I have tried many straps.

OpTechs are very comfy, but too short. I can never trust my equipment with those small plastic quick release myself. I also have my LCD scractch by those quick release buckles. I think it happened when I stuffed them into camera bag.

PacSafe is long enough. Quick release is metal, so more reliable. There is also a sleeves to cover the quick release, so no chance of scratching anything else. The only issue is that it is not any more comfortable, if not less, than the Canon one.

R-strap. Good idea, poor execution. I found the screw come loose twice. Lucky I caught it before it came completely undo. I can NOT recommand especially for $50.

Now, I am going back to the Canon one. If Optech make their strap longer and without quick release, it would be my ideal strap.

I'm pretty sure that Optech makes a longer version of the Super Classic without quick release-- I think they call it the binocular version (or something like that) and there is a thread or two around here about the long strap.

Op-Tech does make the long strap, I have a few of them but can't recall the model. Got them on B&H's site. I wear my camera across my chest and the camera falls at my upper hip area. This way I can pull it up to my eye fairly quickly and it's comfortable to wear, without any worry about it slipping off my shoulder.

Did you remember to put the neoprene pad under it? ;) Just kidding, but we find it more comfortable when wearing it in the typical over the neck style. But, I never carry like that because the camera bumps me all day long when I carry it in front.

My wife and I wear the Pacsafe across the chest. Carrying it like that it's not constantly bumping and it's comfortable enough for all day trips to the zoo (85 degrees!) with the 24-70L attached.

The R-Strap screw came loose???? Was the locking nut tightened? I can't imagine this happening and I use the R-strap in cameras and into L-plates. The lock screw really does its job well!

The pacsafe distributes the weight of a camera better than the R-strap. I like both personally.

Hopefully you found the extensions but if not, I think these should work:
