I’m addicted to these Souldier straps for my Fenders. That’s all. Slow news night I guess-
nice choices, they look great with the guitars they're on
time to put Souldier and others on the Christmas stocking list
Lakota Leathers on every instrument I own. Killer strap.
Those look cool. Is that a Rory strat? I like leather straps, but I also really like the cheap nylon ones that are easy to adjust.
Good eye. It’s a Rory Gallagher partscaster w Dimarzio area pickups
Nice job on that Rory strat. It just looks like it sounds great and that strap is perfect for it!
I was wondering if anyone has tried and stuck with one of those back support straps? They seemed to appear on the market three or four years ago, but they're honestly so unattractive. They seem to kill the very basic idea of the guitar being sexy.
I like the black DiMarzio Clip Lock straps. They're simple. They look good on any guitar. There's no wondering if they'll fall off the guitar. And switching one from one guitar to another is dead simple. I also like how the "slippy" material doesn't pull my clothes around.
I have a wide soft leather strap that I have had forever. I have the same strap locks installed on all my electrics and use the same strap.
Wide leather for me.
Each of my guitars has it’s own.
I want a “custom” strap
I’m scoping out makers.
I want something unique, and comfortable.
I wove one out of 550 cord. Something like 80 ft, but I left the tag end so a total of 100 ft. 4 years later and it looks and feels the same as it did when I made it. It's about 3" wide, with just enough give and no sharp edges. Most comfortable strap I've ever used. At some point I'd like to re-do it or make another one that's a little more finished-looking but sooo many projects...
I recently picked up the "Layla" strap, and I'm pretty dang pleased with that. I am pretty surprised they still make them.
Levy's leather straps on all my guitars.
One vote for Henry Heller suede straps.
I hadn't looked extensively, but I would like something in-between.Too hot, too cold thing. 4" seems too wide, and 2.5 too narrow.
I like the cushiony bass ones that have a bit of elasticity
I'm a tall guy, so I got a "Monkey Man" extra long strap a few years ago. It works well, but I discovered all I needed was an extra 5 inches or so over a regular strap. One of these days I'm going to just buy some seatbelt webbing, cinches, and some soft leather for the ends and make some for myself. Polypropylene webbing can be had in 3" and 4" widths.
I don't like colorful or busy-graphics straps. My favorite is this Neotech one with elastic and a wide pad.

Let me start this with "for me", I haven't found anything better than these Fender straps.
They are comfortable and as they break in, they get even more comfortable...
They are full double layered leather, the current Fender straps are a single layer of leather or with suede on the inside.
I have at least half a dozen of these in brown and black. Notice the monogram...
Hard to find this exact strap so I pick them up whenever I find them, usually on eBay or old stock in local stores.
Fender still sells them, but only in black and they want $40. I can generally find them for much less than that.
The brown ones seem to be made of leather embossed with unobtanium
What can I say, I am a creature of habit
Fully adjustable length (42”-55”) provides a versatile fit for most players.
Embossed leather Fender logo and guitar headstock print provide an understated, tasteful cosmetic look.
Thick three-ply leather and reinforced stitching deliver long-lasting stability.
I still have about a dozen of the old narrow Fender straps with the pad in the original packaging. I use those on Fenders and I use a wider strap for Gibsons/archtops.
