TRP Camera Straps is now Nauti Straps! Find us HERE!
I’ve been building my own camera wrist straps for the last couple years. After fielding many questions stemming from the blog, with my cameras showing up adorned with these straps, I’ve started to sell them. I use very high end yachting line that is built to be used in the most demanding sailing venues in the world. Aside from working as a photographer, and photography blogger, I also work in the sailing industry, and have adapted this rope into camera straps and for various projects over the years.
I have sold these straps through my blog for a few years now, but I’ve switched it all over to Nautistraps.com now. Pricing is the same for the Vector and Cascade wrist straps, and now I’m offering two new shoulder strap options with others in development!
You can order directly through the new, Nauti Straps online store HERE which has the option to pay via PayPal, or CC now! If you’d like to order here, I still have the Vector and Cascades available directly here through PayPal links as listed below. The links here include shipping where on NautiStraps.com, the shipping is separated (but the same cost).
These are all hand built by yours truly, and done so with pride, care and attention to detail. Please allow 1-3 days from the time you place your order, to allow me to build one for you. Time in transit depends on location, but normally varies between about 2-5 days in the US. You can see what others have said at the bottom of the page, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
CASCADE WRIST STRAP
Available now in 4 different colors for $37usd delivered in the USA ($46usd delivered outside of the USA), the Cascade strap fixes to the camera via a strong, 170 lb test split ring and can be adjusted via a rubber O ring anywhere along the strap’s length to fit any wrist. Made of a high performance, 8mm dual braid dyneema (spectra) and high tenacity polyester rope, this strap sits comfortably on the wrist. Low profile and strong with a unique, mottled cover for a complimentary, contemporarily nautical statement when attached to your camera.

VECTOR WRIST STRAP
Available in four colors, using a new, high tech blended, 24 plait cover material, the Vector strap is a light, low profile, comfortable contemporary shooter’s strap. If looking to save weight in the bag, this is a great strap. Fits all sized cameras well, and fits to the camera strap lug via a strong, 170 lb test split ring. The strap itself is hand spliced and finished with high strength, polyester whipping line and includes an adjustable O ring to secure the strap to your wrist keeping your camera safe.

Let me know what you think about them, send me a picture of the strap in use and a link to your website, blog or flickr page so that we can connect with you! Here are some thoughts from people using the wrist straps:
From Jeroen in The Netherlands
“I have been looking long time for the right strap to accompany my much beloved GM1. What I was something that would close easy around my wrist and the Cascade does! I am very happy to have found this special 7mm Cascade. Support by Tyson has been fast and excellent!”
From Joe Maggio
“Love my new straps. Thx!!!”
From Giorgio Lumacconi (Click here to visit and see more from Giorgio)
“My new Cascade Strap looks cool in my Om-d!!”

“Here is my new strap on my camera. I really like it. The wider diameter I think is a real bonus. It distributes the weight of the camera a bit better perhaps.
The strap is great and I can only say thanks again!”
From Chris (Most Deadly) Click HERE to visit Chris and see more of his photography on Flickr:
“Ive used many wrist straps in my time but the Garda Strap from Tyson Robichaud Photography is something a bit special…First off you notice that due to the straps thickness the weight of your camera is better distributed across the wrist, giving the illusion of a lighter camera, perfect for the long shooting sessions and all-dayers…Secondly, this thing is as strong as an ox; if you watch the video on the t&t section you’ll see that the super strong Dyneema runs through the core of this strap…In conclusion, this strap looks cool as hell but more importantly has the strength to provide real security and peace of mind. I can’t recommend this highly enough.”
“Loved it…. thanks!Images are for your future customer’s gallery… 🙂Best regards!
“Received the strap and hooked it onto my NEX7 the day I got it – looks and feels awesome. Quality is great, there’s nothing like a hand-made product produced with care. Thanks so much, I hope you continue to have good interest in it!”
“Well Tyson…I think you have created a winner here…I do not think there needs to be any changes…you adding the little cinch was a great idea…I used it this weekend in some cold weather here in the mountains to shoot some rugby…and though it was not below freezing it was cold and this wrist strap remained soft and supple…did not even notice I had it on…the only thing I will change and only at certain times is the red tape…I like it for all other times except when I am going out to do street photography…a simple piece of black gaffers tape solves that issue…but really for all other purposes I like the red…it makes it more visible…when I lay it down somewhere it will make it easier to find…thanks again…I will use this daily…so I will keep you posted on the wear and tear.”
