How to Attach a PRO STRAP to Your Camera

The difference between the OP/TECH Super Classic Strap Pro Loop, and the OP/TECH USA 1001062 Super Classic Strap-Uni Loop for cameras and binoculars is very straightforward once you buy both, as I did: the Pro loop has two connectors right at the sides of the neoprene shoulder (or neck, depending on what you call it) pad, and the Uni Loop does not. This is presumably so a Pro can use the former strap to remove the neo shoulder strap to use with other OP/Tech accessories.
The threading loops that go into the camera/binocular strap metal arches, and the clips near those threading loops, and the adjustable side black nylon straps, and even the neoprene shoulder pad, are identical in these two models.
So, one must decide if they want to pay five dollars more (price may vary with time) for the two uppermost plastic buckles--the ones at each of of the neoprene shoulder pad--or if they will never use them or need them. I'm in the latter group.
Note: the Super Pro Loop Strap model features everything the same as the Pro Loop, but has a wider neoprene shoulder pad that is cut in a slight arc, or curve, to go around the neck profile. Also, the Super Pro Loop Strap model comes in colors for the neoprene (but, as any camera maven knows, only black will not show dirt). For me, it's unnecessary to have such a wide pad, even when I am carrying, say, my 4 pound 4 ounce 15x56mm binoculars; I prefer the thinner and non-curved shoulder pad of the Classic versions. Your preferences may vary. I found these straps very confusing, even when watching thye Op Tech official videos, until I bought one of each for myself. Hope you can buy the one that would serve you best. :-)
I spent a great deal of time researching many different options before settling on the OP/TECH USA Pro Strap. I couldn't be happier with my selection. The neoprene padding works as advertised, more comfortably and more evenly distributing the camera's weight. The first time you try it out, you'll feel a noticeable difference. The rubber friction bumps on the bottom of the neoprene strip keep the camera from sliding around on my neck and help keep it on my shoulder when I wear it there.
I'm six feet tall and had no problem adjusting the strap to exactly where I wanted it. I prefer to wear my camera lower with a longer strap that enables me to wear it bandolier-style on occasion. I've also noticed that the OP/TECH strap doesn't constantly get twisted the way the stock Nikon strap does.
One criticism I've seen about the OP/TECH design is the use of quick-release clips. I've yet to read a review or comment by anyone who said the clips released accidentally, causing their camera to fall. Honestly, the clips are so stiff and solid that it's difficult for me to envision this ever happening. You can buy Velcro strips to protect and further reinforce the clips, but unless you're using your camera under extreme conditions, it seems unnecessary.
I know $20 might seem expensive for a camera strap that's not flashy and doesn't have extra features, but if you value comfort, convenience and quality over style and you need to carry your DSLR for extended periods of time, you won't regret spending a little extra on the OP/TECH Pro Strap. It's worth every penny.
One final tip: Check out the link below for the OP/TEC video on different ways to attach the strap to your camera. The final reverse/double-loop method is neat and solid.

The big neoprene neck/shoulder pad is firm but soft and easily spreads the load, obviously it's not as secure / load spreading as a harness but there is enough length in it to wear cross body (over head and one shoulder) plus the grips on the pad don't slip with the camera slung (temporarily) on a shoulder. With a big telephoto over a long day it's a bit of a load on the neck and I often move it to a cross body position to distribute the load better.
Although it will take the big telephoto I also add a second strap to the lens at times, this makes swapping to a smaller wide angle easier when needed and allows the big lens to hang at the hip.
For a convenient and comfortable alternative to a standard camera strap I'd recommend it, I recently bought a second cammo one for my Canon EOS R, the new strap seems to use a softer neoprene pad.
The strap is wide and strong. The connections are up to the job. the available extra long extensions give you an vast range of free movement and the longest and quickly adjust to bring your camera close to you when needed.
It doesn't slip off the shoulder and is very comfortable on the neck.
It feels really sturdy and I have no downsides to report.
The neoprene neck part of the strap is shorter than the one I had before, so I had no choice but to use the new 3/8" webbing attachment pieces rather than my still serviceable old ones that were made of a stronger plastic material.
Because the buckles can be positioned anywhere on the webbing it took me much fiddling about to adjust the overall length to what suited me and to get them equal on either side.
There is a useful video, 3/8" Webbing Connectors, on the optechusa.com website that shows ways of dealing with the loose retainers for the ends of the straps.
When my dslr is hanging hands free round my neck the weight of the lens tilts the camera so that the webbing straps are awkwardly twisted where they pass through the lugs on the camera. I'm wondering now if I should have bought the Pro Loop strap, which might be better in this respect.
The idea behind the clips on the strap is that you can have webbing attachments on a number of cameras and easily share one neoprene neck strap between them. Well I only have one camera but the longer length of the neck part of my old strap meant that I could unclip that part and have little in the way when mounting my camera on a tripod, or I could clip the two side pieces together to make a short carry handle. The webbing attachments of my new strap, each being 14" long, are no use for anything in this respect.
