My favorite camera is my Nikon 3100 which has multiple lenses. I love the zoom lenses that allow close-up shots of something far away, like the hot air balloons in the sky or dangerous wild animals I would never dream of getting huggably close to.
For years, I complained about my camera strap rubbing and cutting into the back of my neck. It is the one downside to carrying my "big" camera, which I prefer for the long-range capability.
My son found and gave me the perfect camera strap cover this past year for Christmas. However, it is a cover that is not made for a camera strap, nor is it promoted for that purpose. But, it is truly the best camera strap cover I have ever had.
Using a Seat Belt Cover as a Camera Strap Cover

My son gave me a furry seat belt cover to use as a camera strap cover. When I first opened it, I wondered why he was giving me a seat belt cover, but I tried to be kind and focused on how soft it was. He just smiled and said, "Mom, that is for your camera strap". Wow! I never would have guessed.
I put it on my camera strap immediately using the sewn on Velcro strips. It fit like it was made for a wide camera strap. I threw the strap over my head and let it rest on my neck. Wow again! It was amazingly soft and definitely protected my neck from the thick, hard edges of the camera strap.
My first day trip after Christmas afforded me to opportunity to wear the new strap cover in normal use. Hours later, it was still providing a soft cushion on my neck without the soreness that I previously experienced after "wearing" my camera all day.
Anyone with a camera strap knows the strap will rub against your neck constantly as you move the camera to take photos. Those straps are a necessity, but they do have a downside. They rub constantly and dig into your neck skin, almost abrading the skin, making your neck sore. If you plan to use a camera for hours, you need a protective cover.
The furry seat beat cover truly is the very best camera strap cover!
