I have advocated here several times for people making their own straps. It's easy and you get exactly what you want. As I was playing around with a new design last night it occurred to me that it would be fun to see what straps people have made. I'll start the thread with the wrist strap I made last night. This is a prototype, so ignore the clashing colors. It's just some cord that I had on hand. It's a no-metal design. The material is what rock climbers call "accessory cord." The small stuff is 1.5mm and the larger is 3mm. Accessory cord is available in a jillion colors, even some that glow in the dark. Look here. I will probably make a final version from parachute cord, however, because I have more of it around.

Nothing fancy at all. The loop of red cord was lashed to the heavier cord with the loop facing away from the camera end, then it was folded back over the first lashing and lashed again. Finally the lashing was soaked with super glue. It's not real pretty; I'd like to figure out something nicer. Others? What have you guys and gals made?
