I tested twenty some odd camera straps in the effort to find the best camera strap available. Lance Straps provided one of their classic burgundy straps for me to try out.
The strap from Lance Straps is different. It has a unique look with a very simple design. It almost looks like a rope or bungee cord. To be honest, my first impression was that it would not be comfortable at all. I was surprised after wearing the strap that it was actually quite comfortable. It was also really comfortable to where slung across my chest. I also liked that the strap was not bulky at all. This made it really easy to fit in any camera bag.
I had the non-adjustable strap. It worked fine for me, although I would have preferred to be able to shorten it on a few occasions. I would not recommend the 48 inch non-adjustable strap if you are under six feet tall as it is a pretty long strap. As I haven’t tried the shorter one, I couldn’t tell you what height that would be good for, but it wouldn’t take much to figure it out.
This strap is really well made with great attention to detail. I loved the attachment clips (optional purchase). They attach right to the camera so you don’t have extra strap dangling when you disconnect the strap and they are fast and easy to take on and off. They also have optional little rubber bumpers to keep the metal from rubbing or scratching your camera body.
If you want something minimalist that won’t take up a lot of room, you should check this strap out. Also, if you like to remove your camera strap from the camera, the clips are an absolute must as it is so nice to easily remove and not have danglings left behind.
You can currently pick up this strap from Amazon for $38. For more, check out our Recommended Gear.
