Minimalist leather strap for mirrorless?

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Minimalist leather strap for mirrorless?


I've been using a Heavy Leather Classic Strap with my Fuji X100S and its... okay. I like how comfortable it feels, especially the very soft leather, but the tiny bolt snap hooks don't swivel very well and the buckles really make it too much hardware.

One of my favorite briefcase shoulder straps is the Filson Shoulder Strap. Is there something out there made with similar, relatively thick, strong leather, that has minimal hardware (and preferably brass) and minimal/no stitching. I'm okay with it being uncomfortable for several weeks while it breaks in. I've been searching Google and Etsy and found several examples (Tap&Dye, McMurry&Blonde), but I can't judge the quality of the leather. Price ranges swing wildly among the hundreds of sellers on Etsy for what seems like similar items.

Looking for some recommendations here instead!

These guys do a good range of handmade leather camera straps for mirrorless cameras. Maybe something there to tempt you with?

Uh, the vintage wide with padding is almost exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

I have always had great luck with Gordy's wrist and neck straps:

I avoid leather around photo equipment. It provides a perfect host for fungus to grow and from the strap it is a short distance to the camera and its lens. It is why when in the old days a lens would come with a leather case I promptly put the case in its box in the garage and did not use it for the lens.
