WARNING

Don’t leave your expensive camera gear in the hot interior of your vehicle. The photos below are an example of what happens when a BLACKRAPID strap is left in the back window, the sun literally burns through it. Ouch! 
 

WHEN IN DOUBT, KEEP IT WITH YOU.

Be safe, keep your gear safe, #LiveTheMoment, and have a great weekend!
