I tested twenty some odd camera straps in the effort to find the best camera strap available. Cecilia sent me their very unique and stylish Baby Alpaca Wool Leather strap to try.
Cecilia is a newer company that comes from a long history of leather making. They specialize in combining high-quality leather with alpaca wool. All their straps offer a very elegant and timeless look. I really liked the look of the strap I tested and I was very impressed with the quality of the leather .
My biggest fear with this strap was having the wool rub my skin. Of course the wool is on the non-skin side, but I will admit it felt a little weird when I first put it on. After that point though, I never noticed it again and the strap was quite comfortable. The leather was crazy soft and felt good on my neck. It was a little longer than normal straps and I really liked how comfortable it was wearing it sling-style across my chest.
The great leather on this strap goes all the way down without a separate attachment strap; however, it does not have a belt-loop style attachment; instead, it uses the common attachment where you thread it through the buckle (I tried to find what this was called, but had no luck). Usually, I do not like having to do this connection, but the soft leather was much easier to get through the buckles than the nylon you find on less-expensive straps.
