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
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.
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.

Standard 53 Vintage not only looks and feels like a quality product, it is 100% in front of its competition when carrying heavy cameras. Great quality, excellent QD clips and Aussie made, can't beat that.
Strap is very well made, no loose threads or any other blemishes. No breakin period at all, felt comfortable first time I used it.
I bought it for a large lens, Canon 400mm 2.8, that weights around 8 pounds and is usually used on a tripod. On the tripod the strap is a distraction fotr me and the birds I am photographing so removing the strap is preferable to wrapping it around the camera. The ease of this quick release system is wonderful. The few times I need it on the lens for transport or other reasons it is a snap to put on and take off. I plan to purchase the long version for some of my other great white lens.
I recommend it highly.
I only wish it came in a medium length too since with the heavy lenses position on my hip is quite sensitive to length and there is a gap in lengths available between the two available lengths.
Found this beautiful product on Instagram. Took a chance and ordered one. Beautifully crafted! Soft and supple leather. Got the long size and it’s amazingly comfortable. The embossing is well done and I couldn’t be happier with the strap! Bravo !
I love the strap, it is better quality than I had anticipated. Nice and thick, doesn't dig in and slides nicely. I've worn my heavy dslr for long periods without pain or discomfort.
When moving around my camera hangs nicely at my hip, which is hard to find in leather straps being tall with curves. Absolutely awesome and exceeds what I had imagined having only used stock straps in the past.
Thanks Justin for helping me out with my choice, and for keeping in contact through the delivery slow down during the pandemic. I'll definitely be getting another when I get a back up camera for my kit!
Perfection and class
Absolutely perfect; I ordered a personalized 53 long and my order was finish and shipped in a promt manner, and arrived on time in the U.S in time for my first gig with my new camera.
The quality is top notch: stitching, embossing, and the leather are all first rate. There are 2 types of people when it comes to leather those that buy it and use it patiently waiting for it to break in, and those that buy it and beat it into submission like it owes you money. I'm the second type; you learn fast what the quality is when your twisting your new leather good into a small ball and stopping on it. The quality of these straps is fantastic! Truly, I cant say it enough! My strap is soft and comfortable as a worn baseball glove and looks brand new still dispite the inflected abuse. That's good leather.
