    The RS-5 is a sling strap with a comfortably wide shoulder pad, although it really does lack the softness and the elasticity of 
the Matin sling.

    The strap is fixed to the camera with a chunky metal clip and tripod mount screw, providing simple yet secure attachment.

    Extra features include a storage panel, containing a convenient flip-top pouch and a concealed zip pocket beneath.

    A third zipped compartment atop the shoulder pad itself is less useful, because anything larger than a memory card can be felt through the shoulder padding.

    Our verdict

    Pros… Comfortably wide shoulder pad with chunky metal clip and tripod mount screw
    Cons… It really does lack the softness and the elasticity of the Matin sling

    Score: 4/5
