The Century21 of Camera Straps: Woolnut Leather Camera Strap Review

For photographers wanting to add a splash of style when carrying their cameras, the Woolnut Leather Camera Strap is a handsome option.

Made from a combination of full-grain, vegetable-tanned Scandinavian leather, natural German wool felt, and metal accents, the Woolnut Leather Camera Strap is a definite upgrade over bundled branded camera straps. When it comes to straps, some photographers treat them as a style statement, while others are perfectly content using the branded one that came bundled with their camera. Some photographers tend to prefer lower profile alternatives like wrist straps or carrying clips. Having used the Woolnut Leather Camera Strap for the better part of the last few months with several cameras and lenses, it certainly falls under the style statement category. It’s nicely padded, and even when carrying heavier cameras and lenses, this padding keeps the Woolnut Leather Camera Strap comfortable.

Review: Vi Vante Tread Classic Camera Strap

The Vi Vante Tread Classic Camera Strap is for only the most stylish photographer.

After using the Vi Vante Tread Classic Camera Strap for a month or so, I’ve come to the conclusion it’s for the stylish photographer. It has its practicalities, but it’s less functional than much of what Vi Vante has in their lineup. The Vi Vante Tread Classic Camera Strap is for the photographer who first and foremost wants to flex their style, evident in many aspects of the design. From the flat profile intended to provide comfort to the red threads that run through it, the Vi Vante Tread Classic is a strap that oozes with allure.

Review: Stroppa Flat Camera Strap (So Gorgeous, Yet So Simple)

With the Stroppa Flat Camera Strap, you’ve got an option that is bound to stand out.

I’ve always been more of a leather and canvas guy when it comes to my camera straps, but after I was given the Stroppa Flat Camera strap I was pleasantly surprised. The material looks like a lighter version of the sailing rope style bindings that you’d find at Home Depot, but this is softer and quite durable. The Stroppa Flat Camera strap isn’t exactly low profile depending on what color you get. I was given both black and red; the red is arguably the more stylish of the two. For the photographer who doesn’t want leather or canvas, the Stroppa Flat Camera strap could be an affordable and versatile option.
