Souldier Straps

It seems I get countless questions on what camera strap I use as its pretty bold looking. As you can see in the photo above of YoungDoo (Gave one to her to use with her 5DMKII) Its a pretty sturdy looking strap. They are actually made from seatbelt material and are available in any color you could want. They are hand made to order and incredibly sturdy and trustworthy. There is an optional padding you can get added to the center of the strap that is a rather bland looking grey color but it does a great job of holding your camera in place and adding a small amount of extra padding if your carrying around a heavy camera.

The company that makes the straps is based out of Chicago and is called Souldier. Some of you may recognize them from a popular photography blog/store called Photojojo which sells a few colors from their shop but I would suggest buying straight from the source on Souldier’s website where you have well over twice the color selection than Photojojo carries and the option to add padding to the strap. The company also sells all sorts of other types of wonderful vintage looking straps for both cameras and guitars and really I cant recommend them enough for those of you looking for a nice strap for your camera.

You can visit their website by clicking here or visit the shop page for the seatbelt straps here (which is located in the 2“ strap section).

    You´re really horrible!
    I mean, I like very much these straps but I can´t buy them in Europe and seems difficult to buy them in Europe. I was in Chicago only 6 months ago (I live in Spain).
    I want one of them…..
    And I want it now…..
    I really need them. It´s a life or death question :)

    I´m going to explore the page and find if I can…


    BTW, once more i´d like to thank you for your photos.

    Oscar, heh, sorry about that! They are fantastic straps, did you check the photojojo site? They may do international shipping. Let me know if you need a hand ordering one, maybe I can help out by ordering one for you and forwarding it over to Spain ;)

    So nice to find another person with a few original thoughts on this
    topic. Really.. many thanks for starting this up.
    This site is one thing that’s needed on the internet, someone with some originality!

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at and give a credit to Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
