Thanks.

You can have it both ways. Classy leather and a Peak Design quick release. Mine is on the way to the USA from the UK.

I use Peak Design for my Xt-3 so I can switch straps as well as a capture clip for my PD bag.

But for the X100V, I wanted something a little more stealthy and kind of classic looking. I bought a wrist strap and a neck strap from Sailor Straps.

These are really nice looking and feeling straps...very well made.  I got a black wrist strap and a graphite neck strap.  Though I like the interchangablity of PD, I just felt like this look and feel fit the X100V better.

Gordy's! In my opinion the perfect complement to the X100 series cameras.

Definitely Gordys. Simple, stylish, durable.

This chap does some good stuff and can custom make. Not that expensive neither.

Sells quick release clips too.

I've used DSPTCH straps because they are quick release.

Gordy's leather straps are amazing. I've had mine first for an X100s way back in 2013 or so and now I use the same strap on a variety of cameras from X-T3 to M10.

Why I choose Peak Design

Me too. I also have the PD wrist strap and the adapter lugs that I put on a different strap. Lets me switch the straps to either my X-T2 or my X100F

One of the big reasons I got the PD system is so that I can quickly remove the strap and leave it off. If I am shooting indoors on a tripod I find that straps just get in the way. Also if I am shooting outdoors there is usually some wind and a strap will introduce movement on the tripod. If one is shooting long exposure you really want to avoid having the tripod move in any way.

Here is what the lugs look like installed on my X100F. I got some Nikon lugs off of ebay as these should minimize scratching the camera.

does classy = flashy? or simple and elegant? or....

Not sure what you mean by "classier". I think the Peak Design are fairly attractive. But there's a huge range of tastes here, I know. Personally, I got the all black 100V because I think it's "classy" and I got the Op/Tech strap for the same reason -- it's basic black, seems to match the camera. Fact that it's inexpensive was not important for me, but I'm not complaining. And like the Peak Design, it's a detachable strap that can also take a larger loop for over-shoulder use. At least I think that's true -- I only have the wrist strap right now.

Personally, I'm not eager for people to be eyeing my camera, but I certainly don't want them eyeing and admiring my STRAP. Could just be me, though.

Have a look at Simplr M1a : https://simplr.us/product/m1ultralight-camera-strap/

I tried the peak design clips and didn't like them. I found the PD too bulky for what's needed. What I like about the Simplr QD loops is they are thin; you can easily put the string between your fingers so as not to impede getting your finger onto the shutter button quickly.

With my X-T3 I use the same thing. Great system.

I use these

They do a leather neck strap with peak design anchors which is really cool.

I was about to order one of the Sailor Straps, as I really like the design, but the shipping was more than the strap, so I'm holding off. Too bad!

Same for me.

Recommend Peak Design Leash Camera Strap (Ash) - it's not too large and quite stylish.

Got it a few weeks ago for the X100v but finally bought a X-T3 .

I have a wrist strap and a larger neck strap from them too for carrying with a heavier lens.
