Although Flat nylon
and, Patterned Polyester
webbing are all popular choices for this strap because they have a "smooth feel" touch to it, only the polyester and patterned polyester don't bleed, don't stain, can be washed countless times without loss of any of the vibrant color, and have endless possibilities on colors and patterns. When worn around the neck it will not cause any kind of discomfort as far as "digging" into your neck or a rough scratchy feeling. Heavyweight
, lightweight polypropylene webbing
is also common because it is great for the outdoors. It has excellent UV protection, and doesn't absorb water quickly giving it a high resistance to rot & mildew. PLEASE NOTE:
We recommend polyester or nylon webbing for "skin contact" straps. Our polyester/nylon has a tight weave and a very smooth feel. So, for camera straps, where the strap is across the back of your neck, polyester/nylon would be more comfortable.
If using these patterned polyester webbing straps for a heavy item, please keep in mind that we recommend only holding 1/3 of the breaking strength of the weakest part of the strap. For example, Patterned Polyester Webbing 2" has a breaking strength of about 6500 lbs. However, a plastic swivel snap has a breaking strength of only about 100 lbs. So, with plastic hardware, you would not want to exceed about 30 lbs in your bag. Using metal hardware would increase your capacity to maybe 100 lbs. These are not Cargo Bag Straps. You would almost never haul around more than 40-50 lbs on your shoulders or neck. These Strapworks' Bag Straps are ideal for that application. Other polyester facts, polyester has a thickness of 0.06 to 0.065 of an inch, and a melting point of 500 degrees fahrenheit.
