This strap has been a labor of love. Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve worked on a design to keep a camera from swinging all over the place while riding or hiking while also enabling quick and easy one hand operation to swing the camera back and forth. Those with a keen eye may have seen some leaks as we’ve eluded to this design over that time. My friend and collaborator, Randall and I have finally launched the new Speed holster Strap over on his site: MettleCycling.com Head over and check them out!
The Speed Holster Strap focuses on weight (weighs a few ounces) and a low profile, perfect for those that like to blend riding and photography. Meant to carry a small to mid size system camera (or compact) via the quick release clip and heavy duty, 170b split ring attached to the camera. Offered in two sizes, M/L for those riders up to about 5’10” and then and XL for us gangly monsters. The holster piece comes across your chest and under your opposite arm to keep the camera from swinging while riding or hiking around and will relatively stay put when put back.
These are a very labor intensive product, so we’re only able to do small runs at a time. We’ll see how these are received and then try to continue to keep up with any demand. Head over to MettleCycling.com and grab one while they’re still around.
Thanks to all who’ve helped us prototype these, and to Randall for getting these out to the community. Tag us with #trpblography and #onmymettle so we can see and share your shots and of course, we’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences with us via the socials: find me on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Instagram.
