Free your shoulder from uncomfortable straps. The ergonomic Split Strap maximizes comfort and works on a variety of applications.

Thank you for stopping by! The Split Strap project was successfully funded on Kickstarter. Come visit us at CustomSLR.com to check out our latest news, updates and products.

Hello there! Thank you for stopping by our project. With your support, we hope to distribute a better carrying experience to as many people possible worldwide and even create a new standard in carrying strap comfort!

We were inspired to improve poorly designed straps that fail to address the basic anatomical needs of our bodies. Most straps are uncomfortable since they do not distribute weight effectively.

Split Strap is our patent pending solution to this conundrum. We engineered the Split Strap concept from the ground up while integrating as many favorable features as possible by using data we collected from research on the human anatomy.

The Split Strap is designed and developed with maximum ergonomics and comfort in mind.

After studying how straps interact with the structures of the shoulder, neck, and back, we discovered that the planar/flat profiled nature of existing straps did not contour to the body well causing unequal weight/force distribution, discomfort and possible strain.

Our breakthrough design utilizes a split in the strap which creates multiple points where the strap could sit and conform to the body; thus, distributing the weight evenly and increasing comfort. The split also promotes cooling by venting heat away.

On the backside of the strap, we integrated sticky silicone printed logos that reduce annoying slippage.

The rotating quick release buckle reduces strap tension by pivoting with the movements of the user, which decreases chaffing and increases slack to facilitate further flexibility and comfort.

We hope to have the Split Straps for the various applications available by mid-March. The Kickstarter pre-order prices include shipping in the US and is lower than the expected retail price.

Thank you for your support!

How do I pre-order more than 1 strap? If you would like to order more than one strap simply choose a pledging option and add the extra amount. For example, if you want one camera strap and one arm sling, the total will be $22 + $30 for a total pledge amount of $52. All straps will come complete. So if you order two you will be receiving two complete straps (not just additional attachments).

I don't live in the US. How do I add additional shipping? The extra shipping fees are $3 for Canada and $8 for International - simply add this amount to your pledge amount. _________________________________________
