Kata logo. PRESS RELEASE: Kata Introduces the Gecko Shoulder Strap (GSS)

New Strap Boasts Unprecedented Level of Carrying Comfort and Ergonomics.

Las Vegas, NV (January 31, 2008) - In continuing a tradition of creating comfortable carrying solutions for photographers of all kinds, Kata is proud to introduce the Gecko Shoulder Strap (part # KT-VG-604-DH). The Gecko Shoulder Strap is a comfortable, lightweight and ergonomic carrying solution which ensures secure positioning for the photographer on the go.

Life doesn't stand still and no one knows this more than a photographer. As photographers find themselves increasingly mobile in an effort to catch the perfect shot, the need for comfortable and secure carrying of equipment grows. The GSS is a combination of material that is durable yet lightweight and comfortable. Tested at carrying loads of up to 44 lbs, the GSS is up to the task of carrying photographic gear on the run. With a technically advanced shoulder pad made up of high-tech, durable foam, photographers will hardly notice the weight.

The unique shape of the shoulder pad fits the grade of your shoulder to provide the optimal ergonomic carrying angle for your camera bag. Additional security is provided by the unique suction-shaped grips that naturally hold and align the undercarriage of the strap to the shoulder to prevent slipping. Just like the fingers of its famous namesake, these suction-shaped grips allow the Gecko Shoulder Strap to remain secure on your shoulder no matter what the shooting situation may be. Additional comfort is provided by integrated aeration slots that allow air to circulate between the strap and your shoulder to keep you cool.

Street Price: $14.00

The Gecko Shoulder Strap will be available through Bogen Imaging dealers. For additional product information and to locate a Kata dealer, please visit www.bogenimaging.us
