If YOU'VE been squinting at online photos of these straps for YEARS, like myself (& maybe mulling those clever captions) but ya just can't decide - let me tell ya: The work is even more exquisite than it looks. Every detail is master crafted and the leather top quality. The Whiskey Brown version is like some insane chocolate confection in one of those high tone bakeries, the tiny stitching absolutely perfect, and when I adjusted it to length and slung the ol' Rickenbacker into
place it felt like some favorite old leather coat or a hug from that fits-just-right hot stuff honey badger. Yeah, I liked it, can ya tell? I sprung for the extra long tongue (based on another review) but needn't have. But it's made so well I'm keeping it as back-up. Listen, this is one of those material objects that'll bring you joy every time you use it, and be in perfect working order in your estate, after you've made your final bow off the stage. You'll impress your next of kin one last time as they contemplate it. And a year from now, you won't even be able to tell you threw that chunk of dough at it, but you'll have the damn strap. Don't screw up your life by finding some cheap-ass version; get the real one. I'm sorry I waited as long as I did, I really am. This is your music we're talking about - don't dick around! Clear your mind and see which of these really calls to you and place your order. You'll see I'm giving it to you straight. Then you can start plotting for the next one.

"Using [an Anthology Gear Guitar strap], you immediately recognize that the team behind it cares about guitars and guitar players. It makes you want to put the guitar on."
"It is actually mind blowing to discover the difference a great strap makes in the geometries of playing guitar. Greater relaxation, and so less fatigue, from better support for the instrument and from the feel of the strap distributing the weight better on my shoulder and back, along with the really perfect texture/friction of the body side leather of the strap makes the playing experience surprisingly improved in several ways, including showing up with greater sensitivity, speed and dexterity, and less stress, so decreased soreness.
I’ve been playing steadily for 50 years and had not imagined that a “mere strap” could make such a contribution to my playing experience. Throw in the fact that it looks bitchin’ cool as a bonus. I hesitated getting one of your straps at first because it seemed a bit expensive for a strap, but OMG, what a great investment!"
