At first glance, this looks like an outstanding strap that is feature packed, without being too clunky. We'll let you know our full thoughts when we receive ours in the mail!

Custom SLR Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Fund the Air Strap: a Camera Strap That Does More With Less
This lightweight and breathable camera strap provides more comfort and versatility for photographers of every kind, all at an affordable price.

SAN FRANCISCO, California—November 14, 2013—With four successfully funded Kickstarter campaigns under its belt, Custom SLR, a photography accessories company in Silicon Valley, today launched its fifth project: the Air Strap, a camera strap that does more with less. Featuring breathable vents, moisture wicking fabric and a quick-adjust slider, the Air Strap provides more comfort and versatility for any photographer looking to replace the uncomfortable, hard-to-adjust strap that comes with his or her camera.

“Every photographer deserves a comfortable shooting experience,” said Ivan Wong, chief operating officer at Custom SLR. “With the Air Strap, we wanted to create a professional-quality strap that was affordable enough for anyone who uses a camera. We’re excited to deliver a feature-rich strap at a great price point.”

Following the overwhelming success of its patent pending Split Strap, Custom SLR now has a second camera strap to add to its line of innovative photography solutions. The Air Strap features a convenient quick-adjust slider that allows photographers to shorten the strap to keep the camera secure at their side when maneuvering through crowds and tight spaces; when they need to take a photo, they can easily pull the slider to extend the strap. For maximum comfort and flexibility, the Air Strap has cushy neoprene padding with wicking fabric on the top and bottom, and buckles that swivel with each movement. The Air Strap is compatible with most cameras, and with an optional attachment, it can be used with most bags, such as laptop and gym bags.

Starting today, the Air Strap will be made available first to backers who fund the project during its 44day campaign, which ends on Dec. 27, 2013. For more details, visit the Custom SLR Air Strap Kickstarter page:
