I'm trying to buy a new camera strap that is thick! Does anyone have any suggestions on brands or types of straps?

Ditto on the Slide.
Just spent past 4 days wearing it with a 70-200 2.8 hanging off it most of the time in 80+ degree heat. No rub rash or fatigue.


I have a photographic memory, just wish I'd remember to take the lens cap off more often! :oops:

Been using the Optech pro loops for many years. Haven't found a reason to switch at any price.

The only daring thing I have done is I recently got the dual harness, like the straps, the Optech dual harness rig seems to work just as well as ones that cost 3 to 5 times as much. A very useful rig for fast dual body work. The bonus is the clips work with all the straps I already have. No changes to the camera or lens straps.

I have used a Crumpler strap for many years and absolutely love it and wouldn't be without it.

I like the Luma Cinch with a RRS clamp.

This though is a sling and not classified as a "strap" per say IMHO?

Peak Design Slide or SlideLite if you have mirrorless, CustomSLR Air Strap, Luma Labs Cinch or Loop.

I reviewed a whole bunch of these straps and more on my site. I also have a discount code on Peak Design products.

Another vote for Peak Design Slide.
Well made, thick strap, just enough padding where you want it and the clip/fastener system is nice.
I walked around all weekend shooting my daughter's softball tournament with a 1D body and 100-400L attached to it and there is no fatigue or discomfort at all.

This is what I use...though I have been using their newer Loop 3 Special Edition lately. The RRS clamp works so well with my L bracket. Easy off and on.. and no dangling strap when I'm set up on my tripod or monopod.

I still love my Cinch 1 because of the pull strap. The Loop 3 Special Edition has the same pull strap.

Tell us why you desire thickness? Perhaps understanding your need, we can make a better recommendation. Is this for a Canon using the normal strap mount, or a camera that uses lug mount?
