With purposeful design, rugged materials and timeless good looks… the M1a Mirrorless Camera Strap balances form and function like no other.

Easy to adjust, with quick-release, and no extra bulk, the M1a feels like it was made for your Fujifilm X-Series, Sony Alpha, Olympus OM-D, or Panasonic Lumix… because it was.

The M1a uses the same quick-release connector as our M1w Mirrorless Wrist Strap, so you can swap them effortlessly… neck strap to wrist strap (or back) in seconds.

A No-Compromise Camera Strap for Mirrorless Cameras

If you’ve got a mirrorless, micro four-thirds or compact camera, you certainly don’t need a strap designed for a big, heavy DSLR.

The M1a Mirrorless Camera Strap is a meticulously crafted, easily adjustable, quick-release camera strap — proportioned for today’s smaller professional-grade cameras.

Easy, Instant Adjustment

The M1a Mirrorless Camera Strap goes from 36″–56″ in seconds, using a single slide-adjuster.

For most people, that’s a standard-length neck strap, all the way to a long cross-body strap (you might refer to it as a sling strap).

The M1a Mirrorless Camera Strap goes from neck strap to cross-body strap in a seconds. Here attached to Fujifilm X-E2s.

Attaches & Removes in Seconds

Even the perfect strap can be annoying, like when you’re using a tripod, shooting video with a gimbal, or just want to go strapless. That’s why we love quick-release camera straps.

We proudly use Op/Tech USA Mini QD Loops™. Ideal for mirrorless, they attach with a strong 1.5mm nylon cord, have a tensile strength of 44lbs (20kg), and won’t release accidentally. Learn more about them here.

Light, Strong & Built to Last

Materials used to make the M1a are similar to what you’d find on state-of-the-art expedition gear, where strength-to-weight ratio is critical (here’s a strength test), and exposure to the elements is no big deal.

We build the M1a to ridiculously high standards in our shop, right here in the U.S.

We use carefully selected rugged materials for our camera straps

More Comfortable to Hold

Most camera straps have two sets of adjusters and retainers, located at both ends. That’s a lot of hardware (especially if you’ve added quick-releases).

The M1a’s single adjuster, and integral quick-releases, means there are less lumps and bumps, and no rattling metal to bang against your camera.

The M1a Mirrorless Camera Strap is more comfortable to hold. Here attached to Fujifilm X-E2s.

    I bought both Simplr straps a few weeks ago (M1a & M1w) and I’ll make this short: They are very light and that’s what I was looking for. My main camera is Fujifilm X-T2 and these straps are perfect fit for it. I’m thinking of buying the wrist strap for my Ricoh GRii now.

    I’m new to photography but love well-made, beautiful products. So naturally, I went with a black X100F and got the Simplr strap to accompany it. The coyote colorway looks awesome.

    As a designer professionally I can get a little overly picky about products, so take my comments with a grain of salt, but there are a few things about the Simplr strap that I think could improve.

    While the webbing used is bomb-proof, and may relax/soften in time, brand new, the edge is stiff, and can irritate your neck after a short period of time. I’ve remedied that with my shirt or jacket collar for now. I also think the smaller transition webbings are too long and I’d like a hardware piece there for adjustment. Lastly, while made in the US, the price is still too high. I’m keeping my strap, I love it, but I bought it understanding I was supporting a small brand, that was hustling to make great product, and I’m into that. That said, the price needs to drop in time in my opinion.

    4/5 stars for a well-made, not overly designed strap, that looks great, and perfectly compliments my camera.

    Fantastic product, just what I was looking for. Very quick and easy to connect and remove the strap and the connection system is very secure. I love that it uses plastic hardware, no metal buckle to scratch my camera if I put it back in the bag in a hurry. A very well thought out product, I would recommend this to anybody!

    The M1A is an amazing product. I needed something that could unattach easily for long exposure tripod shooting and convert from shoulder to sling type strap in seconds. The perfect width. I bought two, one green and one brown for my Sony cameras, this way I could tell them apart quickly in the bag or backpack. The build is rugged and has held up great in prolonged outdoor shooting usage. Totally modular with the M1w wrist strap. Great system.

    A sleek, robust, lightweight strap that looks great. Attach it to my camera and go. I couldn’t ask for more in a camera strap… the new wrist strap totally rocks as well!

    Simple. Clean. Functional. This is the less is more camera strap I’ve been waiting for to carry my M6. It just works so well I forget its even there. Easy to adjust and never gets in the way. I cant recommend enough.

    It’s good enough to buy a second one.

    If you’re looking for a sleek and functional strap look no further. I use it on both my Polaroid Spectra and Sony A99, it works great for both. It stays in place, works as both a full-body and one-shoulder, and looks good. Can’t ask for much more.

    If you like simple, clean, chic design, then get more than one. The camouflage is perfect and, well, Black is a must. I love them.

    Very comfortable strap in use, and I like that there is no brand name on it and no screaming colours. Very easy disconnect buckles. Delivery was very fast, but the only problem was that I had to pay extra taxes for customs (I live in Belgium). Highly recommended.

    This strap is the best. I tried to live with the stock strap that came with my Fujifilm X-Pro2. The ⅜ inch strap material coupled with triangle metal hook would not behave to my liking. Delivery was fast, the product is as advertised. Thanks for creating a great product.

    This camera strap is the perfect solution for my Nikon D3300. It offers all of the flexibility and function you need. The strap is lightweight, completely adjustable and I love the camo design. The ability to easily detach the straps gives you the opportunity to shoot without constraint and you can quickly reattach. This is such a well made product, I highly recommend it.

    Easily the best camera straps that I own. Very lightweight, incredibly easy to adjust, and durable. SimplrStraps has a customer for life. Great for cameras of all sizes and an absolute joy to use with my RX1RII. Clasps hold their place well, but can be quickly adjusted for any length. Quick-disconnect buckles are very convenient and the length of the attachment points mean that my straps never get in the way of my shooting. A simple, understated, and overall excellent design. Thank you!

    Great strap and super stylish! Camo is the way to go for me. Already got a positive comment about it. Using it on my Fuji X100s.

    This review is based on my personal opinion. If your looking a simple yet very stylish neck strap this one definitely fits the bill. The nylon is very soft and slides easily if worn cross body. All the hardware is strong and I feel very confident they will stand up against everyday use. In my opinion I have compared this strap to The Peak Design leash and Dsptch strap. My conclusion has lead me to pick the simplR M1a strap hands down.

    This great-looking strap now connects my Ricoh GR to my neck. Now I don’t know what do with my hands, but it looks great: well-made but without drawing undue attention to itself. The teeny quick-disconnect feature is handy and easy to use, even with my fumbling fingers.

    Nice Strap. I looked at a few different options before buying this one. I’m happy with my decision. Very light. Packs very small. I can remove it in about 5 seconds. Most important thing is it’s very comfortable and almost nothing to get in the way of where I hold my camera. I use it on a Sony a6300.

    I ordered this when they were doing a promo with FujiRumors website. I was definitely wary becuase I couldn’t find any reviews. Found out it was a new company and took a leap of faith. This works and looks good on my fuji x100f. just about the ideal strap for that particular camera. Subtracting one star becuase I nearly forgot where I bought it from. There’s no brand name on it. Maybe that’s good.
