Once the Wandrd Wrist Strap is attached to your camera and slid over your hand, your camera is safe from an accidental drop. If you do let go of your camera for some reason, the strap leaves it dangling from your wrist. In some cases, for example with a heavy camera or a sudden, forceful drop, the strap will cinch in around your wrist. Sometimes it doesn’t, which is why I suggest tightening the strap a little when you first put it on.
While using a wrist strap means that you have to carry the weight of the camera and lens in your hand rather than over your shoulder or across your body, you’re a little more ready for action. And, when you lift the camera to your eye, you won’t find the Wandrd Wrist strap snagging or getting in the way.
Wandrd has used a metal clip to secure the Wrist Strap loop and although the main part is strong, if you yank the camera or strap in the right direction, you can get the loop out of the clip. It’s unlikely that a thief would be able to do this, especially if you are holding the camera, but it’s something to bear in mind.
The exterior of the main section of the strap’s webbing is reinforced, which makes it feel a bit stiff, but it’s not uncomfortable. It also means that the webbing won’t roll up to form a thinner band that is less comfortable on your wrist and it stays flat so it will feed through the plastic cinch buckle.
