I know you guys won't beleive this but,.........I've settled on SKINNY straps for comfort. I use those old fender style things with the shoulder "pad" removed. So its only ,(I've never measured it) <what 3/8-1/2" wide? That skinny little thing just settles into a "nook" up near my neck,and stays there. Ends up keeping all the weight off of my shoulder bones. I switched years ago and I'll Never go back. NEVER!!
