Camera straps are easily overlooked and neglected, but they’re actually some of the most important pieces of photography gear. It’s essential to invest in high quality camera straps that will make carrying your camera more comfortable. Plus, you get to upgrade your camera’s whole look by just changing the neck strap that came along with it. We found a homegrown brand that specializes in handcrafting personalized leather camera straps that are perfect for your precious cameras.
Comrade PH was founded by freelance photographers Marlon Dela Cruz and Aryann Avenido back in November 2015. The brand highlights pursuing passions despite struggles and times of adversity through their #KeepWhyAlive movement and through their strong partnership with their artisans.
Their leather goods, mainly camera straps, are made by their leather smith who they work closely with throughout the whole process of designing and creating their products. All their materials are locally sourced and are of high quality. They can also add a monogram of your name on their products for a more personal touch.
Here are some of their products that we love:
Raw Camera Strap
Made of genuine cow leather, the Raw Camera Strap combines both style and versatility in its design. It was built to be a neck strap that can transform into a wrist strap with the leather bracelet that comes along with it.
This type of strap is good for those who want to switch from carrying their cameras on their necks to slinging it across their bodies, so they can freely hold their cameras with their hand while having a sense of fuss-free comfort and security. The strap can carry up to 3kgs, making it perfect for all kinds of cameras – be it a film, mirrorless, digital, or DSLR camera.
Classic Camera Strap
The Classic Camera Strap is also made with genuine cow leather. It is one of their bestselling camera straps due to its minimalist and functional design. It can carry up to 1.5kgs and comes in two leather colors: amber and antique.
All of their straps come with a small pocket built to hold SD cards, making them perfect for photographers on-the-go.
Ensure that your bags are tagged in style with Comrade PH’s leather bag tag. Their bag tag is a good travel companion and is durable enough to last a lot of trips. It also has a window-like opening, so that your personal information won’t be exposed unless needed. They can also add a monogram on the tag for a personalized touch.
