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.

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.

    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.

    A Work Of Art!

    Published by Sandra Ingle on Aug 5th 2017

    I ordered a custom radio strap for our son, who just graduated from a recruit school here in Virginia as a graduation gift. When it arrived I was absolutely thrilled with the quality of it. It is beautiful. The name embossed on the strap was gorgeous. I know he will be very proud to wear this. Thank you so much!

    Best all around quality product on the market

    This radio strap is tough, strong and built with quality in mind. The material and hardware are excellent and the fine details with specific stitch and paint colors are an exceptional addition.

    Custom radio strap is perfect fit

    Published by Howard Orr on Mar 6th 2017

    I recently ordered a custom fitted radio strap. It arrived sooner than I thought ad it came out exactly as I ordered it. I've ordered several other items from Black Smoke and have always found the quality to be high and the fit to be perfect. Thanks for a great quality product. I will make another order soon.
