross Shot Breathe Camera Strapis designed to be worn across a right or left-handed user's body, draped from one shoulder to the opposing hip. A connected camera can then rest upside-down along the hip so that it can be quickly raised for use. This strap's 1.5" rubber-molded pad grips the shoulder, helping to keep the Cross Shot Breathe in place at all times, eliminating slips and maintaining peace of mind regardless if it is worn over the left or right shoulder. The Cross Shot Breathe's compact form factor is robust enough for heavy loads and spring-loaded bumper locks that can be slid up and down the length of the strap's nylon webbing make it especially easy to limit excess camera movement along the length of the Cross Shot Breathe.
To attach to a camera or a lens, the BlackRapid Cross Shot Breathe Camera Strap features a durable, brass and zinc-alloy CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. An included BlackRapid FR-5 FastenR Breathe creates a connection point using a camera or lens's 1/4"-20 tripod mount. The FR-5 FastenR Breathe has a large, integrated D-ring for easy use with BlackRapid straps that utilize a CR-3 ConnectR.
The length of this strap is adjustable from 36.0 to 70.0" and its webbing measures up to 1.0" wide. The Cross Shot Breathe Camera Strap is compatible with the separately-available BlackRapid Bert Breathe Extension Strap which can be used to create an additional 15.0" of length. That extension strap features a male side-release buckle on one end and a female side-release buckle at the other. Taller or larger-framed users who require more length with a Cross Shot Breathe Camera Strap can first separate the male and female ends of the webbing's side-release buckle. A Bert Breathe Extension Strap can then be snapped into the Cross Shot Breathe Camera Strap using the extension strap's male and female side-releases.
When multiple cameras or lenses need to be carried, a separately-available BlackRapid CoupleR Strap allows a BlackRapid Cross Shot-series camera strap to be joined with second camera strap, that is also compatible with a CoupleR, to create a functional double-camera harness.
A nylon pouch is provided for storage and transport, as well as a plastic BlackRapid Lockstar Breathe Carabiner Protector, which is compatible with BlackRapid straps that feature a CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. By folding over a CR-3 ConnectR, the Lockstar Breathe prevents unintentional user contact with a CR-3 ConnectR that could cause it to accidentally unlock. Additionally, it helps to block the metal surface of a CR-3 ConnectR from scratching a connected camera or lens.
