Good minimalist strap"I use this strap in conjunction with my other Peak Design products: the Cuff wrist strap, Clutch grip, and Camera Clip. When I get tired of one mode, I switch to another. The one big advantage of this strap is that it is indeed minimalist: it's easy to detach and you can roll it up to put in your pocket or in a Zip-lock sandwich bag. The disadvantage is that it is quite narrow, so that even a mirrorless camera hung off your should for several hours becomes uncomfortable. Because of this, I am considering purchasing the wider Slide Lite strap.
Using this strap in the leash or stabilizer mode can come in handy, though I seldom use it in that configuration."

Great for mirrorless or point and shoots"This is a great strap to slap onto your mirrorless or point and shoots. I would not recommend using this for a heavier DSLR. A DSLR, grip and long lens would put too much pressure onto the neck as there is no extra neck padding.
The strap itself is made from a similar material as seatbelts which makes it easy to slip around, when shooting it's a simple tug to get at your camera if you're keeping it crossed on your chest.
I am a bit weary of the durability of the strap. From my observation the strap edges may fray over time. I could be wrong though as longer term tests are needed.
For the price and design, it's well worth the $40 price tag."
