I have an upcoming trip to Las Vegas in a month and I'm looking for some suggestions for a strap replacement for a D3300. The stock strap is alright but after a while of use was pretty uncomfortable for me.

For both my D5200 and my D610, I use a Peak Design Slide Camera strap - they are super high quality and comfortable -- but maybe overkill for what you want.

This. I have tried the Cotton Carrier and Black Rapid designs and found them both wanting. I stayed with Peak Design strap because, along with their Camera Clip, all my carrying needs were nicely covered. Head over to their site and watch the videos; the guys have put a lot of work into carrying solutions and offer a really mature product line now.

I love Black Rapid. I have an RS-7 which has been awesome for travel since I can carry the camera at my side with the weight distributed over my shoulder. I combined it with a wrist strap for when I need a little extra security. My RS-7 has seen thousands of photos over years of travel and it's still good as new.

That said, strap comfort is very subjective it might take a couple tries before you find something you really like. In either case, getting away from the normally included neck strap can be huge for comfort.

It's hard to go wrong with the Op-Tech. Simple but reasonably priced. I have both a Pro and a Classic Strap. Be sure to buy the quick connect System Connectors. This makes it super easy to remove the bulky strap from your camera when you want to get rid of it temporarily.

The Crumpler Industry Disgrace is super nice and comfortable.

The BlackRapid straps are great if you are carrying your camera a lot, e.g. event photography.
