It isn’t often something so simple as a camera neck strap can be re-invented but that’s exactly what Crumpler did with the “CRUMPLER INDUSTRY DISGRACE”.
Rather than make a strap that fights, aggravates and chafes your neck Crumpler decided to develop a camera neck strap that comfortably fit and was contoured to fit your neck properly at the angle of a camara hanging of your neck. This approach eliminates the soreness created from unequal pressure. The design of the Crumpler The Industry Disgrace allows you to forget you are wearing anything around your neck. Another feature of the Crumpler The Industry Disgrace is a wide pad that distributes the load on much more of your neck than any other strap currently available.
Now here’s the best part. The Crumpler The Industry Disgrace only cost $30-$35. I bought mine here.
Here’s Crumplers specifications and description.
Most camera straps try to re-shape the back of your neck. Not this ergonomic puppy. Weightlifter wide, thick like a weather girl and with a double layer neoprene neck cushion, its body-hugging contours distribute the mass of your camera evenly across your shoulders.
No irritation. No scarification. Constructed of flamed polypropylene, 900D, Air Mesh, and dual layer nylon-reinforced PVC, it’s soft where it matters but strong where it counts.
The neoprene neck cushion wicks away perspiration for evaporation into the sweatasphere through twin exhausts.
ANTI SLIP LINER
Embossed anti-slip rubber logo doesn’t just appease the marketing honchos, it stops the strap sliding around on your neck or shoulder.
DOUBLE LENGTH ADJUSTMENT
Dual upper and lower adjustable tri-glide buckles let your camera assume every position from gangsta thigh hugger to Harry High Pants.
SUPER STRENGTH WEBBING
Tapering from extra wide double weave at your end, to camera eyelet size at the business end, the super strength one piece tubular flamed polypropylene webbing keeps a vise like grip on your camera.
DUAL ACCESSORY LOOPS
Left and right reinforced accessory loops let you attach other photo-gidgetry and gadgetry for instant access.
LANYARD SLIDE THROUGH
Carrying a lanyard as well as your camera? Thread it through the space between the neoprene neck cushion and the outer liner. Who said two into one doesn’t go?
As mentioned elsewhere I bought the little woman a NIKON D7000 for her birthday. As part of that gift I bought her the Crumpler The Industry Disgrace neck strap. After a few weeks of owning the camera she gave me a call and said something along the lines of “You know I love my new camera but I really cant believe how nice this strap is. You know how I hate ANYTHING touching my neck”
The above statement was the most glowing compliment she ever gave anything that didn’t have four legs and fur.
I encourage you to try a Crumpler The Industry Disgrace for yourself and report back here with a thank you.
