The BosStrap One Piece arrived late last night so I strapped it onto my camera and spent the day walking around my town. I've always been a "shoulder carrier" because front facing neck-carry was extremely uncomfortable for me. I've always cursed the stock straps because they were forever getting in my way especially when I try to quickly bring the camera from "hip rest" up to my face so I used to buy slippery straps which then made the camera slip off my shoulder all the time.
Your idea is so...simple... and yet so brilliant!
All day today I let the camera rest on my hip, sometimes without even hanging onto it. It took me a while to relax and enjoy the rather novel feeling of security the cross-chest strap gave me. At the same time when I decided to pull the camera up to take a photo, it was RIGHT THERE and came right up without snags or tugs. Also, no strap in the way of the buttons [on the camera]!
This may not be the system that works for everyone but it won me over very quickly and -I- am in heaven!
You can rest assured that I'll be telling my photography friends about this product.
Today I received your package, so it arrived well in time for my next trip. First thing I did when I got home was try it out. I was pleased to find out it's everything I wanted it to be and then some!
Thanks for developing this awesome camera sling!
This product is not known around here. Last week I was at the best equipped photography shop in the whole country (given, we are a small country [Belgium], but still) looking for a camera sling. They had some [other sling strap] items but the salesman quietly advised me not to buy one because of the tripod mount issue. So I left empty handed. Next time I walk in there I will tell about BosStrap!

Your strap is really great - although I'm eagerly waiting for the BosStrap One Piece Tail, that I ordered a few days ago. It seems to me that was the brightest idea on the BosStrap, namely to make it 'One Piece'.
