I bought this because the camera strap was rubbing my neck some, and thought this might be better. I was right. The strap has a faux fur side, which leaves my skin in tact.
My one grumble would be that the piece of the strap that attaches to the camera is very smooth/slippy. The result is that if you aren't careful, the strap slips and slides itself so much that it disconnects from the camera, and your camera crashes to the floor, which isn't a good thing. That I've managed to do it a bunch of times is, worrying.
Now I know it could happen I've worked out how to stop it (make sure it's safely attached), but it will cause someone an issue, I'm sure of it.
