    I got a $50 Carvin gift certificate for Christmas from my sister and was thinking about getting one of these. Or is there one you would recommend instead?...........Thanks ............tom

    I like my padded, wide leather Levy's strap. I believe it was around 50 bucks, but well worth it. Don't cheap out on the strap. :D

    Just bought one the other day and put it on my heaviest bass, very nice. The price on it was $50 and I never thought I'd spend that much on a strap but it is well worth it.

    Garment leather, padded, and wide is the way to go! ;) I have several Levy's straps and love them...excellent quality.

    Most of my staps are Levy's straps, 10 or 11 out of 14 maybe. I also own a levy's gigbag, I use this one bag to take my basses out to gigs (I leave hsc's at home). I highly recommend Levy's stuff!

    I happened to aquire one with the used cirrus fretless I picked up awhile back. Still using only it, and it's still going strong. Comfy thing... I'd buy another.

  12. they're very nice, i got the "seat belt" leather one. Cost me about $80 CAD but it was well worth it. Excellent quality.

  13. I have the one from Carvin, and the answer is yes, it's 2.5" wide. Excellent quality though...it's a Levys.

    I've had my solid black padded 2.5" leather strap for a little more than three years and I swear by it. It's got strap locks and I just move it from bass to bass. They get even better when they're all broken in. Wow. This thread just made me appreciate my strap a lot more. :)

    Weight and neckdive aren't issues with my Levy 3" leather. Excellent padding, top quality leather, still looks like new. I use it with about a dozen basses with Dunlop Straploks.
