Neoprene Neck Strap is designed for most DSLR camera that has two strap eyelets. The neck strap is made of comfortable and durable Neoprene. The comfort strap reduces neck and shoulder fatigue when shooting for a long time. This is specially useful for heavy cameras.
The neoprene strap features a large, thick stretchy neoprene shoulder pad with a non-slip inner to help keep it in position. The quick release clips allow the main strap and pad to be removed instantly. The small straps remaining on the camera body, can then be clipped together to form a carrying handle.

I got fed up with the standard Canon straps a long while back. They're unyielding, scratchy on your neck, and look cheaply made. Mostly because - they're cheaply made.
First custom strap I tried was the Lowepro one with rubberised underside for "friction" purposes, which works quite well. The two disengageable clips I wasn't so keen on - they feel like the click-engagement is a bit too slack, and although no mishap's happened the fact that I got this one as well tells you I wasn't too content with the Lowepro example.
Lowepro's stuff is well-enough manufactured but sometimes their designs aren't all they should be (IMO)
Anyway, this neoprene one won me over pretty much straight away. It's soft and very unlikely to slip. Its clips are tighter-engaging than the Lowepro's, and feel much more secure. It comes with a gunmetal coloured split ring at each strap end, which none of my cameras could use so were put aside for another day. The nylon strapping to connect to the camera loops is maybe not quite the same grade as the Lowepro, but still looks more than adequate for a hefty DSLR + lens combo. Also, when the neckstrap is unclipped the remaining nylon strap ends on the camera can arch together to give a simple handle, if so desired. This option's not there on the Lowepro.
With about 3+lbs of camera in place, it's comfortable, in that the stretchy neoprene distributes weight more evenly than a more "rigid" woven strap can possibly do, because its edges give way. It may not last, I don't know - but at present it feels like a good buy.
It does smell though! A kind of fishy-rubbery smell that I'd rather wasn't there. But that won't last... I hope.
UK Highland Photography sent it off quickly, and charged less than £1 for carriage. Unusual these days, I'm more used to being overcharged for this but NOT in this case. My third purchase from them - all have been just fine.
+ The 'comfort' part of the product description is provided by a flexible neoprene neck pad, which actually constitutes more than half of the strap's overall length. In its relaxed state, this neoprene pad measures approximately 50cm long by a maximum 5cm wide - with a material thickness of about 5mm - so it should be resilient enough for amateur/hobbyist use. The curved design means it neatly moulds itself to the contours of your neck whilst not digging in too much (as some thinner nylon straps are prone to do), whilst the rubber-textured underside does a good job of preventing the pad from slipping. As to Matin's claim for this being a 'weight reduction system' - well, the neoprene does stretch when loaded and does a good job of spreading the weight evenly around the neck; so from this point of view, I suppose there is some merit in its claim
+ The plastic Quick Release Buckles (or clips, as I prefer to call them!) seem to be of reasonable quality and appear to engage/disengage with a positive action. The nylon webbing (connecting these clips to the neoprene pad and to the camera itself, respectively) has a fairly standard width of 15mm
+ There's no camera branding emblazoned across this strap, so you don't feel as though you're being used as an unpaid billboard (and nor are you inciting envy or inviting all and sundry to 'come and rob me'!)
+ The strap comes in a choice of two different colours: black or wine
- The load-bearing capacity of these types of straps is principally dictated by two factors: the robustness of the plastic Quick Release clips, and how securely the nylon webbing (from which these clips are suspended) is stitched to the ends of the neck/shoulder pad. All of the various fittings on this strap are made of plastic; and I have to say - they all appear a little bit under-sized when compared to some other brands and rivals on the market, so that I've decided to reinforce the clips with Velcro VEL-EC60253 10mm x 5m Brand Reusable Ties - Black. Also - I'm afraid that I'm not too wild about the modest amount of stitching (and the gauge of the thread) that has been used here to attach the webbing to this particular piece of neoprene. The ensemble works, of course; but collectively, I think it all implies this strap's limitations - and its primarily a limitation with regards to the amount of weight that can be supported safely. There shouldn't be a problem with a consumer DSLR (or similar) and moderate lenses; but fitting this strap to a full-frame DSLR (with a heavier lens) would be inadvisable
- Neoprene may be comfortable, by virtue of the fact it stretches so accommodatingly; but stretchiness can also mean springiness - which is occasionally what can happen if you move at pace with the weight of a camera dangling from this strap!
- Neoprene also has a tendency to release a chemical fume - something that another reviewer has referred to as 'a fishy smell'. I've been using my Matin strap for a while now and the pong is showing no signs of abating...
In summary: This is another fine Matin photographic accessory at a very affordable price. Resist the temptation to overload it and you shouldn't encounter any problems with it in use. Recommended.
It is very well made, and is supremely comfortable too. The neoprene facing is non-slip and holds the strap in position very well when placed around the neck. The strap is about 10mm thick and made from some type of foam rubber. The nylon strap ends are adjustable, as are the smaller, detachable equipment straps. I like the thought that has gone into the detachable straps, where the smaller straps remaining fixed to the device can be clipped together to form a small carry handle - simple, but very useful.
Would I buy another? So far, yes. The strap that came with my Canon DSLR is abysmal - uncomfortable, scratchy, hard. It is going to be replaced with one of these very soon.
Edit: I like this so much I went and ordered another for my 2nd camera.
