This is a hit for those that just want a simple and durable strap. The strap material is easy to wash and doesn't bleed according to longtime users. Some users have had theirs for more than 10 years without any durability issues.

Some users report dropping their instruments due to this being a basic strap but security will depend on your strap button or strap locks. The material, while strong, tends to irritate the neck from movement for some people.

Sometimes simpler is better. the Ernie Ball Polypro Guitar Strap is as simple as it gets. It's durable and widely available in different colors. For maximum security, it is best paired with larger strap buttons or strap locks.
