I’ve had the Peak Design Slide strap for a few years now, having bought it as part of the Kickstarter campaign for the original Everyday Messenger bag.
The Slide is a large neck/shoulder strap made from seatbelt-like material, with big, easy-to-grab, toggles on both side that slide easily to cinch the strap shorter or longer. Just over 4 years in there is a bit of play in the the slide toggles, but not too bad.
Having been using mostly the small Fujifilm X system for the years I’ve had the strap, it hasn’t been my main camera strap (it’s too big and would be overkill) but has served plenty of time on my medium format film cameras, a short time as a handy method of carrying a tripod between scenes—just attach a PD Arca plate to the strap and clip that into the tripod head for carry—and more recently on the medium format Fujifilm GFX 50S, where it matches up perfectly.
Here’s a sample image taken with the Peak Design Slide Summit Edition – Lassen Red:
