I've pretty much decided slingstrap that I made a thread about earlier.

Now what about wrist strap?

 

https://www.amazon.c...ak Designs Cuff

 

or

The plus side with Peakdesign is that it's easily detachable and I can attach the slingstrap easy. But the Gordy looks more discreet and less bulky.

 

Thoughts?

Take a peak at Gordy's camera straps.

Excellent choice!  I've been buying from Gordy since my X-E1 days back in 2013.

I'm a real fan of the Cam-In cotton/leather wrist straps. You can sometimes find them on Amazon but always find them on eBay. I've used one on an X-T1 and X-E2 previously and now have one on my X-T2 and X-T20.

I went for Gordy's. I received it today. Not sure if I should've got longer one. I went for the regular size. What size do you people have?

I'm a big fan of this Tap & Dye wrist strap. It's incredibly comfortable and the leather is very durable and high quality. Gordy's makes a great product too though. I have the Tap and Dye on my X-Pro2 and a Gordy's on an X-E1.

For leather maintenance, I use Montana Pitch Blend once every other month, sometimes more frequently depending on the weather conditions I've been shooting in.
