I used and reviewed majority of the straps on the market. BlackRapid, CustomSLR, CarrySpeed, Luma and Peak Design.

I love my Peak Design Slide strap - http://www.1kindphotog​raphy.com …e-camera-sling-strap.html (external link) (10% off coupon code available)

Second place is a tie between Luma and CustomSLR (you can read the reviews at http://www.1kindphotog​raphy.com/p/reviews_2.​html#straps (external link).

Carryspeed Pro all day long. It has a WIDE soft comfortable shoulder strap and the swivel ball with multiple locations is great. The current model is the best yet. Look for as many youtube videos as you can find. I have used it for 3 years now.

Unfortunately, you can't get it in the states anymore. The reason is because BlackRapid sued them. CS went to court to fight it but lost not because of patent infringement but because they couldn't afford the court/lawyer fees anymore.

The parent company (Millionway International) of CarrySpeed sold it off to an international company who now handles it. You'll still see CS products floating around that are probably the old versions. Otherwise, they're all shipped from overseas.

I also use Peak Design Slide but immediately hated it because it had no padding. My previous favorite was UpStrap, man I loved that non-slip padding. Anyway, I bought one of these which fits perfectly on the Slide. After four days of lugging around a 6D + 70-200mm f/2.8 II at a recent music festival I'm happy to say, this setup is the schnizzle.

The strap has padding. Just not as thick as what other straps has to offer. The padding is inside the nylon webbing. If you go and fold the strap, its stiffer than the rest of the strap

You can see the indent/bulge from the padding on the strap on the left. The strap on the right is the SlideLITE. It's smaller in width and no padding as it is meant for mirrorless or smaller cameras.

Amazon has them.

As stated, its old stock or from international sellers. If you look at the listings, they are all coming from Korea or Hong Kong. Those that are "fulfilled by Amazon Warehouse", the seller providing it is from a different country.

Sorry 1KIND, but I don't quite consider that padding. The $12 add on that I linked to worked well.

No problem. Different people have different takes on padding. For you, what Peak Design provides is not adequate enough for you. But if you found a solution that works for you, even better.

dude! Spider Holsters! I use the Spider Pro Dual. But you can get it in a single. Talk about comfort! AND the camera doesn't swing when you move!

I have the BR Double harness but it is not fun to walk around in.

Regardless, I bought 2 more this week and they were here in 2 days, free shipping, current production strap, F-2 folding mount. That's pretty fast if they are coming from Asia.

Prime? If so, Amazon has them stocked in their warehouse that is why you got them so quick especially with free shipping and 2 days.
