I own various Swarovski, Leica and Zeiss binoculars along with both the standard and "upgraded" straps from all three. The OpTech Classic strap is better and more versatile for actual use than any of these "Alpha" straps by far. I have replaced all my OEM straps with the appropriate OpTech version except for those straps which are designed to work with both the case and the bin. The Classic is all you need for anything in the 30 mm range up to smaller lighter 42mm. For heavier 42mm and up to 50mm, the Super Classic is better suited.
Have used Op/Tech straps for years and have always been very satisfied with the quality and usability of the products.
Very impressive. We use the interchangeable colored harness
to I.D. camera capabilities in the field. Very helpful.
Carrying a Canon 5DmkII with a EF 70-200/2.8 L IS USM II for hours with the original strap is a pain compared to the OP/TECH USA Classic Strap. Not only does the strap ease the pressure on neck or shoulder but it also stays in place on the shoulder better than the original strap. I recommend anyone that uses DSLRs with pro grade lenses to buy this kind of strap! Once you've tried it you will never use the original straps again!
I use this strap with my Nikon D5000.
I love this strap except for the quick release clips. When holding my kids and my camera, they play with the clips and once, my son unclipped one and the camera fell. If there was a no-clip version, the strap would be ideal.
The shoulder strap is very comfortable with just the right amount of stretch. The strap is the right length for me to carry across my body and still be able to pull the camera to my eye to take a picture.
As a result of the dropped camera issue above, I'm considering changing to the Super Classic Strap Bino Option.
