I’ve never seen a camera strap I liked and there’s a million of them out there. Too wide, to stiff, too ‘techy,’ too synthetic… I like the strap I made for my Leica so I copied the scale and length for the camera I got yesterday. These are long enough to wear cross body which is just how I prefer to carry all of my cameras. I dyed this one British tan so it’d have kind of a two tone look since I left the under side untouched.
Anyone in the market for a camera strap should check out McMurray & Blonde’s products (links below).
Made by hand in Chicago, supple-yet-durable Horween Chromexcel leather, easy-to-detach hardware, variety of sizes and styles and, best of all, half the cost of comparable bespoke camera straps. The one pictured here is $35. Perfect pairing for the X-Pro2.
Does what it says. No logos or flash. The man who takes your order is the same craftsman at the table making the product.

One of our most popular lines of straps is the locally-made Le Jolie Laide leather camera strap. These straps are ideal for any camera deserving of a little extra class, but they look particularly good on vintage film cameras (or something with a similar look, like the Fujifilm X100T).
