    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.

    I have fallen totally in love with the fabric straps from Artisan and Artist. It's important to go to the correct website to find the total selection though:

    And if you want to make them quick disconnect from the camera, Peak Design now makes Anchor Links that allow you to fit their quick disconnect system to any strap with a narrow, flat strap end.
