DSLR Straps

I know we had a strap convo recently, but I wanted to know if anyone has a recommendation on wrist straps? I have noticed that when I use my camera for work or when I know that I will be taking a lot of photos, I tend to wrap the neck strap around my wrist. I would love to get a wrist strap for this reason. Any particular brands/models you can suggest?
Thanks!

I use a wrist strap. No particular brand on it. It was around $19.00

the key feature to look for is a sturdy base that screws into the binding post for your tripod, then has a heavy leather strap that goes round your wrist and attaches to the right camera strap ring.

When I carried a dSLR I wrapped the neck strap around my wrist, then when I switched to u4/3 I bought a real wrist strap. Canon's WS-20 is a good one as long as you don't mind the big white "Canon" letters on it.
The tripod mount ones don't work for me since I use a RRS L-plate.

I have the Clik Elite. It is a great product in my opinion.

I have an OpTech wrist strap which I bought on Amazon. I used it with my Nex 7. Its a neoprene strap and its really comfortable.

I just saw that BlackRapid has a wrist strap for around $20. I've got BlackRapid RS-7 strap, so I may pick up the wrist strap because they both use the integrated connector. Has anyone used this wrist strap?
