The Classic 40 is one of our latest designs, it sits right in-between our Slim 30 and Standard 53 making it the perfect size for almost any photographer and a range of camera sizes.
This camera strap is crafted out of our stunning Dark Brown Mocha leather. It is a top grain roebuck leather similar to our Desert Tan so the texture is soft to touch and has just the right amount of grip. It will age wonderfully and get super comfortable as the strap wears in.
Like every strap in our range this one is available with our very own custom engineered Quick Release System so you can rapidly attach, adjust, detach and even swap camera straps during shoots.
Quick Release System also features anti-theft cut resistant Dyneema® webbing and a safety lock for secure travel
Strong enough for all handheld cameras, strength tested to over 50kg (115lb)
Two lengths available and both are adjustable to fine tune your fit
Great all round size for most cameras from small mirrorless to large medium format kits
Australian Made with careful hands in our hometown factory (Bendigo, Victoria)
Fits almost every camera ever made using a 10mm slot or ring
Personalise it with your name or logo!
Model is 167cm/5'6" tall and is using a Regular Length Strap Please Note: Does not include camera and lens, camera strap only

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
***Please note, this leather can feature some very noticeable markings which occur naturally and really add to the character of each individual strap. Check out the product images for some examples of what they could look like***
This new Dark Brown Mocha Leather (from may 2021) is now sourced in New Zealand and offers the durability and comfort needed for a lifetime of photography adventures. Both sides of the strap are now made from the same wonderful roebuck finish leather, providing the perfect amount of slip and grip while out shooting.
When you take the strap out of the box it may feel a little stiff, but don't worry in just a few uses it will begin to soften up and become super comfortable, while also developing a unique character of subtle markings making your strap one of a kind
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.

While you might want to look like a brand-slave or a wally with the makers name (and maybe even the camera model) stitched onto the standard, skinny camera strap, remember that the camera company is just that - they're not strap makers. Instead go for a cool and much more comfortable strap from Lucky.
I went for the 40mm wide, extra length leather model (with quick-release fittings) for my Sony RX10 and it feels like the camera has been on a diet and lost half its body weight. The supple leather cr*ps all over the synthetic factory original for comfort - no more digging in around the neck.
It's simple - get a Lucky!

Amazing product and customer service!
First time buying from lucky straps and im very impressed by the quality of the products and the customer service! I had an issue with my product and Justin was really responsive and solved my issue straight away. Very happy with everything! :)

The leather is very soft and because of the smooth underside, the long version glides perfectly over the upper body. And the Quick Release Ends are your best development. Thank you and keep up the good work.

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my other half, with personalised embossing to really make it hers. The strap is gorgeous in green, has a fantastic tactile feel and it has been used daily since she opened it on Christmas day. The quick-release buckles are secure and easy to use, making swaps between this and the wrist strap bought at the same time really user friendly.
