Show me your neck straps.

Domke Gripper 1" swivel strap

I keep trying alternatives through the years, and always come back to this one.

I use blackrapid r-Straps on all my cameras except compacts. This is the smaller lighter "metro" strap. I don't like cameras pulling on my neck. These are shoulder straps that let the camera flow freely up and down. You can easily adjust the positioning and they even make a tripod adapter mount so you can use it with a tripod adapter plate.

I use Op/Tech straps

I use a modular Op/Tech strap.  Most of the time, I leave the neck part off and use it as a light duty hand strap:

But if needed I can clip a neoprene neck strap in as well:

iPad image apologies... Domke gripper w/swivels makes a nice wrist strap as well...
-- hide signature --

Here's to learning something new everyday, and remembering it the next.

Simple flexible when attached a couple pods attached as well for a spare battery and card as well as a lens cloth.

Same strap one attachment and swivel portion unhooked, takes 5 seconds and allows me to use my spider tripod mount of a sling for riding skiing and hiking....

Tactical rig, great for those rally active endeavors and still having it accessible.

+1 for Op Tech
1

I've always used the Neoprene straps, especially Op/Tech

http://optechusa.com/straps/mirrorless-strap-1187.html

1) the Neoprene rubber helps alleviate the weight

2) feels good on your neck

3) doesn't leave abrasion like the regular straps

4) are easy to mount onto the camera and to unmount for that matter

Wish manufacturers start providing us with neoprene material and not the hard and abrasive cloth like material

Cheers

Re: Show me your neck straps.

Although this Lance Camera Strap (Classic Quick Connect) resides on my EM1, I bought it for my since sold EM5. It's a fashion statement at this point as the pictured set up is somewhat heavy. I also have a BlackRapid strap for times when I'll be carrying for extended periods.

Re: Show me your neck straps.

My main strap is the Domke strap. I use 1.5" for the E-5, and the 1" for the Pens (http://www.tiffen.com/results.html?search_type_no=436&tablename=domke):

Olympus E-5 with Domke 1.5" gripper strap

E-PM2 with 1" Domke Gripper strap and Gariz leather case

I like the Peak Design cuff for a wrist strap. At times, I will also use their leash, but I prefer the Domke gripper straps (https://peakdesignltd.com/store/?c=straps):

E-5 with Peak Designs cuff, E-PM2 with Peak Designs Leash, TG-2 with connector + stuffed squirrels

Re: Show me your neck straps.

1.5"/45mm wide & soft for weight distribution.

I also use a shoulder strap for a second or heavier camera.

Peak Design Leash

Neck straps are universally ergonomically awful, and the ones that are the least awful ergonomically are also the least likely to actually fit in a camera bag. Slings are the solution to world peace. You can use it as a neck strap if you really want though.

Quick release attachments visible dangling off the smaller camera.

All my neck straps are wrist straps

Made by Gordy, except for the one on my RX-1 which was made by Luigi Crescenzi. I like the Gordy's just as well and they cost a LOT less.

I don't like/use neck straps.

Sorry for the IQ. Ipad shot.

Here are my Olympus cameras with their wrist straps.

Couch Handmade Racer-X

I got a "Racer-X" strap from Couch (http://www.couchguitarstraps.com). Check it:

Not the most high-tech, but they do look good and are comfortable, and long enough to wear over the shoulder if you wish. Also note the OP/TECH Mini Quick Disconnect loops, which are so very convenient!

Also got a Couch strap for my Pentax K-01:
