Unique camera straps for travelling photographers

18 Oct 2017

Camera straps come in many different shapes and sizes, which can be overwhelming when looking for a new, personalised camera strap. When selecting products, we keep in mind their ease-of-use, durability and comfort, which is why Outdoorphoto’s range of camera and wrist straps includes the trendy Sailor Strap (made from thick high-quality sailing rope) and Punda Milia with African-inspired designs and all-around padding for extra comfort.

If you’re in the market for a camera strap, consider these three things:

  1. Are the buckles that connect your camera and strap made from metal? If yes, be sure that they’re covered with leather flaps or tough material alternatives that prevent it from wearing out and damaging your camera body.
  2. Always look for a camera strap that is easy to use. Camera straps shouldn’t take hours to attach to your camera, so buy a strap that is easy to attach and remove.
  3. Comfort is key. Be careful of choosing straps that are too thin as they could chafe your neck. Rather opt for straps with padded neck areas.

Sailor Strap

We absolutely love Sailor Strap! Fusing sailing with photography, these handmade rope camera straps are colourful and full of personality. Made of braided silk polyester and finished off with up-cycled tanned Italian leather, you can rest assured that your Sailor Strap is durable and waterproof. Secure your strap to the camera with high-quality stainless steel split rings. The rope is adjustable for looping and knotting, and versatile for use as a hand or wrist strap.
