I spent god knows how many hours searching for the perfect inexpensive camera strap. Over 15 or 20 dollars for a strap and I imagine you may be getting screwed. These things are very inexpensive materials, even for a small cushioned or padded strap.

Anyways, this strap is MUCCHHHH more comfortable than the original manufacturer strap I got with my Canon t2i. That canon strap was so irritating with my neck and it was not too comfortable.

This neoprene is very soft and gentle, it gives a very cushioning feeling. I can imagine it getting annoying after a few hours of wearing but only from the weight, not any skin irritation or issues with that. The weight issue is something that would happen no matter what strap you have, I believe some person in these reviews mentions something about it hurting them after a few hours. Theres no strap that will avoid that.

Anyways, for the price this is an amazing strap and I am done looking.

One thing to note: the length of the strap is significantly less. I usually wear my strap so my camera hangs around my belly button or a little higher.

With this one the maximum I could reach was about two inches above that.. at max. It was a small issue but I have gotten used to it and I am average height, 5'8". Just be aware of that before buying.. in case you like to hang your camera down below ur knees you probably wouldnt be able to do that with this... :P

The strap is very comfortable and looks better than any strap that comes with a lens camera. The problem is over time the strap is leaving black filth around the neck of the wearer and on their clothes.

The Cosmos strap replaces the original Canon strap that came with my SX40, a camera that only weighs 21 ounces. The trouble with 21 ounces is that after 5 miles of hiking, it becomes 10 pounds, and the weight is concentrated.

This is the fifth strap that I've bought through Amazon, and it is the overall best that I've tried. It's not perfect, but it is an improvement.

I saw that the Cosmos was wider than the Canon original, and I thought it would disperse the weight better, and it does! It is definitely more comfortable than the Canon strap, BUT I wish it was padded and that the edges were curled (called "beading" by those who sew). I've yet to find a strap like that that would last [see other review] and stand up to sweat.

Although I had some difficulty in putting it on the camera - I ALWAYS have difficulty - and that it is somewhat narrower than I'd like, I still give it 4 stars.

I picked up a Sony Nex 6 a few days ago and the strap that came with it felt cheap and uncomfortable. So I wanted a comfortable inexpensive strap to hold me over while waiting for my USA made LumaLabs Cinch strap to arrive (at 7x the price), which currently has a 2-4 week waiting period. This strap is much more comfortable than my stock strap and the padding is plenty thick and cushiony. But there's two things I don't like about it:

First, it's quite short. My camera sits just above my belly button with the strap extended as far out as possible. Which leads to my second issue, you can't put it across your shoulders and still use the camera, unless you're really small (could be a great size for short slender females), thus all the weight is on your neck, pulling it forward, which is horrible for your neck. Most of us, myself included, already have forward positioned necks from working at computers all day with imperfect form. This just adds to the problem.

It does the job for now, and at the price it's a nice, simple, and comfortable strap, but I can't see myself using it after I get the shoulder strap because of the neck strain it will eventually cause.

This is very well made. The neoprene is comfortable. I have a large lens on my camera that adds
a lot of weight to the overall system. This strap makes a difference between a comfortable day of
photography and misery.
I would buy this again but given the overall construction I doubt I'll have to.

This is a great alternative strap.
Much more comfortable than the cheap ones that come with the cameras.
looks like it will hold up for a while.
I would have given it 5 stars if it was just a little longer.
But all things considered, a great buy for under $10

I like this strap for its comfortable flexibility and non-slip surface....but I had to give it a very low rating because the special "knot" used to attach it to the camera "slips" under the weight of a heavy camera, heavy lens, and heavy activity..

I purchased this to replace my Canon strap for a trip to Greece and Turkey and although it was a little short... I liked it. But after about a week into my trip I happened to look at the strap's "knot" and its was within 1/4 inch of coming totally loose and allowing my expensive and heavy Canon 5D Mk II to crash unto the pavement. What a close call that was !!!!

I carefully re-threaded the strap (as I have done on many cameras before this one). After that I inspected the strap ends almost every couple of days. After a weeks time the strap had again slipped dangerously. I re-threaded it again. The "corrigatted (?)" surface of the strap looked just like all the other straps I had used in the past and I had never had one slip even one inch before! What was going wrong ?????? I finally came to the conclusion that my heavy SLR plus my new and very heavy f2.8, 24-70 Tamron Lens, plus the daily and constant swinging of the camera off my shoulder on my active vacation ..... was just too much stress for this strap.

At the end of the third week, the strap had slipped too much again. I've been home now, less than 12 hours and writing this review was my 1st and most important task. My next task is to put my Canon strap back on. I never noticed any slippage with it. But....... then again I never worked it that hard for that long with the heavy lens. I'll update this review if my Canon strap doesn't work as well as I expect it to.

Replace the small Panasonic strap that came with our FZ150 with this smaller strap! I thought from the description thatit would be a few inches longer than the original. It is nicely padded and a little bit stretchy so we still use it. Although it has a strong rubber or plastic smell that came along with it and hasnt left yet. ?

I have this strap on both my Canon 5D and my Canon T4i. It is the most comfortable strap on the market at a very affordable price. For cameras such as the 5D where weight is an issue you can't go wrong a Comos neoprene strap.

This camera strap is darn nearly everything you'd want & expect from such an accessory. Light weight, durable, comfortable, reasonably priced. The neoprene allows my neck to breathe. I am so glad I have mine!

So why only 4 stars? The ends of the strap are too large to fit into the holes in my camera. Absolutely impossible as is.

SOLUTION: For about $6.00 here on Amazon, I bought these tiny little "Mini Quick Disconnect / Connectors". HOME RUN! Problem solved.

If this applies to you, search Amazon for "OP/TECH USA 1301082 System Connectors (Mini QD Loops) - Extra Connectors for OP/TECH USA Compact Straps with Mini Quick Disconnects".

If this Cosmos camera strap had come with this type of connector, this would be a 5-Star rating, instead of only a "4".

That said - the Cosmos Black Elasticity Yadda-Yadda-Yadda Camera Strap is of extremely high quality and craftsmanship, I've used it ceaselessly since I got it, and I'm very glad to have it.
