I remember someone mentioning a company that makes "nicer" camera straps, with nice materials, denim, pinstripes, fuzzy, etc. I have searched and couldn't find the post on the forums...

What is this company?
Shooting vertical with grip on black rapid is too uncomfortable, time to try something new.

I think the Hold Fast Moneymaker is the nicest straps out there. They're not for everyone, but if I were a strap kind of guy, I'd get them.

Check out PhatStraps on Etsy. I've been thinking about snatching one of those up. They have a pretty good selection of straps in both fabric and leather.

Hmm, looks rather uncomfortable to me. Style over function?

Best looking straps I've seen. Have to mouse over the color choice to view them.

Thanks for the link! These are great! Might pick up couple. I just use the good ol Canon straps myself.

I've ordered from them in the past. Great to deal with. They have a site www.phatstraps.com I believe they started out making dog collars and transitioned to camera straps. That experience carries over.

I've since switched to using UpStraps on all my cameras. I like having the rubber pad on the shoulder. It keeps my camera firmly in place. www.upstrap.com

Crumpler make the 3 we have on our cameras...LOVE them, very comfy and look nice: http://www.crumpler.com/us/Camera-Bags/Camera-Straps-Accessories/Convenient-Disgrace.html?LanguageCode=EN&SKU=CDE001-T01000

If you poke around they have other styles as well on the site. Had our straps for about 4 years now on various bodies, no complaints and super durable.

I'll second the Holdfast Money Maker straps. I have had them for almost a month. For my style of shooting they are leaps and bounds more comfortable them my old Rapid R straps. I still use my BR fasteners as the ones that come with the Money Maker wouldn't be suitable to hold iPhones.

Great straps!

Another +1 for the HoldFast Gear Money Maker. Some of the best money I've spent on anything photo related in a long time.
