Camera Straps Made in USA

Details

Stowed Safely, to Shooting Freely

Go from having your camera securely cinched up, for easy mobility — to slung low, for unhindered portrait and landscape shooting — just by pulling the F1’s adjustment tab.

Instead of tacking-on over-engineered hardware, it’s made from the same strong, flexible, lightweight fabric as the strap — plus a simple yet secure sliplok that won’t budge under load, no matter how heavy your camera.

One Strap That’s Up for Anything

To be clear, the F1 functions beautifully as a neck strap, but it’s much more versatile than that.

Quickly lengthen the F1 to use as a cross-body/sling strap, or loop the webbing through the D-rings to make a wrist strap — all without carrying (or remembering to carry) extra stuff.

We’ve heard tales of photographers literally tying their F1’s onto things, and attaching the D-rings or adjustment tab to carabiners for peace-of-mind. Use your imagination — F1 can take it!

Light, Strong & Built Tough in USA

A lot of camera straps are stuck in the past … unnecessarily bulky, made from traditional low-tech materials and metal hardware.

We take a different approach, using materials found in modern expedition gear, where strength-to-weight ratio is critical, and exposure to the elements is a given.

If you’re looking for a faux-heirloom made of leather and steel, you’ll have to look elsewhere — because we won’t make camera straps that rust, rot or crack after a downpour (especially for today’s weather-sealed cameras).

Sleek Where it Matters Most

Not all cameras are the same, so we’ve got two optimized mounting options, reducing bulk around the hand when possible.

For cameras that require a “traditional” flat mount, we use hardware developed by aerospace engineers, for cameras being sent to … you guessed it … space. And to tidy up the loose ends, we developed a streamlined installation method.

The barely-there lug mount version (shown here) comes with our proprietary Standard Split Rings, made from a steel and magnesium alloy that’s 25% stronger than stainless steel. It’s almost like holding a naked camera — but much more secure.

How-To

Convert Your F1 to a Wrist Strap

Quickly changing your F1 camera strap from a long sling-style strap, to a traditional-length neck strap needs no explanation. Converting it to a wrist strap is less obvious — until you see how easy it is! Don’t bother grabbing the popcorn, because this is the shortest video in human history. *Not applicable to the F1ultralight.

Install a Lug Mount F1, or Split Rings

*If you’re just installing Simplr Split Rings, not an F1 camera strap, you can skip straight to 1:07 in this video. Mounting a camera strap with split rings is just like putting a key on a keychain — but instead of a key, it’s a camera. Situate your F1 so the adjustment tab is in […]

Install a Flat Mount F1

The flat mount version of our F1 camera strap installs similarly to a “traditional” camera strap, with a significant difference — the sliplok and keeper are used only for installation, not to adjust the length of the camera strap. Situate your F1 so the adjustment tab is in front of your body when the camera strap […]

  1. My search for the perfect strap continues

    Jeff

    I really wanted to like this strap. The craftsmanship and buying experience was great. I had a few issues with the design though. The material used was rougher and more coarse than seat belt material which feels and slides across your body better. When ordering, I was drawn to the use of one adjustment point instead of 2. In practice, I had it’s flaws. I found it somewhat difficult to shorten the strap. Also, the adjustment point would often fall behind my shoulder making it difficult to adjust further. It’s location also constantly caught on a backpack I was wearing while hiking. Last, the implementation of the hand strap fell just short. It’s a GREAT idea. It did work well in practice too. Was surprised me was the sizing of the D rings that you feed the strap through for this configuration. They were smaller enough than the strap that it wasn’t seamless to slide it through. The strap had to be folded over ever so slightly to fit. I found this difficult to do while holding my camera with the other hand. All of these complaints are rather minor but for a $45 piece of nylon, they should have been tested and considered. That said, there are clearly plenty of people that didn’t have such issues so maybe it’s just me.
