Also for viola cases. Strong, adjustable, webbing straps with thick, 30mm wide neoprene (soft rubber) shoulder pads.

Pros: Good quality
Cons: Unfortunately far too short for my violin case - I have the attachment rings at the top and the bottom of the case. These straps will probably only work if you have the bottom attachment ring(s) partway down the back of the case.
Other: Very impressive service from Stringzone who refunded my purchase straightaway with no problems. Thank you to them. Reinforces my already positive view of The Stringzone.

Pros: Good padding and wide straps making carrying a heavy case much more comfortable.
Cons: The adjustment length on the straps is slightly shorter than I'd like, but still long enough.
Other: Good design and definitely worth the money.
Sturdy and comfortable - slightly clumsy design.
Pros: These replace the basic straps (just webbing, no padding) that came with my case and provide excellent padding, good sturdy clips and they feel very well made. They make my case much comfier and feel much more secure when travelling to and from my lesson (bus/walking). I had previously wanted to buy a different brand but had difficulty finding a UK stockist. These were a cheaper alternative (supplied in pairs) and seem like they will be ideal.
Cons: The metal security loops that come with these are a good idea in principle but are clumsy in practice. My case (basic styrofoam oblong case - came with my Stentor outfit) has just one D-ring at the top for both straps to fit into and the metal loops stick out and look messy at the top. I've tried just looping one through both straps but this restricts the movement of the straps at the top. It would have been better to have screw carabiner-style clips in the first place. I will remove the loops at the top of my case and just leave them on at the base, as this gets the most wear when travelling on public transport.
Other: As others have commented, the straps are quite short. They fit my case and my back perfectly (upper D-ring is about 1/4 of the way down the back of the case rather than at the very top) but this is with them at the longest setting. For different cases or broader shoulders, this could be an issue. String Zone provided excellent customer service, once again - the straps were out of stock when I ordered them but were delivered promptly once in stock (despatched yesterday and received this morning!) at no additional cost.
Big, comfy, easy to attach. Very strappy straps!
Pros: Straps are great with a very large padded area making the incredibly comfy. Each clip is augmented with a threaded steel wire loop attachment making them suitable for heavier cases and instruments too. Bought for my viola case as I cycle commute, making taking my instrument much nicer to carry around.
Cons: As new the straps were a little stiff, quickly remedied after a little use.
Other: A great set of top-quality straps I think would suit and instrument case.

Pros: Bought for daughter who teaches Suzuki violin. She commented that the straps were good and strong and felt very comfortable, and the buckles would last.
Cons: She commented that the straps were heavier than the previous ones by Gewa bought from you.
