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 […]

  1. Rather wimpy

    Johnnyp

    The strap appears more substantial on site than in hand.

    • Simplr

      If you’re accustomed to traditional camera straps, the lightness of an F1 can be disorienting. Make no mistake, your F1 can support many times the weight of your camera without even breaking a sweat. We’ve never had to repair one, ever.

    I’ve been using Simplr straps on my Fuji Xpro ‘s for a few years now. They are lightweight / durable and easy to adjust.
    They look amazing too.

  3. Great strap for the GFX100 II

    fcracer

    Really like this strap as it doesn’t have too much bulk to it. It’s comfortable to carry the heavy GFX. Only wish is for the strap material to be a bit more premium (probably a reasonable tradeoff to keep it light and streamlined).

  4. Light, simple, durable and field-worthy

    Christopher Kirk

    Very lightweight strap has been a good match for days on the trail with my ef-m cameras. Very pleased–the adjustment works very well and no concern over strength and durability. The strap is stiff and does twist when changing positions from straight neck hang to shoulder-neck position, but straightens without trouble. I also figured out a nice self-tightening wrist-strap setup that’s much more secure and just as easy to arrange. The strap is a bit rough on the neck but hasn’t been problematic. Would certainly buy another for my second field camera.

  6. Stylish & Versatile

    omn _krill

    Bought two of these in different colors for my Fujifilm X-T30 and X-T4. I’m vegan so it’s nice to have a strap that isn’t leather. It’s really easy to adjust from short to long. I went skateboarding with it and skated around town for miles with the camera and strap on me and it is super comfortable. Would highly recommend if you don’t own one.

  7. Simple and Versatile

    Hank

    I own several of these now, on cameras of various weights. It really is a versatile strap – the wrist strap configuration is very nice – and it is lightweight and durable.

  8. Vintage

    Martin

    I got this strap on recommendation from my daughter to replace an old leather strap on my vintage Kodak Retina IIIc camera. It’s perfectly suited for it. I love the versatility and simple design. It fits and functions perfectly with my camera.

  9. It’s OK.

    Dan

    I needed a replacement strap for my FE2. I bought this strap after seeing it advertised on IG. My fault not knowing it didn’t have a swivel. I should have done a deeper dive into the specs. I hate twisted straps and this strap gets twisted up into a tangle. The sliding nature of the strap gaps; I bought some thin Velcro flat ties to use as keepers to keep the gap closed.
    Fit and finish is excellent, good attention to detail. Now, if you could add a couple of swivel connectors…

  10. Bullet Proof

    John Penoyar

    Simplr straps are exactly that, simpler. No gimmicks, sturdy, quickly adjustable. Bullet proof!
