Here's a new concept, products that actually work! I certainly didn't think this would make much difference on my camera & only got it because I hate the original Canon straps (40D w/ grip & 1D Mark III) & if Domke makes a version of what I'm looking for it's pretty much guaranteed that I'll go with them. So anyway the rubber strips on the underside of the strap are absolutely perfect & actually hold the camera in place, like, seriously. No other camera strap I've used has done that so incredibly well plus it's sewn in as part of the strap so it will NEVER peel off. Next the strap itself is the usual amazing Domke quality with enough strength to hold anything you'll EVER strap to it & it's such a simple, non-LookAtTheModelOfMyCameraBeforeYouStealIt style unlike the usual OEM straps. No big bright logo, no brand advertisement, just a simple sturdy strap that will probably last you a lifetime. After receiving mine I went out immediately & bought 3 more for the rest of my camera bodies (30D, Rebel XTi & Elan 7n). Another thing that is great about this item is the way it ALWAYS lays flat over your shoulder. You don't have to straighten it out before you hang it around your neck or arm because the quick release buckles twist like they do on Domke's awesome bags (btw, this is basically a smaller version of the famous straps attached to the Domke shoulder bags, everything is the same except for width).
I have at least one camera on my shoulder at all times throughout the day, usually two (one camera hung over each shoulder) and I didn't realize how wonderful a good strap can feel until I had one.

*note:* There is no padding on these straps & they DO NOT stretch like some of the "bouncy" straps that us Photojournalists despise so much so if you need padding or a "bouncy" strap either figure out a DIY way to add a pad to this or maybe look elsewhere. Part of what makes these straps so sturdy & long-lasting is the way their built & anything added would compromise that. Plus Domke's style has always been strong, simple, low-key, durable photography bags & gear so it wouldn't fit with their idea's i suppose.

I wanted to check "no" stars but I can't...

Bought a pair within the last four months. Recently, I noticed fraying on the webbing attached to the rings supplied by Domke to attach to my cameras. Today, the webbing worked its way out of the rings and the camera dropped to the ground shattering the filter and shade and the zoom is totally stiff from the crash.

In more than 30 years of shooting, I've never had a strap or its hardware fail until now. What a mess this has made of my camera and lens! Stay away from these defective products! I've contacted the manufacturer and will see what happens...

        Comments about 1.5" Web Camera Strap with Swivel Quick Release (Black):

        I have not used it very long, but so far I have had 2 issues (one is minor, and the other may be based on the first one). I cannot figure out how to use the piece of leather that was included (it is supposed to go with the O ring somehow, I think as a safeguard). The diagram provided which shows it, is not very helpful (hard to see, and leather does not fit well - it is too tight).

        I had a mishap once when I was simply walking, the O ring came unattached to the camera body. Somehow the canvas strap had worked its way into the ring and gotten twisted around far enough to come out of the ring completely, this happened on its own.

        Fortunately I caught the camera before it hit the ground!

        Comments about 1.5" Web Camera Strap with Swivel Quick Release (Navy):

        I love the Domke Gripper straps. Well made, very classy-looking, nothing to stretch (I don't like neoprene, as I sometimes use my strap to help stabilize my camera) and no markings--makes for a good stealth strap when shooting in an unfamiliar crowd. (Doesn't shout TOURIST or JOURNALIST. Doesn't shout anything.)The 1.5" with the swivels is a blessing and a curse... I like the swivels, they let me flip the strap over to the non-grippy side if I'm going to be doing a lot of shooting , to keep the camera maneuverable over my shoulder, much like a sling-strap. And of course if I'm just going to be walking around I can flip it back to the grippy side for security. But I am not a big fan of the quick releases that come with the swivels. Just about the only use I've ever had for them is to attach my camera to my frame pack when backpacking, but I rarely do this and the quick-releases just strike me as a way to make the camera more steal-able. That might be me over-thinking it though... I've got a Domke Gripper on every one of my cameras, and I intend to buy another for each future camera.

              This 1.5" version spreads the weight better than the 1" and is suited for handling a DSLR. Inintially I wasn't sure about the usefulness of the swivel quick release, but it helps keep the strap straigt. It is relatively light compared to other larger/padded straps. It is low-key without any flashy branding, unlike the ones that come with DSLRs.

