Couch Camera Straps

I hope I am putting this in the correct place. I just ordered two straps from them. The quality of these straps is outstanding. I ordered the mint green for the wife and the old VW upholstery for me. The straps are made in Southern California and these guys are a pleasure to deal with. If you want a strap that will stand out these guys have it or can make it.


Here is a nice little leaflet they send stating that my strap was made from dead stock upholstery meant for 70s VW's




All the propaganda that was sent along with the straps.




I ordered two straps and a wallet, like I said these things are very well made.




Here is a terrible selfie of me wearing the one I bought for my wife taken with my iphone.





These things are top notch and I am very happy. If you want more info go to Best Guitar Straps | Vegan Belts | Vinyl Guitar Straps | Guitar Straps, Seat belt guitar straps and vinyl guitar straps, vegan belts
Thanks for taking the time for my rambling

I've been wanting the wallet for a while, but without being able to hold it first I am reluctant to part with the money. I do however have a blue seatbelt strap and the VW strap for two of my guitars. Planning on grabbing two more of their straps for my guitar collection.

i absolutely love their product, its built very well and looks awesome.

I'm trying to figure out which one I want for my 645....

I can tell you I am very pleased with the wallet, it is very sturdy and the stitching is flawless. I was torn between the VW wallet and the 1960s GMC wallet but I am a german car lover so we all see where I wound up.

From a vehicle point of view probably yes, but the tires are very important when talking about handling snow...
