I've been begging for a 'fashion' strap for my Cannon T3 Rebel for years now and I finally smartened up and invested in one- only problem? Now I wants more CAM-in straps! I noticed, when shopping, that designer straps can range upwards of $90, especially the scarf style I've been eying, so I was unsure how this, more traditional, strap would go over. At $20, it seemed like a bargain, and this style in particular was very colorful and kitschy, which matches me all around.
*The strap arrived in a very basic semi-translucent plastic packaging and the strap itself had some branding imprinted on the brown leather straps.
*The packaging included basic instructions, to install the strap, and conversion hardware (two matching leather tabs and round brackets) for older cameras, or newer Polaroids such as the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8. If you have a DSLR then you likely installed the original straps- these go on very much in the same way so instructions were not needed, but are nice to have. We really though the extra touch of conversion hardware was of great value- it's nice to know these straps can add beauty to a wide variety of cameras.
*The length of this strap (excluding the adjustable nylon straps) was about 2 inches longer than our standard Cannon T3 Rebel strap. In all, it offered about 4 inches of extra length when installed and at maximum length.
*The width of the strap itself if the same consistently through to the more narrow nylon strap- unlike the traditional Cannon DSLR straps, which are wider at the neck for more even weight distribution. The interior of this fashion strap is also made with a uniform material- unlike the stock/traditional Cannon strap, which has a rubberized grip coating at the widest, central, point. Noting these things, this strap is beautifully constructed and well made. The interior material is a soft suede material that adds a richness to the design and wear we truly appreciate.
*The detailing of the woven design is quite well done, and the colors are very vibrant and rich. My girlfriend is in love with the strap, despite the fact she initially thought she'd wanted something with a primary black base. In the end, she says that this strap has a great vintage vibe that pays homage to traditional photography, and she doesn't mind the contrast of brown to black at all.
