Fitted Radio Strap 


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 below. To see how we recommend you wear your Fitted Radio Strap and why click here.

2nd Cord Keeper = is located at the front bottom of your strap to keep the cord next to your radio.

Flash Light Holder Custom = email pictures of your flash light 

Pen Holder = sewn on the front inside of your strap to keep your pen from snagging and coming out. 

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.

    These straps are awesome! I have had one for about 4 years now and use it every day. It has held up great so far and the craftsmanship is second to none. I just ordered another one a gift for a friend. Will definitely be buying again from Black Smoke!

    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.

    Amazing quality

    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.

    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!
