Hands down... PhatStrap.

I ordered this almost two years ago and absolutely LOVE it. The stock strap would burn my neck, scratching and rubbing into it so much. It was my first purchase after receiving my camera. Anyone else had any experience with this strap?

These ones? No, but I use a pac-safe one, as this eliminates the brand name screaming out as you wear it, plus, it cannot be cut through if travelling.

I've looked at the PacSafe stuff (bags and straps) since I will be on a cruise through the Med in September. It starts in Barcelona, with a lot of stops in Italy, both of which have bad reps for pickpockets. I ultimately did not buy a PacSafe bag, but may still look at getting one of their straps for my camera.

Granted, the brand name can be seen on mine, however, the quick release is great and I LOVE the "minky" inside. Makes for a very comfortable day of shooting.

I use the OP/TECH USA Strap. It is very comfortable due to the neoprene padding, and has quick release clips that I like because the strap gets annoying when the camera is on the tripod. It isn't as stylish as the phatstraps, and it is a bit thick around the neck, but that is part of what makes it comfortable.

Wow! Love it :) I bookmarked this site and will definitely be thinking about buying.

@ Osiris: That's good for those who don't want anything too "loud". I like to be different, so mine has a bright orange "minky" interior with an orange/green/ paisly design on a black background. It's just different... but it works for me.

I just like the "personalization" of these...

Nothing wrong with classic black, though. :)

If you look closely, they have other colors, as well as a 'nature' one. I missed it when I ordered or I actually would've went with something else. Still, those phatstraps win the style contest.

That's cool. To each their own. :)

I would be more happy with my strap if the logo was removed... but that's ok...
As for durability factors, it hasn't given me a problem since day one, and I have had it almost 2 years.

Maybe if I need to be more discreet, I will pick up one of the OP/TECH straps.

I can't see being "loud" at a wedding would be appropriate. People should be looking at the Bride and Groom, not my screaming strap. lol

She absolutely loves it. Plan on getting one myself.
