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.
More detailed info on choosing a strap here.
Will it fit my camera?
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

Pre-softened, featuring natural markings and texture, this full grain black leather produces some of the most comfortable camera straps in the world. This is not a boring, flat black leather with a machine perfect finish. You can see real texture in this natural product, plus it will only get better with age!
It is pre-softened so straight out of the box it will feel great, and then as you use it the leather will soften even more and take on it’s own unique character.
Classic 40 Design
For a while now customers have been asking if they can get the construction and colours of the Standard 53 and Slim 30 in something the size of our Simple 40. Introducing the Classic 40, our goldilocks strap size! Together these three straps (Slim 30, Classic 40, Standard 53) along with our Classic Wrist Straps form the new Classic Range.
Unlike our Simple range, the body of every strap in the Classic Range is actually two pieces of leather which are glued back-to-back and stitched together for a lifetime of durability and comfort. We then add our embossed end pieces which are also glued and stitched to connect the 10mm webbing ends to the main body.

I love this strap. It really is made of superb materials and the quick release system works well. No dangly bits!
I chose the 40mm and its perfect for my Olympus E-M1 which is a medium size camera.
It looks great, feels nice and is classy.
I use a Nikon D750 and with my heaviest lens the total weight is almost 1.9kg. The Classic 40 handles the weight very well. It is comfortable on my shoulders. The leather is sturdy yet soft so when the strap does come in contact to bare skin it is not scratchy. The quick release is perfect. While I like having it since I do a lot of long exposure photography my concern was whether it would be secure. The design of the LuckyStraps quick release is ingenious. The locking mechanism works in the way that it is both easy yet secure. The workmanship of the leather is beautiful, not to mention the awesome range of colours to choose from.
Great quality strap! Feels very secure, long enough to have the camera around to my side while walking. Very nice colouring and all round feel!
That is how much I love this strap. I need an excuse to pick up a few more in different colors! The quality is unbeatable and the patina is really starting to pick up the more I use it. Use it with a Nikon D850 and heavy lens and it works great. The only thing better than the strap is the customer service. My experience has to be in the top 3 best customer service experiences I've had. If you are on the fence about purchasing a strap, pull the trigger. You most certainly won't regret it!
Love the colour and the softness of the leather - very comfy around my neck. The quick release system is great :)
