The JJC Quick Release Neck Strap is a no-frills sling, equipped with a thick, wide shoulder pad.

However, the pad feels more like polyester-covered foam than neoprene and, as such, lacks the flexibility and stretchiness of rival straps.

The tripod mounting plate is simple but effective, and attached via a quick-release metal clip for easy separation of the camera from the strap.

A zipped pocket on the shoulder pad provides a home for a memory card, but is too small to hold much else comfortably.

A strap that offers good value for casual photographers.

Our verdict

Pros… No-frills sling with a thick, wide shoulder pad. Good value for casual photographers
Cons
… The zipped pocket on the strap’s shoulder pad is bafflingly small

Score: 3/5
