BOOMR - The Most Comfortable Camera Strap EVER!

$56,841

1,462

Inspired by the popular bungee cord rifle slings used in the military we have designed the patent-pending BOOMR to be the most comfortable camera strap/sling on the market!

Bungee cords are extremely strong and durable and incorporated into the design of BOOMR to act as shock absorbers which significantly decrease the weight load of carrying a camera around your neck or shoulders.

BOOMR was designed to be worn any way you normally carry your camera. It can be worn comfortably as a 

  • neck strap
  • cross-body sling 
  • over the shoulder.

I've always been interested in photography but never had the time to actually try to learn. Finally I decided I would purchase a decent camera and learn a bit about how to use it. After purchasing a decent SLR I found it extremely uncomfortable carrying it around my neck or across my body after more than a few minutes. I found with every step I took while wearing my camera the degree of comfort decreased as it was exactly like carrying around a heavy dumbbell dangling around my neck. I became obsessed with trying to find a solution to this issue and realized I need some way of relieving the pressure exerted...some sort of shock absorber. I thought about some kind of design incorporating rubber and with some research found that it is common practice among soldiers to use bungee slings for their heavy rifles which inspired the BOOMR camera strap design. 

Risks and challenges

As they say, "This is not our first rodeo". We've had five successfully funded Kickstarter campaigns with the promised rewards for four of them delivered before the estimated delivery date.

Although this is our first photography related product, we are using a factory with whom we have worked with several times prior to this project for survival-related textile products. We have full confidence in this factory and will continue to do the best we can to get the rewards for this campaign fulfilled before the estimated date as we always attempt to do.

As for the fulfillment, we started our company as a team of two so whereas fulfilling the rewards for our initial campaigns proved quite challenging to accomplish in a timely fashion, we now have a large warehouse with a flexible fulfillment team ranging from 6-13 people depending on our shipping needs.

Thanks for your continued support and we'll continue to do our best to bring you innovative and high quality products!
