Peak Design Slide Lite Review

     The cool people over at Peak Design were nice enough to send me the Slide Lite Camera Strap to review! I have been using it for a little over a month now so I figured it would be a good time to share my thoughts.

     The Slide Lite is designed specifically for mirrorless cameras and is quite versatile. The Slide Lite features the Peak Design Anchor Link quick connector system which allows you to change the setup easily depending on how you prefer to wear it. It also has quick adjusters that allow you to change the length from 39" to 54" in no time at all. That's my favorite feature! You have the option to hook your quick connectors to the sides of your camera and they supply an Arca Plate that you can add a quick connector to and anchor from the bottom of the camera. By doing this you have the ability to switch between a neck strap, sling, or shoulder strap within seconds!

     The addition of the Arca plate is very beneficial in comparison to straps that anchor directly to the bottom of the camera. By using the Arca plate you can still use the camera on a tripod without removing the strap. Everything about the Slide Lite is quick, easy, and functional. I personally prefer to wear my camera in the sling position and if you have it adjusted in the right position your camera will lay calmly on the small of your back without bouncing as you walk.

     All of the components of the strap seem strong and well made. They say that is can actually support up to 200 lbs. The Slide Lite is the most versatile strap that I have used and is very comfortable to wear around all day. It's priced at $49.95 and I feel that it is well worth the money if you are looking for a versatile strap. As always if you have any questions or comments leave them below and I will be sure to answer.
