The Speed sling strap has been a mainstay for me, but over the last year, I’ve gotten feedback that an adjustable version would be something of interest to many. Well, I sourced a lightweight, but sturdy cam lock buckle to fit the strap material, re-designed how I was splicing the clasp on, and locking the strap, and boom. New Speed 2.
Weighing in at a mere 2.2 ounces, and utilizing the same high strength materials, stainless steel quick release clasp and proprietary hand built design, the new Speed 2 sling strap is perfect for mirrorless and compact cameras, for on the go photographers.
Available in Blue/White, Yellow/Gray, Orange/Gray, Red/White, Black/White and a new Solid Black with 3M® reflective tracer, the new Speed 2 is ready to go over at NautiStraps.com now. The straps can adjust from 16″-29″ (the original Speed sling strap was a fixed 25″) and are designed to wear across your body as a sling, attaching to the camera via a quick release spring clasp and 170lb test split ring (included). I like being able to switch between a Speed sling, and other straps using the quick release clasp. Especially handy when wanting to get straps out of the way on the tripod.
Available now for $48 including delivery (in the US), and for blog readers you can get a 15% discount for the next week (discount runs through Sunday, February 12th) using code “SPEED2” at checkout, these guys are ready to rock. As always, shipping via the US Postal Service is free within the US, and is a flat $10 rate for anywhere outside of the US.
Thanks for all of the support over the last year as I’ve been working on all of these straps. It means a lot, and I greatly appreciate the feedback and conversations I’ve had with many of you guys over this time.
I hope everyone is well. Connect with me via Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Instagram.