                  I was looking for a quick release option and this fit the bill. Only concern is that the clips then rattle a bit - trade off. Won't be able to sneak up on someone with this.

                      This strap attaches to the camera body with round split rings, and includes small leather washers to protect the camera body. This all works well on my Nikon D200, but it may not work as well with other bodies. The strap itself is grippy on the shoulder, and distributes the weight of the camera well. I have had Domke bags for a number of years, and have always been pleased with the quality and durability.

                        I carry A D800 with a 70-200 on one shoulder and this strap works perfectly. It grips my clothing, and spreads the weight so I am not hurting the next day. I actually love the fact that there is no logo on it and you can unhook the strap when not needed.

                          I've used Domke straps for over 15 years. The basic design of the strap hasn't changed and its features that made them great when they first hit the market are still the best features of the strap today. The gripper portion of the strap ensures that it won't slide off your shoulder unexpectantly and the swivel joints and quick releases guarantee against twisting and tangling. There isn't a "normal" camera strap out there that can compare. This is a no frills strap that can be depended on no matter the shooting situation.

                              THIS IS THE 3RD DOMKE STRAP THAT I HAVE PURCHASSED BECAUSE THE OTHER TWO HAVE PREFORMED FLAWLESSLY. CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS USED IN THEIR MANUFACTURE SHOULD LAST A LIFETIME. I HAVE THREE OF THEIR BAGS, TWO MODEL F7's and one F4. I STARTED WITH THESE BAGS AND FOUND THEM RUGGED, SOLIDY MADE, WELL DESIGNED, COULD TAKE EVERYDAY USE, AND FOUND THEM WITHOUT FAULT. WHEN IT CAME TO REPLACING THE STRAPS I WAS USEING, THERE WAS NO QUESTION AS TO WHICH STRAP I WOULD CONCIDER. THESE ARE WELL MADE AND DESIGNED FOR HEAVY-DUTY EVERYDAY USE AND I DO NOT WORRY ABOUT A FAILURE OF THE CLASP. THESE STRAPS, WITH THEIR ANTI-SKID RUBBERIZED STRIPS WEAVED INTO THE BOTTOM KEEPS THEM IN PLACE WHEN ON MY SHOULDER. WITHOUT QUESTION THEY HAVE SERVED ME WELL.

                              Comments about 1.5" Web Camera Strap with Swivel Quick Release (Black):

                              I was looking for a comfortable and discreet strap that can safely carry my D7000. The belt supports the D7000 and 24-70mm together without problems. Plus I love the combination with my Domke bag. Which I'm about to change. I am very glad I made this purchase. This is the expected quality of any product Domke.

                                  Switched from Canon's factory strap to this one. It isn't stiff and swivels so there is no fighting with it. It is strong and the weaved in rubber grips keep the strap in place while on the shoulder. A great strap made in the USA.

                                  Using the strap on a Nikon D600 and some medium format Fuji Rangefinders. It's strong, with a rubber grip on the back of the strap. What's more there is no branding on it - a big plus (who want's to scream Nikon or Canon?) It swivels on both sides between the strap and the connection so you won't get in a tangle. All in all a great product that does what it is supposed to do.

                                    This is my second 1.5" Domke strap (I also have a 1" Domke strap). I LOVE these straps! Very durable, great grip on your shoulder, even with a heavy camera and they don't scream camera strap like Canon and Nikon factory straps do.

                                    My first two Domke straps have been in use for years and are still going strong. When I got another body, there was no question as to what strap I would use! These are the best.

                                    I love domke. I own a domke camera bag and its the best camera bag i've ever owned. I bought this strap for my fuji x100. It stays on it full time. It looks great and stays most of the time. The odd time the strap will slip if i'm bent over to far. I think a gripper strap should grip but most of the time it's a great strap.

                                      I use this strap with my Nikon D4, and it is perfect! the swivel is a nice touch as I am kind of a neat freak when it comes to my straps being nice and not twisted. I love domke straps and don't think I'm ever going to switch!
