FAQ

 

What length should I get?

It depends on your height and where you like your camera to sit. The average person is about 5 foot 8 inches tall, and if they like the camera to sit at their chest, then the 35 inch is perfect. For the average height person, the 40 inch strap will sit at the top of belly area, 45 will be about mid belly, with 50 inch strap reaching the waistline. Measuring tape works great for visual representation from strap end to end around neck.

Which connector should I get?

The split ring is the go to for most cameras, such as the Leica M or any camera with a stud protruding out that has a hole for a ring to go in.

The hook clip is good for DSLR's that have a bar recessed at the top corner of each side.

We also have a Op-Tech soft loop connector I recommend for the Leica SL camera. 

Hasselblad V connectors are great for your Hasselblad 500 series camera!

Why use paracord?

We often need gear that is able to function in a ways it wasn't quite intended to.  Whats unique about paracord is it was designed to operate in ways outside of its initial intended use.  Paracord has answered millions of unexpected occasions in previous years and we believe this is the case for years to come.  Which is why paracord was a great medium for us in offering products with both great form and function.
