F1ultralight

New!

If our F1 had a tiny superhero sibling, it would be the F1ultralight.

Combine the F1’s expedition-grade construction, quick-adjustment tab, and streamlined design — with even more breathtaking lightness and slimmer proportions — and you’ve got the featherweight champion of camera straps. (weighing in at one ounce!)

With durable 3/4″ wide webbing and tiny-but-tough acetal hardware, the F1ultralight is strong where it counts. More importantly, it’s small where counts — especially near your hand where it matters most. With zero extra bulk, and sleek lug mount attachment, it’s about as close as you can get to holding a naked camera.

As the smallest cameras inherit the capabilities of their larger brethren (like the Fujifilm X100 and Sony RX1R series), so too should your camera strap — and that’s exactly what we did with the F1ultralight.

Usually ships in 1–2 business days.

Overview

Functionally, the F1ultralight is similar to our acclaimed F1 — streamlined, easy to adjust, and plenty strong — with a couple key differences…

One: The F1ultralight is slimmer than the F1, by a lot. On paper, the difference between 3/4″ (19mm) and 1″ (25.4mm) wide webbing might not sound that big, but it is — and the hardware is smaller too. The sum of the F1ultralight’s parts is significantly more compact, even though the length and range of adjustment are practically the same.

With very small cameras, there’s no appreciable difference in comfort (we recommend the F1ultralight for cameras up to 1.5lb [.68kg] even though it’s fully-capable of supporting much more), but you may find an F1 more comfortable on bigger cameras (wider webbing distributes weight across a larger area).

Two: Unlike the F1 — which can be converted into a wrist strap by passing the webbing through the D-rings — the F1ultralight converts to a tether by passing the webbing through the integrated “rip cord” loop.

How-To

Install Simplr Split Rings, or a Lug Mount F1

*If you’re just installing Simplr Split Rings, not an F1 camera strap, you can skip straight to 1:07 in this video. Your new F1 will be more pleasant to use if you do a quick “break-in” before installing it on your camera. Adjust the strap from minimum to maximum length about twenty times, by holding […]

    Lightweight, thin, yet strong. Perfect match for the Fuji X100V. Nothing else to say. It is an awesome adjustable strap. More colors please!

  3. Perfect for Fuji X100F

    Robert M Ryan

    This strap is absolutely the perfect size and weight for my Fuji X100F. It feels natural, like it was made for the camera specifically. It folds into a very compact bundle that allows me to carry the camera in a small bag with minimal bulk. I have 2 straps from Simplr – an F1 and an F1 Ultralight. I am sold on this high-quality product and will be ordering additional straps for other camera bodies.

  4. Perhaps the best strap I've used

    Kevin Mullins

    An amazing camera strap for mirrorless cameras. Strong, durable and understated. It doesn’t shout “Hipster” and is extremely comfortable to wear and use.

  5. Excellent!

    Ricardo Lazzari

    I purchased this product with the certainty that it would be as good as the F1 straps I purchased before, and I wasn’t disappointed. Great design and materials, lightweight and not bulky at all made it ideal for the Fuji X100V. The honest price, great construction and lack of metal parts that could scratch the camera are all important factors that make me come back for more Simplr straps.

  6. F1's Little Brother

    Ronald

    The F1 ultralight is a natural for my X100V. I’ve had the F1 on my X3 for several years and it works great so this was a no brainier. I especially like the fact that there is no bulk from the strap where it attaches to the camera, thus giving you a better grip. The adjustable length gives you the option of full sling style or just over the neck.

  7. Perfect travel strap

    Joe

    I purchased this to go with my Fuji x100v. The simple aesthetic is really great and unassuming. The strap is nearly weightless which is great for travelling, and makes it the perfect match for a small camera you want to carry around all day. The simple design also never gets in the way of holding and shooting pictures which is incredibly important especially for shooting quickly on the street. The length adjustments are also quick and effortless. The strap seems very well made and despite the incredibly light weight I’m never concerned about the safety of my camera. Highly recommended.

  8. Nothing else like it

    Eric

    Over the last few years I’ve become a massive Simplr fan. Started with an M1a, graduated to an F1, and now I’ve got the F1ultralight on my brand new X100v. Of all the Simplr straps I’ve had this one is the most unique and specialized. I don’t think anyone else is making anything close. For me, when street shooting, having a strap that’s easy to adjust is important. To be honest, that’s not hard to find, but what makes the F1ultralight unique is the lightness, thin-ness, and high stealth factor combined with that adjustability. There’s nothing shiny or fancy about it, but it’s really well made. Also very comfy. I’m confident it’s the last strap I’ll buy for my X100V and then I will move it over to my future X100Z or whatever they call the next one.

  9. The best split-ring camera strap designed with versatility and simplicity in mind. Excellent for your everyday adventures!

    Jarvis

    Having been a huge fan of their M1 series and the original F1 strap, I saw this new model from SIMPLR and had to give it a try; I was extremely glad that I did. While I love the M1 series for their detachable lug straps, some cameras ask for a more anchored strap and the F1ultralight exceeds my expectations. It combines the best elements of the M1 and the F1 straps into a very slim, strong, and wonderful package.

    The purpose of the F1ultralight is to allow you to quickly dial in your preferred length and forget it. Its lightweight design collapses very easily into a camera bag or simply wraps around your hand as a quick wrist strap, and the strap hardware is very durable and polished. Most camera straps are incredibly bulky, whether the straps themselves, or the hardware used, but the every aspect of the F1ultralight strap is made for everything you need, nothing more.

    Perfect for fixed-lens cameras like the X100 and RX1 series or interchangeable mirrorless cameras with prime lenses. While the M1 series is excellent for cameras with small or shallow lugs, such as RX100 series or the Ricoh GR series of cameras, the F1ultralight provides a bit more stability while not compromising on bulk for any camera with a split-ring lug design. It is especially well-suited for Fuji lugs, which in recent years have incorporated an extra piece on the inside to increase the longevity of the lug, but also have a side-effect of being a bit scratchy on non-metal strap connections. However, zero worries with the F1ultralight.

    My new favorite strap. Great job, Simplr!
