Carry Speed FS-Pro.

Yeah buddy....I love my FS-Pro. Comfy, works great, and arcs swiss all in one...best $$$ spent on an accessory.

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.

Thanks for info, didn't know about the Think tank strap, its a bit like the Domke gripper strap but without swivel quick release.

I'm using the strap that came with my bessa R, its simple and tough....

I was looking for the Optech classic loop strap with the little bumps underneath, but seems like its phased out, replaced by one with non-skid material. A bit bulky. Hope Optech makes a 1" version for smaller cameras.

Crumpled industry disgrace. Have been using it for a few years and I love it so I haven't tried anything else. But I might try something different but I'm not sure.

+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 have a Herringbone hand strap installed as well. I think the Markins might be a bit nicer, at least from the photos I've seen but the Herringbone is decent quality at a pretty inexpensive price.

I just ordered a second Op/Tech Pro Strap and Sling Adapter. I also use 1/2 of an Op/Tech Extension Set (each piece is identical) on each of my Straps. It gives me just the right length for it to hang low by my side.

Op/Tech Utility Strap. Works great. Strong, well built. Dirt cheap at $22.

+1 on the fs-pro. I avoid straps when possible (exception herringbone), but for a walk around, the carryspeed works well, and not too cumbersome.

I don't use them. They just get in the way. Particularly irritating as I almost invariably use a tripod.

I bought a bunch of TT straps reading this forum and i'm about to take them all off again but i rarely use a tripod too...lol

Yeah they're a nuisance without one too.

i think I might get one of these and sell my Black Rapid. The fact that the arca swiss tripod plate is integrated into the connection seals the deal.

do you use L bracket? if you use blackrapid, and already have an arca plate, you can get a kirk clamp to fix your issues:
