As in other reviews, this strap and quick release combo is just perfect for my needs. I have found from many years of business that a great product can suddenly become less great when the after sales back-up is not there. I had a problem (not quality related) and Justin fixed it immediately at some cost to himself. He’s a great business owner with a great product and deserves my recommendation. I NEVER do reviews, however, I have made this one for Lucky Straps and Justin an exception.
The selected leather quality is worthy of mention. By now, both leather layers inside and outside probably come from the same leather from New Zealand. The coarser structure of the inside has an anti-slip effect.
The stitching is very good for a machine stitch, but of course cannot be compared to a saddler's stitch by hand. That would also be a far more cost-intensive production, which certainly not everyone would like to pay for. Only the decorative stitching on the logo patches does not seem particularly robust or durable. The distances between the main seam and the edge are not exactly the same, but I'm sure most people can live with that. What is more remarkable is that different types of leather were used for the logo patches on the inside of the strap, which differ visibly in structure and brightness/colour. But that is the only flaw that really bothered me.
The Quick Release System and the anti-theft cut resistant Dyneema® webbing and a safety lock are another added value of the belt, and otherwise not easy to find.
However, the nylon material slips easily in the plastic holders and twists there easily when twisted. Perhaps a rubber coating or roughening would be an idea for possible updates to the system.
The price is quite fair for the performance offered. However, buyers from Germany or the EU should not forget that import fees are not insignificant. In my case, it was more than 40 euros and the shipment was stuck at the airport for days.
Unfortunately, I didn't have time to write a timely review. But this way I was able to write this review with the experience of many weeks, and you can also see how the belt has changed in these weeks.
Even though I was not completely satisfied, I can honestly recommend this camera belt to others, as the shortcomings of my belt are certainly an isolated case. Moreover, you will hardly find anything significantly better, unless you know and pay a professional who makes something like this in individual production.
Brought the deluxe 45 in black/Red. Was so happy with it I had to buy a second for my other cam, this time in the lovely tan colour! Bets strap I’ve ever come across. Strong, secure and so comfortable!
A happy experience right from the start to finish. From researching the right camera strap for my photography needs with my Olympus OMD mirrorless camera, receiving a quick response to some of my questions from Justin, through to receiving my two lucky camera straps in a timely manner. Very happy with the quality and feel of both camera straps. Personalisation of both straps adds another touch of class to the product. As the review title stated, I'm a very happy customer.
I have this strap connected to my Canon R5, it feels like the perfect thickness, not to chunky but solid enough that it feels comfortable to wear over my shoulder all day. The material feels and looks like the quality you expect from a strap at this price point, so it do not disappoint. This is a high quality comfortable strap and the quick clips are a nice touch.
