the Zoe strap

My wife, Zoe, and I went on a beach walk at Ebey's Landing here on Whidbey Island. I had a neck strap on my camera and she had a wrist strap on hers. Several times during the day we both wished we had the other strap. On the way home Zoe said that I should design a strap that was both a neck strap and a wrist strap. When we got home I went down to the basement (gordy's camera straps world headquarters) and made the strap in the picture above, the original Zoe strap on Zoe's camera. Then I made one for me.

I think the Zoe strap works better as a shorter neck strap. I like 35". At that length there is less hanging when you are using the wrist strap and it hangs better if you let it hang at your side from your shoulder. The wrist strap is about the size of the large wrist strap.

The Zoe strap attaches to both lugs, with the included 1/2" split rings, and holds the camera with the traditional horizontal orientation.

All Zoe lug-mount neck straps are US$36 without a neck pad. A neck pad is an additional $13. I don't offer a wrist pad for the wrist strap part of the Zoe strap.

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




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


  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.


  Figuring out the length


My neck straps are not adjustable so specify the length desired. I made my own 35 inches long from end to end. Centimeters or inches will work. Just let me know the unit of measure.
