For the photographer/birdwatcher carrying a heavy camera or binoculars, the Super Classic Strap™ is a great option. It adds the patented internal control-stretch system to our Non Skid Surface.
For the photographer/birdwatcher carrying a heavy camera or binoculars, the Super Classic Strap™ is a great option. It has the same tailored design as the popular Classic Strap™; however, it adds the patented internal control-stretch system found in our S.O.S. Strap™ in addition to our non-skid surface. This combination is ideal for the individual wanting a narrower strap design that has the needed strength and comfort features required for handling a heavy load.
The Super Classic Strap™ is available in four popular connection options:

How to Attach a 3/8" Webbing Connector to your Camera (For the 3/8" and Bino versions)
1. Pass the end of the webbing through the connector on the camera.
2. Pass it back through the first opening on the plastic buckle.
3. Pass it through the second opening on the plastic buckle.
4. Pull tight for a secure hold.
How to Attach a Uni Loop™ Connector to your Camera (For the Uni-Loop version)
1. Thread Uni Loop™ through connection point on camera.
2. Thread quick disconnect through opening of Uni Loop™ Connector.
3. Pull quick disconnect to tighten knot.
How to Attach a Pro Loop Connector to your Camera (For the Pro Loop version)
The Pro Loop Strap™ uses 1/4" tubular nylon webbing to fit easily in tight connection areas. It attaches to the connection point of a camera the same way the Uni-Loop System Connector does.
1. Detach the connection system from the strap at the quick disconnects. Slide the loop end of the Pro Loop Strap™ through the connection point of the camera.
2. Then pass the other end of the Pro Loop Strap™ through the loop.
3. Pull the connection system tight to form a secure hold. Re-attach the connection system to the strap.
I own a number of OpTech neck straps as well as their sling strap and wrist strap. I cannot find a similar value or utility in other brands. I also use the uniloop system of connection so changing options is a snap! I can heartily recommend them to anyone looking for price and quality in a camera carrying system. I have also had excellent customer service from Frank with the custom neck straps I have ordered. Don't walk - RUN to get one of these!
This is a very well made product, but as one who was unfamiliar with the Op/Tech line, it was not clear that the Super-classic Strap - UniLoop would limit add-on options vs the strap with Pro-loop. If you are looking to take full advantage of the versatility of the Op/Tech system go with the Pro-loop (connects at the strap), you will have many more options. I shoot a lot with a 2.8 70-200 lens, so was looking forward to adding a sling strap adaptor, but can't see how this would be possible. The Super Classic Uni-loop is a great strap, but that is all it will be.
This is absolutely best strap which you can get. I was looking for it during my stay in USA as I read a lot about it here in EU. After all, I had to order it without seeing it. After I opened the package, I just started to smile as it is GREAT GREAT GREAT piece of equipment. I use it together with “Utility Strap with Quick Disconnects” for a camera bag and I have to say it is pleasure to carry it.
Of course you still feel your heavy camera on your neck but it is nothing comparing to standard strap. I have just spend 7 hours of taking pictures with the camera bag on my shoulder and camera on my neck and I have to say I could continue without problems ;-)
Thank you once again and hope you will keep this standard.
Comfortable, perfect. Used with Pentax DSLRs.
What is the difference between the Bino 3/8" and the 3/8" strap?
The Bino 3/8" does not have quick disconnects while the 3/8" has quick disconnects at the the strap pad.
I recently purchased the Super Classic Uni-Loop and wanted to ask will the Super Classic Uni-Loop Strap work with the Mini QD Loops?
You can connect the loop end of the Super Classic Strap Uni-Loop to the open end of the Mini QD Loops. However, you can't connect the actual quick disconnects - they are different sizes. The Super Classic Strap uses regular sized quick disconnects and the Mini QD Loops use "mini" quick disconnects.
Is it possible to order the Super Classic camera strap with the uni adapter loop rather than the pro loop? I don't see that listed as an option.
Yes, you can order the Super Classic Strap with the Uni Adapter Loop. Go to the Custom Strap page and you can select the options you want.
