Can anyone help me identify the make/model (?) of the neck strap seen in these videos:

Joe Temperley has it here:

and it looks like Jody Espina has one here:

I've never seen one of these before and am curious if anyone recognizes it.

Thanks!

It's a Brancher. It appears the leather neckband is a bit different than mine, but the other features are exactly the same.

They're a little pricey, and even after a break-in period, which makes the strap form a little more comfortably, it still rides up on your neck a little more than I wish it did. It is more comfortable than a Rico, although I tend to like the Rico's pigtail connector better than the hook. The Brancher's hook can easily become an unhooked catastrophe if you sit down for a few minutes to take a load off, and then stand up, without checking to see it's still in place.
