But with one of these camera sling straps, you can stop worrying about dropping your equipment and keep stress off your shoulders, since they're made to bear weight nicely. We've added models that work for photographers of all shapes and sizes, as well as those that are so eye-catching, you may not want to take them off. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Added the BlackRapid Curve Breathe as a top choice, since it has ample features that suit everyone from casual photographers to professionals, as well as the Think Tank model for those looking for entry-level pricing. Also selected two favorites from Peak Design, who has answered the criticism about their anchors with an updated version that should help prevent mishaps.

5. Op/Tech USA Utility

6. Think Tank V2.0

8. USA Gear Neoprene
