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.

Wired: Fujifilm X-T5 Review

Wired magazine has posted a wonderfully thorough review of the Fujifilm X-T5, referring to it as “…the best camera the company has ever made.” Nestled within this article, reviewer Scott Gilbertson reveals his preferred camera strap: “I prefer minimal straps like the Simplr F1, but for something included with the camera, Fuji’s strap is actually […]

Flemming Bo Jensen: Live Music + Fujifilm X-T5

In this official Fujifilm video, Flemming Bo Jensen, concert photographer extraordinaire, discusses how the X-T5 helps him capture the spirit and excitement of live music — while photographing Copenhagen-based singer/producer Saveus. “A camera is a tool for me. It needs to function purely on muscle memory, and become invisible.” Flemming is a long-time Simplr product abuser […]

Bert Stephani: Fujifilm X-T5

In this video, Bert Stephani discusses his love of portraiture, and shares his thoughts on the new Fujifilm X-T5. Bert has numerous Simplr straps, but the one seen attached to his X-T5 is a castor gray F1. *It’s worth noting that our recommendation for an X-T5 would generally be a lug mount F1 — but Bert is tall […]

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 — but converting it to a wrist strap is less obvious. Watch this video to see how easy it is! Shorten the strap all the way. Loop it through the D-rings. There is no step 3. […]

Install a Lug Mount F1 Series Strap, 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 Lug Mount F1 or F1ultralight so the […]

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 […]

  2. Very Nice!

    MikeL

    This is the first Simplr strap I have owned. I bought this strap for an Olympus E-M1-3 and it’s a perfect match. Very minimalist, which for me is the best feature of the strap. Super lightweight, no bling that screams “here I am, look at me”. I have a few other cameras, and there is a better than even chance they will be getting an upgrade soon. I think the F1 is an out-and-out home run.

  3. best ever

    darrinS

    i’ve been a camera enthusiast for many years. i thought i had tried them all. this is my first simplr f1. i just love how easy it is to adjust the length and the ability to convert into a hand strap. i’ve been using mine as a hand strap mainly. it is simple and perfect. my only gripe is the small split rings were impossible for me to attach to my fuji camera. i ended up replacing them with slightly larger ones.

  4. Paul

    I think this is the best camera strap, end of discussion. It actually reminds me of a rifle sling (Vickers Tactical) where you can adjust it’s length on the fly. The fit and finish is also excellent, not to mention the customer service. Absolutely excellent!

  5. Exactly what it's supposed to be

    Illia K. from Ukraine

    It’s simple, functional, light and high quality.
    I was looking for something as light and as simple as my oem Sony strap, but with adjustable length and without bright “sony” logo.
    I was dissatisfied with Peak design slide lite – because it’s bulky, heavy. Metal connectors are huge, extremely close to camera, constantly rubbing and knocking when i carry camera in a bag, and they always obstruct display/evf when shooting in portrait orientation.
    Simplr strap has fixed all this for me. Simply perfect for my type of usage.

  6. My Favorite Camera Strap!

    Scott B

    I have been using Simplr straps since 2019 with my Fuji cameras. I own 5 because I like changing out different colors. I’ve used a lot of other brands that I won’t mention here. These straps are the best combination of utility and also being stylish. I will never purchase another brands strap for my cameras.

  7. Perfect

    Seiji

    Great materials, build quality, and most importantly design. Little clever things like how the flat mount keepers synch up perfectly with three layers of nylon once the strap is installed are so slick. The adjustment tab also makes adjusting on the fly zero hassle. Looks amazing too, super clean.

  8. Exactly what they say it is - and what I was looking for.

    APhotographer

    This strap is exactly what they say it is – and what I was looking for – strong, elegant, attractive, and simple. I am using it on an OM1 and an X-T2 with a variety of small and large lenses. I like that it is not bulky but it is comfortable and strong and comes in elegant colors. I also like that I can wear it as cross-body or convert it to a wrist strap, and there isn’t a lot of bulk that gets in the way.

  9. Great service, great strap

    Mike M

    Nice fit and perfect marriage my Fuji X-T2 and others. At some point will likely buy another.
