I dunno, maybe I'm just cheap but I've never felt the need to spend more money on something that comes free in the box with the camera. And quite honestly I don't find the Canon straps to be uncomfortable (I shoot with 2 1D series bodies so I'm carrying a fair amount of weight around.)

As for advertising "STEAL ME": one of my bodies is usually attached to a 500 f/4 and the other to a 70-200 f/2.8, I think those big white lenses and 1D bodies say it much louder than a camera strap.

having never tried an aftermarket strap there's no way of knowing then? the optech strap is much more comforatable than the OEM canon strap and were talking 20 bucks which in this hobby is really nothing :D.

Was this really a serious question? :rolleyes:

Just wash the bl**dy thing in warm soapy water - if it shrinks/stretches/chan​ges colour/explodes etc. buy a new one! :lol:

Just be sure to keep the bright red as visible as possible. And of course, keep the big CANON advertising clear. I don't get those guys with short straps around their necks either...

I wear a shirt when I'm shooting so the strap stays pretty clean. :)

This has got to be the dumbest thread ever. Of course you can wash it -- they're fabric and nylon and maybe some pleather depending on which one. Just maybe not the drier. Whats next, hair spray tips for ink stains?

If it's not the dumbest, it must be a strong contender.

Never washed mine. I've only used it for a few days before my UpStrap came in.

What's STFU? (I'm not sure that I understand the rest of the post either).

"Shut The F**k Up"

You have some on here saying that a strap says "steal me" just because of the text on it ......but they don't even take into consideration that there are thousands of dollars hanging from it. (i.e. big camera and big lens).
..... kinda silly.

..... and here in the states, the south at least, "pink" is associated with femininity.

Hope that clears things up for ya and I didnt offend anyone. Just trying to add some humor.
