alvin: I'm interested on getting a black rapid strap. I'm torn between the R5 and R7. It seems that R5 is much better because of its extra pockets and phone compartment. I'm not sure if it is bulky with all of the extra pockets. R7 it seems is ergonomically designed and compatible with MODS. It is the plastic locking/buckle of the R7 that I'm concerned about. Anyone has any recommendations please.I've got an RS7 - very comfortable. Photo Warehouse stocks them. I didn't want the RS5 as it looked a bit bulky. I was too early, but the recent Sport 2, basically a cut-down Sport, looks good. All their clips are plastic, not sure what you don't like about the RS7 one that isn't the same on the others.
