  non-adjustable neck strap—horizontal

Order form at bottom of page.
Cameras not included with neck straps.

I call this a horizontal neck strap because that is the way the camera hangs. The horizontal neck strap attaches to both lugs, with the included 1/2" split rings (and optional attach strings—see below).

All horizontal neck straps (without neck pad) are US$27.



Check out our chart to see our recommendations for
which strap end for which camera




Your choice of 1/4" (6mm) wide natural, russet, dark brown, or black leather with black, gray, white, red, green, blue, yellow, light brown, brown, dark brown, raspberry, turquoise, orange, and hot pink .040" (1mm) diameter waxed heavy-duty cord. Check out the Colors page.


  Figuring out the length


My neck straps are not adjustable so specify the length desired. Most people get between 35" (90cm) and 45" (114cm). 40" (101cm) is a nice all around length. It depends how high or low you like to carry the camera. You could try some sting to simulate the strap and measure that. I will need the length of the strap you want measured from end to end. Centimeters or inches will work. Just let me know the unit of measure.

Jenny, our Director of Customer Happiness, has been answering questions on what is the right length. She did this sketch to show how the camera would hang for some different lengths on a 5'10" (178cm) man. The lengths are 30" (76cm), 40" (102cm) and 50" (127cm).





  Neck Pads

My neck straps will support pretty heavy loads but sometimes our necks won't. The straps work fine for lighter cameras but, for those heavier cameras, I have neck pads. These pads are 1" (25mm) wide and 8 3/4" (222mm) long for good support. The edges are beveled. They are the same leather as the straps and are available in the same colors. If you want a neck pad, it must be ordered with the strap. Neck pads are an additional US$13.


  Strap Bumpers


A pair of strap bumpers are an additional US$2 for the O-ring Strap Bumper and US$8 for the Octagonal or Integral Strap Bumpers.


  Attach strings


If you have a camera that has a rod or post for attaching (see which strap end to use on which camera) you can add short or long attach strings $2 for the pair. The attach string is in two loops tied together with a bowline knot. It's much stronger that it might appear. Check out the details of my strength test on the home page. Note that the strap length is measured to the end of the attach strings. See "Figuring out the length" above.


  Double quick disconnect kit


A neck strap will need a double quick disconnect kit, one for each end, if you want to add quick disconnects. The double quick disconnect kit includes two stainless steel spring clips, two o-ring strap bumpers, and two split rings and is $16.50. It adds 1 1/4" (3.2cm) at each end of the strap for 2 1/2s" (6.4cm) to the total length of the strap. Here is more detailed information on quick disconnect kits.
