    Which strap..

    Looking for a wide camera strap. As a sling or around the neck.
    I have many, and donít like any!

    PD, BLACK RAPID, RUGGARD, etc...

    The strap shall be used fora Nikon D750 with24-120 f/4 cr attached.

    The one material I liked was one used with my Artisan straps. Not the silk or leather. They do have an adjustable length in that material.
    Nylon, leather, neoprene( ? Spelling ) ones are terrible for me.

    Any and all suggestions, greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    There is a wide one from AA. One hand adjustable length. Quite comfortable. But you seem to rule out any material normally used. The one I think of has a small plastic adjustment thingy, leather enforced ends with key rings and I'd say the strap material is Nylon.

    Re: Which strap..

    For a wide strap to be used on a heavy camera, I like 1.5" wide, woven canvas duck material. I've made a few straps using the Domke FA-140 Gripper Utility Strap as a base. It's great for a bag as is (it's the replacement strap for the Domke F5XB bag); for a camera, I have replaced the heavy metal loops and clips with a simple, light ladder and eyelet, and use a shorter 3/8" wide nylon webbing to attach to the camera. The strap itself is only $19, and the ladders might cost you $4 if you go for high end pieces.
