I own two. One on each camera. Both can be worn all day with no problems. I almost always have my D7100 W/Extend Battery & 18-300mm and a second camera with a 10-24mm. That's lots of wight hanging on you, this strap makes it easy and pain free. Getting hard to find, buy one.

I loved the design of this strap and I think it would be extremely comfortable; I found that the "comfort" band that goes around your neck was way too tall for my neck, getting caught in my hair, etc. Great design but think it's better suited for males or those with extremely short hair.

Most comfortable strap ever

By Saroya

Comments about Crumpler Convenient Disgrace Camera Strap (Black):

I have three of these straps. Every time I get a new camera, I ditch the Canon theft advertisement and replace it with the comfortable Crumpler. Yeah, it is a little more bulky to stick in a camera bag, but it is well worth. It is also long enough that I can cross it over my chest and walk/hike with my camera at my side, ready for action. I also like the fact that you are using the camera's strap attachment points and not attaching something to the bottom of your camera that may work loose. I have an L plate on my camera at all times and this strap works well with it. I've heard that it has been discontinued, which is a shame. It is a great camera accessory to own.

Makes carrying a medium format camera pleasurable

By Lincoln

Comments about Crumpler Convenient Disgrace Camera Strap (Black):

I bought this strap to carry my medium format camera. I purchased an earlier generation for my 5D years ago and that enabled me to carry that camera for hours on end without discomfort. The challenge was could this strap make carrying a 5.5lb camera painless. The answer- YES is did! The strap forms perfectly to the contours of my shoulder evenly distributing the weight of the camera. This strap enables me to carry my medium format camera everywhere.

    Comments about Crumpler Convenient Disgrace Camera Strap (Black):

    I bought this after reading the other reviews. I was not sure about the length (I sometimes like to sling the camera diagonally across my chest) and comfort with longer lenses. It is very comfortable to use.

      Comments about Crumpler Convenient Disgrace Camera Strap (Black):

      After readings reviews on the Crumpler camera strap I ordered one. The strap is very long as I like to wear it the camera chest high so it needed a lot of choking up on the straps. Also the neck area is well ventilated and easy to wear but a little narrow for a wider neck. The reviews that spoke of the pros and cons of this strap were bang on. Thanks to the community for their reviews. Happy with my purchase.

              I love pretty much everything about this strap, except for one tiny little thing... which is the fact that Crumpler seems to no longer make this product, and it's out of stock almost everywhere! Guess I need to buy a few extras in case the one I have now ever breaks. Seriously, this strap is amazing. Best thing I've ever used.

                      The second I put this on my camera, with my heaviest lens (a 5D Mark III with my 24-100mm on it,) I fell a little in love. The default Canon strap is so hard edged, and just wears on you really quickly. This is extremely comfortable and oddly seems to make the camera lighter. I have yet to fully put it through its paces out on trail hikes or extended jaunts, but I have this feeling it will be lovely. My only complaint is that it looks like it is built to unsnap easily, so you can detach the main bulk of the strap at will, but thus far it refuses to do it for me. I could just be missing something.

                              Everyone but me I suppose. I was one of those "Why should I use anything but what the camera comes with?" types. Then article after article convinced me to head into B&H to try on straps. And after 2 hours at the strap stand at B&H (yes, 2 hours) this is what I chose. The strap is durable, and the neoprene does an incredible job of spreading the weight of whatever is around your neck across a large area thus reducing any "pinch" zones like smaller straps might. And because it's neoprene, when you move it moves with you. I can't say enough about what a difference that makes. Put this up against a nylon or leather strap and it will win hands down! It's like a shock absorber for your camera on your neck. My ONLY complaint (but won't stop me from giving 5 stars) is when you are wearing it with a camera bag, the clips then to get caught on the camera bag strap when going from camera at side to camera at your eye, and that can be a pita.

                              I use a Canon full frame dslr typically attached to a Canon 70-200 mm f 2.8 lens.
                              That can be a lot of weight around one's neck. The convenient disgrace is one comfortabe strap for heavy loads.

                              I recommend it for anyone seeking a durable, and comfortable camera strap.

                                  Comments about Crumpler Convenient Disgrace Camera Strap (Black):

                                  I bought this strap to replace the factory strap which came with my camera. I shoot primarily outdoors and often in the desert, and I find the factory straps to be just plain uncomfortable in these conditions. After a few weeks of use, this strap is proving to be comefortable, cool, light and well made. My only criticism of this strap is that the quick relases clips have an extra piece which needs to be depressed to get them undone, and this requires two hands to operate. It make the buckles secure, which is a good thing! However it does make getting the strap off a bit more of a chore.
