    I spent god knows how many hours searching for the perfect inexpensive camera strap. Over 15 or 20 dollars for a strap and I imagine you may be getting screwed. These things are very inexpensive materials, even for a small cushioned or padded strap.

    Anyways, this strap is MUCCHHHH more comfortable than the original manufacturer strap I got with my Canon t2i. That canon strap was so irritating with my neck and it was not too comfortable.

    This neoprene is very soft and gentle, it gives a very cushioning feeling. I can imagine it getting annoying after a few hours of wearing but only from the weight, not any skin irritation or issues with that. The weight issue is something that would happen no matter what strap you have, I believe some person in these reviews mentions something about it hurting them after a few hours. Theres no strap that will avoid that.

    Anyways, for the price this is an amazing strap and I am done looking.

    One thing to note: the length of the strap is significantly less. I usually wear my strap so my camera hangs around my belly button or a little higher.

    With this one the maximum I could reach was about two inches above that.. at max. It was a small issue but I have gotten used to it and I am average height, 5’8″. Just be aware of that before buying.. in case you like to hang your camera down below ur knees you probably wouldnt be able to do that with this… 😛

    The Cosmos strap replaces the original Canon strap that came with my SX40, a camera that only weighs 21 ounces. The trouble with 21 ounces is that after 5 miles of hiking, it becomes 10 pounds, and the weight is concentrated.

    This is the fifth strap that I’ve bought through Amazon, and it is the overall best that I’ve tried. It’s not perfect, but it is an improvement.

    I saw that the Cosmos was wider than the Canon original, and I thought it would disperse the weight better, and it does! It is definitely more comfortable than the Canon strap, BUT I wish it was padded and that the edges were curled (called “beading” by those who sew). I’ve yet to find a strap like that that would last [see other review] and stand up to sweat.

    Although I had some difficulty in putting it on the camera – I ALWAYS have difficulty – and that it is somewhat narrower than I’d like, I still give it 4 stars.
