Designed for adventure photographers who wear their cameras sling-style across the chest, the straight Voyager S strap is also the perfect upgrade for photographers needing relief from those skinny, stock straps. Made of soft, breathable neoprene material reinforced with nylon webbing and coated with a non-slip backing; it also includes the extra padding needed for extended hikes or carrying heavier camera equipment. Two quick-release buckles make switching from one camera body to another fast and easy while double ladder-locks securely connect the strap to the camera for maximum stabilization. Includes a detachable memory card wallet giving quick access to cards.
* Most digital and film SLR cameras
* Binoculars or other optical devices

A tad more comfortable than the "C" strap
Doesn't adhere to all fabrics
My Voyager "C" straps (the curved variant) were getting a bit tatty so I decided to replace them with the "S" variant... I'd has some issues with the "C" straps staying in place.
It seems that the curve of the strap was counter-productive with certian loads i.e. it wasn't allowing all of the grip material on the underside to connect with whatever I was wearing, thus allowing some slippage from time to time.
The Voyager "S" strap has ample padding and its straight line design means that the weight of the load is evenly distributed. There's enough flex in the upper strap that even heavier cameras (think a D3 with 70-200 attached) don't cause any discomfort.
A handy memory card wallet (detachable) sits on one side of the strap and allows for quick access for two spare cards up to standard CF size. I've found that the best way to insert and remove them is side on.
Again, the quick release buckles are a boon for when storing/packing your cameras or for removing them when you don't need one - particularly when working with a tripod or monopod. No more straps getting in the way of the eyepiece of lens at inopportune moments!
