    Looking for a long strap for M9

    I have been a long user of Artisan & Artist accessories but lately I have been looking for a long strap which I can have across my chest.

    Any suggestions?

    A&A seems to quite short and the longest ones I have seen are 1050 or 1080mm.

    The length of stock strap that comes with your M is nice but I would like to have that rub protection on the nubs. I even considered X1 strap, which I think its one of the better simple leather strap I have seen but it doesnt have the nub protection or I dont think it will hold the weight of a M9.

    Luigi will make a strap to any length. He may be a bit slow answering his mail as he is on holiday right now.

    I bought a $10 domke pouch, cut the regular rings off the strap and put split rings on it, great length strap with a rubber grip stitched into it.

    My vote goes to the Luigi Deluxe strap.

    Thanks guys

    I was considering Luigi's but as mentioned he is on holidays. What I love about X1 is the smoothness. I wonder if Luigi can duplicate the finish.

    Strongly recommend the LumaLoop 'rifle-strap'-type strap. Most useful photo accessory you'll ever buy - totally changes the way you shoot.

    I use Domke Gripper with or without swivel. You can adjust the length and it's long enough for me.

    I thought about that. I have been quite skeptical. When I used to have D700, I thought I would work great but with M, I am not sure.

    Do you use it on your M system?

    I just ordered a longer strap (140 mm) from Luigi as I found that the standard length was a little too short. I also ordered it with carabiner clips instead of the split rings so that I can quickly swith to a wrist strap when desired. I just received my M9 about two weeks ago and Luigi's half case fits like a glove.

    Luigi makes great stuff, and he'll customize quite a bit for you.
