Deluxe 45 Padded Camera Strap - Vintage Black/Teal
Regular price$195.00 AUD
If you have been looking for the ultimate camera strap, the Deluxe 45 is it! This range is based on the strap we designed with Canon Australia for the launch of the R5 except now with Quick Release and Anti-Theft functionality and available in 7 colour-ways.
The latest mirrorless camera systems have a unique challenge of being more compact and lightweight but also becoming quite heavy when paired with fast lenses and video accessories. Our Deluxe 45 solves this problem by keeping the strap to 45mm (just over 1.5") width but adds internal padding for extra comfort.
The top is our pre-softened Vintage Black leather with unique textures and natural character markings. The underside is 3mm neoprene padding wrapped in a beautiful teal upholstery leather which is super supple. To finish it off the accent stitching is also in matching teal which looks amazing.
The rolled edges feel great against your skin and the padding provides all day carrying comfort when using the latest mirrorless bodies with heavy pro-level lenses.

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
The top of this strap is made from our pre-softened Vintage Black which features natural markings and textures.
The underside of the strap is wrapped in this beautiful Teal upholstery leather which ads a pop of colour to your strap and is also super soft and supple! The stitching is also matching in matching Teal thread.
This strap will last a lifetime and only develop more character and comfort with age.
Deluxe 45 Design
Our new Deluxe 45 range is suitable for any photographer that wants the most comfortable camera strap on the planet. It's origins are in the Canon RF system but the strap we have created is perfect for all of the new mirrorless systems that have heavy lenses available (Sony A7, Fuji GFX, Nikon Z etc).
When Canon Australia approached us to design a strap for the launch of the new R5 in 2020 we knew it had to be the best strap we had ever made. This design is something that we had on the drawing board but the unique features of the latest mirrorless systems refined it into the ultimate camera strap for discerning photographers.
We needed a strap that was narrower than our Standard 53 as many find it a bit too bulky for mirrorless cameras, but we still wanted it to be super comfortable when adding a battery grip and heavy lens. We achieved this by making a 40mm top (same as our Classic 40) and adding 3mm of internal neoprene padding and wrapping it in super soft upholstery leather as the bottom piece.
By using leather instead of just neoprene with avoid the dread 'gear bounce' while still achieving the highest level of comfort possible.

Fabulous. Very comfortable and well made. Can carry a GFX all day with this and looks great now - and I expect the leather will look really good as it ages. Oh, and they got it from Australia to the Uk in about a week. Great service.

Love it!!! Makes carrying my Canon R5 more comfortable during all day hikes.

Absolutely love this strap!
I got this strap for a case after loving the strap I got for my camera. It is perfect! Comfortable, looks great, and the customization is a plus! You will not be disappointed.

Just what I needed!
Beautifully made comfortable strap. I needed this wide strap for my analogue Pentax 67, a big heavy medium format camera. Out in the field, a thinner strap just won't fit the bill comfort wise. I purchased the longer 55cm version so I could sling the camera across my chest and just lift it to my eye to shoot. Ideal for the way I work. Thanks Lucky Straps, couldn't be happier!

The Deluxe 45 padded strap is awesome. Just enough padding for all day comfort but to thick to prevent flexibility. I’m using it on my Nikon D4s and it’s perfect. I’ve also switched it to the Nikon D810 thanks to the quick release system. I love this product so much I have a “Lucky Strap” for all my cameras. The wrist straps are great too.
