    Yes, it fits the full sized Arca-Swiss mount. I opted for the combination Arca-Swiss/Manfrotto, so it works on both my tripods, but the standard clip mounts just to Arca Swiss in any direction. It will not work on the smaller MeFoto DayTrip, which has a mini-mount.

    Thanks for the clarification Jake. I'm not sure if I need one of these straps, but I haven't bought anything much recently so I'm developing an itch and it does look interesting Maybe I should hold out and get a macro lens for my birthday then I won't need to borrow my wife's.
    Kind regards

    To be honest, Geoff, I prefer the Capture Clip to the Yeti strap provided I'm not shooting with a long lens. The 24-120mm is still small enough that it's not too much on the clip, though that's on a D600 and not the D800. That might get a little heavy on a belt - don't know, need to check it out. The funny thing is that while the other people who saw it on the Photowalk thought it would be "too slow" for getting at the camera quickly, I find that developing a technique to press the release button with my little finger while pulling it off in a "ready to go" position was fairly easy.

    My Nikon's aren't as heavy as yours I don't think, but it's made of metal so it should hold yours without issue I would think. But I'll let you know my friend what I think about the system in how well it works with my D300 and D90, to hopefully help give you a better idea if it would work for you!

    Re: Double camera carry?

    OK update on the Spider double holster I bought! It arrived today and after adjusting it to fit me and installing the second holster, it seem to work very well with my D300 and D90! I have no doubt it can handle much heavier Nikon's with lenses without risk of the system breaking! The holster connections/mounts are metal and seem to be extremely strong with a stiff protector flap for the camera to lay against! The is much much less swinging of the camera than the black rapid strap allows, so I have less worry about my camera swinging into something!
    The double carry setup does make the need for care in narrow places for sure, but so did my strap setup! I don't feel as much need to have a hand on my camera all the time when it seems to stay in place without the swinging of my strap!

    Downsides are the plates you mount to your tripod mount. It tends to make it so the cameras don't fit as well in my case and backpack. Other than that, I have no real complaints so far!

    Hope this helps you @gqtuazon my friend!

    Re: Double camera carry?

    There is one thing about the spider holsters that I do have a worry about now that I bought the 80-400mm. There is no way that I can see to give the lens extra support, and that lens is going to be carried a lot. So I'm actually thinking of trading my double spider holster off for something I can use more.
    The holsters are great really, taking the weight off your neck and back, and are much more stable with less movement. But I don't tend to sell things. Trading is much more my speed!

    If anybody is interested I'd be glad to take a few photos of it, and talk trades if you have something I can use! It has hardly been used to be honest. I got sidetracked and forgot I had it until today! Lol
