Shoulder strap

I have an Sun Shooter shoulder strap which is reinforced with metal to prevent theft by cutting the strap. It works but the shoulder padding keeps sliding around so it is not on my shoulder, which is a pain.

I am looking at a Prowithlin Camera Strap with Safety Tether Mounting Plate, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Prowithlin-.../dp/B073D75YKC.
Anyone used one of these or could advise on a decent shoulder strap? I do have a neck strap which is OK with a small lens, but when I have a big one on, 40-150 or 300 I would like something a bit more substantial.

Re: Shoulder strap

I use two:

OP/TECH USA

and

BlackRapid I find this very comfortable with two cameras but they have straps for single cameras: BlackRapid website

You need a "PITT" attachment:

I just use double sided tape to keep my one in place.

Re: Shoulder strap

Had same sliding problem with my Black Rapid. Bought a length of sling webbing and clips from local climbing supply shop and made my own.

Unfortunately, my strap doesn't seem to have the clip for this extra strap.
