I use the small "Domke Gripper" a little bit modified with smaller plasticparts from an other strap and with triangle rings from my old Minolta X-300s.

Nice.

 

I pretty much exclusively use those straps as I fine they are brilliant and of course, priced well were that a consideration.

 

But then also, I'm a huge fan of Domke stuff as I find them to be just right.

Quick update on my Benz B strap. I'm traveling in Thailand and Bali-  really giving it a workout. This strap is exactly what I was looking for.  The combination of suppleness and strength seems unique. It just feels great around my neck and in my hand; it looks great too.

 

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Highly recommended.

 

Here's a pic of the strap in action at a market in Amalpura, Bali.

Hi there. I'm new on this forum : first post.

 

I use "Arte di Mano" waxed cotton strap.  www.artedimano.com

 

The light brown color suits the titanium grey Leica Q, and it's very flexible and strong.

I use the original Q strap - it’s perfect

 

The original grey rope strap coming with the titanium Q, is too short for me and not very flexible.

I've been using Peak Design straps of all kinds, and bags.  For everything (Q, DSLR, TLR, antiques)

For the Q I have two favorites which are interchangeable in seconds!

 

Strap:  The new "Leash" as a sling or neck strap.  https://www.peakdesign.com/product/straps/leash

 

One Handed:  The new "Cuff" is the perfect Q one hander.  Quick, safe, easy!  https://www.peakdesign.com/product/straps/cuff

 

I also use their "Capture" (https://www.peakdesign.com/product/clips/capture/) on the "Pro Pad" (https://www.peakdesign.com/product/clips/propad/)

 

When traveling the Q is either on the Leash sling strap or it is on the cuff while active shooting.  I prefer one handed when busy.  The Q is perfect !

When done active shooting, I move the Q from Cuff to belt mounted Capture where it safely rests while climbing, whatever.  And the cuff wraps around my wrist, ready in an instant.

 

The entire system is guaranteed for life, feels bulletproof, and cost less than a single high end leather strap.

I'll add a picture when I get to my home office...

Peak Design system for the Leica Q

Left: the new version of the "Leash" attached to Q's side and bottom.  The new plate allows full access to battery/card door!

Middle: one of the connectors.  Note, the attachment will not scratch anything, yet holds 200 pounds.

Mid-Right:  The new "Cuff" which attaches to one side of the Q to allow one-handed operation, then wraps around your wrist when the Q is detached.

Right: The "Capture" with "ProPad" (and mounting plate) which allows the Q to safely attach to your belt.  Note that the bottom plate (ARCA compatible) does block the access door.  I use this when carrying tripod into woods.  Rarely need access door of Q and the plate is quickly removed when needed.

I now have boxes of other straps since I use Peak Design straps on every camera.

Peak has a capture plate that doesn't block the battery/memory card door.  It's the one that comes with the "non pro" version of the Capture.  I have it on my Q.

Same for me and the beauty is that it is flexible enough to be both a wrist strap with a little wrap round the wrist or a shoulder/neck strap when required. Looks good too!!
