Custom SLR Glide Strap most of the time (with the C-Loop). Nice to be able to quickly detach from the strap as needed.

From one of these threads; if I understood correctly it said instead of mounting on a gripped body at rear right and bottom, to mount rear left and bottom. I tried it and found it much more comfortable. The sling and both attachments points tend to stay away from the corners where the shutter controls are. The entire Grip is very free to grab as it hangs beside me. Loving the Op/Tech even more now!

Domke Gripper, Green Canon swivel version, on my 7D and tan non-swivel version on my x100. Thinking of changing the tan to the swivel version. I tried many different straps and setups and eventually opted for something simple, well-made, and inexpensive.

I'm going to pick up the non-swivel version for my EOS M. Love the look of them and don't scream steal my camera.

It's a great strap. Simple and discrete. I love the non-swivel one on my x100 so I think it'll be great on your M.

Crumpler Industry Disgrace I picked up before a long trip a few years back. Love it in use; but it's a little bulky to pack with the camera.

I won a Capture Camera Clip v2; when it gets here (anyday I hope) I plan on trying that + a herribone as a more portable solution. (6d+50L being the standard, hoping it's light enough on belt)

I only saw a little love for the Black Rapid straps in this thread so I'm tossing in my vote. I first got an RS-5 (the one with storage flap) and thought I would love the storage, turns out I just disliked the bulk. So I got an RS-7 and absolutely love it. I carry cross the body, and can carry gripped 5d3 with my heaviest lens for hours and not feel fatigue from it.

My previous strap was a op/tech pro loop, though it was comfy I never really liked how bulky it was. Plus in the warmer months that huge piece of neoprene around my neck was just too hot.

My current strap is a think tank v2 which is great so far. It is 1" in width with a real sturdy contruction(uses almost no space in my camera bag), is super grippy, and lastly its long enough to use as a sling when i feel like. Only thing is I wished it had some sort of quick release.

Probably try out the peak design loop and cuff soon as it has all the things I like about the think tank v2 with added quick release.

+1. Except I use the Cinch 2 + Markins Hand Strap (sometimes at the same time). I'm starting to really like my camera "nude" though.

I usually don't use one but I reach for my black rapid rs7 when I'm out and about in need of a strap.
