Dual Shoulder Camera Neck Strap     
Quick Release dual shoulder neck strap with standard threaded mount; not sure on the overall quality, but the price seems right. States normally  $99, betting that is inflated. Eligible for Amazon prime, so in for 2 (one as a gift). Hoping it's a decent stocking stuffer...
Enjoy!

Update: Price now up to $13.71. I received both of mine, felt compelled to report back on quality - especially with the red this post received. (4 stars on Amazon; 84 of the 154 reviews peg it as 5 star)

One set came in plastic display quality packaging, the other set came on the display board, but no plastic. Unless the metal has hidden flaws, I am pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of the clasps and hardware. Having said that I am likely to have a secondary securing method (believe it or not I use fishing swivel / snap leaders; rated to 15 lbs., coated wire but supple), simply because I have had the factory canon strap give up the ghost; while I was on concrete; fortunately it *just* cost me a filter, as my 70-200 2.8L hit *just* right. This has secondary mount points I can clip to, or I can always clip to the factory mounts on the camera.The fishing leaders add almost no weight, and still allow for portability / flexibility, and I am a bit overly cautious. I can’t see where you would go wrong at this price, but to each their own. Is it worth $99 -> no way... Is it worth ~$30; probably – especially when considering it’s a bit of a specialty piece of equipment. 

Anyway -> hope it helps someone - should make a nifty stocking stuffer…

Reviews are sketchy. I wouldn't trust my camera hanging from it.

I dislike their inflated normally prices....when 10 stores have it for under $25
