Peak Designs

Peak Design Slide
Save 20%: Peak Design’s Slide camera strap features a seat belt-like construction that’s both comfortable and supportive and is easily adjustable thanks to a set of slide buckles. The quick-release anchor links that attach the strap to your camera are a considered addition, too.
