Magnets in Camera Straps can be a Problem

Here’s an odd question from a caller.   Do BosStraps use any magnets in the strap?    It turns out the caller was trying to use a competitor’s strap that incorporated a magnetic latch to close a small pocket attached to the strap.  Every time he put the strap on, he experienced issues related to his surgical implant.  Magnets in Camera Straps can be a Problem for Some Photographers.

I did some research on this and found that magnets in straps can affect pacemakers and defibrillators when in the proximity of the magnetic field.   Here’s a link to the article that talks about the problem of magnetic fields and implants: Read Now.
