The Black Rapid Strap RS-5

Black Rapid StrapS RS5 Black Fabric, Layered Design, Front Media Pocket, with ConnectR-2 and FastenR-2
You're probably not going to see a whole lot of reviews from me primarily because my photography budget is pretty thin.  On the rare occasions where I do introduce something new to the arsenal, however, you can be sure I'll share my opinions - good or bad. 
That being said, Ken gives Black Rapid's RS-5 camera strap two thumbs up :) (how's that for a review).  The thing I really like about it is that it hangs across your chest like a messenger bag so your camera is positioned at your hip rather than bouncing around your neck.  It's incredibly comfortable and easy to disconnect.  It comes with an eye that screws into the bottom of your camera or, if you're like me and leave the mounting plate for your ballhead attached, you can secure it directly to your mounting plate.  The strap itself sports an incredible amount of storage that might allow you to leave the gear bag at home.  Mine holds an extra battery, extra memory cards, my wireless remote, micro fiber cloth, my phone, business cards... you get the idea.
