Default How About Camera Straps?

Anyone have a camera strap that they love. I have a Nikon D700, 24-70 2.8 with the battery grip, so I have to carry a lot of weight. I got one of the smugmug free straps, which is comfortable but is awfully stretched under the weight. Original Nikon straps are just plain uncomfortable. So I need something strong and comfortable, you can't tell much just from a picture, any suggestions?

I use the Smugmug one. It supports the weight of a Canon 50D and 70-200 f/2.8L without problem.

Over the past 35 years, I've used many different straps. The Black Rapid is the most versitile and comfortable strap I've used, albeit pricier than most other straps. But, it works!

Not a strap, but I just posted a thread on a belt system. Straps are starting to bug me ALOT!!!!

That's most likely going on my wife's camera now that I have the spider system.
