FAQ

 

How long does it take to ship?

We ask our buyers to give us a 8-9 business days before shipping to ensure our straps meet our strict quality assurance requirements and keep up with our orders as a small business. 

Since we are a small business, all our BOA’s are Made-To-Order, so that nothing goes to waste. Also, this means we have a limited number of craftsmen, but all our BOA’s are USA made.

How it’s measured?

We measure each strap from one end of the loop to the other end of the loop. We also offer custom BOA lengths in increments of 5 inches, this comes with a fee of $7.00 for every 5 inches added. Please contact inquire@monarchstrap.com to place your custom order.

What length should I get?

It depends on your height and where you like your camera to sit. The average person is about 5 foot 8 inches tall, and if they like the camera to sit on their chest, then the 35 inch is perfect. For the average height person, the 40 inch strap will sit at the top of belly area, 45 will be about mid belly, with 50 inch straps reaching the waistline. Measuring tape works great for visual representation, from strap end to end around the neck.

Which connector should I get?

The split ring is the go to for most cameras, such as the Leica M or any camera with a stud protruding out that has a hole for a ring to go in.

The Hook Clip is good for DSLR's that have a bar, recessed at the top corner of each side.

We also have a Soft Loop Connector I recommend for the Leica SL camera. 

Hasselblad V connectors are great for your Hasselblad 500 series camera!

Why the premium?

You're paying for a handcrafted good, that's made to last through the abuse you put it through.

How long does each strap take to make? 

Each strap has around 4.5 hours of work put into it.  From the leather work, to the construction of the core. You're holding a piece of our time put into perfecting your strap.

Why use Paracord 550?

We often need gear that is able to function in a ways it wasn't quite intended to.  What’s unique about Paracord is it was designed to operate in ways outside of its initial intended use.  Paracord has answered millions of unexpected occasions in previous years and we believe this is the case for years to come.  Which is why Paracord was a great medium for us in offering products with both great form and function.

What kind of cameras does this work with?

Our straps are compatible with any camera that a 1/2" ring can be attached to. 

We now have Hook Rings for DSLR’s and cameras with a thin attachment point available too.
