BLACKRAPID Guest Blog Post by Ambassador’s Erin McGrady + Caroline Whatley | BLACKRAPID Classic Retro RS-4
A CLASSIC IS A CLASSIC FOR A REASON:
it’s reliable, it’s highly functional, it’s of superior quality and it’s stood up to the test of time (ten years!). This strap meets all of those criteria and so it’s no wonder that it’s still a favorite among photographers, including ourselves.
ONE OF OUR FAVORITE FEATURES OF THE CLASSIC RETRO RS-4
is the small zippered pocket which is where we love to keep a memory card, business cards, our ID and the occasional hotel key.
AS FOR CONSTRUCTION,
the shoulder pad is made of PU foam and offers cushioning without the loss of breathability. We’ve worn it on the hottest of days and it was still comfortable. The best part is, this strap can be worn on either the left or right shoulder. We typically wear ours across our left shoulder but on long adventures or photo shoots, it comes in handy to be able to switch the camera to our right shoulder and give the other one a rest.
ALL IN ALL,
this is one of our go-to straps because it’s lightweight (5.9 ounces), looks good, feels good and works well in multiple scenarios.
Thanks for sharing your professional insight and awesome photos, Erin and Caoline!
