mod. Camera Strap Review and Giveaway

 I love my camera and most of all, I love when I can actually have a comfortable and stylish strap for it.  Have you heard of the company mod.? mod. is a mother and daughter owned business created by Jeannie Cheatham and Amber Clay. Basically Amber was on the search for a new camera strap, but she found nothing but low quality straps and they were not very stylish at all.  She then began making her own strap covers using the existing base she already had. She made them on her grandmothers sewing machine. That is where Jeannie came in to help. The business then went from there! They have also expanded their product line by adding designer sleeves for laptops, tablets and e-readers as well as zipper ID bags. 

More about the products from their website:
Attention to detail as it relates to durability, quality and style are very important to us at mod. All of our straps have durable webbing throughout and have been tested for strength and durability by a licensed engineer to withstand a “pull down” weight of 70-90 lbs. depending on the style chosen. The decorative portion of the strap is 33 inches. Our Classic and Premium straps as well as all our accessory bags and cases are lined with our signature lush fabric for ultimate comfort. All fabrics are personally hand-selected and all of our products are proudly manufactured in the United States.
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with mod. on reviewing one of their camera straps. I chose one of the DSLR/SLR Style straps. I went with a premium strap
This new Black Polka Premium Strap is just the cutest! My husband and I took a recent trip to the zoo and I was very impressed the strap was so comfortable! I walked around for a good three hours and this strap did not hurt my neck at all. There is a crushed velvet like material on it too, that made it very easy to carry around my neck.  I like the feature to unsnap the straps from the camera too. 
 Did you know that there are 24 different Premium Straps to choose from? I chose this one because the flowers and polka dots are just the cutest. 

Want to buy this strap? You can purchase this Black Polka Premium Strap for $48.50 on the mod. website!
