    I actually purchased Donna a real hippie strap for her Nikon N65 for Christmas. The strap weighs about what the camera does!

    Gee I'm still using my "hippie" straps that I bought in the 70's. It's funny whenever the young'uns see them they always want to know where they can buy them. It's nice to be hip once again lol.

    I always wonder why we put down 'hippies' and 60's and 70's. I always thought that was a good piece of history.

    We could learn a lot from our younger days. Those hippie values could save the world.

    I never got time to be a hippie, I was in the military in the early sixties and after I left I was too busy working to support my young family.

    Hippies went out of fashion when advertisers realized they couldnt sell clothes to people that made their own or just went around naked.

    Seriously, I'm too young to have been in the hippie culture, but I'd probably fit right in.

    ..and I have a cool rainbow strap for my Olympus OM2. But yes, I hate the ugly metal clips and swivels on the end. I wish it was just cording on the end.

    I have wondered the same thing.

    I'm currently using a Canon EOS strap on my Yashicamat (blasphemy!), so I'm also on the look for a "new" strap, but I haven't been able to decide what I want the strap to look like. I like the look of hippy straps though. I've also wondered what a chess board pattern would look on a strap.

    Comments about "hippie straps" aside, why on earth would you even want one of those things? Cute? Maybe, that's a matter of opinion. Retro? Don't you think that TLR is retro enough? I've got a couple of Mamiya TLRs and I've equipped both with those newfangled neoprene straps. Makes carrying those tanks around a lot easier on the neck and shoulders. Maybe I'm too pragmatic for my own good.
