Not Just Another Neck Strap
Let’s be clear — the F1 functions beautifully as a neck strap — but it really shines when worn cross-body (sling-style).
The integral “adjustment tab” quickly tailors the strap length, without additional plastic or metal hardware. That’s especially useful when worn cross-body — because you can go from having the camera securely cinched up, for easy mobility — to having it slung low, for unhindered portrait or landscape shooting — just by pulling the tab.
Less to Get in the Way
A funny thing happened when we launched our original quick-release M1-Series — a lot of people put one on their camera — then never took it off! Inspired by this, we developed the F1…
As it turned out, a lot of people just wanted to get their old-fashioned chunky, clunky camera straps out of the way (Simplr straps are anything but). F1 takes sleekness and adjustability to a completely new level.
We’re particularly proud of the attachment hardware used on the F1. Instead of a one-size-fits-all compromise, we’ve got mounting options optimized for your camera.
The barely-there lug mount version comes with our proprietary split rings, made out of a steel and magnesium alloy that’s 25% stronger than stainless steel. They always spring fully closed, and won’t squiggle off your camera.
Our version of the “traditional” flat mount utilizes a sliplok developed by aerospace engineers, for cameras being sent to … you guessed it … space. We also came up with a more streamlined installation method that tidies up loose ends.
Light, Strong & Built to Last in the USA
Materials used to make the F1 are similar to what you’d find on state-of-the-art expedition gear, where strength-to-weight ratio is critical, and exposure to the elements is no big deal (try that with a fancy leather strap).
The F1 is built to ridiculously high standards in our shop, right here in the US.
Wrist Strap in a Pinch
Loop the strap through the D-rings for a quick and effective wrist strap. Also great to get your strap up and out of the way when using a tripod (or just tie it in a knot — seriously).
