Strapworks' Bag Straps are used to clip onto a bag or camera to either drape around your neck or hang off your shoulder. These 1.5 inch webbing Bag Straps are available in 4 adjustment lengths:
- 1 foot to 2 foot adjustment
- 1 1/2 foot to 3 foot adjustment
- 2 foot to 4 foot adjustment
- 3 foot to 6 foot adjustment
Flat nylon webbing is the most popular choice for this strap because it has a "smooth feel" touch to it. When worn around the neck it will not cause any kind of discomfort as far as "digging" into your neck or a rough scratchy feeling. Heavyweight or lightweight polypropylene is also common because it is great for the outdoors. It has excellent UV protection, and doesn't absorb water quickly giving it a high resistance to rot & mildew.
Depending on the weight of the bag or camera, plastic swivel snaps are the most common end hardware. However, if you need stronger hardware, metal swivel snaps are recommended.
Other uses for this strap; binoculars, snare drums, purse, and anything else your creative mind comes up with. You can also add a shoulder pad, and now you have even more comfort for items you wear over your shoulder.
If using these 1.5" nylon webbing straps for a heavy item, please keep in mind that we recommend only holding 1/3 of the breaking strength of the weakest part of the strap. For example, FNW 1-1/2" has a breaking strength of 4800 lbs. However, a plastic swivel snap has a breaking strength of only about 100 lbs. So, with plastic hardware, you would not want to exceed about 30 lbs in your bag. Using metal hardware would increase your capacity to maybe 100 lbs. These are not Cargo Bag Straps. You would almost never haul around more than 40-50 lbs on your shoulders or neck. These Strapworks' Bag Straps are ideal for that application.
