Good strap recommendation?

Hi everyone!
Looking for a comfortable strap… Anyone care to recommend theirs? Thanks in advance!

I like the Aircells. They fit some guitars better than others though. I have two of these.

… where are you approximately?

If you’re in Europe, you may like this one. I have one for two years now, and one on order.

Not sure how well it would work on a J but probably fine. Both of my basses have pretty prominent top horns. more than a J, which is the only difference I can see affecting things. The aircells padding starts about 10cm above the top horn strap button, so it wouldn’t work well for a bass like a Hofner or Gibson with a strap button that wasn’t as far up or forward.

Heavy padding, more width than the typical 2 inch guitar strap, and a good return policy. What’s best for one person isn’t best for everybody. That return policy will come in handy till you get the one that’s best for you.

This is the strap I got about a month ago and I like it.

This is the strap I got only recently: https://www.ibanez.com/eu/products/detail/bws90_01.html.
Seems fairly comfortable for now. They also have one with thicker padding.

That’s even better than the ones I have, @eric.kiser! :wink:

Both are 3" . . . one smooth black and the other brown suede.

I ordered the following strap as I had 2 requirements:
a) it had to be padded
b) it had to be vegan

Furthermore I got myself some strap locks as Greg dropped nearly 2 times already:

I like this one since it has the easy adjust ability. It’s going to be my next strap purchase but I didn’t want to recommend it since I haven’t tried it.

That looks cool.

One I want to try is the GruvGear. Josh was recommending it a while back.

I have Levy’s Leathers 4" straps on both my basses. Very comfortable.

Some of these straps cost four times what I paid for the last bass I bought! :crazy_face:

There was a similar strap inquiry thread started in Jan 2019 by Ezekielrfernando with some good info… one of the recommended brands (including Josh) was the Gruv Gear Neoprene DuoStrap. I got one back then and its been great. (3.25 width, helps with neck dive and very comfortable even for a few hours of playing)
