Default Sling Strap - Which one? Where to purchase? Optech Sling Adapter?

Hello all,
I have purchased a Optech pro loop strap and while I am happy overall with the purchase compared to the stock strap, I am interested in getting sling strap. I was looking at the Optech Sling Adapter. Has anyone got one of these?

What other recommendations?

Optech would be my pick. It is one of the most comfortable ones on the market.

I have one of their for my old eos1, as it is a bit heavier camera. And it was very comfortable. On my T1i, it is so light that I just use their neoprene camera strap. But knowing optech, it will be comfortable. The design is almost like the older one I got 4 years ago. Just a bit updated.

You are talking about the connector system, correct?
