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 Matte Black leather featuring natural character markings and a fine grain like texture. The underside is 3mm neoprene padding wrapped in the most supple tan upholstery leather we could find. To finish it off the accent stitching is also in matching tan.
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.
Internal 3mm neoprene padding with deluxe hand rolled edges
Longer,wider and much more comfortable than stock camera straps
Designed to be worn across your body (like a sling) not around your neck

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 Matte Black Leather which features natural markings and a final grain like texture.
The bottom is stunningly soft Tan upholstery leather with hand rolled edges for a smooth feel against your skin. The stitching is also matching in matching Tan 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.

Absolutely love this camera strap!!! It is very comfortable to walk around with my Canon 5D Mark lll . Spent 4 hours walking around and shooting at the Chicago Botanical Gardens recently and was comfortable the whole time. Also wore it as cross body, which made it easy to access the camera whenever I saw a shot. Great product.

Amazing shoulder strap, wrist strap with some issues
I absolutely love the shoulder strap. It feels very high quality, it is super comfortable, and the quick release system is a great improvement. I can and will definitely recommend getting this if a shoulder strap is what you're looking for!
My thoughts on the wrist strap are a bit different. While it's also comfortable and great to use once your hand is in it, getting your hand through the loop is a challenge; the loop tends to curl to its smallest size, and you'll need both hands to make it bigger to get your hand through, which — to me — defeats the purpose.

Excellent camera strap!
I had searched for a leather camera strap for a vacation in Europe. I was going to be four weeks in Spain, Portugal and England. I wanted as secure a strap as I could find and came across Lucky Straps about 13 days before my departure. I risked the order knowing it was tight timing to get from Australia to the US. But it arrived very quickly about 4 days before departure. Excellent shipping a service, tracked all the way.
I used the camera with the strap almost every day and nearly all day for many of them. It was comfortable all the time. Soft leather, looked good, didn’t advertise my camera make/model to the world. The easy connections to the camera body were excellent and gave a little extra security compared to many connectors. I would buy one of these straps for any camera I owned. Extremely satisfied after 4 weeks of continual camera use.

Beautiful, well-made strap
This is a really nice, well-made strap that is also very attractive. I really like the quick release design. It's quick to attach to the camera and quick to remove (and nothing stays on the camera once it's removed). It comes with that new car leather smell as well :-)

I came across Lucky Straps on insta and kept my eye on them.
Bit the bullet and grabbed the Deluxe 45 in Chestnut Brown - it is just super awesome. The quick release system is super sweet too.
