What camera straps do you have on your Pentax?

What camera straps do you have on your Pentax?

For me, I recently bought a Blackrapid RS Sport with a Blackrapid Arca Swiss tripod plate. The Blackrapid Arca Swiss plate allows me to unclamp the camera in a few seconds to mount on the tripod and a couple of seconds to de-mount from the tripod and quickly clamp the tripod plate. Very convenient.

It says Kyocera Japan on it. I stole it off an old Yashica film slr from the 80's. It is thin, light, and has a rubber neck pad that doesn't absorb sweat. It's great!

I use a homemade wrist-strap, basically a loop of webbing, attached to grip side lug, and a Peak Designs Capture Clip for carry.

Op Tech USA ""Envy" on K-7
Original Pentax strap on K-5 IIs
Have just ordered a second Op Tech USA ""Envy" for the K-5 IIs. The OEM strap came undone last week and I almost dropped the camera.
I find the Op Tech strap to be very comfortable and provide sufficient distance for me to view the camera controls and screen comfortably

With one exception they all say Pentax or Asahi somewhere. Most came in 'grab bags' of cameras and lenses I bought to get a lens or camera. A few times I specifically bought the strap (LX and MZ-S straps). I once bought a small used Domke bag that had a very nice detachable canvas strap with little gripper buds on the inside. That's on a film camera.

i don't use arca swiss plates so that detachable wouldn't work for me. I definitely would not want to attach the strap to the QR plate, so prefer to use the lugs.

Homemade from nylon webbing. When I first got the camera, I just threw this together and never have found a reason to do anything different. I had some 1" black webbing around, used a hot knife to neck it down to fit in the tabs on the camera.

I just purchased one of these today. I splurged for the blue version.

I like it quite a bit so far. I couldn't decide between the PD Slide and the Clutch, but figured a strap would be more useful for a wide range of uses than just the hand grip.
