Like the adjustable length, so you can have the camera at chest level or on your hip when using a long lens plus the ability to quickly remove the strap when using a tripod.
The Anchor Link quick-connectors are colour coded, they turn yellow then red when frayed to avoid 'incidents'.......
I also use a Peak design. There are a lot of things I like about it, such as the connectors, adjustable length, build quality and security. However I am not convinced that I am as comfortable with it, as other people appear to be with other types of shoulder slings. I feel it should have a shoulder pad of some sort, rather than just strap. I probably don't help this by almost always using it with a rucksack on. I do spend my whole time walking around checking the tripod mount attaching the strap to the lens mount.
Thanks for your tips and opinions :thumb: I'm hoping to pay a trip to Wex this weekend and take a look there

I use a Joby Sling strap attached to the tripod mount on my 100-400 but also have a Joby tether that I thread through one of the standard strap mounts on the camera & then attach to a separate point on the sling as a safety line.

I did have the swivel on the sling jam once before getting the tether causing the tripod mount to unscrew. My camera with 24-105 took a rapid exit toward the ground but luckily my foot was in the right place at the right time to take the impact. Slightly bruised foot but camera & lens undamaged.
