Leather camera neck strap. Handmade in the U.S.A. gordy's camera straps

Neck strap, horizontal

Fuji X100S gordy's horizontal neck strap. Dark brown leather black wrap.

I call this a "horizontal" neck strap because that is the way the camera hangs. It attaches onto both lugs with 1/2" split rings (or optional attach strings). They are $30 without any accessories. 


THe length of the strap is measured from one end to the other.The length of a strap with quick disconnects is measured from the end of one spring clip to the end of the other.The length of a strap with attach strings is measured from the end of one attach string to the end of the other.

You can choose any length that works best for you. 40" (101 cm) is our most popular length for a neck strap, but the perfect length can vary from person to person. It depends on the length of your torso and how you like to carry your camera. For a more custom length, I’d recommend simulating the strap with a string then measuring that.

 If you add a Quick disconnect kit or attach strings we will automatically calculate the additional length so your camera still hangs at the desired length.

Light brown leather camera strap

Made of Latigo belt leather, my hand made camera straps are tough, flexible, and pliable. They have a natural luster that only improves with age and softens with use. Keep in mind that there are always variations in leather. The color and texture can vary from hide to hide. Please allow for this.

 Additional Accessories 

  Neck pad 

Leica D-Lux type 109 Black leather red wrap. Black neck pad.

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 always use a neck pad. These pads are 1" (25mm) wide and 8 3/4" (222mm) long for good support and we beveled the edges for better comfort. They are made from 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. They unfortunately can't be added after the strap has been assembled. Neck pads are an additional US$15.Dark brown neck pad. Light brown neck strap.

 Strap Bumpers 

Strap bumpers are a great way to protect your camera body from the metal on the strap.

O-ring strap bumpers are made of rubber and are thicker than the other bumpers. It's also recommended to use them if you are attaching your strap to a rod. This will keep the split ring securely in place. They're also easily added after the strap has been assembled. $2 for a set of two. 

Octagonal strap bumpers are a great leather option and can be added to your camera at any time. Although we make them thinner, the same leather is used as the straps and they're available in the same colors. $4 each.

Integral Strap Bumpers are assembled in the loop of the strap. They can then be placed between the lug-mount and the split ring for protection. We thin the same leather that's used for the straps so the same colors are available. Because the strap is assembled together with the Integral strap bumper they can not be added after the strap has been assembled.  $4 each.

 Quick Disconnect kits 


Lumix camera disconnect kit

The Quick disconnect kit will allow you to switch between straps easily. It includes two spring clips, two o-ring strap bumpers, and two split rings. The kit also adds 2 1/2" to the length of the neck strap.

 The titanium spring clip is 6 axis machine cut from titanium 6AL-4V.

$33 for the kit shown.

 Attach strings 


If you need to attach your camera to a slotted lug-mount or a post you will need attach strings for $2.

The attach string are two loops tied together with a bowline knot. It's much stronger that it might appear. Check out my strength test. They are $2 for a pair and they come in two lengths, short and long. You can also choose any color you'd like. For a better visual on attaching them to your strap check my instructional page.
