Ask Wingman - Leather Camera Straps

We love hearing from our readers, and one of our readers Adam reached out to us for some advice.

Q. I am looking for a Leather Camera Strap for under $100, can you help?

Yes, yes we can. So you have that perfect camera and it’s looking super sexy but something is missing, you want it to be at hand when that perfect opportunity for a shot arises. Maybe your camera came with a strap that does all that but chances are its black and ugly, so we have three leather straps that your Wingman highly recommends.

RYNO: THE INCREDIBLE ONE-WHEELED MOTORCYCLE
Designed and manufactured by Portland-based company RYNO, this one-wheeled personal transportation device (of the same name) originally started out as an answer to a curios 13-year old girl’s question: “Could you make a motorcycle with just one wheel, like the one in the cartoons?” After telling his daughter yes, Chris Hoffman decided to set about putting his 15 years of engineering experience to the test, with the intention of making that answer a reality. What you see here is the result, “half the bike and twice the fun!”
With its appearance resembling something of a super-manly electric unicycle, or a Segway on steroids, the RYNO – which is in fact an acronym for “Ride Your New Opportunity” – provides an incredible alternative to bikes, scooters or skateboards, whilst also combining the ability to ride on roads or travel on paths. Using two SLA batteries the RYNO can hit speeds of up to 10mph, which is a lot faster than your average brisk walking pace, travelling up to 10 miles on a full charge, without stopping to refuel along the way, and without creating a single filthy emission either.
While a little practice may be needed before you master the RYNO, its creators reassure us that it is simple to use and hugely effective in day-to-day life, essentially becoming an extension of yourself. Now available all across the United States, you can decide for yourself whether you’re ready to join the one-wheeled revolution.

Turn Your Kitchen Into a Ping-Pong Arena

Here at Wingman we believe strongly in embracing your inner-child. When this popped up on our radar, we had to share it straight away. Not only is the multi-purpose design ingenious it also looks fantastic and will certainly not cramp your meticulous kitchen ethos.

CorkNet has been specially design to work on any table. Its combined length is 80 cm or 31.5 Inches. This size gives you a net over any table. The best part, it is freestanding so there are no fixings to worry about. Place them in the centre of your table and you’re ready to play! The clever design lets you take it with you. You can play on any table, whether it is a friend’s home, work or on holiday.

The full set comes with rackets, balls, plus the weighted cork dividers, which serve as the net. Measuring at 31.5 inches long, they’ll fit most kitchen tables, round or rectangular. Their free-standing design means no messing with complicated nets every time you want to play.

See that little hole in the side? That’s a specialised recessed spot to store the ping pong balls, so you’re not crawling around on the ground/pulling them out of your dog’s mouth after each shot.

The Quintessential Two-Person Tent

It’s not something we’re proud of, but, come on, admit it, we’ve all left it until the last minute to buy a cheap tent for the upcoming music festival, knowing that we’re probably going to just leave it there once we’re done, haven’t we? Well, if you haven’t then you are the noble exception to the rule, much like New Zealand-based Designer Nikolai Sorensen.

Having professed a strong grievance about the way that the carefree, festival-going hoi polloi continue to abandon their cheap, temporary canvas homes, Sorensen set about putting us all to rights with his very own tent that, we’re sure, nobody will be throwing away any time soon.

With his focus firmly set upon creating a tent with sustainability, style, longevity, and quality at its forefront, the Under Cover Camper was born; a two-person tent perfect for any occasion. Boasting durability in the wettest of fields and on the hottest of holidays, the Under Cover Camper places the value back into owning a luxurious, stylish tent. And you never know, with the knowledge of this stunning tent sitting in your trunk you may even be tempted to escape for a few more countryside getaways this Summer – so long as there’s a Wi-Fi hotspot nearby, huh.

The World’s First Double-Sided Backpack

While looking for a way to revolutionise quality leather goods, friends and product designers Alex and Andrei stumbled upon an ingenious way to reinvent the backpack: by making it two-sided. Following a meticulous design process; with genuine premium leather as their staple material, fair prices for their customers as a necessity and hand-crafted manufacturing as a must, Alex and Andrei’s company Chivote are aiming to change the way we travel with our tablets, laptops and other vital accessories for good.  By simply adjusting the strap at the top of the padded straps and twisting the backpack to reveal the reverse, switching your rucksack’s look from modern to classic or casual to smart has never been easier, practically giving you two great bags for the price of one.

With just a couple of weeks left to go on their Kickstarter campaign, Chivote will be hoping to reach their goal soon in order to bring their marvelous two-sided backpacks (which are now set to be made available in three unique colour-ways) to life, although if you’re not yet convinced by the full package, you can also pledge a cut price fee to get your hands on Chivote’s luxury leather pen case or wallet.

The Apogee of Quality Leather Rucksags

When paying a luxury price you expect a luxury result and that is exactly what Loyal Stricklin have created in the form of their Rich Tan Ruck-Sack. Made of 4 ounce Tan Horween Chromexcel leather – which, if you don’t know, is “a combination tanned leather that undergoes at least 89 separate processes taking 28 working days” placing it in the ‘fine wine’ equivalent category of leathers – this large rucksack is the culmination of an extensive design process and a meticulous method of production.

Trust us, you’re not the only one that spends hour after hour sitting in a crooked old plastic chair at work, wishing you could get away for a while. But wishing you could doesn’t make it happen and sometimes you need a trigger, something to push you from “one day we should..” to “today we are going to!” Now, we’re not saying that by purchasing one of these stunning leather rucksacks you will suddenly be filled with a desire to explore somewhere mountainous and magical. But, by purchasing one of these stunning leather rucksacks you will suddenly be filled with a desire to explore somewhere mountainous and magical.

Besides with an estimated delivery time of 4 weeks from order, that wait will provide you with the ideal amount of time to plan the incredible escapades you will inevitably embark upon as soon as this rucksack arrives. No, but seriously, just look at it. With this beautiful, rugged rucksack ready and waiting, what’re you going to do: not go on an adventure?
