Standard 53 - Matte Black
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.
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

The perfect leather for a Ninja!
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.

Got a Standard 53 in black, with quick-release ends and custom imprint (silver foil on black). Very sharp looking, and the gift was well-received. Both of us have other Lucky Straps; I have two myself. They are well made, functional, and great looking. Perfect gift for any photography buffs on your list.
I love the look and feel of this leather strap. Very comfortable when worn cross-body. The quick-release feature is really nice, and secure when locked. You will love this strap!
It may be great if it came with black string tie as a default. Great quality and design overall.
Bought this strap for the clean looks and cut resistant dyneema. I absolutely love it, the leather is soft and high quality and the fit and finish is great. Would absolutely buy another strap if I find myself in need of one.
This is a fabulous strap. Purchased to overcome an aching neck the strap has already paid dividends. No problem carrying longer lens (70-200; 100-400) on a Canon 5D iv. The strap is solidly built, a beautiful colour, and looks very impressive. Importantly it doesn't advertise my kit to all and sundry.
