Instead, you can choose the best camera strap. Whether you value style or just need something to help lighten the load on your heavy camera, we’ve rounded up the best camera straps on the market right now.

Peak Design Slide Summit Edition Strap


Does price reduce premium quality?

  • + Quality strap and hardware
  • – Fits snugly into the kit bag

Strap, shoulder, and neck straps all in one, the Slide exudes quality with a harness style harness and high-quality hardware that includes smart quick-release buttons to release the strap. However, this is far from the most compact strap, so it is difficult to fit it into a cramped bag.

Breathing strap for BlackRapid binoculars

BlackRapid offer not only for binoculars

Weight: 38 g | Maximum length: 95 cm (approx) | Material: Synthetic rubber / nylon

  • + Breathable elastic neck cushion
  • – A bit pricey

Although marketed as a binocular strap, this neck strap also attaches easily to the camera. Its unique feature is a breathable, stretchy and highly flexible neck pillow. It also folds up little and can be quickly detached, but the price still feels high next to the Matin strap.
