Bought these nice 4 inch wide straps for all my basses. Took a while to arrive but worth every penny in terms of comfort and quality. http://www.italiastr...-straps-uk.html

That plus Jim Dunlop Straploks on all my instruments... No other way to go for me!

I'd vote for Mono

I also have a neoprene Sandberg one which I use with a 5er Spector.

Both are highly recommended.

I won't touch anything with a buckle-all leather or all fabric, with straplocks for me.
Absolutely, All my basses have thick leather straps and schaller strap locks. I have really heavy basses so wouldn't trust anything with plastic fixings or thin leather ends.
Bass player for Musical Youth, my NotStrictlyJazz Quartet and occasional session gigs. Also Jazz Radio presenter and photographer.
I love and play Alembic basses but am not closed minded about learning about other basses and the business of bass.
