All leather hand strap for DSLR with or without battery grips, comes with arca swiss compatible QR plate with slots for the strap to fit.
A bit different to the usual synthetic straps with a double layer strap and smaller non bulky hand pad.
Well made with very strong stitching, should last awhile.
It also doesn't get in the way of any tripod plate.

Black with red stitching for those who need it to compliment their L lenses.

Shown here with a 5dm2 and BG-E6 connected to the strap lug on the base of the grip, without using the qr plate.

Looks to be very high quality and looks cool, but I do not think that would be very comfortable. I would not like hard leather to be pressed against the back of my hand while shooting. I would prefer something softer with padding and more flexible than hard, so I can turn my hand into different position when I am shooting at wired angles.

Don't really have that problem, the padded section is 2 piece leather, a firmer outer shell to keep the pad shape and a very soft padder inner layer. The inner layer being kid leather conforms to the hand shape after a while.

I actually prefer the leather, it's doesn't seem to flop around as much as the synthetic grip I have and retains it's shape better.

I just purchased one and it's a very comfortable strap. Top of the line in quality and function.

I have both a Herringbone and the original Canon handstraps. I prefer the Herringbone. The hard leather provides a sort of structure that is very comfortable when shooting.

This looks like a good choice to put on my G11. A number of us have posted about hitting buttons unintentionally when gripping the '11. Mine goes off to never-never land, and I lose time turning the camera off, then back on...And I have have to take photos alone, because the language isn't nice...

Thanks!

I like the red stitching on the black leather -- goes with black L lenses rather well ;)

This looks like a slightly less expensive version of the Markins strap which is about $50. I've been using the Markins for about a year and it's fantastic, with the same softer leather inner surface. Very comfortable for hours of use. I love the red stitching. I wonder what Noinks are saying.

Maybe there'll be one with yellow stitching for them.

So do you need to use the plate that comes with this grip or not?

If your using a grip, you don't need to use the plate.

Cheers mate, its a good looking handstrap.
I really don't like my neckstrap and have been looking for a handstrap and this one looks like a beauty.
