Wapiti Straps are handmade by a photographer. They are available in four basic styles. I ordered the Spike Strap for my Sony NEX 6 and a Rut Strap (which is actually a wrist strap) for another camera. Both are small and ideally suited for one-handed camera operation. They also offer the more conventional Bugle Strap and the C1, which can be ordered in custom lengths. Prices range from $29 to $59 and as far as I am concerned, they are worth every penny.
The defining feature of the Wapiti Strap is the genuine Montana Elk hide pad. The construction is absolutely magnificent, and the included hardware looks and feels like it will last a lifetime. If it’s common for you to tow a camera by your neck for hours on end, check out the Wapiti Strap.
