I purchased 3 floating camera straps - the Vivatar, the Olympus and the Chums -since they were all pretty inexpensive and they all seemed to have good reviews and bad reviews. After trying out all 3 I decided the Olympus will go with me on my next snorkeling adventure with my new Nikon Coolpix AW100 (which I absolutely love but that's for another review). Here are my observations on all three straps. I ordered all 3 in yellow – the Vivatar was a kind of dingy orangish yellow while the other two were a bright yellow which I felt would be easier to spot so score 1 for Olympus and Chums. The Vivatar and Olympus both were easy to dry off while the Chums is made of a kind of spongy material which doesn't dry off right away so score one for Vivatar and Olympus. The Olympus and Chums fit my wrist very nicely where as I wasn't quite sure how to attach the Vivatar to my person. I thought the Olympus when it was cinched up fit my wrist especially well so score two for Olympus and one for Chums. A side note here – I have an average man's size hands whereas my wife has long slender hands. The Olympus slid right off of her hand even when it was cinched up so the Chums might actually work better for her. The Olympus and the Chums both seemed more buoyant than the Vivatar. The Vivatar failed the bathtub test – filling my bathtub to the top and dropping the strap into the water attached to the Nikon (it's a Jacuzzi tub so it's fairly deep). The Nikon was actually resting on the bottom of the tub with the Vivatar whereas it was not touching with the other two straps. The Vivatar was holding up one end of the camera so I suspect in deeper waters it would keep the camera floating but I don't know that for sure. Score one apiece for the Olympus and the Chums. One final observation – and this one is a little subjective. The Olympus just seemed better constructed with more durable parts and connections than the other two. Score one point for Olympus. Final score => Vivatar – 1 point, Olympus – 6 points, Chums – 3 points. Hope this is helpful.

Bought for use with my Olympus 770SW
Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it came recommended to keep the camera afloat if I lose contact with my camera.
That is likely, as it is not quite small enough for a small hand and wrist.

      Although I was initially worried that the strap was too big for my wrist, it worked perfectly in the water and didn't hamper my snorkeling. My fear that it would float off my wrist was unfounded.

          Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Red):

          ive seen smaller floating straps. This is not one of them. I'm not sure if the smaller straps would keep a camera afloat or not, but they fit my wrist. This would slip right off. The camera might bob to the surface, but I would still lose it in the surf, off a boat or anywhere.

                Comments about Floating Wrist Strap (Orange):

                I took this floating wrist strap on my new Olympus Tough on a 2 week small ship trip, and found it comfortable and useful. I could take the camera outside on slippery decks and feel secure I would not loose the camera. The bright orange helped me find the camera as I tend to leave things lying around. The floating nature of the strap is useful around water. I am now taking it along on a canoe trip in the Philippine Islands. A useful travel item.

                  I bought this for my new Olympus TG3 so that I don't have to worry about dropping the camera into the water accidentally. The bright orange color will certainly help locating it. It's somewhat bulky(expected to be so for the needed buoyancy) but it fits comfortably on my wrist.

                  This strap does its job, but its a little bulky. Most waterproof cameras are small and light, so it seems like a thinner wrist strap would serve just as well.

                  Bought my wife a fairly expensive all season underwater camera. Didn't thing of needing a float strap but after almost losing the camera we realized bad things could happen as we passed the camera back and forth. A simple product. It floats. As simple as that. More than enough bouncy to support the weigh of the camera. Bright red matches the camera so wive loves it.

                    When shooting in or around the water, this strap lets the camera float to the surface if you should let go of the strap. Ideal for those of us who have had to free dive to the bottom to retrieve a camera we dropped!

                      Used this strap during a Grand Canyon rafting trip. I was originally reluctant to purchase because of the bulkiness of the floatation. However I knew this feature was a priority so bought the product regardless. I appreciate that you have the option to detach the floatation component when not needed. The floatation proved to support the weight of the camera but does not hinder your ability to use the camera under water. Pleased w/ this product and would highly recommend. Worth the price.

                      Purchased the pink to save a few dollars thinking I could just replace the end loop clip that finally broke off the orange strap. The clip diameters are different and do not match, so now I have pink. It does the job and I knocked a star for not being able to swap wrist straps.
