Let me say outright that the Hawkesmill Oxford is a very nice camera wrist strap. In fact, it’s probably the best strap I’ve ever seen, yet alone had the pleasure to use. – Shotkit
Oxford Leather Camera Wrist Strap
We tried dozens of leathers before settling on Horween Chromexcel for our Oxford leather camera wrist straps. We were looking for a leather that was durable and could take daily abuse, but that was soft on the interior when up against the skin. Horween Chromexcel is, in our minds, the only leather worth using on camera wrist straps. A photographer shouldn’t have to worry about their wrist strap. They should be able to use it and not have to think about it being uncomfortable, or worrying about it breaking. That’s what we’ve created with our Oxford leather camera wrist strap.
• Length: 22cm (8 3/4″)
• Width: 1.5cm
• Two colours available: black and brown.
• Several thread colours are available: black, dark brown, orange, navy and red. The default thread colour is orange for our brown straps and red for our black straps. Our thread comes from Amann & Söhne. A German textile company that has been in business since 1854.
• Horween Chromexcel leather. Known for its durability and softness, as well as its lack of colour-transference. Meaning, the dye will not rub off on your clothes.
• Recommended max weight is 5lbs. Although straps have been tested to support weight up to 30lbs without breaking or splitting.
• Lug mount. Fits all lug mount cameras, including Nikon, Leica, Olympus, Sony, Fujifilm and most 35mm vintage cameras.
• We use the finest quality 304 stainless steel split rings and provide you with multiple rings in case you ever need to replace them.

I can clearly, without hesitation, say that this is one of the finest leather camera straps I have ever seen or owned. The leather is soft, the stitching is flawless. As usual – you get what you pay for. Several websites have already labeled Hawkesmill as the best camera strap in the world and I have to agree 100%. – Read full review.

If you want one strap that’s absolutely perfect and gives you room to make adjustments accordingly, then spring for these straps. – Read full review.
Overall I absolutely cannot fault this strap so can comfortably give it a 10/10, and I’m generally fussy. Sure the price is high but so is the quality. Buy one of these and you’ll probably not need another for at least ten years. – Read full review.

I have owned a few “premium” leather camera wrist straps before this one. And to be honest, I didn’t see what was so “premium” about them. In fact, I owned one from another UK camera strap brand, using very similar materials and I was left feeling a little wounded. It was less expensive than this Hawkesmill strap, but not nearly as luxury. The branding, the leather, the stitching, it is all top notch. If you’re going to pay a premium price, make a premium product. Thank you for striving to make the best products you can.
It really shows in the final product!

By far my favorite strap! It is beautifully made, soft and really shines on my Leica M9. Great workmanship here!
The strap does not get in the way of the camera operation. The split rings go on way easier than my other straps, but seem just as durable. Very well thought out wrist strap.

I purchased this strap last year based on a recommendation from a friend who said it was his fave camera strap. I’m not usually fussed by these things but I have to agree with her. Tremendous job all. Keep it up!

These guys kept advertising to me, so I decided to take the plunge. And I am glad I did. This wrist strap is miles better than the junk on ebay. You don’t know how good it is until you use one.

Just to say thank you for the beautiful camera strap I have just received. Great design, soft and comfortable leather and really well made like my camera bag you made for me.

Having never used a wrist strap before I didn’t know what to expect. This is the perfect wrist strap for all day use. I have it on my wrist all day long and don’t ever feel tired or like its rubbing or uncomfortable. And Im never worried about the camera falling. The leather is different than any leather Ive tried before. It is really soft on the inside almost like suede.
