I use the B-Grip B-Glider, works great! http://www.bgrip.com (external link)
With the B-Grip, I can go from my sling strap to my tripod, to my monopod and back to my sling strap in seconds and most of all, it's comfortable.

Do you mean thick in terms of comfort? I'm asking because I'm a huge fan of the Quick Rapid/black rapid systems, which put the camera at waist/hip level and have a very fast draw. Weight goes on the shoulders instead of the neck.

Before the B-Grip, I had a Black Rapid RS-7. The Black Rapid is a nice strap and is comfortable BUT, I almost dropped my camera because of the Black Rapid strap. The strap itself is great but the problem with it is the design, the fastener that attaches the strap to the camera using the tripod mount is the problem. The locking feature for the fastener is a rubber grommet which once it moves a little, it WILL come loose.

Imagine having a couple thousand dollars dangling down by your side and one time you reach down and grip your camera, as you raise the camera up to take a picture, the strap drops from the bottom of the camera. Believe me, my heart stopped! I realized in that second how close I was to disaster. The problem was that the fastener was working loose and I wasn't aware of it. After that, I found myself constantly checking the strap fastener and constantly tightening it. It's not good to be more worried about the fastener attached to your camera than you are your surroundings, it's a massive distraction.

I ended up giving away the Black Rapid strap to a friend who modified it to keep it from loosening but, it was time consuming to remove it and mount the camera to a tripod which was fine for him because he very rarely uses a tripod. For me, going from the Black Rapid strap to the B-Grip was a huge step in the right direction. The peace of mind alone was worth every penny I paid for the B-Grip. Simply knowing that I'm not gonna lose a camera because of a bad design is relief in itself. Great concept but bad design.

My opinion is, get ANY strap that has a positive locking feature when attaching to the camera AND is easily converted from strap to tripod.

Just my opinion and mine alone, hope this helps.

Unfortunately the OP never came back to reply to the question posed, "Why 'thick'?"
So all we have is a bunch of suggestions about possible products, with no additional clues that would point anyone in the direction of 'less suitable' or 'more suitable' for a particular purpose. Kinda like asking "Which tires should I buy?" or "Whick lens should I buy?"...to do WHAT???

So TEN months later, shot in dark suggestions are still being offered (yet I presume OP already purchased one months ago, too!)

My favorite strap was the Tamrac Boomerang strap. Wide & thick where it rests on the shoulder.

Sadly, I believe it's out of production :-(

in all of these suggestions no one mentioned the CPS strap yet people still pay $50 for that basic strap.

I think some of that comes from the "cache" of a strap that says "Canon Professional Services" on it. :-P
