Thanks to this thread I've also picked up a Gordy strap. I've been using my G12 without a strap since I bought it and have always been kinda nervous, but couldn't find one that would be delivered to Australia.

The Gordy strap looks exactly like the kind of thing I've been looking for.

Lint-Proofed My G12

Got my G12 back from Canon today, with a new lens assembly (the original's lens gears had been jammed by pocket lint that got in around the base of the lens).

Took off the protective ring that covers the bayonet mount for adapters and put it face down on an old lens cleaning cloth which happened to be red in color.

Traced the inner diameter of the ring onto the cloth with a pen.

With a scissors, cut a smaller circle about 1/8 of an inch (~3mm) inside the circle I had drawn, and a larger circle the same distance outside the circle I had drawn.

Laid the red cloth gasket I had just made onto the camera around the base of the lens.

Applied a glue stick to the camera-side of the lip of the protective ring that circles the lens and lays on the surface now covered with the red gasket.

Bayoneted the ring back onto the camera on top of the red cloth gasket, with a little cloth snug around the base of the lens.

The gap around the base of the lens is now occupied by a red cloth gasket that doesn't interfere with the lens moving in and out but does block lint from entering the camera - and marks mine as the first G12-L: after all, it has environmental sealing and a red ring around the lens!

On my G7/G9 I always had one of these...Neoprene wrist strap...very comfortable and secure, yet cheap...

(not this exact one, I got one locally one on eBay...but here's a pic for reference)

I made one from an old neck strap. If the strap had been a little longer I would have had two :)

Canon's ws-20 (made for video cameras) has served me well

I purchased the WS-20 for my G12 and when it arrived I was surprized its large size and long strap. Not quite satisfied I discovered that there is another version of this strap with the same model number. I found it on Ebay from Ritz Camera. I like it a lot more. The securing strap is not near as long allowing the large hoop to be mounted closer to the body with less excess. The strap has a nice glove leather with a nice gold Canon logo, not that large lettering painted to the handle and a metal D ring that the securing strap attaches to that can slide side to side allowing a little more flexibility. The handle hoop is not as large also. The cloth material is softer and large weave rather than tight and stiff like the other.

I dont know which model is the old model but I sure like this one better.

I made a wrist strap out of the neck strap that came with the G12.

I made my own wrist strap with 550 Paracord and a BlackRapid FastenR-2. It's fully adjustable with a sliding celtic button know to adjust the tightness on my wrist.

There are lots of straps available that will work on the G11/G12. I'm using a Gordie's strap on my G11. Here's their link with lots of choices;

I got a Gordy's for my G12 and the split ring to too fat or too large and the ring is jammed in the slot and not free to move (except slide back and forth on the rail). Is this also your experience?

My Gordy's strap has the string and not the split ring, sorry. You might contact Gordy again to see if he has any suggestions.
