    I've got two Moody straps both with suede backing. They are great straps for sure. I can't think of a reason to invest the extra $35.78 to get the leather backing.

    Suede is better in my opinion, becasue it doesn't slip on your shoulder as easily. So less neck dive.

    +1 ... I have two 4" straps with the suede backing and they are definitely the most comfortable. I don't see a reason to go with leather backing

    Hmm the talk bass straps look cool, but how do i order the longer strap ? do i buy the strap and the extra adjustment thing ?

    Thank you

    If you order suede it will help hold the instrument in place (ie. neck heavy)...if you move your instrument around...the buttery soft leather (glove leather) would be best. Feel free to call us here in the office anytime with these kinds of questions~it often comes down to personal preferance~ BUT~ if you want the KICK ASS bass cleff ~ they are exclusive the talkbass.com and are suede backed only...

    Definately get the Talkbass one. It's worth it. The suede is great.

    I just got the 4" suede-backed strap in all black and love it. It looks gorgeous, is extremely well made, comfortable on my shoulder and keeps my slightly neck heavy TBird from slipping. I like the fact that it's not padded, with supple leather that conforms very nicely to the contours of my shoulder and distributes the weight of the bass evenly.

    I've owned 2 3" leather backed straps. Never had a problem with slipping . Always stayed in place.
