    I took a strap from a freebee messenger bag and an old 1980s vintage camera strap and with the aid of a Black Rapid tripod mount, created a simple and effective carry solution for my E-P2.

    It works just like the Black Rapid (I own one for my DSLR) it just isn't as elegant. I left two sliders on the strap so I can hang a water bottle or other extra if I want.

    Perhaps this should have been posted in Pimp-your-pen.

    No problem, I just hoped to get a response. Mine is made from a very wide strap with a simple rubber-like shoulder pad, yours must be awesome with that strap, my wife has an Industry Disgrace and loves it.
