My Decision between the Crumpler's Industry vs Convenient Disgrace

I searched through the forum and reviews on Amazon (which is where I ordered) along with other online stores-

It seemed the consensus was that both straps are 'basically' the same strap plus the quick release buckles (convenient disgrace).

That is NOT the only difference. If you carefully look at pictures online, it seems that both straps are the same width and just only buckles or if you may not need them?

I bought both straps so I could see them in person so I could decide.

You can obviously notice the differences between each strap. IMHO- The wider strap would certainly hold extra weight such my 100-400L or any bigger lenses. It's all common sense, IMO.

The quick release is a double step buckle and I think it would be difficult to release it with 1 hand (by accident). You can notice the single button on the side of the buckle.

I think the Industry Disgrace would be a great strap for much lighter camera but I think the Convenient Disgrace is much better in my case. I basically don't need a complete strap on my camera while I have it sitting on my desk.

I will eventually buy an extra set of buckles for the convenience disgrace for my EOS film 35mm (which I rarely use).

There we go and the Industry Disgrace is on its way back to Amazon since I never attached it to my camera. :)

Thanks for posting this nice evaluation. I am trying to decide between the two, but leaning towards the Convenient Disgrace for the reasons you give.

Anytime! I originally planned on the Industry Disgrace since I was skeptical on the buckles on the Convenient Disgrace or how sturdy they are since I definitely don't want to drop my camera. The buckles are pretty heavy duty and I'm not worried anymore. :)

I bought it on Prime Amazon @ $45. I honestly can't compare it with the Black Rapids since I was considering those as well. I decided that I would prefer to keep my tripod mount free. I also thought there would be a risk if I accidentally bang the top of the camera with that setup. Plus, I wouldn't be able to stand up the camera with some lenses. I usually keep my 17-40 or 50mm attached at home and I set it down fairly often.

ok. i do have the blackrapid slim sport and was looking at other options.. i like the sling style, and i have banged the camera around a little from it being on the side, but not big of a deal.

it really beats the neck strap for me.

Cool! Hints placed, but if one does not show up under the Christmas tree, I place my order on 12/26. $45.00 at B&H a small price to pay for a quality strap.

I usually carry my camera like a messenger bag. When I use my 100-400L, I have to hold it like a football so people wont run into me with a giant lens poking out. haha

Ya, agreed. I've always used the stock canon straps. Not sure why I haven't bothered until now.

Just received my Crumpler Convenient Disgrace strap. Have not had a chance to do a complete test drive, but it is much more more comfortable at the outset from the standard OEM strap. Construction is quality and I like the release capability. I should have gotten one eons ago.

I'm the other way around... I returned the Convenient Disgrace and I'm keeping the Industry Disgrace, as it's more simpler and smaller. Will buy another one for my 2nd D800. What turned me off is the extra wide profile of the Convenient disgrace.. it feels bulky and takes up a lot of space in the bag.


Skill is very important but a fully charged battery is very very important :lol:

Few years back I got me a Crumpler Singapoore Sling. LOVE IT. Now when i see what Crumpler is making these days I wish i was smarter and gotten 2 instead of just one.

New ones look pale in comparison to old.
