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.

I use the Peak Design Leash as well, and can recommend it. It fits ideally to a smaller camera (E-M1) and can be easily stuffed into a photo bag, when not needed. For me the time for big neck straps with large parts of foam are over.

I like this for its small size in a camera bag, but is is awkward sliding the camera up? I am just imagining it getting stuck on clothes or a jacket depending on the material. Looks like the whole strap has to move around you, unlike the two in the title that stay in place but allow free movement.

I love my Blackrapid straps, but I am tired of taking the tripod lug off to change the battery or card.

The webbing this strap uses is very, very slick--like seat belt material. It doesn't really get caught on anything, I've found. And it's quick enough to disconnect from the strap as needed.
