As you can read in some of my other reviews 4V Design makes some good looking and very good shoulder straps, like the Lusso Large Top and the Sella. But they also make great wrist straps for people that prefer keeping their camera in their hands. For instance the very pretty Ergo Large wrist strap. 4V Design has added a new strap to the collection: the Lazo wrist strap. The 4V Design Lazo is a little different from the Ergo, it is made primarily from soft cotton webbing instead of leather for the Ergo. It is also adjustable in size and a little more affordable (40 euro’s vs. 54 for the Ergo). Luckily it still offers the great 4V Design style and craftsmanship as all the other 4V Design products do. In this quick review I’ll tell you more about it.
The 4V Design Lazo wrist strap is available in two colours. There is a brown version with a dark brown cotton band and lighter leather details (same colours as the Lusso Large Top I’ve reviewed earlier). And there is a subtle black version I’m reviewing here. Both look equally pretty, but the brown version stand out from the crowd a little more. The black version is very subtle and looks great on a black camera. For a silver camera I would choose the brown version.
The 4V Design Lazo itself is made from 20mm wide soft cotton that is very durable, flexible and lightweight. The cotton band is set in black leather adding to the durability. As usual the leather used by 4V Design is real Italian, high quality leather that stays pretty and doesn’t crack. The sides of the leather are hand painted in the same colour as the rest of the strap. Just a small detail that shows how much attention goes in to making the 4V Design products. The leather is stitched very precise and there is a small 4V logo embossed in it.
The 4V Design Lazo uses a solid brass buckle for adjustment. In the black version of the strap the brass buckle has a black chrome finish that looks very good and matches the colour of the band. You attach the strap to your camera with a smaller loop that is made of polyamide, that is both durable as strong. You can attach the strap by looping it through the attachment on the camera itself, making the whole strap a little shorter. In the box there is also a small keychain ring that you can use to attach the strap to your camera if you prefer to use the whole length of the strap.
