This stealthy Matte Black Leather is our newest find and we are so excited with this new range! The leather has a very fine surface grain which is what gives it the unique Matte texture. It's extremely durable, starting off life a little firmer than our Vintage Black leather but wearing in quickly and becoming super comfy.
Choose from 10 accent stitching colours to complement your gear. The stitching options can add a pop of colour while staying with the classic look of genuine black leather. This leather is mostly a smooth finish but will feature a few small unique markings on every strap.
Now also available with our very own custom engineered quick release system so you can rapidly attach, adjust, detach and even swap camera straps during shoots.

Details and Sizing
Will it fit me?
The Standard Length is little longer than a stock strap, perfect for using as a traditional neck strap or hanging off one shoulder. Also works as a cross body strap for most people up to about 170cm (5'7" tall).
Our Long Length straps are 25cm longer than our Standard Length which makes them better for wearing across the body for people over 170cm (5'7") tall.
This strap will work with almost any camera, especially larger DSLR setups with heavy lenses. It attaches in the same way as the stock strap that came with your camera, so basically any camera that has a set of 10mm webbing slots or rings will work! Click here for more info.
How strong is it?
We have designed these straps to be worn all day with the heaviest pro DSLR setups so you can rest assured they are strong enough. If you are looking for a weight I have attached 50kg (115lb) of weight to a camera without the strap breaking, but I hope your camera is not that heavy!
Any of our full leather camera straps can be personalised with a name or even a logo!
The personalisation is achieved by hot pressing the letters into the leather resulting in a timeless look and feel.
You choose the embossing options on the product page as you are adding the strap to your cart.
Choice of three fonts - Block, Times or Cursive
Multiple Colour/Finish options
Prices starting from just AUD$20 for initials only
A smooth, Matte finish is what makes our newest leather so unique. It is very strong, a little firmer to begin with but then softening up nicely with just a few uses. The matte finish is great in adverse weather so this is a great choice for adventurous photographers.
This leather does feature small round marks and some scars, which on the smooth finish will stand out a little begin with but as the strap softens they will blend in to the overall look.
Standard 53 Design
This design was our first camera strap and is by far our most popular strap of all time! The 'Standard 53' is wider, longer and handmade from soft leather so that you can carry your DSLR all day without getting sore.
Unlike our Simple range, the body of the Standard 53 is actually two pieces of leather which is glued back-to-back and stitched together for a lifetime of durability. We then add our embossed end pieces which are also glued and stitched to connect the 10mm webbing ends to the main body.

I do landscape photography, mostly in Western Australia. Sometimes to get to the best spot we walk considerable distances. To limit the load (weight and items), I carry only the camera with the selected lens attached. Spare battery and filters in trouser pockets!
This is where the broad and long strap really makes a difference as you can carry the camera and lens assembly securely, yet easy to use when spotting something interesting to photograph, while en route.
Great strap, excellent quality, should have purchased it sooner. Thanks to Justine and staff.

I love this camera strap
I was looking for a perfect quick release system and now I found it in Australia. Plus this wonderful handmade leather strap. Perfect for my heavy camera/lens combination and comfortable to wear at all times. Look and feel are great. The handling with the long length strap worn across the body is perfect. And the personalisation with my name looks great. This is really a perfect piece of craftsmanship from Australia. I am very happy with it. Many thanks to Justin and his staff.

A wonderful quality product!
I was looking for a solution to carry my EOS 90D with a 100-400 mounted to it. I'm 5'9" and wanted a little longer strap so I could wear it sling style and access the camera quickly and comfortably. This exceed expectations! I searched out Lucky Camera Straps on YouTube and found a video called "Most Comfortable Way to Carry a Heavy Camera and Lens | Lucky Camera Straps". In it, Justin the owner of Lucky Camera Straps shows you how to mount one end of the strap to a Arca-Swiss plate equipped with a camera strap loop. Game changer. I could wear this set up all day long. It's super comfortable and gives you quick draw access to your camera. I liked this strap so much I just ordered the Slim 40 long quick release for my EOS R. Thanks Lucky Camera Straps for making such a quality product that was well thought out. Lucky Camera Straps for life!

I have purchased a black with green stitching strap for my wife's christmas present.
She loves the way in sits on her shoulders without rubbing.
The straps is made of quality leather and the quick release
catch is a great idea.
Would highly recommend to anyone thinking about buying one.
I will purchase again.
