    Has anyone used the 3” Lakota Leathers strap on bass?

    I bought one today but when I put it on my bass, I became worried that’s it’s too soft/supple for a heavier instrument. My bass isn’t heavy (~8 lbs) but I don’t really want to make this my regular strap if it’s going to stretch out quickly.

    Any help is appreciated!!

    Soft/supple = good and comfy!

    I have used Lakota exclusively for many years now, and they are 100% perfect for me right out of the box! I recently bought a Dean Exotica ABG and immediately ordered a Lakota strap for it! Highly recommend them, and they are all American made by the Lakota Sioux in South Dakota!

    Thank you! Definitely comforting to hear from someone who has used them for a while.

    I'll give this thread a little bump--my 2" Lakota Leathers strap has been going strong (and supple) for a couple of years now, and the exceptional comfort has completely spoiled me for other straps.

    Agreed, going on 2 years now with mine. By far the most comfortable strap I've used. So glad I listened to the advice in this thread and decided against returning it!

    The only Lakota strap I have slips of the strap buttons because it's so soft, it opens the holes. I decided not to use Lakota anymore, but I at least feel I made a contribution to the tribe.

    Try using a rubber washer ‘strap lock’, solves the problem cheaply!

    That's what I do, too. Totally secure.

    That's OK, I have a few other straps to choose from, but in case I do decide to use it gain, I'll do that.
