Fitted Radio Strap 

GET RID OF BUCKLES!

If you are like many seasoned firefighters and dislike a buckle on your radio strap we offer our “Fitted Radio Strap”. Our Fitted Radio Strap is made to your exact length and specifications to avoid the bulkiness of the buckle and the nuisance of the flapping tongue.  Our “Fitted” straps are made with strong high tensile strength yet supple leather that will accompany you through many years if not your entire firefighter career. All of our radio straps are made from 10/12 oz thick saddle grade leather, well above industry standard, and our quality metal hardware will meet and rival any hardware that is currently used through-out the industry. As our way of saying THANK YOU personalize your radio strap with names, initials or numbers, completely FREE of charge. To properly size your custom radio strap please follow the sizing instructions.

Light Smoke Hardware
Stamping is FREE!
Stitching is FREE!
1 Color Paint is FREE!

Comes standard with: Mic Tab, Cord Keeper AND Anti Sway Strap! (HT Holder is sold separately) 

When most Firefighters purchase a radio strap they adjust it to where they like to wear it at and never adjust it again. We have seen our guys use Duct Tape, Zip Ties and many other creative things to keep the buckles from coming apart. We recommend following the sizing directions and get rid of Radio Strap Buckles! 

  1. Take a piece of webbing, string or rope over your head and shoulder, bring two ends together at your hip where you want the strap to end and attach to your radio holster. When doing this stand up straight for best measurements results. Take a tape measure record the length in inches. Please note this measurement on the comment box during your check out.
  2. Take a second measurements from where the two ends meet at your hip to your collarbone. This measurement will determine where you would like your radio mic clip to be positioned. Please note this measurement on the comment box during your check out.
  3. Take a 3rd measurement from the bottom of the back of the webbing, string, rope or your old strap to your waist. This measurement will be for your Anti Sway Strap Location. We want this to be at your waist level. 6- 8 inches below is the norm we are seeing. (This means your overall strap length should hang around 6-8 inches below you waist. SEE MEASUREMENT #1) This will keep your HT Holder hanging below your turnout jacket for easy access during Fire Operations.

    Super clean look with black and brass. Fitting measurements on your site were easy to follow and the final fit is exactly how I wanted it. Sway strap location is also spot on. Leather is excellent quality. Thank you!

    Radio Strap and HT holder

    Published by Emma on Jul 24th 2020

    Extremely pleased with the radio strap! My fiancé loved it so much as a gift, he wore it washing the dishes, lol!! As some of the other comments say, it takes awhile to receive the product, but it is well worth the wait for the quality!! I received an update from black smoke when the status of my order changed every time! Just be patient! Definitely will order from here again in the future.

    The craftsmen ship of the radio strap is second to none and the personalized components truly make the gear one of a kind. The quality of the leather and construction will allow me to use this strap and holster for the rest of my career. The best gear purchase I've made in a long time.

    Amazing quality

    Published by John Fitzpatrick on Apr 8th 2019

    Purchased 2 of these fitted radio straps one blacked out and one with custom stamping and paint. They came out perfect, the quality is top notch and built to last and handle some serious abuse! The crew at Black Smoke are a solid group and are professional and personal!

    Worth the wait

    Published by Greg on Aug 3rd 2018

    I’ll be up front with the only downside and that is the wait time. It was around 11 weeks to have it in my hands, however it was worth the wait. Custom made to my specs, outstanding craftsmanship and attention to detail sum this up. Using it on my last set of shifts at work it was clearly a vast improvement over the cheap adjustable ones our department uses. I’m happy to have invested in a quality radio strap from Black Smoke Apparel that will obviously last my career.

    Awesome!

    Published by Christopher Rivera on Mar 8th 2018

    Quality is through the roof. You can feel and see the quality leather as soon as you take it out of the box. Stamping is clean and crisp. Paint looks better than expected. Looking forward to having this for the rest of my career! Thanks Black Smoke!

    best strap ive owned to date

    Published by jay on Oct 7th 2017

    Best strap I've owned in 13 years in the fire department. It's built well and the leather is thick. I got the case to go with it and this will be the last strap/holder combo I'll have to buy.
