    Adjustable and Comfortable

    I bought this along with my Sony A6300 as I knew the stock straps would be uncomfortable. And man am I glad I got these over the others. I have quite a beefy build with my Sony A6300 as I have a Manfrotto mini tripod attached to it along with a SmallRig cage and a huge external flash device. Which makes the camera fairly heavy and a pain to carry. But this strap has kept my neck and shoulders comfortable even having all the weight being carried. I've gone through hours long hikes with it and haven't had an issue with the strap itself. And sweat doesn't even seem to affect it!

    Was using the neck strap from my Fuji camera and it bothered my like crazy after a photo day at the Reagan Center. Went to BB on my way back home for something else I did not end up getting. But.....I saw this neck strap and thank goodness. Sooo much better! Soft felt material is great. Not really padded, but my camera is light weight. May want more padding if your camera is heavy DSLR style or your using a heavy lens. For moderate weight rigg this is great value and simple.

    I was on vacation and needed a new strap for my camera. In the Jacksonville, FL area there is little choice. I stopped at Best Buy after first ascertaining that they do carry them. I would have liked more choices of style and a more comfortable strap, but this did allow me to continue on with my camera safely tethered to me. The strap has no foam or stretch, so it can get tiring if you are carrying around a 300mm lens, but it provided the security I needed.

    Comfortable but not easy to put on

    While it's far more comfortable than the canon strap. There is no instructions on how to put it on. That's annoying and when someone is ordering it and picking it up and doesn't have time to have an associate help put it on your camera it's extra time researching instructions or tutorials online on how best to put it on a Canon camera with a battery pack and without one .

    Purchased this strap as a replacement for the stock strap that came with the camera. Was shooting pictures at a race and the "buckle" that held the strap to the camera came loose and the strap pulled free. Had I not had my hand on the camera itself when it happened this could have caused the camera to hit the ground potentially causing major damage to the camera or the lens or both.

    We bought this strap to replace the strap that came with a Sony mirrorless camera. When we added a new larger lens the camera became a burden on the neck. This strap is a good bit wider and it spreads the load. It was easy to install,looks very good and seems plenty strong. Good buy at a good price.

    Looks good, stylish and comfortable! I forgot my strap at home and came to best buy and picked this guy up. I ended up keeping it on for a while. After about 5 months of moderate use it began to fray at the ends of the straps. I had to retire it to the trash in fear that it may one day finally snap and drop my camera.

    A fantastic strap for the Sony a6000! I bought this for my wife because the strap that came with the camera was uncomfortable. When I bought this, she was very happy. Soft inside and sturdy as well. She now can have the camera around her neck all day without feeling uncomfortable. A wonderful strap!

    I searched high a low to find a new strap that is comfortable and stylish but not so obvious. This strap is a beautiful color and has the perfect padding for long term wear. I will say, that in high temperatures, it will make you sweat a little but its not that serious. That really hasn't been a problem for me. Overall, its a great product and it feels very secure.

    Doesn't hold camera

    Bought this strap in black after having it in blue and the string that holds you camera on is a silky type of material and slides. If you have a heavy camera it most likely will not hold your equipment. Buyer beware. My camera fell to the floor with it wrapped around my neck

    Nice looking strap, but it's too slippery.

    This strap looked like a winner at first, but once it was tied on the camera a glaring design flaw nearly caused a tragedy. The silky fabric on the strap ends does not stay secure on the camera lugs and the camera nearly fell to the ground. I returned the strap for exchange.

    Really soft material on the inside of the strap. I honestly prefer this strap over manufacturer straps. Makes it nice and easy to do long photoshoot sessions and not having a harder material rub against your neck.

    Great All Around Band

    This band is perfect for me and my height. At 6’2 the standard bands that come with camera is super short. This is much longer and sturdy and a perfect accessory in my opinion.

    The is a very comfortable strap. It came undone for me, but maybe I'll add a few stitches to keep it more secure. ...I wouldnt go out of my way to recommend, but it's just enough to do the job if secured better than I had it.

    This is a must have!! It's super comfortable. I used it while on a trip to Disney... 4 parks in 4 days with no problems. It felt comfortable the entire time unlike the strap that comes with the camera.

    Soft, flexible and didn’t irritate the back and side of my neck. Didn’t have a problem with attaching to my camera or adjusting the length. Should have purchased this three trips ago!

    This was a replacement for a Nikon strap which tended to cut into my shoulder after a short time wearing it. This strap is much more comfortable and I recently used it for over 2 hours and barely knew I had it on.

    Love it. Bought one for one camera and went back to buy 3 more for the case and my other camera setup. Extremely comfortable on my shoulder.

    I already had a strap on my camera but it wasn't long enough for my liking. I purchased this one and it did the trick. I love the soft side that rests on my neck and also the overall look of it.
