So, way, way back I mentioned that I was having trouble with my shoulder bag (which I still haven’t posted a product review for, but probably will soon now that this is sorted). While the size and pockets were just about perfect, I had a lot of problems with the nylon strap. It was adjustable so I could wear it cross-body, but the adjustment buckles would slip, so I was constantly re-adjusting it. In addition, that slippery nylon also frequently slipped right off my shoulder. It was pretty frustrating, especially since I loved so much else about the bag.
After some research, I ordered a Neotech strap. These are designed for laptop cases or camera bags, so they’re made to not slip and be comfortable. The clips shown in the image below are easy to remove, so I replaced the strap on my bag. I had a momentary qualm since the only way to remove the old nylon strap was to cut it, but now that I’ve used the Neotech strap for a couple weeks I know that I will never go back!
The broad padding is very comfortable and distributes weight well, and does not slip. The strap is still easily adjustable, and I can still wear it crossbody when I want to. I didn’t realise how much the nylon strap was aggravating my shoulders until after the change, so that was a really nice bonus.
I strongly recommend this brand, and so far is it holding up to wear well, so I can see transferring to to another bag in the future. For something relatively inexpensive, it’s a huge benefit!
