Peak Design Slide Lite Camera Strap

The Peak Design Slide Lite Camera Strap (designed for more lightweight and mirrorless cameras)  along with its sister the Peak Design Slide (for heavier DSLR cameras) are, some would say, anomalies. While they have a straightforward design and are very easy to use, they are also among the most versatile and feature-packed sling straps on the market. These are straps for photographers looking for something that’s low-profile, robust, and highly versatile.

The Slide Lite features a specially engineered nylon webbing strap that’s padded internally, as opposed to most straps that feature a shoulder pad. The nylon strap is coated on one side (the side that comes in contact with your shoulder or neck) with a gripping finish to help keep the strap in place and smooth on the other side, to help the camera slide into shooting position. Additionally, the strap has quick adjusters to easily adjust its length as well as dictate your camera’s range of motion even while you are wearing it. In practice, however, because there is no underarm stabilizing strap, often when the camera is slid up for photographing the shoulder strap will slip behind and will need to be readjusted when you resume walking. This is common with sling straps.

All that said, the main highlight of the Slide Lite is its Anchor Link system that allows you to carry your camera securely in a number of different ways. It can connect to your camera at three different points giving some extra security and making it easy to move the strap from being carried sling style to around the neck. Ideal for photographers who employ a variety of shooting styles.

The Slide Lite is compact and lightweight, but it punches way above its weight when it comes to versatility.
