Can't find a basic strap

I am desperately looking for a basic strap. Something along the lines of the original strap on the Rebel but without the logo and in plain black. Ideally it should be a little longer but it shouldn't be too much wider.

Here comes the difficult part, the seller needs to offer international shipping. I just haven't been able to find a decent strap for cheap here in South Africa...

Both Tamrac and Op Tech make straps similar in size to the Canon with the bonus of quick detachment. Most major USA sellers stock them.

+1 for both of these brands. They have a variety of configurations, textures - neoprene, rubber texture, etc. - and some nice disconnect features. They're a good value for the money and perform as advertised.

Luma Labs Cinch is a great product. I used it with my 7D+grip + 70-200 all day without having a strain in my back or shoulder. Though its pricey but worth it.

Another vote for the Luma Labs Cinch. Like nub4sh, I use a membrane connector from them so I can use my quick release tripod plate mounted on the bottom of the camera and my 70-300L. I have also adapted some brass swivel type hooks normally used for marine applications to fashion a DIY quick release so I can take the Cinch off when I'm using a tripod. Though they are metal, they are very smooth and don't nick up the camera.

I really like the chinch. Very expensive so will have to sleep over it if it is really worth it!

The wapiti strap is super durable, very low profile and can be ordered in any length. I love mine!

Check it out at wapitistraps.com

Has anyone tried using the cinch with the membrane connector? http://luma-labs.com/products/m-connect (external link)

EDIT: Just saw your reply:

Do you by any chance have any photos? Does the cinch work well with the membrane connector?

Basic old school; the Domke Gripper strap.

I've used those for years, and like them. I've tried a Think Tank strap--advantage? It's sticky on both sides, unlike the Domke which is sticky on one. (That's an advantage for Domke if the strap rests on bare skin, like a t-shirt with a low neck.)

I intend to try a Wapiti strap too.

I've used a Black Rapid strap for about a year; not using it now. I don't like their carabiner. The BR strap is very comfortable, and I like the way that the camera is suspended. When I find an improved 'biner, I'll do that...

And Ken Rockwell recommends a basic Leica strap on his site. Surprise! In the US it's only about $49.

For some news pros this is the best strap in the world--not the best looking, just the best working--will not slip off a shoulder, distribute weight nicely if hung around neck. They ship internationally.

Sorry for raiding your thread OP, but i am also in need of a better strap..

Just wondering who has the black rapid straps or any shoulder straps for your dslr.. Wondering if they are really good? Doesn't it bother you walking around with the camera onyour side? Like when you walk, do you just leave it there to 'hang' on your side or do you still tend to somewhat hold the camera while it is there on your side? Also, is it safe to have a speedlight hanging upside down with the camera?

Also, do you guys have any other recommendations for other straps? Is a 'better' neck strap much easier than the shoulder straps
