CustomSLR Air Strap is a Breathable Camera Strap with Quick-Adjust Slider

CustomSLR just launched a Kickstarter campaign for its new Air Strap camera strap and has already blown through its campaign goal – achieving over $23,000 in pledges toward a $15,000 goal in less than 4 days.

CustomSLR Air Strap

The AirStrap is a $25 strap that CustomSLR touts as a lightweight, breathable, and versatile alternative to traditional camera straps. Key features include:

  • Breathable vents and moisture wicking fabric channel heat and sweat away from your shoulder to keep you cool.
  • Cushy neoprene padding absorbs shock for maximum comfort.
  • Quick-adjust slider lets you shorten the strap to keep your camera secure at your side. When you need to take a photo, just pull and slide the strap to a longer length.
  • Rotating buckle swivels, so the strap moves with you for better flexibility.
  • Versatility. The Air Strap is compatible with most cameras. With an optional attachment, it can easily attach to any bag, such as a laptop bag or duffel bag.

The campaign lasts through January 9, 2014, so there’s still plenty of time to get a Kickstarter order in. The Air Strap is expected to be shipped to customers in February 2014.

What if that shitty plastic swivel lock breaks? What if my camera hits the ground? What if I just stick to a real strap without plastic bits.

Hey Jason,

Our straps are rated for 13 pounds. We have been using the swivel for many years now on our Split Strap and have not had any customer complaints. We our buckles from Acetal resin. Even some of our photographers carry Phase Ones with 204mm lens and 1DX with a 400 2.8

I’ve been running Custom SLR straps for a while now and have never had a problem with the swivel. I’m not a fan of plastic at all, but in this usage it’s perfectly fine and extremely durable.

Looks nice, but how is this different then the Joby UltraFit?
