Works well, except for two problems.
James Young (Edison, NJ) 9/22/2017 11:07 PM
The strap is too long! Not everyone is 18 feet tall. I'm able to adapt it to my needs using using some common hardware. The second issue I have is the swivel. The swivel seems to be the weak point in the strap. To solve that problem, I bought snaps that don't swivel instead from strapworks.com.

Check the stitches

This strap may not work for short people, but I'm 6'4". I was having shoulder and neck problems before I got this thing, and now I'm doing great. You will definitely tell the difference when you're walking with a heavy parcel. Also, no leather dyes to stain your uniform. The only problem with this was the stitching. The strap failed about two weeks into use. When I took a look at the seems I found it was single stitch half way through the strap and double stitch the other half. It also only stitched across the width of the strap,no cross pattern for strength. This was the same way on both sides. After about 5 minutes at the sewing machine, the thing is much hardier. It's lasted me about a year now without incident. So, four stars because I had to do some work on it. I suppose it's still "union made."

better than leather strap
Michael Shaw (Toledo, OH) 1/26/2015 8:24 PM
This strap is much more comfortable than the postal issued leather strap. Purchasing my 3rd one at this time. There are 2 issues I have with this strap however. First it is too long. I'm 5'10" and I have to make it as short as possible and wear it across my body to get the satchel at the right height. Second, the swivels wear out quickly and separate which is why I've had to replace it twice. Lasts 3-4 years each time.

So much better than regular strap!

This strap sounds like a joke, but it really does make your mail bag carry a lot more comfortably. It won't work for you if you're a carrier that doesn't wear their strap over their head (some people wear their strap on the same shoulder as their bag), because it will slide off of your shoulder then. The only downside is that for myself and the other carrier in our office that uses this strap, you almost can't make the strap short enough, because of the built in length of the "shocks" and the extra long shoulder pad.

Love this strap!!!

I have used this strap for about 20 years. It is far superior to the leather strap that comes with our bags that I originally bought it because I am a vegan and don't use leather.
