      I own a fairly large Manfrotto tripod that I lug around from time to time. The shoulder strap I use for it does a good job of alleviating a lot of the stress on my shoulder and allows me to balance it as I bounce along whatever rugged hillside I'm cavorting about that day (nature/landscape photography). So when I bought a pair of fairly large binoculars I decided to give the makers of my tripod's shoulder strap a nod and buy a neck strap of their making. The shoulder strap, it turns out, was made by Op/Tech.The product description states that the Classic Strap is made for heavier equipment and it shows. The main part of the strap that goes around the back of your neck is made of a cushioning neoprene that does a good job of alleviating the load of my heavy pair of binos. It has plenty of "give" but not too much. Attaching the strap to the spy glasses was easy enough. They give you plenty of strap to work with. Too much, in fact for me - I am short in stature. After a couple of outings with the binoculars (I'm an avid birder), I cut the excess from the nylon elements of the strap and used a candle flame to seal the frayed ends. I'm not sure they designed it this way but it almost seems like they did. (You can do this with nylon webbing - just don't get it too close to the flame or it WILL catch fire).Op/Tech states that the strap makes things feel 50% lighter and while I can't exactly pin point a percentage, I must say it DOES come pretty close to cutting half the weight! In the short time I've been using the strap this summer I must say the neoprene neck pad doesn't seem to be a too much of a sweat sponge. Given enough hot days in the field though, it will start to smell. That's easily remedied by washing it in the kitchen sink with a drop of liquid dish washing soap (and water, obviously). It's usually dry early the next morning, ready for another day's birding. [...] The quality, durability, and weight distribution make it a product of note. In fact, you'll remember it when you're looking for a neck strap to go with that digital SLR you've been saving up for. Add to that the fact Op/Tech is STILL manufacturing it entirely in the USA and you'll see why it's a classic. Seriously, when was the last time you noticed the brand of your neck strap?

      It is a pretty decent strap and a good value for the money. It allows me to wear my camera over my shoulder comfortably and leave my camera bag in the car. It has just enough extra room over the factory Canon strap to work well. The only short coming it the padding could be a tad longer. What was there was great and perfect for just walking around. But if you needed it in a slightly different position (like when getting in and out of a car) the padding wouldn't be there. Overall it is a good product. With just a tad more padding (like 6-9" more), it would be a great strap.

          It works but, after a while it becomes unconfortable when you use it around your neck. Good thing it is a bit spongy so it works.
          and it has a good price.

            Comfy, seem to lighten the load especially around the neck. Only draw back.... I wish they would incorporate the non-slip material on the stock nikon straps. Thats it. It saves my shoulders and my neck at a wedding. the straps are also long enough to cross the straps while going to the bathroom or walking from the car to the church or shoot.

              This is the third one of these straps I have purchased over the years. I have found the strap to be an excellent product that wears well and is very comfortable to use. I bought this strap to replace a strap had started to corrode after only two years of use.

              One of the best features of this strap it that it has no metal parts, nothing to corrode or scratch the camera. I also liked the plain simple look, no advertising to attract attention. The soft neoprene material clings to your shoulder and provides a nice level of padding.

              I would highly recommend this shoulder strap

                      I have arthritis in my neck and with the stock strap that came with my Canon,within 10 minutes my neck would be killing me. I used this on my recent vacation and I was amazed. I was able to wear my camera for hours and not have any problems. I bought one for my husband at as well but he was not as impressed, but his Olympus with his 300mm telephoto lens is a lot heavier than my Canon and 300 mm len.

                        This is my second Classic Strap, so no surprises with the out-of-the-box quality. This strap is paired with a Bushnell H2O 10X42 Binocular and it's very comfortable. It did not do well with a Canon 60D and 70-200mm lens setup. The strap kept slipping off of my shoulder due to the weight. After a week of backpacking, the strap material started to lightly fray where it rubbed against the backpack shoulder strap. However, a scissors trim and a quick pass with a butane lighter cleared up the situation. For the B&H discounted price, it's a nice deal.

                          This strap was purchased for a Canon T2i. It's a significant comfort upgrade from the thin, factory strap. The quality is very good and it's not too bulky. The only complaint is that the plastic sliding sleeves, which retain the extra lengths of 3/8" strap, are too loose. Perhaps, this sleeve should be made of a rubber compound instead of plastic to hold it in place. Overall, we are satisfied with the purchase; especially at the discounted B&H price!

                              I love the padded strap. It just give me my neck more comfortable while I have to carry my gear for long distance. Some people mentioned about the length is bit short. But not in my case. I am 6'4" guy and the length is just perfect for me. No need to get the extend strap.

                                No-brainer as a branded strap replacement. Also gives you full flexibility to use with other OP/Tech products

                                  I have other Op/tech straps and they are great. This one is also going to do all I ask it to do. I wanted a bright strap for my back-up camera and this one is perfect. It's easy to see and it is comfortable to use. I never use a camera without a strap and when I have this one properly fastened I don't have to worry about it coming loose and falling to the ground.

                                        Much much more comfortable than the included strap with my purchased Canon Rebel T2i.

                                          Use on a Pentax DSLR
                                          Easier to use than original strap when storing camera in Tamrac case (disconnects for storage elsewhere or use on another camera or bino)
                                          Wider and softer on the neck
                                          Longer so the camera can hang lower (easier on the lower ribcage)
