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.

Camera Sizes Classic 40


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!  

Personalisation Options

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

Lucky Camera Straps Personalised Leather Embossing for Photography Gift

Leather Description

The Nubuck finish of this awesome Desert Tan leather has just the right combination of slip and grip making it perfect for using across your body like a sling. It stays put when the camera is by your side but is only a second away from being pulled up to your eye as you navigate bustling markets in South East Asia or a crowded downtown wedding reception!
Our lightest brown, this leather almost looks pre-faded and looks great with anything from a Tuxedo to Blue Jeans. Very similar to our previous ‘Classic Brown’ leather only slightly lighter.
It’s super soft right out of the box, but will continue to soften with use until it’s so comfortable that you don’t know where your body ends and the strap begins.

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.

Classic 40 Camera Strap

Really nice, good quality leather, great build quality. I love it. It arrived to the Czech republic very quickly.

Beatiful Camera Strap

I've bought several Lucky heavy duty cotton straps for my two D5s and they have been outstanding. I was worried about if they were leather they would be to stiff and would slid of my shoulders. I've added a Nikon Zf to my tool kit which is a absolutely stunning camera and surprisingly heavy. The supplied factory camera strap it came with was unsatisfactory. I've decided to get the Classic 40 Camera Strap - Chestnut Brown. Its the best camera strap I've every used- perfect for a solid small camera- its so soft and moulds around my body like a glove and the quick release clips are brilliant. Wishing I had got them for my D5s-next time.

Love love love it!

Started my Camera/photography journey a month ago and decided to order a short length strap. After being in the field a lot more with my stock canon strap (similar length to short Lucky strap) I released it wasn’t for me..I quickly contacted Lucky to see if it was possible for a long length Classic 40 - as the shorts were on back order. Got a response within the hour saying Long was in stock and they’d get one ready for me. It was embossed with my photography name and shipped that afternoon, arrived today and love the embossing, the quality and the service from Luckystraps, I can’t wait to take this out!

What a beautiful Fathers Day present we were able to gift my Dad. Beautiful leather (that leather smell! 😍), nicely presented, the monogramming looks wonderful, thank you for a quality product, that has very quickly been put to good use on its first holiday - sightseeing the little mermaid in Copenhagen! Very happy recipient!
