I was really disappointed with the cruddy strap I got with my Canon EOS400D. The Industry Disgrace, on the other hand, is superb. Well padded for a really heavy rig but not heavy.
About the Industry Disgrace
I am using a crumpler industry disgrace on a canon eos 5D camera with it's vertical battery grip. From wide angle to heavy telephoto L lenses on the 5D, the neck strap manages to still hold the total weight, without me to feel any strain on myself.
I had two choices for carrying a heavy camera, hire a sherpa to carry my stuff or get a better strap to relieve the neck pain. I chose the Industry Disgrace because it solved the neck pain issue. Real comfortable strap, I'm buying more for other cameras.
BEST CAMERA STRAP YET!
O.K. PEOPLES, BEEN TAKING A FEW PHOTOS IN THE PAST 30 YEARS AND THIS STRAP ROCKS! GO GET ONE OR MORE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR BUDDIES!
Camera Neck Strap is sweet!
I thought this strap looked to be a good buy and I was right. I'm very happy with the comfort it gives me when attached to my Nikon D700, which weighs over a kilo with lens.
Not an option...an essential
I've been eyeing around for a new strap that would not only feel good and work well but also look great. The Industry Disgrace is the perfect strap for me. It wraps around my neck comfortably, it makes me feel confident carrying my Canon 450D around! Get one!
Best Strap Ever!
I owned a Canon PowerShot G10 & the strap that comes with the camera really irritates my skin during photo shooting. On another hand, i am glad that i bought an Industry Disgrace as a replacement as it is comfy and lighten my camera weight. Worth the $$$

A must have for EOS 5D
By Robbie d
After shooting all day yesterday, the Industry Disgrace showed its worth. My neck was comfortable all day, I used it in both the straight forward camera in front style and the bandoleer style. Performed great all day.
I used this strap on a 7 week trip to Europe to allow me to have my 5d ready when needed. I found the neck piece a little large for my neck but it worked perfectly slung over my body. It worked much like a messenger or sling bag which meant I could have the camera further towards my back, when not using it, rather than banging against my stomach. I didn't have to change this position, just grabbed the camera, composed the shot and then slide it back when I was done. Best sling strap ever.
Heavy camera solution
By Randy Jiner
I use the Industry Disgrace on a Pentax K-1000 and a Kodak Stereo 35. I can carry around my neck or slung over my shoulder, and fatigue is never a problem. They are also nice and cool when tromping around on hot days. If you use a heavy camera, the Industry Disgrace is the solution.
awesome strap ever!!
By yeoh kian lee
WoWW!!! It just awesome and superb! Comfortable and it do reduce ur DSLR weight. With the funky colour mix, it makes the strap even more attractive..
Amazing in every way!!!
All six (6) of my camera are supported by an Industry Disgrace strap. The quality and comfort of this strap is unmatched. Go and buy one of these, maybe even six. You wont regret it.
Not just for cameras...
I have been searching the radio control industry for a decent neck strap for my RC transmitter without any luck, then I came across the Industry Disgrace, absolutely perfect for my needs of carrying a heavy transmitter around my neck for extended periods of time, thanks Crumpler.
