I use the Pro Loop Strap. The Pro Strap 3/8" is similar to the attachment design of a canon strap

I use an older version of the Utility Strap - Sling http://optechusa.com …/utility-strap-sling.html (external link)

I like having the weight on my shoulder instead of my neck. The quick disconnect is nice since I don't use a strap when I'm at home, only if I go out with my camera. The connectors are also nice if you have multiple configurations (ie bare camera, L-plate, grip, etc) since you can leave a connector on each accessory so its ready to connect to the strap. I have the strap sized so that the camera hangs at the level of my right hand so its easy to grab.

Which strap you should use depends on what lens you attach to the 5D3. I use a 70-200 2.8 on the 5D3 quite often. That combination is just a pain in the neck (pun intended, but true nonetheless) with any strap designed to go around the neck. A shoulder strap works so much better not only because of it takes the weight off the back of your neck, but also because the lens just hangs better when it is hanging down at your side.

If you plan to shoot events, the dual strap works great. When you put a camera on one side like a 5D3 with a 24-70 2.8 and a 7D2 with a 70-200 2.8, it balances out quite nicely. It is actually easier to have two cameras on dual straps than one camera with the exception of the fact that you have to be careful swinging around too fast.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Good point. Just automatically when I think OP/TECH I think neck strap and when I think shoulder/sling strap I think BlackRapid. Therefore I erroneously assumed the OP as looking for a neck strap.
