Shock-Absorbing Camera Strap

Skooba Design has added a collection of camera/binocular straps to its patent-pending Superbungee Shoulder Strap line. Like the original Superbungee Bag Strap, the camera/binocular version features what the company calls a "sport-tuned suspension system," consisting of a high-density, floating bungee cord ring which acts as a shock absorber, minimizing carrying discomfort and perceived weight. On the reverse (wearer) side of the shoulder pad is a flexible strip of individual, air-filled cells. The cells add to the shock absorption and comfort, and are covered in a friction laminate to help prevent slipping.

The strap is designed to fit any current camera or binocular with standard, 3/8"/11mm strap slots, or it can be threaded to the split keyring-type connectors on older cameras. Strap length has a nominal overall length adjustment range of 21-45 inches, and is equally well-suited for carrying around the neck or over the shoulder.

The Superbungee Shoulder Strap is available in 5 different color combinations, at a suggested retail price of $19.95. The original Superbungee Bag strap--a larger version designed as an upgrade to standard straps found on laptop/photo bags, sports duffels, luggage and other carrying cases--is available in 6 color combinations at $25.95.
